  1. I recently moved to Calgary from Winnipeg and would like to go fossil hunting - but I don’t know where to go. I am familiar with Alberta’s regulations pertaining to surface collection. I know most people don’t like to give out the locations of their favorite fishing holes or fossil sites. Any guidance you can provide for locations would be appreciated.
  2. Is this a fossil ? Found in ravine

    Hi there, just wonder if this is a fossil I found it in Edmonton, Alberta in a ravine by a small little stream. Sorry for lack of information, quite new to fossil hunting, thank you for understanding and any response is appreciated.
  3. First dinosaur fossils of the season

    My first day out. Not sure what it all is but looks like tyrannosaur teeth, claws? Horn? Big toe bone and micro toe bone? Croc tooth, small vertibra? I would appreciate if anyone can help out on the ID. Next time I'm going to take a digital tour and post in situ.
  4. I hammered this free from a chunk of ironstone. Ironstone matrix. I thought it was completely round like a marble nut the more I inspected I see some traits that this is a designed specimen with a symmetrical pattern and some unique patterns. Any ideas?
  5. Alberta RCMP are on the hunt for a trio of dinosaur-toting thieves after a late-night break and enter at the Jurassic Forest Theme Park near Gibbons. http://www.cbc.ca/amp/1.4542915?__twitter_impression=true
  6. Theropod teeth from Alberta??

    Hi guys, I recently made a trade with someone for some theropod teeth fragments from Alberta, I was just wondering if their was any chance of possibly nailing down what these teeth came from other then theropod. As always many thanks guys, GK
  7. Tyrannosaurid Tooth?

    Hi folks! Thought I might try leaning on the expertise of the forum gurus - I've owned this tooth for a few years and would like to hear any opinions of what the specimen should be classed as. It was sold as Daspletosaurus Torosus, but I'm aware of how hard it can be to label Tyrannosaur teeth (or just leave them as 'indet'). The tooth originated from Alberta, Canada. As it isn't the clearest to see, the denticles (which are very fine and equal in size on both sides) on the anterior edge curve off to the right (viewing the tooth face on), whilst the posterior serrated line is straight. PS: Apologies for the quality of photos too...my phone doesn't enjoy photographing anything magnified.
  8. 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?
  9. Claw fossil. Microraptor ?

    Hey, just curious if anyone might help out on this ID. Hysperonychus? Sourornitholestes?
  10. 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???
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. 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.
  15. 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.

  19. 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?
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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?
  23. 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!
  24. 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.
