  1. Good morning fellow fossil hunters. I have the opportunity to purchase a partial triceratops skull. Below please find the photos. It allegedly has 15-20% restoration and is from Hell Creek. Here are the dimensions: from the top to the back of frill it is 39 inches, and the horns are 23 inches measuring from the inside. It’s 21 inches across and weighs about 100 pounds. It was found by a friend of a friend. Questions: how does it look to you? Is it a juvenile, as the size seems somewhat small to me, but perhaps that is because it is only a partial skull? It is quite expensive so, I wa

    Triceratops frill?

    This piece was found in wyoming and was prepped in the field, described as a section of triceratops frill, is that accurate?
  3. I was in Milwaukee for a concert last weekend and I decided that I should revisit the local natural history museum while I was there. The Milwaukee Public Museum was a childhood favorite of mine- it honestly left a stronger impression on me than the Field Museum, and there is one main reason for that: their incredible life-size reconstructions of prehistoric life. So that is where my focus for this report will be. The fossils on display were mostly casts, and nothing stood out to me as particularly notable. Near the entrance, the museum had a diorama showing paleontologists
  4. I've got another Triceratops frill piece coming my way soon. Just couldn't resist it, never seen one with so much detail and structure and so many blood grooves. Just love it. I was wondering considering the amount of blood grooves and the shape of it whether it could possibly come from the bottom part of the frill, close to the skull?

    Help with Hell Creek Bone

    Hoping someone can help me ID this bone from the Hell Creek Formation. When I received it a while back it was suggested to me that it could be part of a Triceratops beak, but I'm struggling to see it. Judging by the texture it does look like a piece of Triceratops skull though, so I was hoping someone familiar with trike skulls might be able to help me out.
  6. This piece of Triceratops frill is on its way to me and I was wondering about the darker residue you can see in the blood grooves. Is this just sand/sediment/matrix or could it be petrified remains of the blood vessels/veins? I'm just wondering if that is even possible.
  7. anyone identify this? It is roughly palm sized.

    Baby Triceratops Frill?

    Hi, We found this roughly 1" x 1" x 0.2" piece in a box of rock and dirt I ordered from the Lance formation in Weston co, Wyoming. Could this be a frill section from a baby Triceratops? Such a beautiful little thing, whatever it is.
  9. Purchased this piece in 2018, but now have concerns about its authenticity. Main area of concern is the base of the horn where the outer layer has chipped away to reveal a white-ish interior that looks a bit like cement/plaster. There is a slight glint to the white material. Any help is much appreciated + can upload more photos if necessary!

    Best triceratops tooth ever

    At 2 inch big, no wear, no repairs, no restoration, it is the best trice i have seen. Now in my collection! Sorry for dark photos, no more photos available.

    Lightning strike trike

    From the album: Dinosaurs

    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?
  13. 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.
  17. 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?
  19. 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!
  20. 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!
