  2. Hi. I have decided to start collecting dinosaur fossils from as many UK locations as possible. After doing research on the Internet I understand how to tell the difference between dinosaur and non dinosaur bones but can anyone suggest any books which explain the difference between the bones of each type of dinosaur, such as Theropods and Sauropods? Thanks, Daniel
  3. Hi there, I'd like to learn more about paleontology and was wondering which books would you recommend for a beginner? I'm looking for books on ammonites, trilobites and dinosaur paleobiology. Also are there any books on Ankylosaurids around? Thank you for your help. There are so many books I don't know where to start. Jojo
  4. What is this fossil dino? Is this real? It is a raptor but I don't know what raptor
  5. Hi all, I've had this incomplete vertebra on my display shelf for it too damaged to determine what dinosaur / group of dinosaurs it may belong too? Sharper pictures or pictures of different angles / details will be taken asap if needed! Thank you! Marc

  8. Found this specimen at approximately 9,500 feet in elevation in the Albuquerque, NM area. I have taken photographs with measurements. Was found in loose to rocky soil on the surface. I did no digging to locate specimen but basically picked it up off the ground after noticing it sticking up. I have no knowledge of what it could be other than the fact that it looks like a tooth. Thanks in advance.
  9. Hi Me and my brother are hoping that we've found a dinosaur. It was found in Lower Jurassic marine deposits in the UK. The age of the deposits are Hettangian and we think it's from the Psiloceras Planorbis zone, which is almost at the base of the Jurassic. I've posted a thread on the UK Fossil Forum here: The important picture so far is this one: It shows what I think is a line of tail verts, with some neurals broken of and some still buried under the matrix. At first I thought they might be plesiosaur phlanages but they were with some long bones that looked like land animal bones. I think the large flat bone that I have partly uncovered is the animal's pelvis. To give you an idea of scale, the verts are about an inch long. Land animals in this deposit are virtually unheard of. My hope is that it is a dinosaur, but a crocodile is another possibility. Again crocodiles from these deposits are unheard of, so that'd be great as well. If anyone has any thoughts then I'd really like to hear from them. I've spent most of the week on the internet researching this as I have virtually no knowledge of dinosaur anatomy. What I have found out is that if it is an animal, especially a dinosaur, then it is extremely rare. Thanks Nick
  10. hello all, just wondering if you know any LEGAL PUBLIC fossil sites open to the public in Canada, Ontario?
  11. Hi I recently acquired some foot bones from a dromaeosaurid. Attached please find a sideview as well as a topview of the bones. I was hoping that it is possible to: 1) identify the genus and 2) identify which foot bones I have exactly Location where the fossil has been found: North of Dupuyer, Montana, USA Geological formation: Two Medicine - approx. 70M Years old All bones have been found in the same micro-site in close proximity but not "associated". It is pretty save to assume that these come from the same animal though. Unfortunately no other bones have been found that would help identifying the genus. The guy who found the fossil thinks it could be Saurornitholestes. My preliminary assessment (please note that I am not an expert at all): - The long bone (top left) is one of the three metatarsals - The weird shaped bone (top right) is a part of the ankle (lower end of the tibia) - The claw (bottom left) is the claw that belongs to digit III or digit IV - The other bones are probably digits From II, III or IV I am looking forward to your feedback. I realize that this is probably extremly difficult to ID the bones correctly. Thank you.
  12. Hi. I found this on the Isle of Wight, UK (Cretaceous.) Is it a Dinosaur bone, a reptile bone or something else? Thanks, Daniel
  13. Hi. I have this Cretaceous dinosaur vertebra from the Isle of Wight, UK. Can anyone identify which part of the spine it came from? Thanks, Daniel
  14. Hi, I've noticed a lot of talk about the different issues with theropod teeth that originate from the Kem Kem beds on this board, and it reminded me that I had a 'Spinosaurus' tooth in my collection. I bought it when I was a kid, and obviously didn't question it's legitimacy or ID in any way. But now that I'm older and have a lot more experience I noticed some features of the tooth that I find slightly dubious. Firstly is the size, it's small, only around 3cm which doesn't compare to some of the enormous teeth in the dentition of Spinosaurus that I've seen. Secondly is the presence of sandy matrix material around the base of the crown which as I've read on here can indicate restoration, and to me looks quite strange. I was wondering if anyone could help confirm if the tooth does appear to be from a Spinosaurid and whether or not it has been restored/composited in anyway. Thanks, Theo
  15. So what's your Favorite dinosaur? Mine is a Utahraptor!
  16. Hi. I have this footprint from Massachusetts. Is it probably from the Portland formation? Thanks, Daniel
  17. As above. After the silly Alioramus(?) locality mistake I made, I have taken on the colossal and necessary task of auditing all my locality info. Here's an area that has me stumped. Does anyone know if there's any late Cretaceous dino-bearing formations in Drumheller besides Horseshoe Canyon?
  18. Just spotted this beauty on a well known auction website. Looks like you could crack it into a pan and have a lovely fried egg sandwich, doesn't it? It had bids, up to a reasonable sum of money (a lot of money, considering that it's just a rock). I messaged the seller to tell him it was just a rock. He replied 'I've had 2 collectors look at it since I listed it, it is a fossilized egg'. Fair enough. I know better than to argue with two collectors. He did, however, close the auction immediately after my email, despite his reply. Part of me hopes a greedy collector nabbed it with a cash offer.
  19. Hello, I was was searching for ceratosaurus teeth for sale when I stumbled upon this tooth. There was no specific ID and I was wondering if TFF could help me ID it properly before I make a move. I was rather intrigued by it. Length: 3mm Time: Late Jurassic Location: Morrison Formation Bone Cabin Quarry Albany County, WY, USA
  20. A few weeks back while digging in Colorado I found an articulated rib in the Brushy Basin Member of the Morrison Formation. (I think it's a rib) It broke a few time while extracting it but I prepped it and kept the fossil pretty raw. Very little restoration, only gap fills to stabalize. The fossil is about 22" long and has a weird attachment at the end, if I didn't extract it like that I wouldn't think they connect. Just looking for what kind of dinosaur it's from, I'm not an expert on ribs. I think it's from a sauropod but not sure.
  21. Wow!
  22. Hi, Other than the dinosaur bone agates I have in my collection, the only two other items I have that are dinosaur are these two teeth. Both are said to be 'meat-eaters' from the Judith River Formation in Montana and the Cretaceous era. I'm still learning so not really sure how to ID them myself, but would really like to know which species these belonged to. The larger one is 1 3/8 inches long, the tiny one is around 1/2 inch. Thanks for reading and for helping in anyway!
  23. This fossil was found in 2016 by a local collector. He told me these were found in the desert outside of the city of Saltillo, in the state of Coahuila. Due to it's osteology, I can infer the dinosaur died at a young age (It was a subadult, but could had been younger). The bone probably pertained to a hadrosaur (Which is the most common dinosaur in the region, around 70% of all dino discoveries!!!).
