2" Dinosaur (Camarasaurus) Tooth With Feeding Wear - Colorado

This is a nice 2" tooth of Camarasaurus, a giant sauropod dinosaur from the Morrison Formation in Colorado. It had very distinctive teeth that were designed for eating coarse vegetation. There is some feeding wear visible at the top of the tooth and a small portion of the root is still present.

We collected this tooth this past spring from our partners' private quarry East of Dinosaur, Colorado. There are a few crack repairs with some minor gap fill restoration in the cracks.

Camarasaurus could reach up to 75 feet in length and was the most common of the giant sauropods to be found in North America. It had very robust, chisel shaped teeth indicating it probably ate coarser vegetation than other sauropods.
