4 Inch, Cretaceous Theropod (Spinosaurus) Dinosaur Tooth from Kem Kem Beds, Morocco (SKU V1457):- Spinosaurus aff. aegypticus

A very well preserved, large 4 inch tooth from a Cretaceous Spinosaur Theropod dinosaur from the famous Kem Kem beds of Morocco. Despite the size this is a more laterally compressed version than others which makes me believe this is from Spinosaurus it’s self and therefore highly likely to be Spinosaurus aegypticus as this is the most commonly seen species from this location.  There is a repair to the root of the tooth which can be seen in the accompanying photos, no other repairs to the crown. There is tooth usage wear to the very tip surface (its been used!) which can be seen in the accompanying photos which is standard for such teeth. Furthermore no restoration is visible when studied under a black (UV) light. The size measurement used does not include the remaining rock matrix on the base of the tooth. The measurement has been taken from the tooth tip to the last visible root area on the base. Comes in a display box for display and with a species/locality label. Found:- Tegana Formation, Aptian, Cretaceous, Kem Kem Basin, Morocco, North Africa. Age:- 100 Million Years Old. Size of Tooth = 10.2 cm (4 inches) long. Display Box Size = 13.3 cm (5.25 inches) wide by 15.8 cm (6.25 inches) high.
