Hadrosaurus Ned Gilmore
PHILADELPHIA, (Nov 7, 2002) -- Haddonfield's Hadrosaurus foulkii has been a keystone exhibit at the Academy of Natural Sciences for 134 years. But as Academy vertebrate zoology collections manager Ned Gilmore (above, right) points out, the actual fossilized bones are kept locked away in a fourth-floor specimen vault. The bones on public display are cast replicas of the real ones.
Drawer Drawer 2
A delegation from Haddonfield's HATCH dinosaur sculpture committee got to meet the real Hadrosaurus foulkii yesterday as part of an afternoon Academy ceremony commemorating the work of Edward Drinker Cope. Above, left, Beverly Aldeghi, Don Jackson and Jan Twitchell of HATCH, and Katherine Tassini of the Haddonfield Historical Society, gather around the specimen cabinet containing the historic Hadrosaurus bones.
Drawer 3 Hadro tooth
Dug from a marl pit near Maple Avenue in 1858, these are the bones (above, left) that provided the world with its first comprehensive look at the peculiar anatomy of a dinosaur. One of the smaller Hadrosaurus foulkii teeth is placed next to a watch face (above, right) for size comparison. The portion of the tooth facing the bottom of the picture frame is a flat grinding surface; Hadrosaurs were vegetarians that consumed enormous quantities of plant material each day.
