  1. Given the success I had in the White River fm. the week before, my third and final outing of the summer was just icing on the cake to an already phenomenal fossil hunting session. But what I would come to find is that this figurative cake would be getting a massive dose of that sugary goodness, and man it felt sweet. This time around I would be joined by my best friend Michael (@Mickeyb06)who would be taking on his first ever fossil hunting adventure in Wyoming's Lance fm. While it wasn't my intention for this to be his first experience in the field, we made the most of it and it was gre
  2. Hello everyone, I would like to know if someone can help me identify if precisely these remains correspond to triceratops, or to some indeterminate ceratopsian at least. They all say they are from the Lance Formation, with no county, state, or anything. They are different types of bone, which I will detail below. 1. Sect of the jaw 2. Section of the upper jaw 3. Mandibular sect 4. Ungual, foot claw I await your comments, and thank you very much in advance.

    Avisaurus tooth

    From the album: Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    I found this tooth while looking through matrix from a productive conglomerate site while at home. At first I had no clue what it could be, but the consensus on its ID thread was that likely belonged to Avisaurus. While its hard to conceptualize birds with teeth from our modern perspective, that was the norm for many genera in the Cretaceous. Glad to have found this one and recognize it as a tooth.

    Pectinodon tooth

    From the album: Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    Another shot of the Pectinodon tooth featured earlier in this album, this specimen was found by my dad and is one of two Troodontid teeth in my collection.

    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.

    Bivalve

    From the album: Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    Most people think of dinosaurs when they hear Lance formation, but I've found that in many of its channel deposits, freshwater mollusks are incredibly common, like this bivalve.

    Coprolite

    From the album: Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    My first definitive coprolite from Wyoming, could belong to any assortment of animals so I won't slap a label on it to avoid being inaccurate.

    Lance Form. find, ceratopsian?

    Found this three years back in the Lance Formation. About 50 miles out of Newcastle, WY on a dig trip. Going through some bones I haven’t tried to ID. Any suggestions on this one? It has nice bone surface in a few spots, but isn’t familiar to me.

    Micro Claw-Lance fm.

    Hi everyone! I came across this little piece as I was sorting through some of the anthill matrix I brought back from Wyoming's Lance formation. When I first found it, I must not have recognized it as a partial claw as it ended up alongside other odds and ends (fragments of bone, gar scales & other misc. fossils) at the bottom of a pill bottle where I had deposited all of my pickings. This week, however, I emptied that pill bottle to see what was inside in order to organize all the micros I found from this locality (which will get its own post eventually). It's evident to me that this is a
  10. 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

    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.

    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.
  20. PrehistoricWonders

    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
  23. 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.

    Triceratops Lower Beak Section

    From the album: Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    One of my coolest finds from the Lance formation, I found this back in 2017 but this is the first time posting an image of it on the forum. Triceratops sp. Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian~ 66 mya) Lance formation

    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
