Shark

450-0 million years old


Sharks were probably created during the Silurian period around 433 million years ago. But the very first real sharks only emerged in Devonian around 360 million years ago. Some of the first sharks were huge like the megalodon and had teeth of 15 centimeters. Other sharks, on the other hand, were a lot smaller and therefore had a lot smaller teeth. Fossil shark teeth can be found almost anywhere in the world. Even in the Netherlands on the beach! In our webshop we sell both fossil bones and fossil teeth of sharks.
