Paleontologists discovered some spear-like teeth and after much debate and analysis deemed it to belong to a large sauropod from France. While Moussaye (1885) did give the genus a name Neosodon ('new tooth'), but for some reason did not assign any species name. A total of six teeth have been found for this member of the Dinosauria clade. Every discovery had led the dinosaur to be reclassified from a theropod to a turiasaur based on other closely resembling teeth. The limited availability and diversity of fossils have made it difficult to provide a detailed explanation about this species. It is clear that the Neosodon was probably one of the large plant-eating sauropods.
Neosodon is pronounced as 'Nee-o-so-don'.
Neosodon, which means 'new tooth', was an Extinct genus of the sauropod clade.
Neosodon was a resident of the Earth during the Tithonian stage of the Jurassic period.
It is possible that the Neosodon became Extinct by the end of the Tithonian stage.
It is unclear where the Neododon lived.
Fossils of this dinosaur species belonging to the dinosaur family were discovered in Wilmille, France.
It is unclear who Neosodon shared its territory with.
It is not known how long this sauropod dinosaur may have survived.
This dinosaur species used to reproduce by laying eggs.
From the tooth recovered from the site, these dinosaurs were classed as large, quadrupedal sauropods. The shape of the teeth resembled that of turiasaurs. The teeth were strong, large, tall, and spear or spatulate-like. We don't know if they used to be slimy.
Only teeth were recovered for this Extinct genus of the sauropod clade.
The communication style of this herbivore sauropod animal is not known.
These dinosaurs, depending on their classification as a part of the Saurischia and Dinosauria clade, would have been large in size.
The speed by which these dinosaurs traveled is unclear.
The weight of the Neosodon has yet to be discovered.
Both sexes would be referred to as Neosodon.
The baby Neosodon would be considered a juvenile.
It is unclear how aggressive this Extinct genus of the sauropod family would have been. However, they were perhaps not predatory and they didn't use to bite.
Fossils of Neosodon only include some teeth. They were quite rare species.
There is no official species name but sometimes the type species is referred to as Neosodon praecursor.
