TOOTH OF A DINOSAUR
 
95 million years old
 

Kem Kem, South-eastern Morocco
 
A small, but good example of a tooth of the dinosaur Spinosaurus from rocks of Cretaceous age in Morocco. Presented in a display box with a glass lid.

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
