CatRemarks:
The Jaw Element belonging to this specimen will make an excellent educational peice, as the viewer can see the new teeth coming in from the jaw, and how they would have replaced the teeth exposed in the mouth. Additionally, the measured Vertebra displays some scrape marks, most likely tractor damage during bentonite quarrying in the Pembina Hills.
