2.9" Cretaceous Crocodilian Jaw Section - Hell Creek Formation

 
 
 
 
This is a nicely preserved fossil crocodilian jaw section from the 66 million year old Hell Creek Formation of Carter County, Montana. Some of the cracks through this jaw section have been repaired with glue, while others have maintained stability with just the cemented rock within the cracks. The teeth are composite (from more than one crocodilian) and have been glued into place within the teeth sockets.

There are a number of genres of crocodiles and alligatoroids described from this formation with very similar teeth. Typically most of teeth found in this location just get assigned to Leidyosuchus by collectors.

This specimen comes with a richer display box.
