  1. Hell Creek Vertebra ID

    Looking for a little help identifying this Hell Creek vertebra I purchased a few years ago. I bought it off an individual with lots of experience hunting in Hell Creek, but unfortunately he had no idea what it might be from. Any help would be much appreciated!
  2. A claw from Hell Creek

    I bought this claw a little while ago, for close to nothing. Still waiting for the item to arrive. Not sure what it is from though. It was dug up in Hell Creek. The claw and bone measure about an inch in length in total. Anyone who would have a qualified guess?
  3. When I first set out to collect Dinosaur fossils, a fossil dealer with a long history in the industry and from whom I had purchased shark fossils from had this listed for sale. It was sold as a Troodon formosus ( I am aware it is an invalid taxon). When I committed to purchasing this, i was unaware that only Troodontid teeth had been found in Hell Creek and I tended to believe dealer ID's. I do not regret the purchase. It is a great little bone to have in our education program and it was not expensive. We want to cover Troodontids in our education program which is why I bought this. It was cheaper than a tooth. It was also a good lesson to learn early on and without a significant financial investment. I do my homework know before purchasing a dinosaur fossil and if I have questions, I put it here. It seems unlikely that that the dealer ID is correct just based on the lack of Troodontid bones that come from Hell Creek. I want to know we have and be accurate in what we present to kids so I have put some effort into figuring this out. It is a very small vertebra as you can see in the pictures. I did find some small theropod caudal vertebrae that look similar including a Troodontid. I have done some homework on this and tried to figure it out but I can not get much further on my own. All I can say for sure is that is does not appear to be a fish or mammal and I do not think it is a crocodilian either. Any thoughts or information would be helpful !!
  4. We had an awesome item show up in our mail box today, an Edmontosaurus jaw fragment. It is the product of our first trade on TFF and it is really the first dinosaur piece we have that is not a tooth. We traded an extra dinosaur tooth for it. A Hell Creek for Hell Creek swap. Thank you @Captcrunch227 for an awesome trade and for being a great trade partner. We are super happy with the process and the end result. The mail brought another pleasant surprise. Our Acheroraptor tooth arrived. It is a beautiful tooth and a great addition. As if our day was not busy enough, we secured ourselves an Ankylosaurus tooth from Judith River and it is not a nodosaur. Right tooth from the right formation. I am not saying it is a tooth from Zuul at all but it gives us a chance to tell the kiddos that it MIGHT be . I think Zuul is the perfect species to discuss armored dinos that a lot of kids will recognize but also I am super fired about it. All and all, a pretty fantastic day off from work for me lol
  5. Acheroratpor tooth confirmation

    Based on the numerous and informative posts of @Troodon, I feel pretty confident that this tooth is an Acheroraptor. It is from the Hell Creek formation, South Dakota. I saw some things that looked diagnostic and the seller provided pics that were pretty good. Anybody want to confirm the ID or present an alternative ?
  6. Hell Creek Tooth- Theropod ??

    I started collecting dinosaur fossils fairly recently and so far I have a pretty good working idea of what I have. There is one exception and I thought I would share on the Fossil Forum and see how far I can get with an ID. My guess is that it I will not get much further then unidentified theropod but it could be something completely I suppose. It does not really look like the Acheroraptor tooth I have and it is larger. It does not look like a Tyrannosaurus of any kind to me either. I will work on getting better pictures up though I did get some detailed shots of the serrations on the micro eye at work. This is my first attempt at really assessing a tooth so my language and/or wording may be not be correct. Call it the learning curve lol This is what I know It is from Hell Creek, Powder County Montana Slightly over 1/2 inch long This is what I observed Serrations are larger on one side than the other and extend further on one side. The denticles look a bit rounded to me and seem very uniform but are really quite small. I counted 5-6 per mm but I had a hard time counting them and am probably wrong lol I THINK it might be a Dromaeosaurid but I am calling it unidentified theropod for now. If you know your dino teeth and feel like giving an opinion, I would love the input. I may not know what it is but I do know that is a pretty nice tooth to have. The serrations are in great shape even though they are small and the tip is worn but not broken. I got it at a reasonable price to so regardless of what it is, I am pretty stoked !
  7. What kind of tooth is this?

    I found a tooth here online and it claims to be a Raptor tooth from Hell Creek. It has a classic Kem Kem color and kinda looks like a croc tooth?
  8. Unknown theropod claw

    From the album Dinosaurs

    This is a fragment of a very small Triceratops spit tooth. Note some of the bone is still attached.
  14. T-rex Tooth (??)

    From the album Dinosaurs

    This is a shattered and crushed tooth from the Hell Creek formation sold as a T-rex tooth. It's difficult to know for sure because of the deformation. It's also possibly a raptor or the "nanotyrannus."
  15. Triceratops jawbone section

    From the album Dinosaurs

    This is a Triceratops jaw section from Hell Creek.
  16. Hell Creek fossil ID needed

    I have this fossil fragment here from Hell Creek, Montana. It came with a large shipment of edmontosaurus and triceratops bone. But I'm hoping to identify what type of bone this could be? Perhaps fragment of a scapula? Just wondering if anyone could shed light on this? It's very thin and has a slight curve and nice marks on the bone. Any help would be awesome! Thank you.
  17. Hi everyone, I was wondering how one would distinguish the armor skull plates of a gar with some of the osteoderms found on sturgeon. I have definitely found the former but cannot be certain if I've found the prior. From looking at some pictures online I see similarity between the two and wondered if I had any in my collection and if I could properly identify a fossil as sturgeon as opposed to gar.
  18. Mystery dinosaur Horn

    Here's another Cretaceous western fossil that needs an ID. Its either from Hell Creek or Lance Creek (will have to check my records again), and I initially purchased it as a young triceratops nasal horn. After looking at it some more, I'm wondering if it might be an ankylosaur spike, or maybe something else. Thoughts?
  19. Do you think this item has any repairs and is it a genuine t-rex tooth? I t is 2 5/8 in lenght.
  20. Crocodile ?

    Hi all Can I get some help please. I purchased this little vertebrae for £1.05 no money but quite nice. the label says Crocodile Hell Creek, Montana . I just wanted to check.
  21. Mystery fossil (dinosaur? Cretaceous?)

    Hey all, Can anyone help me ID this fossil? It was found at an antique store with no information. Its density and coloration really reminds me of something from out west, like Hell Creek or Lance Creek. There's also a a semi-circle pattern of holes towards one end that reminds me of a crocodile's bite. Any thoughts on the possible ID or if its something besides a croc bite?
  22. Hell Creek Tyrannosaur tooth tip , nano ? rex?

    Hi! I have a tooth tip from hell creek formation but I dont know if its nano or rex, the serration count fits within the t-rex range with 2 serrations/mm , but I do think its quite slender for a rex tooth. What do you think? I tried my best to get a photo of the serrations but it wasn't very easy. The tooth tip is just 16 mm.
  23. Hell Creek crush plate?

    Fossil teeth found in the Hell Creek badlands of southeastern Montana! measures approx .42 inches long Amphibian? They are from uppermost Cretaceous age (Maastrichtian) deposits, in the Hell Creek Formation, Carter County, Montana. Any help identifying would be appreciated.
  24. 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!
  25. 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?
