Whale Teeth

Showing all 17 results

Fossil whale teeth, including those of Basilosaurus, provide valuable insights into the evolution and biology of ancient whales. Whale teeth are typically large and robust, designed for grasping and tearing prey rather than chewing. They are often found as fossils in marine sediments, particularly in areas that were once shallow seas or coastal regions.

Basilosaurus is an extinct genus of early whale that lived during the Eocene epoch, around 40-34 million years ago. Despite its name, Basilosaurus was not a true lizard, but rather a large, predatory whale with a serpentine body. Basilosaurus had long, conical teeth that were well-suited for catching and consuming fish and other marine prey.
