1.1" Fossil Sauropod Dinosaur (Rebbachisaurus) Tooth - Morocco
This is a 1.1" long tooth of the large Moroccan diplodocid, Rebbachisaurus garasbae. It comes from the Late Cretaceous, Kem Kem of Morocco, home to such meat eating giants as Spinosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus.
Rebbachisaurusis a genus of sauropod dinosaur of the superfamily Diplodocoidea, up to 20 meters (65 ft) long, that lived during the Early-Late Cretaceous period in Africa about 99 million years ago. This massive four-legged plant-eating animal had a small head, a long, graceful neck and a whiplike tail. Rebbachisaurus is distinguished from other sauropods by its unusually tall, ridged back. The discovery of Rayososaurus, a South American sauropod nearly identical to Rebbachisaurus, supports the theory that there was still a land connection between Africa and South America during the Early Cretaceous, long after it was commonly thought the two continents had separated.
