Description

    Dinosaur Tooth
    Carcharodontosaurus saharicus
    Cretaceous
    Tegana Formation and the Kem-Kem Beds
    Kem-Kem Basin, near Taouz, Morocco

    This small tooth from a Carcharodontosaurus Dinosaur has a primarily reddish coloration over most of its mottled and rustic surface. The fine example of ancient theropod dentition exhibits some wear and tear but is in generally good condition overall. Some patches of the enamel coating are missing on one side, but the solid and slightly curved tooth has lots of character. The piece is just over 2.5 inches (6.35 cm) in length with worn serrations on both edges. This major predatory carnivore would have rivaled a T-rex in terms of size and among the large theropods. Teeth from any Dinosaur are rare and intriguing.
    Overall Measurements: 2.52 x 1.09 x 0.67 inches (6.40 x 2.76 x 1.71 cm)
    Offered at no reserve.

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
