Is this a real Thescelosaurus tooth?


Recommended Posts

So I just got this Thescelosaurus tooth.  I'm worried that it isn't real or actually a Thescelosaurus.  I've purchased from them before and I just want to make sure.  Can I get some conformation?  Also, this is my first post on the forum!

Hi, we’ll need more pictures of the fossil you have to get a more accurate idea of what you have. It also might be important to note not to call a dealer out if there is a mistake or mention where you got it. I believe this is a part of the forum rules. Welcome to the forum though :).

whatever tooth it is, it is pretty worn.  But that's OK.

It's a very worn tooth, what makes it hard to ID. Pachycephalosaurids and Thescelosaurids have very similar teeth, but I think Thescelosaurus dentary tooth.

Welcome to the forum. 

Like others have said worn teeth are very difficult to identify.  A photo of the other side might help get closer to an ID.  There are characteristics of Thescelosaurus but not ready to make that call.

 

Posted this yesterday applies here but good for future purchases.

For future reference

Welcome to the Forum. :) 

I have moved your post to the "Is it Real" forum. ;) 

Also, I edited your post to remove the link to the seller. 

Please only post images from dealers. No Ad copy, no links. 

Thanks for your cooperation and understanding. 
Welcome again. 

Regards,
