"Willard" - Authentic, Huge Triceratops Skeleton

Inventory quantity available: 1

We are excited to present "Willard" - an extremely unique triceratops, quite possibly a new species of Ceratopsian. Willard would soar two feet taller (at the hip) than other large Triceratops specimens (for example, compared to the cast specimen at the Barnes County Museum). With his immense size and unique nose horn, he is in a category of his own.

Willard is being sold "as is" - We can, however, discuss the preparation and mounting of the skeleton (which is a significant project). 

Willard was found in Bowman County, North Dakota, USA.

18 out of 24 of the largest bones present. Approximately 45% complete by mass.
