Authentic Triceratops Tooth in Riker Display

Every fossil is one of a kind, unique. Your authentic fossil will be similar the one shown in the photos. Teeth vary in size from 1/2 to 1 inches long. If you are not completely satisfied with your specimen you can return it for a full refund minus the shipping charges.

Your authentic fossil specimen comes in a 12.25 x 8.25 inch Riker display case. Riker display cases have been the gold standard for fossil and collectable displays and protection for decades. The case is constructed of fine fiberboard with a glass top that can be removed just be taking out a couple of long heavy duty straight pins.

Triceratops had hundreds of teeth in several long rows. As the teeth wore down from chewing rough vegetation new teeth pushed out the old and often broken teeth. Teeth of Triceratops can be commonly found in parts of the Hell Creek Formation that primarily outcrops in Montana, North & South Dakota. The vast majority of the teeth that are found are the worn and discarded teeth, referred to as "spitters.

Triceratops was one of the last non-avian dinosaurs, and lived alongside dinosaurs like Edmontosaurus and Tyrannosaurus shortly before the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event that occurred 66 million years ago.

Individual Triceratops are estimated to have reached about 7.9 to 9.0 meters (26.0–29.5 feet) in length, 2.9 to 3.0 meters (9.5–9.8 feet) in height, and 6.1–12 tons (13,000–26,000 pounds) in weight.

The most distinctive feature is their large skull, among the largest of all land animals. The largest known skull (specimen MWC 7584, formerly BYU 12183) is estimated to have been 2.5 meters (8.2 feet) in length when complete, and could reach almost a third of the length of the entire animal.

It had a single horn on the snout, above the nostrils, and a pair of horns approximately 1 meter (3.3 feet) long, with one above each eye. To the rear of the skull was a relatively short, bony frill, adorned with epoccipitals in some specimens. Most other ceratopsids had large fenestrae in their frills, while those of Triceratops were noticeably solid.
