The world’s most sought-after fossil tooth is the famous
Megalodon tooth. This shark was around 60 feet in size and considered a monster

damage vital organs and decimate its prey.
Moroccan shark teeth are found in huge quantities as sharks
would continually loose teeth and some estimates are up to 100,000 teeth over
one sharks lifetime, as sharks teeth are made from a solid substance called dentin,
calcified tissue that does not easily decompose, so they are kept in good
condition over millions years and even the serrated edges are in good condition
on many specimens.
