2.2" Otodus Shark Tooth Fossil In Rock - Eocene

This is a large 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 still embedded in the natural rock it was found in.

These teeth are collected during the massive phosphate mining operations. While teeth of Otodus are very common fossils at the mines, large, good quality specimens are hard to find as they are often destroyed by the mining equipment.
