Excellent 1.83" Rebbachisaurus Tooth - Rooted

This is a top quality, rooted, 1.83" long tooth of the large Moroccan diplodocid, Rebbachisaurus garasbae. It's pretty well preserved with wonderful light 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.

A very small percentage of teeth are found still rooted like this one, which indicated it was lost from the skull after the dinosaur died and is not a shed tooth.

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.
