Huge, 3.2" Otodus Shark Tooth Fossil In Rock - Eocene

This is a large fossil tooth 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 rock it was found in.

The buyer could easily expose more of the tooth. If the rock is soaked in water for a few hours it becomes much softer and easier to remove the excess rock from around the tooth.

Otodus is an extinct mackerel (Lamniformes) shark that lived during the Eocene, approximately 54 million years ago. This is the same family of sharks that includes the Great White and the largest shark ever known, the Megalodon. These teeth are collected during phosphate mining operations near Khouribga, Morocco. While Otodus teeth are common fossils at these mines, large, good quality specimens are hard to find since they are often destroyed by the mining equipment.
