About Spinosaurus

Spinosaurus is the largest known theropod dinosaurs and lived between 99 to 93.5 million years ago in the Late Cretaceous period. The exact size of this prehistoric behemoth is under debate but recent finds and studies have suggested that Spinosaurus reached a length of 50 ft and weighed as much as 20 tons. It had an unusual appearance and is famous for the long, distinctive spines along its back.
Spinosaurus was piscivorous, meaning that it ate fish, but it likely scavenged and fed on whatever it could find, including other dinosaurs. Recent discoveries indicate that is was probably semi-aquatic, not just hunting fish from the warm shores of the Cretaceous lakes, rivers, and tidal flats of North Africa, but also swimming and diving for its prey.Teeth Information            How Big Are Spinosaurus Teeth? When talking about dinosaur tooth size it is very important to distinguish between whether you are measuring just the crown of the tooth or also including the root of the tooth. The root of a Spinosaurus tooth may be 2 or 3 times as long as the crown. Some people include the root when comparing tooth sizes, others just compare crown sizes.
The very largest Spinosaurus teeth have crowns of around 5 inches long but may exceed 12 inches in length if the full root is present (very rare). The vast majority of teeth are much smaller, in the range of 1 to 3 inches in length. The reason for this is that dinosaurs shed their teeth while growing, so you will end up with many more teeth of juveniles or sub-adults than fully-grown Spinosaurs.
Nice teeth over 3 inches in length are difficult to find on the market, particularly ones that are in good condition. Not only are these larger teeth rarer in the fossil record, but they are much more likely than the small tooth to have been broken or to have sustained significant damage. Most larger Spinosaurus teeth for sale have been repaired, heavily restored or are composites of multiple partial teeth.
