Daspletosaurus tooth?

Recommended Posts

Abstraktum

Hello everybody :)

 

So this tooth here is up for sale. Described as a Daspletosaurus tooth from the Judith River Formation. (Not more information)

Length: 5,3 cm or around 2 inches.

 

There seems to be some crack repair on the tip but other then that it looks good to me.

 

What I wondering is, if it's possible to describe this as a Daspletosaurus tooth? Or are there just to few information for a proper identification? 

 

Any help on what I am looking at is very welcome. Thank you! :) :)

Agreed it's Tyrannosaurid indet.  Could also be a Gorgosaurus.

As far as I know Daspletosaurus did get larger than Gorgosaurus and thus some larger tooth can be identified if they are over the size Gorgosaurus got to.

How would I go about doing this for a tooth of the 3 inch size? Anything I can do with serration counts? Also @Troodon do you know any way? Thanks

There are some teeth that may be outliers but for most density is not a reliable method to differentiate Tyrannosaurids 

 

Distal density
