Massive Dinosaur Humerus
Barosaurus diplodocidae (new species)
Washakie County, Wyoming
This fossil is a complete uncrushed and beautifully preserved humerus (front leg bone) from a new species of Barosaurus discovered in the Big Horn Basin, Wyoming. The bone is from an adult individual that may have measured more than 85 feet in length. Closely related to the more familiar Diplodocus, Barosaurus was an enormous, long-necked, plant-eating dinosaur. Found only in the western United States, Barosaurus lived approximately 150 million years ago. Barosaurus remains are seldom found in this superfine condition. Handsomely mounted on a black metal stand, which adds to its dramatic visual appeal.
Measures 39 1/2 in x 19 1/2 in. x 6 in.
