Giant, 21" Edmontosaurus Dorsal Vertebra With Stand - North Dakota

This is a giant, 21" tall dorsal vertebra of a duck billed dinosaur (Edmontosaurus annectens) from Bowman, North Dakota. It was collected within the last year from our partners lease, and just recently prepared. The process is more or less intact with the expected crack fill restoration and the end of the spine top has been restored. This piece looks quite spectacular on it's custom made, metal display stand.

We have two other similar vertebrae from the same animal also available.

Hadrosaurs are frequently referred to as duck-billed dinosaurs and are members of the Ornithischian family Hadrosauridae. They were fairly common herbivores that 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.

Because of its age and sedimentary composition, the Hell Creek Formation has become one of the most paleontologically studied areas in the world. 158 genera of animals and 64 genera of plants are known from the formation and new discoveries are made frequently. In addition to Tyrannosaurs, Ceratopsids, and Hadrosaurs, the formation has yielded remains of amphibians, reptiles, lizards, snakes and turtles, fish and sharks, avian and non-avian dinosaurs, and mammals. The Hell Creek Formation gives the most complete understanding of the environment just before the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction.
