PART OF A TRICERATOPS LIMB BONE - CRETACEOUS, WYOMING, U.S.A.


Triceratops horridus Marsh 1889.

Mid section of the shaft of a lower leg bone (probably the radius) from a young Triceratops. Heavily mineralised. The end cross section shows the central pulp cavity with large bone cells and the thick nature of the outer walls of the limb bone necessary to support the great weight of the animal. Of interest is a series of impact depressed fractures on one of the outer faces. This could have been an injury during life or post mortem crushing. Nice clean well preserved specimen.

Upper Cretaceous, Late Maastrichtian, Lance Formation
Weston County, Wyoming, U.S.A.

Specimen : 9 x 9 x 4.5 cm.
