.75" Cretaceous Fossil Crocodile (Elosuchus) Tooth - Morocco

This is a Cretaceous aged fossil crocodile tooth from the Kem Kem Beds of Morocco. It most likely belongs to the genus Elosuchus.

The Kem Kem Beds are famous for yielding a diverse, Late Cretaceous, vertebrate assemblage including fish, reptiles and dinosaurs such as Spinosaurus. These fossils are found in a thin bed that outcrops around the edge of a large plateau near Taouz, Morocco. Local miners collect these fossils by digging narrow tunnels by hand into this plateau following the layer.

A paper on this assemblage can be found at: Vertebrate assemblages from the early Late Cretaceous of southeastern Morocco: An overview
