.82" Rooted, Baby Tyrannosaur Tooth - Judith River Formation

This is a really cool, theropod tooth from the Judith River Formation of Montana. It's a small, fully rooted, baby Tyrannosaur tooth still partially embedded in the sandstone that it was found in. The preservation is stunning with nearly flawless enamel and visible serrations. It's quite rare to get teeth with a full root intact making this a very special piece.

There are three described Tyrannosaurs from the Two Medicine Formation & Judith River Formation; Albertosaurus, Gorgosaurus and Daspletosaurus. Research done on teeth from these three Tyrannosaurs has concluded that isolated teeth are statistically impossible to assign to a specific genus because they are so similar.
