8.8" Tyrannosaur (Daspletosaur) Phalange (Toe Bone) - Montana

 
 
 
 
This is a 8.8" Tyrannosaur (Daspletosaurus) first phalange (toe bone) from the Two Medicine Formation in Montana. It is in very good condition with repaired and filled cracks. There is one area of reconstruction at the distal end of the bone. This is the first phalange of the second (middle) toe. It is quite stout as it bore most of the weight of the animal when in motion.

The Two Medicine Formation is a geographical formation in Central Montana and South Central Alberta, Canada, and is named for the Two Medicine River in Montana. The formation is predominantly sandstone laid down by rivers and deltas during the Campanian Age of the Cretaceous about 80-75 million years ago. Approximately two thousand feet thick on the western edge, it lies on top of the Virgelle Sandstone formation and under the Bearpaw Shale. It is located between the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains and the Sweetgrass Arch, a tectonic fold feature 40-90 miles east of the Front Range. It is analogous to the Judith River Formation but remains a separate feature.

This specimen includes the pictured custom metal stand.
