Complete and perfect specimen corresponding to a juvenile individual of the enormous carnivorous dinosaur, the Carcharodontosaurus saharicus. Its essential features are well defined under an exceptional preservation state. From the base to the tip, the strong and developed battery of lateral serrations can be observed. The quality of its enamel is unbeatable, with brilliant and intense colors, ranging from reds and oranges to a particular purple which shows up at the beginning of the root, which is partially preserved.

This specimen does not possess any restoration or reparation. All its characteristics are completely natural and original. Without doubt, it is an exceptional specimen. The Carcharodontosaurus teeth are relatively easy to find in the North African Cretaceous sites. However, its excellent preservation is something much more difficult to find.

The teeth with strong and vivid fossilization colors such as red, orange and black come from small paleochannels composed by thin layers, in the intermediate and upper stratigraphic levels (Red Sandstone Beds), from the Aoufous Formation (Kem Kem Basin, South of Morocco). The lithology of this body of sediment is characterized by the dominance of sandstones (also known as arenites) and fluvial gravel, of siliceous nature. Sometimes large concentrations of iron oxide are present, and then a small sample of that is usually present at the base of the tooth. These mineralizations are responsible for the wide range of beautiful reddish color tones, slowly drawn during millions of years via fossil-diagenetic processes. The complicated sedimentarian architecture of the layers where most large vertebrates are found makes the excavation methodology a real challenge. Sometimes the local miners have to excavate long tunnels that follow the distribution of the fossiliferous layer.
