5" Fossil Hadrosaur Phalange (Toe Bone) - Montana

 
 
 
 
This is a 5" wide Hadrosaur phalange (toe bone) that was collected from the Two Medicine Formation of Montana. It was collected this spring. There is a repaired crack with some minor gap fill along the distal/right edge of this bone. The most significant restoration is through the middle of this bone where it was found broken in half and heavily weathered/crumbled.

It sits nicely on the provided custom metal display stand.

Hypacrosaurus is a very large, Lambeosaurini Hadrsosaur that would have been almost as large as the Tyrannosaurs that it lived alongside. Like Corythosaurus, it had a tall, hollow rounded crest, although not as large and straight. It is known from the remains of two species that spanned 75 to 67 million years ago, in the Late Cretaceous of Alberta, Canada, and Montana, United States, and is the latest hollow-crested duckbill known from good remains in North America. It is estimated to have been around 9.1 meters (30 feet) long and to have weighed up to 4-5 tons.
