Triceratops--the famous three-horned dinosaurs of the Cretaceous--often shed teeth as they constantly chomped fibrous vegetation. The smooth surface of this tooth shed shows the great use it had for the Triceratops!
Triceratops are one of the most well-known dinosaurs of the Cretaceous Period with their three-horned skulls. They produced between 400 and 800 teeth in their lifetime, consistently replacing and shedding "spitters." Their teeth were grouped in "batteries" that contained up to 5 stacked teeth within 30 to 40 columns on each upper and lower jaw.
