Thescelosaurus neglectus

Thescelosaurus was a small to medium-sized, bipedal ornithopod living at the end of the reign of dinosaurs. It shares a number of similarities with other small ornithopods like Hypsilophodon, including five-fingered hands and a toothed premaxilla. TPI offers three exceptional skeletons of this rather rare dinosaur, including a young, 1.8 meter (6’) skeleton with one of the best-preserved skulls in existence, a typical adult at 3.25 meters (10’8”), and a much larger-than-average 4.27 meter (14’) skeleton which has the entire costal rib assembly and inter-rib cartilage preserved and reproduced in our cast.
