Interesting things about it:

Size: 39 long, 16 in. wide, 20 In tall.

T-Rex bites and gashes on lower jaws and top of skull,
even into its eye socket!

Hadrosaurs were plant eaters.
This animal with its teeth and complex skull show that animals of the past were not “simple” and “primitive.” Looking at this huge incredible animal, any idea that animals are getting bigger and more complex seems ridiculous.
It is a marvelous wonder of God’s Creation.


 

In 2006 Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum completed it’s restoration of the original Hadrosaur skull for Steve Hendrickson.  This skull (shown at right and below) was placed for sale with Heritage Auction Galleries and on January 20, 2008 it sold for a floor bid of $80,000 plus the buyer’s premium raising the final price to $96,350 for this excellent specimen.
