  1. A few troubling fossils

    Hey guys, I got a couple of fossils I am struggling to ID. All fossils shown were found in Fallen Timber creek, Ab, Canada. They were found along a rock bed along the creek itself. The first set of pics is a rather common fossil I find, with it being a imprint of some kind on a black rock. Was wondering if somebody could ID the actually imprint itself as I am having trouble doing so (think it is some kind of coral or other "aquatic vegetation"). The next set is a bone shaped object, looks to be the end of a joint. But I am unsure if it is just fracturing in the sandstone creating the pattern or if it is an actual fossil (as the inside is sandstone). Last I have a very odd shaped rock with some bumps and odd patterns in it. Unsure with this one as well if it is a fossil or just a rock. (ignore the green tint in the first photo) (also in the first photo set, the specimen wraps around the rock) Thanks to everyone for the help
  2. Unknown fossil in sandstone

    Hey there, I am new to this forum and so far it seems very lovely. But I have found this fossil in a rock outcrop on a creek. I am unsure what it is and would be very thankful if someone could help out. The fossil itself is embedded in sandstone and has many grooves/lines coming from the top and trailing towards the stone itself (The larger specimens). The fossil was found at Fallen Timber creek (not the campground) in southern Alberta, Canada. (I would upload more images/angles), but for some reason it won't let me after two even after compressing the images)
  3. SS. Mount Temple video

    I just found this on YouTube, and thought that it was something interesting to share.
  4. Alberta Dinosaur Bone ID

    2.5cm x 2.5cm x 1.5cm Is it a skull? I am guessing the holes on the underside (right picture) will help determine what it is
  5. Dromeosaur vertebra centrum from Alberta?

    Hi, Is this a Dromeosaur vertebra centrum?, Is there anyway to tell If it is? It’s 1.56 inches long, and is from the Drumheller valley of the Horseshoe Canyon Formation of Alberta, Canada. Thank you!!
  6. My Tyrannosaur research

    Hi I decided to make a post about my main research project right now on Campanian Tyrannosaurs specifically Daspletosaurus. Today I have found something to tell teeth from the Judith River Formation and Dinosaur Park Formation. This could also do with the Tyrannosaurs prey or locality. I found out that Judith River Formation Tyrannosaur teeth serrations are more circular and more round compared to the same time Dinosaur Park Formation Tyrannosaur teeth serrations. The Dinosaur Park Formation Tyrannosaur teeth serrations are more longer skinner and more chiseled like but not like other Tyrannosaur teeth from other areas like T. rex’s teeth serrations. Certain Tyrannosaurs in different areas and times would/could of had unique serration morphology probably dew to there prey. I did this on multiple teeth from the Judith River Formation and Dinosaur Park Formation to strengthen my hypothesis. Any opinions on this topic would be great. I will post more on my research here on this and other topics on the Tyrannosaur/Daspletosaurus. I have been doing research on this Daspletosaurus from the Dinosaur Park Formation and it’s close relatives because it was the first dinosaur fossil I’ve ever found. I’ve liked fossils and dinosaurs since I was 2 but in 2018 I went to Alberta and found my first dinosaur fossil which was a fossil from the Dinosaur Park Formation Daspletosaurus sp. Thats why I have been researching on this topic. The serrations I found on Dinosaur Park Formation Tyrannosaur teeth. The serrations I found on Judith River Formation Tyrannosaur teeth.
  7. 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!!
  8. Hi I found this with the rest of my fossil replicas and was wondering if it could be a Rex tooth or another type of Tyrannosaur tooth. I don’t know if I can post this here or get an ID on it since it’s a replica but I got it at the Royal Tyrell Museum in Drumheller, Canada it’s a replica of one of there specimens. And I just wanted to know what it could be since it seemed strange to me on how skinny and long it is, Thank you!!
  9. Hi I decided to make this since the new Tyrannosaur from Alberta’s Foremost Formation, Thanatotheristes deerootorum has just been named and described. Enjoy!! Tyrannosaur bearing Formations in Canada: Formations in Alberta but most of the Formations on my list are I Alberta anyway. Horseshoe Canyon Formation 74-68 million years ago, Alberta: Albertosaurus sarcophagus, possibly Daspletosaurus sp. but no compelling evidence so far. Oldman Formation 78.2-77 million years ago, Alberta: Daspletosaurus torosus, Gorgosaurus sp. Foremost Formation 80.5-78.2 million years ago, Alberta: Thanatotheristes deerootorum, possibly Gorgosaurus sp. Milk River Formation 84.5-83.4 million years ago, Alberta: Tyrannosaur. indet could be a species of Thanatotheristes, possibly Gorgosaurus sp. Scollard Formation 68-66 million years ago, Alberta: T. rex, possibly Nanotyrannus Formations in British Columbia: Wapiti Formation 76.8-70 million years ago, Alberta, British Columbia: Unknown Albertosaurinae either Gorgosaurus or Albertosaurus, possibly Daspletosaurus sp. Tumbler Ridge 135-74 million years ago, British Columbia: Tyrannosaur. indet Formations in Saskatchewan and Manitoba: Dinosaur Park Formation 77-75.5 million years ago, Alberta, Saskatchewan: Daspletosaurus sp., Gorgosaurus libratus Frenchmen Formation, 68-66 million years ago, Saskatchewan: T. rex, possibly Nanotyrannus Bearpaw Formation 75-72 million years ago, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba: Daspletosaurus sp. one specimen from Daspletosaurus sp. that drowned. For now these are all the Tyrannosaurs known from Canada. No Eastern Tyrannosaurs in Canada yet either but maybe someday. I will also update this and add as more information comes available.
  10. Thanatotheristes paper request

