A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany this item. This is not "like" a T Rex or "African T Rex", it is the real thing. Here is an extremely nice piece of tibia bone from a T Rex.Was found in the Hell Creek Formation, near Glendive, Montana, in 1999. There were a large number of pieces (more than 150). Found in the same exact site, of a T-Rex. The specimen measures about 5.5 inches and weighs 15.65 oz.
Great curvature in this tibia piece where the fibula was near the tibia. Dinosaur bones often are extracted out of extremely hard rock, and they must be taken out in pieces, then reattached on-site or in the lab. This is not considered a defect, but standard procedure with dino bones. That appears to be the case here.
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 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 item described, as part of that COA, is worthless, as it can later be placed next to any other fossil or mineral. 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.
