Jaimin013 posted a topic in Fossil IDHi everyone, The tooth below is being advertised as a Pathological Juvenile CARCHARODONTOSAURUS Tooth on the popular auction site. Is this legit? I have my doubts... Please let me know your thoughts on this. I am curious to see what people think. Seller says Pathological teeth are not common and tend to be caused by infections during the animals lifetime and that the tooth itself has unusual depressions, narrow tip, twists and shape to it. Its 23mm and the seller says it is clear this Carcharodontosaurus was easily under 1 year old...
Okay, I found this tooth a few weeks ago and gave it to my daughter because I thought it was just the root. She brought it down the other day and when I looked at it closely- I was surprised that there are serrations on both of the enamel fragments including on both interior sections (where it splits). Thoughts?
