Such was the headline of some teeth for sale I came across on a website the other day. While you can understand that a commercial site might not differentiate a pterosaur from a dinosaur, or would want to assocaite them together as the average punter may not know what a pterosaur is, the spelling is still not a great start. The description of the teeth though is truly bizarre:
“Genuine Pterasaur dinosaur tooth. These teeth are 2-4cm and are C-grade, economy price. They are of the dinosaur Rebbachisaurus, and Cretaceous age. They come from Morocco.”
I am *most* interested to learn that sauropods could fly, or that pterosaurs were 20 ton terrestrial grazers. Hardly fills you with confidence about their ability to identify other bones does it? (It was incidentally, as far as I could tell, a pterosaur tooth). What’s more odd was that the next item in their list were Rebbachisaurus teeth which were correctly identified as belonging to a sauropod dinosaur.
