Tyrannosaurid Teeth

Recommended Posts

Tyrannosaurid teeth aren't the rarest we find but there's always that rush when one is sighted. Here's a few from various formations from about 75 to 65 mya. These still have their enamel but often they are found more 'rough' having been shed by T Rex... gone 'down the hatch' and though the digestive system. Collectors of the teeth of other predators (such as sharks) often find self-digested teeth.

These teeth have been striped of enamel and roughened by self-digestion

Beautiful collection. B) Looks like you have enough to make a neckless. What are the their sizes? I know T-Rex can exceed 6."

Thanks for sharing. :)
