3.2" Ankylosaur Scute In Matrix - Aguja Formation, Texas

This is a rare find from the Aguja Formation in West Texas. It's a 3.1" long scute (armor plate) of an undescribed Ankylosaur. Ankylosaur fossils are rare, but this is even more so because so little dinosaur material has been collected from the Cretaceous of Texas. The formation it comes from would be the equivalent of the Judith River Formation in the Northern US and Alberta.

The scute has been prepared still partially embedded in the sandstone it was found in. There is one repaired crack running through the piece.

This specimen was collected within the past year on private deeded property in Brewster County, Texas. You won't see any other dinosaur material from the Aguja Formations for sale because nearly all of the formation lies the borders of a national park or in Mexico which can not be collected. One of our partners was lucky enough to purchase several hundred acres of ranch land in Texas containing a good exposure of these formations and we will be offering more material from the locality in the future.
