Details

Carcharodontosaurus saharicus Tooth 45 mm, of stout proportions and in a good stable fossilised condition. The tooth from a dinosaur which terrorised the mid-Cretaceous of Gondwana land, now North Africa. Discovered in the premier North African dinosaur fossil collecting zone, from the stable of Kem Kem where many highly important and major discoveries in the field of dinosaur palaeontology have been uncovered. The Kem Kem or Tegana formation having preserved many good vertebrate archosaur remains.


This unique and prised collection example of an authentic Carcharodontosaurus killing tooth is no exception to that good stable of Kem Kem discoveries. The condition exhibits enamel wear to the lingual face, retaining serrations to the mesial and distal curvatures, some crown-tip dinosaur life wear to the enamel. A classic sabre shaped cutting tooth, once able to rip through flesh achieving mortal wounds which could slow down other large dinosaurs. Once felled Carcharodontosaur could have been skilled enough to dissect carcasses with surgical precision.


The colour of the enamel is an attractive darker mahogany colour with traces of red staining typical of the fossil bed heavy iron mineral content.
