We at Fossils Direct, like to bring our customers new and old, unusual and rare pieces from our wonderful and diverse Geological Britain. Here we have an unusual Iguanadon tooth. What is unusual about this, is that at some time in the animal's life, it accidentally swallowed this tooth and it's stomach juices have slightly acid etched it, to give it this lovely patina. These are often referred to as "Spat" teeth. The tooth itself also has a natural wear where the animal has been "chomping" its was through the Cretaceous vegetation. An unusual but very fine specimen, one for the serious collector!
This specimen is from a juvenile Iguanadon. These plant eating dinosaurs were amongst the most common animals to have roamed the South of England some 120 million years ago. The vertebra has been beautifully preserved and is totally matrix free and has good faces on it. A great addition to any collection.
Iguanadon's were large plant eating herbivore. Here we have a beautiful example of a naturally worn tooth from this iconic British dinosaur. The wear on the tooth is exceptional and has great detail. A lovely specimen !!
