Baby Rebbachisaurus Tooth - Sauropod Dinosaur

This is a .49" long tooth of the large Moroccan diplodocid, Rebbachisaurus garasbae. Given the small size it must have come from a young juvenile of the species. It's pretty well preserved with wonderful reddish-brown enamel and displays the distinctive chisel shape of these sauropods. It comes from the Late Cretaceous Tegana Formation of Morocco, home to such meat eating giants as Spinosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus. It comes in an acrylic 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.
