Details

Selection of framed shark teeth 1002mm in frame size, hundreds of teeth contained in a glazed collection from the phosphate beds of Khouribga and central, Morocco, North Africa. We have collected a variety of shark teeth and designed and created a unique product and the perfect gift for avid fossil collectors and enthusiasts. These extinct shark teeth date back to the late Paleocene epoch around 70 to 50 million years ago.

 

The Otodus obliquus was a very large Macro-predatory shark with the largest recorded tooth measuring 10.4 cm in length. With each discovery, we are able to determine more about these powerful sharks which roamed the prehistoric seas of the 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, evolving for around 30,000,000 to 40,000,000 years and now down we can enjoy the modern Great white sharks. This is the lineage of Carcharocles as we understand it today.