    Hi I was wondering is there any paper on Thanatotheristes that’s not pay-walled? Or an alternative way to get into the paper? I’ve found no way so far. Thank you!!
  11. New Tyrannosaurid from Alberta

    Well it was about time but we have a new Tyrannosaurid from the Foremost Formation of Alberta called Thanatotheristes degrootorum. Its part of a new clad called Daspletosaurini which comprises other Daspletosaurus spp. The foremost is a mid Campanian deposit. Its the first described Tyrannosaurid from this deposit. This represents the earliest stratigraphic occurrence of diagnostic tyrannosaurid material from Canada. Its a paywalled paper https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0195667119303611 From Wiki
  12. I have recently been looking at some of my photos from trips and found photos of when I was in Alberta in 2018. I saw a photo of a Hadrosaur footprint from a trackway in Dinosaur Provincial Park that me and my brother found. I also read not to long ago that no big trackways have been found in this area so I decided to give the information and location to the Palaeontologist at the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, Alberta. I was responded by Dr. Caleb Brown, he told me that I was most likely right and it was probably Hadrosaur. I am currently waiting for him to reply again to see what he thinks about the other information of the trackway and footprint that I gave him. One of the footprints outlined in the photo with pen.
  13. Hi I found some of my photos from when I went to Alberta in 2018. I will post more tomorrow but I found this in particular really cool. It’s a comparison of the Dinosaur Park Formation, Dinosaur Provincial Park and the Horseshoe Canyon Formation, Horseshoe Canyon Drumheller. Both photos by me in 2018 I had them side by side each other. It just shows the different Ecosystems that where here millions of years ago!!
  14. Alberta Fossil Hunting

    My husband and I are driving from Texas to Canada. We are both Science teachers and avid fossil hunters in TX. Could someone advise us on where we could collect fossils. I just want a few to bring back for my classroom and to my students. I educate about 350 students in the 6th grade each year with rocks and fossils found all over the US. Would love to find a few to show them. I would even be willing to bring some with me to exchange with you.
  15. 3 new fossils

