North African Tyrannosaurus Rex

Carcharodontosaurus Saharicus Dinosaur Tooth 45mm

£297.00 GBP

A unique prised authentic Carcharodontosaurus tooth 45mm, retaining detailed serrations to the mesial and distal curvatures. A classic sabre shaped cutting tooth, once able to tear through flesh, achieving mortal wounds, slowing down their prey like other small to large dinosaurs. Once felled Carcharodontosaur would have been skilled enough to dissect carcasses close to surgical precision.

Condition report; exhibits full enamel to the basal labial and lingual sides, retaining good serrations to the distal edge, the mesial serrations lost in life, also crown-tip dinosaur life wear. The good blonde colour enamel otherwise evident with a minor repair to the midsection lingual side. The lingual side or face is featured above with the business card image and one other closer image, in the images, you can see the midsection repair, which is a field lab conservation carried out in Morocco. The tip-crown dinosaur life wear runs down the mesial edge obliterating the serration, almost to the basal line, which does exhibit some indistinct serrations. Very intriguing tooth morphology and one may make of it what one can, regarding this life wear while in the carnivorous Carcharodontosaurus jaws.

The overall condition is very good; The colour of the enamel is an attractive blonde colour with traces of red grained sandy matrix internally at the base or root-end, typical of the 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 Carcharodontosaur could have been skilled enough to dissect carcasses with surgical precision.
