This tooth belonged to a Spinosaurus marocannus dinosaur. Spinosaurus was a large carnivorous dinosaur from the Cretaceous period. It had a large dorsal sail-like structure that was made up of large spines ranging up to 2 meters (7ft) in length. These spines may have been connected by a tough skin.Some hypotheses suggest that Spinosaurus used this structure for thermo-regulation and/or mating rituals and display.
Spinosaurus was one of the largest of all known carnivorous dinosaurs; it may have reached 16-18 meters or (52-59 ft) in length, longer than the T. rex, and may have weighed 7-9 tonnes.
This Spinosaurus tooth is in great condition, featuring great preservation and detail. It is presented in a 5"x4" glass ricker case.
