Artist reconstruction of Kritosaurus
is a 3.4" tall Hadrosaur vertebra of the genus Kritosaurus, from the Aguja Formation of Texas. It was a surface find, explaining the breakage and slight deformation. A small portion of the superior-most process remained intact, which is definitely worth noting. There is some glue stabilizations along the inferior portion of this vertebra and within some cracks. Despite the crack stabilization, the vertebra is fairly sturdy

Very little work has been done on the formation, so it's impossible truly label it to a species level, though most Hadrosaur material from this formation has typically been consider Kritosaurus in the past.

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 & Javelina Formations 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.
