Sauropod dinosaur teeth are rarely discovered in the same fine condition as theropod teeth. Feeding on plant material rather than other struggling dinosaurs, the teeth of herbivorous sauropods were not designed to take punishment like meat-eating dinosaur teeth so their structure is not as durable. What this translates to is that they are seldom found preserved as well as meat-eating dinosaur teeth. Sauropod dinosaur teeth of equal quality, compared to those from a carnivorous dinosaur, are more rare and their absence from the market demonstrates that.
This is a superb and RARE tooth from an BABY sauropod dinosaur of North Africa. This tooth displays beautiful dark enamel and a natural luster. Most of these teeth have a feeding wear facet on the end but this specimen shows no feeding wear. Unusually small and thin.
