This listing is for a all natural 3 7/8" Spinosaurus tooth from the Kem Kem Beds of Morocco. The tooth measures a touch under 4" and has a little wear to the enamel due to exposure to the sun when it was found. That enamel wear tells a story of how the fossil hunter first discovered this tooth. It must have been partially exposed at the moment of discovery!

The Kem Kem Beds (also referred to by various names including the Continental Red Beds and Continental intercalaire) is a geological formation along the border between Morocco and Algeria in southeastern Morocco, whose strata date back to the Late Cretaceous. Dinosaur remains are among the fossils that have been recovered from the formation. Recent fossil evidence in the form of isolated large abelisaurid bones and comparisons with other similarly aged deposits elsewhere in Africa indicates that the fauna of the Kem Kem Beds (specifically in regard to the numerous predatory theropod dinosaurs) may have been mixed together due to the harsh and changing geology of the region when in reality they would likely have preferred separate habitats and likely would be separated by millions of years.
