Deltadromeus Raptor teeth

These raptor teeth are from Deltadromeus a large African raptor. The name means delta runner. They may have been as much as 26 feet in length. This tooth is about 1/2 inch long.  Raptor teeth are serrated like steak knives and for the same reason, cutting meat! Raptor teeth were not designed as killing tools like a T-Rex for instance. Instead they were for devouring their prey, cutting off bite sized peices. The previous owner of this tooth lived in what is now the Kem Kem area of Morocco about 95 million years ago during the late Cretaceous Period.

Raptors were theropods that belonged to the group called dromaeosaurids. Also in this group  is Velociraptor, made famous by the Jurassic Park movie. Velociraptor was however misrepresented by the movie. They were actually much smaller, (about turkey sized), than depicted in the popular film. Al of the raptors were quick and agile hunters. They were feathered carnivores. They had long stiff tails that helped them to balance when running. Raptors had a large claw on each hind foot that was probably for attacking its prey.
