Max10 posted a topic in Fossil IDHi everybody! Last month i saw this tooth on sale and it was love at first sight But from the beginning i understood that what it was and how it be presented are not on the same page... Luckily i know the seller pretty well and we trust each other...so i asked info before make the purchase...He told me that his provider (directly from Morocco) told him that the tooth was a Dyrosaurus phosphaticus but that he was not confident about the ID...the moroccan provider told to my friend/seller that was the first time that he saw a totth like that and its first idea of ID was D.phosphaticus. So provider was not sure, the seller just report the same ID given by the provider...and after hearing this story, i was even more convinced that i was on the good path...this is NOT a D.phosphaticus tooth...but for me, it was not a crocodilian tooth at all. Then i started to wondering what could it be...and i have reached two possibilities: 1) Spinosauridae: like Baryonyx/Suchosaurus 2) Pliosauridae: like Liopleuridon or Simolestes The specific features of the tooth (well conserved on labial side, damaged on lingual side, full carinae, intact root) are: - 2 marked, smooth carinae - 9 labial ridges - less evident lingual ridges - smooth enamel Other info: Origin: Khourigba - Morocco Age: Maastrichtian - Upper Cretaceous (doubtful) Lenght: 5.5cm / 2.16 inches What do you think about it? Someone can recognize it? Let me know and thanks to everybody!
