Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a squalicorax tooth, it is posterior. 

Is it rare, and if it is how much would it cost

I don't think they are extremely rare. 
We don't give appraisals of price here on the Forum. 
It is against the rules and beyond what can be done from photographs.

Very nice tooth but it looks like a posterior Otodus megalodon tooth NOT a squalicorax tooth. Take Care George

Okay thanks. but i have 2 questions

 

1. do juvenile megalodons have cusps\

 

2. Does Dicalymene Ouzergui from Morroco have eyes, because the samples I have don't appear to have any.

Flexicalymene ouzregui did have eyes, but the preservation generally will not show them. Like most calymenids, the eyes would be somewhat on the small side.

Aren't otodus teeth supposed to have cusps?

Otodus is a genus with many species, the very common one Otodus Obliquus that you are thinking of mostly from Morocco does have cusps. Megalodon is also part of the Otodus genus and can have very tiny cusps occasionaly. Here's an image showing Otodus evolution. You do have a pretty cool tooth in my opinion
