Details

Carcharodontosaurus saharicus Tooth 47 mm, of a good stable fossilised condition. The tooth from a large dinosaur which terrorised the mid-Cretaceous of Gondwana land, now part of North Africa. Discovered in the premier North African dinosaur fossil collecting zone, from the classic Kem Kem escarpment where many highly important and major discoveries in the field of dinosaur palaeontology can be discovered. The Kem Kem or Tegana formation having preserved many good vertebrate archosaur remains.


Condition report; exhibits full enamel from the crown-tip to the basal labial and lingual sides, retaining good carina serrations and marginal undulations to the mesial and distal edges, a very small crown-tip wear facet. The lingual mesial carina exhibits a notch about 5mm from the crown-tip, here some enamel loss, the crown does not appear to have become detached and no reseating is evident, also some matrix attachment at the basal distal carina. The good caramel colour enamel otherwise evident attractive and complete. The overall condition is good; 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 blonde colour with traces of red grained sandy matrix internally at the base or root end, typical of the fossil bed heavy iron mineral content.
