Framed Spinosaurus aegyptiacus tooth 420mm, with artwork by Ben Pickup. Presented in a glazed frame with glass viewing panel to the fossil inclusion. Ben's art is wonderfully creative with copious fine detail. The Spinosaurus of the early Cretaceous of the Cenomanian epoch, dating back to approximately 99 million years ago. the fossil specimen along with other remains of the Spinosaurus were located in the Tegana formation, Northern Sahara, Morocco, North Africa.
An excellent presentation of a classic dinosaur tooth from what must now be one of the most renowned collecting sites of the world for theropod carnivore remains. The Spinosaur made famous when featured in Steven Spielberg's Jurassic park series of films about the dinosaurian theme parks. Here our resident artist Ben brings to life the meat eating theropod which terrified audiences on the films release, once again be thrilled with the aid of an authentic gripping tooth which in all probability crushed many prey before the carnivores demise millions of years ago.
