NigerSaurus facts


"Nigersaurus" was a sauropod with a mouth shaped like the straight-edge head of a vacuum cleaner . It had more than 80 small teeth lined in a row . Behind each tooth was a set of more teeth stacked in a column , ready to pop into place when needed as each tooth wore out , it was shed and the next tooth in line took its place its teeth were so small it must have eaten only soft-fiber plants
