BAGGED AND LABELLED
This is a new product for Jurassic Jewellery and one I am sure will prove VERY popular.
I always have a tooth like this on my table at shows - and it always attracts a lot of interest.
This would make a fantastic Christmas gift for any fossil fanatic!
Otodus teeth are always popular and one of my best sellers!
The shape of the tooth gives an idea of the immense power of this early mackerel shark!
Otodus was a large mackerel shark that swam the seas between the Eocene-Paleocene Eras - ( roughly 30-50 Million years ago) It attained lengths greater than 10 metres and is thought by many to be related to the Megalodon, the largest shark to ever swim the ocean. Great gift! , A one-of-a-kind collector's piece !
The features of the Otodus species teeth are
1) - A massive root
2) - Large separate cusplets
3) - A heavy center crown.
