  1. Osteoderm or Ironstone?

    This is a chunk I found in the Horseshoe Canyon Formation, specifically in the Horseshoe Canyon area. It’s shape and ridges look almost identical to a small Ankylosaur/Nodosaur osteoderm, but the texture suggests a random chunk of ironstone. I’m leaning towards ironstone, but I think there’s a chance it could be a really smooth osteoderm. Would any of you guys be able to tell for sure? Thanks!
  2. Nodosaur Stomach Contents

    Amazing Nodosaur fossil from Alberta gives up secrets of dinosaur diets. They ate ferns and charcoal. https://phys.org/news/2020-06-scientists-armored-dinosaur-ate-meal.html
  3. Nodosaur Tooth

    I was looking at a number of teeth in my collection and I had this labeled as an Ankylosaur tooth, but looking at it I am thinking it is a Nodosaur tooth. I know that this tooth came from Canada, but have no other info on it. @Troodon ?
  4. Hi everyone , i am new to this site and unsure how to go around yet . But the main reasons of my membership , i have been told by a nice person in Seattle to join your group . What i'm about to write is hard to believe , i don't know why such event is happening in my life . Long story short , North Lancaster Ontario , i as a hobby on my land with streams and river was looking for gold , there was lots by crushing rocks that i judged mineral decay of iron , pyrite and gold . The trouble is that i wasn't crushing stones but bones of dinosaurs that i came to realize one step at the time . Looking around , every rocks on the ground , streams and all of them were fossils where i finally seen the fossils on parts of dino's . I turned the table , upset with my stupid self crushing precious remains for a while . I then started to question the whole scene , well after another venture pushed by my curiosity i have found what appeared to be a part of a T-Rex , then i looked across the bridge i made to stack of rocks , piles of complete dinosaurs left by a farmer back long ago i presume . So still doubtful of every new information , i started following the shape of the T-Rex with a brush and a photo . It was one , one next to it , countless in back and around barn . they are not dug out yet . I left the ones that were rocks which are real nice to carry on my one dino . I seen many obvious spots around the acreages , i know , i am only 5 or 6 ft above the old Champlain sea , i also realized that my basement floor is the sea bed guess with what in , T=rex . I thought it was going a bit to far keep questioning myself . The bad parts of Paleontologists i'll leave for later , that makes my blood boil . broil .,,, I have now in a month of my new quest , 3 T-rex to undertake ??? put the puzzle across the creek together and i am still by myself after trying all avenues possible . my blood again lol .. Can someone help me thanks lots , Philippe
  5. Ankylosaur or Nodosaur Scute ?

    One of my goals is to bring a very tactile element to our education programs. I think adding a piece of dino armor is going to be a real hit with the kids. I have been trying to brush up on ankylosaur and nodosaur scutes in preparation of getting one at some point in the near future. I am not to the level of being able to recognize them yet but I did see one in our price range. I am not sure about this one. The seller lists it as being from Hell Creek. It is 2.5"x1.5" and is 1/2 inch thick. Anybody have any thoughts about this one ?
  6. New nodosaur from New Mexico

    A new ankylosaur-related paper has appeared online: Andrew T. McDonald; Douglas G. Wolfe (2018). A new nodosaurid ankylosaur (Dinosauria: Thyreophora) from the Upper Cretaceous Menefee Formation of New Mexico. PeerJ. 6: e5435. doi:10.7717/peerj.5435. Invictarx is the newest addition to a growing inventory of nodosaurid ankylosaurs from the Coniacian-early Campanian of western North America, but is the first to be found in terrestrial deposits in that interval, because Niobrarasaurus, Acantholipan, and Hierosaurus have been found in marine deposits.
  7. Fossil?

    Hey hi Y'all, Noticed this piece in a reply to a thread. It was used as an example of an unusual preservation fossil. I have doubt as to whether it is a fossil, much less sure it is what it is identified as. So here is their picture and statement... All known nodosaurs were armored, but the impression fossil of the Propanoplosaurus baby doesn't appear to have any armor. What's going on? The hard, bony armor of nodosaurs was readily preserved and has been found associated with the bones of adults of all species, so the lack of armor on the baby's skeleton is surprising. Scientists have two hypotheses. It could be that the skeleton of the dead baby nodosaur slipped out of its armored skin before the skeletal impression formed. It is also possible that nodosaurs were born without armor and developed it as they grew. We know that other types of dinosaurs were born without some of the features that they had as adults. For example, Pachycephalosaurus, famous for its domed skull with knobby protuberances, lacked the dome when it was young. Likewise, the horns and neck frill of Triceratops species were different in young, mature, and old individuals. My questions are... Does anyone think this is a real fossil? Can You show other pieces with similar preservation?
  8. Denversaurus

    This is the only described Nodosaurid in the Hell Creek Formation at the moment. New discoveries may make it impossible to bring this tooth down to genus and species.
  9. In near-complete fossil form, only known Kansas dinosaur reappears after 100 million years. The Nodosaur Silvisaurus condrayi. Only part of the dinosaur ever was placed on exhibit at the museum, and that display was removed several years ago that changed this Spring. Interesting story to this cool dinosaur .....article starts as follows "In May of 1955, a Kansas rancher on horseback was checking on cows and calves near a dry “pasture ditch” that ran through his land in Ottawa County. In a gully, he spotted something strange — fragments of unusual bone embedded in a rock." ... http://news.ku.edu/2018/04/25/near-complete-fossil-form-only-known-kansas-dinosaur-reappears-after-100-million-years Silvisaurus condrayi The original paper, 1960 https://kuscholarworks.ku.edu/handle/1808/3799
  10. Plos blog looks at the first evidence of the possibility of camouflage in dinosaurs.
