    This catalog contains excellent teeth from C. auriculatus, the first Giant White shark. C. auriculatus teeth are noted for their triangular crown and very large side cusps which are heavily serrated. These teeth are from the late Eocene (Priabonian - 35 million years ago). Exceptional quality Auriculatus teeth are now coming out of northern Morocco in very limited quantities. A very rare find in Morocco!  *** Please note that these teeth come from the remote Western Sahara (Dakhla) area. TheseAuriculatus are a late stage of Auriculatus development that are referred to as Carcharocles sokolovi. The area has now produced dozens of them, but few pristine, top quality specimens.***
