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 is a common example of what is found in this region of the world in regards to fossils. Measuring 2.4 inches long, there is some feeding wear and damage to the tip of the tooth. There is also some matrix left, likely to cover up missing material. It is likely this tooth was slightly repaired in the field, indicated by the natural crack in the root of the tooth which could be the reason behind the extra matrix. This is very common for Morrocan specimens.
