  1. https://www.msn.com/en-us/video/wonder/rare-dinosaur-tooth-discovery-sheds-light-on-history-of-north-america/vi-BBBsJL7?ocid=edgsp Check out his cool video! Basically a Ceratopsian tooth discovered in Mississippi. From the Owl Creek Formation of sediments roughly 68-66 myo The gentleman that found it stated that ceratopsid fossils have never been found in the eastern US before!!
  2. I would like to introduce myself and my work. I grew up on a small farm in southwestern Ohio loaded with great locations for the collection of ordovician fossils. I earned my BA in geology and taught fro approximately 30 years. I retired from education in 2015 and have been working as a sculptor since. I do some animal and wildlife work, some fantasy sculptures and some paleontology themed pieces. I aways try to have my pieces looking and behaving in a lifelike and believable fashion as well as being technically accurate. My sculptures are created in clay, I then make rubber molds, cast a wax in the mold and then have the wax cast in bronze in a foundry. Sculpting in bronze is more expensive than resin but the material is strong and incredibly durable. I am currently working on another sculpture of a heteromorphic ammonite that I also need help with. Let me first attach sample of my sculptures to show you my work. Thank you.
  3. Just thought I would show Sam Noble's 'trophy' specimen-a Pentaceratops with the largest skull of any animal ever found Apparently, this specimen had been hidden away in the collection for awhile before its significance was realized. Unfortunately, it was a big restoration project, as it had lots of plaster, bolts, and rods throughout in a prior attempt to keep it together. Considering its past, it proudly stands on display today with nary an indication that it was once a "Pentaborg"
  4. Hard to keep up to new discoveries and when I see one from the Judith River Formation from Montana even though its a year old it attracts my attention. Material from this fauna is constantly being offered for sale and can be collected with access to ranches. A new ceratopsid, Spiclypeus shipporum from the lower Coal Ridge Member of the Judith River Formation was described and I've attached the article for viewing. I want to remind collectors that its not possible to know the species of teeth, horns and unguals being sold from large bodied ceratopsians. So be careful of sellers trying to put species names to their offerings. This figure was included in the paper and what's interesting is it shows what dinosaurs have been described from this fauna and material that as only been identified to a family level.

  5. Hi everyone! I found this in Montana this summer, and I'm pretty sure it's a triceratops digit. If so, is there a way to tell which it is? Just bored and curious. Also, which side would the vale core have attached to? The bumpy, textured side? It was pretty shattered when I found it, so I pieced it together. The white stuff is pales putty I just haven't painted yet. Thank you! -Lauren
  6. A member of the forum asked if I cam put a topic together to help identify claws from the Hell Creek/Lance formation. Its fraught with difficulty since so little has been published and described from these faunas but will attempt to put something together. All subject to discussion and mistakes. Although the focus there is with the dinosaurs of the Upper Maastrichtian its applicable to most of the other faunas of the Campanian and Lower Maastrichtian ages. Ceratopsian indet. This family of dinosaurs include Triceratops, Torosaurus and other large bodied Ceratopsaian yet to be described. Identifying unguals to a Genus/Species level is impossible and these are best identified as Ceratopsian indet. Ceratopsian unguals are best described as being rugose with many pits/holes on the front perimeter of the ungual. There is also a ledge (more pronounced on some than others) on the ventral side as shown by my red marks. I find it difficult to tell the difference between hand and foot unguals of the same size other than the wings are not has pronounced. The more symmetrical the wings are the closer the ungual is to the midline Digit III. Photos are the best way to show what they look like and here are some from my collection Dorsal view Ungual 1 Ventral View Ungual 1 Dorsal View Ungual 2 Ventral View Ungual 2 Dorsal View Ungual 3 Ventral View Ungual 3 An illustration of a Hand (Manus) A photo of a composite foot Leptoceratops indet. A small Ceratopsian in these faunas is a Leptoceratops. Teeth are the most common material found or sold but there are skeletal elements found. Here is an ungual I found in the Hell Creek. The dorsal view is like an isosceles triangle and very compressed. Dorsal View Ventral View Since these are extremely rare here is an additional photo of a associated set of unguals from the Two Medicine Formation An illustration of an campanian foot An illustration of a digit.
