The specimen was recovered in a very hard sandstone and much of it was encased in ironstone concretions. Preparation was difficulty but something stood out: The huge number of shed tyrannosaur teeth mixed in with the main specimen. A whopping 52 teeth from various sized tyrannosaurs shed at this site, in addition to several other rooted teeth that are definitely from BCT.

So what does this mean? Well, it's another data point that goes a way to confirm the hypothesis, plus we can show that it happened in other geographic areas and with possibly different species of Daspletosaurus (I'm confident that BCT is NOT Daspletosaurus torosus). Plus, in the end, tyrannosaur teeth are just neat.
