Fossilized Triceratops Bone Fragment
Collected from the private ranch Hell Creek Formation in South Dakota.
Triceratops is the most familiar genus of the Ceratopsidae, a family of large, mostly North American horned dinosaurs. Triceratops was traditionally placed within the "short-frilled" ceratopsids, but modern cladistic studies show it to be a member of the Chasmosaurinae which usually have long frills.
The photos are representative of one (1) randomly chosen fossil you will receive. Each fossilized bone fragment is nicely packaged with an informational insert.
This is an authentic Triceratops Bone Fragment.
Please be aware of the nature of fossils:
Being buried under the ground for millions of years under tons of pressure tends to be rough. No fossil comes out of the ground whole and perfect. Most fossils have undergone some restoration, while others are altered by man simply to enhance their presentation in different ways. The workers do a very professional job, unearthing and preserving these natural treasures, however, commonly natural cracks are visible on the surface. These are part of the natural beauty of the fossil and not considered defects.
