  1. I'd found this small partial tooth about a half an inch long, it looks like it is a theropod tooth and it has a strange wear facet thing at the bottom. I was wondering if I could get some advice on what this tooth is and what the strange wear facet is. Here are the pics. Thanks for any help

    Dromaeosauridae

    From the album: Hell Creek / Lance Formations

    Dromaeosauridae (Cf. Acheroraptor temertyorum) Hell Creek Fm., Carter Co., MT, USA Acheroraptor's dentition is known incompletely, so it's possible this tooth is from Acheroraptor. Until more material is described, this tooth will remain indeterminate. There may be slight facets, but I'm not confident that's what I'm seeing.

    Acheroraptor temertyorum

    From the album: Hell Creek / Lance Formations

    Acheroraptor temertyorum Hell Creek Fm., Garfield Co., MT, USA A Velociraptorine tooth with the diagnostic longitudinal ridges Acheroraptor is known for. This tooth has some wear on the tip and root etching at the base. Art by Emily Willoughby

    Acheroraptor tooth

    Identification A. temertyorum is characterized by the typical Dromaeosaurid traits (compressed, recurved, differing mc/dc serration densities), and longitudinal ridges/facets on the crown face. Notes This tooth was found this past Summer ('21), and in the same county as the holotype specimen.
  5. Hi TFF, I am a Dromaeosauridae enthusiast and have been collecting online for a little while now. I want to thank the members here for getting me educated on so many aspects of fossil teeth identification. I want to share my small collection in the hopes this is helpful for some of you in the future. Your critical input is highly appreciated, as always! #1 First up, one of my treasures, a robust Deinonychus antirrhopus tooth from the Cloverly Fm. A big thanks to @StevenJD for letting go of this one – much appreciated! Note the asymmetry in the placement of the carinae

    Mongolia tooth?

    Hi picked this up at a mineral show over weekend here in Taiwan. It was sold as tooth from Djadochta, if anyone can take a look? Hope photos are ok. It is small, 4mm. So its tricky to get a pic, also hindered by my essential tremor.

    Hell creek theropod tooth

    I have this tooth that i believe to be a small nanotyrannus but i just want to get confirmation so let me know what you think everyone. Its from the Hell Creek Formation. Garfield Ct. Montana. Its CH is 11 mm Serration count: Distal 12 per 3 mm Mesial 15 per 3 mm The base of this tooth is beat up so its impossible to see if it would have had that rectangular pinch that is characteristic of nano teeth. There seems to be no twist of the mesial carinae In my opinion the serrations look peg like as seen in nano teeth.

    Deinonychus tooth?

    Hey was wondering what you guys think of this “Deinonychus” tooth? Info provided was Cloverly Formation, Montana, Cretaceous 105 myo. Those are also only the 2 photos available at the moment. Just looking at it now, one side of the tooth (nit the side with the bigger serrations) look quite worn. But i think i can make out some bumps in the first pic? So if they are serrations, the side with the more prominent serrations does look a lot larger? Thanks!

    Montana fossils

    Hello, I recently acquired a small box of fossils from someone who had passed away recently. Inside were many fossils including those pictured. The only indicator of where they are from is that the box says "MONTANA". I can tell there are dromeosaur teeth, hadrosaur teeth, ankylosaur teeth and such. I know the man I got them from would routinely dig in the hell creek formation but I just wanted to make sure there wasn't anything obvious that I'm missing that would indicate that these fossils were collected elsewhere. My guess is that they are from the hell creek formation however.
  11. Hello! I inherited this piece with the idea that it could possibly be a space rock. I checked the magnetism and it has no magnetic properties whatsoever. After closer examination with an open mind and a little imagination, I see a petrified baby dinosaur laid on its side with its neck possibly broken at the base of the skull. Below what looks like the neck is a split section that looks like a chest cavity with a arm/leg on either side. . The strangest part is that there seems to be the head of another species resting on the side of the laid do

    Hell Creek Microsite Tooth

    Hey everyone, Got the chance to explore the Hell Creek this summer and I've got a few questions on what I've found. The first is this tooth. I found it at a microsite in the Hell Creek Formation of Montana. It's about 1/2 inch long. I tried getting some up close shots of it, but if y'all need any better photos, just let me know. Thanks for you help in advance!

    Possible Dromaeosauridae Tooth?

    I was just offered this "raptor" tooth, but I'm not real big on unidentified teeth, so I'll post a couple photos and see what you guys think... I don't see any serrations on it, so..... Species: Dromaeosaurid indet.? Formation: Lance Formation Location: Niobrara County, Wyoming Age: 69-66 mya, Cretaceous This is an authentic theropod tooth from the Lance Formation of Wyoming. This tooth has no restoration or repairs, and has pretty well preserved enamel.
  15. Fast. Intelligent. Deadly. The "Raptor" is perhaps one of the most famous dinosaur today thanks to Jurassic Park. To many people's surprise however, raptors are heavily feathered and nimbler than movies would have you believe. The Jurassic Park Velociraptor was merely the size of coyote in real life! In fact, their proper family name is 'Dromaeosaurid'. The largest species was Utahraptor, and it grew to the size of a grizzly bear! Dromaeosaurid fossils have been found all over the world. They first appeared during the Cretaceous, though isolated teeth have been found in the mid-Jurassic. Allow
  16. I recently got offered a nest of 3 oviraptor eggs in what I think is great condition. I trust the source I’m getting it from but I wanted to run it by you guys to double check that they’re authentic. let me know what you think!

    Oviraptor eggs

    The Oviraptor eggs I previously posted about finally got here! These were pretty expensive so I just wanted to see what you guys think about them and double check they’re authentic now that I have some better photos. I also included a few close up pictures I took. If you need any other pics or info let me know Weight: 9 lb 6.5 oz (426 g)
  18. Hey everyone, Via via I've bought this partial dinosaur raptor skeleton from the Jiangxi formation, China. Comes from an old collection. There is no more information than it being Jiangxi formation, and it exists of multiple pieces. We've got some bones, a claw, and a row of teeth. The big matrix with the claw and the partial skull + bones measures about 14 X 13 cm. Would anyone have a clue on the species of this Dino? If there is any more information you'll guys need, let me know

    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

    Dromaeosauridae distal serrations

    From the album: Dinosaurs

    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

    Dromaeosaurus albertensis Tooth

    This is my first attempt at getting a Dromeosaurus albertensis tooth from Judith River fm. I've largely been avoiding buying dromeosaurids like the plague that aren't Acheroraptor or Saurornitholestes. Provenance: Hill County, Montana The tooth is repaired, and I had to realigned it while restabilizing it with butvar. The tooth doesn't seem to perfectly fit together, or too much butvar ended up in-between. There does not appear to be any serrations on the mesial edge, and it doesn't appear to have any trace of serrations, at least not that I can see with a macroscope.

    Utah - Dinos (Raptor + ?)

    Hello All! Found a pocket of dino in the Moab area of Utah. I'm confident one is a raptor, but I may be wrong. The other I am not sure about. For reference, they were right around the corner from each other in the same pocket. Just a note - these are WAY off the beaten path in an area very few people would be able to get to. Quite frankly I was surprised to find them in this material as opposed to conglomerate like most of my other finds. Thanks in advance for your help!
