The premaxillae of Marshosaurus to the left, and Stokesosaurus above, each with four teeth are compared with one of a very small Allosaurus to the right, which has alveoli for five teeth. Although all three of these dinosaurs were carnivorous, notice the difference in the shape of the tooth bearing bones. Similarly, if the teeth of each were present, they could be easily identified, one from another. (April 1972)
