1.27" Rebbachisaurus Tooth - Sauropod
This is a very nicely preserved tooth of the sauropod dinosaur, Rebbachisaurus. It's good size, has beautiful enamel preservation and displays the distinctive chisel/peg shape of Diplodocid teeth.
Rebbachisaurusis a genus of sauropod dinosaur of the superfamily Diplodocoidea, up to 20 meters (65 ft) long, that lived during the Early-Late Cretaceous period in Africa about 99 million years ago. This massive four-legged plant-eating animal had a small head, a long, graceful neck and a whiplike tail. Rebbachisaurus is distinguished from other sauropods by its unusually tall, ridged back. The discovery of Rayososaurus, a South American sauropod nearly identical to Rebbachisaurus, supports the theory that there was still a land connection between Africa and South America during the Early Cretaceous, long after it was commonly thought the two continents had separated.
