Chinese dinosaur tooth

Recommended Posts

This tooth was just dug out from Ganzhou, China.  Is it a dinosaur tooth?  It’s Cretaceous formation.

Is this from the Nanxiong Formation?

There are some Tyrannosaurid and other large theropod teeth from there.   Your tooth has some resemblance to them but the preservation is so poor with no serrations evident that its hard to positively say its one with these photos.

Teeth from the Nanxiong formation are mostly of poor quality.  The bones too.

It would take a hand inspection to verify what you have.
