    I bought this bone fragment for $10 and it said that it came from a discovery of a badly degraded skull of a tyrannosaurus. It is from the Hell Creek Formation and I was wondering if anyone could confirm that it is from a tyrannosaurus, or from something else

    It is probably not possible with a small piece to identify a dinosaur bone to this level.  There is a good discussion of this on the fossil forum:


    My only direct experience with dinosaur bones was on a tour of the Gobi desert.  We were told if you licked a rock and it stuck to your lip it was a dinosaur bone, if not it was a stone.  So we spent the afternoon in the desert licking stones.
