Details

A very well preserved Spinosaurus aegyptiacus tooth 128mm, exhibiting excellent enamel with a very good patina. The robust and stable tooth exhibiting a sabre curve typical of the dinosaur and is of a good size. Dinosaur teeth from this location typically demonstrate red's and maroon tones.


Teeth of this quality are continually in demand by collectors as they are rarely discovered in this condition of preservation, however many examples on the fossil market today are of poor quality, often badly broken and incomplete. Understandably, many Dinosaur teeth are damaged or worn due to either life wear or due to the fossilisation and extraction process at the sites in Morocco. Notably the overall outcome of the condition of fossils generally depends on the fossil site and fossil beds themselves, exposure to the elements, flooding which is becoming more common in many regions. Many influences and occurrences which play a major role on the overall outcome and extraction process's when considering the value of Dinosaur fossils. Not least the diminishing resource, in the world, of these unique depositions.


Complete and undamaged teeth are limited in occurrence, requiring much time and energy collecting, numerous hours in the field to acquire fine example as the tooth illustrated here. Premier quality Spinosaurus teeth our becoming rare, particularly from classic excavation sites, causing excavators to search deeper beneath the ground where the teeth are normally or often suffering more damages, by nature of the overload and the pressures of the earth. These sites will eventually become over worked and be extinguished, coupled with political unrest and military intervention over the continental intercalaire, Hamada in these famed fossil collecting regions which will generally make more difficult the collecting of fossils.
