This is an excellent group of 24 larger fossil teeth found in the "dawn of the dinosaurs" sediments in eastern New Mexico! They are from a large reptile, a Phytosaur, that resembled a crocodile, but was actually closer to dinosaurian in it's anatomy! This was one of the dominant creatures of the upper Triassic. The largest tooth measures a bit under 1 1/8" in length & anterior & posterior teeth are included. All of these teeth are good quality, some with minor flaws as found. This should be a very useful group of specimens, great for comparative study or a collection. They were found in Upper Triassic age deposits (Norian age), in the Bull Canyon Formation in San Miguel County, New Mexico on private ranchland that is now closed to collecting. T is a very low opening bid & no reserve. Good luck on this listing!!!
