Edmontosaurus annectens "WXT"

Edmontosaurus skin impressions
Description:

This specimen is an exceptionally large individual, and will measure 35 feet (10.7m) long, and 12 feet (3.66m) high at the hips.

Standing on two legs the head could rise to over 20 feet. Approximately 65-75% of the original skeleton is preserved, sans skull. The skull placed on the mounted specimen would be a composited cast at nearly 4 feet (1.3m) long. Skin impressions have been preserved on some bone and matrix surfaces suggesting this Edmontosaurus was partially mummified.
