DescriptionA HUGE T. REX TOE BONE
Late Cretaceous - 65-68 million years old
Hell Creek Formation, Harding County, South Dakota
The bones of T. rex are equally as massive as their teeth as exhibited by this monster toe bone. One of the huge foot claws would articulate with this bone in life. T.rex had very strong feet for running traction and also, possibly, for securing prey in an alternative killing scenario to those mentioned above. Measures 6 inches long by 4 ¼ inches wide by 4 ½ inches high. There is restoration to the top of the proximal end and small crescent-shaped areas on each of the lateral lobes of the distal articulation amounting to less than 10% restoration overall.
Estimate: $2,400 - $3,000.
