  1. Another important dinosaur paper that is paywalled. Went the rental route again. The paper takes the first good look at the Skull of the Dromaeosaurid, Saurornitholestes langstoni from the Dinosaur Park Formation. It provided great insight into Dromaeosaurid's and specifically the dentition which we as collectors are most interested in. Similar species are found in Montana's Judith River and Two Medicine Formation. The biggest surprise were the premaxillary teeth, they are distinctive, and teeth previously identified in the Dinosaur Park Formation as Zapsalis abradens can now be identified as the second premaxillary tooth of S. langstoni. The morphology and wear patterns suggest that these may have been specialized for preening feathers. Zapsalis is one of those tooth taxons and brings into question if its indeed valid or just synonymous with Saurornitholestes. The paper makes the following statement "The similarity between the premaxillary teeth of Saurornitholestes and Zapsalis show that the latter is a dromaeosaurid and suggests that the two genera are synonymous. However the differences suggest they are distinct at least at the species level. Pending the discovery of additional Associated skeletal material from the Judith River formation of Montana it is recommended that the two genera be kept separate." The holotype tooth of Zapsalis (right) from the JRF is slightly different than the Saurornitholestes tooth. See Fig. Might just be tooth to tooth variations. https://anatomypubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/ar.24241#.XXZqJ1PoYmg.twitter Cranial Anatomy of New Specimens of Saurornitholestes langstoni (Dinosauria, Theropoda, Dromaeosauridae) from the Dinosaur Park Formation (Campanian) of Alberta Philip J.

  2. Unknown tyrannosaur

    Hi I found this and am wondering is this a new species of tyrannosaur I don’t think it’s albertosaurus libratus because it is in a collection with gorgosaurus libratus and albertosaurus sarcophagcus so if it was albertosaurus libratus there would not be any specimens named gorgosaurus libratus there are other specimens then just this tooth too any information? Thanks.
  3. Is this akylosaur skin

    Is this akylosaur skin it matches the euoplcephalus skin above found in dinosaur provincial park.
  4. Dinosaur or Mammal bone ID help

    I found this on the bank of the Red Deer River in Alberta Canada. I have no idea what it's from. I have never found a fossilized bone before. Does anyone have any ideas? Not sure if it could be from a Dinosaur or a mammal like a young mammoth or something. I would love to get some ideas on this one. I am willing to answer any questions or take new photos if needed.
  5. Can anyone ID this?

    Hi everyone. I found this on the Red Deer River in Alberta Canada. I was wondering if anyone could ID what animal this fossil came from? I cant get all images in one post in will post the other photos in the comments.
  6. The Royal Tyrrell Museum

    I had recommended going through the Royal Tyrrell Museum to a friend from Kansas last year in September and he was very impressed (I wondered if it was just because he couldn't get out and golf in the snow). This year I went with my 9 year old Granddaughter who didn't sound like she wanted to go. Long story short, we spent a whole day there. I was sort of surprised when I heard they only have 1/2 of 1 percent of the the collection on display. I can only guess that they have a huge warehouse someplace with the rest of the collection catalogued and stored.
  7. Any ideas what this is ?

    I found this one in the same location of a few other confirmed fossils, is it just a rock or should I investigate this further?
  8. Corals?

    Hi everyone! I retook some photos with the tips I was given (Thankyou) found in a riverbed, Alberta, Canada
  9. Fossil or no fossil

    Hi everyone! Mega mega newbie here and I’m not even sure if I got my hand on real fossils or not. So would appreciate any information and suggestions, thankyou
  10. Hello everyone, I'm going to be in Alberta soon and I was hoping to do some fossil hunting. I read on a previous post to this forum that dinosaur fossils can be found in the Horseshoe Valley, but I was wondering if anyone has any other suggestions near Drumheller, or if they could provide any tips for this locale. I'm aware of the laws regarding fossil collection as well, all specimens will be catch and release. I'm just trying to fulfill a dream I've had since watching Jurassic Park 20 years ago haha. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
  11. Good to see this put to bed. Abstract says it all...abbreviated... Several published censuses have noted the presence of two tyrannosaurids, Daspletosaurus sp. and Albertosaurus sarcophagus, within the Upper Cretaceous Horseshoe Canyon Formation of Alberta............Although none of these methods individually provides convincing evidence regarding the affinities of the specimen, together (and including other historical and biostratigraphic considerations) they strongly imply that the skeleton instead pertains to a young A. sarcophagus. In this way, we show that only a single species of tyrannosaurid is definitively present in the Horseshoe Canyon Formation..... https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/ar.24199#.XRitpqp2V8E.twitter Great photos in this paper...good reference material for use in comparative ID's Example:
  12. Looking for an ID please

