This listing is for a Carcharodontosaurus dinosaur tooth from the Kem Kem Beds of Morocco. Carcharodontosaurus means "Shark Tooth Lizard" due to the blade-like shape of the teeth. It was as large or larger than T Rex which is why it is sometimes called the "African T Rex" even though they are separated by about 30 million years. The tooth has some restoration on it but but overall is natural with great colored light enamel and good serrations.
The tooth is thick and robust, but has quite a bit of restoration to the middle part of the tooth which you can see from the photos. The tooth is from a huge adult Carcharodontosaurus measuring well over 40 feet in length! The tooth measures 4.58 in length on a straight line measured with accurate digital calipers. The tooth was found outside the city of Taouz Morocco along a cliff facing which separates Morocco from Algeria. This area is known as the Kem Kem Beds and dates back to the Cretaceous Period about 95 million years in age.
The amazing thing is that this area used to be a lush tropical environment full of life. All of the waterways and river systems created a perfect environment for teeth, claws and bones to become fossilized.
The fossil comes with a COA upon request. Please message me with any questions!
