1.3" Crushing Mosasaur (Igdamanosaurus) Tooth - Morocco
This is a 1.3" wide tooth of a Mosasaur (Igdamanosaurus aegyptiacus) from the phosphate deposits in the Oulad Abdoun Basin of Morocco.
Igdamanosaurus (formerly called Globidens) had semi-spherical, acorn shaped teeth rather than the pointed teeth of most Mosasaurs. These rounded teeth were best suited for crushing tough armored prey like small turtles, ammonites, nautili, and bivalves.
