This is a 10.2" long Hadrosaur metatarsal (toe bone) from the Hell Creek Formation. It comes from the species Edmontosaurus annectens and is Upper Cretaceous in age, 66 million years old. It was collected this past year from our partners new lease near near Bowman, North Dakota, prepared and comes with a custom metal display stand. There is some minor repair work with gap fills, and some restoration to one end where there had been some erosion.

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.
