This mid-caudal vertebra cast replica, though not a large bone, makes a dramatic statement. The deep gash in the side gives a vivid clue to the demise of this duck billed dinosaur. During the Cretaceous Period, in the area we now know as Montana, Gorgosaurus and Albertosaurus were deadly predators. Many varieties of duck billed dinosaurs, including Brachylophosaurus, also inhabited this area. It is not known which of the Tyrannosaurs left their mark on this duck-billed herbivore, only that it did not survive the encounter.
Don't forget to include this small bone with a big story in your collection. Great for predator vs. prey discussions.
Available as an unpainted, unmounted cast suitable for some research or reference purposes. Note: some portions of the original fossil may have been scientifically restored.
