Ankylosaurus tooth
 


One of my favorites as a kid - the archetypical Ankylosaurian - AnkylosaurusAnkylosaurus teeth appear to be fairly uncommon in Hell Creek - some paleontologists have suggested that Ankylosaurus may have lived in the highlands or nearer the coast of Laramidia. Most "Ankylosaurus" teeth you see for sale are actually Nodosaurid (cf. Denversaurus), for whatever reason, they seem to be far more common. Ankylosaurus teeth also often have wear facets, as this one does. The denticles give their teeth a "leaf-like" appearance. Given their shorter stature, Ankylosaurians probably were low-browsers.

 

This one was found by a rancher last year, and was rediscovered and prepped out of the matrix in October.
