33" Fossil Hadrosaur (Lambeosaur) Fibula - Judith River Formation
This is a beautifully preserved, 33" long hadrosaur (Lambeosaur) fibula collected this summer from the Judith River Formation in Montana. The condition of the bone is excellent with just some erosion to the ends. There are a few crack repairs with very minor gap fill restoration. It comes with a custom metal stand (pictured) for display.
The Judith River Formation is one of the most prolific sources of Late Cretaceous vertebrate fossils. At least sixteen Orders containing more than forty Genera are known from the formation. These include fish, amphibians, mammals, and insects in addition to the reptiles, avian and non-avian dinosaurs (birds). Among the more interesting specimens is Leonardo, a mummified and fossilized Brachylophosaurus. This is a Hadrosaur, a duck-billed dinosaur with amazing preservation of the soft tissues of the body. The pattern in the skin of the feet is even preserved. In addition to Leonardo, the Judith River Formation contains the remains of the theropod Hesperornis, the only known freshwater Hespernorthid, a penguin like bird.
