Few people realize that sharks have been in existence for more than 400 million years - nearly twice as old as the dinosaurs! These US Paleozoic sharks date about 300 million years ago. Authenticity guaranteed.

Few collectors are familiar with Paleozoic shark teeth since they are quite rare. About 450 million years ago, we have the earliest fossil evidence for sharks or their ancestors (cartilaginous fish) which possessed a few scales, but no teeth during the Late Ordovician Period. The first sharks with teeth were present in the early Devonian. During Paleozoic (Carboniferous Period) which began 359 million years ago, the “golden age” of sharks begins with a large number of shark species ruling the seas and inland waters. Very strange looking shark species evolved such as, the Edestus and Helicoprion with their spiral protruding saw-like jaws. Unfortunately, the mass extinction event at the end of the Paleozoic (Permian), wiped out 96% of all marine life. The quantity of Paleozoic shark teeth available is very small compared to the amount teeth from the Eocene through Pliocene which the collector community is more familiar with.
