is a shed tooth of the ceratopsian dinosaur, Agujaceratops from the Aguja Formation in Texas. Originally known as Chasmosaurus it was moved to a new genus Agujaceratops meaning "Horned face from Aguja" in 2006. Agujaceratops would have had a battery of hundreds of teeth for grinding plant material and frequently shed teeth during it's lifetime. This is one of those shed teeth.

Comes in an acrylic display case.

This specimen was collected within the past year on private deeded property in Brewster County, Texas. You won't see any other dinosaur material from the Aguja Formations for sale because nearly all of the formation lies the borders of a national park or in Mexico which can not be collected. One of our partners was lucky enough to purchase several hundred acres of ranch land in Texas containing a good exposure of these formations and we will be offering more material from the locality in the future.

The Aguja Formation is the equivalent (age wise) of the Judith River Formation in the Northern US and Canada.
