What were Otodus sharks?

Otodus is not a single species, but rather a genus that includes many different prehistoric mackerel sharks. As one of the top predators of their time, Otodus dined mostly on large boney fish, marine mammals, and even other sharks. Sharks in the genus were typically very large as well—the infamous Otodus megalodon is estimated to have reached up to 52 feet long!

Teeth belonging to sharks of the Otodus genus can be found worldwide, but the phosphate mines of Khouribga, Morocco are especially well known for producing large amounts. The teeth that we offer mostly come from the species Otodus obliquus.

All teeth will be mostly complete, though all have minor chips and restorations.

Each purchase includes a glass top display box and an informational card about the fossil.
