Hi! I have had these shark teeth from Ouled Abdoun Basin for awhile.

Not sure of species or exact age. But age is Cretaceous-Eocene

Regarding the teeth in the first photo: I agree the largest tooth looks like Otodus obliquus, but some of the others look more like Cretalamna appendiculata to me. In particular the two on the right and the lower one on the left I would probably call Cretalamana. I'm not sure about the one in the upper left. The tooth at the bottom of that photo looks like it has a nutrient groove in the root and is likely a sand tiger.
