Very nice rooted Corythosaurus casuarius tooth
Phenomenal high quality rooted tooth of a well know Hadrosaurid from the Judith River formation. The tooth has been kept in original matrix and in the position as found showing a beautiful contrast between the clean matrix and the by fossilisation cracked root. The name Corythosaurus means "helmet lizard". This Hadrosaur is mostly known for its spectacular crests. Very aesthetic object.
