East Central University’s Dr. Mark Micozzi shows a dinosaur tooth he recently uncovered while spending the summer in the Oklahoma Panhandle near Kenton and the Black Mesa Nature Preserve. It was the first paleontological find for Micozzi who is a professor in ECU’s Department of Cartography and Geography. The tooth belonged to a therepod, which was known for its strong hind legs and short front limbs. The finding was also the first indication of a dinosaurian carnivore from that land, dubbed the Homestead Quarry and owned by the Whitten-Newman Foundation.
