Hadrosaur Caudal Vertebrae

Recommended Posts

I believe this is a hadrosaur causal vertebrae. From the Cretaceous era KAIPAROWITS FORMATION in Southeast Utah. Can someone confirm or provide a better identification? Thank you in advance for your help.

Sadly no. But it was unidentified so I am trying to track it down as I add it to my collection as part of my effort to build a full skeleton in the living room.

Impossible to narrow down to something more specific than Hadrosauridae Indet.

I wish. I would already have a fully articulated Skelton in my living room.

Does not look like a Hadrosaur caudal vertebra at all to me. Though it does look like an anterior dorsal vertebra of a Hadrosaur. It doesn't look very much like a Ceratopsid vert to me.

Kaiparowits fm. contains both Gryposaurus and Parasaurolophus. So it could be either of those.

 

Very nice piece.

 

Here are some reference images.

 

Parasaurolophus dorsal vertebrae. Both A and B seem to fit fairly well.

Parasaurolophus cervical and caudal vertebrae.

Magnapaulia caudal vertebrae.
