This is a choice grade complete fossil tooth of a mosasaur from the Oulad Abdoun Basin of Morocco. The specific species is difficult to determine with certainty. It was dug from the mines comprising the Maastrichtian phosphates of the Ganntour Basin (Morocco). It displays a beautiful naturally lustrous enamel and sharp tip.
Over twenty years ago, we originated the phrase that "Mosasaurs were the T. rex of the Cretaceous seas". No truer statement could be made - they were ideal hunter-killers of their marine environment and had no equal!
