Name: Mosasaur tooth with Restored (Composite) Root
Species: Marine Reptile
Age: Cretaceous Period
Location Found: Morocco
Mosasaurs were large marine reptiles that were well-adapted to living in the warm, shallow, epicontinental seas prevalent during the late Cretaceous Period, between 145.5 and 65.5 million years ago. They breathed air & were powerful swimmers making them so well adapted to this environment that they gave birth to live young, rather than return to the shore to lay eggs, as sea turtles do. Mosasaurs had many qualities of a modern day snake, they had two rows of teeth in their upper jaw, the main set, and a smaller set toward the rear & center of their mouths.
*The teeth on sale here mainly belong to the Liodon anceps mosasaur, but some Platecarpus ptychodon and Mosasaurus beaugei can also be found. It is highly likely that the matrix around these teeth will also include fish fossil remains such as bone, teeth and vertebrae.
ACTUAL AS SEEN: The image shows the EXACT specimen you will receive. The specimen has been carefully hand selected and photographed. Measurements are as accurate as possible, though be aware measuring precise dimensions can be difficult from irregular shaped items. Whilst we portray colours as close to life-like as we can, colours will vary if taken in sunlight, indoors, from monitor to monitor and device to device. Once this specimen is sold, we will update this listing with new similar selected item, with a new photo and dimensions.
