The search for the perfect tooth continues

Recommended Posts

Last week I visited the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic) for about 4 hours and I found many cool things !
Beside of some belemnits I also found some nice teeth. Mainly they are very small but this time I found a nice one.

Its a Temnodontosaurus tooth, a large Ichthyosaur, which mainly hunted ammonites. The teeth had robust roots so that they could withstand the stresses of cracking shells without breaking off.‭

The tooth is about 2.1 cm long and I am very happy about this one. In the past I also found some nice Temnodontosaurus teeth but such teeth in a good condition are very rare.

 

You will maybe wonder now about the negative title but as you can see at the pictures the tooth isnt perfect. A part of the root is missing and the surface is a bit damaged.

 

Here are some impressions:
