  1. So not too long ago, I acquired a Protoceratops tooth from a German fossil gallery. And I have been looking for more fossils of the species for comparison both in price-range and rarity, but cannot seem to find any other protoceratops fossils anywhere. Does anyone know if these teeth are ever sold online? And have I perhaps made a heck of a buy? I'm not sure if the fossils from the Gobi Desert are rare or just hard to come by, unless you live in Asia. Any information would be appreciated, thanks! (Will put up some pictures of the tooth when I get home later)
  2. Dinosaur Claw Nemegt Formation

    I need help identifying this dinosaur claw from the Nemegt Formation. It's about 1.25" long. My though is ornithomimid, but I'm not sure.
  3. Mystery Tooth

    Hello! I recently bought a moroccan Carcharodontosaurus tooth and found, to my surprise, this little guy wedged underneath the foam in the box. It's hollow and looks a bit like a croc tooth but I'm not sure. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance!
  4. I found a couple pieces of what I think to be Dinosaur Bones and possibly a scute from my Uncle's property a while back in Canon City, CO. Canon City is known for Late Jurassic dinosaurs. I'm definitely not an expert, but it looks like I possibly found an Ankylosaurus scute? Can someone tell me anything about these bones? One of the bones even looks like it has bite marks or claw marks. Not sure....I could be wrong. Any info would help, thanks!
  5. I did some macro photography of one of my Kem Kem teeth (one of those smaller, unidentified dinosaurs), just for kicks. This tooth is under 1cm long. However, I noticed this strange, cross-hatched pattern in beneath the serrations - is this a normal thing? How does it come about? Possibly some sort of cleaning marks? I am curious to know!
  6. Hello my name is Tijn. I love Dinosaurs and am already building a decent collection. I already have most species from the Hell Creek Formation, Lance Formation and Judith River Formation. I am mainly interested in species from the Jurassic, triassic or early cretaceous. I've got a couple Dinosaur fossils and shark teeth im willing to trade. I am not looking for anything big but small partial Bones and teeth are fine! Who can help me out? P.S. ill make some pictures of the material i am willing to trade later. Thanks in advance Tijn
  7. Updated T.rex

    Cool article from Business Insider on the most accurate T.rex so far to date. This new exhibit is featured at the American Museum of Natural History, NYC also featuring the Tyrannosaur lineage. Really dig the new look! https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.businessinsider.com/what-paleontologists-got-wrong-about-tyrannosaurus-rex-2019-3

  10. This is said to be a dinosaur footprint from Ganzhou, China. It measures 50cm in length. It is convex (rather than being a concave depression). Do you think it is really a footprint?

  13. Dinosaur skin?

    This specimen was said to be a dinosaur skin fossil. There is no information on the locality. What do you think?
  14. Isle of Wight dinosaur bone ID

    Hi, I just saw this vertebra online and decided to buy it, as I have wanted an Isle of Wight fossil for a very long time now. The vertebra was listed as an Iguanodon tail vertebra and it was found in The Wealden Clays, Wessex Formation, The Wealden Group, Chilton Chine, Isle of Wight, UK (130 million years old, Cretaceous) Overall Size = 5.1 cm (2 inches) long by 5.1 cm (2 inches) wide by 8.2 cm (3.25 inches) high. I know there are a few very knowledgeable people on this forum when it comes to ID'ing dinosaur bones, so my question is: is the ID correct on this bone? Is it truly Iguanodontid (Mantellisaurus or Iguanodon) or is it from another of the many dinosaurs that can be found on the Isle of Wight? Or should I just label it as Dinosaur vertebra? Thank you in advance!
  15. Hello everyone, I've started organizing my small rock and fossil collection and setting up a display on my desk. I thought I'd put up some pictures of my collection. Thanks for taking a look! If anyone would like to see close up pictures of anything please let me know!
  16. Hadrosaur Tooth

    From the album Judith River fm. Fossil Finds

    This tooth comes from a hadrosaur of some variety (difficult to assert a genus over one tooth) and is the biggest herbivorous dinosaur tooth in my collection and among my best fossils altogether. It was found by my dad in northern Montana in 2017. It measures over an inch and half in length. If you have any ideas as to what kind of hadrosaur this tooth belongs to feel free to let me know your thoughts.
  17. Favourite websites?

    Please could everyone name their favourite websites for dinosaur fossils?
  18. Joining two pieces of bones

    Hi. Ive two pieces of dinosaur limb bone that I want to join together. The pieces are pretty heavy and about 4 inches in diameter. What’s the best way to do it? Ive been toying with drilling the bone and inserting a metal rod or just glueing but I don’t know which type of glue to use. I normally use superglue or paraloid for small pieces but this is a lot bigger than anything I’ve tried to join. thanks Nick
  19. My interview for I Know Dino

