Dinosaur tooth - Carcharodontosaurus saharicus - 33 mm

Description
Dinosaur tooth - Carcharodontosaurus saharicus - 33 mm
Late Cretaceous (93 - 100 mil y) - Kem Kem formation, Morocco

Carcharodontosaurus was one of the largest carnivores that once roamed our planet. It was very similar to Tyrannosaurus Rex. It could reach 13 meters in length and weighed an astonishing 15,000 kilos.
Fine Carcharodontosaurus teeth such as these are extremely rare. The serrated edge has been beautifully preserved and the tip is still as sharp as a knife. Part of the ‘Croute’ remains on the tooth. This is the layer in which it was found. Usually this layer has been completely removed, but with this specimen we thought it would be interesting to leave the layer in order to enhance the natural character of the tooth.
