I started collecting dinosaur fossils fairly recently and so far I have a pretty good working idea of what I have. There is one exception and I thought I would share on the Fossil Forum and see how far I can get with an ID. My guess is that it I will not get much further then unidentified theropod but it could be something completely I suppose. It does not really look like the Acheroraptor tooth I have and it is larger. It does not look like a Tyrannosaurus of any kind to me either. I will work on getting better pictures up though I did get some detailed shots of the serrations on the micro eye at work. This is my first attempt at really assessing a tooth so my language and/or wording may be not be correct. Call it the learning curve lol This is what I know It is from Hell Creek, Powder County Montana Slightly over 1/2 inch long This is what I observed Serrations are larger on one side than the other and extend further on one side. The denticles look a bit rounded to me and seem very uniform but are really quite small. I counted 5-6 per mm but I had a hard time counting them and am probably wrong lol I THINK it might be a Dromaeosaurid but I am calling it unidentified theropod for now. If you know your dino teeth and feel like giving an opinion, I would love the input. I may not know what it is but I do know that is a pretty nice tooth to have. The serrations are in great shape even though they are small and the tip is worn but not broken. I got it at a reasonable price to so regardless of what it is, I am pretty stoked !
