North African Tyrannosaurus Rex

Carcharodontosaurus Saharicus Dinosaur Vertebra 178mm

£1,492.00 GBP

A Carcharodontosaurus saharicus dinosaur vertebra measuring 178mm, the very attractive cream to dark mahogany brown tones are due to the minerals in the fossil layer which have effected the bone tissue. As the dinosaur skeleton is petrified and ultimately fossilised. The massive backbone, one of many held the strength of the dinosaur and in these illustrations, one can imagine the bulk of the theropod stomping through the semi-tropical forest and savannah of the Cretaceous. In the dorsal views, the medullary cavity is deep and wide protecting the spinal cord, the thickness of the bone around the cavity is evidence of further protection. Here the hollow cavities within the surface of the body walls and the waisted body an indication of theropod evolving bones that reduce weight yet retain strength.

Unearthed in the red beds of the Kem-Kem fossil formation, a desert Hamada (plateaux), that rises in the border territories between Morocco and Algeria. The land of the indigenous Berber nomad of the western desert of the Northern Sahara. Cleaned, conserved and restored in a professional fossil laboratory in the United Kingdom.
