The bone is nice and dense, with great curvature and natural dark coloration. Dinosaur bones are usually extracted from very hard rock, causing them to come out in pieces. It is common practice to reattach them together out at the site. This is not considered a defect, a dinosaur skeleton can have thousands of pieces reattached.
This appears to have been the case here with 4 pieces. The specimen weighs 15.6 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.
This is a superior piece, not some little piece of "chunkasaurus". It would be a great addition for any serious dinosaur fossil collector.
Or for someone who wants to own a large, identifiable piece of the "Tyrant Lizard". 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, as part of that COA, is worthless, as it can later be placed next to any other 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.
