  1. Claw from HC South Dakota

    Hi all. I have a claw that I am considering. 1.75 inches. No restoration that I can see. Thanks in advance.
  2. Juvenile Nanotyrannus lancensis

    From the album Dinosaurs

    A tooth from a juvenile Nanotyrannus lancensis. Only missing the very tip.
  3. Edmontosaurus annectens

    From the album Dinosaurs

    Hadrosaurs evolved very interesting teeth and complex mastication. Read "Complex Dental Structure and Wear Biomechanics in Hadrosaurid Dinosaurs:" https://science.sciencemag.org/content/338/6103/98
  4. Acheroraptor teeth

    It is easy to find Acheroraptor teeth in fossil e-shop?
  5. Hi everyone, do you all think this would look better with the cracks filled and fully restored or as is?
  6. Theropod "finger bone"

    I saw this for sale as a theropod finger bone from Hell Creek, Garfield County. I googled theropod finger bones and nothing seems to match at all. To me, It looks more like a hadrosaur finger bone. Any thoughts? Thanks
  7. Thescelosaurus claw

    Hello, Just wondering if this is as described? A thesc claw would go well with my teeth and vertebra. From Hell Creek. Thanks
  8. I purchased this tooth a while back and i’ve always been suspicious about its authenticity, however i’m not sure. it’s advertised from the Hell Creek formation, and said to be a triceratops tooth
  9. Hell Creek - super mystery fossil

    Hello all! Any insight on this unidentified fossil, from Hell Creek Formation, in Harding County, South Dakota, would be deeply appreciated. The collector/seller is a deeply experienced and trusted seller, but they were not able to identify it. The specimen was found on the same ranch that often produces dromaeosaur, trike, and champsosaur partials. Please see images. [P.S., this is the 4th of 5 specimens that I'm posting for ID today; I deeply appreciate any insight that you can provide]. With gratitude, Ryan
  10. Hello all! Any insight on this unidentified fossil, from Hell Creek Formation, Montana, would be deeply appreciated. It was labelled 'cheek bone' by the original seller, but this looks nothing like the cheek bones that I own. Please see images. [P.S., this is the 3rd of 5 specimens that I'm posting for ID today; I deeply appreciate any insight that you can provide]. With gratitude, Ryan
  11. Hi all, I could not resist and purchased this tooth knowing it would be a tough call to make. It was found in the Hell Creek Fm. The big problem is the worn down mesial carina, there are however some remnant denticles I could measure, but not midline – more posterior. Taking them into consideration the tooth has distal 4.5 denticles per mm and mesial 6 per mm. The other measurements are: CH 1.47 cm / CBL 0.74 cm / CBW 0.39 cm. Based on this and the oval base I am leaning towards Dakotaraptor but might as well be a specific T-Rex tooth position.? I really need someone more experienced to take a look please. Any help is highly appreciated.
  12. Avisaurus tooth?

    Unfortunately, cant get better pics. But hope these are ok. Avisaurus, Hell Creek, 6mm. Seller said there aren't serrations. Thanks
  13. Hell Creek dinosaur jaw section

    Hey y'all, I have this jaw section from Hell Creek. It was sold by a small rock shop as "triceratops." I wasn't sure that it was, but bought it anyway. Is there a way to distinguish between ceratopsian and hadrosaur jaws? Or more specifically, are there identifiable features on this bone to assign it to either ceratopsian, hadrosaur, or neither?
  14. 2019 Hell Creek dig trip

    Yes, that title is correct I finally got my video finished and uploaded from last year's trip to South Dakota. This is a trip my son and I started making back in 2009 when he was 8 years old. Its always a fun time, with road trips and tourist trap stops, camping, exploring on top of the fossil hunt. The trip was awesome with us digging at a new quarry wall, lots of great fossils, but my gopro overheated a couple times and ate some of my footage. So I ended up putting this video edit on hold while I tried to decide what direction to take, and then I started prepping, and then I wanted to wait until I had the biggest pieces finished out to show.
  15. Nanotyrannus?

