Deltadromeus agilis dinosaur tooth from the late Cretaceous from the origins of North Africa. A remarkable specimen with a dark rich brown palette, evident serrations and like all Deltadromeus teeth, fine, slim to a point and more elongated than the Dromaeosaur raptor dinosaur teeth. The 'delta-runner', was an enigmatic dinosaur discovered from the region of the Tegana formation in the Kem Kem beds. The scarcity of discoveries for this genus to date is extremely rare, for a single skeleton has yet to be discovered.
Condition report: Displaying serrations, exhibiting exceptionally good apical point to the crown of the tooth while the to ventrally one face you can evidently see the red matrix-bedrock from the fossil bed still attached to the tooth, an archetypical dark mahogany iron colour. In a stable condition, the enamel is superb. Often the rigours of the fossil bed determine the outcome of fractures within these wonderful fossil Deltadromeus agilis teeth, with plate movements within the sediments that have changed over the eons dating back to 100,000,000 years.
This Deltadromeus agilis dinosaur tooth is the exception, attaining an excellent morphology and exhibiting perfect miniature serrations compared to larger dinosaurs through to the tip, with the slightest of evident life wear only perceivable under a magnifying lens. This for the author is an added morphological bonus.
Deltadromeus teeth are far less common than that of other dinosaurs, thousands of dinosaur teeth have been discovered from this location over 30 years, among these teeth, very few are of actual quality, let alone excellent quality and again, even rarer when we're looking at the Deltadromeus agilis.
The archetypical sabre curve of the famous Deltadromeus agilis dinosaur looks menacing, no one can argue this heritage the Deltadromeus teeth occupy, with highly developed sharp cutting serrations hosts the signature of evolution for the Deltadromeus, with 99,000,000 years the lineage has gone into refining the evolutionary durable killing ungual weapon. With much appeal, you surely won't be anything but happy when you admire this wonderful Deltadromeus agilis dinosaur tooth, a truly exceptional discovery and specimen.
