CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT CARCHARODONTOSAURUS
Fossil dinosaur bones of Carcharodontosaurus are super scarce and this is only one of a few we have had in the last 15+ years! It is a large vertebra centrum from a young adult dinosaur as evidenced by the recently healed joint between the centrum and dorsal process (see photo). The size of this vertebra is a breath-taking display of just how large these beasts were! A portion of the neural canal is present and the centrum is complete and diagnostic for this genus. The bone is dense and heavy with excellent mineralization. Restoration was done by the native digger, to the edges of the posterior centrum and and a small bottom portion of the anterior centrum face but the work compares favorably with the proper anatomy of this species' vertebra. RARE and impressive. Only one we have to offer! Beautiful natural red colors!
