  1. I have been looking for an Atrociraptor marshalli tooth for quite awhile. I happened to find someone who had one and he was nice enough to sell it to me, along with a French dromaeosaurid tooth. I got them both in the mail today. Thank you to the seller, who’s a TFF member! Atrociraptor marshalli Drumheller, Alberta Canada Red Deer River badlands Horseshoe Canyon Fm 7/16” Dromaeosauridae sp. indet. Department Charante, France Cherves-de-Cognac Near Chamblanc quarry Berriasian Age 6mm The French tooth’s serrations are so unique. Almost tear-drop shaped toward the tip
  2. Seller listed this as a “raptor toe bone” and it looks like it to me as well. Found in Montana’s HCF. What do you guys think?
  3. 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!
  4. Nanotyrannus or Dakotaraptor?

    Hi all, I am new to the forum and new to collecting =) I recently obtained this nice tooth labeled as Dromaeosaur sp. premax. tooth - I would like to get a more refined ID if possible. It was found in the Hell Creek Fm., Powder River Co., Montana and measures 15/16". Denticle count per 5mm is distal 18, mesial 24 (not many denticles visible mesial though). I found a thread here stating it is possible to distinguish Nanotyrannus from Dakotaraptor teeth by the shape of the denticles - however I find this very hard as rookie. Any help is appreciated!
  5. Dakotaraptor tooth?

    I came across this tooth and was wondering if the ID is correct as I haven't had much first hand experience with raptor teeth so far, especially Hell Creek raptors. It's being advertised as a Dakotaraptor steini tooth from the Hell Creek formation. In the description it says it has very fine serrations though I find them hard to spot in the photos as they are a little on the small side. It's pretty small. So could it be Acheroraptor instead?
  6. New Cloverly teeth

    I just got these two beautiful Deinonychus Antirrhopus teeth a few days ago. Both are from Carbon County, Montana’s Cloverly formation. 1/2” front maxillary 5/16”
  7. Fast. Intelligent. Deadly. The "Raptor" is perhaps one of the most famous dinosaur today thanks to Jurassic Park. To many people's surprise however, raptors are heavily feathered and nimbler than movies would have you believe. The Jurassic Park Velociraptor was merely the size of coyote in real life! In fact, their proper family name is 'Dromaeosaurid'. The largest species was Utahraptor, and it grew to the size of a grizzly bear! Dromaeosaurid fossils have been found all over the world. They first appeared during the Cretaceous, though isolated teeth have been found in the mid-Jurassic. Allow me to present my humble collection of Dromaeosaurid teeth. First up, from Cloverly Formation, one of my pride and joy from @hxmendoza A dromaeosaurid from Aguja Formation. I am seeing more Aguja fossils showing up, but dromaeosaurid teeth are still rare. Now, for the dromaeosaurids from the famous Hell Creek Formation. Some of them probably lived alongside T. rex. A big shout-out for @Troodon for getting me started on dromaeosaurids with this very first Acheroraptor!
  8. This is a great fossil forum. A wealth of information. Lots to educate the passionate collector. I want to share a few more of my latest finds with members of this fossil forum. I hope you all enjoy the pics. These are some of my best discoveries made in my Hastings Wealden bonebed collection this past week. First off is this lovely Dromaeosaurid tooth. It took me a few hours, but I managed to prep out both sides. My best find in a while.
  9. Is this a Moroccan raptor tooth?

    I just acquired what I believe to be a dromaeosaurid indet. sp. from the Kem Kem Beds. The tooth measures 19.5 mm long. Serration count on the mid for distal is 14/5mm, and mesial is 20/5mm This tooth is blade-like, and resembles my other raptor teeth. However, Moroccan teeth are often misidentified, so I would like your input.
  10. Possible raptor tooth?

