Otodus is an extinct mackerel (Lamniformes) shark that lived during the Eocene, approximately 54 million years ago. This is the same family of sharks that includes the Great White and there were likely a distant ancestor to the Megalodon. These teeth are collected during phosphate mining operations near Khouribga, Morocco. While teeth of Otodus are common fossils at these mines, large, good quality specimens are hard to find as they are often destroyed by the mining equipment.
