Condition report; exhibits full enamel from intact and complete crown-tip to the basal labial and lingual sides, retaining excellent carina serrations to the mesial and distal edges, which one can easily feel by touch. The excellent dark mahogany red colour enamel is a very attractive feature of this premier tooth. The overall condition is very good the red showing through the enamel a classic mark of the Moroccan fossil bed heavy iron-mineral content.; a classic sabre shaped cutting tooth, once able to rip through flesh achieving mortal wounds which could slow down other large dinosaurs. Once felled Deltadromeus could have been skilled enough to dissect carcasses with surgical precision.
