Preparation of Zuul crurivastator
Troodon posted a topic in Fossil PreparationZuul crurivastator is a genus of herbivorous ankylosaurine dinosaur from the Campanian, Judith River Formation of Montana that was described earlier this year. The name Zuul was inspired by the monster Zuul in the movie Gostbusters. Some images from the ROM that is ongoing in the preparation of this monster. Took 8 weeks to dig up and will take 4 years to prepare. 3D Skull DL4BnoMW0AEDqLj.mp4
From the album: Hell Creek / Lance FormationsOne of my favorites as a kid - the archetypical Ankylosaurian - Ankylosaurus. Ankylosaurus teeth appear to be fairly uncommon in Hell Creek - some paleontologists have suggested that Ankylosaurus may have lived in the highlands or nearer the coast of Laramidia. Most "Ankylosaurus" teeth you see for sale are actually Nodosaurid (cf. Denversaurus), for whatever reason, they seem to be far more common. Ankylosaurus teeth also often have wear facets, as this one does. The denticles give their teeth a "leaf-like" appearance. Given their shorter stature, Ankylosaurians probably were low-browsers.
From the album: Hell Creek / Lance FormationsThe denticles and enamel of this Ankylosaurus tooth are exceedingly well-preserved.
Large Ankylosaurid tooth from the JRF. What species?
WyomingRocks! posted a topic in Fossil IDHello, this is another Ankylosaurid tooth but what specific species? The tooth is the baby blue color in the last pic and has an almost unworn crown. It is about 12.5mm wide. Thanks for any help.
Euoplocephalus tooth?? Great specimen!
WyomingRocks! posted a topic in Fossil IDThis is the best Euoplocephalus (??) tooth I have found. Very minimal feeding wear, decent size and good color. Size is 10mm wide by 11mm tall. Please let me know if this is a Euoplo. or something else. Thx!

Lance Formation Scute?
Raptor9468 posted a topic in Fossil IDI just got this bone fragment refered to as a scute from either an ankylosaur or a turtle from the lance formation. Upon further inspection,I dont see the typical ankylosaur blood vessels or the turtle carapace type features.
Omnomosaurus posted a topic in Fossil IDYou'll all be sick of me asking for input on specimens at this rate! I'm pretty unsure about this, since I'm mainly a tooth collector. Does it look like an ankylosaurid scute to anyone?? Locality: Isle of Wight, UK. Wealden Formation. Size: 80mm X 55mm
A New Ankylosaurid from Utah
Troodon posted a topic in Fossil NewsA partial ankylosaurid skeleton from the upper Campanian Kaiparowits Formation of southern Utah is recognized as a new taxon, Akainacephalus johnsoni. The new taxon documents the first record of an associated ankylosaurid skull and postcranial skeleton from the Kaiparowits Formation. A good reference paper to aid in identification of ankylosaurid bones https://peerj.com/articles/5016/
Unknown tooth from Oldman formation
MedicineHat posted a topic in Fossil IDHi, I found this little gem in Southern Alberta. Any ideas about what creature it looks like it might belong to?
Pterosaur posted a topic in Questions & AnswersHello everyone, I've been researching dinosaur intelligence, and have read about certain dinosaurs who were considered more intelligent than most others. From what I gather, even the cleverer dinosaurs were left in the dust by modern birds and mammals, yet dinosaurs were apparently very smart for reptiles... I've read that Ankylosaurids were exceedingly unintelligent, and that Troodon were brilliant for their time. The intellect of Ornithomimus is speculated by some to have been akin to that of an ostrich, and Tyrannosaurus Rex apparently had a fairly large section of its brain specifically
