11" Dinosaur (Diplodocus) Caudal Vertebrae - Metal Stand

 
 
 
 
 
This is a very nice, 11" long, caudal (tail) vertebrae from a Diplodocus collected this past summer from our partner companies private quarry east of Dinosaur, Colorado. It comes with a custom made metal stand making it a very displayable piece.

The vertebrae was found and prepared from hard sandstone rather than softer matrix so it has very nice preservation with no crushing. The ends of the process has been restored as well as some crack fill in the centrum.

One of the best-known sauropods, Diplodocus was a very large long-necked quadrupedal animal, with a long, whip-like tail. It could reach up to 115 feet in length but had a relatively small skull, and a mouth full of small peg-like teeth it.
