5.5" Hadrosaur (Edmontosaurus) Phalanx - Wyoming

This is a 5.5" long, proximal phalanx (toe) bone of a hadrosaur (Edmontosaurus annectens), collected from our partner's lease on the Lance (Creek) Formation in Niobrara County, Wyoming.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.

The bone is partially unprepped. Most of the rock has been removed, however there is a section of rock left on the superior half of the phalanx. A repaired crack can be found going through the bone. A partially exposed ossified tendon can be found along one edge of the remaining rock.

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.
