2" Hadrosaur (Edmontosaurus) Caudal Vertebra - Wyoming

This is a 2" wide caudal vertebra centrum of a hadrosaur (Edmontosaurus annectens) from our partner's lease on the Lance (Creek) Formation in Weston County, Wyoming. The bone preservation is nice, with beautiful orange and black coloration.

There is a repaired crack through the middle of the vertebra, and everything superior to the centrum had broken free prior to collection.

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.
