Gorgeous 1.50" Nanotyrannus Tooth - Montana

 
 
This is a beautiful 1.50" long Tyrannosaurid tooth of the genus Nanotyrannus lancensis tooth from the Hell Creek Formation of Montana. The enamel is nearly flawless on this tooth and it has no restoration or repairs. Most of the anterior serrations are warn but the posterior carina serrations are well preserved.

There is a hot debate among paleontologists about whether Nanotyrannus and Tyrannosaurus rex (T-Rex) are really the same species, with Nanotyrannus representing juveniles. Recent finds that are soon to be published should put this debate to rest, definitively proving that Nanotyrannus is in fact a separate genus and valid genus. Nano teeth tend to be much more finely serrated, and much thinner/blade like t-rex teeth, in addition to being smaller.
