Serrated 2.87" Auriculatus Shark Tooth - Dakhla, Morocco

This is a serrated 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 2.87" long and while the serrations are a bit worn, most are still visible. Like nearly all of these teeth which are almost always found broken there is some repair work to the root and cusps to put it back together.
