Collected long ago when the Kem Kem deposits (now nearly devoid of good dinosaur material) once produced spectacular dinosaur fossils, this is a supreme quality dinosaur tooth from the large, swift meat-eater Deltadromeus agilis. High grade, properly identified specimens are very hard to locate and it has been over 6 years of overseas trips to the source in the Sahara since we have seen teeth of this quality. With much of the dinosaur fossil remains in this area now completely dug out and large parts of the formation leveled, it is likely that teeth like this will now be found mainly in older collections as this one was in.
Serrations are intact and crisp. The enamel is perfect with natural luster, not from being dipped in a clear sealer or coated with anything to artificially make it glossy. A tooth like this represents one of the highest possible qualities one can hope to find in these SCARCE dinosaur teeth.
