Elosuchus Cherifiensis Crocodile Lower Mandible 2.2ft

£4,892.00 GBP

Twenty four fossil teeth of the archosaur Elosuchus, emanate from the fossil gharial jaw section discovered in the Cretaceous fossil layers of De Ksar-es-Souk fossil beds, Kem Kem, Morocco. The exceedingly important crocodilian rostral jaw section having been conserved with reseated teeth, an exceptional three-dimensional study specimen now elevated on a custom-tailored display stand, creating a dramatic statement exhibit. The ferocious-looking teeth punctuating through the alveoli (tooth sockets) at regular intervals illustrates the size and power of the ancient crocodilian.

Elosuchus is an extinct genus of neosuchian crocodyliform extant during the Early Cretaceous, possibly of a similar lineage to the great Sarcosuchus imperator which weighed as much as 10 tons and measured upto 40 feet (12 meters), in length. Other fossil genera of crocodiles have been discovered in this region, Stomatosuchus (Mouth crocodile), named by Ernst Stromer, famously the describer of the dinosaur Spinosaurus aegypticus (the infamous sailed back fish-eating dinosaur of the Jurassic Park and Jurassic world films and co-existing in the same geographical regions), Laganosuchus (Pancake crocodile) and Kaprosuchus (Boar crocodile), both described by Paul Sereno & Hans Larsson, circa 2009.

As to the condition of the fossil mount, the jaw is extremely robust in all but the more fragile proximal articular's, indeed the whole jaw at around five kilograms is weighty and stable for a study fossil specimen, an excellent state of preservation and conserved to a high standard. The display plinth custom designed and fitted to seat the jaw securely in place while maximising the aesthetic appeal. The fossil is easily removed from the stand, to enable study and for transportation. This item will be shipped in a custom shipping case.

Presented on a substantial plinth the Elosuchus jaw is of a rare occurrence, a great fossil discovery. The ancient crocodilian jaw is remarkable, in that it is in an uncrushed state, along with the preservation condition and three-dimensional aspects, removed completely from the fossil bed and now presented on its display stand which is ideally suited for further study or exhibit.

Discovered in the Cretaceous period fossil bed in Morocco, N. Africa. the rostral section would have formed part of a jaw of a monster-sized archosaur in the order of 10 meters in length. The skull, up to very nearly 2 meters in length contained powerful crushing jaws, large peg teeth, capable of gripping and ripping large chunks of flesh from prey. Also, the Elosuchus predator originates from the same lagoons frequented by predatory dinosaurs such as the Spinosaurus.
