    Interesting fossil found in Drumheller

    Hello everyone This bone is from Alberta. The horseshoe canyon formation. This bone intrigued me because of the interesting way the pores are in the bone. From one side, you can see the pores go until right before the surface. On another side, there are patterns that seem to be like rings. Maybe they are just compressed pores? Any suggestions for what this is are welcome

    Strange bits of bone

    Last summer, we found these bits of bone, and I have been trying to id them. They were found in the Drumheller area, in the horseshoe canyon formation. The reason I was curious about them is because of how thin they were. They also have some really weird patterns on its surface. Below the surface is jet black. Also, there is a very tiny amount of marrow(that’s what I think it is at least). Any input on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Joy.

    Hi all, Wondering if this checks out as Albertosaurus. From the Horseshoe Canyon formation in Drumheller, Alberta, Canada CH: 33.1mm CBL: 16.1mm CBW: 10.5mm Mesial Serration Density: 4/mm Distal Serration Density: 3/mm

    Unknown Bone

    I found this bone in a creek in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I have asked some hunters and farmers what it could be but nobody seems to know. It appears old but modern. There looks to be a suture mark or perhaps an old fracture or some pathology. I would appreciate any insight into what bone this may be. Or where I might look to find something to compare? Thank you.
  5. Dino Dad 81


    Hello again--thanks so much for all the help lately! Is it likely that this is from Albertosaurus and not another tyrannosaurid if all we know about it is that it's from Alberta, CA? What additional info is needed to make such a call?
  6. Another piece found in the badlands of Alberta. Could it be a cactus ? Or just a interesting looking concretion? Any help identifying much appreciated. Thanks !
  7. Found in Alberta, Canada. Any help identifying would be much appreciated. Thank you !
  8. My son was looking through the things we found this summer, and we found these pieces of similar colour and texture. There are three of these pieces in total, and they all have these white markings on the side that seems blue. We think this is bone, but we are beginners and don’t have enough experience to say for sure. If I took a wild guess, I’d say they are pieces of tooth? It seems there is a shiny surface which might be enamel on both side of it, and it is kind of dense. These were found in the Drumheller area.
  9. Has anyone in this group even been up this far north in Alberta? I have an idea of location and will report back after my journey.

    Hadrosaurid tooth ID

    Haven’t found a hadro tooth quite like this one, with serration type things on the end of it. Wondering if this is because it’s from a particular part of one of the jaws or if it’s a specific hadrosaur species that has this texture. Dino park fm

    Weird Dinosaur Vertebrae?

    Was going through some bags of fossils I found sometime ago in the Morrin Bridge area of Alberta. There were a couple turtle shell fragments, a tip of a dino claw, a hadrosaur tooth and a ray tooth. There was also this weird vertebrae. While it looks like a dino vert. it is only 1 cm in thickness. The dimensions of the vert. are approx. 2 cm x 2 cm x 1cm. I have found lots of dino vert before but the thickness compared to the rest of the vert. don't make sense. Also both sides appear concave, almost like a fish vert. but not as deep. The photos are not the best and, while the condition
  12. Hello, I made this find in the Alberta badlands yesterday, the area is known to have tons of hadrosaur bones, so i assume thats what i have. unfortunately, i was not prepared to extract the bone without completely destroying it, so i plan on going back to get it some time this week. I collected many bone fragments from the area, and have noted down the location. I will post decent pictures once and if i am able to bring the fossil home, i seem to have forgotten to take proper pictures in my excitement! I would also like to ask for advice on how to extract this fossil. I plan on pur

    Small Reptile Bone? What is it?

    Going through my fossils collected over the years and found this small complete bone. It was found in the Morrin Bridge area, Red Deer Badlands. It is a beautiful little bone but I have no idea what if belongs to. Would be Cretaceous age. Found it in the same layer within five feet or so of some carnivore dinosaur teeth, a few hadrosaur teeth, etc. I think it was an area where the bones, teeth, etc. were washed into originally and then fossilized. The bone is 2 1/4 inches or 5.7 cm in length. Any ideas?

    Theropod Bone

    Can’t figure this one out. Maybe a limb bone but definitely theropod. Dinosaur park formation
  15. Hi all, observed a few fossils in Horsethief Canyon on a hike the other day, not sure what they are. One looks like a long bone, and the other maybe a squished skull with some other bones mashed in? Using my technically advanced shoe as a reference, long bone was maybe 25cm long, 10cm at widest, "skull" was maybe 25cm across at widest point. I know its hard to tell, but I'm new so not sure what layer I was in, but my watch said ~730m elevation if that means anything to anyone for the locality. A couple photos of two fossilized stumps and a shot of the Canyon for a bonus. Was a super fun day hi

    Dinosaur Vert

    Another ID, wondering if this is Hadrosaurid or ceratopsian. Thanks again!

    Strange pattern on a fossil

    We went for a fossil hunting trip yesterday in the Drumheller area. We found a few decent bones. On one of the bones, there was this strange pattern of white streaks. It looks almost like lighting. It even makes a full circle at one point. When I cleaned the bone, I noticed that the pattern disappeared with water, but once it dries, the pattern reappears. This is one of the strangest things we have ever found. ( keep in mind we are beginners and we haven’t found much). If anyone knows what this is, any explanation is welcome. Thanks, Joy
  19. Hi Me and my son are new users here and are looking for places to fossil hunt in Alberta. We came across some posts of fossil hunting trips near a place called Lucky Strike, Alberta. We are trying to pinpoint the location of the site so we can plan for a trip there. However, we are having some trouble figuring out its location. Any help on where the site is will help immensely, and if you want to give us more specific information, feel free to message me. Thanks, Joy

    Medicine Hat unknown Bone

    Hello fossil forum, Recently we were out hiking in the Coulee near Medicine Hat, Alberta! As newbie fossil enthusiasts, we were hoping for some expert weigh ins to help identify this fossilized bone we found. We have some very interest kids (and adults!) who were hoping to narrow it done from Chunkasaurus, to hopefully, a general species. ID or no ID, we do appreciate any direction on this! The Newbies
  21. First piece I suspect is frill and it’s about 2-2.5 inches long. Second is what I think is a toe bone and is 1.5-2 inches long. Thanks! Found in horse shoe canyon Alberta.
  22. Hey Folks, Found this little piece in a construction area here in Cochrane. What is the best way to glue them together? Thanks Folks!

    Dinosaur bone?

    Hello all, Recently on a trip to Alberta I received this in a museum. It was labelled as a dinosaur bone, but not further information. Would anyone be able to provide a clearer picture? Thanks!
