    Is this an ankylosaur tooth?

    I found this in some matrix from the Lance Formation in Wyoming and wondered if it is an ankylosaur tooth. The hash marks are 1mm. Thanks for any help.
  2. I'll be honest, I've put off writing this trip report for far too long. Between work, school and general procrastination I have delayed this post for over 7 months. Perhaps there's a silver lining to me writing this in the middle of winter, it could act as a nice break from the grey & cold conditions many of us are facing this season. Hopefully you all enjoy a dose of warmth from a trip which I enjoyed greatly. Ok ready? Let's go. My morning started around 4:30, ungodly hours for me generally, but I woke up excited for what lay ahead. Less than a half hour later we were on our w

    Lance Formation potential claw

    Hello, my name is Michael and I'm from New Hampshire. This past summer I was hunting with PaleoProspectors in Wyoming with my best friend @PaleoNoel in mostly the White River and Lance formation. One day in the Lance formation we found what appears to be a piece of claw from an Ornithomimid. It looks like the leftmost claw of the foot with a gradual curve and a large groove running down the side possibly due to erosion. I'd love to hear if anybody has any ideas on what this could be and I'd greatly appreciate an ID. The width is 1.7 cm at the base and 1.0 cm at the top. It is 2.6 cm long.

    Another Lance fm. Tooth

    This past summer's trip to Wyoming provided no shortage of interesting and bizarre finds. This tooth was found at a channel deposit in the Lance fm. and is about 5 mm in length and 2 mm in width. It appears to be a theropod tooth based on the overall morphology, but lacks serrations unlike the all the non avian theropods in the formation. I'm not sure if the serrations were worn off or were never there in the first place. Or perhaps based on the small size it belonged to a young individual with developing teeth. The theropod it most closely resembles in my opinion is Richardoestesia, as it's o

    Lance fm. Potential Varanoid Tooth?

    Hi everyone, I found this small tooth over the summer in a Lance formation channel deposit in Wyoming. In the field I didn't know what to make of it, too recurved and compressed to be croc, no visible serrations either so probably not a non avian theropod. Months later I took a closer look at it and continued to search for its potential identity. I thought to myself could it be a mammal canine. After some online browsing I couldn't find a match for anything in the Hell Creek/Lance fauna. However, after posting it on an instagram story, I got a few suggestions. One of the more intriguing of tho

    Odd Lance fm. Vertebra

    I found this odd vertebra in Wyoming's Lance fm. over the summer. I was told by a guide that it may be a turtle cervical vertebra, but I wanted to see what other forum members thought. It's about 1.5 cm long and around 1.3 cm in width.

    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

    Potential Ankylosaurian Osteoderm

    I found this interestingly pitted piece of bone in Wyoming's Lance formation over the summer and my initial thoughts were ankylosaurian osteoderm. I've been wrong in the past with various Ceratopsid skull elements deceiving me, but I am hopeful to add this to my comparatively short list of remains from these living tanks. I'd appreciate any feedback from my fellow forum members. Dimensions are about 8 cm in length, 5 cm in width, ~3 cm in depth.

    Dermal Denticle? Lance fm. Wyoming

    Hi everyone. I found this little fossil recently while working through a sandy conglomerate matrix I brought back from this summer's hunt in Wyoming's Lance fm. I believe it's a dermal denticle from some variety of cartilaginous fish, my first guess would be the Hybodont shark Lonchidion, but the guitarfish Myledaphus is also incredibly common in these sediments, however I haven't seen any pictures of denticles belonging to the latter or close relatives. It's about 2 mm long and about 1.5 mm tall. I would love to hear some input. Thanks, Noel

    Possible theropod bone

    Hi everyone, this is a dinosaur bone I’ve been prepping, it was found on the lance fm in WY, it seems hollow and I was wondering if you could tell me if it’s a T-rex bone or a different theropod species, 8 1/4 by 3 1/2 TIA.

    Associated? Bones?

