Hi I am currently preparing a bunch of associated bones from Morisson Formation. The fossils have been found near the town Shell. The finder identified the bones as Camptosaurus and I agree with the ID. The jacket contains two femuri, ribs, parts of hip bones as well as a phalanx. It seems that all bones belong to the same animal. However, I am not convinced regarding the phalanx. I think it may not belong to this individual (or Camptosaurus). The campto digits I saw so far looked quite a bit different. If it is not Campto what is it then? Below please find some pi
I have seen constant supply of dinosaur fossils from Hell Creek and Judith River... but not Morrison. I don't see any Allosaurus, Torvosaurus, and Ceratosaurus tooth from the market. Some Jurassic herbivore such as Diplodocus and Camarasaurus are available but not as frequently as Hell Creek herbivores. And I haven't seen any Stegosaurus material as well.. There's no commercial digger working in the Morrison Formation? or there is a legal issue? Or just because they are so rare?
jpc posted a topic in A Trip to the MuseumHey folks, thought I would share what I have been working on all week in my WorkFromHome Office/Lab. (Well, when I am not doing computer stuff). While the Tate (my employer) is closed we have been sent home to work. I brought a few fossils home to work on. The past two weeks I prepped a bunch of Lance Fm micros. I might show them off, but they are so tough to photograph well. This is this week's (and next) project... a Diplodocus skull from the Morrison Formation at the famous Como Bluff in southern Wyoming. We found this tucked into a group of tail bones.
