1.41" Camarasaurus Tooth Crown in Matrix - Skull Creek Quarry
The crown is 1.41" with detailed, black enamel preservation. There is some repair, as it was found in several pieces, and there is some restoration on a 3/4" area on one side of the base of the tooth to fill in gaps and stabilize the fossil. It comes from the Salt & Pepper Quarry at Skull Creek, near Dinosaur Colorado. This tooth came from a sandy layer in the quarry about a meter below the layers that contain articulated dinosaur remains. This sandy layer contains teeth and tumbled bones fragments but no articulation, most likely representing an event such as a flood.
