1.57" Big, Feeding Worn Allosaurus Tooth On Sandstone - Colorado

This is a big, fat, feeding worn Allosaurus tooth collected this summer from our partners private quarry East of Dinosaur, Colorado. This is a very large, Allosaurus tooth but much of the tip has been worn down due to feeding activity. Serrations are visible along one edge of the tooth, though they are worn from the other. Some of the sandstone was left in place during preparation, creating a natural display base.

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.
