Otodus obliquus is an extinct species of the lamniform sharks in the large Otodontidae family. They lived during the Paleocene and the Eocene , between 45 and 55 million years ago.
As in all Elasmobranchii, the skeleton of Otodus consisted of cartilage, not bone so there was very little in the way of fossilisation other than the teeth and central vertebrae. Their teeth can measure up to 10 cm long, are triangular, with the cusp in lateral divergence This suggests that the Otodus diet probably consisted of marine mammals , fish , and other sharks.
