  2. I'd like to share with you a dinosaur footprint I recovered off the beach on Saturday. It comes from the Saltwick Formation, Whitby I know that dinosaur footprints are much harder to prove without absolute doubt since they are trace fossils unlike bone or ammonites ect. But I think this is a really good example as the three toes can be clearly seen. Not much of a heel so probably didnt put it's foot fully flat on the sand, which I've heard happened often (correct me if i'm wrong)

    Fossil finds

    The BBC news has ran two great fossil find stories leading up to Christmas first headline was Largest millipede fossil ever! found on a Northumberland beach Arthropleura in a sandstone block Howick bay. The second story was of the best ever dinosaur embryo in egg found in china thought to be an Oviraptosaur. Both news items are worth checking out as they are fantastic finds. Merry Christmas to you all John
  4. This just looked bizarre compared to any other concretions with such smoothness and the perfectly scalloped out area. Could it be dino bone of some sort? ?

    Potential T. Rex Bone?

    I found this bone on a fossil hunting trip in North Dakota, it was identified as a theropod, probably a T. Rex. Can anyone verify this claim? Thanks for any responces! (The ruler is mesuring in centimeters)
  6. So guys I’ve been wondering about what y’all think are the best books for reference and for art books, paleo art is really cool to me and I’d love to add some. 2nd does anyone here have any ideas on where I should look for fossils, Central Fl Region?
  7. I am attaching photos of a fossil found in a cold water spring in Texas, that I call the Luvasourus. You cannot really see everything in these pictures. The location in Texas where it was found (along with many others) is a spring with a water temp below 65 degrees. It is unique for Texas, and no one has ever seen anything quite like this. It has been reviewed by three Universities in Texas, a Paleontologist, and several others. At this point I have been told it is probably pre-dinosaur, possibly petrified, possibly a species of Brighstoneus, or even the claw of a raptor, and baby T-rex.

    Turtle egg

    I've been finding what I believe are eggs of prehistoric animals mainly turtles or tortoises. I've been told they are rocks so I decided to sand one down and discovered what looks to be a turtle inside. I'm I have not been able to find others with turtles inside but realize they didn't hatch for a reason either they weren't fertilized or they were or died before they were hatched. Alsoi am currently homeless and do not have a lot of resources at my disposal (besides time) or the knowledge of what I'm doing. The larger egg has a brown leathery patch covering approx a quarter of the egg.
  9. Hi everyone. I have a question, or rather I would like the opinion of all of you as fossil collectors and lovers of the life of the past, both amateurs and professionals. The truth has little that I entered the world of paleontology, and the truth does not cease to amaze; I have barely 5 or 6 months researching everything about life in the past, and throughout the months I always see the same debate between people that for sure, is nothing new for all of you. The problem of whether to collect fossils or not. I recently read right here in the forum about a very controversial paleontolog

    Dromaeosaur bones question

    I am doing some research on dromaeosaur bones, and I only found limited data and pictures on the web. I am particularly looking for caudal vertebrae and ribs pictures and structures. So I make an attempt towards TFF members knowledge and data !
  11. Just received my first Raptor tooth for my collection, an Acheroraptor temertyorum. Photos show it's new home and comparison with the other Theropod teeth i currently have...
  12. Inspired by @daves64 pictures, I decided to try out a Dino Lite for myself. I tried the AF4915ZTL model. I knew I wanted image stacking capabilities, which Dino-Lite calls Extended Depth of Field (EDOF), Automatic Magnification Reading (AMR) since an accurate scale bar was a priority and a long working distance for larger specimens so that helped narrow down the model. There are definitely pros and cons about it, but I'll let the results do the talking. Taken using EDOF: Taken using EDOF as well: Taken using the Extended Dynamic Range (EDR) feat
  13. Why is Tyrannosaurus the only dinosaur that is mainly referred to by the genus name and the species name? I mean, nobody talks about T. horridus or D. longus but nobody also just talks about plain Tyrannosaurus.
  14. Got a guy from Tiawan who has these oviraptor eggs from Jiangxi. He tells me he can legally export them. They look good to me but would like some input from you pros. Thanks so much RB

    Dino tooth?

    So I went to the beach, to find this tooth looking fossil. I am unsure on whether it is anything special and need to know just in case here is a pic. of it
  18. Dinosaur teeth from North Carolina are very rare to come by. There are only a small handful of sites where they have come from. One of the sites is well known, but the others are a closely guarded secret. Those of you who have been lucky to find such things, let's see your pictures. Not mosasaurs, not plesiosaurs but land dwelling dinosaurs. Here are mine. First a Tyrannosauroidea indet. There are two known Tyrannosaurids from N.C. Dryptosaurus and Appalachasaurus.The small size of this tooth will most likely keep it from being able to be ID'd

    Is it even a tooth?

    Hi! This is my first time here so may i most embarrassingly start by asking if this is even a tooth? Found along Red Deer River in Alberta a few km south of Tolman Bridge (in Horseshoe Canyon formation). I found it washed up in an erosion channel. Thank you, Danno/

    Vernal road trip

    This is probably going to be a long post, so I hope you're bored! This is an area I have wanted to visit since I was a little kid and first wanted to be a Paleontologist. Unfortunately, this area was a long way from my family's normal vacationing route so I never made it. One of my other past-times is running. I got into running half marathons and then decided I wanted to run one in every state. I was supposed to come last year, but, well, covid sucked the fun out of everything. Anyway, Vernal Utah (known as dinosaurland and home to the Dinosaur National Monument) hosts an annu
  21. Hi Everyone, New to the forum here but thought you guys might be able to help me ID some finds from today. Was out today for a few hours with my daughter and we found 2 items that I think might be Dino material but maybe not. I was thinking maybe a hadrosaurus tooth and a long shot on a worn dryptosaurus claw. The claw is interesting because it is definitely not coprolite as it’s rock and not sandy.

    Is it real fossil or just a rock

    I have found this and i would like to know if it's a real fossil or just a rock.
  23. Hello, I am new on forum, my name is Gregory. I have a few mammal fossils on my collection and was looking at dino eggs (I know nothing about them). I visited a few of your topics talking about them. I saw one on online and was wondering if this is a real one or a faked one. size : 16 cm X 7 cm.

    Tyrannosauroidea indet.

    Dinosaur teeth from North Carolina are rare and have only been found in a handful of locations. Other than one well known location, these other sites are kept very close to the vest for obvious reasons. Most North Carolina collectors will never find one.I had originally I.D. this tooth as Dromaeosuarid. However after research and consultation with our resident expert Troodon this I.D. has been debunked. After additional pictures, especially of the base and serration it was determined to be a Tyrannosuroidea idet. The two known Tyrannosaurids from NC are Dryptosaurus and Appalachasaurus. Howeve

    10 Years

    On Sept. 23 2010 a basically novice fossil collector was looking online trying to I.D. some shark teeth from Lee Creek. While he had been "collecting" for more than a decade it was not a truly serious hobby. While surfing the web he stumbled upon this fledgling thing called the fossil forum. Something told this guy to go ahead and become a member. When asked for a screen name, even though his name was Don he decided on sixgill pete. That was because one of his grandsons had called him that on a hunt. Well the rest is history. 10 years later to the day, he is
