Stegosaurus skull

This cast is rather less than perfect, but it’s quite a bit better than nothing and having it free means it’s easy to manipulate and take some decent photos from multiple angles. It’s always nice to be able to handle things freely like this and see into corners and check out awkward features. This is the first time I’ve really got my hands on a stegosaur skull so while ornithischians do not really feature in my research, it’s good to take a look and learn a few little things.

This cast is from the collections at the National Museum in Ireland and my thanks to them for letting me show it here.

    What we really need are skulls of Dacentrurus, and Wuerhosaurus.

    Is this a cast of USNM 4934 [type specimen of S. stenops]?
