This one is not has complete. I think it's Rex with those serrations and girth and we are only looking at the top 2/3 of the tooth. I would however label it tyrannosaurid indet simply because it's not complete with the base missing, there are big Nano teeth.

The serrations are definitely key in identifying these teeth.

Great photos Aimee. Did you find any other fossils while you were out there? I hear a lot of triceratops teeth and frill pieces are coming out of that area.

I found a nice selection of triceratops teeth as well as a few hadrosaurid teeth and some frill but it was fairly beat up.

I agree weathered frill still a nice keeper. Hey, how much of it do you see around and how many folks can say I collected it. Very nice.
