Hadrosaurid shed tooth

A shed tooth from a juvenile Hadrosaurid. Their teeth are arranged in dental batteries which like a conveyer belt constantly replace worn teeth. Because these marvels of eating machinery house hundreds of teeth at a time, their worn teeth are fairly common. In addition to being worn by the animal's mastication, shed teeth are often smoothed and tumbled by rivers before they are buried in sediment and fossilized.
