Abstract

The present 3D Dataset contains the 3D model of the skin of Allosaurus described in Hendrickx, C. et al. in press. Morphology and distribution of scales, dermal ossifications, and other non-feather integumentary structures in non-avialan theropod dinosaurs. Biological Reviews. 

Specimens and 3D Data

Allosaurus jimmadseni UMNH VP C481 View specimen

M3#902_UMNH VP C481

The material consists of a 3D reconstruction of the counterpart of a 30 cm2 patch of skin impression associated with the anterior dorsal ribs/pectoral region of the specimen of Allosaurus jimmadseni UMNH VP C481. The skin shows a semi-uniform basement of 1-2 mm diameter pebbles with a smaller number of slightly larger (up to 3 mm) ovoid scales. The irregular shape, distribution, and overall small size of these larger scales suggest that they are not classifiable as feature scales but rather as variations in the basement scales.
