Large Tyrannosaurus Tooth
Tyrannosaurus rex
Cretaceous
Hell Creek Formation, Wyoming

Discovered on a private ranch, this large, thick 65-million-year-old T.rex tooth displays excellent enamel, typical thin planchet cracks and some interesting feeding wear on the tip. T.rex specimens are among those fossils most desired by collectors. The species is, without doubt, the most famous prehistoric animal of all time. T.rex teeth are very distinct from other theropod dinosaur teeth, as they are thick with sharp serrations on both sides. Virtually all T.rex teeth found are shed teeth which broke off when an individual was feeding. Measuring 5 1/2 x 2 1/4 x 1 1/2 in
