1" Juvenile Camarasaurus Tooth On Sandstone - Colorado

This is a 1" long tooth of Camarasaurus, a giant sauropod dinosaur from the Morrison Formation. It had very distinctive teeth that were designed for eating coarse vegetation. Given the relatively small size of this tooth is would have come from a juvenile. It displays some nice feeding wear and was left partially embedded in the sandstone it was found in creating a nice display base. There is one repaired crack with a small amount of gap fill restoration running through the center of the tooth.

This tooth was collected this past summer from our partners private quarry East of Dinosaur, Colorado.

Camarasaurus could reach up to 75 feet in length and was the most common of the giant sauropods to be found in North America. It had very robust, chisel shaped teeth indicating it probably ate coarser vegetation than other sauropods.
