Platecarpus ptychodon Mosasaur Teeth from Morocco Boxed and labelled specimens of a type of Mosasaurus called Platecarpus ptychodon. These are Cretaceous age (Maastrichtian). They are to right on the 65 Million years old date. They are some of the easiest to Identify but the hardest to get hold of due to be far less common than the other species. You can tell these are Platecarpus by the well defined striations (uniform ridges running vertically down the side of the tooth crown). Artwork by Nobu Tamura.
Mosasaur beaugei and Liodon anceps from Morocco on matrix
All teeth here in the Mosasaur beaugei and anceps (Leiodon/Liodon) tooth section are repaired to some degree but are excellently preserved specimens on phosphate rich sandy matrix and available as loose collector grade teeth sometimes too. Found at the Khouribga Phosphate mines (Cretaceous sands) Grab yourself a bargain! Artwork by Nobu Tamara and Heinrich Harder. Also up for sale are Mosasaur jaws, these are composite but are made from genuine jaw bone and teeth from Mosasaurs and reset in local sandy matrix. All are affordably priced for a great aesthetic piece. This is the most affordable way to own a fossil without the large price tag. They are what they are, and although composite, they are natural products that are used in the creation. We also have teeth offered in boxed and labelled format ideal for ready made gift ideas.
Igdamanosaurus (Globidens) was 6 m (20 ft) in length, its appearance was very much like other mosasaurs. However, the teeth of Globidens were vastly different from other mosasaurs, as they were globular, as suggested in its generic name. Globidens, unlike most other mosasaurs, had semi spherical teeth with rounded nubbin-like points, which were much better suited for crushing tough armoured prey like small turtles, ammonites, nautili, and bivalves. Like its larger relative, Mosasaurus, Globidens had a robustly built skull with tightly-articulating jaws. These are all dated to between 66-96 Million years old and are from the Khouribgan Phosphate mines, Morocco, North Africa. Artwork above is by Dmitry Bogdanov.
