Tyrannosaurus rex, world record tooth

This incredible tooth was found in the summer of 2007, in the Hell Creek Formation of Montana. It measures an unbelievable 15 5/8 inches long from the tip around the curve to the end of the root. This makes this tooth the largest ever found. This replica is painted to look exactly like the original, right down to the satins caused by grass roots surrounding the tooth when it was found. Sure, it’s a little privy but you won’t find a better or larger replica Trex tooth anywhere.

Authentic T-rex teeth can sell for over $1000 per inch. The original tooth from which this cast was make had exceptional preservation and even the very fine, sharp, serrations along the edges of the tooth were preserved. T-rex often broke or shed its teeth while feeding. Over time, a new tooth would grow from the old tooth socket. Thus, T-rex had a variety of sizes of teeth, from only 1 inch above the gum line to 11 inches including the root. T-rex was up to 18.5 feet tall, 50 feet long, & weighed up to 6 tons. Most specimens have been found in the western United States and Canada. They were the dominant predators of the upper Cretaceous which ended about 65 million years ago.
