Specimen approx. size: 6.08"


This specimen boasts well-preserved enamel with a rich brown color. Most of the serrations on both edges of the tooth remain intact. The presence of a partial root only adds to the rarity and distinctiveness of this item. A must-have for collectors, T.rex teeth of this caliber are exceedingly rare and highly sought after in today's market.


Tyrannosaurus is one of the most iconic dinosaurs and is known from numerous specimens, some of which have individually acquired notability due to their scientific significance and media coverage.

Tyrannosaurus is a genus of coelurosaurian theropod dinosaur. The species Tyrannosaurus rex, often called T. rex or colloquially T-Rex, is one of the most well-represented of the large theropods. Tyrannosaurus lived throughout what is now western North America, on what was then an island continent known as Laramidia. 

Researchers estimated that an adult T. rex could bite with a force up to about 57,000 newtons (12,800 pounds). (Juveniles didn’t even come close, with a wimpy bite of about 4,000 newtons, or 880 pounds.) While not the strongest bite of all time, it appears to have been plenty to dispatch an Edmontosaurus or Triceratops caught unawares.
