Serrated, 1.62" Tyrannosaur Tooth - Feeding Worn Tip

 
This is a 1.62" 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.

Nice serrations on the inner edge of the tooth but worn on the outer edge. There is some interesting feeding damage to the tip. A couple crack repairs but no restoration.


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.
