Carcharodontosaurus saharicus tooth 61mm of a good-sized adult individual tooth well preserved. An authentic dinosaur carnivore sabre tooth. The Carcharodontosaurus saharicus tooth exhibiting the excellent serrations, clearly seen to the medial and distal curvatures, while the lingual face displays a greenish hue or tone to the fossilised dentin-enamel, this fossilised dentin surface patina protected and enhanced in the fossil process by surrounding minerals in the bedding plane, an excellent condition dinosaur tooth. The serrations can be viewed in our images.
The enamel is particularly of an unusual colouration and makes this a delightful tooth for collection, the stress lines in the enamel are quite stable, the tooth stout and solid in the hand. The fossil bed material has filled the inner core, making the tooth quite heavy and robust and therefore stable as this has solidified over the aeons. Some enamel loss has occurred, please refer to the colour illustrations.
