3.64" Auriculatus Shark Tooth - Dakhla, Morocco

This is a large tooth of the mega-toothed shark, Carcharocles auriculatus. It is believed Carcharocles auriculatus was closely related to the Megalodon but lived nearly 10-20 million years earlier.

This tooth was collected from the Late Eocene aged deposits of the Western Sahara Desert in Morocco. It's 3.64" long but is fairly worn with most of the serrations missing and the cusps have been restored.
