  1. Hi, I recently re-read Predatory Dinosaurs of the World, which has an appendix describing the energetics of theropods and other predatory dinosauromorphs (such as herrerasaurids), providing an equation — personally, I'm unsure of its validity — that allows the reader to work out estimated daily food consumption of predatory endotherms. Ever since, I have been tried and failed to locate an equivalent formula for herbivorous dinosaurs, or any other prehistoric animals for that matter. I was wondering if anyone here knew of something along those lines, although I have my doubts that s

    Is this a Camarosaurus tooth?

    Hello! I am interested in purchasing this sauropod tooth labeled as a Camarasaurus from Kaycee county Wyoming. This tooth looks very odd to me and doesn’t really look like a Camarasaurus. If it is a Camaroasaurus more information on the species and where the tooth was in the jaw would be great! Thank you!
  3. Paper by Phil Mannion et al. that supports the validity of the 24 recognized Sauropod species in the Morrison Formation. Some authors have suggested this number is well overestimated and represent growth series. https://royalsocietypublishing.org/doi/10.1098/rsos.210377

  5. An interesting article that discusses the “Golden Age” of sauropods, the Morrison Formation is reported to have yielded 13 genera and 24 species of sauropods. For collectors makes identification of teeth a pretty daunting task... Paper. https://giw.utahgeology.org/giw/index.php/GIW/article/view/42

    Sauropods in Canada?

    Hi I’m wondering are there any Sauropods found in Canada (Alberta)? Wouldn’t it be possible to have Sauropods in Canada? Is there anything found? Thank you!!
  7. A short paper and article on sauropod teeth from North Africa. Nothing new just more info.

    Bipedal Sauropods!

    Trackways in Texas show Sauropods may have waded on two front legs. Not the first time this has been seen either. I wonder if that's why brachiosaurus's front legs were so long? https://www.newscientist.com/article/2231408-dinosaur-tracks-seem-to-show-giant-sauropod-wading-on-two-front-legs/amp/
  9. Excellent video on the Morrison formation...its part one of a three part series. Recommended to all those interested in the late Jurassic of North America.. educational, good introduction to the Morrison Fm.....opinions offered in the video might not be shared by all paleontologists, but thats typical...enjoy its good https://t.co/pzMTB7wMOc?amp=1

    The Real Jurassic World Program

    Carter and I are starting to slowly begin work on a program that will be about Jurassic era Dinosaurs. We will not do this until the 2020/2021 school year and I am really pretty excited. We decided to stop pursuing other dinosaur fossils (except for a Hell Creek Anky/Nodo lol) so that we can start piecing this together. We have about 10 months to make this happen. Educationally speaking it will be awesome to focus a program on the Jurassic era and show kids what dinosaurs were really running around at this time. This presents some fun challenges for us as collectors. Morrison Forma

    Dinosaur eggs from Guizhou

    Are these dinosaur eggs? They are from Guizhou, China. About 18cm long. Possibly eggs of Sauropods?
  21. I've been reading a few papers on Sauropods and the topic of wear facets got me thinking. I own 30 plus Rebbachisaurus teeth and only two of them have labial wear facets. Every other tooth with a wear facet has a lingual wear facet. That doesn't really make any sense to me. For most sauropods with tooth to tooth contact, the upper teeth will have a lingual wear facet and the lower teeth will have labial. It could be that I just happen to own mostly upper teeth but I don't think so. Most every Rebbachisaurus tooth you see has a lingual wear facet. Any thoughts on that.
  22. Dinosaur material from Uzbekistan is becoming a bit more available to the collector. Most of the material being offered for sale are theropod teeth with the occasional claw, see my post from earlier this year. Sauropod material has yet to hit the market but my bet is that will change if there is a profit to be made. A new paper that will soon be published identifies teeth from several countries in Central Asia including Uzbekistan. The material shown below comes from the same towns and formation the theropod material comes from: The Bissekty Formation, Touronian in a

    Dino Flatulence

    Last year researchers published a paper suggesting that sauropod dinosaurs would have made a contribution to climate change in the Mesozoic by producing as much as 520 million tons of methane gas. However, little research has been done into the fossil sites where accumulations of coprolites are associated with sauropods proving that sauropods produced enough methane gas to warm the earth. Are there any fossil sites around the world where sauropod remains have been found in association with multiple coprolites? If so, then we might hypothesize that the biggest flatulence by sauropod dinosaurs m
