100 Grams Fossil Teeth from the Genntour Basin in Morroco. 70 MILLION YEARS OLD!!!! Mosasaur, Spinosaur, Hadrosaur, Gar, Ray, Shark, Enchodus (Sabretooth Fish) AND MORE!!! These reptiles lived during the latter part of the Cretaceous period of the Mesozoic Era and spent their entire lives at sea. Mosasaurs were carnivores eating fish, sea urchins, turtles, and shellfish. Although they lived at the same time as many of the dinosaurs, and like the dinosaurs became extinct during the Cretaceous-Tertiary mass extinction, Mosasaurs were not dinosaurs, but lepidosaurs (the same taxonomic group which includes lizards, snakes and sphenodonts such as the tuatara) Enchodus is an extinct genus of bony fish. It flourished during the Upper Cretaceous and was small to medium in size. One of the genus' most notable attributes are the large "fangs" at the front of the upper and lower jaws and on the palatine bones, leading to its misleading nickname among fossil hunters and paleoichthyologists, "the saber-toothed herring". These fangs, along with a long sleek body and large eyes, suggest Enchodus was a predatory species. Hadrosaurs were herbivores (plant-eaters) and only had teeth in the cheek area, not the front of the mouth. The many rows of teeth were perfect for effectively grinding up rough vegetation for easy digestion.
These are extra super cool. I love them. Thank you!
