10.1" Juvenile Hadrosaur (Edmontosaurus) Tibia - Montana

This is a 10.1" long, fossil tibia of a Hadrosaur (Edmontosaurus annectens) more commonly referred to as a Duckbilled dinosaur. Given its size it would have come from a juvenile. It was collected from a private quarry in Powder River County, Montana.

There are several repaired cracks in the bone with gap fill restoration in the cracks as well as a piece missing on one end.

Hadrosaurs are frequently referred to as duck-billed dinosaurs and are members of the Ornithischian family Hadrosauridae. They were fairly common herbivores which roamed Asia, Europe, and North America during the Upper Cretaceous Period. Many species of Hadrosaurs had distinctive crests on their heads, some of which had air-filled chambers that may have produced a distinct sound. These crests may have been used for both audio and visual display purposes.
