Premium 1.61 Inch Nanotyrannus (T-Rex) Tooth

 
This is a collector grade tooth from either Nanotyrannus lancensis or a juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex, though many scientists believe they are really the same species.

The tooth has amazing dark-brown enamel excellent serrations, a small portion of the root still attached and a nice tip. There has been a single repair to the tooth but no restoration. This is truly a quality Tyrannosaurid tooth from South Dakota.

The tooth was collected in the summer of 2012 from a well known private quarry in Butte County, Montana which was discovered back in the 1980's It represents a river channel deposit and consists of 2 meets worth of sandstone and gravel. Teeth and other bone material being swept down the river 66 million years ago would have been deposited here. the Hell Creek Formation represents a sub-tropical floodplain which would have been similar to coastal, modern-day Louisiana.