    I'd quite like to add a new theropod tooth to my collection. I saw these three for sale, just wondering if they are Nano/theropod as described and not, say, raptor teeth. Thanks Pictures 1 - 3 is 0.56 inch. This has a more oval base, does this mean it's not nano? Because aren't there teeth more rectangular with an indented middle? Pictures 4 and 5 is 0.47 inch -- No pictures of base for this one. Pictures 6 and 7 is 1.06 inch long, but has a repaired tip and is in matrix. Any help will be great. If they check out, I will select one of these. If not, I'll have a browse for some others.
  16. Hell Creek to Green River trip

    My son and I just got home last night from a 2 week fossil hunting trip. We loaded up the trailer and made our way up north to the Hell Creek formation in South Dakota. This was the 11th year since we started digging with Walter Stein of PaleoAdventures. We spent 4 days in the field at his Tooth Draw quarry. This started out pretty slow for us, with an Edmontosaurus neural arch with processes but was missing the centrum. My son found an unknown plate. Highly fractured but it looks to have 3 original sides. The underside is still encased in matrix so we wont know more until its prepped out while might take a while. The finds got better in last 2 days. We found a few big BOBs, lots of Trike spitter teeth, and then a nice limb bone, possibly from a crocodile. The last day gave up a wonderful complete Thescelosaurus vert with all processes. It may not be clear in the pic, but its all there in the matrix. Then came a Nanotyrannus tooth, a partial mammal jaw, a possible piece of turtle plastrom and a final tooth with could be nano or could be raptor. It will have to be cleaned to examine it better for a good ID. Sorry, I dont have a field pic of that one. The weather didnt get better though. Our last day it in the mid 90s, zero clouds and 40mph winds funneling down the draw and sandblasting us all day long. But with great finds, you couldnt pry us out of there.
  17. A selection of Hadrosaur teeth

    Hello, a selection of Hadrosaur teeth I'm interested in. Seller is uncertain of species on most, so any thoughts appreciated. 1 - From Judith River formation. 0.3 inch 2 - Judith river. 0.6 inch. Seems same species as 1? 3 - Judith river. 0.7 inch This one, it doesn't too clearly but seller says the tooth has denticles on the rim of the crown resembling Gryposaurus, but says Gryposaurus isn't from this formation yet. This one interests me most. 4 - Lance Formation. 0.8 inch. This one, seller is confident to be edmontosaurus. Many thanks
  18. Hell creek Vertebra

    Hi guys, Any idea what this vertebra is? I was thinking struthimimus/ornithomimid. found hell creek formation, Powder county, Montana, USA. best wishes @Troodon @LordTrilobite
  19. I am a fan of feathered dinosaurs and I had really wanted to get a fossil from a feathered dinosaur, the fluffier the better. Anzus are already on my list but as a student i cant get one with that price tag Something like a Raptor(dromeosaur like dinosaurs) would be good,but Im open to feathered ceratopsids therizinosaurids etc Doesnt matter what fossil it is,could be bone or claw or tooth,any suggestions?
  20. Trex skull section?

    Hello I was offer this has a trex skull section would it be form one? And was told its would be at the rear of the skull. Form hell creek formation
  21. Small hadrosaur jaw section

    From Hell Creek. Matches others online, but I will double check here to make sure. Would be a nice, cheap companion piece for my small hadrosaur teeth. 4 x 4 x 1.2. Thanks
  22. Hi everyone, I’m looking to trade for processed hell creek matrix. i have processed navesink fm matrix I’m willing to trade. I’m willing to trade 2 pounds of navesink fm matrix for every 1 pound of hell creek matrix I get.
  23. Triceratops Partial Skull Prep

    Hey everyone! I recently received a partial Triceratops sp. skull excavated from Meade County, SD. Unfortunately the skull was weathered before and after fossilization, what survived was the left brow horn, edge of the left squamosal, what I assume to be fragments of squamosal, fragments of parietal, a couple bags of float and what I think is possibly some of the jugal. The horn was already prepped but the frill fragments came mostly unprepared. I've done small prep on local Ordovician material as well as various bone fragments from the Hell Creek with hand tools to include practicing on pieces of the float, but never on this scale. My plans are to eventually make an awesome display piece with what I have. I was wondering if anyone had advice on how I should appropriately tackle the hard claystone that cakes a good portion of the material. Some of it is so thin that it seems pretty difficult to get it off without damaging the underlying bone. Also have used water to help soften and get the matrix off. I've tried to read all what I can on here as far as manual prep and the way to go about it, but knew people here would have specific experience with Hell Creek/Triceratops material. Also seeking any further advice on my progress and how I should go about it. I'll try to post more pictures as I go and will gladly post more if requested! Also was wondering what papers/material is out there that could maybe help identify what sizeable chunks of the frill could are what? Thanks! Started working on this piece a few weeks ago
  24. I've seen a couple of these for sale. This one is in my budget, but are they legit? Described as fragment of Edmonotosaurus skin from Hell Creek. It is 3 cm. by 2cm. Thanks
  25. Richardoestesia teeth?

    From a seller I'm gonna buy a pair of verts from. If these are Richardoestesia, I'll add them to the order. Two teeth from Hell Creek, Powder River County. 1.5 cm. The one on the left seems hollow, is this nornal for Richardoestesia teeth?
