T-Rex Tooth?


Recommended Posts

  • New Members
Hi all. I've been into fossils for a while and have become somewhat obsessed with picking up a t-rex tooth. However, there seem to be a lot of questionable ones out there.

I'd greatly appreciate thoughts on the following:

The base width v. thickness seems to fit the standard of > 0.6, and the serrations per centimeter appears pretty low (no measurement given, but the tooth is 1 1/8"). The tooth also does not appear to have a lot of curvature.

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

I am by no means an expert, but I would not pay $800 for that. Could be T-Rex I guess, but it is in terrible shape, at least to my eyes.

Thanks. Yeah, the condition is not good, though I think sometimes this tooth is at a reduced price.

What you are looking at is most likly a partial Rex tooth, so its just the tip. Way overpriced for what they are offering. My suggestion is to keep looking.
