Goniopholis sp. - Crocodyliform Skull Replica

Item details




Polyurethane Resin, Steel



Height: 21 Inches; Width: 9 Inches; Depth: 10 Inches


Goniopholis is an extinct crocodyliform that is mainly known from Europe and Africa, from the Late Jurassic to the Early Cretaceous. The structure of the skull is very similar to modern day American alligators or the Nile crocodile, although they are not directly related. The phylogeny of Goniopholis is currently under discussion with many of the individuals formerly attributed to Goniopholis really representing unique genera, however no consensus has been reached. This specimen is molded from a skull that had been excavated from the Late Jurassic Morrison Formation at the Bone Cabin Quarry of southeastern Wyoming.

This is a museum quality cast replica made with a durable polyurethane resin. It was molded directly from the original restored skull, not a 3D printed skull or a sculpture. The resin cast is made on demand and is produced using methods that preserve all of the fine details found in the original specimen.

Display size: 21”x9”x10” as displayed with mouth open, not including the display stand. Variations on the color of the skull and the mount (i.e. wall mount) are possible.
