1.40" Serrated Allosaurus Tooth On Sandstone - Colorado
This is a 1.40" long, serrated Allosaurus tooth collected this summer from our partner's private quarry East of Dinosaur, Colorado. It has good serrations along both edges and most of the enamel is in good shape. There are a couple of crack repairs with some gap fill restoration in the cracks and some restoration to the very tip.
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.
