A remarkable dental battery of the hadrosaurid dinosaur, Edmontosaurus annectens. Hadrosaurs had highly sophisticated teeth arranged in these batteries which advanced teeth in a conveyer-belt fashion to replace worn ones. Even the roots of teeth were used once the enameled crowns wore away. This one was in active use and fossilized when the animal died.


This battery in particular is special, as it was collected by former forum member Troodon, seen in his "My Jurassic Park" thread here. It comes from a hadrosaur-dominated bone bed.
