  1. Decided to make a thread with an update on my collection with better photos and (currently) up to date info on everything with names and location. Sauropods Jobaria tiguidensis (Diplodocoidea) Jurassic (Bathonian-Oxfordian) Tiourarén Formation Marraba, Agadez Region, Niger Size: 1” Sauropoda indet. (Saltasaurus cf.?) (Titanosaur) Cretaceous (Campanian-Maastrichtian) Allen Formation Rio Province, Argentina Size: 1” Rebbachisaurus garasbe (Rebbachisauridae) Cretaceous (Cenomia
  2. Hi everybody! This my dinosaur collection. This is my Hell Creek and Judith River shelf. It's a bit empty but I'm working on getting more fossils. I also have a replica Triceratops skull that I had 3-d printed. This is my tyrannosaur tooth fragment from the Hell Creek fm of Harding County SD. I'd gotten a bag of micro-matrix from hell creek and I got some ossified tendon fragments A partial Pachycephalosaurus? caudal vertebra from Harding County SD A jaw fragment from an indeter
  3. Hi all, I have some ideas (apart from the usual non-diagnostic dismissal) already but I'm coming back to this after many years because I never could settle on a position. Hell Creek formation, obviously dinosaur, not too far from one Tyrannosaur site from a recent excavation. Might be in MOR collections, don't know, but it was marked for pickup (we were scouting on a day off from the main site). Eroding out of the same slope as an several Edmontosaurus elements I found including a 75% complete scapula from a rather large adult. Any thoughts? My hand (25 cm / 10" span outstretched, so you
  4. Hi all! Im not in America and I think the annual Tucson show is coming up soon. For those who are not able to travel and would still like to maybe have the opportunity to purchase something from there, would like to ask if there is a way for those international potential buyers to do so? As I know they most likely have a lot of variety that some of us just cant get ahold of lol. I know that other communities where an individual may want to get e.g.: a sneaker thats about to 'drop', but since they can't be there in person, they are able to still get a hold of it via
  5. Hi! I'm looking for my first T-Rex tooth for my collection. I know all T-Rex teeth are pricey and I found this piece on website with acceptable price. So I need to make sure this is real T-Rex tooth. Seller said it is from the Hell Creek Formation, Garfield County in Montana, U.S.A. Thank you!

    A Physicist's Collection

    While my prime focus is essentially learning how to accurately describe Nature in the precise language of mathematics, I've always been intrigued by natural history - it's actually what started me on the path to physics. The sort of interrogation that paleontology practices provoked me to think and question even further, down to the fundamental science which makes it all work. Collecting fossils has brought a large amount of enjoyment to my life, and is often a welcome distraction from what can sometimes be straining work. The knowledge that I accumulate along the way is also part
  7. Hi everyone. just wanted to ask on here regarding the popular auction/ selling site. Im currently looking for more dino material to add to my small collection. However, after browsing through "reliable/ famous" online fossil websites/ retailers, it seems that those websites either: only supply common fossils or, when they do have rarer pieces, they are priced very high and are sold very quickly. So I tried the popular auction site. Looking at the profiles of the sellers on that auction site, most of those sellers dig their own fossils and sell those fossils themselves without a "m
  8. #1 I've seen teeth that look like this one before in @Ridgehiker trip reports to the dinosaur park formation, but he did not describe what they are. This one appears to be rooted, found in Dinosaur Park Formation #2, #3 I believe both of these are fish scales. Possibly Gar, but I'm not certain. Found in Dinosaur Park Formation #4 This one is a mystery to me. Not sure if its a tooth or something else. One side looks like a chewing surface. Found in Dinosaur Park Formation #5 Guessing this is some kind of fish vert. Found in the Scollard, only fish material

    Dinosaur bone ID?

    I was recently been given what I assume to be a piece of dinosaur bone. I am not entirely certain. I have attached some photographs that I hope will suffice to help identify what this bone might be. Thanks!

    Is it a real tooth?

