The listing, Prehistoric shark’s tooth fossil has ended.

I found this shark’s tooth on Shark Tooth Island (Featured on Shark Week) on the Potomac River in Westmoreland County Virginia. Check out my other shark teeth that I have listed.

Found this information online:

Fossils found along the Potomac River are from the Aquia formation, which is from the late Paleocene (Selandian).

This time period marks the final ending of the supercontinent Pangaea, as the last vestige split apart into Antarctica and Australia. At the end of the Paleocene, the climate was also warming from the cool Paleocene climate into the tropical climate of the Eocene. Another special event in the Paleocene is the development of grass. Without the evolution of grass, mankind would have long perished from lack of cutting it.

As in the Eocene and Miocene, this area was just offshore in the young and much narrower Atlantic Ocean. The fossiliferous deposits contain mainly shells, fish, and fossil shark teeth (including the fiercest shark of the Paleocene, Otodus obliquus), ray plates, and crocodile and turtle material. These deposists are too old to find marine mammals, as mammals did not return to the sea for another 4 - 6 million years.
