Indeterminate tooth for sale


Pterygotus

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I saw this tooth being sold that was labeled as indeterminate, dinosaur tooth which is Moroccan and is 1.6cm. Does anyone have any suggestions or know what species it could be? Thanks.

Abelisauridae indet. from the Kem Kem Compound Assemblage. Cenomanian in age (100,5-93,9 mya). I've never seen this coloration on a Kem Kem tooth.

 

No Abelisaurids are described yet from this location.

Does that mean it’s fake?

No, it's a real tooth and it's a beautifel one too in my opinion. It's just no Abelisaurids are officialy described in the Kem Kem beds. They are found there but you can't give them an scientific name until they are described. Even when there is an Abelisaurid described it will probably still just be Abelisauridae indet. since there is evidence of at least two different Abelisaurids. The most correct (current) determination is Abelisauridae indet.

That’s a really unique tooth I’ve never seen one with those colourations.

 

it reminds me of one of my baryonyx teeth with those weird colours

 

Amazing

As others have stated, the color is amazing and the crazing really adds to its beauty.

Sorry, it was described as raptor tooth but I doubt that makes any difference.

It's done quite often by dealers. Raptor sounds (and probably sells) better than unknown Abelisaurid ;)

Raptor its not and its also less of an unknown because there is no dinosaur family associated with it but does sound better to the uneducated dino collector.
