  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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?
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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?
  13. One more Judith river weirdo

    One more odd one - again, Judith river formation northern Montana. Weird asymmetry that’s got me wondering. Found in the same location as a bunch of other Dino bones - almost like a washout. Crocs, meat eaters, hadrosaurs, all in the same a spot
  14. Help Identifying Hell Creek Bones

    I've just cleaned up a big batch of Hell Creek bones and I'm struggling to ID a few of them. I have some ideas as to a few, but others I'm clueless (and I'm sure some won't be able to be ID'd beyond indeterminate dino/reptile bone). These four are all pretty big. The largest, second from the right, is just over 6.5 inches. I've attached a picture of that one before I repaired it as it has very thick walls. That bone and second from the left are very heavy for their size, so I'm assuming they're theropod (probably leg bones). I haven't a clue with the other two, but they're an odd shape.
  15. Pachycephalosaurus vert

    Hello, Another possible Pachy vert I'd like to add to probably add to my collection--if it is a pachy and not something else. It measures 4.4cm by 4.1 cm and is 4cm thick. It is described as a caudal vert and is from Hell Creek, Powder River County, Montana. Many thanks
  16. I am looking to trade small flat rate box(es) of Ordovician or Mississippian matrix for unsorted Permian Wellington f. (Waurika) or K Firesteel Creek (Hell Creek) matrix. PM me if you are interested. (or any other interesting micro faunal matrix)
  17. Tiny Hell Creek claw?

    5mm across. Labelled as possibly a Dromaeosaur. From Upper Cretaceous, Montanna. USA. Any thoughts, please?
  18. Unidentified theropod

    This next tooth im posting is another one from the Hell Creek Formation. It was found in the Tooth Draw Quarry in Butte County South Dakota. Its CH is 14.5 mm CL is 5.5 mm Its got a round base I wish i could give you a serration count but there arent any so this may be a tough one. Paronychodon maybe? Give it your best guess! @Troodon
  19. unidentified theropod

Ill post a bunch of pics since some are better than others...anyway let me know what you all think ! @Troodon
  20. Dinosaur claws

    Hey guys. I saw these claws online and I was wondering what Dino they are from. they are very small and incomplete. I am aware of the poor quality of the pics but unfortunately it’s all I have. Hopefully you guys can still tell. From Hell Creek fm. Thanks and kind regards.
  21. Triceratops Collar Piece?

    I have seen this item for sale and if genuine it would be a cool thing to add to the collection. But can it be identified as a triceratops collar piece with any certainty? The description says [it is a Triceratops collar fragment from the Hell Creek Formation in Montana, USA].
  22. Looking for hell creek matrix

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone knows where I could get hell creek matrix? If someone knows of a source, please pm me. Preferably macro but either would be good. Please pm me if you know someone. tia.
  23. Hell Creek turtle prep

    Earlier, I posted a box of some of my older material I found hiding in my garage. Included in that box were a couple of turtle bits including a partial carapace and partial plastron. This bit is a hypoplastron (if my research is correct) of Basilemys Axestemys?. This poor thing was in terrible condition when I opened up the foil pack. Here are the pics as I opened it and the opposite side (disintegrating even worse) after I glued back together. I took 30 minutes of cell phone video of the initial cleaning and then compressed it down. Sorry, theres no audio. This was a "quick and dirty" video and edit. Here are pics of both sides at the end of the day. Still a little bit left to do, but its very hard glue and delicate spots.
  24. Hello everyone! I found this little tooth for sale and was wondering if it could be ID'd as a Nano or T-Rex. It is from the Hell Creek Fm, Garfield Co, MT and is 12mm x 8mm x 4mm. I thought it had the chance to be a T-Rex maxillary tooth since I don't see a pinch on the base and has a robust tip. Thanks for your input!
  25. duck-billed dinosaur tooth

    My last acquisition was this worn teeth of what the seller used to describe as duck-bill dinosaur from the Hell Creek Formation in Montana. In my opinion it does look like some hadrosaurid teeth but I cannot assign it to a single species...
