These teeth come from the Kem Kem formation in Morrocco and belong to from Abelisaurids, which are a part of a group of carnivorous dinosaurs known as theropods. Most teeth feature intact serrations, though small portions may be missing due to feeding wear or other damage. They are available in two sizes: Small (0.2 to 0.4 inches) and Medium (0.4 to 0.7 inches).

The mid to late Cretaceous Kem Kem group has a few other notable fan favorite theropods as well, like Spinosaurus, Deltadromeus, and Carcharodontosaurus. Before more research was done into shed teeth coming from Morocco, Abelisaurid teeth were misidentified as tyrannosaurids. 

What were Abelisaurids?


Abelisaurid theropods first appear in the fossil record in the early Jurassic, though they survived until the extinction of the non-avian dinosaurs at the end of the Mesozioc. They lived in South America, Madagascar, India, North Africa, and are less common in North America and Asia. Like most theropods, Abelisarids had stocky hind limbs and potentially vestigial forelimbs. Their skulls were also quite varied with ornamentation.
