DescriptionLARGE DINOSAUR TAIL
Cretaceous, Maastrichtian Stage
Two Medicine Formation, Bynum, Montana
This dinosaur tail was from the obscure duckbilled hadrosaur, Hypacrosaurus. It was found fully articulated but unfortunately missing the hemal arches or chevrons. All the caudals and processes are present, undistorted and the bone quality is superb. There are 60 caudal vertebrae present including the very tip of the tail and each was meticulously prepared to retain the excellent detail. Usually dinosaur tails are not found isolated like this but oddly no other dinosaurian was discovered anywhere nearby. An unusual find, it measures 85 ½ inches in length when assembled on its custom display mount.
Estimate: $14,000 - $18,000.