    Hi I just got these today and would like to show them. If you need more photos just ask. Thank you and enjoy!! Hadrosaur. indet carpel Horseshoe canyon formation, Drumheller valley, Alberta, Canada.
  16. Hi sometime later this year I will be going out West in Alberta, B.C and Saskatchewan. And I will be going down to Montana for 2 days to collect fossils since I can’t really do that in Alberta. I am wondering would I be able to bring those fossils into Alberta and then fly with them, and take them back to Ontario? Thank you!!
  17. Nanotyrannus in Canada

    Hi the debate about Nanotyrannus got me thinking is Nanotyrannus found in Alberta Canada in the Scollard or Frenchmen Formations. If not then it could be valid since T-Rex is found there and if it’s a juvenile Rex then there should be a least some evidence for It there, since T-rex’s are found there. And if so this could provide Nanotyrannus’s range.
  18. Hi I recently found out that my new tyrannosaur species from my topic unknown Tyrannosaur happens to be a new species but not what I thought. It was already known to be a new species for a while. It turns out it's a Daspletosaurus sp., A unnamed Tyrannosaur that Currie recognized years ago to be a new species of Daspletosaurus from the Dinosaur park formation. Still not much research has been done on it. I decided to learn more on the Dinosaur park formation Daspletosaurus sp. But I can't find anything on it, no papers no information, other then a few mentions in some books and study's but that's it. I am wondering if anyone here can help me out with that? Thank you!!
  19. Hi I just bought these two dinosaur fossils from Alberta Canada. A Ceratopsian vert and a Hadrosaur metatarsal. The colouring and look/preservation of the Hadrosaur metatarsal makes me think they didn’t come from the Horseshoe canyon formation like it says but instead the Dinosaur Park formation. since it doesn’t give much information other then the Horseshoe canyon formation it’s possible, Thanks for future help. Ceratopsian vert
  20. Hi I decided to make a quick guide on how to ID Tyrannosaur teeth from the Belly River Group of Alberta, and the Judith River, Two Medicine Formations. I got this information on a study on how to ID isolated Tyrannosaur teeth from Dr. Angelica Torices. I’ll start off on saying Albertosaurus and Gorgosaurus are extremely alike not much differences in the morphology Daspletosaurus is a little bit Different, the morphology of these two Tyrannosaurs (Gorgosaurus and Daspletosaurus) are probably do to similar evolutionary history Gorgosaurus could of been Albertosaurus ancestor. Now I’ll tell you how to tell these two Tyrannosaur teeth apart (Gorgosaurus and Daspletosaurus). Gorgosaurus has two denticles (serrations) per mm where’s Daspletosaurus does not. Albertosaurus also have two denticles per mm because of Albertosaurus and Gorgosaurus evolutionary history. Also one more thing only with Albertosaurus, juvenile teeth can be different not just in there size but in there morphology too to the Adult teeth where’s Gorgosaurus and Daspletosaurus juvenile and adult teeth always have the same morphology. And thats what I’ve learned about this topic hope it helps, enjoy!!.
  21. What are the odds? A chunk of amber with an aphid fossil pressed against a Dinosaur jawbone from Alberta. https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2019/11/remarkable-fossil-features-insect-trapped-amber-stuck-dinosaur-jaw
  22. Asymmetric horns just like some deer antlers. So when half a skull is found, you can't assume the other side was symmetrical. How many times do we find half a skull? https://m.phys.org/news/2019-11-dinosaur-skull-paleontology-assumptions.html
  23. Hi I was wondering is the horseshoe canyon formation part of the belly river group?
  24. Is this a fossil?

    Hi everyone, I hope I am posting this correctly... I was working on the Wabasca River in Norhern Alberta and I picked up this rock in the river for one of our substrate measurements. It looks so different I wondered if it could be a fossil or an impression of a fossil. I haven't the foggiest idea where to start looking to identify it so I joined this group in hope that someone might shed light on it. Thanks for any help, I didn't get the best photo but I tried Emily
