14.2" Kritosaurus Metatarsal On Stand - Aguja Formation, Texas

 
 
 

This

Artist reconstruction of Kritosaurus
is a huge, 14.2" long metatarsal (toe bone) of Kritosaurus navajovius. Kritosaurus is believed to be one of the largest genus of Hadrosaur, though little is known about it. Given the size of the toe bone it would have been a very large, adult animal.

The bone is very solid and the only restoration is some surface restoration on both ends where some erosion had ocurred.

This specimen was collected within the past year on private deeded property in Brewster County, Texas. You won't see any other dinosaur material from the Aguja Formation for sale because nearly all of the formation lies the borders of a national park or in Mexico which can not be collected. One of our partners was lucky enough to purchase several hundred acres of ranch land in Texas containing a good exposure of these formations and we will be offering more material from the locality in the future. The formation is the equivalent of the Judith River Formation in the Northern US/Canada.
