.75" Juvenile Camarasaurus Tooth - Bone Cabin Quarry, Wyoming

This is a .75" 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 though the very tip is also broken.

This tooth was collected this past summer from the famous Bone Cabin Quarry in Wyoming.

Comes with a small acrylic case.

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.

The Bone Cabin Quarry has historical significance because it was discovered in 1897 and excavated by the American Museum of Natural History from 1898 through 1905. It lies near the famous Como Bluff and got it's name from a nearby sheepherder's cabin built entirely out of fossil dinosaur bones. This quarry now lies on private land, where it has continued to be excavated.
