    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

    Dromaeosauridae

    From the album: Hell Creek / Lance Formations

    Dromaeosauridae (Cf. Acheroraptor temertyorum) Hell Creek Fm., Carter Co., MT, USA Acheroraptor's dentition is known incompletely, so it's possible this tooth is from Acheroraptor. Until more material is described, this tooth will remain indeterminate. There may be slight facets, but I'm not confident that's what I'm seeing.

    Acheroraptor temertyorum

    From the album: Hell Creek / Lance Formations

    Acheroraptor temertyorum Hell Creek Fm., Garfield Co., MT, USA A Velociraptorine tooth with the diagnostic longitudinal ridges Acheroraptor is known for. This tooth has some wear on the tip and root etching at the base. Art by Emily Willoughby

    Acheroraptor tooth

    Identification A. temertyorum is characterized by the typical Dromaeosaurid traits (compressed, recurved, differing mc/dc serration densities), and longitudinal ridges/facets on the crown face. Notes This tooth was found this past Summer ('21), and in the same county as the holotype specimen.

    Hell creek theropod tooth

    I have this tooth that i believe to be a small nanotyrannus but i just want to get confirmation so let me know what you think everyone. Its from the Hell Creek Formation. Garfield Ct. Montana. Its CH is 11 mm Serration count: Distal 12 per 3 mm Mesial 15 per 3 mm The base of this tooth is beat up so its impossible to see if it would have had that rectangular pinch that is characteristic of nano teeth. There seems to be no twist of the mesial carinae In my opinion the serrations look peg like as seen in nano teeth.

    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 !
  8. Fast. Intelligent. Deadly. The "Raptor" is perhaps one of the most famous dinosaur today thanks to Jurassic Park. To many people's surprise however, raptors are heavily feathered and nimbler than movies would have you believe. The Jurassic Park Velociraptor was merely the size of coyote in real life! In fact, their proper family name is 'Dromaeosaurid'. The largest species was Utahraptor, and it grew to the size of a grizzly bear! Dromaeosaurid fossils have been found all over the world. They first appeared during the Cretaceous, though isolated teeth have been found in the mid-Jurassic. Allow

    Hell Creek Small Theropod Claw

    Hi everyone! I wanted to post one of my new favorite finds from this past week of collecting in the Hell Creek formation of Montana. I found this little partial claw at a microsite which proved to be quite productive, making for a great day. While the articulating surface is missing, I still feel that it could be identifiable and my first guess is bird. Avisaurus in particular as I remember seeing similar claws being labeled as such on other platforms. It’s about two centimeters long and the bottom is flat, giving it a somewhat triangular cross section. photos from the field.

    Dromaeosaurid Tooth

    Identification: This is a typical Dromaeosaurid tooth, with the serrations being differently-sized on each carina; the denticles are much smaller on the mesial carina compared to the distal carina. There's also slight recurvature, which is common in Dromaeosaurs. There are no other features present that allow for identification beyond Family. Described Dromaeosaurs in the Hell Creek Formation include Acheroraptor temertyorum and Dakotaraptor steini. Because both of their known dentitions are incomplete, this tooth may belong to either, or another undescribed Dromaeosaur. Identificati

    Dromaeosauridae indet. (Velociraptorine?) Hell Creek Fm., Carter Co., MT, USA Crown height: ~ 10 mm ~ 4.5 serrations / mm (distal) NB: "hooking" serrations near the tip, characteristic of members of Velociraptorinae (Currie (1995)).

    Hell Creek Dromaeosaurid

    Hi y'all, I picked up this gorgeous Dromaeosaurid tooth. It was listed as Acheroraptor and I bought it thinking it was one. However, upon receiving it and taking some measurements, I believe it may be a candidate for Dakotaraptor steini, as it virtually matches one in @Troodon's collection in every metric. It has a semi-oval base, with no ridges or facets commonly seen on Acheroraptor. The mesial carina is straight, and terminates almost 1/3 the CH from the base. Dromaeosauridae Hell Creek Fm., Carter Co., MT, USA CH: ~ 10.5 mm CBL: ~ 6 mm CBW: 3 mm Mesial de

    Hell Creek Vertebra

    Thanks for taking the time to check this out. The vert is ID'ed as Dromaeosaurus from Hell Creek Fm, Powder River County. I've been having a frustrating time trying to make better sense of this, since, as for as I know, there have been no Dromaeosaurus IDs in HC. Are any of you able to shed light on the likelihood of it being dromaeosaurid and anything beyond that? The measurements are 1.875" long * 1" wide * 1.625" tall. (I have a vert centrum ID'ed as Dromaeosaurus from a Judith River Fm and it's only about 0.8" * 0.4*0.5. Position may well explain the huge size difference, but I'm not sure

