$14 (plus shipping)

Museum quality reproduction of an Iguanodon bernissartensis lower tooth.  The original fossil came from the Cretaceous Period. Wealden Beds of Sussex, UK and displays the crown (some natural wear can be seen) and part of the root.  The original tooth was collected by Mantell in the 1820s.  Certain fossils are just too costly and some are one-of-a-kind specimens that can only be viewed at museums.  This fossil reproduction is an exact copy, cast directly from the actual fossil itself.  It even feels like the original.  

The replica tooth measures 40mm x 22mm on a matrix of 50mm x 33mm.

Iguanodon orientalis 

Iguanodon means "Iguana tooth". It is classified as: Ornithopoda; Iguanodontia; Iguanodontidae

Early Cretaceous

Its hands had four fingers and a spike-like thumb, which it may have used to defend itself. Its teeth are reminiscent of those in hypsilophodonts, flattened side to side, and leaf-shaped. They probably sliced up plant material like a pair of scissors.

Because of the large number of skeletons of these dinosaurs frequently found together and evidence from fossil track ways, palaeontologists think they may have formed herds. Their remains are most often found in sediments deposited in swampy, lake and river edge environments suggesting that is the place they spent most of their time munching on horsetails (like the living Equisetum), ferns, cycads and various kinds of conifers.
