3.1" Rooted, Allosaurus Tooth With Associated Tooth & Bone
This is a very unique piece, featuring a 3.1" long, rooted Allosaurus tooth associated with a second, 1.2" long unrooted tooth and a section of bone. It was beautifully prepared to create an aesthetic display. While there quite a few repaired cracks in the tooth, there is only some minor gap fill restoration.
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.
