Serrated, .42" Theropod (Raptor) Tooth - Judith River Formation

This is a .42" long theropod (raptor) dinosaur tooth from the Judith River Formation of Montana. Due to the variety of Theropod species that come from the Judith River Formation, it's difficult to assign a specific species to the tooth.

The tip of the tooth shows signs of feeding wear, though many of the fine serrations are visible.

Comes in an acrylic display case.

The Judith River Formation is one of the most prolific sources of Late Cretaceous vertebrate fossils. At least sixteen Orders containing more than forty Genera are known from the formation. These include fish, amphibians, mammals, and insects in addition to the reptiles, avian and non-avian dinosaurs (birds). Among the more interesting specimens is Leonardo, a mummified and fossilized Brachylophosaurus. This is a Hadrosaur, a duck-billed dinosaur with amazing preservation of the soft tissues of the body. The pattern in the skin of the feet is even preserved. In addition to Leonardo, the Judith River Formation contained the remains of the theropod Hesperornis, the only known freshwater Hespernorthid, a penguin like bird.
