DescriptionHUGE TRICERATOPS ARM
Cretaceous, Maastrichtian Stage
Hell Creek Formation, Wibeaux Co, Montana
This massive front arm of the triceratops shows how big these monsters could get. It was found nicely articulated but not until it was excavated was it apparent how large the animal must have been - in comparison to the largest triceratops known, this arm indicates a creature one and a half times bigger! The only restoration performed was the replacement of two metacarpals (finger bones); the humerus, radius and ulna were in perfect alignment, while some of the finger bones were found nearby. The mount is also unique in that it can come apart and each bone can be removed from the armature. The bone quality is superb and displays the beautiful brown patina associated with Hell Creek material. The complete mounted specimen is huge, standing 54 ¼ inches high, and would make a wonderful and unique addition to any collection.
