    Woodbine Nodosaurid?

    I got this a year or so ago, but this was bought as, possibly an ankylosaurian from the Woodbine Formation at Dallas Fort Worth Airport, Texas, USA. It is in pretty rough shape, so I don't expect the best results, but I'm hoping it is an indet. narrowed down to at least Ankylosauria. It looked like it could be a Nodosaurid indet. based on shape. A high chance of it being a complete bust, but I didn't spend much on it so it I figured it was worth the risk for a rare locale. Forgot to take a picture with a measurement, but it's roughly 4.5mm tall.

    Possible Ankylosaur or Nodosaur Osteoderm

    I have this piece of bone that due to the texture and shape I think might be an ankylosaur osteoderm. It also seems like it might have some predation, shown by the circled area. It's from the Lance fm of Weston Co. WY. Thanks for any help.
  3. Hey everyone. Last summer I found an interesting piece of late Cretaceous fossil bone with a unique texture in New Jersey. It was later identified as a Nodosaur osteoderm by Ralph Johnson. Dinosaur material in general is rare in New Jersey and this specimen to my knowledge is the second Nodosaur osteoderm found in the state of New Jersey. Recently, I had the pleasure of donating this specimen to the New Jersey State Museum. I am honored to be able to contribute this specimen to science for future generations to study. Here are photos of the specimen.

    New Jersey Nodosaur Osteoderm

    Recently I visited paleontologist Ralph Johnson. Ralph gave a tour of the MAPS (Monmouth Amateur Paleontologists Society) collection and shared his extensive knowledge of New Jersey Paleontology. I also brought a few of my finds from the late Cretaceous of New Jersey hoping Ralph could identify them. One of which was a piece of bone with an interesting texture and shape. Ralph identified this piece as the second nodosaur osteoderm found in New Jersey. We compared it with a cast of Ralph’s nodosaur scute and it was a match. Here are some photos of this specimen. I'm thrilled to have th

    Judith River Ankylosaur Teeth

    Hi all, A bulk purchase of channel deposit material from the Judith River Formation of Montana has yielded these teeth, each of which appears to have some ankylosaurian affinities. I have read @Troodon’s guide on this very topic, but alas I still would like a second look at some of these teeth. I do not have the capacity to take very good macro photos, but I hope that these are passable at least for an initial glance. The scale of each tooth. The numbering on the bottom is centimeters while the numbering on top is in inches Tooth 1: I’m 99% sure t
  8. Could anyone tell me if these are Nodosaur fossils? I found them on my property in Muncie Indiana. Google lens binged it as Nodosaur and upon searching, I found a very good picture of a 110 million yr old dinosaur fossil of the nodosaur. The count, shape, and placement of the spikes seem to be exactly the same. Although I am not that knowledgeable and very new to this.

    Ankylosaur tooth or nodosaur tooth?

    Hello! I recently bought this ankylosaur tooth (in fact it arrived today) and I was wondering if it could be from a nodosaur. Thank you! (Judith river formation hill county Montana)
  10. Hello . Is this tooth a Ankylosaur or a Nodosaur tooth ??? Locality : Hill county , Judith river formation Thank in advance !

    New additions to my collections!

    Hi everyone! I want to introduce some new additions to my teeth collections. 1. Nodosaur tooth from Judith River Formation This tooth is from Hill Co. Montana. Has nice set of serrations, and 10 mm wide. There are two genus of Nodosaur known from Judith River F. : Edmontonia and Palaeoscincus, thus, this is a Nodosaurid indet. 2. Pygmy sperm whale (Kogiopsis) tooth from Hawthorn Formation This tooth has no tip, but have enamel and root. This is slightly larger than 3 inch
  13. Hi, does anyone have or know where I can view images of a ankyloaurus/nodosaur foot but especially the ungals? Having a hard time finding images for a comparison.

    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.

    Osteoderm or Ironstone?

    This is a chunk I found in the Horseshoe Canyon Formation, specifically in the Horseshoe Canyon area. It’s shape and ridges look almost identical to a small Ankylosaur/Nodosaur osteoderm, but the texture suggests a random chunk of ironstone. I’m leaning towards ironstone, but I think there’s a chance it could be a really smooth osteoderm. Would any of you guys be able to tell for sure? Thanks!

    Nodosaur Tooth

    I was looking at a number of teeth in my collection and I had this labeled as an Ankylosaur tooth, but looking at it I am thinking it is a Nodosaur tooth. I know that this tooth came from Canada, but have no other info on it. @Troodon ?

    Ankylosaur or Nodosaur Scute ?

    One of my goals is to bring a very tactile element to our education programs. I think adding a piece of dino armor is going to be a real hit with the kids. I have been trying to brush up on ankylosaur and nodosaur scutes in preparation of getting one at some point in the near future. I am not to the level of being able to recognize them yet but I did see one in our price range. I am not sure about this one. The seller lists it as being from Hell Creek. It is 2.5"x1.5" and is 1/2 inch thick. Anybody have any thoughts about this one ?

    Hey hi Y'all, Noticed this piece in a reply to a thread. It was used as an example of an unusual preservation fossil. I have doubt as to whether it is a fossil, much less sure it is what it is identified as. So here is their picture and statement... All known nodosaurs were armored, but the impression fossil of the Propanoplosaurus baby doesn't appear to have any armor. What's going on? The hard, bony armor of nodosaurs was readily preserved and has been found associated with the bones of adults of all species, so the lack of armor on the baby's skeleton is surpr

    This is the only described Nodosaurid in the Hell Creek Formation at the moment. New discoveries may make it impossible to bring this tooth down to genus and species.
  22. In near-complete fossil form, only known Kansas dinosaur reappears after 100 million years. The Nodosaur Silvisaurus condrayi. Only part of the dinosaur ever was placed on exhibit at the museum, and that display was removed several years ago that changed this Spring. Interesting story to this cool dinosaur .....article starts as follows "In May of 1955, a Kansas rancher on horseback was checking on cows and calves near a dry “pasture ditch” that ran through his land in Ottawa County. In a gully, he spotted something strange — fragments of unusual bone embedded in a rock
