(1 customer review)

$4,800.00

A superb specimen of a feathered dinosaur archaeopteryx. The contorted posture is so common in dinosaur fossils that it has its own name: opisthotonus, from the Greek “tonos,” meaning tightening, and “opistho,” behind. Some theorized that water currents moved the bones into formation, or that the muscle contractions of rigor mortis pulled the head backward.