    Hi, looking for an ID on this. From research it looks like snake vertebrae? But seems too large. Big snake? Found in Alberta. About 8 inches across, 3 inches deep. Thank you for any ideas.
  13. Hi all, I'm planning a trip to Alberta this summer and am hoping to dig for dinosaur fossils somewhere. Our trip will take us to drumheller for a day, which puts us in close proximity to Horseshoe and Horsethief Canyons, both of which I've heard contain fossils. What I'm wondering is, where in the canyons can fossils be found? And is one of the canyons better for fossil hunting than the other? If anyone knows of any other fossil sites near drumheller that are open to the public, that would also be great. Thanks!
  14. Literally Rattled

    Hiking on another beautiful spring day near Manyberries AB. Found some dinosaur bones, mostly broken pieces. Hadrosaur, ankylosaur, tyrannosaur, raptor, croc, turtle, ...rattlesnake! I love it when they rattle at you from under the sagebrush from 3 ft away...so polite of them! Among other things, i found this strange specimen. It looks very ...dinosaur-like
  15. Dinosaur park formation fossils

    Does anyone have photos of fossils from dinosaur provincial park Alberta if so can you send me them because I’m doing reaserch on the dinosaur park formation
  16. Do you know what this fossil is were on the body and from which dinosaur ?
  17. Tooth marks on Dino bone?

    I found this piece of dinosaur bone last summer while I was surface collecting in the Horseshoe Canyon area near Drumheller, Alberta. It wasn’t until I was home and cleaned the piece that I noticed what looks like tooth marks on the bone. Is it tooth marks on the bone? I know this is stretch but any idea what type of bone this may be (rib, leg, etc.)? Thanks for looking at this. Cherise
  18. Any thought on what this is?

    Hi All, looking for ideas again! I came across this piece in the collection that was left to me and I am wondering if anyone has any ideas as to what it might be? Probably found in Cretaceous Alberta in Dinosaur Provincial Park. I was going to guess corporlite, but I really have no idea! All thoughts greatly appreciated!!!
  19. Seller has a couple of very nice Tyrannosaurid teeth for sale with the proper disposition no issue with any of that. The fly in the ointment is formation or locality. He describes these teeth as being from the Oldman Formation of Drumheller. The problem is that teeth found around Drum are earlier in age and associated with the Horseshoe Canyon Fm. The Oldman Formation is far from Drumheller located southeast of Calgary vs Northeast. The implication of all of this is species of Tyranno these teeth are associated with Albertosaurus (HCF ) or Gorgosaurus or Daspletosaurus (OF)
  20. Fossil?

    Appears to be mineral deposits of some sort, however the spiral shape of the mineral makes it look fossily. Matrix is 4"x4"x6", very dense, hardness around 5. Found in a river near Grand Cache, Alberta. Any ideas?
  21. Id please?

    Does anyone have any ideas about these two bits? The round one is almost perfectly round.
  22. Some of my stuff

    I've not been able to get on this site as much as I would have liked to since I joined only a few months ago. I have a few bits that were left to me and I hold very near to me. Nothing here is for sale, but I just wanted to share some pictures of my collection. Please feel free to correct me, as I've self taught myself what some of these pieces are. My cousin's mother-in-law was one of the 1st amateur female paleontologists in Alberta and she has long passed and her item were given to me. Ammonite rugosa coral brachiopods garpike scales receptaculites crocodile teeth and scutes claws? hadrosaurid toe turtleback vertebra raptor and croc teeth anklyosaurid teeth raptor tooth! hadrosaurid jaw and teeth
  23. I am itching to find my first ammonite. The problem is I dont know where to look. I know they are found in southern alberta but here is my question. Can ammonites be found anywhere in alberta? Also I live on a very large lake in northern alberta, is it worth my time to look around my lake for ammonites? I dont want to bother if it's not possible to find any. Also any advice on ammonite hunting would be much appreciated.
  24. I found this years ago as well. I cant remember exactly where. I think maybe by the lesser slave lake area. There is some kind of imprint on the rock. Does anyone know what it is from?
  25. Fossil ID part 2

    I found this when I was a kid. I have no clue what it is. Could be just a weird rock I guess. It looks to me like it could be some sort of a shell maybe? Any ideas? I will post a couple photos in the comments since I can only upload one photo at a time.
