1.73" Partial Tyrannosaurus rex (T-Rex) Tooth

This is a partial tooth from the king of the dinosaurs, Tyrannosaurus rex or T-Rex. T-Rex teeth are by far the most collectable of the dinosaur teeth because of the name recognition of this iconic dinosaur. The tooth is 1.73" long with wonderful enamel preservation but the tip and one side of the tooth is missing. Some of the outer serrations are still very. This is true T-Rex tooth and not a tooth from the smaller tyrannosaurid at the quarry, Nanotyrannus. Comes with a riker mount display case.

This tooth was found at a private ranch in Butte County, South Dakota in the summer of 2014. It comes from a quarry known as the "Tooth Draw Quarry" that has produced many high quality dinosaur teeth over the past several decades. In the Late Cretaceous some 65 million years ago, this quarry was located in a sub-tropical floodplain that would have been similar to modern day coastal Louisiana. It consists of 2 meters of alternating sandstone and gravel, representing a river channel lag deposit. It contains many isolated dinosaur teeth including T-Rex, Nanotyrannus, Raptors and Triceratops, but teeth of this high quality are rare finds.
