.70" Serrated Allosaurus Tooth On Sandstone - Colorado
This is a small, .70" long, serrated Allosaurus tooth collected this summer from our partner's private quarry East of Dinosaur, Colorado. It has good serrations along both edges of the blade, nice tip and enamel. There is a repaired crack running lengthwise through the tooth. It was left still partially embedded in the sandstone it was found in creating a natural display base.
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.
