This is an absolute gem of a tooth of Edmontosaurus annectens, the predominant hadrosaur species that can be found in the Lance Formation of Wyoming, U.S.A.. It is the MOST BEAUTIFUL COLOR IN A RARE TONE OF RED, ORANGE AND CREAM. This is the first time we ever encountered such an attractive color tooth from this dinosaur as most have black or dark brown enamel. This tooth has only slight feeding wear and a root so it came from a dinosaur that died with this tooth in its jaw! These kind of teeth are far more rare than more prevalent "spit" teeth that are worn, used-up teeth ejected from the jaws continuously over the life of the dinosaur. Hadrosaurs were an important part of the food chain as these herbivores were a primary food source for the meat-eating dinosaurs in the same region, namely Tyrannosaurus rex, Nanotyrannus and Dromaeosaurs. No fossil tooth collection should be without at least one nice complete example tooth to display alongside fossils of the very dinosaurs that terrorized these peaceful beasts of the Late Cretaceous.
