A Certificate of Authenticity from us at Pioneer Fossils will accompany this item. This is not "similar to" a T Rex or "African T Rex". Nor is it just a member of the Tyrannosaur family like Albertosaurus or Daspletosaurus. This is the real thing. Here is an extremely nice piece of leg bone (probaby femur) from a T Rex.
Was found in the Hell Creek Formation, near Newell, Butte County, South Dakota, about 20 miles north of Sturgis. There were a large number of pieces (more than 120). Found in the same exact site, of a T-Rex. To make a complete skeleton. All the pieces are from the same back leg, so they are mostly femur, fibula and tibia of the T Rex.
This is a great little piece, with nice wonderful curvature of the bone on both the outer and inner side. Nice trabecular holes in it as well. Trabecular holes or patterns are holes in the T-Rex bones that are built in such a way as to provide strength with less weight for the bone.
The specimen measures about 2.9 inches from tip to tip, and weighs 2.8 oz. 66 to 68 million years ago. The last great Age of the Dinosaur. Tyrannosaurus Rex was king of the predators in the Hell Creek Formation. The name Tyrannosaurus means "Tyrant Lizard" in Greek, and Rex means "King" in Latin.
It could grow to 40 feet, and had the strongest bite of any land animal ever. We invite you to visit our store, which can be accessed on the right side of the top page.

We are happy to enclose a COA (Certificate of Authenticity). Some words of caution about COA's: Do not let them become a substitute for learning about the specimens. We have been working with fossils and minerals for many years, and we have seen hundreds of very nice-looking COA's, some that are wrong, mis-describing a specimen.
Finally, a COA, without a photo of the exact specimen on the COA itself. Is worthless, as it can later be placed next to any other fossil or mineral. We suggest that in addition to relying on a COA, that people read and study the subject. We want to make sure you are fairly treated by us.If you take it out of the United States, you are on your own.
