Very Nice Rooted Edmontosaurus Tooth
This is a very nice example of a tooth from the "Duck Billed" dinosaur Edmontosaurus annectens. Hadrosaurs had a mouthful of small blocky teeth which they used to grind the tough plant material that they ate. The tooth is unworn, has excellent preservation and unlike most teeth that are found the root is present.
Hadrosaursare frequently referred to as duck-billed dinosaurs and are members of the ornithischian family Hadrosauridae They were fairly common herbivores which roamed Asia, Europe and North America during the Upper Cretaceous Period. Many species of hardrosaurs had distinct crests on their head, some of which had air filed chambers that may have produced a distinct sound. These crests may have been used for both audio and visual display purposes.
