‘Magnificent T. Rex’ Found on Montana Ranch, Museum Reports (With Pictures)

T. rex tooth

The tip of a Tyrannosaurus rex tooth recently excavated in eastern Montana shows serrations along the edge.

These serrations along the ridge, or keel, of the tooth gave it knife-like action as it cut through flesh and bone.

But recent research has also found that the angles of these ridges varied, likely to help in directing food into the mouth.

As if that would be a problem.
