Very Rare 11.2" Stegosaurus Vertebra - Wyoming

 
 
 
 
 
Stegosaurus is a relatively rare dinosaur, and any Stegosaurus material is very tough to find. This is 11.2" (15" high on stand) tall Stegosaurus vertebrae from a private quarry in Big Horn County, Wyoming.

It is complete and comes with a custom, metal display stand. You simply won't ever see much Stegosaurus material for sale, because despite it's wide recognition in popular culture it is one of the rarer animals in the Morrison Formation.

Like nearly all bones from the Morrison Formation there is repair and some restoration, particularly on the process.

Stegosaurus is one of the most recognizable dinosaurs in the world due to it's distinctive tail spikes and plates along it's back. There are so far 3 described species from the Upper Morrison Formation and it's been in the news quite a bit lately due to "Sophie" the Stegosaurus at the London Natural History Museum. Stegosaurus is the state fossil of Colorado.
