Carcharodontosaurus Dinosaur Tooth. Large 3.5 inch long by 1.50 inch wide complete dinosaur tooth of Carcharodontosaurus saharicus, the T-Rex of Africa. Even though Carcharodontosaurus was even larger that a T-Rex, most of the teeth found are only 1.5 to 2.5 inches long. This complete brown shed tooth has excellent enamel with only very minor enamel chipping on the bottom and on a couple of small areas on the edges. Most of the steak knife-like serrations are present and sharp on both edges of the tooth with only minor breaks. This large impressive tooth was found in the Sahara desert of Morocco. Carcharodontosaurus was older than a T-Rex at 70-80 million years old and is an excellent value for a huge carnivorous dinosaur tooth as a T-Rex tooth this size would cost more than $5,000. Housed in a 6 x 5 inch Riker mount.

Add $15 for domestic shipping.
Estimated Value $800 - 1,200.

Realized $517
