T. rex Tooth (replica)
T. Rex Tooth

With nearly 60 huge, powerfully constructed teeth designed to bite, rip and tear, it is no wonder that the Tyrannosaurus rex was know as the “Tyrant Lizard King.” The sharp ridges in the enamel — along with the 3,000 pounds of force on each tooth — made short work of its prey.
