  1. Dromaeosaur tooth?

    Hi all, I found this tooth in a locality where the formations of the Black Creek Group are present in Eastern North Carolina. The Black Creek Group contains the Tar Heel Formation, the Bladen Formation, and the Donoho Creek Formation. These formations are late Cretaceous and range from early Campanian to early Maastrichtian. Dinosaur fossils are known from this locality, including hadrosaurs, tyrannosaurs, and dromaeosaurs. This locality primarily preserves marine fossils, such as shark teeth and crocodile teeth and bones, but also dinosaur material. There are serrations on the tooth, however, I am not sure my camera can capture those. I believe that I need a different lens for that much magnification. Would love to hear thoughts about this tooth. I would be happy to provide any additional photos or information that may be missing. Thanks!
  2. Hi guys, I have bought some undetermined dinosaur teeth from Morocco. I know determination is very difficult with maroc Theropod teeth, but I am curious what your opinions are. The teeth are found in the Tegana formation from the Kem Kem deposits. Note: I know that the fossil in the right top is a chew plate from a generic fish. Kind regards,
  3. Finally got a nice raptor tooth

    So since I started collecting fossils, I've been trying to get a nice complete raptor tooth. I bought my first dinosaur teeth (Moroccan theropod tooth and 2 partial raptor from Hell Creek) back in May 2015. Last week, I finally found and bought a beautiful little raptor tooth from Hell Creek Here it is
  4. Dromaeosaur Metatarsal

    Partial metatarsal of a Theropod dinosaur. Probably from a Dromaeosaurid. Very similar to metatarsal II and IV of Velociraptor.
  5. Hi there! I was just wondering if anyone has experience buying and selling dinosaur tooth fossils. I was looking to purchase my first dinosaur tooth as a gift. Many prices on sites can be extremely pricey, I was taking a look on ebay and the prices are relatively cheap for what I'm looking for. I was wondering how to tell whether or not these are authentic tooth fossils. If someone could give me their opinion on purchasing a tooth I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
  6. Odd Hell Creek tooth

    Hi, A short while ago, my wife and I collected in a Hell Creek location on a private ranch in SE Montana. Associated finds were Nanotyrannus teeth, Triceratops teeth, as well as a few Hadrosaur and Triceratops bones. My wife found an unusual tooth. It is about 1 cm in length, curved in lingually, curved to the posterior, and it is serrated on the posterior edge. The denticles have a pronounced upward (towards the tip) direction, and the spacing between denticles is greater toward the base of the tooth. On the lingual face, there are pronounced ridges. From a recent post, I am considering Pectinodon or Troodon, as remote possibilities, but the denticles are not so large, oddly spaced, and there are the pronounced ridges. Any ideas? Thanks. Mark
  7. Raptor tooth

    Tooth of a velociraptorine raptor. Specifically the serrations of the tooth are typical of Saurornitholestes.

  9. I recently got a copy of the Princeton Field Guide to Dinosaurs and decided to attempt to model a Velociraptor skeleton, maybe 3d print it once its done. Unfortunately the book doesn't include any front or back views of the skeleton so I would love some anatomical feedback. In addition, I could use a little help identifying the bones in red in this image: They aren't visible in the top view I have, so I don't know how they are supposed to connect with the rest of the rib cage.
  10. Hello, I have been wanting to purchase this raptor claw. Would just like to ask if this is an authentic fossil. thanks!
  11. Hey guys, I came across this Hell Creek claw for sale and I really want it if it is in fact from a dromaeosaur. The seller labeled it as a velociraptor claw, which of course I know it isn't. Velociraptors are from Mongolia, are very rare, and are illegal to export. Anyways, it is from Hell Creek. Do you claw experts think it is a theropod dino claw, even further, a raptor claw? I will add more pictures when the seller sends me more. Help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  12. Do any of you guys have any Utahraptor fossils or have seen any Utahraptor fossils?
  13. Does anyone know where to buy a raptor killing claw and how much they cost? I've tried searching it it on google and ebay, but the only thing that comes up is replicas
  14. Theropod Toe Bone Or Turtle Bone?

