This Dromaeosaurus sp. "raptor" dromaeosaur dinosaur fossil tooth was found in the famous Judith River Formation of north central Montana. The serrations on both edges have been worn from feeding when the dinosaur was once alive. The enamel is a unique ivory white and cream hue with naturally lustrous enamel preservation.
Dromaeosaurus was a medium-sized carnivore, about 2 m (6 ft 7 in) in length and 15 kg (33 lb) in body mass. Its mouth was full of sharp teeth, and it probably would have had a sharply curved "sickle claw" on each foot. It lived during the Campanian stage of the Late Cretaceous. Dromaeosaurus had a relatively robust skull with a deep snout. Its teeth were rather large and were shaped like a curved cone with a coat of enamel covering the crown.
Despite how dromaeosaurs are portrayed in the movies, most were only knee-high and about the size of dogs, hence the very small teeth that are usually found. Dromaeosaur teeth are found in micro-sites carefully scanning the tiny fossils found in prehistoric environments that once were rich habitats such as swamps, springs or stream beds.
