  1. Fossil?

    Hiya! Wentout today to look out for fossils for the first time. Stumbled upon what seems to look like some type of vertebra on a river bank? Not entirely sure if it's a fossil at all, since there were lots of deer bone fragments in the vicinity too. Looks to be a little older though?
  2. 3.75" tyrannosaurid tooth. Indet.?

    Fossil tyrannosaurid tooth found last weekend. 2nd largest one I have found and largest in the area by at least an inch. Formation is belly river group. I believe i is out of dinosaur park formation layers and possibly mix of oldman and foremost formations. I'm thinking gorgosaurus or daspletosaurus???
  3. Claw fossil. Microraptor ?

    Hey, just curious if anyone might help out on this ID. Hysperonychus? Sourornitholestes?
  4. Unknown tooth from Oldman formation

    Hi, I found this little gem in Southern Alberta. Any ideas about what creature it looks like it might belong to?
  5. What is this?

    So I have posted some of the amazing petrified bones I have found from a special excavation site. I do not know what dinosaur it is, but it is huge. These were found off of a riverbank, in Edmonton Alberta and I have hundreds from the same site. I believe one picture is of a horn? Maybe another is vertebrate from a back? Any input please. Here is 2 more
  6. I am new to this so excuse my lack of terminology. I am looking for help identifying what this is. I picked it up next to a excavation sight that I have pulled hundreds of bones from. I have also found many primitive stone tools in the same location. I found what appeared to be a primitive tool. Upon closer examination I have discovered the top half covered in a leather like impression. I am not certain that this is a tool, or a bone but I am under the assumption that this is a impression of skin on this object. Any information will be helpful. I will be posting pictures of the amazing bones I have collected in hopes of identifying what dinosaur I have. This was collected in the north Saskatchewan river, just off of the shore.
  7. Hi i was hoping someone could identify this tooth from near Medicine Hat AB. I found it along hadrosaur spitters and turtle carapace fragments. Lots of fossils in the area but this is unique.
  8. Tyrannosaur tooth

    From the album Dinosaur teeth

    Tyrannosaur indet. Campanian (80 million years ago) Two Medicine Formation Drumheller, Alberta, Canada
  9. Another very successful trip to the Little Smoky River this year north of Valleyview, Alberta. River levels had finally receded and we were lucky to be one of the first to pick the banks for exposed baculites. They are mostly fragmented and I have yet to find a complete specimen. No matter the size their colours are brilliant from silvery white, blues, reds and greens. The shimmery colour catches your eye when they are wet and at the waters edge.

  12. Phlange?

    Hi - I am new here and found this on the bank of the Red Deer River today. I have pulled elk and bison bones out in the same area - this looks older to me. Can anyone tell me anything about it?
  13. Tyrannosaurid tooth

    Tooth of a Tyrannosaurid. This tooth belongs to either Albertosaurus, Gorgosaurus or Daspletosaurus. Note the wear facets on the top and medial side of the tooth.
  14. Exciting new fossil in the Peace Country By Derek Larson, Dino News & Views Daily Herald Tribune, July 6, 2017 http://www.dailyheraldtribune.com/2017/07/06/exciting-new-fossil-in-the-peace-country Yours, Paul H.
  15. Hey everyone. So I am new to fossil hunting. Like completely new. I am taking a geology class and one of my assignments includes going fossil hunting! So fun. I have gone out twice and feel like I'm having no luck. However at the last minute I came across this. I am really not sure if it's just rock or something more. Since I am completely new at this hoping someone can help me. Thanks in advance for any insight.

  17. As above. After the silly Alioramus(?) locality mistake I made, I have taken on the colossal and necessary task of auditing all my locality info. Here's an area that has me stumped. Does anyone know if there's any late Cretaceous dino-bearing formations in Drumheller besides Horseshoe Canyon?
  18. A stroll in the Alberta Badlands

    Hello, Went into the Alberta badlands (Dinosaur Park Formation) last week for some fossil hunting. Usually I'm enjoying myself so much I rarely take pictures but I forced myself on this day to stop and take a few. Walking into the coolies. Another shot of the badlands, what do they contain? Some of the hills are very fossil rich. See anything good? Closer look... Big bones all over (mostly Hadrosaur leg bones) Another broken femur tip.. My finds of the day (Hadrosaur toe bones, Ornithomimus claw/toe bone, Misc verts, etc) And my best find of the day a sizable theropod toe bone (a first for me). He need a little repair work. Thanks for reading!
  19. Iguanodonts in Alberta

    Interesting find leads researches to speculate that Iguanodonts were in Canada? Footprints found in the Gladstone Formation of Southwest Alberta appear to be the first piece of evidence that the range of Iguanodonts was global. The footprints are similar to Iguanodon bernissartensis which is found in the UK. https://www.paleowire.com/just-out-the-first-evidence-of-iguanodontids-dinosauria-ornithischia-in-alberta-canada-a-fossil-footprint-from-the-early-cretaceous-cretaceous-research/ The first evidence of iguanodontids (Dinosauria: Ornithischia) in Alberta, Canada – A fossil footprint from the Early Cretaceous Donald M.

  24. Bizarre Dinosaur Bone

    This fragment of dinosaur bone was in the old Hobberlin Museum collection, stuffed into a milk crate with a bunch of Cretaceous material from Alberta, Canada. Most seemed to be segments of long bones, but this stood out to me. Any help would be appreciated!
  25. Albertan heteromorphs

    Dear all, As I said long ago, this year I might be going to Canada. However, most of the time will be spent in Alberta for a dinosaur dig with Prof. Philip Currie. This basically washes away my plans of going to Vancouver Island and find heteromorphs on the Comox Valley. So, as I would still like to find some heteromorph ammonites, I was wondering whether there would be any heteromorph ammonite sites in the vicinity of Dinosaur Provincial Park (of preference less than 2 hours away, by car). Thanks for any help, Christian
