These “9” Edmontonia teeth show wear from feeding. While the Edmontonia might not be the most well known dinosaur this particular species had a unique set of teeth that display just how specialized herbivorous dinosaurs were. The flutes in the teeth of the Edmontonia were specifically designed cut and mash the plants it would feed on. No restoration or repair was performed on these fossils. 

The teeth of Edmontonia are virtually indistinguishable from Denversaurus, and these specimens were found independently of any other identifiable material.

Species Description: Edmontonia were herbivorous, armored dinosaurs closely related to ankylosaurids. Their body plating consisted of rows of bony nodules and spines, which were covered in keratin sheaths. Unlike the club-tailed ankylosaur, nodosaurids had tapered, flexible tails.

Fun fact: The Suncor nodosaur-- the most well-preserved dinosaur found to date-- was in such excellent condition upon discovery that the keratin on the armor spikes was still intact. Using pigments extracted from its skin and scales, paleontologists were able to identify a red-and-white camouflage pattern.

*Note: These teeth are listed as “Nodosaurid indet.” as they belonged to one of two possible genuses: Edmontonia, or the recently-classified Denversaurus.
