Tyrannosaurus rex, (Monty) tooth with flattened root

Seventy million years ago, a hulking T. rex nicknamed Monty chomped into a fresh carcass. As the giant meat-eater's teeth ripped flesh from bone, this large tooth may have broken loose and fell to the ground and over time became fossilized. The pressure of the overburden burying the tooth crushed the root of the tooth making it appear extra wide.

T. rex commonly lost teeth like this one in a process we call "shedding." These teeth are usually found by scientists apart from skeleton, often near a plant eating dinosaur carcass that served as a feast for the giant Cretaceous predator.

Specs: Tyrannosaurus rex.
Late Cretaceous (70 million years ago). North America.
