Sauropod Dinosaur (Camarasaurus) Tooth Tip - Colorado

 
 
This is a partial tooth of Camarasaurus, a giant sauropod dinosaur from the Morrison Formation. It had very distinctive teeth that were designed for eating coarse vegetation. There is some feeding wear visible at the top fo the tooth and it was prepared still partially embedded in the rock it was found in.

This tooth was collected this past summer from our partners private quarry East of Dinosaur, Colorado.

Camarasaurus could reach up to 75 feet in length and was the most common of the giant sauropods to be found in North America. It had very robust, chisel shaped teeth indicating it probably ate coarser vegetation than other sauropods.
