Description:  This vertebra belongs to a dinosaur carnivore, it could be Spinosaurus, Carcharodontosaurus. Really uncommon material, we had never had a vertebra of this size and quality in Toptrilos, it is without a doubt a great opportunity.


The Kem Kem beds are located along the border of Morocco with Algeria. These are continental deposits belonging to the Cretaceous period, specifically to the Cenomanian floor (100.5 - 93.9 million years). The area is made up of a spectacular stone cliff that extends 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." They all agree that this site "constitutes a window to the Age of the 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.
