Spinosaurus

I found this jaw piece of Spinosaurus Marrocanus online. I was wondering if it was real.

 

Thanks in advance.

Looks very badly done to me.

I think you can actually see the sand and glue in the jaw and around the bottom of the teeth. 

Very unconvincing.

I agree, this looks fake and a bad fake at that. The jaw itself is far too narrow and the wrong shape. As others have said, the teeth have been added.

Also, Spinosaurus maroccanus is a nomen dubium. It's quite possible that Spinosaurus aegyptiacus is present in the Kem Kem beds (it depends on if you consider the neotype as valid). But Spinosaurus maroccanus should probably be considered a junior synonym of Sigilmassasaurus brevicollis. This animal is also only know from cervical and dorsal vertebrae material. So no skull elements can be ascribed to it with any certainty (with a possible exception of the quadratum bone).

Wonder what it is, though? It does look like a real bone of some sort, although the pictures are very low-res.

I would agree with everyone here. It's not Spinosaurus, and it really does look like a partial rib with teeth glued into it. Definitely weird
