Description

Spinosaurus made famous by the Jurassic Park movies was originally discovered in Egypt in the early 1900’s by a German paleontologist. It has been known by very few bones that were unfortunately destroyed during WWII. However many photographs and casts survived and in the 1990’s paleontologists discovered more Spinosaurus remains. With the new discoveries they found parts of the jaws and many teeth.

It has been determined that Spinosaurus was actually a fish eater due to the narrow and lightweight skull and narrow snout filled with straight conical teeth that lacked serrations. These are the teeth of a fish eater. Also due to the lightweight jaws, it would not have been possible to crush and chew other prey.  One of the Spinosaurus’ favorite meals was the Onchopristis, or “Giant Saw,” a sawfish that could grow to 8 meters and weigh close to 1.5 tons.

This tooth is 2 1/4 inches long and the base measures 3/4 inch.  The tooth in photo is the tooth you will receive.  Nice definition and enamel on this great tooth.
