1.83" Otodus Shark Tooth Fossil - Eocene

This is a very well preserved 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 near Khouribga, Morocco. This tooth is completely free of the surrounding matrix and is a top quality specimen.

These teeth are collected during the massive phosphate mining operations. While teeth of Otodus are common fossils at the mines, most of them are small and broken.
