1.15" Fossil Crow Shark (Squalicorax) Tooth- Morocco

This is a 1.15" Crow Shark (Squalicorax) tooth from the Eocene aged phosphate deposits near Khouribga, Morocco The serrations are very strong. The enamel has cracks but is in excellent condition. This is a pathological tooth in that the crown is not lined up with the root as normal. This causes the rippling of the labial (flat) side.

The Crow Shark was a medium sized Lamniform shark of the Paleocene that resembled a modern Great White shark in shape. It had comparatively small teeth with heavy serrations. At 3-5 meters (10-16 ft) it was much smaller than the mega sharks of the time.
