Item details

Stegosaurus was one of the earliest dinosaur finds during the infamous Cope and Marsh Bone Wars. The first Stegosaurus fossils were discovered in 1876 in the Morrison Formation of Colorado by M.P. Felch and were named by Marsh in 1877. The name Stegosaurus means roof lizard, a name that goes back to when Marsh first described the animal thinking that the plates laid flat along its back, creating a roof. It wasn't until Marsh discovered another example of Stegosaurus with the plates still in situ (in place) that he realized his mistake. About 80 specimens of Stegosaurus have since been discovered in the Late Jurassic Morrison Formation, stretching from Colorado to 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 the fine details found in the original specimen.

Display size: 14”x7”x12” 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.
