Bargain, 1.37" Tyrannosaur Tooth - Judith River Formation

 
This is a 1.37" 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.

The tip of the tooth is missing, hence the bargain price. The serrations are worn, but most on the inner edge are still visible. A repaired crack with small gap fill in the middle of the tooth.

There are three described Tyrannosaurs from the Two Medicine Formation (Judith River Group), 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.
