  1. Hello, I have had a long interest in fossils and have acquired a small but very nice quality (at least in my opinion) collection over the years. I've recently become interested in dinosaur tracks/footprints and would like to add one to my collection. The thing is, I can't seem to find any anywhere that don't have staining/coloring applied to them. I understand that this makes them "easier to see" but to me it's kind of strange and detracts from the fossil. If the imprint can't be seen on its own, I don't really want it... The painting just looks a bit silly to me. I've only come across one so far that doesn't have staining on it, and it's this one here (I've included a picture below - the track itself is apparently a bit over 6 inches). But I don't know what to think about this one since the matrix seems cracked and repaired very heavily and the price is still seemingly very expensive (at least to me). I would be very interested to know anyone's thoughts on how you approach dinosaur tracks. And if you have thoughts on this specific example, I'd certainly be open to hearing that too. Thanks a lot!!
  2. Bone ID - very specific shape

    Another find in Glendive, MT. This piece was found along with other shattered pieces of bone and we jacketed them together. I am slowly working to reconstruct, and this is the biggest whole piece I have. The shape is so specific, I am curious as to if anyone knows at least where in the body this bone was (arm, leg rib, ect) I'd appreciate it! And if you know even more, all the better! Thanks for looking
  3. Skull, Teeth, Jawbone, etc.

    Hello everyone and thanks in advance for any help or ideas. Earlier this summer my friend moved to South Dakota and purchased a home. A few days ago he was cleaning out a shed on the property and found a cardboard box filled with the fossils seen below. It is unknown if the prior owner had found these on the property or if they had been purchased elsewhere. So unfortunately he has no idea where or when these were originally found. Neither of us have much experience in this but obviously fossils such as these catch your attention! If anyone wants or needs additional pictures let me know and I will see if he can send more. I have included mostly pictures of the skull and teeth as I figured they would likely be most helpful for identification. It is assumed all these pieces belong together but it is possible it is just a random collection. The pictures in order are: skull facing front, skull bottom, skull side (close up), three different angles of the jaw/teeth, and then one pic of all the pieces together with a ruler to get a ballpark idea of sizing. Hope you guys enjoy the pics and hopefully someone out there has some guesses. Thanks!
  4. Hadrosaur Humerus Repair/Prep

    I recently got this lovely mess of bone, which is a mostly complete hadrosaur right humerus that only requires some assembling. I actually bought this with the idea that it might be a fun project. But then it broke even more in the shipping. So I have my work cut out for me. It's from Judith River formation, Montana. It's hard to tell at the moment, but it seems to be a rather slender humerus. So that would make it more likely to be from the saurolophinae subfamily. But I will look into that some more when I have it assembled. So I will be doing lots of reassembling on this piece as well as prepping away some excess matrix that's still present. Besides the obvious problems, the bone itself is actually in very nice condition with some really smooth cortical bone as well as some lovely visible muscle scars. This is how it looked when I first opened it. Quite a mess. Also a drawing of what it should look like in context. And here I have slightly ordered the pieces. There's 5 big main pieces, three medium pieces and a whole bunch of tiny chunks. One of the bigger pieces that includes the ulnar and radial condyles. The shaft of the bone has had a pretty bad recent fracture. This is also where most of the smaller pieces come from.
  5. Dinosaur or Mammal bone ID help

    I found this on the bank of the Red Deer River in Alberta Canada. I have no idea what it's from. I have never found a fossilized bone before. Does anyone have any ideas? Not sure if it could be from a Dinosaur or a mammal like a young mammoth or something. I would love to get some ideas on this one. I am willing to answer any questions or take new photos if needed.
  6. Hi All, I realize that the topic is not pleasant but "safety first" especially if you want to pass your passion to the next generation, right? We bought a Geiger counter and went over our fossil collection (see video below for the results). I wonder if that is a standard practice among collectors or not so much. I recently read a topic on this forum about somebody finding a pile of bones at Calvert cliffs. Could it be the case? I know I buried my dinobone slab after measuring it. I'm not saying anyone should get rid of the bones in their collection but being aware of the radioactivity levels would not hurt. Anyone care to share their experience in this area? Thanks!
  7. Can anyone ID this?

