Bargain, .9" Theropod (Raptor) Caudal Vertebra - Texas
This is a .89" fossil vertebra centrum of an unidentified theropod (raptor) from the Aguja Formation, Brewster County Texas. This is the centrum only. All processes are missing. It is from near the base of the tail. There are a number of theropods from this formation and identifying a genus or species from a single vertebra is very difficult.
This specimen was collected within the past year on private deeded property in Brewster County, Texas. You won't see any other dinosaur material from the Aguja & Javelina Formations for sale because nearly all of the formation lies within the boundaries of a national park or in Mexico which can not be collected. One of our partners was lucky enough to purchase several hundred acres of ranch land in Texas containing a good exposure of these formations and we will be offering more material from the locality in the future.
