is an example of a large meat-eating dinosaur tooth. It is from a dinosaur known
as Torvosaurus, a large predator during the Jurassic Period. The teeth were
blade-like and serrated for cutting and tearing through the skin and bone of
their prey, the large Sauropods and Camptosaurs (both herbivores or
plant-eaters). The tooth size and shape varies within the jaw, but most curve
back towards the throat. This particular tooth is 4 inches in length. It is
believed to be a shed tooth, broken off during a feeding episode as none of the
tooth root is present. It was excavated from the Jurassic Morrison Formation at
the Dinosaur Safaris Inc. dig site in Wyoming.-- Text and Photo by: Bob
The name "dinosauria" was choosen by
Dr. Richard Owen, an English doctor. Owen first used the word in his "Report
on British Fossil Reptiles" presented to the British Association
for the Advancement of Science in 1841. "Dinosaurs" is a
combination of two Greek words"deinos (fearfully great)" and "sauros
(a lizard)." Thus the name literally means "fearfully great
lizard." not terrible lizard.
