Serrated, 1.4" Tyrannosaur Tooth - Judith River Formation, Montana

This is a 1.4" long Tyrannosaur tooth from the Judith River Formation of Montana. This formation is approximately 70 million years old, or about 5 million years old than the Hell Creek Formation which produces T-Rex. Comes with a floating frame display case.

The serrations along both edges of the tooth are present, with some minor chipping in spots. The enamel is in excellent condition, though there is a section of chipped enamel that starts on one face of the tooth, wraps around the serrated edge and ends on the opposite face of the tooth. The tip of the tooth is feeding worn. There is no indication of any repair or restoration to this beautiful tooth.


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.
