  1. Dr. Junchang Lü (1965 - October 8, 2018)

    Dr. Junchang Lü (1965 - October 8, 2018) Some very sad news for today. It's with a heavy heart that I note the passing of Dr. Junchang Lü (Institute of Geology, Chinese Academy of Geological Sciences, Beijing 100037, People's Republic of China) at the age of 53. For more information, go see: Death of a Fossil Hunter. Junchang Lü was is one of the most important dinosaur researchers of the past half century By Richard Conniff, National Geographic, October 17, 2018 https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/death-of-a-fossil-hunter/ 53岁恐龙专家、中国地质科学院地质研究所研究员吕君昌逝世 https://www.thepaper.cn/newsDetail_forward_2517034 Condolences, Paul H.
  2. Paleochris68's collection

    Hello ! I present you my very small collection. I started it last summer, so I do not have many pieces yet, but I prefer pretty pieces. I do not have the chance to search on the field, so I buy my fossils. We have: Keichousaurus Hui, I really like his broken tail Russian trilobite, Asaphus punctatus (I have not been able to label it yet). Restoration verified with violet lamp, less than 10% Spinosaurus tooth, correct quality, only glued but with pieces of the same tooth Last Acquisition: caudal vertebra spinosaurus I am going to buy other teeth of theropauds (carcharodontosaurs) in the next few months and I am mainly interested in dinosaurs fossils. The choice is unfortunately limited for the cheap parts (less than 1000 dollars) See you soon !
  3. Hey guys, I´m from Germany and have bought this little tooth from the Hell Creek Formation in Montana. The seller described the tooth as "Dromaeosaur tooth", which belongs possible to Dakotaraptor or Acherorator. I´m not sure about the identification of this tooth and hope, that you can help me. The tooth is 1,27cm (= 1/2") in lenght. Thank you in advance and kind regards!
  4. Thescelosaurus premax?

    Hi all! I feel like it's been too long since I last posted something of my own rather than commenting. Below is a picture of a tiny tooth which I initially believed to be crocodilian. I found it when surveying a promising anthill at a microsite in the Lance formation of eastern Wyoming. I was not disappointed! I ended up finding some very nice and very tiny fossils; a vertebra and a tooth both potentially myledaphus, a crocodile tooth (borealosuchus or other) and Richardoestesia tooth with almost invisible serrations! Nearby I found two tiny edmontosaurus teeth and a few partial croc scutes. I affectionately refer to this site by several names; 'The Whale Rocks" (as the harder gray capstones appear reminiscent of our cetacean friends), the sand box (due to the 'floor' of the surrounding area being covered in sand) or the 'Micro-Micro Site' as everything i've ever found there has been shrunken in size from your typical channel deposit. I want to know what you think of this piece which I now believe is one of the premaxillary teeth of the small herbivorous dinosaur Thescelosaurus and I other forum members agree with my analysis. (The tooth itself is only about 4 mm)
  5. Hey guys, Hello I am from Germany. That's why I apologize for my bad English. This tooth (top right in the picture) I have recently screaked from the US. The tooth comes from the Hell Creek Formation (Wyoming). It was sold as a "Raptor" tooth. He is about 7mm (0,28") long. I´m not sure, to which dinosaur the tooth belongs, thats why I asked my question in this forum. I hope, that you can help me! Thank you in advance and kind regards!
  6. Some Dinosaurs Had Colored and Speckled Eggs

  7. I need some advice for consolidating these 3 fossils. #1 The Enchodus fang/jaw itself is fine, however the sandy matrix Is the issue, especially because it’s messy for display because tiny grains keep falling off, etc. What would you reccomend for consolidating that?
  8. Does any one know how to prep dino eggs? I feel I could make this look better. I was thinking vinegar or a soda blast?
  9. Made an incredible discovery at home tonight when I noticed tiny baby dinosaur tracks about only 5.1mm long on a ripple slab I had found. I've never seen baby footprints so small before, so I'm amazed. No wonder I didn't notice them for nearly two weeks after I had found them this month! Since there seems to be a partial adult on the edge it makes me wonder if this dinosaur was walking with its new born baby.
  10. KT boundary micro glass

    From the album Invertebrates and plants(& misc.)

    Debris, including micro glass "beads" from melted earth ejected into the air, from the KT boundary burn layer. Garfield county, Montana, Hell Creek formation. Late cretaceous (duh) *i added "misc." to this album because this didn't fit anywhere, and I thought it was really cool and should definitely be included somewhere. **There could even be vaporized dinosaur material as part of the glass and melted debris included. There definitely was plenty of it, but I guess realistically, unless it became evenly spread into the atmosphere and airborne debris, this is too small an amount of ejecta, and by percentage such a minuscule amount of vaporized dino, so sadly there probably isn't any.
  11. Book I’m currently reading (just started it). Dinosaurs: The most complete, up to date encyclopedia for dinosaur lovers of all ages, by Dr. Thomas R. Holtz. I am enjoying this book so much because it’s easy to follow, it’s organized, and it breaks down the different types of dinosaurs. Very educational. Check out the beautiful illustrations.
  12. Hello everyone, had a super quick trip to the cretaceous creeks of new jersey and found this particularly interesting large bone fragment, likely it is a chunk of miscellaneous bone material but it reminds me alot of a scute like ankylosaurus or some sort of other bone scute especially the edge, or from maybe something like a large turtle but I am entirely not sure if it's dinosaur, marine reptile, etc or if there is anyway to tell, looks super suspicious to me anyways so if anyone has any ideas I'd definitely love to hear them. (If more pictures are needed I will definitely be able to get some more angles if necessary)
  13. Buying Polar Dinosaurs?

