Tyrannosaur at the Tyrrell
dinosaur man posted a topic in Partners in Paleontology - Member Contributions to ScienceI recently learned that the Tyrannosaur femur I discovered in Dinosaur Provincial Park in 2018 (the same day I discovered my Hadrosaur Trackway, actually only 10 minutes apart from each other) is at the Royal Tyrrell Museum. I originally reported it in late 2018 and the Dinosaur Provincial Park team collected it and brought it to the field station, they then gave it to the Tyrrell and it’s been there since. But the thing is I never knew this until recently as I asked Caleb Brown about it when I was asking him about the Hadrosaur Trackway, he said it was collected by another group which turne
Hadrosaur trackway contribution
dinosaur man posted a topic in Partners in Paleontology - Member Contributions to ScienceI have recently been looking at some of my photos from trips and found photos of when I was in Alberta in 2018. I saw a photo of a Hadrosaur footprint from a trackway in Dinosaur Provincial Park that me and my brother found. I also read not to long ago that no big trackways have been found in this area so I decided to give the information and location to the Palaeontologist at the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, Alberta. I was responded by Dr. Caleb Brown, he told me that I was most likely right and it was probably Hadrosaur. I am currently waiting for him to reply again to see what he thi
dinosaur man posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionHi I recently found out what this bone came from from my first post I turns out it’s from a Centrosaurus Aperatus I found out from a Centrosaurus leg bone that looks exactly like this from the Centrosaurus bone bed in Dinosaur Provincial Park Alberta Canada open to any opinions.
Dinosaur Provincial Park 2018
dinosaur man posted a topic in A Trip to the MuseumToday two years ago I was in Dinosaur Provincial Park! So I just wanted to share some photos from when I was there. Here is a Ceratopsian indet leg bone Here is me beside the leg bone Next is a footprint from a Hadrosaur indet from a trackway
dinosaur man posted a topic in Fossil IDHi 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.
Dinosaur provincial park collecting
dinosaur man posted a topic in General Fossil Discussion“@Monica Yes, there are just so many fossils here that now only the best material is actually collected. This usually means anything articulated or reasonably complete. Isolated bones like the ones in my pictures are all pretty much ignored, which is sad, as yes they will inevitably just erode away. I think there needs to be a better system personally. It doesn't make sense to just let these great fossils be destroyed by the elements. But if collecting was allowed how could it be regulated to make sure only expendable material was taken? And how would you stop people then selling those bones f
A Walk Through Dinosaur Provincial Park, Alberta, Canada - 22/7/18
Paleoworld-101 posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsThis report is a bit late, but better late than never! During late July through to mid August 2018 i was on a research trip to study a new Canadian dinosaur footprint site for my Masters degree project. I am based in Australia, and this was the first time i had been to Canada! So of course i had to make the most of it and pay a visit to the world renowned Dinosaur Provincial Park in southern Alberta, arguably the richest site in the world for dinosaur fossils. The park is the best exposure of the Dinosaur Park Formation (which it is now named after), which dates to about 76.5 million years ago
Is this ankylosaur skin
dinosaur man posted a topic in Fossil IDIs this ankylosaur skin it matches the euoplcephalus skin above found in dinosaur provincial park.
Any thought on what this is?
pawprints posted a topic in Fossil IDHi 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!!!
DPP Theropods by size
The Amateur Paleontologist posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionFound this rather interesting diagram in the Currie & Longrich (2009) paper describing Hesperonychus. The diagram shows outlines of several carnivorous theropods from the Dinosaur Provincial Park assemblage, to illustrate the size & morphological range. I thought some people might like to see this @Troodon @Canadawest @Paleoworld-101
Dinosaur Flashback Friday
Troodon posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionThe skull you see in the photos was collected in 1916 from what is known today as Dinosaur Provincial Park, AB by famous paleontologist C.H. Sternberg for the NHM London. The remains were described as 'nothing but rubbish' by palaeontologist A.S. Woodward and sat in collections for the best part of a century. It was not until the nineties that a team of scientists, including Andy Farke and NHM dinolab found the remains and realized that they might be of a new species! As with most centrosaurine ceratopsians, the key was in the pattern of ornamentation (spikes and hooks) at the rea
My good news, part 2...
The Amateur Paleontologist posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionHey everyone, It's Christian here. I'm participating in a Dinosaur Provincial Park excavation! It shall be in 2 weeks. The team shall consist of University of Alberta students, various volunteers, Eva Koppelhus and THE Philip J. Currie! I'm very excited for this excavation, as it is my first (which is also taking place in the "Capital of Dinosaur Paleontology" ). Best wishes, Christian
