And now for that which needs no introduction, but will get one anyway. This Is a BEAUTIFUL tooth from TYRANNOSAURUS REX from the Hell Creek Formation in Harding County, South Dakota, USA! The tooth is a rare Premaxillary, one on the teeth from the very front of the jaw similar to our incisors! Premaxillary teeth are much smaller than the large maxillary teeth on the side of the jaw but are MUCH rarer! The tooth is in great condition with FANTASTIC enamel, INCREDIBLE serrations, a Terrific Tip, and a partial root! The only damage is one repaired break. It measures 1.6225 x .7045 x .4425 inches (4.13 x 1.79 x 1.12 cm) which is VERY large for a T-Rex Premax!

Even if you're not a paleontologist, or even a scientist, you've almost certainly heard of T-rex. The monster sized carnivore ruled Late Cretaceous North America with a stubby, two fingered iron fist! Growing to over 40 feet (12 meters) in length and over 15 TONS of muscle teeth and claws!! Unlike other carnivorous dinosaurs, T-rex was extraordinarily bulky and muscular. Although there were some carnivorous dinosaurs who exceeded T-rex in length, comparing them to T-Rex is like comparing a NBA player to a bodybuilder on steroids! This was reflected in its teeth which are much thicker than other carnivorous dinosaur teeth to withstand its gargantuan bite force, bearing more of a resemblance to serrated spikes than serrated knives. The juveniles were more svelte than the adults, built more for speed than power. It has even been suggested that they would engage in cooperative hunting, the youngsters would use their speed to push potential prey towards the massive jaws of the adults. Like other dinosaurs, T-rex went through multiple sets of teeth in its lifetime, spitting out an old tooth when a new one was ready to take its place.

No fossil collection is complete without a fossil from THE most iconic of all prehistoric species! This is a great opportunity to own a piece of that history!
