Regarding fossil dinosaur teeth, sauropod teeth are rarely discovered in the same fine condition as theropod teeth. Feeding on plant material rather than other struggling dinosaurs, the teeth of herbivorous sauropods were not designed to take punishment like meat-eating dinosaur teeth so their structure is not as durable. What this translates to is that they are seldom found preserved as well as meat-eating dinosaur teeth. Sauropod dinosaur teeth of equal quality, compared to those from a carnivorous dinosaur, are more rare and their absence from the market demonstrates that.
This is a tooth from a yet to be identified DIPLODOCOID sauropod dinosaur of North Africa. This maximum size tooth is amazingly, complete with a sharp tip. It has survived unbroken which is so rare from this herbivorous dinosaur! With the finest preservation in a warm golden hue, this sauropod dinosaur tooth is a real prize specimen. The pointed, unworn tip is a rare trait. COMPLETE WITH NO REPAIR OR RESTORATION.
