A well preserved Spinosaurus aegyptiacus tooth 128mm, exhibiting solid enamel with a high patina. This piece has a nice curve and is a good size. Spinoisaur teeth do demonstrates beautiful red's and maroon tones throughout the tooth and into the roots when you're lucky enough to find one still attached. All rounded up, these are fabulous teeth and show an interesting morphology making them scientifically important. Spinosaurus Maroccanus dinosaur from the Tegana formation, the province de Kasr-es-Souk in Kem Kem. This is the Northern Sahara, Morocco. Dating back to the Mesozoic era, early Cretaceous, approximately 99 million years.


Teeth such as these are in continual demand by collectors of Dinosaur fossils, however many examples on the fossil market today are of poor quality, and usually incomplete. Understandably, many Dinosaur teeth are damaged or worn due to life wear and also the fossilisation and extraction process. 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 certain areas of Morocco causing an effect and dams are built which further affect the excavation process.


There are many influences and occurrences which play a major role on the overall outcome and extraction process's when considering the value of these Dinosaur fossils and the diminishing resource, in this region of the world, of this unique deposition So therefore, complete and undamaged teeth are limited in occurrence, it requires a lot of collecting and therefore numerous hours in the field to acquire such a fine example. The prestigious Spinosaurus teeth our becoming more rare from the classic excavation sites with very few teeth of this quality as the beds become dry of fossils, causing excavators to search deeper beneath the ground where the teeth our more deformed by nature as the pressures of the earths plates compress the lands gradually over millions of years. These sites will too become extinguished, coupled with political and military unrest in these famous regions more difficult for collecting.
