.75" Fossil Sauropod Dinosaur (Rebbachisaurus) Tooth - Morocco

This is a .75" long tooth of the large Moroccan diplodocid sauropod, Rebbachisaurus garasbae. It comes from the Late Cretaceous, Kem Kem Beds of Morocco, home to such meat eating giants as Spinosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus.

Comes with an acrylic display case.

It's debated that these beveled-edged teeth under 1" long are from Nigersaurus as opposed to Rebbachisaurus garasbae. The only issue with this is that they disappeared roughly 10 million years prior to the Kem Kem Beds formation, though erosion of their Early Cretaceous-aged deposits into Kem Kem deposits could explain this.

Rebbachisaurus is a genus of sauropod dinosaur of the superfamily Diplodocoidea that lived during the Early-Late Cretaceous period in Africa about 99 million years ago. It reached lengths of up to 20 meters (65 feet) long. This massive four-legged plant-eating animal had a small head, a long, graceful neck, and a whip-like 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 that the two continents had separated.
