Sensational dinosaur tooth discovery

A fossilised dinosaur tooth discovered on the island of Bornholm has been declared a Danish national treasure (Danekræ) by the Natural History Museum of Denmark, which is under the jurisdiction of the University of Copenhagen. It is the third discovery of a dinosaur tooth on Bornholm, of which two have now been declared as national treasures. All dinosaur tooth fossils found so far in Denmark originate from the sand layer deposited in the Robbedale region of southern Bornholm during the early Cretaceous Period, about 140 million years ago.