    Hi!, Recently I've bought a Spinosaurus tooth, but my family keeps saying that it is fake. The tooth came in the display, so I couldn't get it open, but I can still see it with great details. Can someone confirm that it is a real tooth and not another fake? The website that I bought it from said the following: Spinosaurus tooth 1.3 inches, form Morocco no restoration. Here are some photos. Thanks, Matt
  11. All 3 claws were found in the Scollard formation (Second one is possibly horseshoe canyon, but more likely scollard).
  12. These are some of the smaller intact teeth I've found in the area that I dont have an ID on. The last one is large enough that is should be rex, but its extremely skinny so I thought I would post and see what people think. Tooth #1 Tooth #2 Tooth #3-8 Tooth #9
  13. Looks like we will have a new book describing Vertebrate fossils from the Hell Creek Formation courtesy of the paleontologist Thomas Carr and others. What I heard is that the publication is scheduled for this fall, no idea of price. I was able to get a hold of a beta copy while visiting one of ranches I collect on and took some quick phone pictures. I had several reactions when I read the book, the dinosaur section getting poor grades while the other sections were informative. It was the first publication that covered vertebrates other than dinosaurs. The information shown was
  14. 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)

    Need help please....

    Found in Louisiana. Doesn't look like a rock to me but I can be wrong. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
  16. Dear all, as an early Christmas present I got myself this tooth. It was sold as a Dromaeosaurus from the Judith River Formation in Montana. I tried my best to take close-up pictures of the denticles… They are clearly visible on one side but seem to be very worn (they are only faintly partially visible) on the other side… Can you agree on the ID of Dromaeosaurus albertensis? Thanks in advance and have a great Holidays!

    Found this during my latest exploration. I'm beyond novice any help greatly appreciated. Measure is 100mmx100mm the actual bone is 90mmx90mm
  18. Here’s a vertebra fragment I found in Cretaceous Black Creek group sediments of North Carolina. It’s not turtle, and it doesn’t look like any crocodile vertebra I’ve ever seen. That would leave mosasaur, plesiosaur, or dinosaur. Personally I think it’s mosasaur, but I could be wrong and it may not even possible to ID further. Any thoughts?

    Large Dinosaur Leg Bone?!

    Just purchased a couple petrified/fossil jaw bones and one very ominous (leg?) bone from an older lady who inherited these from her grandfather when he died. She also had a gigantic leg bone taller than her but sadly would not part ways with it. Trying to identify what animals these belonged to and what sort of bone the large one is. Comparing the smallest jaw bone to a modern day cow femur, they both are the same weight. All are very heavy and the “leg” bone is extremely heavy for its size. Measuring is in inches
  20. Hi everyone, Recently acquired some vertebrae from Hell Creek, I think the first one (1.4 x 1.1 x 1 inches) is a small Edmontosaurus caudal and the second (1,375 x 1 x .8 inches) is a Thescelosaurus Caudal. I'm still learning though so I wanted to confirm the id. Any feedback is appreciated as always!
  21. I’m possibly looking at purchasing this pair of Moroccan vertebrae. They’re real as far as I can tell from the pics. They’re labeled as “dinosaur”, but that’s as much information as the seller has. Are these even dinosaur? Can anyone provide any other information? Thanks.

    Possible dinosaur skin?

    Hey there. So my husband has some land and we have a natural spring creek and we go just about every weekend. I'm always finding fossilized coral and quartz. Arrowheads, etc. Well, yesterday I stumbled across something that looks to me almost like skin. Hopefully, someone here can help me out .

    Help With Hell Creek Theropod Bone

    I’ve been going through some material that I collected this Summer in the Hell Creek of Southeastern Montana. I have this little theropod bone (measures approximately 14 centimeters). It is missing one end and has a little damage to the other. The bone is covered in a layer of siderite. I know that it is not much to go off of but am hoping someone might have an idea what it is. I can provide additional pictures if needed.
  24. Hi guys, I was considering purchasing the attached vertebra as a Christmas gift, however, I'm aware that identifying partial material down to the genus level can be tricky. I would really appreciate any opinions as to the identity of this vert, it's labelled as Baryonyx sp. indent and measures 8.9x10x10 cm collected from the Wessex Formation, Isle of Wight, England. From my own reading around on the forum and online (see attached figure from https://www.researchgate.net/publication/285762094_A_new_specimen_of_the_theropod_dinosaur_Baryonyx_from_the_early_Cretaceous_of_Portugal
