  1. Hey y'all just started a job on a ranch and they have a very nice theropod trackway. Has at least 10 tracks maybe more. Some are covered by cast off from a mountain. Im fairly sure they are Jurassic but still need to get better gel maps of the area. Anyway my question is what is the best stuff to make a cast of a couple of them. I know plaster of Paris but as with anything is there some new super bad stuff out there? thanks much
  2. I recently bought a Do It Yourself Psittacosaurus skeleton cast. And I thought it would be fun to share the process of mounting the skeleton. I already had a skeleton cast of a juvenile Psittacosaurus but now I also have an adult version! As it came painted, I could just have mounted it as is. But I wanted to give it a more interesting post rather than a a straight spine and tail. Since the spine and tail come in bundled segments of vertebrae. I thought I would cut them apart so that I could create curves better. And as I was modifying it anyway, I might as well improve it here and there as well. Some parts like the vertebral foramen on the vertebrae and some fenestra are filled in on the original cast. So I decided to dril some holes to make the details a bit more accurate. Size comparison with the adult and juvenile skeleton. The frame I made for the juvenile is pretty basic and primitive so I want to make a better and prettier mount for the big one. Drilling out the vertebral foramen in the middle and separating the vertebrae. Process of drilling holes and opening up the inside of the skull to more accurately reflect actual openings in a real skull. I'm not done smoothing out the new hole syet though. So right now it still looks quite ugly. More to come soon!
  3. Hey all, I am New to the forum, and very happy to be here with all of you. I live close to Philadelphia, but have been traveling to New Jersey to a well known creek that dates back to the Cretaceous period to hunt for fossils. I found this one thing and I have no clue what it is. Perhaps you'd be able to assist? since I can't post too many photos in the same message, I'm going to add a couple more possible fossils that I don't know how to ID. thanks for having me here everybody! brettco
  4. found some intresting things in my yard... ive found a few pieces like this
  5. Just thought I'd share something cool. There's a little rock shop in my city that I like to visit every once in a while. Although most of the fossils they sell are nice little ammonites, orthoceras, shark teeth, etc., they've recently acquired some specimens that blew me away: a couple of solitary raptor eggs, a raptor nest, and a hadrosaur nest! I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw them. I asked one of owners of the shop where the fossils were from and I was told the raptor nest was from Madagascar and the solitary eggs were from South America. I didn't ask about the hadrosaur nest. Questions regarding their authenticity and legal nature immediately flooded my mind as I'm not familiar with the laws of those countries regarding fossils. They also look to me to be incomplete but I'm not sure. Personally, I believe the nests (assuming they're real), should be in a museum or institute where paleontologists have access to study and learn from them, but who could resist the thought of being able to say you own a freakin raptor nest!? Maybe put it on display in your mancave with a plaque that reads: "Dont touch my huevos!" Anyway, let me know your thoughts. Have you ever been in the presence of a fossil that truly astonished you for whatever reason? e.g. your favorite dino, a significant discovery, etc. I'd love to hear your responses.
  6. Well y'all I do believe I found some Dino bone. Sorry it's dirty still but im afraid to handle it much do to the fact I found it near water. It's quit heavy. 50lbs or better. No porous structure visible. Dark black mostly. Well you see the pics. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Great day today considering I found this as well as a nice arrowhead. Well I am getting an error message saying "there is a problem processing the uploaded file -200" anybody have suggestions for a fix? Im dieing to find answers here.
  7. HI, just wondering if this is a dinosaur tooth? We found it on a beach on the South Coast of NSW. To me it looks like a spinosaurous tooth, but my hubby thinks it it can't be.
  8. Hi everyone! Just wanted to share with you all this great Triceratops tooth I recently acquired at a very low price! This is the first dinosaur tooth in my collection, and though it's small, I really like it!
  9. This dinosaur fossil is about the about 12 " long and I am not sure what part it is from. I was wondering if anyone could help me identify it.
  10. I took the teeth and and other dinosaur material i won in Grand Christmas auction plus some teeth I already had and put together this display.
  11. Dinosaur fossils 3 Hello I am putting up some pictures of dinosaur fossils I was told some are from Alberta and some from Montana. If anyone could tell by the colors by where they were probably located that would be appreciated. I have included measurement and a couple of pics of each fossil. I will put a few here and make more posts with other fossils on it.

  13. Hello again after 1 year.And sorry again if my English is bad or not enough. It is finally my last year to graduate and start a job as a archeologist. On my free times, i go to beach and try to find some fossils. However,there is nearly no fossil sites in my country and a place which is poor about fossils. I go to beach every day, but all i found is some worthless sand dollars, I didn't have financial situation to travel abroad either. I would like to buy some for my collection.I will love to hear your suggestions. Also, if you can give me some fossil hunting advices, it will be much appreciated. Thank you,

  18. Hello I put up a picture of a fossil I couldn't identify and it worked out so well that I thought I would put some more pics of other ones I can't identify. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  19. Here is a tooth my colleague found a lot of years near Cognac (Charente, France). It is from a sedimentary facies Purbeckian (Late Jurassic, Lower Cretaceous). The quarry was in the marl, we found many reptiles, teeth and fish scales there, and of very small shark teeth. The size is 4 cm (1" 3/5) Thanks for your help. Coco
  20. Hi! New fossil collector and forum member My friend gave me this tooth which she found in an antique shop in Georgia USA, she said she thought it was a hadrosaur tooth, which it doesn't look anything of the sort to me! Looks more like a carnivore tooth except there are no serrations. I would guess spinosaur tooth but it seems unusually fat and an odd shape in general compared to a lot of the pics I've seen? Perhaps a croc? I don't have the experience to have much confidence in my own assessments so I would appreciate it if somebody would share some wisdom Thank you!!
  21. 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: http://www.discussfossils.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=5455&title=lavernock-point-dinosaur 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

  23. Hello, I bought this dinosaur fossil a while back and have tried to figure out it's id. I was told it is from Alberta and think it's part of leg bone but not sure if it is hadrosaur or theropod? It is pretty large about the size of a football that is why I am thinking it is part of a leg bone. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  24. Arm or leg bone of a small theropod dinosaur.
  25. I recently bought this fossil which is a dinosaur eggshell that came from China. It is late cretaceous in age. You can even see red coloration which is the remaining sediment from where it was collected from. I want to know which dinosaur layed it. I think the fossil is Elongatoolithudae which is the type of egg that Oviraptorids layed. Front The back which is very smooth
