.29" Fossil Hadrosaur (Edmontosaurus) Shed Tooth- Montana

This is a .29", shed tooth of the Hadrosaur, Edmontosaurus annectens from the Hell Creek Formation, Montana.

Hadrosaurs had a massive battery of small teeth (up to 900 in some species) in their mouth for grinding tough vegetation and they shed their teeth as they become worn. These shed teeth, often called "spitters", are small and block like in appearance.

Comes in an acrylic display case.

Hadrosaurs are frequently referred to as duck-billed dinosaurs and are members of the ornithischian family Hadrosauridae They were fairly common herbivores which roamed Asia, Europe and North America during the Upper Cretaceous Period. Many species of hardrosaurs had distinct crests on their head, some of which had air filed chambers that may have produced a distinct sound. These crests may have been used for both audio and visual display purposes.
