Here is a spectacular vertebrate fossil. This is a HUGE Mosasaurus anceps (Mosasaur) jaw from the Cretaceous Phosphate Beds of Morocco. FOURTEEN large teeth are still firmly embedded in and protruding from the jaw of this predatory Mosasaur. The teeth are wonderfully displayed, and the large jawbone is extremely solid - the bone quality is super. The back side of the jaw shows the tops of MANY erupting teeth still inside the jaw, therefore, there are almost TWO DOZEN TEETH in this jaw! And the jaw is not a composite - it is almost entirely one piece as it was found (some reenforcement on the back side for stability). This is a HUGE, museum quality display fossil from an extinct sea monster - what a conversation piece! [The jaw comes with a fabulous custom wood and brass display mount (not pictured).]

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
