Fossilized Mosasaur Tooth
Teeth range in size from 0.75 to 1.5 inches long.
Mosasaurs are a family of enormous, extinct, marine reptiles that ruled the seas for 25 million years during the Cretaceous period. Some species including the Mosasaurus could reach lengths in excess of 50 feet and were the apex predator in nearly every part of the seas during their time. Their teeth are commonly preserved within the fossil record.
These are real, fossil Mosasaur teeth from the Upper Cretaceous Khuribga Plateau, Morocco. These are not perfect teeth, almost all will have wear received during the animals lifetime, may have repaired cracks, and some restoration, etc. The photos are representative of one (1) randomly chosen fossil you will receive. Each fossilized Mosasaur tooth is nicely packaged with an informational insert.
This is an actual fossil Mosasaur tooth.
Please be aware of the nature of fossils:
Being buried under the ground for millions of years under tons of pressure tends to be rough. No fossil comes out of the ground whole and perfect. Most fossils have undergone some restoration, while others are altered by man simply to enhance their presentation in different ways. The workers do a very professional job, unearthing and preserving these natural treasures, however, commonly natural cracks are visible on the surface. These are part of the natural beauty of the fossil and not considered defects.
