  1. I found this ...I dont even know how to try and describe it. Any ideas?
  2. Lost river coulee

    I found the lost river coulee south of manyberries. I hiked for about 5 hours and it was a great landscape to explore. However, I found next to no vertebrate fossils.
  3. Tyrannosaur teeth variations

    My son found a long skinny tyrannosaur tooth on South Saskatchewan River, West of Medicine Hat (oldman formation? Formost FM? DPP?) We've found all sorts of tyrannosaur teeth - short fat ones, short wide narrow ones, long fat ones, long narrow ones (Richadoestia), and all sorts of variations of curves or straight Species, age, and tooth position may all be factors. I'm just wondering if anyone has more info? This tooth is relatively narrow and thin for its length. I can post other examples of teeth found in the same area that are quite different from one another. I believe these may be examples of gorgosaurus or daspletosaurus as they were found in the DPP formation
  4. Pachycephalosaur skull cap?

    I found this piece while surface collecting along the red deer river. East of dinosaur provincial park boundary. Its weathered but very sturdy. I've looked at other skull caps and the undersides look different. This doesnt have all the brain case structures so I was hoping for some help on the ID. Thanks
  5. Mystery Dinosaur Bone

    Found this one recently. As usual Dinosaur park fm. Thought it might be some sort of jaw section at first but now I’m just confused. It’s got a weird half-circle cutout going through what I presume is the bottom of it.
  6. Unknown Cretaceous Bones

    This is my first posting so I hope I am doing this correctly. I have a few bones that I have found in the Morin Bridge area, east of Three Hills, Alberta. It is Cretaceous era. The first is a small bone that looks like part of a skull, possibly lizard. The second set is a tooth. My guess is a worn crocodile but they are rather rare in that area. It is flat like a ray tooth but I think that is due to wear. It also has a single root rather than a split one like on a ray. The third is a large bone that has an unusual shape so I am hoping it is something someone would recognize. Thanks for any assistance you can give me. I collected dino fossils since the mid sixties and have quite a few that I need some help with so will probably be posting more. Back in the 90's I took a chance and registered my collection with the Tyrrell Museum so I have a disposition certificate. Andy Neuman, (spelling) from the museum actually came up and looked at some of the fish jaws I had but they did sign over what I have, thank goodness. Here are the photos.
  7. These pieces were both found in the horseshoe canyon cretaceous formation in Alberta. There were multiple hadrosaur teeth and bones nearby, so that could be a starting point. Could anybody help me with an ID?
  8. Bite mark on a tyrannosaur tooth?

    Hey guys, I found this tooth that has what looks to be fossilized with a slice from a bite. I'm not sure if that is what it is. Has anyone else ever seen this? It's a first for me.
  9. What Type Of Claw Is This?

    Found this recently while looking for teeth. Looks like a good portion of it is broken off but it looks like it might be a claw to me. As usual, Dinosaur Park fm.
  10. Anyone know what this might be?

    Never seen anything like this. Has a really strange texture & shape. Found on private land in the dinosaur park fm.
  11. Albertosaurus?

    I seen multiple hell creek fm teeth for sale labelled as “Albertosaurus”, though I’m pretty sure I’ve read that the only way to confirm it’s Albertosaurus is for it to be found around the Drumheller area, specifically horseshoe canyon. Is this true, making the teeth simply indeterminate tyrannosaurids or are the fossils of this animal found elsewhere? Thanks.
  12. Hi, I’ve been working on my project for a while now and I’ve decided to ask everyone to show there Alberta Tyrannosaur fossils! And if it’s teeth would you be able to put the Mesial and Distal serration count over 2mm. Thank you!
  13. 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!!
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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?
  20. 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!!
  21. 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)
  22. 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?
  23. 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
  24. 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.
  25. What is it?

    Found this morning at Red Rock Coulee which is a provincial park an hour south of Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada.