    Hi everyone. I found this on the Red Deer River in Alberta Canada. I was wondering if anyone could ID what animal this fossil came from? I cant get all images in one post in will post the other photos in the comments.
  8. Bissekty toe bones

    Hi I know that there are almost no publications about the dinosaurs from the Bissekty formation. However, I was wondering if it is still possible to narrow down these two bones? I am specificatlly interested in the left one. Could it be a Tyrannosaur or Therizinosaur phalanx?
  9. Can anyone tell me what this tooth came from? they say it’s a type of dromeosaur/raptor but it doesn’t look like a raptor to me it’s 100 million years old and is 2.8 cm long but it doesn’t say where it came from.
  10. Bones in coprolite

    This is from zephyrosaurus. Here is a photo of it. Thoughts ?
  11. Hi I was wondering if any body has some theropod fossils they would like to trade ( majungasaurus, allosaurus, T. Rex ex: ) I have a lot of fossils I am willing to trade I will send you some photos later on thanks.

  13. Dinosaur footprints

    This is the biggest specimen in my collection a prosaurapod footprint from wasson bluff I was wondering if anyone has dinosaur footprints that they would like to share? it’s not the best photo beacause of the lighting
  14. Hi, I found a small fragment of what I think may be dinosaur bone on the Isle of Wight. It was on Gurnard beach on the north of the island. The island is famous for dinosaur fossils, with 20 different species being found on the south beaches. The fragment is roughly 20mm square. One side is half-covered in what looks like reptile skin and the other side has lots of streaks across it. Hopefully photos will help. Thanks.
  15. Abelisauridae - Raptor

    Hello, I see a lot of websites that sell abelisauridae teeth and raptor teeth, to me look the same size and shape, how can you tell the difference? (raptor tooth white backround), (abelisauridae tooth yellow backround)
  16. Hello everyone! I’m Aaron and I’m new here. I just purchased an egg online. I then started reading about how many fakes there are and now I’m very worried. Can anyone give me the skinny on whether it’s real or not? It’s coming from Malaysia and claims to have been part of a private Japanese collection prior to the 80s. I appreciate all your input, thanks!
  17. Did I find a Dino tooth

    Went hunting in the Antlers formation (same age as Cloverly Formation) i found this when looking. It stuck out as it was a different color then nearly every other rock I saw and it resembles some other worn hadrosaur teeth I’ve seen. Known Hadrosaur from the formation is Tenontosaurus. Thanks for the help everyone
  18. Fossilized Egg?

    I found this sometime in the 1970’s State: New York, County: Suffolk, Township: Brookhaven, Hamlet: Rocky Point on Broadway Beach on the shore of Long Island Sound. The fossil weighs about one ounce. The hole was there when found, through it there is hollow space, but I can also see that there is some structure or substance inside.
  19. Dino egg?

    Going thru my box of geodes and found what possibly could be Dino egg...need help to identify this fossil...found this in northern Iowa in my husband’s grandmother’s rocks outside in her flower bed...may not originally be from Iowa. Approximate Measurements: 5” long. 10.1cm wide 4” wide. 7.6cm wide
  20. New addition to my collection an Ankylosarus and Pachycephalosaur theeth.
  21. Mosasaur or dinosaur vert?

    Hello! I'm leaning towards Mosasaur on this but that's mostly based on the fact that Mosasaur vertabra are a lot more common here than dinosaur. I found it in a Monmouth County, NJ Cretaceous deposit. The reason I'm posting this here is because the structure looked a little different than my other Mosasaur verts and upon further review, I noticed it had those bumpy patterns in the concave end that I don't see on my other Mosasaur verts. It's also pretty heavy but appears to be highly mineralized so that might or might not be a factor. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
  22. A good read even for those who already are up to speed. https://www.theguardian.com/science/2019/jul/17/montana-fossilized-dueling-dinosaurs-skeletons-dino-cowboy

  24. Hello all this is my first post. I recently came into possession of what I believe to be a Allosaurus rib fossil. Unfortunately the specimen snapped in a few places during transit. This dose however give me the opportunity to post pictures of the broken sections. Not exactly what I was expecting to see, but then again this is my first large fossil so I don't really know what I was expecting to see. some information I was provided from the previous owner: '"last 6 inches of the distal end, is restorated. The rest of the rib was found largely intact. Found on private land in the Morrison Formation" Any information that can be provided to me would be a great help. Debbie
  25. I recently went to the New Mexico Natural History Museum in Alberquerque, I got some really good pictures.
