Thescelosaurus

 

Thescelosaurus sp. "Jonathan"

Large Thescelosaurus jacket Description:

Jonathan, an extremely large Thescelosaurus, is the latest addition to the TPI fossil family. This articulated, very large ornithopod is complete except for the neck, skull and distal tail. The preservation is outstanding and this will make a spectacular addition to your fossil collection. The hand, completely articulated, is one of only two known, the other belonging to “Bert", our tiny Thescelosaurus. The feet are exquisitely preserved showing little or no signs of post-mortem transportation. It was professionally collected and is a superb skeleton. The mounted skeleton will be nearly 13 feet (4.2m) long and 5-6 feet (1.5-1.8m) tall. TPI plans to use 3-D imaging technology with rapid prototyping to recreate the skull and other missing elements of this specimen, which will be based on our other Thescelosaurus skeletons. This specimen will be prepared, restored and mounted in a 3-D pose.
