  1. The Mesozoic is an area that is sorely lacking in my collection. I don't know why, but I just never got around to collecting in it. I never fell in love with dinosaurs or mososaurs like a lot of other people. That was until fairly recently, when I finally took it upon myself to diversify my collection and get to know better my area's (and in some ways own backyard!) geology and paleontology. I set out to discover more about Maryland's Mesozoic Park. I guess it would be best to start off from the beginning. I started the journey not knowing what I'd find, but knowing w

    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
  4. Did not know where exactly to put this post however as South America is the nearest country to Antarctica, it's here. I have been recently very interested in learning about dinosaurs from this area over most others and here's some info on the Antarctica. Imagine how it would be like to explore the coldest place on Earth and the challenges that one may face when trying to identify material from this location. A fully fleshed-out Cryolophosaurus is on display at the Natural History Museum LA. Photo by Charly Shelton. Antarctica was not always a frozen

    Lance Formation Dinosaur Bones ID

    For Christmas, I'd gotten a box of matrix from the Lance formation. I have some fossils that I am not sure what they are and would like to get your opinions. All of these fossils are from the Lance formation of Weston Co. WY. The first one is I think a theropod ungual, missing both the distal and proximal ends. Here are the pictures. The second one I'm pretty sure is a partial Edmontosaurus metacarpal. The The third one might be a ornithischian ungual. And here is the final one, I think that it might be a jaw section.
  6. http://www.sci-news.com/paleontology/dinosaur-carotenoid-coloration-10354.html Non-avian dinosaurs may have had bright color on their skin, scales and beaks in a manner similar to modern birds, according to a paper published in the journal Evolution. http://cdn.sci-news.com/images/2021/12/image_10354-Orange-Dinosaurs.jpg Link to article: Estimating the distribution of carotenoid coloration in skin and integumentary structures of birds and extinct dinosaurs [paywalled, sadly] My Uni does not have access- I'd love to read this one if someone has

    Montana fossils

    Hello, I recently acquired a small box of fossils from someone who had passed away recently. Inside were many fossils including those pictured. The only indicator of where they are from is that the box says "MONTANA". I can tell there are dromeosaur teeth, hadrosaur teeth, ankylosaur teeth and such. I know the man I got them from would routinely dig in the hell creek formation but I just wanted to make sure there wasn't anything obvious that I'm missing that would indicate that these fossils were collected elsewhere. My guess is that they are from the hell creek formation however.

    Your "wish list"

    What is your "wish list"? My wish list, i think is this: 1) Morrison fm Sauropod tooth 2) Acrocanthosaurus (I know that is very, very rare and i will never get one) 3) Troodon tooth 4) Suchomimus 5) Ceratosaur tooth 6) Morrison theropod 7) Dimetrodon tooth 8) Tyrannosaurid tooth 9) Acheroraptor 10) Pliosaur tooth I write only about dinosaurs, reptiles and synapsid because if i will add more clade, is very hard to make the list.

    Best Dinosaur Books

    My advice to any collector who is interested in dinosaurs is to become as much an expert as possible and do not rely solely on others for identification. One way to do so is to start a library of good reference books and pdf papers. This topic will focus on BOOKS There are a few must have books, if you're interested in TEETH and in my opinion this is the bible for North American ones. Dinosaur Systematics Approaches and Perspectives by Carpenter & Currie Addresses : 1)Chapter with detailed illustrations and ID guide of the teeth of Alberta's theropod's that are basical
  11. An overlooked fossil turned out to be a new herbivorous dinosaur with an oddly shaped nose Brighstoneus simmondsi has a big lump around the nostrils, like a chunky alligator. By Philip Kieffer, Popular Science, November 10, 2021 The open access paper is: McDonald, A.T., Barrett, P.M. and Chapman, S.D., 2010. A new basal iguanodont (Dinosauria: Ornithischia) from the Wealden (Lower Cretaceous) of England. Zootaxa, 2569(1), pp.1-43. Researchgate PDF Yours, Paul H.
  12. So this is my 1st time on the trade forum, so I hope I'm doing it right. I have this partial green river formation Eohiodon fish that is about 6 inches long that I self-collected from the split fish layer and I would like to trade it for dinosaur fossils. The fossils that I would want would be tyrannosaur teeth partials, and fossils from the Hell Creek and Judith River formations. Here are the pictures of the fish.
  13. Greetings! This is my first share on this forum. I was looking through my collections, and one thing popped my mind was this tooth -- a tooth of Xiongguanlong baomoensis,which i found in 2014 but I could not give a very conclusive identification until earlier this year. I was lucky enough to travel along with a group of scientists into the Gobi desert in Northern China. That day we was traveling in the border zone of three different provinces, basically middle of nowhere. This basin is where most dinosaur from Gansu found -- including X. baomoensis, Auroraceratop rugo
  14. It was hard to believe that six years had passed since I last visited the badlands of the San Juan Basin...if you are interested, I posted a few of those previous trips here and here.

    Hell creek dinosaur fossil

    Good evening, I recently went fossil hunting in Dawson county MT in the Hell Creek formation. I believe that the fossil I collected is a possible dinosaur vertebra. Is there any way to determine what dinosaur this maybe and if it is a vertebra? The measurement is 7 inches long and 4 inches wide. Thank you, geogrl
  16. Hello, Since all those covid restrictions I haven't got the opportunity to go look for fossils outside of Belgium. So most of our trips from the last year are almost exclusively in the devonian. To get a little change of this I was hoping to find some unprepped vertebrate material, it dousn't have to be complete and I am not afraid of some puzzel work, but the pieces need to be recognisable. I can offer a multitude of different fossils for trade. ( Ammonites, spiriferids, shark teeth, sea-urchins,...) Natalie

    My “Mesozoic Park”

    Well, I figured that I should start a member’s collection. Sorry for my absence, I was busy with college classes. I did great this semester, and I even won a student leadership award! With that being said, I’m gonna start my collection off with a piece that I acquired for my birthday! My 22nd Birthday is tomorrow (June 14th), and I was strapped for money. My father and grandmother chipped in, and helped me acquire this chromium woodworthia piece from a local rock shop that I frequent! It’s from Arizona, and it only cost $60 USD! I’ll try to be active here whenever I can
  18. We’ve just been to the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh to see the Ray Harryhausen exhibition. The exhibition contains models and drawings that Ray Harryhausen made for his various movies. It was a great exhibition and well worth a visit. It had all the models from my favourite films like Jason and the Argonauts, Clash of the Titans and the three Sinbad movies. Why this thread on the fossil forum. Well Ray loved dinosaurs and he was lifelong friends with Ray Bradbury who also loved dinosaurs.

  20. Hi, does anyone have or know where I can view images of a ankyloaurus/nodosaur foot but especially the ungals? Having a hard time finding images for a comparison.
  21. I saw a dinosaur supporting bone. Excavated from Madagascar. But I don't know the variety. His minimum perimeter is 60.5CM. Can you determine the weight? About?

    Leptoceratops tooth

    From the album: Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    While far less famous than its horned and frilled relatives, Leptoceratops were interesting small herbivores in their own right, likely utilizing their deep set jaws as a deterrent for predators. So far this is the only tooth from this genus I've found so far.
  23. Hi, everyone. I’m brand new here, so, pleased to meet all of you! I’m wondering if any of you know of locations in the US where you can dig for dinosaur fossils (body and/or trace) on a one-day-at-a-time basis and keep some of the material found. Thanks in advance.
  24. Hello! I want some photos with scientifically accurate Diplodocus and other Morrison diplodocids life restoration.
