Description
This shark tooth is a very rare piece. The shark teeth are usually very common in the fossil record. However, in this Geological Formation, there is only one shark described and published, the Hybodus. Yet, this specimen does not belong to the Hybodus genus. It is probably a species which has not yet been described in the Cretaceous in the Tegana Formation. It is found complete, without restorations or reparations.

A great part of it is still under a thin layer of the original sandy and gravelly sediment. It still preserves the complete root as well as the two lateral denticles. It comes from the most basal levels of the Formation, that is why its age is the lower Albian. Its presence here suggests that in the initial times of the middle Cretaceous, the marine influence was higher, and the delta and fluvial systems still had a strong connection with the open water. This is an interesting piece for studying and determining if it is the first time this species has been found in the Kem Kem basin.
