Deltadromeus agilis dinosaur tooth from the Late Cretaceous and a remarkable specimen with a typical elongated shape to other dinosaurs such as the Dromaeosaur raptor. The Deltadromeus; '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; 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.
