SOLD Beautiful Small Theropod Tooth Morocco Kem Kem Beds!
This is a really great small theropod tooth from the famous Kem Kem Beds of Morocco dating back to the Cretaceous about 95 million years in age. There are not many small theropods species known from this formation yet so assigning a species to this fossil would be impossible. The best part of this tooth is how crisp the serrations are and how great colored the enamel is!
If the listing is purchased a COA can be provided upon request and a black and white copy of the informational flyer about the Cretaceous of Morocco and the Kem Kem Beds. Also, after purchase I will send you a Word document that has the informational pamphlet in high resolution color so you can print it for free as well and use it to display your new fossils!
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.
Fossils from this lush tropical environment include top predators such as Carcharodontosaurus, Spinosaurus, Deltadromeus, Sarchosuchus (Super Croc) as well as smaller Dromaeosaur or Raptor-like dinosaurs. Also present are various sauropods including Rebbachisaurus (a Titanosaur) as well as other herbivorous dinosaurs. In the water were large armor plated fish, sawfish and even the semi-aquatic Spinosaurus hunting them. In the skies were a variety of pterosaur flying reptiles which sometimes are present in the fossil record of this formation.
