  1. Hi I found some of my photos from when I went to Alberta in 2018. I will post more tomorrow but I found this in particular really cool. It’s a comparison of the Dinosaur Park Formation, Dinosaur Provincial Park and the Horseshoe Canyon Formation, Horseshoe Canyon Drumheller. Both photos by me in 2018 I had them side by side each other. It just shows the different Ecosystems that where here millions of years ago!!
  2. Alberta Fossil Hunting

    My husband and I are driving from Texas to Canada. We are both Science teachers and avid fossil hunters in TX. Could someone advise us on where we could collect fossils. I just want a few to bring back for my classroom and to my students. I educate about 350 students in the 6th grade each year with rocks and fossils found all over the US. Would love to find a few to show them. I would even be willing to bring some with me to exchange with you.
  3. 3 new fossils

    Hi I just got these today and would like to show them. If you need more photos just ask. Thank you and enjoy!! Hadrosaur. indet carpel Horseshoe canyon formation, Drumheller valley, Alberta, Canada.
  4. Hi sometime later this year I will be going out West in Alberta, B.C and Saskatchewan. And I will be going down to Montana for 2 days to collect fossils since I can’t really do that in Alberta. I am wondering would I be able to bring those fossils into Alberta and then fly with them, and take them back to Ontario? Thank you!!
  5. Nanotyrannus in Canada

    Hi the debate about Nanotyrannus got me thinking is Nanotyrannus found in Alberta Canada in the Scollard or Frenchmen Formations. If not then it could be valid since T-Rex is found there and if it’s a juvenile Rex then there should be a least some evidence for It there, since T-rex’s are found there. And if so this could provide Nanotyrannus’s range.
  6. Hi I recently found out that my new tyrannosaur species from my topic unknown Tyrannosaur happens to be a new species but not what I thought. It was already known to be a new species for a while. It turns out it's a Daspletosaurus sp., A unnamed Tyrannosaur that Currie recognized years ago to be a new species of Daspletosaurus from the Dinosaur park formation. Still not much research has been done on it. I decided to learn more on the Dinosaur park formation Daspletosaurus sp. But I can't find anything on it, no papers no information, other then a few mentions in some books and study's but that's it. I am wondering if anyone here can help me out with that? Thank you!!
  7. Hi I just bought these two dinosaur fossils from Alberta Canada. A Ceratopsian vert and a Hadrosaur metatarsal. The colouring and look/preservation of the Hadrosaur metatarsal makes me think they didn’t come from the Horseshoe canyon formation like it says but instead the Dinosaur Park formation. since it doesn’t give much information other then the Horseshoe canyon formation it’s possible, Thanks for future help. Ceratopsian vert
  8. Hi I decided to make a quick guide on how to ID Tyrannosaur teeth from the Belly River Group of Alberta, and the Judith River, Two Medicine Formations. I got this information on a study on how to ID isolated Tyrannosaur teeth from Dr. Angelica Torices. I’ll start off on saying Albertosaurus and Gorgosaurus are extremely alike not much differences in the morphology Daspletosaurus is a little bit Different, the morphology of these two Tyrannosaurs (Gorgosaurus and Daspletosaurus) are probably do to similar evolutionary history Gorgosaurus could of been Albertosaurus ancestor. Now I’ll tell you how to tell these two Tyrannosaur teeth apart (Gorgosaurus and Daspletosaurus). Gorgosaurus has two denticles (serrations) per mm where’s Daspletosaurus does not. Albertosaurus also have two denticles per mm because of Albertosaurus and Gorgosaurus evolutionary history. Also one more thing only with Albertosaurus, juvenile teeth can be different not just in there size but in there morphology too to the Adult teeth where’s Gorgosaurus and Daspletosaurus juvenile and adult teeth always have the same morphology. And thats what I’ve learned about this topic hope it helps, enjoy!!.
  9. What are the odds? A chunk of amber with an aphid fossil pressed against a Dinosaur jawbone from Alberta. https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2019/11/remarkable-fossil-features-insect-trapped-amber-stuck-dinosaur-jaw
  10. Asymmetric horns just like some deer antlers. So when half a skull is found, you can't assume the other side was symmetrical. How many times do we find half a skull? https://m.phys.org/news/2019-11-dinosaur-skull-paleontology-assumptions.html
  11. Hi I was wondering is the horseshoe canyon formation part of the belly river group?
  12. Is this a fossil?

