    Strange Dino Bone

    Struggling to figure out what this might be. Apologies for hands in the photo again but this thing definitely won’t stand by itself. Might just be an unidentifiable chunkosaurus but the weird texture at the top made me curious if it’s skull material of some kind
  2. Hello! New user here... My boyfriend and I have been doing some exploring around the badlands here in Alberta, and lately we've been mostly wandering around north of Tolman. We've found a few cool fossils, but we're both having a hard time putting all our research into practice. Trying to learn the different formations and identifying the coal seams, but not having much luck. I've read some of the documents that describe the scollard formation, but when I'm climbing the hills I honestly have no idea what I'm looking at. Is there anyone in Alberta that frequents these areas that can offer

    Toe bone? Near Drumheller AB

    Hello all. New here, but hoping maybe someone could help confirm if my guesses are correct or if I'm way off. I found this south east of Drumheller, AB around the Red Deer river. From my Googling efforts, I'm thinking this might be a toe bone from an ornithomimid? I believe ornithomimus and struthiomimus are both found in this area, so this is my best guess. Sorry, my cell phone camera quality isn't the greatest. I could also be way off, and maybe this isn't even a dinosaur at all haha. Thanks in advance!
  4. My wife and I went out for our third fossil hunting expedition and landed on what I would consider to be our first big find. We went camping up near Ram Falls, in Alberta Canada. I previously read on this handy website that others had found ammonites in the area, specifically scaphite depressus, an low and behold, we found one too! I can't described how pumped I was to hold that thing in my hand. What a great feeling. Anyway, we also found a fair amount of other coral looking thingys, and I would really appreciate some help IDing them. Here they are: I am thinking that these thre

    What is it?

    Any idea? Found in the North Saskatchewan River (Alberta)
  6. i.amsherlocked

    Rib bone, but what from?

    Found in the North Saskatchewan River (Alberta). I've received some guesses that it could be equine or bovine, do you agree? It's also definitely fossilized so cant be too modern.
  7. brookearchaeo

    Is this a fragment of bone?

    I'm not expecting anyone to identify this as such, just wanted to know if it's actually a fragment of fossilised bone since this was my first time fossil hunting (and it was the only thing we found xd). Found it in horseshoe canyon near Calgary, Alberta (yeah I know fossil collecting is extremely strict there, as far as I can tell we followed all the rules), specifically in this white sandy section I've attached a pic of. It didn't look like any of the other stones around and the holey-porous structure of it seems very bone like. (Sorry all I could find for scale is a magic card...)

    Coral fossil with worm?

    First I apologize I’m just a rock collector, or was in the 60’s and 70’s. I dug out the box of rocks to photograph the art in the rocks. I would love to know if this is coral and if that circled image is a worm and really any information I can include for my grandchildren. thanks so much GP

    Two Medicine Formation find! Help???

    Could really use help identifying this piece! Found in two medicine formation in southern alberta. Size is 2 inches x 2 inches and 1.5 inches high. It’s quite solid and is coolish to the touch, not at all chalky. thanks for any feedback at all.

    Vertebrae? Jaw?!? I have no ideas.

    Hello there, I found this fossil (seems like a bone fragment for sure) in a coulee slide after a rain storm in Southern Alberta. Precisely, I was camping at Dinosaur Provincial Park and it was along a hiking trail. It measures approximately 6.35 cms length x 4.44 cms wide and 2.54 cms tall.
  11. Ryan.C

    Don't know what I found.

    Found this fossil on the bank of the Bow River just below the Bassano Dam in Alberta while I was fishing. Pretty sure is is a fossil but not sure what from. Let me know of any more info is needed.
  12. Found this at a fossil selling website. Hadrosaur vertebra. Info: Hadrosaurus Upper Cretaceous (Campanian) 83-72 myo Alberta, Canada.

    Possible to ID?

    Found this bone along the Bow River in Alberta. Would probably be from either the Bearpaw or Dinosaur Park Formation. Seems to be partially mineralized. Is it possible to ID the type of bone and possibly the animal it came from? To me it looks like a vertebra.

    Fossil id request

    Found this two days ago in the Alberta Rockies in a scree slope. Was hoping someone could help me identify it. My first thought was a very worn out trilobite, but I base that on almost no information and experience lol. Appreciate everyone to takes the time to look at this post, thanks!

    Was on a fossil hunt the passed 2 days and don't know what this pointed shelled fossil might be.

    Fossil ID request

    Hi, I have a bunch of rocks from all around Alberta, and would really appreciate some help identifying them. I don’t have too much confidence that these are in fact fossils, and am sure most of them will turn out to be oddly shaped rocks. Thank you to everyone to takes the time to look at this post to help me figure this out! These are the “fossils” from my most recent outing with the location written above corresponding images. 1. I found this near the top of the tree line on Longview mountain beside a small steep canyon carved by a stream of meltwater coming down the m

    Help with fossil ID

    Just wondering if anyone recognizes this. I am pretty sure it is a fossil but not sure if it is corral or bone or something different. I don’t have any pics with a tape measure on my phone but can get some tomorrow if it would help. It is roughly the size of my palm. Found in Southern Alberta in an area that has other Bearpaw formation fossils. However I have found other marine fossils here that are clearly not from the Bearpaw formation and are thought to have been brought from further west possibly by glaciers. I also found a rugose corral in the same area. It is concave in the middle
  18. Hi all, I'm heading out into the badlands in September and I thought I might try my luck along the Scollard Formation. I've found some good resources online but it seems Scollard is much less described than the nearby Dinosaur Park and Horseshoe Canyon formations. I'm wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of further resources or offer some personal experience with hunting along the Scollard formation. At the moment my strategy is to start in Dry Island Buffalo Jump and work my way north, but I'm not sure I can sufficiently distinguish Scollard from nearby layers. Any thoughts would
  19. While hiking in the Central Alberta Badlands Near Toleman in Red Deer River Valley came across two pieces of fossilized matter that looked very different than most of the bone fragments I have encountered while on similar outings. If I was to take a wild & uneducated guess I would say they look like they could be osteoderms? Any help to ID these strange pieces would be greatly appreciated. Thank you In advance.

    Strange textured rock

    Hi All, First post for me. Excited to participate! I have recently taken up fossil hunting in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada's river valley creek beds. I have found several fossilized bone fragments, petrified wood fragments and even a few first nations artifacts. All of these have been found on small creek bed shelves during low water. The geological time period is mesozoic. The first object I would appreciate any feedback on is an irregularly textured flat rock or potentially a fossil of some kind. It was found loose on the surface next to the water. It has an
  21. Found lots of teeth today, here’s some I need a little help with as I’ve never found these before. I think one is a troodontid, one is maybe dromaeosaur, and the other I have no idea. (Apologies for the quality, my phone isn’t good macro photography) Dinosaur Park Fm

    Cretaceous Jaw Fragment? Please Help ID

    Found this fossil while surface collecting in the Alberta Badlands (Canada) North Of Drumheller in the Red Deer river valley. Looking for some help to ID this unusual looking fossil. If I had to guess I'd say it looks like a possible jaw fragment? Any help to ID would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  23. Hello Everyone I recently came across three interesting bone fragments while hiking near the Red Deer River North of Drumheller ( Alberta, Canada). The one bone fragment has a perfectly round symmetrical hole right through it, & the second & third fragment appears to have little pock marks or indentations on it (reminds me a bit of the whisker pocks a dog has on its face) . Anyways I am just a hobbyist however the fragments with the pocked marks I'm going to guess is part of the jaw or maybe somewhere near the mouth? Any help to help ID or any additional information of any kind would b
