Description
Set of Fossil Shark Teeth - finely serrated - Collection of Palaeocarcharodon orientalis (Pygmy White Shark) (10)
PALEOGENE-Paleocene, Thanetian (56.0–59.2 million years) - Africa

LOCATION: Oued Zem, Morocco
FORMATION: Ouled Abdoun Basin (Phosphate beds)
SIZE: 39.1 mm • 1.54 in (The Biggest)

DESCRIPTION:
This is one of the sharks with sharpest and most serrated edges of all the assemblage in the Paleogene phosphate quarries of the Oulad Abdoun Basin (Morocco). The lateral serrations are really spectacular. It is still sharp, with an intact tip. Its root is also completely original, not like many which are sold online. It is difficult to find better specimens than this one.

A physical certificate of authenticity is provided free of charge with every fossil we sell. This is our lifetime guarantee.
