    SMALL EINIOSAURUS SKULL
    Einiosaurus procurvicornis
    Upper Cretaceous, Two Medicine Formation
    Montana, USA

    Einiosaurus procurvicornis ("forward curving horn") is a relatively rare ceratopsian Dinosaur, which lived in a diverse ecosystem among other dinosaurs, including Maiasauria. However, Einiosaurus fossils are typically found in single species occurrences leading to the conclusion that these Dinosaurs probably lived in herds. The main distinguishing feature of this unique hadrosaur was its prominent, strongly forward-curving nasal horn, which is reminiscent of a manual can opener. Einiosaurus also had two large horns near the top of the frill. The supraorbital horns were greatly reduced or absent in contrast to the familiar horns of Triceratops. This skull is very complete, measuring 42 inches (106.68 cm) from the tip of the nose to the top of the brow horn and fits securely on a custom metal base. Although the teeth have been worn down considerably on this plant-eater as should be expected, this incredible "mythical" looking skull is in excellent condition. This incredibly unique skull is mounted on a custom metal armature which highlights the unique and "otherworldly" appearance of the specimen. At just over 5 feet (1.5 meters), this Dinosaur will fit most anywhere but is still be impressive enough to dominate its environment even today.
    Overall Measurements: 64 x 32 x 18 inches (163 x 81 x 46 cm)
