I purchased an incredible collection of Auricuatus teeth and I can offer the largest selection of highquality Rics ever. The Auriculatus is 10 times more rare than the Angustidens which is 100 times more rare than the Megalodon. Get them while they last!!! Unfortunately, there is no access to the mines for collecting today.
Note - The Harleyville area Auriculatus are a late stage of Auriculatus development that are also referred to as Otodus (Carcharocles) sokolovi.
Note - all teeth sizes are slant height unless otherwise noted.
