Triceratops horridus Tooth with Double Root
70 Million Years BP
Late Cretaceous
Maastrichtian
Hell Creek
Butte County, Montana

 

This tooth is a rare find.  Although Triceratops sp. teeth are common, it is rare to find even partial roots or complete crowns.  This specimen demonstrates the double-root system of some ceratopsian teeth.  In the jaw of the dinosaur, a replacement tooth would have been nestled in between the two roots, waiting to push out the tooth above when it had worn out.