    I was interviewed about my egg research by Garret and Sabrina who have a Dinosaur focused podcast, strangely enough, called "I Know Dino" and wanted to share. Highly recommend their podcast as they provide a nice weekly recap on Dinosaurs, such as scientific news and less serious funny moments. One major point where I Know Dino stands out compared to most media is a focus on accurately reporting current research. Garret and Sabrina strive to engage with the scientific community, for example, they actually attend SVP. They have interviewed many great paleontologists including Jack Horner, Tom Holtz, Phil Currie, John Scannella, Dave Varricchio, Danny Barta, Cary Woodruff, Ashley Hall, Lee Hall, plus more recently Liz Freedman Fowler and Denver Fowler. Around 55 paleontologists in total to date along with interviews of others who have active dinosaur related projects like making cast of bones or shows for the public. My interview mainly went over dinosaur eggs and the validity of Troodon. Link to the I Know Dino website: https://iknowdino.com/ Link to the episode with my interview: https://iknowdino.com/dromiceiomimus-episode-221/ Link straight to my interview: In a way, I suppose this can count as my fossil Friday post haha. Going to get those who might be interested in actually hearing me or have posted before about eggs, sorry for any spam. @Troodon. @Seguidora-de-Isis . @HamptonsDoc . @-Andy- . @MarcoX. @Crazyhen . @Masp . @abyssunder . @WhodamanHD . @Haravex . @TyBoy . @Tidgy's Dad . @aeon.rocks . @DPS Ammonite . @steelhead9 . @Pemphix . @Still_human . @Pixpaleosky . @bcfossilcollector . @RamenHero . @The Amateur Paleontologist Eric P.
  20. Dinosaur/reptile neural spine

    I recently saw this dinosaur/reptile neural spine for sale. It is almost 5cm. Does anyone know if this could be a piece of a spinosaurus neural spine and if not then what it could be?
  21. Fun with 3D Printing Fossils

    So recently my father bought a 3D printer and we've been experimenting printing some cool fossils for a while now. It's a really cool technology. Though it can take a while to print a piece the results are really quite cool. A life size Archaeopteryx can take a few days to print if you don't keep printing during the night. Finishing up the prints afterwards can also take a bit of time. Cleaning off all the supports and sanding down rough surfaces can be quite the process. Then there's painting depending on the desired result of course. There are actually a lot of nice things that can be found for download on the internet. Though many of these models still require a bit of digital cleanup before they could be printed. So here are a number of the painted, unpainted and half painted results. Most of the printed stuff is dinosaur. Photo of the 3D printer and the just finished print of a juvenile Edmontosaurus lower jaw. And here's the same Edmontosaurus jaw print half painted again with the real fossil in mirror image next to it. I scanned the original bone that I then mirrored digitaly so that I could print out the other side of the jaw. Allosaurus hand claw. Clidastes Mosasaur quadrate bone. Skull of the "Prosauropod" Massospondylus. Holotype right lower jaw of Owenodon, an Iguanodontid. 1/5th scale Nanotyrannus skull. The Cleveland specimen. One of my favourites. The Eichstatt Archaeopteryx specimen. The right side skeleton of the baby Parasaurolophus "Joe". Printed at 1/5th scale. Right humerus and pedal phalanges printed at life size. Most of the fossil prints are for my collection. But my dad also wanted a few cool things which I painted for him. Skulls of Dodo and Australopithecus Taung Child. Most are painted roughly to look like their real counter parts.
  22. A cute T-rex cousin from Utah

    https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2019/02/moros-fills-tyrannosaur-origin-story/583264/ https://www.newsweek.com/new-dinosaur-utah-moros-intrepidus-tyrannosaurus-rex-1338776?piano_t=1
  23. I was hoping somebody on TFF might be able to point me in the direction of any scientific papers, research or information that members here might have put together regarding dromaeosaurid theropods from the Judith River formation. This is not really about identifying any teeth, though I do have one from that formation. I am starting to do my research for the education program and am looking for scientific information. From what I can gather, there is a possible Saurornitholestes species and of course the dinosaur I have seen referred to as Julieraptor, which is a interesting story all on its own. I have also seen Dromaeosaurus listed from that formation. I would like to sort out what is known and unknown from the formation and the best way to present our "raptor" tooth to the kids. Any help links or suggestions as to where I might find more information on this would be much appreciated
  24. Additional sauropod dinosaur material from the Callovian Oxford Clay Formation, Peterborough, UK: evidence for higher sauropod diversity. Who would have believed it, Dinosaur remains from Peterborough UK ! Four isolated sauropod axial elements from the Oxford Clay Formation (Callovian, Middle Jurassic) of Peterborough, UK. “But wait, how can that be” is the response I usually receive “how is that even possible for sauropod and marine reptiles to coincide from the same Oxford Clay Formation deposits of Peterborough” Well, the time and effort that Femke M. Holwerda, Mark Evans and Jeff J. Liston have put into explaining such finds in this write up makes for a much-needed thought provoking read indeed. The full PeerJ article PDF version is at the link below. https://peerj.com/articles/6404/ “Femke, Mark and Jeff thank you for the acknowledgement I really appreciate that”
  25. A claw from Hell Creek

    I bought this claw a little while ago, for close to nothing. Still waiting for the item to arrive. Not sure what it is from though. It was dug up in Hell Creek. The claw and bone measure about an inch in length in total. Anyone who would have a qualified guess?
