FOSSIL SHARK'S TOOTH

Still embedded in the rock matrix in which it was found
 
55 million years old
 
Khouribga, Morocco
  
A shark has jaws packed with a frightening array of teeth.  The teeth are only loosely attached to the jaw and often fall out to be preserved in the mud on the sea floor. 
  
​​​​​​​This beautifully preserved tooth is from the phosphate mines of Morocco. It is of the species Otodus obliquusOtodus is an extinct genus of mackerel shark which lived from the Paleocene to the Miocene epoch.

It displays well without the need for a stand. It is one of the best examples of these teeth on matrix that we have seen.
