Details:

A Spinosaurid vertebrae of this quality is a rare occurrence. An exceptionally well preserved vertebrae from perhaps the most ferocious theropod dinosaur to have roamed the lagoons and waterways of what is now the northern Sahara desert of North Africa. One other dinosaur could dispute Spinosaurus for top predator at up to 59 feet in length and 21 tonnes, Carcharodontosaurus, up to 44 feet in length and 15 tonnes also ranged the Cretaceous of N.Africa. Spinosaurus being a semi aquatic dinosaur, it is thought the the two dinosaurs were not in conflict over territory or prey too often, Spinosaurus having mainly a marine diet of sharks and large fish.

Details

An exceedingly large and scientific important dinosaur bone from the ‘Kem Kem' Red beds, the Taouz hamada formation in Morocco's western Sahara desert, North Africa. The exquisite Spinosaurus aegyptiacus vertebrae which has been preserved exceedingly well in the red beds, with the less common and very appealing cream or ivory colour throughout the vertebrae, with faint soft saturated pinks around some areas, please view all the images. Revealing the internal bone tissue and blood vessel structure, this on the ventral side where the spinal cord passed. The condition is exceptional and 100% natural with no restoration apart from stabilising the bone where now stable fracture lines are visible, only the removal of some of the surrounding (bed rock) matrix, from the fossil bed, has taken place along with the application of a stabilising substance to preserve and protect the exceptionally rare dinosaur vertebrae.


Often restorers repair or cover bone with fixatives and cosmetically coloured fillers which can have a negative appeal aesthetically, however usually these repairs in the field in Morocco can be undone and a good restoration and preservation technique can be carried out correctly in a professional lab or workshop. This spinosaurus vertebrae has been cleaned in a UK Lab to a high standard.