    So.......I've recently gotten into fossil collecting. It's very addicting, I'll admit. Anyway, I recently bought a neat little Kem Kem tooth that was supposedly listed as a "dromaeosaur" or "raptor" tooth. It wasn't too expensive, and of a decent size and quality, so if by chance it wasn't some sort of raptor tooth, I wasn't going to cry about wasting money. I have no idea why, since ignorance is bliss, but I had a sudden urge to look up identifying raptor teeth and stumbled across this impressive site (thank you for existing!!!!). I am now quite certain that my Kem Kem "dromaeosaur" tooth is most likely from some abelisaurid species, which I'm totally fine with since I was planning on buying one anyway. I'll post pictures of it later, since I already own it and can (hopefully) have it identified to the most likely species at my leisure. However, I stumbled across this tooth on my search for elusive raptor teeth. The seller has surprisingly (and respectably) titled it as an unclassified tooth from the Kem Kem area. To my amateur eyes, it looks like it might possibly belong to a raptor? It is supposedly 0.6 inch long. These are the only pictures the seller has provided so far, hopefully they will work. It looks like the mesial serrations (hopefully I'm using that right! New words, yay!) look like they curve slightly to the lingual surface at the base, at least to me.... I roughly sized up a picture of a ruler with millimeters to the pictures of the tooth. There are roughly 4 serrations per millimeter on the mesial side, and 3 per millimeter on the distal. What do you think? Lingual surface is the first picture, labial is the second.
  11. This is my first time posting on this site. I have the opportunity to purchase a potential Dromaeosaur type dinosaur fossil from the Yixian Formation of China. I know there are laws about exporting these types of fossils but the dealer assures me it has been in his possession for a long time. Also, I am willing to take the risk to own an incredible piece of history like this. However, I am not sure if the fossil is real. Based on what I have seen and read the fossil looks like the real deal but would like some other people's advice about it. It is described as a Dromaeosaur type dinosaur which is what the skeleton looks like but would like anyone else's opinion on whether it is authentic or not. Thanks for you help! -Ryan
  12. Raptor vertebra?

    I just recently bought this on a certain auction site (that I've been spending too much time on lately). The seller said it is most likely a raptor caudal vertebra. It was a surface find from the Judith River Formation about 30 miles north of Glasgow, Montana. Is the seller's ID accurate?
  13. Kem Kem Raptor Humerus

    I bought a number of cool little Kem Kem fossils recently. There's a number of quite interesing ones in there. One of them turned out to be pretty special. As far as I know Dromaeosaurid material is pretty rare in the Kem Kem beds. But this seems to be the upper part of a right humerus of a raptor. Other Theropods are generally pretty different and those of birds while more similar also don't match. the bone is obviously hollow but the bone wall is still fairly substantial, which makes me think its Dromaeosaur instead of bird. The bone is also almost identical in shape and size to the humerus of the small Dromaeosaurid Bambiraptor. Though mine is obviously not as complete, but still very nicely preserved in 3D. I feel confident enough to call this raptor that I wanted to share this with you guys. Bambiraptor humerus. Needless to say, I'm really happy with this piece.
  14. Richardoestesia isosceles?

    Is this a tooth of Richardoestesia isosceles? Scale marks on left side of tooth are in mm and on the right side are in 0.5 mm increments. Serration count ranges from about 6 to 8 per mm. What remains of the tooth is approximately 11 mm in length. Hell Creek Formation (Late Cretaceous: Maastrichtian), South Dakota.
  15. It's been awhile since I posted so I thought I would share a few recent buys. These two claws are definitely some of my grail fossils. Enjoy!! Allosaurus hand claw, digit 2:
  16. Finally got a nice raptor tooth

    So since I started collecting fossils, I've been trying to get a nice complete raptor tooth. I bought my first dinosaur teeth (Moroccan theropod tooth and 2 partial raptor from Hell Creek) back in May 2015. Last week, I finally found and bought a beautiful little raptor tooth from Hell Creek Here it is

