This

Diplodocus skeletal mount at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.
is a 12.4" long, caudal (tail) vertebrae of the sauropod dinosaur Diplodocus. It was collected this past spring from our partners quarry in Big Horn County, Wyoming. It comes with a custom metal display stand.

Restoration is pretty minimal compared to most dinosaur material from the Morisson Formation. There is the usual crack repairs and gap fills and some patches of surface restoration, primarily on the back end of the centrum.

One of the best-known sauropods, Diplodocus was a very large long-necked quadrupedal animal, with a long, whip-like tail. It could reach up to 115 feet in length but had a relatively small skull, and a mouth full of small peg-like teeth it
