Edmontosaurus Metatarsal (Toe Bone) - 9.2"

 
 
 
 
This is a large, 9.2" long Metatarsal (toe bone) of a Edmontosaurus annectens from the Hell Creek Formation in Montana. The bone (like most dinosaur bones) was found in many pieces and had to be reassembled. There is a few areas where some gaps were filled in but the results of nice considering the state the bone would have been in when preparation began.

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 hardrosaurs had distinct crests on their head, some of which had air filed chambers that may have produced a distinct sound. These crests may have been used for both audio and visual display purposes.