    Hello. This is most likely a stupid question, but I was wondering if it is possible to purchase polar dinosaur fossils. If so, where could I purchase some? Polar as from Alaska, Canada or Australia (near where the north and south poles were located during the Mesozoic). I’ve always had an interest in polar dinosaurs.
  14. Hello, I have been recently shopping around for fossil books that are more image heavy to look around at on my downtime, the few I have so far seem to be generally focused on all fossils and contain hardly any fossil vertebrates from the mesozoic or tertiary periods. Thus I am on the look out for any books that would be good fits, there was one I cannot remember the name for the life of me that I think is a large recent book that I've seen in B&N that goes over all time periods in full color with fossil photos/creature images, if anyone knows maybe which one that could be I was definitely on the lookout for it but any recommendations are awesome.
  15. Feud About the Extinction of Dinosaurs

    The Nastiest Feud in Science A Princeton geologist has endured decades of ridicule for arguing that the fifth extinction was caused not by an asteroid but by a series of colossal volcanic eruptions. But sheʼs reopened that debate.

  16. G'day everyone! This weekend I was able to go down to Melbourne Museum with my family to check out the new Mesozoic marine reptile fossils. There we checked out the paleontology exhibits (The Dinosaur Walk and 600 Million years of Victoria) The Dinosaur Walk displayed many dinosaur skeletons from around the world as well as Australian Mega-fauna. The 600 Million years of Victoria was about the evolution of life in Victoria with fossils from the Cambrian all the way to the Pleistocene displayed. This was my favorite exhibit because of its large collection of Victorian polar dinosaur fossils. Here are some photos of the trip: Thanks, Daniel Gallimimus - Mongolia Mamenchisaurus- China Deinonychus - USA Protoceratops - Mongolia Tarbosaurus - Mongolia Megalania - Lake Callabonna, South Australia Inostrancevia alexandri - Russia 600 Million Years of Victoria Whale skull (Janjucetus hunderi) Ogliocene, Jan Juc, Victoria Shark teeth from all over Victoria (Aged Oligocene to Miocene) Echinoderm and coral fossils from across Australia Seed pod fossils from Victoria Fossil fish from Koonwarra, Victoria Ammonite fossils from Australia & overseas
  17. Whats are the dinosaurs fossils found in Dockum Formation ?
  18. Fossil Forum Family, Soon I’ll be making a trip over to southern Italy (in the Apulia and then Sicily Catania area) . Don’t know what my trip will consist of because I’m always all over the place when I’m there...but in the event I have some time to kill, does anybody have any suggestions for any cool dino activities, like must see footprints, fossils, museums, etc? I was thinking of making a trip to Altamura, where I hear that there are many dinosaur tracks to see. I may also make a trip over to Naples. I hear it has a cool dino museum there. Lastly, anyone know of any cool areas for fossil hunting/collecting ? (Namely Mesozoic fossils) Thanks everyone

  20. In St George Utah a massive dinosaur track was discovered (and actually is probably all over the entire city). But the focus today is not on the spectacular tracks but the teeth. They had a few on display but I was told they found a lot, enough for a cabinet full. This is Early Jurassic. Here are a few example of a dilophosaurid type dinosaur Here is an example of smaller theropod.

  22. Spinosaurus: quadrupedal or bipedal?

    Can anyone give me an answer?
  23. This is now my third post on my finds from last years trip to Wyoming. If you want to check out my previous posts click on these links - Theropod claw and Microsite Fossil ID. (* = two specimens of similar size) 1. Brachychampsa montana tooth (1 cm). 2. Thescelosaurus neglectus vertebra (2.5 cm). 3. Lonchidion selachos (?) Hybodont spine (3.5 cm).
  24. I wanted to share some of my projects with all of you. A hobby and side business of mine is creating dinosaur sculptures. I do all different kinds of things aside from dinos too, but to keep it relevant, we’ll stick to the mesozoic Featured in my profile picture is my raptor created from scrap metal used to construct railings. I named him Bambi (ironically not a Bambiraptor). Probably more like Deinonychus, he’s a pretty big chicken, but you let me know what you think. As of now he’s my favorite creation, hence why he’s featured in my profile pic. Still trying to figure out the paint job. I wish he’d stop scaring all the birds and deer away...
  25. I created this topic for anyone who wants an opinion from others on a potential purchase. Not regarding if the price right, because that’s totally up to you...I’m more concerned about quality, rarity, etc. Post here if you’re on the fence about anything. To kick it off, I’m gonna share what I came across....I’m not sure on the availability on such things like dino eggs meaning, “do I wait or purchase?” I know there are fakes, and I know the quality comes in all ranges...the detail in this particular shell is interesting.... question is, would you hold off and wait for something better, or would you purchase this bit of shell? Not crazy expensive anyway. A magnified Titanosaur argentinosaurus eggshell x4. I sent the seller more specific questions.
