Good Spinosaur teeth are in demand by collectors of Dinosaur fossils, 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. There are many influences and occurrences which play a role on the overall outcome and extraction process's. When considering the value of dinosaur fossils and the diminishing resource they fossils are particulalrly in this region of this unique deposition, complete undamaged teeth are limited in occurrence, it requires many collecting weeks and therefore numerous hours in the field to discover such teeth.
