This wonderfully preserved and dense fossil theropod dinosaur vertebra is likely either Carcharodontosaurus or Deltadromeus. Since fossil bones of Sahara dinosaurs are extremely scarce and not fully studied, absolute certainty to a specific species is often impossible. This specimen shows undeveloped centra faces, indicating it came from a juvenile dinosaur, still growing. This condition also did not fuse the dorsal process to the centrum so it is absent because of this immature dinosaur. Fossil dinosaur bones of the Kem Kem Beds, are extremely scarce and the price does not indicate the true rarity of this example.
