Spinosaurus sp. teeth can be a tricky fossil to discuss online. There are many rumors as to why they are so cheap and they have been given a reputation because of it. Spinosaurus was a very prosperous dinosaur that lived in shallow water deltas in what is modern-day Morocco during the Cretaceous Period, specifically 112 to 72 million years ago. The majority of the teeth that come from this region are less than 3 inches long as Spinosaurus lost their teeth very frequently, similar to sharks. There are many specimens out there that have been restored and repaired pushing them over that 3-inch mark.
This tooth is a great example of what is found in Morocco today. If this tooth still had the very tip it would be over 3 inches. There is a clear indication of where the enamel of the tooth end and the root begins. There are a few hairline cracks that were likely stabilized. There is also some matrix left, likely to cover up missing material.
