From the Moroccan Desert - Mosasaur
60 Million Years in the Sand
This is a nice large tooth from a Mosasaur, still in the matrix or rock. Mosasaur was a marine reptile with four large paddles and a large, powerful tail. It had a loosely hinged jaw which allowed it to swallow its prey almost whole. Mosasaurs lived about 65-85 million years ago.
