2.36 Inch Tyrannosaurus rex (T-Rex) Tooth!

High quality Tyrannosaurus rex teeth are not only hard to find but are probably the most collectable type of fossil there and tend to get snapped up as soon as they hit the market. This one is in excellent shape with beautiful enamel preservation and is 2.36" long (straightline). There is some natural feeding wear to the tip and about 2/3 of the serrations are visible. There is a single repair to the base of the tooth but no restoration. Not only is this a rare, hard to acquire tooth but it is in great shape overall.

This tooth was found at a private ranch in Butte County, South Dakota this summer. 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 has produced many isolated dinosaur teeth including T-Rex, Nanotyrannus, Raptors and Triceratops, but teeth like this one are RARE finds.
