3+" Otodus Shark Tooth Fossil (Restored Root)

This is a beautiful fossil of the extinct, giant mackerel shark, Otodus obliquus. It's Eocene in age, approximately 54 million years old and comes from the phosphate deposits in the Oulad Abdoun Basin of Morocco. This tooth is still embedded in the natural matrix it was found in and quite large for the teeth from this shark.

These teeth are collected during the massive phosphate mining operations. While teeth of Otodus are common fossils at the mines, ones of this size and quality are quite hard to come by.

Please note a significant portion of the root of this tooth has been RESTORED.
