  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Hi everyone I just read that a New pterosaur has been named it’s called Cryodrakon Boreas it’s name means cold dragon of the North wind it’s wingspan was 32.8 feet and it’s diet consisted of baby dinosaurs mammals and lizards it was found 30 years ago in the dinosaur park formation of Alberta Canada then it was thought to be a Quetzalcoatlus until 30 years later it was studied and is now its own genus here’s to learn more.
  5. 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.

  6. Literally Rattled

    Hiking on another beautiful spring day near Manyberries AB. Found some dinosaur bones, mostly broken pieces. Hadrosaur, ankylosaur, tyrannosaur, raptor, croc, turtle, ...rattlesnake! I love it when they rattle at you from under the sagebrush from 3 ft away...so polite of them! Among other things, i found this strange specimen. It looks very ...dinosaur-like
  7. 2019 Alberta dinosaur fossils and more

    I have been out discovering some fossils and other cool stuff this spring. Lots of generally recognizable material but specifically I dont know what exactly I have here. Hopefully some of the enthusiasts and experts on the forum can help me out?
  8. Dinosaur park formation fossils

    Does anyone have photos of fossils from dinosaur provincial park Alberta if so can you send me them because I’m doing reaserch on the dinosaur park formation
  9. Some of my stuff

    I've not been able to get on this site as much as I would have liked to since I joined only a few months ago. I have a few bits that were left to me and I hold very near to me. Nothing here is for sale, but I just wanted to share some pictures of my collection. Please feel free to correct me, as I've self taught myself what some of these pieces are. My cousin's mother-in-law was one of the 1st amateur female paleontologists in Alberta and she has long passed and her item were given to me.

  10. This report is a bit late, but better late than never! During late July through to mid August 2018 i was on a research trip to study a new Canadian dinosaur footprint site for my Masters degree project. I am based in Australia, and this was the first time i had been to Canada! So of course i had to make the most of it and pay a visit to the world renowned Dinosaur Provincial Park in southern Alberta, arguably the richest site in the world for dinosaur fossils. The park is the best exposure of the Dinosaur Park Formation (which it is now named after), which dates to about 76.5 million years ago during the mid-Campanian. I had long read about this location and watched it on documentaries for so many years growing up as a kid. Finally being there in person was very surreal! I was quite lucky and managed to go on a long, extended walk through the park with one of the guides for about 6 hours in total. In this relatively short amount of time i observed so many amazing fossils. I must have been completely desensitised within the first 30 minutes! It really is incredible how much fossil material there is lying all over the park. In Australia, whole scientific papers are written about isolated or fragmentary dinosaur bones, yet here they were just lying everywhere! The pictures really speak for themselves. As said, all of these fossils were observed in the field during a single days visit to the park. As this is a World Heritage site, nothing was taken, all finds were put straight back onto the ground after i took these photos. It's a VERY hard thing to do, but rules are rules. The only thing that was removed from the park on my trip was my best find of the day... a near-perfect 5.3 cm tyrannosaur tooth from Gorgosaurus!!!! This find was too special to leave behind, so the park tour guide GPS marked the location and brought it back for display, likely at the visitor centre or as a demonstration piece for their guided tours. To say that i have found a tyrannosaur tooth is a great honour! You may remember it from the July 2018 VFOTM poll. Without further ado, here are the pics! It is going to take multiple posts to fit them all in, so scroll all the way down to see them all! Various dinosaur vertebrae. Everything from hadrosaurs (duck billed dinosaurs) and ceratopsians (horned dinosaurs) to theropods (two legged meat eaters) and ankylosaurs (armoured dinosaurs). These were so common! I would probably pick a new one up every 5 minutes or so. Ankylosaur tooth
  11. My June expedition was super fun and interesting to see what I could find. I have lots of unknowns and lots of fossil material that others will be able to help id. Thanks in advance for all those that join the discussion and help me figure out my library of dinosaur fossils.
  12. I went out for a fossil hunting trip to southeastern red deer river valley in southern Alberta and I found material from tyrannosaur, raptor, hadrosaur, ceratopsian, turtle, croc, and fish. I even found a snail shell fossilized out of ironstone. I am struggling with the ID on two of my finds. This claw I think might be ornithomimus. But the tip is broken and also very stout. At first I thought it was just broken but I'm thinking it is unusually short. The other is a tooth that I have not seen before. After some research I'm guessing Pachycepholusaurus?
  13. New Ornithomimid from Alberta

    A new Ornithomomid, Rativates evadens, from the Dinosaur Park Formation is described in this paper. SVP paper paywalled for non members http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/02724634.2016.1221415?journalCode=ujvp20
  14. Hi. Im hoping someone could identify this specimen. It's very small, a little less than an inch long. I thought it was bone fragment at first but it also resembles some claw characteristics.
  15. We have a new Ornithomimid from the badlands of Dinosaur Park in Alberta Rativates evadens http://www.sci-news.com/paleontology/rativates-evadens-ostrich-mimic-dinosaur-04228.html
  16. Theropod Bone?

    Ok, i have a dinosaur bone that is hollow. I am wondering whether or not it is a theropod bone or not, as theropods had hollow bones. Can somebody please identify it for me? I found this bone in the Dinosaur Park Formation of southern Alberta, right outside of Dinosaur Provincial Park
