Hello, I was wondering if this tooth, is a composite of two teeth. What do you think?

There are a number of these teeth being offered for sale, or just sold  and a few have been repaired.  Its impossible to derermine if this is a composite or just two halves reattached.  The coloration of the roots is similar and the location of the cusps is accurate so its possible it's just a repair

I think the enamel has just come off the centre section, leaving the fossilized 'dentine' behind. 

I say real, but not great condition.

Would you say it's a nice tooth?

That's subjective and I live in Morocco, where If I go way down south, i can get better ones very cheaply. 

It really depends if you like it for the price it's offered at.

It's been sold and no longer available.   I do not like the tooth because of the poor repair and it's missing a couple of cusps why it's so subjective.  Buy what you like not what I like.

Well if you change your name to Splat's Dad, you are sure to get a heck of a lot more questions about it...that is unless your children are named Squish, Plop and Smear.

I don't have children. 

If I did they would all be called Adam, including the girls; it's a great name and 'twould be easy to remember.

Sorry if I kinda hijack this topic, but was wondering if the species name "Pappocetus Lugardi" these teeth were advertised by is 100% correct or is there any debate about it?

I actually bought one of the other ones listed that day, and wanted to check if I should put/keep that name on it's ID-card.
