Plain Language Abstract

TATE-099 is a nearly complete apatosaurine skull collected from the Morrison formation of Como Bluff, Wyoming. This study compares and describes TATE-099 and discusses the differences in the unerupted dental magazine in comparison with other sauropod dinosaurs. The results of this study suggest that different sauropods were occupying different niches in the late Jurassic ecosystems of North America.
