Large Fossilised Dinosaur tooth  spinosaurus 9.4cm
This is a very large fossilised dinosaur tooth from a spinosaurus. These are the biggest of the Theropod dinosaurs that ever lived. This tooth measures 9.4cm long and weighs 72gm. This fossil dates back to the Cretaceous age, therefore 100 million years old. It comes from the Kem Kem beds, near the Algerian border in Eastern Morocco. This is an area that is world famous for the quantity and variety of fossils.

The dinosaur spinosaurus is the largest of the carnivorous dinosaurs. These were semi-aquatic creatures, hunting in the margins of swamps and lagoons. An environment like this would have provided a large source of food. Being carnivorous their diet would have consisted of everything from fish and also other dinosaurs. These massive Dinosaurs had a distinctive ‘sail’ on their back. This gives them their name, spinosaurus meaning ‘spined reptile’. They weighed in the region of 15-22 tons, making them even bigger than the Tyrannosaurus.

This large tooth has had to have a minor amount of restoration work as can be seen in the photographs. It is still an excellent example, bearing in mind the incredible age. Most delicate specimens like these, have had to undergo a limited amount of restoration. This doesn’t detract from the fossilised dinosaur tooth in any way. This is a fine example, and will look impressive in anyones fossil collection. It comes complete with full description in a solid plastic display box.
