  1. Dinosaur Provincial Park 2018

    Today two years ago I was in Dinosaur Provincial Park! So I just wanted to share some photos from when I was there. Here is a Ceratopsian indet leg bone Here is me beside the leg bone Next is a footprint from a Hadrosaur indet from a trackway
  2. I have recently been looking at some of my photos from trips and found photos of when I was in Alberta in 2018. I saw a photo of a Hadrosaur footprint from a trackway in Dinosaur Provincial Park that me and my brother found. I also read not to long ago that no big trackways have been found in this area so I decided to give the information and location to the Palaeontologist at the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, Alberta. I was responded by Dr. Caleb Brown, he told me that I was most likely right and it was probably Hadrosaur. I am currently waiting for him to reply again to see what he thinks about the other information of the trackway and footprint that I gave him. One of the footprints outlined in the photo with pen.
  3. “@Monica Yes, there are just so many fossils here that now only the best material is actually collected. This usually means anything articulated or reasonably complete. Isolated bones like the ones in my pictures are all pretty much ignored, which is sad, as yes they will inevitably just erode away. I think there needs to be a better system personally. It doesn't make sense to just let these great fossils be destroyed by the elements. But if collecting was allowed how could it be regulated to make sure only expendable material was taken? And how would you stop people then selling those bones for a profit? It's a hard situation, you want to save the fossils, but letting collectors take things opens up a bunch of other issues as well.” @Paleoworld-101 I have a idea for this. What if they would have a setup of some sort at the entrance of the park where the park staff would check to see if you have collected any valuable specimens. If not you would have legal ownership over the fossil, they would do this to teach people about there fossil recourse and so the fossils would not sit there and erode away over time since they would be able to bring some fossils home and learn about them. Keeping the good specimens to the Palaeontologist but the other fossils that are no use to the Palaeontologist to the guest preventing these fossils to erode away and keeping all Paleontological and geological recourses and history. This is just something I was thinking after reading this in @Paleoworld-101s topic probably won’t happen though.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Is this ankylosaur skin

    Is this ankylosaur skin it matches the euoplcephalus skin above found in dinosaur provincial park.
  7. Can anyone indentify the species of hadrosaur or ceratopsian left this leg bone in dinosaur provincial park Alberta Canada?
  8. Any thought on what this is?

    Hi All, looking for ideas again! I came across this piece in the collection that was left to me and I am wondering if anyone has any ideas as to what it might be? Probably found in Cretaceous Alberta in Dinosaur Provincial Park. I was going to guess corporlite, but I really have no idea! All thoughts greatly appreciated!!!
  9. 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
  10. DPP Theropods by size

    Found this rather interesting diagram in the Currie & Longrich (2009) paper describing Hesperonychus. The diagram shows outlines of several carnivorous theropods from the Dinosaur Provincial Park assemblage, to illustrate the size & morphological range. I thought some people might like to see this @Troodon @Canadawest @Paleoworld-101
  11. The skull you see in the photos was collected in 1916 from what is known today as Dinosaur Provincial Park, AB by famous paleontologist C.H. Sternberg for the NHM London. The remains were described as 'nothing but rubbish' by palaeontologist A.S. Woodward and sat in collections for the best part of a century. It was not until the nineties that a team of scientists, including Andy Farke and NHM dinolab found the remains and realized that they might be of a new species! As with most centrosaurine ceratopsians, the key was in the pattern of ornamentation (spikes and hooks) at the rear of the parietal, the bone forming the central section of the frill. Although fragmentary and in poor condition, enough unique features were identified to confirm it as a new species. Named Spinops sterbergorum in honor of Sternberg, who first discovered it 102 year ago.

  12. My good news, part 2...

    Hey everyone, It's Christian here. I'm participating in a Dinosaur Provincial Park excavation! It shall be in 2 weeks. The team shall consist of University of Alberta students, various volunteers, Eva Koppelhus and THE Philip J. Currie! I'm very excited for this excavation, as it is my first (which is also taking place in the "Capital of Dinosaur Paleontology" ). Best wishes, Christian

Headless dinosaur reunited with its skull, one century later Paleontologists pair prehistoric skull with skeleton from Dinosaur Provincial Park By Katie Willis on April 26, 2017 https://www.ualberta.ca/science/science-news/2017/april/paleontologists-pair-prehistoric-skull-with-skeleton-from-dinosaur-provincial-park The paper is: Katherine Bramble, Philip J.
