Serrated, .66" Tyrannosaur Tooth - Judith River Formation

This is a pristine, .66" long, serrated, Tyrannosaur tooth tip, from the Judith River Formation of Montana. This formation is approximately 75 million years old, or about 9 million years older than the Hell Creek Formation which also produces T. rex.

It would have almost certainly come from a juvenile animal. Very nice preservation.

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 genre because they are so similar.
