Ornithocheirus simus Pterosaur tooth
Tooth of a Jurassic pterosaur of the family of the Ornithocheirids, the Ornithocheirus simus. The tooth is in perfect condition and shows very nice natural wear. Ornithocheirus simus, is only known from fragmentary jaw tips. It was believed in the past that Ornithocheirus was one of the largest pterosaurs to have existed, with a wingspan possibly measuring 40 feet (12.2 m) wide. Very interesting collection item.
