Beautiful Carcharocles Auriculatus Tooth - 2.80"

This is a stunning 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 2.80" long and exhibits great preservation, including gorgeous enamel, sharp serrations and good cusps. It's rare to find Auriculatus teeth from this region in such good condition. There is one small repair to the tooth, the left cusp was broken and has been reattached.
