Two Phytosaur (Redondasaurus) Teeth In Sandstone - New Mexico

This is a beautiful display specimen featuring two exposed Phytosaur (Redondasaurus) teeth still partially embedded in the sandstone in which they were found. The teeth are closely associated together and have nice preservation with good enamel and serrations. The exposed teeth have been prepared so that they display in a very aesthetic manner within the rock. One of the teeth broke within the rock, however the other tooth is complete and in excellent condition.

Phytosaurs looked similar to modern day crocodiles with some minor differences. The main one being that their nostrils were up high on the head instead of at the very front of the snout. They grew up to 16 feet in length and were certainly one of the dominant predators at the time.
