There's been some evidence of T rex and other big bitey-eatey-chewie-a-saurs 
leaving teeth 
stuck in prey that got away, but the teeth being left in the wounds seems to 
have the 
wound heal rather naturally around it, and if the teeth were themselves bearers 
of infectous 
deseases or venom, well, wouldn't that NOT be the case?
