£1,442.00 GBP

The frame displays 169 prehistoric-fossilised teeth of Otodus Obliquus shark, an extinct mackerel shark, larger than today's modern Gt.whites. A unique 'the fossil store' design using only the highest quality fossilised shark teeth to create a beautiful wall of art. A perfect gift for any avid palaeontological collector or enthusiast.

The fossil sharks teeth date from the Phosphate deposits of oulad abdoun basin, Ben Guerir, Morocco. The period of time known as the early Palaeogene and Eocene periods [Cenozoic age], the Palaeocene to Eocene, occurred around 66,000,000 to 50,000,000 million years ago.

The Otodus obliquus was an enormous Macro [predatory] shark with the largest discovered and recorded fossil tooth measuring 10.4 cm in length. With each fossil discovery, we can determine more about these powerful sharks which roamed the prehistoric seas in this Cenozoic era. Otodus was a fearsome predatory shark growing to a maximum length of 39 feet. Their prey being smaller marine mammals including smaller sharks.

Scientist and palaeontologists theorise the Otodus obliquus ancestry connects to that of the great Megalodon from the Miocene era, which has been evolving for around 30,000,000 to 40,000,000 years up to the modern Great white sharks. As we understand this then is the lineage of Carcharocles.
