Superb T-Rex tooth
Superb Tyrannosaurus rex Tooth
Tyrannosaurus rex
Cretaceous
Hell Creek Formation, Garfield County, Montana

Discovered in the famed Hell Creek Formation in 2008, exceptional enamel, extraordinarily well-defined serrations and superb condition distinguish this Tyrannosaurus rex tooth. Found completely submerged in a channel deposit on private land, the tooth boasts a complete lack of restoration. Of further significance is a fascinating pathology suggesting that the tooth suffered a shearing blow by another tooth; this is evidenced by the visible serration marks on the specimen. The question of whether the tooth was lost in combat with another individual lends a noteworthy mystique to this marvelous piece. This large T. rex tooth rates as one of the finest specimens to have been offered on the market.
