A LARGE, Top Quality Denversaurus schlessmani osteoderm (bony armor plate) from the late Cretaceous of northern North America. Denversaurus schlessmani was the Nodosaur which grew to 20 feet and 6000 pounds, and a body covered with this heavy bony armor. Nodosaur armor plates are thicker than the Ankylosaur plates. A near complete body osteoderm plate from an adult Denversaurus with excellent surface articulation. The bone is excellent quality with excellent color / patina. No cracks or restoration. Legally collected on private land in the Lance Creek Fm., Niobrara Co., Wyoming. Authenticity guaranteed. An excellent collector's quality Nodosaur osteoderm. I do not see large top quality ostederms very often.
