Description
This is a rostral tooth from a large sawfish, which is not very common in the Cretaceous sediments of the Kem Kem basin. It is a very controversial taxon and it has generated some degree of polemic. Its specific assignation to the family Pristidae, Peyeria lybica is not clear, and much of the information is still to be confirmed. Very few studies have been made on this species and therefore nowadays we still know very little about the giant sawfish to whom this rostral tooth must have belonged.
It is perfectly preserved, with very beautiful red tonalities. Its characteristic longitudinal stretch marks as well as its transversal growth lines can be seen. Along its upper edge it preserves a very brilliant layer of enamel. It does not have any restoration or reparation.
