Artists reconstruction of a Halisaurus. By Nobu Tamura
is a nice, rooted tooth of the Mosasaur, Halisaurus arambourgi. It comes from the phosphate deposits near Khouribga, Morocco. A very small percentage of teeth still retain their roots, as they are much more fragile than the crown of the tooth. There is one repaired crack in the root.

Halisaurus ("Ocean Lizard") was in the Mosasaur family and were small compared to other Mosasaurs reaching lengths of 3-4 meters. There are one of the more uncommon types of Mosasaurs present in the phosphate beds, with less that 5% of the teeth representing Halisaurus.
