Is this what you are referring to?
A juvenile specimen of the sauropod dinosaur Alamosaurus sanjuanensis from
the upper Cretaceous of Big Bend National Park, Texas
Journal of Paleontology, Jan 2002 by Lehman, Thomas M, Coulson, Alan B
Skull.-No cranial elements are preserved with this specimen, and none have
yet been described for Alamosaurus. A few isolated teeth have been referred to
A. sanjuanensis (Kues et al., 1980), and several similar rod shaped tooth
fragments, 6 to 8 mm in diameter, were recovered with the present specimen.
