Serrated 3.61" Auriculatus Shark Tooth - Dakhla, Morocco

 
This is a sharply 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 3.61" long and has sharp serrations/tip. The vast majority of these teeth are found fractured and thus require repair. This tooth is no exception.

There is some repair work at the very base of the blade.
