9.8" Sauropod Dinosaur Vertebra With Metal Stand - Wyoming

This is a 9.8" tall, sauropod dinosaur vertebra, collected from the famous Bone Cabin Quarry in Wyoming. This vertebra is well prepared and comes with a spinning, custom metal stand for display. There are several sauropods that come out of the Bone Cabin Quarry which include Diplodocus, Galeamopus, Brontosaurus, Apatosaurus, Camarasaurus, Barosaurus, and Brachiosaurus. Vertebra such as this can be difficult to provide an accurate identification for when found isolated, therefore we have left it as unidentified.

Portions of this vertebra have undergone natural compression over the years within the ground. There is glue stabilization in areas where the bone is thin along the edges of the centrum. Gap fill restoration can be found between repaired cracks where the bone crumbled away, however restoration is quite minimal in comparison to the amount of bone that preserved.

Measurements:
Vertebra - 9.8 x 6.6 x 4.6"
Height on stand - 13.4" tall

The Bone Cabin Quarry has historical significance because it was discovered in 1897 and excavated by the American Museum of Natural History from 1898 through 1905. It lies near the famous Como Bluff and got it's name from a nearby sheepherder's cabin built entirely out of fossil dinosaur bones. This quarry now lies on private land, where it has continued to be excavated.
