  1. Bison bones?

    Hey guys, friend of mine found these bones in Calgary/Alberta while excavating near the river (about 5ish m deep). I figured the head looks like bison, but not sure about the rest of bones. And how old they might be. And anyone knows what’s that white stuff inside of one of the bones? Like calcified bone marrow? Any opinion would be greatly appreciated!!
  2. What is this?

    My daughter found this surface fossil and I have no idea what it is. Can you help out? Drumheller. Alberta. Horse Thief Canyon.
  3. Some new bones to ID

    Found lots of new fossils this weekend, mostly hadrosaur material & another tyrannosaur tooth but these two I’m not sure about. They were collected from the Dinosaur Park formation, on private land northwest of the park. Hoping some of you could help. The fossil orange in colour only sparked interest because of the strange texture on one side, and the white bone I realize will be hard to tell what animal it’s from but if I could at least know what type of bone that one is it would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
  4. Tyrannosaur tooth

    Hi I’m wondering what are your thoughts on this Tyrannosaur tooth? It’s 1.25 inches and is from the Dinosaur Park Formation of Alberta.
  5. Please help me identify tooth #2

    Hi! Here is the second tooth I recently acquired. The information he had was It Was from the oldman formation in the red river valley Alberta. It is 3.5 cm on the long side with 3 serrations per mm.
  6. Hi I recently got this tooth. It’s from Alberta Canada but that’s all the information I have on it. It’s 1.5 cm at the longest size with 28 serrations on that side.
  7. Found in an outcrop of the Dino Park Formation in Alberta. 1. First 4 pics - not sure what this is? It's thick and dense though 2. Next 3 pics - maybe an atlas or axial vertebrae of something? 3. Next 1 pic - scute or turtle shell plate? 4. Next 3 pics - Ceratopsian brow horn?
  8. Bonebed

    Got access to some more private land near Dinosaur PP, company owned. My friend was familiar with this area since he was a kid so he said we should check it out, and we found some awesome dinosaur fossils! So far nothing was collected, but yesterday I got ahold of the land supervisor for the company and after receiving some paperwork coming my way on Monday I will be permitted to surface collect anything I find in this area, so this thread will be updated with more finds this coming week. Here are some photos of what we found so far: A lot of the bones looked like they were from a hadrosaur, sort of confirmed when I found this hadrosaur tooth. However there were two partial tyrannosaurid teeth nearby as well...maybe the hadrosaur got munched on... Limb bone (?) with multiple vertebrae nearby. I set them next to the large bone for the photo. Another vert, this one is in the ground so unfortunately I can’t do anything with it. Many, many bones were scattered around the area. Much more photos to come...very excited about collecting here!!
  9. Took A Long Hike Today

    I wanted to try some new spots that are closer to home, so a family here was nice enough to take me out to their land near Dinosaur Provincial Park and allow me to surface collect. I only kept two things (wasted a good portion of the day searching for tyrannosaur teeth to no avail) but I did find some neat stuff so I thought I’d share. Please excuse the circling and the caption, those were for Instagram. Nice & green this time of year. Won’t look like that for long. Heres something I found a few times today; random pits of petrified wood just shattered. Here’s a good 10 inch chunk that I kept. More petrified wood. Dino bones. Most of them were broken and difficult to tell what they were, as the dinosaur park area bones usually are. Please excuse the circling. It was for Instagram. This was the largest bone I seen today, was over 2 feet long most likely but it was at an awkward place so I didn’t climb any higher to get close. Excuse the caption. This one was fairly large as well. This one I kept because it was one of the only good condition bones that wouldn’t require excavation. Hadrosaur toe bone. (thanks jpc for the help)
  10. Another Bone to ID Please

    Hey all, some folks I know around here own land by Dinosaur Provincial Park and were kind enough to not only let me explore their land but also surface collect. This particular bone I’m unsure about. It’s pretty sun bleached. Maybe a Hadrosaur foot bone of some sort?
  11. Dinosaur Provincial Park 2018

    Today two years ago I was in Dinosaur Provincial Park! So I just wanted to share some photos from when I was there. Here is a Ceratopsian indet leg bone Here is me beside the leg bone Next is a footprint from a Hadrosaur indet from a trackway
  12. what is this?

    We live approx. 3kms from the Pipestone Creek bone bed. I volunteer in the lab at the museum once in a while. My grandkids and I were snooping around in our rock pile (we built on our acreage in 2001), that we piled up as we did the new build and cleaned up the yard. We found this weird rock. I left a message with Derek and emailed a couple of pics to him as well. Have not heard from anyone as yet. Just thought that I would share and ask what this is? It weighs between 16 and 17 pounds and is approx. 24cm long.
  13. What is it?

    Found this morning at Red Rock Coulee which is a provincial park an hour south of Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada.
  14. I'm a rock tumbler and I enjoy rock hounding as much as the tumbling. Two days ago I was hounding the river here in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada and found this guy...the shape stood out as it was not the usual river rounded rock I see and there have been dinosaur finds around here so I wondered if it could be a fossil. I know nothing about dinosaur fossils but it kinda looked like a joint bone?? When I got home I googled "dinosaur joint bone" and saw some images with similar shapes which brought me here. All opinions yay or nay welcome...
  15. 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
  16. 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)
  17. SS. Mount Temple video

    I just found this on YouTube, and thought that it was something interesting to share.
  18. 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
  19. 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!!
  20. 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.
  21. 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!!
  22. 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!!
  23. 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.
  24. 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!!
  25. 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
