This listing is for an incredible adult Tyrannosaurus Rex toe bone from the Hell Creek Formation of Montana. It is just over 5 long and was an underground find mostly but there is a small portion of the proximal end that is bleached white which suggests that is how it was discovered!
There is absolutely no repair or restoration! One of the sides of the distal end appears to have a healed injury. The bone surface is very disfigured compared to other examples of this fossil. There is a possibility of a weird preservation but I lean towards a unique pathology.
The fossil comes with a COA upon request. The Hell Creek Formation dates back to the Late Cretaceous approximately 66-68 million years in age. It represent the coastline of an ancient sea that spanned across the middle of North American during much of the Mesozoic Era. That is why dinosaur remains are so common in the American West, those areas were the ancient floodplains of a seaway that no longer exists. Dinosaur like the famous Tyrannosaurus Rex, Triceratops and Pachycephalosaurus were part of this amazing ecosystem.
Other dinosaur such as Edmontosaurus, Thescelosaurus, Struthiomimus and Oviraptorids existed here as well. And of course there were the Dromaeosaurs Raptors that inhabited this area and preyed upon these species such as Acheropraptor and Dakotaraptor.
