CEP posted a topic in Fossil IDI am fairly certain this is got to be Ceratopsian frill. It was found among about 1000lbs of ceratopsian bone but wasn't sure. It was found on the Judith River formation on the Milk River. Anyone know? I have about 10 pieces similar to this. @patrickhudson @Troodon

Judith River Plant Eater Toe Bones
CEP posted a topic in Fossil IDI found these toe bones yesterday in the Judith River Formation near the Canadian border. I have found several bones like these but not completely sure of the identification to give them. They appear hadrosaur or triceratops like based on a google search of other similar bones. Let me know if you can identify them.

Recent acquisitions...new pics
Arizona Rex posted a topic in Fossil IDHere are some new pictures of fossil number two from an earlier post. I posted this piece a few days ago. I'm hoping new pictures may help further the identification as either a ceratops horn core or piece of ankylosaur armor. If it's horn core I'm curious, is it possible it's not nose horn core but maybe a side of the face horn from a variety of ceratops? If ankylosaur armor, would this be called a spike or a scute? Thank you again for any and all assistance.
Arizona Rex posted a topic in Fossil IDI acquired these two pieces from a close acquaintance. To the best of his recollection, he purchased them at the Tucson gem show some 4 to 5 years ago. The first is said to be teeth from a coryphodon. The second, a ceratopsian horn core, possibly nose horn core. Thank you for any and all assistance.
This Can't Be A Rock... Can It?
mlandroche posted a topic in Fossil IDI know it doesn't typically look like a dinosaur fossil, but what if some were preserved once upon a time ago, like the people of Pompeii? Just a thought. Could a giant asteroid create the same kind of ashy wave of preservation as Vesuvius? Or, Is this just a granite boulder? I also wonder if earlier man might have been sculpting or carving some of these boulders, because I see a lot of odd ones around here that I want to run out and paint so people can see what I see. I have overlayed a few with what I think they might be, and if nothing else, at least I get to color, haha... I will post t
