  1. I was in the area, so I made a very brief stop by the HMNS. I'll state up-front that this will be extremely dino-centric. What I saw was really great, they have a chronologically-organized display of animals from stromatolites to humans (I only made it to the Cretaceous). The lighting is very dramatic, so seeing it in person is much better than the dark photos portray (I did edit a few of them to enhance visibility). Lots of dynamic posing which is nice compared to other museums. Also, most specimens aren't behind glass, and you can get really close. I believe most of the skeleton
  2. Hey all Here in Auckland, we have a special visitor to our museum - Peter the Tyrannosaurus rex. As you'd probably guess, this is not a common sight for New Zealand so I had to check it out! I visited the (very modest) permanent display upstairs too and took some pics for you all to see The pic quality isn't the best, I didn't take my DSLR with me so it was all taken using my aging phone. There isn't much more to say, I'll let the pics do the talking.....

    Tyrannosaur dental ontogeny?

    From the album: Hell Creek / Lance Formations

    It's interesting to compare differently-sized teeth of similar positions. These might represent ontogeny or other dental variation (due to multiple species, etc.).

    T. rex tooth chunk

    From the album: Hell Creek / Lance Formations

    For most collectors, it's more affordable to have a piece of a T. rex tooth if you just want it represented. This one is clearly T. rex: it's theropod with serrations (this one has the basalmost portion of the mesial carina), very thick, and clearly would've had a large circumference. Note also the large angle made by the curvature of the tooth at the carina (not Nanotyrannus which have narrow, blade-like teeth).
  6. ThePhysicist

    Juvenile Tyrannosaur tooth

    From the album: Hell Creek / Lance Formations

    Sold by the BHI as Nanotyrannus lancensis. However, given the uncertain status of Nanotyrannus' validity, I chose to label it as Tyrannosaurid for now. It is interesting to compare to my other small Tyrannosaur teeth of the same/similar position. The base is clearly more compressed than my baby rex tooth (which is also smaller).
  7. ThePhysicist

    Juvenile Tyrannosaur tooth

    From the album: Hell Creek / Lance Formations

    A Tyrannosaur tooth from Eastern Montana. Given the basal "pinching," this would be Nanotyrannus lancensis if it's valid (otherwise it's T. rex). Interesting to compare it to my other small Tyrannosaur teeth. The tip was probably broken after fossilization, but the gouges on the labial face may be inflicted while the tooth was in use. Note that the enamel is well-preserved with sharply resolved texture and is still clear.
  8. Saskatchewan researchers have reportedly discovered an extensive network of blood vessels preserved in the fossil of a tyrannosaur rib. This discovery, if confirmed, would be the first of its kind.

    Juvenile Tyrannosaur tooth

    From the album: Hell Creek / Lance Formations

    Tyrannosauridae (Cf. Tyrannosaurus rex) Hell Creek Fm., Wibaux Co., MT, USA This minute tooth is indeed Tyrannosaur: the mc/dc serration densities are virtually identical, and the denticle shape is not like those of Dromaeosaurids. It also has a slight pathology near the tip.
  10. This was posted on FB by AAPS. It was written by the paleontologist Tom Carr who is an extremist on these matters and as expected its receiving quite a negative reaction on social media. George Winters indicated he is preparing an article to address an opposing view I don't have the paper for now just screen shots so if anyone can add anything please do.
  11. ThePhysicist

    T. rex tooth

    Identification This is a classic T. rex tooth. It's clearly Tyrannosaurid by its robusticity, similar serration densities on each carina (mesial carina counted by the "roots" of the denticles as they are completely worn off), and chisel-shaped serrations. Those qualities with its locality and formation mean it must be the one and only. Notes The Crown Height Ratio (CHR) suggests a posterior position (it's short and stout). There's evidence of wear on the tip and mesial carina.
  12. ThePhysicist

    Tyrannosaur tooth

    Identification Tyrannosaur teeth characteristically have similar serration densities on each carina, with chisel-shaped denticles. Though small, this tooth matches those qualities, and doesn't resemble other smaller theropods like Dromaeosaurids. Identified as Cf. T. rex based on its similarity to another, larger tooth in my collection. Notes This tooth is from a juvenile individual. Serration densities illustrated in the above photos. There is a slight pathology (bend) near the tip.

    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

    Tyrannosaur

    From the album: Hell Creek / Lance Formations

    Tyrannosauridae (Nanotyrannus-morph) Hell Creek Fm., Powder River Co., MT, USA A classic Nanotyrannus Tyrannosaur tooth: compressed and blade-like. Exceptional preservation, with a minor wear facet near the tip on the lingual side (indicating it's from the left maxilla). I really like the color.

  20. 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
  21. My first post on the forum was to see if anybody could show me an adult specimen of “Nanotyrannus.” I was more forceful in that approach because, from what I’ve seen on Twitter, “Nano” fans like to argue with paleontologists on the validity of the genus, even though these scientists have been studying dinosaurs for years and have degrees and Ph.Ds in different scientific fields. The evidence points them in a different conclusion compared to the public, and the fact that they are being so heavily resisted against with regards to this topic is baffling. I decided to play the “Nano” fans at their

  24. Hi all. I'd like to begin by thanking the members of this forum for the profound wealth of knowledge that you all have shared with me during my search for further understanding of dinosaurs, fossil collecting, and fossils in general. Prior to joining, I was a longtime lurker that regularly referenced this forum and its many posts to answer countless questions that I had, and I continue to reference it! The information contained on this site is invaluable. I would especially like to thank @Troodon for his amazing guides and detailed write-ups, such as the case made for Nanotyrannus. That really
