1.13" Allosaurus Tooth - Colorado

 
 
This is a 1.13" long Allosaurus tooth from a private quarry, east of Dinosaur, CO. The serrations are still visible along the inner edge and there is some feeding wear to the tip.

This tooth comes from what is being called the "Salt & Pepper Layer" in the quarry. A meter and a half thick sandy layer which probably represents a river channel deposit. It mostly contains isolated teeth and tumbled bone fragments. The quarry is also the location of the recently announce "Elvis" Torvosaurus find.