  18. Hey guys, I came across this Hell Creek claw for sale and I really want it if it is in fact from a dromaeosaur. The seller labeled it as a velociraptor claw, which of course I know it isn't. Velociraptors are from Mongolia, are very rare, and are illegal to export. Anyways, it is from Hell Creek. Do you claw experts think it is a theropod dino claw, even further, a raptor claw? I will add more pictures when the seller sends me more. Help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  19. Dinosaur Caudal Vertebra

    From the album Reptile Fossils

    A caudal vertebra of a small dinosaur. Probably Theropod. Location: Kem Kem beds, Morocco Age: Cenomanian, Upper Cretaceous

  20. Does anyone know where to buy a raptor killing claw and how much they cost? I've tried searching it it on google and ebay, but the only thing that comes up is replicas
  21. Moroccan Raptor Tooth

    Hi, I have this "Raptor" tooth from Morocco and it says its Deltadromeus, but I know it's not that because no skeletal material has yet been found. And I'm just wondering if it is from some kind of raptor. I know that there hasn't been any raptor skeletal material found in Morocco, just teeth. Based on the pictures, does the tooth look Dromaeosaurid? Is it still from a raptor? I can post more pictures if needed. Thanks
  22. I recently acquired some Hell Creek Dromaeosaur teeth specimens and examined them just to study their features and get to know them more. Most of the teeth have the rather re-curved and compressed bladed shape with different size of serrations on the interior and anterior serrations until I ran into a few teeth that seem to have a fatter and more conical, with serration on only on the interior side but seem to have no serration on the anterior side. Upon closer examination with the loupe, It doesn't look like it's worn out or anything, just doesn't seem to be there. Here is the Dromaeosaur tooth I am talking about: I have read from somewhere I can't remember now that some Tyrannosaur teeth in certain mouth positions may not have serration such as the triangular-shaped teeth that are often marked as Aublysodon. Plus, when I compared the strange dromaeosaur tooth to one of my small Nanotyrannus tooth that I have (this one was I.D. by CK Preparation to be Nanotyrannus rather than Dromaeosaur) it seem to have a lot in similarity at least from as much as I can tell and assuming that the Nanotyrannus baby tooth I have is really Nanotyrannus. Here is the presumed Nanotyrannus tooth that I have for comparison: So I am wondering, if my dromaeosaur may have been a misidentified baby Tyrannosaur tooth, or there really are Dromaeosaur teeth that have serration on only on the interior side, and perhaps what I really thought is a baby Nanotyrannus tooth is really another off-shoot of the variety of Hell Creek Dromaeosaur teeth? Any insight from Hell Creek theropod experts that could shine a light on my curiosity would be greatly appreciated. Thx
  23. Delta, Dromie and Carch are some of the most commonly offered by dealers and collected by many enthusiasts, but I am surprised to find that little has been written about how do you really distinguish these three teeth from one another, especially when they are in small size - in this case I am refering to 1" and below size where the 3 of them look very similar to the untrained eyes. This is especially even more complicated when it comes to Deltadromeus agillis tooth which from what I gathered, shouldn't really technically be accepted to really exist, and should be ideally labeled loosely as Moroccan theropod, yet they are very common in the collectors market, but when asking how can you really tell if they are not Moroccan dromaeosaur tooth or simply a young Carcharodontosaurus tooth, nobody seem to be able to conclusively tell. The reason I am creating this post asking this question is because I just acquired a couple of new small Moroccan teeth that although have been labeled as Deltadromeus, but I can't be certain if they are really Dromaeosaur or young Carch teeth: Specimen A: Specimen B: Any theropod experts here could give insight into how to identify and differentiate these troublesome teeth would be appreciated and I think many new collectors and enthusiasts of Moroccan dinosauria would find such insights and knowledge very useful. Thx.
  24. My Hell Creek Microraptorine sickle claw that I traded for a larger Hell Creek Dromaeosaur sickle claw. Probably Acheroraptor. The Microraptorine sickle claw after full restoration. It is related to Hesperonychus. I will miss it:
