Otodus sp. is an extinct genus of predatory sharks that lived between to Paleocene and the Pliocene (66 to 2.5 million years ago). These teeth are some of the most commonly found teeth today, being found in Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America. The largest teeth found are just over 4 inches long, some showing the evolutionary development of serrations. Research suggests this shark grew rather large, reaching over an average of over 30 feet long.
