Pachycephalosaurus wyomingensis Skeleton cast replica

Pachycephalosaurus wyomingensis Skeleton cast replica.

This beautiful dinosaur measures: 9ft 1 (2.75m l)

Molded from original fossils discovered in Late Cretaceous, Harding County, SD.

This is one of the most exciting dinosaur casts to come along in years! Our complete skull and skeleton casts are based on 1994 discoveries of the first associated post-cranial material along with the second skull ever found.

Preserved post-cranial material dictates a horizontal alignment of the dorsal vertebrae with a strong U-curve to the cervicals.

This specimen and the site is being studied by an international interdisciplinary geological-paleontological team.

Skeleton cast replica: $39,000

Research set: $7,995

Qty

Highlights of the skull include the first jaw ever found, which has small spikes on the postero-lateral edge! Large spikes at the rear of the skull suggest a close relationship with Stygimoloch, plus new material from the snout area is preserved, changing the shape of the restored premaxilla.

Prenocephale prenes
Prenocephale prenes

Classification: Pachycephalosauria; Pachycephalosauridae

Pachycephalosauridae and Homocephalidae Prenocephale prenes and Homalocephale calathocercos are both pachycephalosaurids, literally 'thickheads'. The top of their skulls were 8 to 10 centimetres thick, solid bone apparently protecting a walnut-sized brain. This thickening of the skull has been interpreted as allowing these animals to act like the living mountain sheep in which the males compete for females by holding head-butting contests.

In addition to the domed heads other indications that these dinosaurs head butted can be seen in the stiff spinal column, thus giving it strength for the forces applied when contact occurred, and the angle of articulation of the skull and the neck vertebrae-which puts the head in just the right position to make butting safe and not a back-breaking exercise.

These dinosaurs have very small teeth with serrated crowns, ideal for shredding plant material.

Pachycephalosaurids may have had a lifestyle very like that of modern sheep and goats and even may have moved about in small herds.

Stygimoloch (meaning "horned devil from the river of death") is a genus of pachycephalosaurid dinosaur from the Cretaceous. Stygimoloch is currently known from the Hell Creek Formation and Lance Formation of the Western Interior (United States), where it lived alongside Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops. The type species is Stygimoloch spinifer.

Pachycephalosauria (pronounced _) Greek for "thick headed lizards") is a clade of ornithischian dinosaurs. Well-known genera include Pachycephalosaurus, Stegoceras, Stygimoloch, and Dracorex. Most lived during the Late Cretaceous Period, in what is now North America and Asia. They were all bipedal, herbivorous/omnivorous animals with thick skulls. In some species the skull roof is domed and several inches thick; in others it is flat or wedge-shaped. The dome may be surrounded by nodes (for instance, Pachycephalosaurus), spikes (Stygimoloch), or both (Dracorex).

Candidates for the earliest known pachycephalosaur include Ferganocephale adenticulatum from the Middle Jurassic Period of what is now Kyrgyzstan and Stenopelix valdensis from the Early Cretaceous Period of what is now Germany, although Sullivan doubted that either of these species are pachycephalosaurs.

The function of the thickened skull roof has been heavily debated. It has been frequently asserted that individuals may have rammed each other head-on, as do modern-day mountain goats and musk oxen. It is also suggested that pachycephalosaurs could make their head, neck, and body horizontally straight, in order to transmit stress during ramming. However, in no known dinosaur can the head, neck, and body be oriented in such a position. Instead, the cervical and anterior dorsal vertebrae of pachycephalosaurs show that the neck was carried in an "S"- or "U"-shaped curve. (Carpenter, Kenneth (1997). "Agonistic behavior in pachycephalosaurs (Ornithischia:Dinosauria): a new look at head-butting behavior" (pdf). Contributions to Geology 32 (1): 1925.)

Also, the rounded shape of the skull would lessen the contacted surface area during head-butting, resulting in glancing blows. Other possibilities include flank-butting, defense against predators, or both. The relatively wide width of pachycephalosaurs (which would protect vital internal organs from harm during flank-butting) and the squamosal horns of the Stygimoloch (which would have been used to great effect during flank-butting) add credence to the former.
