Location Aoufous formation, Kem Kem beds, Morocco.
This is a good sized spinosauridae tooth, currently it is not possible to determine between two species present in the kem kem beds (Spinosaurus aegyptiacus and Sigilmassasaurus brevicollis) based upon teeth alone. There is one repair to the tooth and as can be seen from the photographs has an excellent preservation of the enamel, there is also a nice feeding wear shown at the tip indication of feeding on hard material and root wear due to a new erupting tooth. This fossil along with all of our fossils, has been consolidated with Paraloid B-72, which is a standard between personal collectors and museums.
