T Rex Toe Bones - Help Me Decide!


Recommended Posts

Hello All! I am lucky in that I have two T Rex Toe bones to decide from. One is of an adult (5 inches and heavy) that may have pathology on it. Perhaps bitten and as such healed itself "gimpy" (top right). There is erosion through the bone and so the definition is much less. And it is possible that the loss of the section is to erosion but the collector believes there to be pathology. The other is a juvenile toe bone (3 1/2 inch). It is in great condition with good definition. Irrespective of the price, I am interested in you all helping me decide which one to choose. Thanks!

The smaller one is in better condition. I myself like quality over size.

Personally I like things with a bit of pathology. Brings them more to life. I’d do the big one if I couldn’t swing both....

Honestly, from just that photo, the bigger specimen looks more worn than pathological.

Thanks for all of your thoughts. Turns out I was able to get a T. rex foot claw as well and so now I have decided to keep the small one to try to make an entire toe!!
