A rare, TOP QUALITY Nanotyrannus lancensis serrated premaxillary tooth from the western US. This serrated premax (front) tooth measures 13/16" (straight line). The enamel is very good quality. No cracks. No repair or restoration. Legally collected on private land in the Hell Creek Fm., Carter Co., Montana. Authenticity guaranteed.  A rare collector's Nano tooth. I would estimate that less than 2% of the premax teeth are serrated. Note - a gem case display is included.

Nanotyrannus lancensis or "tiny tyrant" is a tyrannosaurid dinosaur from the late Cretaceous period believed to reach ~20 feet. There is much discussion regarding the Nanotyrannus being a juvenile or young T. rex, but there are many arguments in favor of the separate species including tooth count, fused cheek bones, proportionally larger hands, etc. Fossil remains include well preserved teeth, bones, and claws, and are highly valued by collectors. These top quality specimens were all legally collected from private ranch land with the owners permission in the northwestern US (Montana). All teeth are late Cretaceous, Hell Creek Fm., 67 MYA.

Note - Nanotyrannus is a controversial species. Many paleontologists consider these teeth are from young Tyrannosaurus rex

Note - we measure all of our teeth "straight line".
