Nano-Tyrannus (Young T-Rex?) Teeth for Sale
Nanotyrannus ("dwarf tyrant") is a genus of tyrannosaurid dinosaur, and is possibly a juvenile specimen of Tyrannosaurus Rex. It is based on CMN 7541, a skull collected in 1942 and described by Charles W. Gilmore in 1946, who gave it the new species Gorgosaurus lancensis. In 1988, the specimen was re-described by Robert T. Bakker, Phil Currie, and Michael Williams, then the curator of paleontology at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, where the original specimen was housed and is currently on display. Initial research indicated that the skull bones were fused, and that it therefore represented an adult specimen. In light of this, Bakker and colleagues assigned the skull to a new genus, which they named Nanotyrannus for its apparently small size. However, subsequent work has cast doubt on this, and some paleontologists no longer consider it a valid genus—since the fossil was a contemporary of Tyrannosaurus rex, many paleontologists now believe it to be a juvenile T. rex, especially since the discovery in 2001 of a new Nanotyrannus specimen, nicknamed "Jane." The original Nanotyrannus specimen is estimated to have been around 17 feet (5.2 meters) long when it died.
