Serrated, 1.63" Allosaurus Tooth Removable From Rock - Colorado

 
This is a nicely preserved, serrated 1.63" long Allosaurus tooth collected from our partners private quarry near Dinosaur, Colorado. It comes with the rock it was found in, and the tooth fits nicely into the impression in the rock. The tooth has nice preservation for the Morrison Formation with nice enamel and fine serrations. There are several crack repairs and some gap fill restoration in the cracks.

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.
