A Top Quality, Triceratops horridus brow horn from the late Cretaceous of northern North America. A May 2022 Fossil of the Month. Triceratops was a large ceratopsian dinosaur found in the Hell Creek Fformation. This is a special horn with exceptional detail preserved and excellent color & patina. Great surface articualtion. You can see all of the natural blood grooves around the surface of the horn. Plus you see a gouge wound in the horn which appears to be a battle wound. Very cool. The preparation of the horn was fairly basic and simple - some cracks filled. This is very minimal restoration for a horn. It comes with a custom stand as shown. A fantastic fossil overall. Legally collected on private land in the Hell Creek Fm., Garfield Co., Montana. Authenticity guaranteed. Certification of Authentication provided. Museum quality. A fantastic Triceratops brow horn display. You don't see these top quality horns very often! A great display size. Note - International buyers will incur some shipping cost.
