Beautiful 2.45" Mosasaur (Prognathodon Curri?) Tooth

 
 
This is a nice, large tooth of the a Mosasaur (Prognathodon) from the Upper Cretaceous phosphate deposits in the Oulad Abdoun Basin of Morocco. These teeth are collected as a by product of the massive phosphate mining operations in the area.

While this tooth is certainly Prognathodon it has slightly different morphology than the typical Prognathodon teeth I receive, with a much more rounded tip. I believe this may be a specimen of the rarer Prognathodon curri.
