.87" Feeding Worn Allosaurus Tooth On Sandstone - Colorado
This is a feeding worn, .87" long, serrated Allosaurus tooth collected this summer from our partners private quarry East of Dinosaur, Colorado. The tip is missing and appears to be due to feeding wear. Visible serrations on both edges of the tooth. It was prepared so that the piece of sandstone it was found in forms a nice 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.
