    Lightning strike trike

    Plant roots often intrude upon a fossil's resting place, leaving behind white streaks when removed.

    Triceratops brow horn section?

    Hi, This didn't come in the mystery box, but maybe I can find a way to sneak it in... It's from the Hell Creek formation, Wibaux county, Montana. I'm thinking it's a section of Triceratops/Torosaurus brow horn, what do you think?
  3. Hi! I bought this piece a few months ago and just wanted to make sure it is what they tell me it is. Apparently it's a Triceratops horridus vertebra pedicle from the Hell Creek Formation of Dawson County, Montana.

    Is this a triceratops bone?

    Hi everyone! I'm new here and am hoping to find out if the item I have is indeed a triceratops bone from the Hell Creek formation (as it was labeled). When I look at photos of fossilized bones, I see the bone's "spongy" look and all the photos I've looked at to compare do NOT look like this item. Therefore, it seems to perhaps not be a bone, but it does seem to be something fossilized. I apologize for the less-than-crisp focus abilities of my phone camera, but as you hopefully can see there is what looks to me like skin or scale patterns and a lack of spongy-ness. If anyone has insi

    Juvenile Triceratops tooth

    From the album: Hell Creek / Lance Formations

    Sold as Triceratops sp. by the BHI. Normally, Ceratopsid teeth should be considered indeterminate since the teeth of the large-bodied Ceratopsids present in the Hell Creek fauna are virtually indistinguishable. Trusting the ID of the BHI would be to label it as Triceratops sp., but to be conservative (and since I don't know their reasoning behind the ID), I chose to label it as Ceratopsidae cf. Triceratops sp.
  7. I sculpt scale model dinosaur skulls (and more) on a popular 3D printing service. I put a lot of research and effort into getting these as accurate as I can. These are my personal copies, painted in acrylic with D.I.Y stands.

    Possible triceratops nose horn

    Found this piece associated with weathering bone chunks embedded in sandstone. My first thought was nose horn but the horn portion looks like it might be a sandstone cast of the inside of the horn. Location Glendive montana, hell creek. What do you guys think?
  9. Hello Fossil Forum, this is on auction as a nose horn of a juvenile Triceratops horridus. It’s from the Hell Creek FM of Montana. What do you think about it’s preservation? I like it's look and surface structure but there’s not much online to compare with. According to the sellers (which I had pleasant deals with before, all items as described) it’s without restoration or repair. Do you think it’s indeed from T. horridus or more likely T. prorsus? Thanks!

    New Dinosaur book

    Just a notice about a new book about the extinction of the dinosaurs and other organisms at the end of the Cretaceous, "The Last Days of the Dinosaurs," by Riley Black. I saw it in a local Barnes & Noble yesterday and read the blurb on the book jacket. I didn't get a chance to really leaf through it.
  11. Here is a paper about the privately owned Triceratops Big John. He probably died from battle injuries. This is noteworthy for being a scientific article published on a privately owned fossil. A professional can let us know if the authors did a good job and if the publication is respected by paleontologists. I have never heard of Scientific Reports. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-022-08033-2 D’Anastasio, R., Cilli, J., Bacchia, F. et al.

    Triceratops Vertebra?

    I found this listed as a partial Triceratops caudal vertebra. It's only a partial though. Is it Triceratops, or could it be Edmontosaurus? Only location that the seller listed is Hell Creek Formation. Here are the pictures. Thanks for any help.

    Ceratopsian spitter

    This tooth (16 mm) was advertised as a Triceratops tooth from Hell Creek. I believe this is what they call a ceratopsian spitter and it could belong to several species, but I am not entirely sure. Can you say without a doubt that this is ceratopsian? Just wanted to double check here to be sure, as I bought it as a present. Thanks!

    Torosaurus Frill from Canada

    The validity of Torosaurus has frequently been brought into question. Here Jordon Mallon et al. determine that a frill section from Canada is most plausibly attributable to Torosaurus Conclusion: "leads us to conclude that Torosaurus is a valid genus, and is not simply a mature growth form of Triceratops" https://academic.oup.com/zoolinnean/advance-article/doi/10.1093/zoolinnean/zlab120/6540273#.Yh5Tx3f8XyY.twitter
  16. Please do not leave online shop names in the comments, dm me if you want I have tried to find teeth of these two species for more than a year yet they never appear,used to see them online everywhere,is there something going on with the fossil quarries?

    Triceratops upper maxila?

    Hello, Thoughts on this? Labeled as Triceratops upper maxila from Hell Creek, Dakota. 23cm x 9 x 6 cm thick, 2.5 lbs. Unfortunately, the card is all the info there is --- been sold by someone from an old collection. Any thoughts would be great.

    Triceratops material

    Years ago I purchased a Triceratops brow horn that I was told collapsed when the jacket was flipped. There is some material that didn't look the same and I was wondering if it was material from another part of the animal.
  19. Hi everyone, I wanted to get some opinions on this piece I found in Montana's Hell Creek formation this past summer. My initial thoughts were that it was a ceratopsid skull fragment. It was a fossil I was planning on selling, but before I do I wanted to rule out the possibility that it was a piece of ankylosaur osteoderm as I have significantly less material from that clade of dinosaurs. The dimensions are about 8 cm by 7 cm.

    A Physicist's Collection

    While my prime focus is essentially learning how to accurately describe Nature in the precise language of mathematics, I've always been intrigued by natural history - it's actually what started me on the path to physics. The sort of interrogation that paleontology practices provoked me to think and question even further, down to the fundamental science which makes it all work. Collecting fossils has brought a large amount of enjoyment to my life, and is often a welcome distraction from what can sometimes be straining work. The knowledge that I accumulate along the way is also part

    Ceratopsid shed teeth

    From the album: Hell Creek / Lance Formations

    Ceratopsidae (shed/"spit" teeth) Hell Creek Fm., Powder River Co., MT, USA Labeled as "Ceratopsidae" because there are two valid genera currently known from Hell Creek: Triceratops and Torosaurus - whose teeth are indistinguishable. You commonly see teeth like these sold as "Triceratops" spitters, but this is not necessarily a correct identification.

    Triceratops prorsus

    From the album: Hell Creek / Lance Formations

    Triceratops prorsus Hell Creek Fm., Harding Co., SD, USA More information
  24. The title says it all. It’s a nice tooth, but I’m going back and forth on it because the telltale wear patterns for either group are not present as far as I can see. I apologize for the poor quality of my camera phone picture.