    Hi all, sorry for the long post, in advance! I purchased these unprepped with some other stuff, but these bones have lines running thru these that almost looks like quartz? Is it glue that you can put on in the field? The pics don’t do it justice at all, it’s a translucent blueish green, second question I’ve got is, are they associated? They don’t seem to fit together, but they are all the same Color of bone and all the same color of line going thru it? Last question, if they’re are associated what did they come from, and what bones are they? @Troodon @jpc @hadrosauridae. TIA

    Didn't do the lick test on this one

    I found this odd little pebble in the Lance fm. in Wyoming over the summer and have yet to post on the forum so I thought I'd do so tonight. Anywhere else I probably wouldn't have kept it, but since I found it in a dinosaur bearing formation I was thinking it had the potential to be a gastrolith as it's completely smooth and rounded along with being a different color than most of the surrounding sediment I found it in, possibly hinting at transportation from its origin. I'd like to know your thoughts as I think it would be really cool to have found a dinosaur gastrolith. It's also not a p
  14. Hi y'all. Inspired by Marco sr's post of his Riker Mounts a few weeks ago, here are a few of mine. These are all 6 inch by 4 inch Rikers. I took the glass off some to avoid reflections. If anyone wants to see better pix of any of these, let me know. Start with a pile of Lance Fm (late Cretaceous of Wyoming) bones and teeth. There are too many fossil in all of this to ID them all, so I will just label a few of my faves. If you want more IDs, just ask. Top left, two Leptoceratops teeth. The brown ones below the right Lepto tooth are baby hadrosaur teeth.

    Possible Leptoceratops tooth?

    I found this little tooth crown at a conglomerate site in the Lance formation a couple weeks ago on my fossil hunting excursion with Paleoprospectors. I wasn't sure what it belonged to, at first I thought it was a small Triceratops crown but under further examination I think it could belong to another herbivore. I looked at @Troodon's post on Leptoceratops from hell creek and saw similarities to the maxillary teeth. I wanted to know what some of the dino people thought about mine. It broke when I was trying to prep it out so the sheen is from the glue I used to put it
  17. Today was the last day spent in Wyoming and one of the most productive. This collecting area was definitely the most scenic among the spots we visited this week with a view of a wide open grassy valley with trees lining the Little Cheyenne River. I found a channel deposit site which had been worked in years past but had not been touched recently. I remained at this spot for the duration of the day, splitting through the conglomerate. The most abundant fossils were gar scales which appeared practically every split. I collected a number of small alligator teeth, myledaphus ray teeth and tr
  18. Another day hunting in Wyoming's Lance formation proved more successful than yesterday. Due to the high amount of rain Wyoming has been facing this year, many would be exposures were grassed in. We started at a channel deposit which was producing a number of bone pieces. Although bones were relatively plentiful, there were no spectacular finds with the best being a thescelosaurus vertebra found by another member of the group. My best find from this hillside was a section of Triceratops jaw, a partial crown found in the conglomerate where the fossils were eroding from. and some variety of small

    Reconsidering this ID

    Hi everyone, I posted this vertebra a while back and the consensus was crocodilian, however after looking online at some varanid vertebrae (namely palaeosaniwa) I see a resemblance between the two. I want to know what people think. Below are what I found online.
  20. Closer inspection to my collection of bone pieces from trips to the Lance formation in Wyoming has resulted in me wondering if I had a few pieces of Ankylosaur osteoderm in my possession. I want to know what the folks on the forum think.

    Lance Fm. IDs

    Hey all, I found these over the summer in Wyoming's lance formation (Maastrichtian, upper cretaceous). I was hoping for some input on these specimens. First I believe is a small champsosaur vert, the front has a piece chipped off, but it measures 7 mm front to back and about 11 mm wide. Second I'm not so sure on, it's vaguely shaped like a coprolite which would be nice and would make it the second I found on this trip. It seems like it may be geologic. It measures 3.5 cm from top to bottom and has a diameter of about 1 cm.
  22. Sorry for the long wait for this post. I said I was going to do a write up for it in the days following my return, then once again in October and then after I had finished my trip report from my 2016 trip to Maryland's Potomac River back in December, but alas I never got to it. But now I'm finally sitting down to write about my experience from my week spent fossil hunting in Wyoming's badlands. I flew out of Boston in the morning of July 13th and landed in Denver by around mid-day. My parents got the rental car and we were on our way to eastern Wyoming. It was dinner ti

    Bowfin Jaw Section?

    After looking through some of the material I brought back from this past summer's trip to Wyoming's Lance fm. I realized I had an odd little piece which I recognized as a section of jaw from something. After some digging I believe it's from some variety of amiid fish.

    Theropod Claw Confirmation

    And now my last fossil for the night, one of my favorite fossils in my collection ever is the theropod claw my dad found (I always give credit when he's the discoverer) in the Lance fm. of Wyoming the summer before last. It was identified by the guide as potentially being a Nanotyrannus hand claw but I wanted to confirm that with other members on TFF. It's about 2.5 cm in length.
