Glyphis (Speartooth shark)
A very rare Glyphis glyphis tooth, the Speartooth shark, from Sumatra, Indonesia. These teeth were deposited in the Telisa formation - a shallow marine environment during the middle Miocene (approx. 15 million years ago.) A very unique collector's tooth. D177 is an excellent upper jaw anterior tooth. Note - "spear-like" crown development. My best upper jaw tooth! Authenticity guaranteed.
D177 SIZE: 1/2"
Note - 16 new Sumatran Glyphis glyphis teeth added in January 2018. Link to Sumatran teeth.
