Bargain, .73" Allosaurus Tooth On Sandstone - Colorado
This is a bargain, .73" long, serrated Allosaurus tooth collected this summer from our partners private quarry East of Dinosaur, Colorado. The tip is missing and it is broken off near the base, hence the bargain price. Visible serrations along one edge of the tooth. It was left partially embedded in the sandstone it was found in.
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.
