    Hell Creek dino tooth ID needed

    Hey guys, My friend asked me what his tooth was, it’s from Hell Creek. My first thoughts were Nano or possibly Dakotaraptor. The size of the tooth is 21mm and it has 2 serrations/mm on the distal side. On the mesial, the serrations are worn off. It’s an anterior tooth. Do you guys have any idea of an ID? Would be greatly appreciated. Maybe @Troodon knows? Thank you and kind regards.

    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

    Dinosaur scapula

    Hello, Any thoughts on this? Adding a Rex bone would be awesome, if I can get it confirmed as been legit. Hell Creek, South Dakota, said to be possible end of a scapula 7 x 4 3/4 x 1 Now, weirdly, when I try to contact the seller I get an error message. So I can't get a more exact county/town yet---but hopefully that error will be fixed so I can soon. So, is the ID on this good? Also, the bit near the top where the ID number is added--the color looks off. Is that restoration? Thanks for the help
  4. Hello! I'm a new member and I discovered this forum recently. I've already learned so much browsing threads. I'm not sure if it'll be possible, but I was hoping that I could get some help identifying a section of fossil scapula that I came across and was thinking of purchasing. The seller doesn't have much information on it besides it being a Hell Creek find in South Dakota. He thinks it may be from a tyrannosaur. Pictures attached, any thoughts would be great!

    Help ID'ing Hell Creek Claw?

    On my welcome post, I had mentioned that I was looking for a claw for my daughter. I was able to contact someone that has a claw that was found by them in the Hell Creek Formation in Montana. They state that it is from an Alvarezsaurus. I know very little about this dino. Only thing I could find when looking up Alvarezsaurus in Hell Creek is this Wikipedia Trierarchuncus It seems like not much is known about this particular species in Hell Creek. So, can any of you more knowledgeable folks identify this as an Alvarezsaurus, or possibly something different? Looks to me like it

    Dromaeosauridae distal serrations

    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

    Fossil from Hell Creek

    Please help identify this fossil found in Hell Creek.
  12. I thought this year that my son had found our first T.Rex tooth. Its both larger and thicker than any of the Nanno teeth we have dug. I was 99% sure we had our rex until I just used my (crappy) phone camera to finally get a serration count. 2.8/mm. Thats clearly in the Nanno count. Maybe next year will be our year.

    Distal MT3 of a Hadrosaur

    Finished my latest prep. Now, I realize that in the worlds of both commercial and academic paleo, this is a useless, junk fossil. Its an unassociated, partial in poor condition, and any final monetary value doesnt meet the time invested in the prep. However, its special for me in that its my first "wild" find. I hiked, explored, tracked the float, found the end of this in the face of a wall, then excavated it. I was hoping for a much more complete fossil, but this was it. It is highly fractured and deeply root rotted. But I carefully disassembled all its parts, cleaned them, consolidated t

    Triceratops metatarsal?

    I picked this up online awhile back as a Triceratops metatarsal lll. 17 in long.7 in. wide on the proximal end.6 in on distal. Weight is 7 lb, 5 ounces. Found in Hell Creek formation, Meade County, SD. Do you agree or is it possibly a different species?

    Miscellaneous Theropod Claw

    On the third day of our Hell Creek trip in Baker, Montana I stumbled upon a small theropod claw with identical blood grooves running down either side of it. Noel and I looked around for references but found no conclusive match for what it could be. It is 1.3 cm long, roughly .3 cm in width. @PaleoNoel

    Interesting Hell Creek Vertebra

    Hi everyone, I found this little, mostly complete vertebra in the Hell Creek formation of South Dakota in 2019. I don't really know what to make of it as it's very porous, and amphiplatyan (flat on both sides), although I'm not sure how much of that could be attributable to wear. I believe it's safe to cross of squamate (due to lack of concavity) and champsosaur (overall shape) off the list. While most of the crocodilian verebrae I have found in the hell creek have have a convex and concave end, I am aware that some can be found that are flat sided. The porosity of the bone makes me hopeful th

    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.
  18. I am just driving back from a fantastic 5 day collecting trip in Southeastern Montana. I had the opportunity to collect on a private ranch that had not been heavily hunted for several years. Our group made quite a few interesting finds. I am hoping that someone on the forum might be able to assist in identifying this unusual bone. It is definitely theropod and based on the size, likely tyrannosaur. It appears to be a portion of the skull but I am having trouble matching it up. I apologize for the lousy pictures in advance. The bone measures approximately 5-6

    Triceratops prorsus (2)

    From the album: Dinosaurs

    Triceratops prorsus Hell Creek Fm., Harding Co., SD, USA 3.5 cm height On the ranch where this tooth was found, only T. prorsus skulls have been found in the 30+ years the company has operated there, lending a very probable, precise identification for this Ceratopsian tooth. (T. prorsus was one of the last dinosaurs, younger than T. horridus. The two species are also stratigraphically separated in the Hell Creek Fm., so it makes sense that one may only find one species in a particular deposit.) For most Ceratopsid teeth (from the Hell Creek Fm., for example),

  22. For day 3, it was decided to go back to the Deers Ears butte. Everyone was sore and worn out from 2 days of hiking, so a chance to stay in a single spot and dig would be a chance to rest. My team went to the Tooth Draw quarry, the others went to other sites, including one new one. The day started pretty slow, but then mid afternoon my son uncovered a tooth (havent determined T.Rex or Nano). I was so proud of him, he did an expert job in recovery. The tip was broken insitu and could have been easily separated or lost, but he was slow, careful and judicious with the paleobond and got the to
  23. What a trip my son and I had this year! We started out in the Hell Creek fm of South Dakota. This was a special trip through Paleo Adventures for his "veteran" guests who have already spent a few years with him and could operate without supervision. We started out hunting a new ranch. This property is virgin ground with LOTS of acreage that needed exploration. The group was split into 3 teams, each taking a different area. Our team was further split into pairs. So, it was my son and me, exploring for new outcrops. The sun was intense, the temperature hot, and hours of hiking and sta
