A tooth of this size and quality is therefore much more rare, without restoration, a superb and honest specimen dinosaur fossil tooth.

Details

Carcharodontosaurus saharicus tooth 76mm in length, the good sized tooth, exceptionally well preserved, particularly considering its large size. The Carcharodontosaurus tooth also exhibiting excellent colour tones to the enamel, the fossilised dentin surface patina protected and enhanced over time by the surrounding mineral deposits of the fossil bed, overall an superb dinosaur tooth. Serrations can be clearly seen in our images, some nibbling of these, however what is lost is regained in the stout and robust preservation.


Larger predatory dinosaur teeth are prone to damage in the fossil bed, smaller teeth often fare well in comparison to the largest teeth, larger teeth commonly display some degree of wear, unless exceptional. Dinosaur teeth become loose and fall out in use and this should be taken into consideration, often morphology of the teeth is very interesting and helps us understand the life of the carnivore. Again a consequence of being deposited in the bed and through the fossilisation process does more often damage these larger teeth which are more susceptible in sedimentary bedrocks to crushing when fossil beds sustain movement over time.
