13.3" Hadrosaur (Edmontosaurus) Tibia End - South Dakota

 
 
 
This is a 13.3" long Hadrosaur (Edmontosaurus) tibia end (proximal) from the Hell Creek Formation in South Dakota. This bone is quite compressed and required significant gap fill restoration in spots where the bone had begun to crumble. Most of this restoration and crack repair is around points of articulation.

This tibia end has been mounted with glue to a wood display stand. The base of the wood stand has felt rounds to prevent scratching of the display surface.

Because of its age and sedimentary composition composition, the Hell Creek Formation has become one of the most paleontological studied areas in the world. 158 genera of animals and 64 genera of plants are known from the formation and new discoveries are made frequently. In addition to Tyrannosaurs, Ceratopsids, and hadrosaurs, the formation has yielded remains of amphibians, reptiles, including lizards, snakes and turtles, fish and sharks, avian and non-avian dinosaurs, and mammals. The Hell Creek Formation gives the most complete understanding of the environment just before the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction.
