.90" Partial Phytosaur Anterior Tooth - Arizona

This is a partial anterior tooth (fang) from a Triassic phytosaur (likely Redondasaurus). It comes from the Petrified Forest Member of the Chinle Formation in Arizona. Redondasaurus is considered by many to be synonymous with Pseudopalatus.

Tthe tip is missing hence the bargain price. Comes with an acrylic bubble case.

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 during the Triassic.
