.98" Tyrannosaur (Nanotyrannus) Tooth - Feeding Worn

This is a .98" long Tyrannosaur tooth likely of the species Nanotyrannus lancensis from the Hell Creek Formation of Montana. It was collected this summer from a private quarry in Powder River County. The tip of the tooth shows significant feeding wear/damage.

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.
