1.52" Rebbachisaurus Tooth - Sauropod Dinosaur

This is a beautifully preserved, 1.52" 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.

The tooth exhibits almost no feeding wear which is unusual as most of the teeth have significant tip wear. The enamel is in great shape but there are a few repaired cracks near the tip.

Comes with a floating frame display case.

Rebbachisaurus is 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.
