Carcharodontosaurus Saharicus Tooth 83mm in length which is a very large specimen dinosaur fossil tooth, with fine serrations still to the to the medial cutting edge and the distal curvature of this stout well preserved carnivore sabre cutting tooth. An honest as they come from the fossil bedding plain with in the field consolidation. The great aspect of this specimen tooth is its large size and wonderful colour tones, read about this below…

Details

Carcharodontosaurus Saharicus Tooth 83mm overall tip to dentin root. A very honest tooth as mentioned above. The good sized tooth is also a well preserved tooth particularly considering its robustness, having a very good three dimensional form or shape, very little flattening, as often can happen in the fossil bed. Exhibiting excellent mahogany colour enamel and a good fossilised dentin surface which is rippled with striations of the enamel across the lingual face, this near or behind the distal serrations and mesial serration, these ripples travel over the lingual face between serrations in the form of faint ripples in the dark toned enamel, these are part of the natural history of the theropod dinosaur. These can appear if the carnivore has illness or stress in its life cycle, much like the rings of a tree, these anomalies point to the health and ultimately habitat of the Cretaceous dinosaur. The patina is particularly fine and has a sheen, protected and enhanced over time by the surrounding mineral deposits of the fossil bed, a good example dinosaur tooth from a ferocious predator of the cretaceous period. The serrations can be viewed in the images.


Larger dinosaur teeth are prone to breaks or malformation due to their size, smaller teeth often fare better in comparison, large dinosaur teeth often display flattening, squashing or crushing, as a result of the fossilisation process. The large teeth are more susceptible in sustaining these as fossil beds move and change over the millions of years of deposition.


The area of consolidation is limited to just beneath the crown and can be clearly seen in the illustrations above. The stress lines mainly laterally seen in the lingual faces are stable and from the millions of years in the fossil bedding plane.
