  1. Acheroratpor tooth confirmation

    Based on the numerous and informative posts of @Troodon, I feel pretty confident that this tooth is an Acheroraptor. It is from the Hell Creek formation, South Dakota. I saw some things that looked diagnostic and the seller provided pics that were pretty good. Anybody want to confirm the ID or present an alternative ?
  2. I thought I’d post some of my favorite claws from my collection. I’m curious what people think about my ID on one of them and I have no idea what the last one is. ID help with that one would be great! (All measurements are straight line) Spinosaurus hand claw 4 1/2” Kem Kem Beds, Morocco Repairs, but I see no restoration Acheroraptor Temerytorum foot walking claw 1 7/8” Hell Creek Carter County, Montana No repair or restoration (at first). However, the tip broke off during molding and it was lost. 1/16” restoration done to the tip now Two Acheroraptor killing claws. The larger one is 3 1/8” and the smaller is 1 9/16” Hell Creek Powder River County, Montana Large claw has restoration to the top 1/4” of the articulation end and 3/4” to the tip Smaller claw has restoration on 5/8” of the tip Same claw as above, with size perspective Other side... Acheroraptor Temertyorum digit I hallux claw 7/8” Hell Creek Slope County, North Dakota No repair or restoration Acheroraptor Temertyorum hand claw 1 1/4” Hell Creek Powder River County, Montana Restoration to 1/2” of the tip I originally thought this this was a Pachycephalosaurus claw, but Troodon’s posting on TFF makes me now believe it’s Thescelosaurus Hell Creek Powder River County, Montana No repair or restoration Side view.. Troodontid walking foot claw 1 1/16” Hell Creek Wibeaux County, Montana Looks like restoration to 1/4” of the tip Possible Microraptorine hand claw 5/8” Hell Creek Carter County, Montana Small amount of restoration to the top of the articulating end and 1/8” of the tip Same claw... Microraptorine killing claw. Related to Hesperonychus sp. 7/8” Hell Creek South Dakota Restoration to 3/16” of the tip Same claw for size comparison... Curious what people think of this one.. I believe it to be a Troodontid killing claw 3/4” Two Medicine Formation Unfortunately, no locality info on it Looks like the tip was glued back on, but no restoration Other side... Now I have no clue what this could be and I’d love some help. I bought it as a new collector awhile ago with very little knowledge. It was sold as a baby Anzu foot claw and the seller said Black Hills Museum ID’d it. I think it’s actually mammalian. Any thoughts? Size comparison Articulating end (sorry for the poor pics)
  3. Fast. Intelligent. Deadly. The "Raptor" is perhaps one of the most famous dinosaur today thanks to Jurassic Park. To many people's surprise however, raptors are heavily feathered and nimbler than movies would have you believe. The Jurassic Park Velociraptor was merely the size of coyote in real life! In fact, their proper family name is 'Dromaeosaurid'. The largest species was Utahraptor, and it grew to the size of a grizzly bear! Dromaeosaurid fossils have been found all over the world. They first appeared during the Cretaceous, though isolated teeth have been found in the mid-Jurassic. Allow me to present my humble collection of Dromaeosaurid teeth. First up, from Cloverly Formation, one of my pride and joy from @hxmendoza A dromaeosaurid from Aguja Formation. I am seeing more Aguja fossils showing up, but dromaeosaurid teeth are still rare. Now, for the dromaeosaurids from the famous Hell Creek Formation. Some of them probably lived alongside T. rex. A big shout-out for @Troodon for getting me started on dromaeosaurids with this very first Acheroraptor!
  4. The seller put these teeth up for sale and identifies them as unidentified Dromaeosaurus teeth with possibly one being Acheroraptor. Looking for consensus on the identification, thank you for looking
  5. David Evans who described Acheroraptor shared this photo and information on a few notable Dromaeosaurid's. Thought it would be of interest to the Dino guys and others. I also show a hand next to an adult Velociraptor skull which gives a real life size comparison, since a lot of depictions and replicas sold are well oversized. Acherorapter is from the Maastrichtian of Hell Creek/Lance Formation Saurornitholestes shown from Campanian of Canada/Montana Velociraptor from Campanian of Asia David: How big was the Hell Creek dromaeosaurid Acheroraptor temertyorum (top)? It’s about 25% bigger than Saurornitholestes (middle) and 66% bigger than Velociraptor (bottom). For reference it’s about 15% smaller than Deinonychus
  6. Claw back from restoration

    I just got my large Acheroraptor temertyorum digit II-3 killing claw back from the restorer. He added the missing 1/4” back on to the top of the articulating end and added the missing 3/4” of the tip. The rest of the claw is complete, as it was found nearly whole. It’s one of my prized possessions and I am so happy with the restoration work. The claw was found in Powder River County, Montana’s Hell Creek Formation.
  7. This is a fossil from the Cretaceous time period, it was found in the Hell creek formation. The specimen is a little under an inch long (tried to get a good picture of the serrations). I've done some research on the differences between the species I listed in the title and I've come short of being able to properly identify it (I'm only really a rookie fossil collector).
  8. My Hell Creek Microraptorine sickle claw that I traded for a larger Hell Creek Dromaeosaur sickle claw. Probably Acheroraptor. The Microraptorine sickle claw after full restoration. It is related to Hesperonychus. I will miss it:
