.46 Inch Edmontosaurus (Hadrosaur) Tooth

Here is an average size tooth from the Edmontosaurus annectens a Hadrosaur. Hadrosaurs had a mouthful of small blocky teeth which they used to grind the vegetation which they ate. As their teeth wore down during their lifetime they "shed" the old tooth and a new tooth took it's place. This is one of these shed teeth.

The tooth was collected from a private ranch in Carter County, Montana.

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.
