A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany this item. Also, the fossil T Rex rib will be in a Riker Mount. Here is a very nice piece of rib bone from a T Rex. Was found in the Hell Creek Formation, near Glendive, Montana.
There were a large number of pieces found in the same area, therapod bones, some too big to be anything from that location, but a T-Rex. Unfortunately not enough to make a skeleton. About 3.3 inches in length, and weighs 24 grams 0.85 oz. As is common, this was found nearly together in a couple pieces, and they were reattached to each other on-site. This is not considered a defect with dinosaur bones, but is standard practice, since almost no bones are found 100% intact with no gluing needed.This is a very nice piece, and a good representation of this massive therapod. The ribs on this particular specimen were all somewhat slender, typical of a young adult T Rex. 66 to 68 million years ago. The last great Age of the Dinosaur.
On a ranch near Glendive that conducts dinosaur fossil digs. 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 are happy to enclose a COA (Certificate of Authenticity). Some words of caution about COAs: Do not let them become a substitute for learning about the fossils.
We have been working with fossils for many years, and we have seen hundreds of very nice-looking COAs, some that are wrong, mis-describing a specimen. Finally, a COA without a photo of the exact item described, tied to that COA, is worthless, as it can later be placed next to any fish fossil. We suggest that instead of relying on a COA, that people read and study the subject.
We want to make sure you are fairly treated by us always. We cordially invite you to visit our store, and see items and fossils ranging from budget to world-class. You will receive the exact item described and photographed, unless clearly stated otherwise. In some cases, that is easy, in some cases, not so much. If you take it out of the United States, you are on your own.
