Up here we have a Nanotyrannus tooth of amazing quality. It’s an average sized tooth, measuring 27 mm, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in preservation. Nearly all serrations are perfectly preserved, and except for some very minor feeding wear on the tip, this tooth is close to perfect. A great chance to own an affordable, good quality tooth from one of the last dinosaurs to ever walk the earth.
All our fossils are consolidated with paraloid b72, to preserve for future generations as is standard procedure within all museums. No repair or restoration to this fossil.
Nanotyrannus lancensis, one of the most controversial species in the palaeontological world, is a species of Tyrannosaurid from the Late Cretaceous of North America. Sharing it’s habitat with the more famous and larger Tyrannosaurus rex has some believing this species is just a juvenile of the Tyrant King. More new finds and studies will have to clarify the exact origin of this species.
The Hell Creek formation, located around the border of the USA and Canada, was the home of some of the most iconic and famous dinosaurs in history. Tyrannosaurus, Triceratops, Pachycephalosaurus and many more, all of them true giants. Sharing their home with a wide variety of other creatures, like crocodiles, birds, amphibians.
