Eocene (Priabonian) (38 - 33.9 mil y) - El Argoub, Western Sahara, Morocco

This is a wonderful rare tooth of Basilosaurus, one of the first genera of whales. Basilosaurus was at its time the largest animal on Earth. It could be 15 to 18 metres long and weighed about 60 tons.
I have visited the area where these teeth were found, and as such I have good contacts there now. These teeth are found in a hard sand layer and are usually found broken within the layer. This tooth was also broken in the layer several places and was stabilized directly after the find and treated with a preservative. The fractures were filled up a little and the root attachments restored. Beautiful tooth and an asset to any collection. The photos speak for themselves.

Insured and registered shipping.
