SOLD Rooted Thescelosaurus Dinosaur Tooth Hell Creek Formation Fossil Cretaceous
This listing is for an excellent ROOTED Thescelosaurus dinosaur tooth from the Hell Creek Formation of MT dating back to the Late Cretaceous. This area was once a coastal floodplain of the Western Interior Seaway that span across the middle of North America. This area was a prime place for fossilization to occur due to how common the movement of water was as well as sediment that was carried with it.
The tooth measures 3/8" in length and has great enamel and comes with its own gem display case.
Thescelosaurus was a genus of small ornithopod dinosaur that appeared at the very end of the Late Cretaceous period in North America. It was a member of the last dinosaurian fauna before the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event around 66 million years ago.
