Lot Details
Exceptional, Large Triceratops Brow Horn
Triceratops horridus
Cretaceous
Hell Creek Formation, South Dakota

This is one of the largest Triceratops horns ever offered at auction. Perhaps the quintessential feature of the Triceratops genus is its brow horn. The present specimen is a magnificent and covetable example, which includes the orbit of the eye and the proximal portion of the frill – amazing distinctions for a specimen of this kind. Triceratops is unquestionably one of the most popular dinosaurs known. It lived at the end of the Cretaceous, 65 million years ago, in vast herds which were thought to have fed near the shorelines of the intracontinental seaway which isolated the western half of North America from the rest of the continent. Offered on a custom stand.
Measures 38 x 24 in.
