Description
Large serrated dinosaur - Tooth - Carcharodontosaurus saharicus - 87×33×14 mm
CRETACEOUS-Upper Cretaceous, Cenomillion yearsnian (93.9–100.5 million years) - Morocco

Offered is a large tooth of one of the largest carnivorous dinosaurs that ever lived. Carcharodontosaurus is closely related to Tyrannosaurus rex. It could grow up to 13 metres long with a weight of 15 tons. This incisor has a hefty size of 8.7 cm. The serration on the side is for a large part preserved as you can see in the pictures. Also, the tooth has a beautiful light brown patina. The tooth was broken in 2 places in the layer and has been glued. The resulting cracks have been filled up. The missing enamel has been filled up somewhat too. Nice Carcharodontosaurus teeth of this size are rare.

This tooth comes from the Kem Kem formation in the southeast of Morocco. The age is Late Cretaceous, about 93 to 100 million years old. Taken from my last trip to the Kem Kem in Morocco in April 2018. Good luck bidding.

This fossil is offered without a reserve price!!
