7.3" Hadrosaur (Edmontosaurus) Anterior Caudal Vertebra - Wyoming

This is a nice, 7.3" tall, anterior caudal vertebra of a hadrosaur (Edmontosaurus annectens), collected from our partner's lease on the Lance (Creek) Formation in Niobrara County, Wyoming. Overall, this vertebra is in good condition with minimal repair.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.

The centrum is weathered along its edges, however it hasn't undergone any repair. There is a repaired crack at the base of the right transverse process and additional repaired cracks through the vertebral arch. The majority of each process and the left prezygapophysis were all missing upon 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.
