Mined from: Morocco
Geological Age: 66mya
Description: These Mosasaur jaws consist of real mosasaur teeth that have been repositioned on sandstone from the mine. Mosasaur was a predator of the ancient oceans. They had a long stumpy tail and paddle-like limbs which helped the Mosasaur glide through the sea and devour pray with ease. They have sharp cone shaped teeth and a massive jaw.
The teeth are real mosasaur fossil teeth, and even the bone fragments are real fossil, however, the piece is reconstructed for display purposes.
This must be done though, otherwise no one would buy bone chips. The tectonic plates move as fast as your finger nails grow. add those 2 inches per year over millions of years... and the ground has had a lot of time to smoosh, smear and pulverize fossils. There are really not many, if any fossils that aren't reconstructed...
