The original fossil Gorgosaurus was discovered and collected by the Linster family from within a Maiasaura bone bed on their property.
The scapula was shattered probably due to a fall. Infection grew in the shattered bone that resulted in 'spongy bone', which caused the scapula to grow more than twice the diameter of its healthy counterpart; a chronic case of osteomyelitis. The infection would have persisted for years and was active until its death.
Available as an unpainted, unmounted cast suitable for scientific research or reference purposes. Note: some portions of the original fossil may have been scientifically restored.
