  1. Nodosaur Tooth

    I was looking at a number of teeth in my collection and I had this labeled as an Ankylosaur tooth, but looking at it I am thinking it is a Nodosaur tooth. I know that this tooth came from Canada, but have no other info on it. @Troodon ?
  2. Favosites sp. from the Devonian Hungry Hollow member in Arkona, Canada. One of the more interesting corals I've collected, I'm trying to narrow down the species if possible. Any ideas?
  3. 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
  4. What's this?

    This was sitting in my yard when I bought this house. The owner found it but didn't know what it was. Now every time I walk by it, it bugs me. Anyone have any idea's? The fossil's here on Vancouver Island are cretaceous sea creatures for the most part if that helps. Thanks!

  6. 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.
  7. Thaleops? Cephalon?

    Found this one in Bowmanville (Mid Ordovician, Cobourg? Formation) last weekend. My best guess is Thaleops laurentiana cephalon but id like to have a better idea what it is before I attempt any more prep. Have not tried yet but probing with air abrasion looks like it will be difficult since the matrix is full of calcite or some other crystals. @Malcolmt @Kane @Northern Sharks

  9. Late Cretaceous chalk in North America

    Hey everyone I know I've been lately rather inactive on TFF; I was held back by fieldwork and other reasons (though do expect some posts about the fieldwork next weekend ). But anyway, onto what I came to talk about... Would anyone know of some good exposures of Late Cretaceous chalk in Canada or USA? I'm thinking specifically about Campanian chalk or, even better, Maastrichtian chalk.. It would be great if the exposed chalk is very fossiliferous, of course. Thanks for any help! -Christian
  10. Fossil identification

    Hi I found this fossil in Golden, BC and I can't identify it. I brought it to a BC Paleontological Alliance show today and all they could tell me was that it's an arthropod (probably from the Ordovician) Any tips are appreciated. Thanks
  11. Trilobite ID

    Hey there, I recently acquired this nice Calymene trilobite that came from the Silurian Jupiter Formation of Anticosti Island, Canada. Pretty happy with it as it's my first calymene in my collection. It was labeled and sold as Calymene Gamechei by the collector and preparator. I haven't had much time to do a thorough check, but quickly glancing at it before work makes me think the ID could be a bit off by the cephalon alone. Possibly a Dicalymene Schucherti or some other undescribed Calymene Sp. instead? I only had time take a quick photo before I left, so I'll post lateral and dorsal views later on after work. Thanks for the help! -Jackson
  12. Possible theropod jaw fragment?

    Hi is this a Theropod jaw fragment from the belly river group Canada?
  13. After numerous attempts to locate a certain elusive and geographically remote late Cenomanian bonebed in the Pasquia Hills of Saskatchewan, I was recently successful at finding some of the material and bringing it home. This bonebed was deposited approximately 94 million years ago near the north-eastern margins of the Western Interior Seaway during a period of sediment starvation, resulting in the accumulation and formation of a bioclastic conglomerate made mostly of teeth, bones, and coprolites. Most striking is the abundance of Hesperornithiform bird fossils from the site, namely Pasquiaornis. More information can be found in this study here. Individual bones and teeth are easy to extract from the relatively soft matrix which can usually be broken down either with hand tools, water, or vinegar. The most commonly occuring fossils are shark and fish teeth, including Hybodus, Ptychodus, Carcharias, Squalicorax and Enchodus. Other teeth include those of birds and reptiles, mostly plesiosaurs. Besides the teeth, bone fragments, coprolites, chunks of bentonite, pebbles, fish scales and fish vertebrae are also abundant. My question is whether the bones I have tentatively identified are from Pasquiaornis, and also if anyone has other opinions and conclusive IDs on some of the other miscellaneous fossils I've included. If necessary I can take more photos, and may keep this thread updated with further discoveries as more material is sifted. Photo 1: A sample of the bonebed before prepping. This particular chunk features relatively small fossils, others were made primarily of larger inclusions, Photos 2, 3: Some complete and fragmented long bones, suspected to be from Pasquiaornis, Photo 4: Teeth suspected to originate from Pasquiaornis, along with a suspected claw at the bottom left of the photo, Photo 5: Other miscellaneous fossils from the bonebed, including an assortment of shark, fish, and plesiosaur (?) teeth. Also a sample of some of the bone fragments, vertebrae and coprolites commonly found within the material, Thanks for your attention. Any additional information or questions are greatly appreciated.
  14. What is this?

    Found this on the beach/shallow water on the North Saskatchewan River. I have no clue what it is but I would like to!
  15. Trout River NWT find - fossil or not?

    Found this at Trout River, NWT amongst other fossils in an area that is supposedly Silurian period. Rock is only porous on one side. I have no idea if it is a fossil or if the rock has been through some sort of physical change. Let me know if higher res pictures are needed. All responses are appreciated.
  16. 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.
  17. Hey guys, new collector looking for some wisdom. Over the past year, I've collected over 150 Fossil specimens from the Chatham-Kent Area. The Majority of my collection is Middle-Devonian Corals and Brachiopods, but I've also found some Petrified Wood and Fossilized Bone. I'm at the point where I can't keep track of my collection and want to start labeling and identifying my fossils for documentation and display purposes. What resources do you guys use to identify fossils you've collected in the field? How accurate can I realistically date things?
  18. 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.
  19. Any idea what this is?

    Hello! This (potential?) fossil was found down at lake Huron by Goderich Ontario, Canada. It was given to me by someone else because the pattern is reminiscent of a spider web. I'm more of an arachnid collector than a fossil collector, so I have no idea where to begin with this one! I hoped someone would have an idea of what it is, if it's a fossil at all! It's about 1 inch and 1/3rd in diameter, and roughly one half 2/3rds of an inch 'tall' when laid flat. It may be difficult to tell from the images, but the 'front' dips inwards towards the center. I hope that helps in addition to the images.
  20. 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.
  21. Hi all! I managed to go on 3 large fossil hunting trips this weekend and pulled in easily the BIGGEST haul so far with the most variety as well! The first two pictures were from Mimico creek and the rest were a mix of Humber river and a separate section of Mimico creek. I managed to pull in my second trilobite from the area so that was very exciting! Also pulled a bunch of stuff that I was not able to identify: /\ This was the haul from last Friday night /\ This is the trilobite I found!!! Very excited to have a second one - its been a while since the last one I found /\ This was the full haul for the weekend trip at Mimico and Humber /\ Some Orthoconic Nautiloids as usual. Although it seems that this isn't just the same species I usually find as some of the patterns were much smoother than what I usually find A couple decent looking Crinoid stalks /\ /\ Lots of different shells this time, with a nice range of lined shells as well as 'mussel' looking shells (don't know the scientific names for these ones yet - sorry :/) /\ A close-up of the real nicely defined deathbed of TONS of shells! Unfortunately the hammer I used for cracking bounced off this rock and mashed my thumb in so that wasn't very fun. But its healing up nicely so I'd say it was worth it haha /\ Variety different sizes of coral (if you guys could help me identify which type that would be sweet!) /\ These were the weird ones. I'm not even sure if these are even fossils but I figured I might as well take em just in case - better safe than sorry!! (I am posting these two in identification later!) I was very proud of this haul! Lots of diversity compared to the usual hunt which is nice because I'm kind of getting a little tired of the mountains of Nautiloids we have piling up in the collection Let me know what you guys think of these ones!!! -Em
  22. Hi. I have heard of Precambrian stromatolites found in the Precambrian rocks of Ontario but I am curious, has there been any reports of Ediacaran or Mistaken Point- like fossils being found in the Canadian Shield of Ontario?
