Item details




Polyurethane Resin, Steel



Height: 10.5 Inches; Width: 3 Inches; Depth: 6 Inches


Harpactognathus gentryii is a 155-million-year-old ramphorynchid pterosaur from the Late Jurassic. The name Harpactognathus is from the Greek word harpact meaning to grasp and gnathus meaning jaw; or grasping jaw. This name highlights the splayed arrangement of the teeth, commonly associated with a diet of fish. The skull was reconstructed based on bones excavated from the Bone Cabin Quarry of southeastern Wyoming. This skull of Harpactognathus gentryii was casted from the type specimen that was originally identified and named by Carpenter et al. in 2003.

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: 10.5”x3”x6” 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.
