.9" Sauropod Dinosaur (Diplodocus) Tooth in Sandstone - Colorado

This is a .9" long tooth of the massive sauropod dinosaur, Diplodocus. It was collected from our partners private quarry in the Morrison Formation just outside of Dinosaur, Colorado. Diplodocus teeth are fairly uncommon at the quarry compared to the theropod teeth. This tooth has two repaired cracks through it and has been left attached to the sandstone it was found in, creating a natural display base.
