This type of shark teeth is one of the most beautiful from the assemblage in the phosphate rocks in the Paleocene of the Oulad Abdoun Basin (Morocco). This tooth has an outstanding preservation. The enamel in each of the cusps has a beautiful beige color. It has some glued and tiny filled fractures in the root area.

It is a tooth of the lower jaw of a cow shark. Specifically it is the species Notidanodon loozi (Vincent, 1876). This species belongs to the Hexanchidae family.

It is a quite rare species within the huge shark assemblage present in the phosphates of the lower Paleogene of this region of Morocco. Its structure is very delicate and fragile, and it is worse preserved than the teeth of other more common species.

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.