    Hi, I bought this raptor toe bone a few weeks ago. The website said that it is from an unidentified theropod, likely Acheroraptor. Troodon informed me about how not much material has been found of Acheroraptor. And also he said that my bone looks more like a turtle bone than a theropod bone. I think that he's probably right. I just want to hear some more opinions about it. It is from the Hell Creek Formation. Let me know what you guys think!
  15. Moroccan Raptor Tooth

    Hi, I have this "Raptor" tooth from Morocco and it says its Deltadromeus, but I know it's not that because no skeletal material has yet been found. And I'm just wondering if it is from some kind of raptor. I know that there hasn't been any raptor skeletal material found in Morocco, just teeth. Based on the pictures, does the tooth look Dromaeosaurid? Is it still from a raptor? I can post more pictures if needed. Thanks
  16. Is This A Claw?

    I was on a family trip in Missouri. We were staying on Table Rock Lake in the Ozarks, and I stumbled upon what appeared to be fossilized bones. I am by no means an expert, and I'll be the first to admit that my imagination is very active, but I can't shake the feeling that this is something very interesting. As I was rifling through the pieces, I found what appears to be a hooked claw, though I am trying to remain sceptical. It's not in great shape, and is broken in pieces, but if it turned out to be a claw, that would be very exciting. I would greatly appreciate any help in identifying this piece. Thanks!
  17. I recently acquired some Hell Creek Dromaeosaur teeth specimens and examined them just to study their features and get to know them more. Most of the teeth have the rather re-curved and compressed bladed shape with different size of serrations on the interior and anterior serrations until I ran into a few teeth that seem to have a fatter and more conical, with serration on only on the interior side but seem to have no serration on the anterior side. Upon closer examination with the loupe, It doesn't look like it's worn out or anything, just doesn't seem to be there. Here is the Dromaeosaur tooth I am talking about: I have read from somewhere I can't remember now that some Tyrannosaur teeth in certain mouth positions may not have serration such as the triangular-shaped teeth that are often marked as Aublysodon. Plus, when I compared the strange dromaeosaur tooth to one of my small Nanotyrannus tooth that I have (this one was I.D. by CK Preparation to be Nanotyrannus rather than Dromaeosaur) it seem to have a lot in similarity at least from as much as I can tell and assuming that the Nanotyrannus baby tooth I have is really Nanotyrannus. Here is the presumed Nanotyrannus tooth that I have for comparison: So I am wondering, if my dromaeosaur may have been a misidentified baby Tyrannosaur tooth, or there really are Dromaeosaur teeth that have serration on only on the interior side, and perhaps what I really thought is a baby Nanotyrannus tooth is really another off-shoot of the variety of Hell Creek Dromaeosaur teeth? Any insight from Hell Creek theropod experts that could shine a light on my curiosity would be greatly appreciated. Thx

  22. Bone Valley Bird Bone Id Requested.

    This bird bone was found in Bone Valley. I was told that it is from a raptor/bird of prey, and would like to find out more about what it was from. I have one more photo that I will add in the first comment. -Bill H.
  23. Dinosaur Vertebra - Dromaeosaur?

    Hello guys. I´m always eager to expand my fossil collection, and recently got the opportunity to buy this one. On the website it is listed as: "Vertebra from dinosaur, probably from raptor/dromaeosaur spec. Good condition, no repair and no restoration. 27 mm long Weight 11 gram Cretaceous Approx 90 myo Tegana, Kem Kem, Morocco" And here´s the images: So, for the reason of the thread, here´s my question to the experts around here: Is there anything distinguishable on this thing that can tell that this fossil is from a dromaeosaur (or even a dinosaur) at all? Help would be highly appreciated. /Sebastian

  25. Bambiraptor Skeleton Project

    So I was working on a Parasaurolophus and Dodo skull before. For my next project I've chosen Bambiraptor. It was nice to try something really small this time. Though it's quite hard to make some of the smaller details with such a soft material. Carved from foam. I'm mostly done with the skull. Just need to finish up the teeth and jaw. Parts of the appendicular skeleton so far. Stay tuned for updates.
