  1. Is this Dino egg real ? Or just a rock?
  2. Hey yall Im looking for untouched fossils to practice prepping. Dont really care what it is. To trade I have casts of a Acrocanthrosaurus footprint. I made these from a trackway were I live. They can be seen here Please email me info at glenn@drivetanks.com
  3. Dromaeosaur

    Dinosaur teeth from North Carolina are rare and have only been found in a handful of locations. Other than one well known location, these other sites are kept very close to the vest for obvious reasons. Most North Carolina collectors will never find one. This tooth is a Dromaeosauridae, probably the most common theropod known from North Carolina. My tentative I.D. ?Sauronitholestes langstoni is based on photographs of a tooth that has been positively I.D.'d by Dr. David Schwimmer from the same site where I found this tooth. Once I get a confirmation or negative assessment I will either remove the question marks from my I.D. or just assign it as Dromaeosauridae indet.
  4. Thought to be a fake, but tests confirm it’s the real deal: http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/halszkaraptor-dinosaur-fossil-1.4052005
  5. Tiny Mystery Tooth: Dino? Croc? Mos?

    I found this tiny tooth today looking through some matrix I had previously searched. I always search any matrix at least a second time after re-cleaning it. The matrix is from a Cretaceous river site here in North Carolina. The site is Black Creek Group, Bladen Formation. It is mainly marine, but many dinosaur teeth and bones are found there. My first thought was croc (Leidysuchus?), far posterior. But soemthing does not look right to me for it to be that. Looking for your thoughts. The tooth is 6.5 mm long, 4.9 mm wide and 4.1 mm tall. I apologize for the pics, my digital microscope is on the fritz. I edited these to try and get the best pictures I could.
  6. I went also to see the abîme de Bramabiau where you can see Dino tracks,you walk under a fossil river bed
  7. "Charlie Edwards was enjoying a birthday 'sleepover' at the world famous attraction when he noticed the error. Charlie realised a silhouette display which was meant to represent an Oviraptor - a small carnivore with a parrot-like beak - was in fact a completely different dinosaur." Full story here! http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/07/28/natural-history-museum-changes-dinosaur-display-10-year-old/
  8. Fossils? Found in Pennsylvania

    I put water on the rock to clean the dirt off
  9. Fossil?

  10. Dinosaur bone fragments?

  11. Fossil if so what is it?

  12. Fossil Bone?

  13. First post on the forum but figured this would be the best place to get some information. I found this "rock" yesterday while checking a bean field near Scottsbluff, NE. I'm an agronomist so I spend all summer wandering around in cultivated fields and this is the first "rock" of this nature I have found (lots of fossils in the area but usually just toe bones, vertebrae, etc...) Upon inspection it appeared much different than anything I've ever found. Unfortunately it looks to hat been hit with various farm implements over the year which has left some chunks missing. After researching online, I concluded that it may be a fossilized egg of some sort due to the shape and the cracking pattern. What do the "experts" think? Another image
  14. Fossils

    What is this fossil dino? Is this real? It is a raptor but I don't know what raptor
  15. Is this a icythosaurus skull? Please help identify.
  16. Dino foot prints in MD

    Does anyone know where I might be a blessing to legally be hunt for dino footprints in frederick county MD? I will be passing through on a trip next week and would like to do some hunting. If you know a location and I want to go on a hunt Tuesday or Thursday PM me. Thank you.
  17. Hi, I'm sort of new to the forum but have been digging round the streams on NJ for a while. Over the winter I picked up dremel that's solely dedicated to prepping fossils. Anyway, I'm looking for a site or person where is can buy bulk material/concretion/nodules to work on.
  18. Dinosaur vert ID

    Picked up this vert cheap today. The guy said he thought it was a dinosaur vertebra. He bought it a long time ago and list all the day on it. He remembers it coming from the USA and that's about all he remembers. It is 4 inches by 3 inches wide and very heavy for it's size. Any ideas?
  19. BONE ID

    Found this in the lower Brazos River, Tx. Any guesses? Thanks in advance
  20. Plesiosaur vert

    A very rare find from North Carolina. As is most any dinosaur material. I am currently in the process of donating this vert to the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, to become their first Plesiosaur vert from North Carolina in their collection.
  21. Recently bought a couple of Grallator dinosaur footprints. A Podokesaurus South Hadley, MA in the Connecticut River Valley. and one from La Grand-Combe, the Mont Lozère, France. Curious to see what others have.

  23. Masiakasaurus vs Noasaurus!

    Welcome to the first entry of my dino blog! I figured for the first entry I should do something exciting and personal to me, so I'm doing a face-off between my two favourite dinosaurs: masiakasaurus and noasaurus! These two dinos are roughly the same size and are the two smallest abelisaurids found so far. Before we get into the match-up, lets look at some stats and figures for the reptiles themselves. First off we have masiakasaurus, a piscivorous dinosaur with long, outward jutting teeth designed to capture and make sure any fish caught can't escape. Its arms had to be strong in order for it to hold on to its wriggling and squirming prey, and it's fingers end with hooked claws that would latch onto any fish snatched from the riverbank. It was 5.6 feet long (2 metres) and definitely is a strong and deadly competitor. Now we have noasaurus, an abelisaurid that closely resembles the maniraptorans, for the killing claw on nova's hands was originally thought to be based on it's foot, like a raptor. Noasaurus was an active hunter and could reach blisteringly fast speeds, presumably using similar hunting techniques to deinonychus and velociraptor- going for the soft, fleshy part throat of the animal. This abelisaur was 7.9 feet long (2.6 metres) and will definitely prove more than a match for masiakasaurus. THE FIGHT: This fight would probably only happen if noasaurus' hunting grounds started to clash with the section of the river masiakasaurus hunts by. As rivers generate a large amount of noise, noasaurus would definitely gain the advantage as it snuck up on masiaka, who would be facing the river, searching for prey. Noasaurus' first move would presumably to lunge from behind onto masiakasaurus' neck, attempting to get a killing strike in with the claw on it's hand. This move would likely push them both into the river (dinosaurs are pretty dumb, so noasaurus wouldn't have planned for that to happen!) where masiakasaurus would gain the advantage. It's outward jutting teeth would have to be strong to hold staring and thrashing prey, but they just weren't suited for attacking other dinosaurs. The hooked talons on it's hands, however... As masiakasaurus lacks hunting and attacking instinct, it would probably throw some wild slashes at the lightly built noasaurus, who would be struggling to keep it's snout above the water. Masiakasaurus would probably have experience from falling in to it's hunting grounds, and so would be prepared to get out. And as masiakasaurus would escape the confines of the water, the blood and gashes from the battle would attract some other aspiring aquatic predators. The poor, drowning noasaurus would presumably be finished by a crocodile of some sort or, once it drowned, scavenged by some smaller, predatory fish. So, in the end... MASIAKASAURUS WINS!

  25. Track

    Hi, Last month I was browsing an estate auction, saw this footprint and without knowing anymore, since the price seemed reasonable I bought it.... I mean, never seen a "dino track" available. At least something new in the collection. The old man i bought it from, told me that if he remember well, he geot it from "someplace in the northeast" (a 80 something year old kid who was downsizing all his home), that´s all. If someone has an idea of where it could come from and what it could be I´ll appreciate it. Luis
