is a distinctive needle like tooth of a Pterosaur (Anhanguera sp.) from the Cretaceous Tegana Formation of Morocco. It somewhat curved and has great reddish brown enamel preservation. This is a very fine, specimen of a tooth from an extinct Pterosaur.

Anhanguera was not a "true" dinosaur, but rather a pterosaur (flying reptile). It was one of the larger pterosaurs of the Cretaceous period with a maximum wing span of about 15 feet. It primarily ate fish, which I used it's sharp needle like teeth to hold onto.
