Hadrosaur Vertebra with predation marks
One in a kind vertebra from a hadrosaur from the Judith River formation in Montana. It is rare to find big Hadrosaur vertebra as complete as this one and in this high quality. However what is most impressive about this fossil are the very nice and multiple Tyrannosaur bite marks on the central process. In doing so the Tyrannosaur, most probably a Daspletosaurus or a Gorgosaurus, lost the tip of one of his teeth. This tip is still stuck in the bone. An absolute museum quality object.
