5" Mosasaur (Eremiasaurus) Jaw Section In Matrix

This is a nice jaw section with one tooth from one of the most fearsome predators to ever inhabit our oceans, the Mosasaur. It comes from the Upper Cretaceous, phosphate deposits in the Oulad Abdoun Basin of Morocco. There are many different types of Mosasaurs in these deposits but this one should be Eremiasaurus heterodontus (LeBlanc, A.R.H., Caldwell, M.W. and Bardet, N. 2012).

The matrix is 5" long by 4.5" tall and the crown of the Mosasaur tooth is 1.2" long. There are also some misc bone fragments and two vertebrae naturally associated in the rock. One vertebrae is from a shark and I'm not sure about the other. There is no restoration or compositing on the piece though there are a few repairs to the crown of the Mosasaur tooth.

It comes with an acrylic display stand.
