DESCRIPTION:
Precious association of 2 teeth in matrix of Cretolamna maroccana (Mackerel Shark) and Squalicorax pristodontus from the cretaceous phosphate deposits of the Ouled Abdoun Basin (Morocco).
The Ouled Abdoun Basin (or Khouribga Basin), located in the central sector of Morocco, is an enormous sedimentarian basin represented mostly by a vast filling of phosphate sediments. Apart from having a relevant raw material to be extracted, it has a series of very important paleontological sites in which amazing assemblages from big and small marine vertebrates are present. The basin has a so great continuity in its stratigraphic record that both the Upper Cretaceous as well as the two first epochs of the Paleogene (Paleocene and Eocene) can be studied.

A physical certificate of authenticity is provided free of charge with every fossil we sell. This is our lifetime guarantee.
