North African Tyrannosaurus Rex

Carcharodontosaurus Saharicus Dinosaur Tooth 83mm

£882.00 GBP

Carcharodontosaurus saharicus tooth 83mm in length, of stout proportions in a very good stable fossilised condition. From the classic and lately one of the premier dinosaur fossil collecting locations with highly important and major discoveries in the field of dinosaur palaeontology. The Tegana formation has preserved many vertebrate archosaurs.

This unique and prised collection example of an authentic Carcharodontosaurus killing tooth is no exception. The condition shows enamel loss to the labial face, however still retaining some serrations to the mesial and distal curvatures. The lingual face of the tooth has faired much better, exhibiting crenelations of enamel and serrations up both medial and distal curvatures. A classic sabre cutting tooth, once able to rip through flesh achieving mortal wounds which could slow down another large dinosaur. Once felled Carcharodontosaur could have been skilled enough to dissect carcasses with surgical precision.

With field consolidation and stress veining, the tooth appears to have been stress cracked just below the crown tip and could have been reseated about one-fifth of the way down from the apex tip. This is difficult to be sure about at the time of writing while reviewing. However this does not distract from the great size, stoutness and now solid consolidated state of a superb fossil tooth find. The colour of the enamel is of a blonde caramel colour. Today this is an unusual find, darker colour teeth come to market more frequently, this is from an earlier period in recent collecting history.
