.43" Posterior Phytosaur (Pseudopalatus?) Tooth

This is a posterior tooth from a Triassic reptile called a Phytosaur. It may have come from the genus Pseudopalatus. It was collected from the Redonda Formation in Quay County, New Mexico. Comes in an acrylic display case.

Phytosaurs looked similar to modern day crocodiles with some minor differences. The main one being that their nostrils were up high on the head instead of at the very front of the snout. They grew up to 16 feet in length and were certainly one of the dominant predators at the time.
