Dromaeosaurus albertensis tooth of gem quality
Beautiful tooth of a raptor from the Hell Creek Formation. Dromaeosaurus is a carnivorous theropod that lived in the late Cretaceous in the area of present-day North America. The Dromaeosaurus was about two feet long. He walked on its hind legs, had feathers and were warm-blooded. His skull was very solidly built to bite powerful with its long teeth. So he drove on rather large prey. That he could kill with a sickle claw that he wore pulled his foot. Pretty special and rare tooth in very good condition.
