1.11" Serrated, Allosaurus Tooth - Feeding Worn Tip
This is a 1.11" long, serrated Allosaurus tooth collected this past summer. It comes from the Morrison Formation at our partners private quarry East of Dinosaur, Colorado. There is a bit of feeding wear to the tip but the serrations are well defined. One repaired crack with a small amount of gap fill restoration.
Allosaurus was a theropod of the Late Jurassic that lived from 156 to 145 million years ago. It was a predator with a massive skull, serrated teeth, and gaping jaws. This powerful and plentiful carnivore genus could grow more than 30 feet long. Due to how plentiful it's fossils are in the Morrison Formation, it's been suggested that they may have been a pack hunter.
