What kind of tooth is this?

Recommended Posts

I found a tooth here online and it claims to be a Raptor tooth from Hell Creek. It has a classic Kem Kem color and kinda looks like a croc tooth?

Need better/bigger pictures from all angles. 

Right now, it does look croc-ish.

I would agree, it really looks like something you'd see from the kem kem rather than Hell creek. Better pictures could help us in figuring out what it is and from where it may originate.

I can see serrations so it's a theropod tooth.  Does not look like a raptor tooth but does have preservation "redish" of teeth from the Kem Kem.   I would pass just because of the uncertainty of locality.

look at tooth in the lower photo...it has serrations along it...I dont think crocodile teeth have serrations but I am no expert.

I couldn't tell it had serrations just based on the quality of the first images, I can see now that it's from a theropod. The only problem is that no dromaeosaurs are known from the Kem Kem of Morocco which based on the shape & color of the tooth, would appear to be the region of origin.

I’m voting that it’s from KemKem somewhere
