5.6" Large Hadrosaur (Edmontosaurus) Phalanx - Wyoming

This is a massive, 5.6" 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. This is by far the largest hadrosaur phalanx bone that we've ever had available!

Comes with an acrylic display stand.

There are spots of restoration to the proximal and distal points of articulation, with most of the restoration at the proximal end. There is some gap fill restoration on the ventral side of the bone where the bone fragmented.

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.
