Description
Megatooth Shark - Teeth (2) - Carcharocles sokolowi - 75×57×14 mm
PALEOGENE-Eocene, Priabonian (33.9–37.8 million years) - Morocco

Two rare teeth and ancestors of the extinct large tooth shark; Carcharocles megalodon. These teeth comes from the region around Boujdour in Western Sahara of Morocco. Teeth from the Priabonian are rare in Morocco. I myself have visited this area a few years ago. These teeth are found in quarries in the interior (see photo). The teeth are located in loose sand (rock) and are usually damaged and worn. The left tooth (see photo 1) is glued. The resulting crack has been filled up. The right tooth is completely original. These teeth belong to the better ones found here. The teeth have dimensions of 7.5 cm and 7 cm.

Will be shipped via registered and insured mail.
