Dinosaur Teeth, Eating Habits and Lifestyles

Scientists search for many clues as they strive to learn about dinosaurs. Fossilized bones give information about the size and shape of dinosaurs. Studying a dinosaur’s skull and teeth also gives scientists ideas about what these animals ate, how they hunted for food, and how they digested their meals. Carnivorous dinosaurs usually had very sharp teeth, which they used to rip flesh from bones. The presence of flat teeth hints at dinosaurs that probably ate plants. Many dinosaurs actually got new teeth after their teeth wore down and fell out. New teeth might have appeared as often as every month or two for some dinosaurs.

Saurischians

Sauropods

  • Information About Sauropods: Sauropods were large dinosaurs that ate plants. Many fossil remains of sauropods are incomplete because these animals were very large. Teeth fossils indicate that sauropods were able to eat coarse plant materials.
  • Structure and Evolution of a Sauropod Tooth Battery (PDF): Sauropods received replacement teeth when they lost them. The teeth functioned as units, erupting together in groups.

Theropods

Ornithischians

Stegosaurids

Hadrosaurs

Iguanodontids

Heterodontosaurus

  • Heterodontosaurus Dinosaurs: Heterodontosaurus had different kinds of teeth in its mouth, which forces scientists to guess about the kind of diet this dinosaur ate.
  • Heterodontosaurus Tucki: This small dinosaur was only about three feet long, and it lived during the early Jurassic period.
