Cretaceous, Fossil Crow Shark (Squalicorax) Teeth

These are authentic fossil teeth of the extinct crow shark, Squalicorax pristodontus. They come from the Upper Cretaceous (70 million year old) phosphate deposits near Khourigba, Morocco. The photos are representative of the fossil teeth that you will receive. They vary in size from about .9" to about 1.4" with most being in the middle of that size range.

Squalicorax would have had a body type very similar to todays grey sharks but the teeth most closely resembled that of tiger sharks. It was likely a coastal predator, but there is evidence it was also a scavenger as evidenced by a Squalicorax tooth having been found embedded on the bone of a Hadrosaur. Hadrosaurs were terrestrial dinosaurs, so it likely had died on land and been swept out to see.

It comes from the phosphate deposits near Khourigba, Morocco. These deposits are mined for phosphate, one of Moroccos biggest exports. The fossils are collected as a byproduct of the mining operations, saving them from certain destruction by the rock crusher.
