Here is a wonderful tooth from a Plesiosaur. This tooth is from the Cretaceous deposits of Morocco. Plesiosaurs were large, vicious marine reptiles. They had extremely long necks and fairly lengthy tails and swam by means of legs and feet that had developed into oarlike paddles. This tooth is wonderfully 3-dimensional and beautifully preserved. The corrugated, multi-colored enamel is excellent, and the tip exhibits almost no natural wear. This dagger-shaped tooth still has a portion of the root intact. The fossil has superb color and contrasts well with the sand-colored matrix. The tooth is nicely showcased on the large block of sandstone - NATURAL, NOT COMPOSITED on the plate. This is a great example of a Plesiosaur tooth from the Cretaceous seas.

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
