Hi all, In the market of Middelburg, I saw this big fossil for sale. The stand owners say it is a Spinosaurus tooth from the Tenere desert, from the Cretaceous (when precisely they don't know). But I am not very sure of this ID, because I am not seeing anything that really looks like enamel. Also, it is HUGE! Some of the photos show a 10c (Euro) coin or my hand for size indication... It's approximately 18cm from tip to tip. I don't know much about spino teeth, but isn't that a tad too big? So, what exactly is it? Is it indeed a giant spino tooth? If yes, is this a normal size for it to reach? If it isn't, what is it then? And how much of it is real (in case part of it is fake)? Unfortunately, I didn't buy the fossil, so I can't give any extra pictures. I am curious to see what your answers are! Best regards, Max
