meaning 'tyrant lizard' was a genus of theropod dinosaur. The species
Tyrannosaurus rex commonly abbreviated to T. rex, is a fixture in
popular culture. Fossils are found in a variety of rock formations
dating to the last three million years of the Cretaceous Period,
approximately 68 to 65 million years ago. It was among the last
non-avian dinosaurs to exist prior to the Cretaceous–Tertiary
extinction event. Like other tyrannosaurids, Tyrannosaurus was a
bipedal carnivore with a massive skull balanced by a long, heavy
the Fossil Mall associates purchased a large lot of dinosaur, reptile
and mammal material from our primary collector. He lives in Montana
and has over fifteen years of field collecting experience. Ten days
were spent in obtaining this lot. The fossils were discovered in
Cretaceous stream channel deposits. Some were surface collected
as float, many were partially eroded out of the low-lying surrounding
gullies and bad lands. The work of discovery continued upon his
return home. There the specimens had to be cleaned and identified,
a long and tedious process that lasted many days. Upon completion,
all the specimens were photographed, notated and submitted to us
at the Fossil Mall for consideration of purchase. Needless to say,
we bought the whole batch.
A word regarding the legality of these fossils. Our provider only
collects on private ranch and farmlands of Montana and S. Dakota.
His relationships with these landowners have been cultivated over
many years of door knocking and often difficult negotiations. Our
collector, in the beginning stage of a possible collecting arrangement,
cannot even contemplate a deal until he has walked the land holdings
to discover if there are ancient remains to be found.
