Description: Tooth of a spinosaurid dinosaur with its root preserved. The enamel of this tooth is 100% natural and is preserved in an exquisite state, but its root has been repaired, which is not a problem since there are practically no examples of Spinosaurus teeth that preserve the root. Great opportunity, it is one of the most beautiful Spinosaurus teeth that we have had in Toptrilos.

The Kem Kem beds are located along the Moroccan border with Algeria. These are continental deposits belonging to the Cretaceous period, specifically to the Cenomanian stage (100.5 - 93.9 million years). The area is composed of a spectacular stone cliff that stretches over 250 kilometers in length and comprises a powerful sequence of between 150-200m of siltstones and fluvial sandstones. Several species of vertebrates, including elasmobranchs, bony fish, coelacanths, turtles, crocodiles, pterosaurs, dinosaurs, and birds have been found in this area. It is for this reason that various researchers from the most prestigious universities have referred to this site as "an area where danger lurks by land, sea and air." All of them agree that this site "constitutes a window to the Age of Dinosaurs in Africa." It is precisely here, in Kem Kem, where the fossil remains of three of the largest predatory dinosaurs ever known have been found.
