DESCRIPTION:
Here we introduce this exceedingly rare dinosaur tooth from Elrhaz Fm. It is an authentic tooth of Ouranosaurus, herbivorous basal hadrosaur dinosaur that lived during the Aptian stage of the Early Cretaceous of modern-day Niger and Cameroon. Ouranosaurus was a relatively large iguanodontian, estimated by Taquet in 1976 to have a body length of 7 metres (23 feet) and a weight of 4 tonnes (4.4 short tons).

The Elrhaz Formation is mostly made up of fluvial sandstones. A diverse assemblage of fossil animals has been recovered, bony fish, turtles, several genera of crocodylomorphs (Anatosuchus, Araripesuchus, Sarcosuchus, and Stolokrosuchus), undescribed ornithocheirid pterosaurs, the theropod dinosaurs Eocarcharia, Kryptops, Suchomimus, and an undescribed noasaurid (possibly Bahariasaurus), the sauropods Nigersaurus and an undescribed titanosaurian (Malawisaurus), and the iguanodontians Lurdusaurus and Ouranosaurus.

Not restored or glued.
