A superb Museum standard Spinosaurus aegyptiacus tooth, in high demand globally and many examples on the fossil market today are more often than not, poor quality and incomplete. Understandably, many dinosaur teeth are damaged or worn due to life wear, the fossilisation or extraction process. Notably, the overall outcome depends on the fossil site and the fragility of the fossil beds themselves, main cause to damaged specimens, such as exposure to the elements, flooding which is becoming more common in certain areas of Morocco and in the desert regions the arduous nature of collecting in the far-flung corners of the Western Sahara ténéré. There are many influences and occurrences which play a role in the overall outcome of the extraction processes and condition of fossils. When considering the value of dinosaur fossils and the diminishing resource they are, particularly in this harsh collecting region and of the unique fossil dinosaur depositions, complete or undamaged teeth are limited in occurrence, it requires many collecting hours, weeks and months to discover fine quality specimens. This increases the value of every good find.