    Saurornitholestes langstoni

    From the album: Dinosaurs

    Saurornitholestes langstoni Judith River Fm., Fergus Co., MT, USA ~ 9 mm crown height This tooth has wear facets at the tip/apex.
  16. Found lots of teeth today, here’s some I need a little help with as I’ve never found these before. I think one is a troodontid, one is maybe dromaeosaur, and the other I have no idea. (Apologies for the quality, my phone isn’t good macro photography) Dinosaur Park Fm
  17. Hi all, I could not resist and took another shot on my quest to obtain a Dakotaraptor tooth. Here the tooth in question this time: It was found in the Hell Creek Formation, Garfield County. Measurements are: CH 1,41 cm - CBL 0,68 cm - CBW 0,3 cm - denticles per 5mm are 22 mesial and 19 distal. Note the slight tilt of the denticles towards the tip of the tooth. It's the best fit I have found so far, what deviates from the dePalma description is the shape of the base, it has a pinch, but I would not consider it rectangular. As a side note, it looks exactly like the base of Acheroraptor

    ID requested: Kem Kem tooth

    Hi everyone, I am currently eyeing this Theropod tooth from the Kem Kem beds in Morocco which is listed as a Deltadromeus tooth. Now I know that no teeth can be attributed to Deltadromeus as no cranial material has been found yet and I know that most teeth sold as Deltadromeus are in fact Abelisaurid teeth but this tooth seems way to curved to be Abelisaurid which could my eye instantly. So I was think if this might be a Dromaeosaurid tooth which while rare (and not yet officially described from Kem Kem) are somethings found and sold as Deltadromeus. Or might this be a small ant
  19. Hi I have had this Hell Creek tooth that was previously ID as Dromaeosaur (possibly Dakota Raptor) for a while and the other day I decided to get my magnifying camera out to take a deeper look at the specimen as I have heard that some Dromaeosaur and small Nanotyranus teeth can be quite challenging to tell apart from one another. These are the close up pics of the specimen that I am still a little unsure about: Mesial side with serration showing a little carinae twist Distal side with straight carinae that stretches down to the base of the tooth in

    Saurornitholestes

    Identification: Dromaeosaurs have differently-sized serrations on each carina, the ones on the distal carina being much larger and pronounced than the mesial ones. The mesial carina also has a classic twist. Notes: This tooth has feeding wear facets on both the labial and lingual sides of the tip. Citation: SUES, HANS-DIETER, 1978.

    Hell Creek Small Digit

    I found this tiny, slender bone at a Hell Creek microsite during my trip to the Dakotas in 2019 with PaleoProspectors. I'm not sure what it came from, but I'm hoping it's theropod, avian or otherwise. It's missing a section of the outer layer of bone and I believe the interior is hollow & filled in with the ironstone common in the formation. The dimensions are 1.7 cm in length and about 3 mm in width. I would appreciate any feedback you may have. In situ shot from the site: The closeup shots did not come out exactly how I wanted them lighting and detail wise. If you would l

    Tiny Lance fm. Theropod Tooth

    Hi everyone, tonight I want to share with you one of my favorite finds from the summer, this absolutely tiny theropod tooth I found looking through anthill matrix in Wyoming's Lance formation. It's currently the smallest theropod tooth in my collection and it's always an interesting contrast when compared to my largest personally found tooth (a Tyrannosaurid from Judith River). It's about 3 mm in length and a bit over 1.5 mm in width. I believe the serrations have been worn off as they are incredibly faint in some areas and absent in others. I'm not sure if the way the light gleans off t

    Horseshoe Canyon Theropod Tooth

    I found this small theropod tooth (missing the tip) in the Horseshoe Canyon Formation of Alberta a few months ago. I’m not sure on the identity of the tooth, as it’s rather Troodontid or Dromaeosaurid. It has the crown and denticle shape of a troodontid, but the serration density of a dromaeosaurid (about 3 serrations per mm). The serrations are a bit worn down fyi. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
  24. Hi everyone! Many of you have probably already seen this piece. The seller says it’s probably a Troodonor or Dromaeosaur and that it’s from an old 80’s collection. I’m interested, what is your opinion on it’s state, the species and restoration? Also, why would they keep the surrounding matrix on the skull?

    Raptor tibia?

    I’m hoping that this is a raptor tibia, as it was supposed to be. Can anyone help ID it? Also, I’m guessing that’s filler at the end, there, clearly seen in the 5th, or 2nd-to-last pic? Thanks in advance for any, and all help:)
