7" Hadrosaur (Edmontosaurus) Caudal Vertebra - Wyoming

This is a 7" tall caudal vertebra of a hadrosaur (Edmontosaurus annectens) from our partner's lease on the Lance (Creek) Formation in Weston County, Wyoming. The bone preservation is nice, with beautiful orang-brown coloration.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.

There are multiple repaired cracks through this specimen, with spots of gap fill restoration. The repairs can be found through the centrum, pedicles, prezygapophyses, and spinous process. There is gap fill restoration in spots through the spinous process, with the majority of the restoration through where the postzygapophyses would be.

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.
