Rare, .9" Apatosaurus Tooth - Colorado
This is a rare, sauropod dinosaur tooth from an Apatosaurus collected from our partner's Morrison Formation quarry east of Dinosaur, Colorado. They typically only find one or two Apatosaurus teeth a season, with the other Sauropod dinosaurs such as Camarasaurus and Diplodocus being much more abundant.
This tooth comes from what is being called the "Salt & Pepper Layer" of the Skull Creek Quarry, near Dinosaur. Colorado. Within the past several years this quarry has produced articulated remains of several types of dinosaurs including large theropods, sauropods and Ornithischia. There is a thin layer in the quarry, probably representing a sandy river bottom that produces many isolated teeth and tumbled bone fragments. The quarry is also the location of the recently announce "Elvis" Torvosaurus find.
