Bite mark on a tyrannosaur tooth?

Hey guys, I found this tooth that has what looks to be fossilized with a slice from a bite. I'm not sure if that is what it is. Has anyone else ever seen this? It's a first for me.

Nice tooth can you do a close up photo in good light. I have tried to enhance and it does look interesting.  I hope you don't mind me messing around with your photo.

Entirely possible, especially if two tried to scavenge the same prey and had an ownership disagreement.

Pretty cool. Evidence of predators eating or fighting predators!

Better photos thanks..  Could very well be a  gouge caused by a tooth.   Predation is a more difficult call since it might have occurred when it was shed.  Nice find.
