DescriptionMASSIVE DINOSAUR VERTEBRA
Hell Creek Formation, South Dakota
Undoubtedly one of the most well-known and popular dinosaurs, the Triceratops was a herbivore that roamed in herds across North America in the final phase of the dinosaurs' existence, just prior to the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event 65 million years ago. This cervical vertebra is a massive specimen, indicating a creature of close to their estimated maximum size of 30 feet in length. Comprising spinal and two transverse processes (one reconstructed), neural arch and large round centrum it bears a warm woody coloring and measures 23 ¼ inches long, standing 21 3/8 inches high on a custom metal display stand.