    Hi everyone, I hope I am posting this correctly... I was working on the Wabasca River in Norhern Alberta and I picked up this rock in the river for one of our substrate measurements. It looks so different I wondered if it could be a fossil or an impression of a fossil. I haven't the foggiest idea where to start looking to identify it so I joined this group in hope that someone might shed light on it. Thanks for any help, I didn't get the best photo but I tried Emily

  14. Dinosaur park formation hunting

    Hi I was wondering where are some good spots for fossils in the dinosaur park formation outside of dinosaur Provincial Park thanks
  15. Centrosaurus Bone

    Hi I recently found out what this bone came from from my first post I turns out it’s from a Centrosaurus Aperatus I found out from a Centrosaurus leg bone that looks exactly like this from the Centrosaurus bone bed in Dinosaur Provincial Park Alberta Canada open to any opinions.
  16. Stegoceras vertebrae!

    Hi I recently found theses online are they Stegoceras vertebrae? the small ones are 0.5 mm to 13 mm the larger ones are 0.7 mm to 15 mm and there from the dinosaur park formation of Alberta thanks.
  17. Hi decided to start showing of my collection so I started doing them in individual post here are ammonites/ammolite enjoy!!
  18. Another important dinosaur paper that is paywalled. Went the rental route again. The paper takes the first good look at the Skull of the Dromaeosaurid, Saurornitholestes langstoni from the Dinosaur Park Formation. It provided great insight into Dromaeosaurid's and specifically the dentition which we as collectors are most interested in. Similar species are found in Montana's Judith River and Two Medicine Formation. The biggest surprise were the premaxillary teeth, they are distinctive, and teeth previously identified in the Dinosaur Park Formation as Zapsalis abradens can now be identified as the second premaxillary tooth of S. langstoni. The morphology and wear patterns suggest that these may have been specialized for preening feathers. Zapsalis is one of those tooth taxons and brings into question if its indeed valid or just synonymous with Saurornitholestes. The paper makes the following statement "The similarity between the premaxillary teeth of Saurornitholestes and Zapsalis show that the latter is a dromaeosaurid and suggests that the two genera are synonymous. However the differences suggest they are distinct at least at the species level. Pending the discovery of additional Associated skeletal material from the Judith River formation of Montana it is recommended that the two genera be kept separate." The holotype tooth of Zapsalis (right) from the JRF is slightly different than the Saurornitholestes tooth. See Fig. Might just be tooth to tooth variations. https://anatomypubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/ar.24241#.XXZqJ1PoYmg.twitter Cranial Anatomy of New Specimens of Saurornitholestes langstoni (Dinosauria, Theropoda, Dromaeosauridae) from the Dinosaur Park Formation (Campanian) of Alberta Philip J.

  19. Unknown tyrannosaur

    Hi I found this and am wondering is this a new species of tyrannosaur I don’t think it’s albertosaurus libratus because it is in a collection with gorgosaurus libratus and albertosaurus sarcophagcus so if it was albertosaurus libratus there would not be any specimens named gorgosaurus libratus there are other specimens then just this tooth too any information? Thanks.
  20. Is this akylosaur skin

    Is this akylosaur skin it matches the euoplcephalus skin above found in dinosaur provincial park.
  21. Dinosaur or Mammal bone ID help

    I found this on the bank of the Red Deer River in Alberta Canada. I have no idea what it's from. I have never found a fossilized bone before. Does anyone have any ideas? Not sure if it could be from a Dinosaur or a mammal like a young mammoth or something. I would love to get some ideas on this one. I am willing to answer any questions or take new photos if needed.
  22. Can anyone ID this?

    Hi everyone. I found this on the Red Deer River in Alberta Canada. I was wondering if anyone could ID what animal this fossil came from? I cant get all images in one post in will post the other photos in the comments.
  23. The Royal Tyrrell Museum

    I had recommended going through the Royal Tyrrell Museum to a friend from Kansas last year in September and he was very impressed (I wondered if it was just because he couldn't get out and golf in the snow). This year I went with my 9 year old Granddaughter who didn't sound like she wanted to go. Long story short, we spent a whole day there. I was sort of surprised when I heard they only have 1/2 of 1 percent of the the collection on display. I can only guess that they have a huge warehouse someplace with the rest of the collection catalogued and stored.
  24. Any ideas what this is ?

    I found this one in the same location of a few other confirmed fossils, is it just a rock or should I investigate this further?
  25. Corals?

    Hi everyone! I retook some photos with the tips I was given (Thankyou) found in a riverbed, Alberta, Canada
