  1. I was browsing agatized dinosaur bone fragments on a dealer’s website and they made an interesting claim that based on a the cells and cell structure on a dinosaur bone, you can sometimes narrow down a list of species it could have came from. Could this work out if you have enough bone? Could it work for both agatized and non-agatized dinosaur bones? Personally, I’d think that you have to have enough bone there to narrow it down, not fragments or chunks. I’d like to have a discussion over this, so don’t be afraid to put your two cents in! Just for fun, I’ll post a couple of my own agatized dinosaur bones. This is not an ID thread.
  2. I have recently purchase two large pieces of Jurassic aged bone from the Morrison Formation near the Dinosaur National Monument in Northwest Colorado. They seemed to be shaped in a way that it maybe possible to give them a general ID, I don't know if it can of course go as far as ID the specific dinosaur of course but if anyone with experience may know what kind of bones they are, any help would be appreciated as I would like to label them for the collection. As it stands the first larger one I believe to be likely sauropod bone or some other large herbivore while the second one I think may be theropod of some sort. Also if it's possible would anyone be able to tell what kind of bone they maybe like for example limb, leg, metatarsal, etc. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated! The larger bone measures nearly 9 1/2 inches long The smaller one measures approximately 6 1/2 inches long
  3. My Jurassic Park - Bones

    A few items I recently picked up at the Tucson show. Others will follow Nice size Pterosaur upper beak. Big Dorsal from a Sauropod - needs to be prepped to remove matrix glued on the bone. Will tackle after the show. Very Arthritic bone.. believe its Phalanx 2 but fits well with the above carpal. A Theropod indet but similar to a Spino on the most recent paper. Who really knows at this point with how little we have to go with and just sketches
  4. I recently heard of the discovery of soft tissues in a tyrannosaurus rex femur. That was a few years ago, but I was asking myself if I could try it out myself. Has somebody already tried this, or knows hown to do it? Thanks, Ramon G.
  5. I have a secret place in Texas in which I've found many excellent fossils of sea creatures, such as clams or mollusks and other shellfish. I may also have found bones of some kind, and saw impressions that may have been dinosaur tracks. I am no paleontologist and would not know what made the impressions, but I know that dinosaur tracks were found in other nearby areas. In particular, I found large, intact, fossilized shells there that match some of the photos of "bivalves" I've seen online. I found many smaller cone shaped shell fossils, and oddly shaped rocks that may have been bones. Plus other things, such as rocks that seemed to contain tiny plant or animal fossils. The fossils were plentiful and easy to find, with little or no digging needed, so I may be the only one who knew of this place, which is in a washed out gulley in a remote part of a public city or county park (NOT a state park). My question -- can people legally gather fossils from such a place? Would paleontologists be interested in knowing about such a place? I no longer live near there and worry that one of Texas' new toll roads may have destroyed the site by now. Should I have said something, to prevent that? Unless somebody else has discovered the place, there are probably still some fossils around the site, even if a toll road was put in, but they may no longer lay atop the ground like they once did. I accidentally forgot to pack my fossil collection when moved, so I have no samples or photos to show anybody.
  6. These camarasaurus metacarpals were discovered within a 20' area of the digsite. A number of other camarasaurus bones were found in the same area. They all came from a smaller, sub-adult camarasaurus. I'm trying to figure out if they all come from the same foot. (left, front foot) I have only two, or three worn out toe bones, and the big claw was missing. High energy water ripped this dinosaur apart. Parts of a diplodocus were scattered around the same area.
  7. I'm extremely excited to announce that two days ago at 3:30 a newly discovered dinosaur vertebra was recovered from a Late Cretaceous Campanian formation in West Tennessee. This is only the 4th. dinosaurian vertebra to ever be found in Tennessee! It's also the first dinosaur vertebra I've ever found in my life. The specimen is from the tail section on the vertebrae column of a Hadrosaur. The neural canal and neural arch are still plainly visible. Specimen is missing the neural spine and also possible Chevron bone. This is a historic achievement for paleontology in Tennessee and here is the first look. As I'm sure by now, everyone on the Forum knows, my cell takes terrible pics, I hope to prep the specimen soon and show better shots of it. These photos were taken the day it was recovered and I have no others presently available. I will post more pics on this thread when the specimen is cleaned.
  8. Need I.d. For Cretaceous Vertebra Please.

    These are bad photos I know, I'm just looking for a general classification....Dinosaur or Marine Reptile. It sure is looking Dinosaurish to me. It displays a flat surface area on each face. In the photos, the top surface is flat , and is what I take to be the neurospine canal. The vert is longer than wide. Recovered today. Looks like a Hadrosauridae vert to me. If this doesn't look Dinosaurian to you, please share with me your thoughts on what Marine Reptile you think it may be.
  9. Hi everyone. I just found this forum and am hoping to get some useful information. I have been doing a lot of research, and have been for most of my life on Fossils, stones and bones. I'll be attending college soon to study Paleontology and geology. It's been a dream of mine since I was very young. I do have some questions though, as I was not able to find answers. As far as collecting vertebrates, all the research I have done, I have concluded that I cannot even keep vertebrate fossils, I must turn them over to the public museums etc. I do see people buying/selling bones, and teeth and am not sure how they're doing it? I know the laws on collecting invertebrate specimens but can't figure out how one becomes a fossil dealer or one who is able to sell bones on Ebay. Can anyone give me some advice/information? I'm at a loss. I do have some bone fragments and teeth, that I'd bought from local stone shops. I don't have a clue on how they're able to sell them, but I am interested in this. Again, I cannot find any information whatsoever on how people become fossil dealers or even sell them. Where does one start when looking for vertebrates? Thank you all in advance!
