DINOSAUR TOOTH - 95 million years old - Morocco

TOOTH OF A DINOSAUR
 
95 million years old
 
Kem Kem, South-eastern Morocco
 
Tooth of the large dinosaur Spinosaurus from rocks dating from the Cretaceous period in Morocco.  Spinosaurus had an unusual skull with an extremely long and narrow snout, high nostrils and a large number of small teeth.  These adaptations would have been well-suited to catching fish, although such a large dinosaur must have fed on land animals as well.  

However, research published in the National Geographic Magazine suggests that there were enough large fish available at that time to feed such a huge carnivore and Spinosaurus should now be regarded as an aquatic dinosaur. For more information see 
http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2014/10/spinosaurus/mueller-text 

The fossil is provided in a plastic box with label as shown. Most of the teeth are fragile and have been repaired but this is normal.

Please note:  The photographs are typical examples of what we have.  You will receive the best example from our current stock.
