  1. Hey Folks, My five year old son found this 10lbs slab with shells embedded in it. There are more on the sides. I would say that each shell is about 3 inches long. What is the best way to clean this up? Should I buy a dremel? E & B

    Petrified Wood - Carbonized?

    Hey Folks, We found this hunk this afternoon. Any idea why the piece of wood here in black is carbonized? It comes off when you rub it. Other pieces we found today are definitely fossilized, but this one is different. Any ideas? E & B
  3. I was given this from my grandfather who collected it around Medicine Hat, Alberta. I believe it was likely in the 1920's. I believe it is an ammonite but wondering if you can tell me more.
  4. New member. I did post in an old question too. I’ve been legally collecting surface finds from an area where I know others have collected too. I mostly find small fragments and want to see if anyone else has fragments from the area they don’t want so I can take them to the small schools near me and show to the kids and out of curiosity see if any fit with what I have. I want to note I know the laws about collecting and have met up with some folks from U of A when I’ve found anything for them. It’s just junk stuff I’m wanting. Like to show kids what they are more likely to
  5. Hey guys! My first scientific publication has just been released online by the journal Geological Magazine in association with Cambridge University Press (see link below). My study describes the first probable deinonychosaur tracks from Canada, which my colleagues and I found and documented at a large dinosaur tracksite (about 72.5 million years old) near the city of Grande Prairie in Alberta, Canada. Four traces occur in possible trackway association, while another isolated track that is in exactly the same direction is located nearby on the same bedding plane, suggestive of at least tw

    Need help with ID

    Just wondering if anyone can help with identifying what this is. Found in southern Alberta. Dinosaur Park formation.

    South Ram River Alberta scaphites

    Wonderful trip to the South Ram River in between camping and kayaking. While the rest of the group went to see Ram River Falls I elected to check my favourite spot for any scaphites that may have popped up since my last visit a couple years ago. Lucky day.

    Some New Finds in December

    Was lucky enough to go for a couple hikes just before 2020 ended and I figured I’d show off a few bones I found along the way. This area is now much more covered in snow than it was the day the photo was taken...that was probably the final fossil hunting day until spring at least. Got a hadrosaur claw as well as some more bones from the hand, another partial tyrannosaurid toe bone (that brings me to 4 now) and a couple more ornithomimid toe bones as well. Didn’t get skunked at least!

    My Tyrannosaur research

    Hi I decided to make a post about my main research project right now on Campanian Tyrannosaurs specifically Daspletosaurus. Today I have found something to tell teeth from the Judith River Formation and Dinosaur Park Formation. This could also do with the Tyrannosaurs prey or locality. I found out that Judith River Formation Tyrannosaur teeth serrations are more circular and more round compared to the same time Dinosaur Park Formation Tyrannosaur teeth serrations. The Dinosaur Park Formation Tyrannosaur teeth serrations are more longer skinner and more chiseled like but not like other Tyrannos
  10. I have recently been looking at some of my photos from trips and found photos of when I was in Alberta in 2018. I saw a photo of a Hadrosaur footprint from a trackway in Dinosaur Provincial Park that me and my brother found. I also read not to long ago that no big trackways have been found in this area so I decided to give the information and location to the Palaeontologist at the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, Alberta. I was responded by Dr. Caleb Brown, he told me that I was most likely right and it was probably Hadrosaur. I am currently waiting for him to reply again to see what he thi
  11. This topic is for information purposes of an experience I just encountered when looking at a Tyrannosaurid tooth on an auction site. You often see me request additional locality information when trying to ID a dinosaur tooth. I'm always concerned that the sellers provenance is not specific enough when it comes to material from Montana or Alberta to verify that the Formation provided is correct since it affects identification. Here is a good example of one case that paid off. In this case what was being offered for sale was several listings of Albertosaurus teeth from

    Some teeth

    I found a few different teeth this fall and was wondering if someone can help me identify them. I have an idea for some but I might also be way off. All found in Alberta in the Dinosaur Park Formation. Any info is much appreciated. Hadrosaur?? For this second picture Ray tooth? Found 2’ away from the tooth in second picture. If it is a ray it must have been from an upper layer?? I think Bearpaw Formation above. If not a Ray do you know what? croc scute and teeth?? Not sure about this one??
  13. Hey! I found some crystallized dinosaur bones and wood and was wondering what makes them crystallize, and if that makes them worth more?

    Concretion

    I was walking along the river and found this concretion. I have broke open many others and found nothing. This time there was something inside but I don’t know what. Any ideas? Comes from southern Alberta and what I believe is the Bearpaw Formation. If you look in the last picture where I wet it you can see some layers of Ammolite or shell. Any suggestions for cleaning around this thing without totally destroying it. It is very fragile and flakey inside. Or should it just be left as is. Thanks for any input.

    Can you help ID this fossil

    Can you help identify this fossil. It has shell material on it that is iridescent pink and what looks like suture lines maybe on the surfaces. Found in an area where there is baculite and ammonite nearby. Found one other piece as well. Internally it doesn’t look like any other piece of ammonite I have found before.

    Is There Any Way To Tell...

    ...what type of vertebrae these are? Dinosaur park fm. Both found near the same spot but are shaped quite a bit differently. Sorry I don’t have the tools to properly clean them, all I can really do is remove soft sandstone. I’ll separate them by two different posts. The first one has more of an hourglass shape whereas the second one is sort of hexagonal. #1

    Who’s Toe Bone?

    Found this little guy today. Wondering who it belongs to. Looks almost identical to one of my tyrannosaurid toe bones (pic for comparison) but the tyrannosaurid one is much bigger. e; sorry forgot, Dinosaur park fm
  19. I took a trip out to the scollard formation in Alberta the other day for the first time. I've been hunting in Alberta for years now, but only recently decided to try and branch out from our old hunting grounds. I was unaware that there were T-Rex fossils in our province, but I read through a few old posts on this forum about some massive teeth being pulled out of Alberta so I decided it was worth a shot. I told my dad about it and we decided to drive out on his birthday. I ended up finding a few broken T-Rex teeth, one would have been well over 3 inches. My dad easily had the find
  20. Went fishing this spring and picked up a few pieces along the river. They are from the Bearpaw formation in Alberta. Finally got around to cleaning them up a bit. After finding these I think I spent more time watching for fossils than fishing.

    Tyrannosaur teeth variations

    My son found a long skinny tyrannosaur tooth on South Saskatchewan River, West of Medicine Hat (oldman formation? Formost FM? DPP?) We've found all sorts of tyrannosaur teeth - short fat ones, short wide narrow ones, long fat ones, long narrow ones (Richadoestia), and all sorts of variations of curves or straight Species, age, and tooth position may all be factors. I'm just wondering if anyone has more info? This tooth is relatively narrow and thin for its length. I can post other examples of teeth found in the same area that are quit

    Bite mark on a tyrannosaur tooth?

    Hey guys, I found this tooth that has what looks to be fossilized with a slice from a bite. I'm not sure if that is what it is. Has anyone else ever seen this? It's a first for me.
  23. I found this ...I dont even know how to try and describe it. Any ideas?

    Pachycephalosaur skull cap?

    I found this piece while surface collecting along the red deer river. East of dinosaur provincial park boundary. Its weathered but very sturdy. I've looked at other skull caps and the undersides look different. This doesnt have all the brain case structures so I was hoping for some help on the ID. Thanks

    Lost river coulee

    I found the lost river coulee south of manyberries. I hiked for about 5 hours and it was a great landscape to explore. However, I found next to no vertebrate fossils.
