Morrocco theropod tooth

Recommended Posts

Would like to get some opinions on this kem kem tooth.  It's just under 1.5", would be a hair longer but the tip is missing (faked with matrix).  There are 4-5 serrations per mm on the mesial edge and about 2-3 serrations per mm on the distal edge. 

 

Opinions?

I'm probably wrong with this but at some angles, it looks like a Carcharodontosaurus tooth. Don't know what species though. Looks really good though!

Are you sure the tip is faked.  If you can take some closups can give you an opinion.  Preservation not the best to properly diagnose it. I believe its a Carcharodontosaurid anterior tooth.

Looks like average quality for erfoud, the tip isnt faked its just worn down the matrix is natural looking, and was probably left in place to avoid making it look worse. I would challenge the possibility of it being a large bodied abelisauridae tooth based upon the lack of wrinkling on the remaining enamel. And also based upon the first image the basal profile looks to be Salinon shaped something normally only seen in abelisaurids
