  1. What body parts is this?

    I've been combing through some miscellaneous hell creek specimens over the past couple of weeks & have come up stumped on a couple of chunk-o-saurus fossils. I'm wondering if anyone recognizes this bone. Its part of a formed edge, meaning it seems to have a noticeable structure to it. I'm just not sure who it may have belonged to or what part of the skeleton it may be from. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!
  2. Hadrosaur Phalanx?

    I'm wondering what this is. My best (non-expert) guess is that it is a toe bone of some sort. It's about a couple inches (appx. 5cm) in length & equally wide. It resembles some smaller Hadrosaur phalanges I've come across, but that is just a guess. To the best of my knowledge, it hails from Hell Creek. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
  3. Amphibian (Scapherpeton) jaw section?

    Hi everyone, I haven't posted an ID in a while as I'm at college and don't have ready access to my fossils to take pics. However tonight, through sheer coincidence, I noticed a recognizable fossil online after looking at the new discovery of an albanerpetonid amphibian preserved in amber. After checking if these amphibians had been found in the Hell Creek I see an image come up of a jaw identified as belonging to scapherpeton (a true salamander) and recognized some features similar to a specimen of my own which I had never posted. I found this small jaw section in the Hell Creek fm. of North Dakota and while I don't remember a specific measurement I am confident that is was about 1 cm in length give or take a few mm. Here's the pic of the jaw I saw online, posted by the national museum of natural history on their google arts and culture page. Here's my small jaw:
  4. Misidentified Dino Mandible

    Hi I saw this on an auction site. The website claims it is "Dromaesaurus" which does not make sense in my opinion. I was wondering what it is instead? Also, since the teeth are quite different in terms of size and shape I am wondering if it is a composite. Formation: Hell Creek Location: Montana, USA Length: 5.5 inch , 14cm

  6. E. annectens feeding wear

    From the album Dinosaurs

    In this image, you can see the enamel, dentine, and pulp cavity. The surface is worn flat and smooth. Nice blue color in there.
  7. Hello, I saw these fossils, according to the seller they are dinosaur vertebrae, found in Hell Creek, but he does not mention any species or group of dinosaurs. What I want to know is if they look like dinosaurs to you, either ornithopod or theropod, and if they look like other hell creek fossils you've seen. Thanks in advance.
  8. Need help ID this hollow bone

    Hi I need help ID this bone. Location : Carter country , Montana: Hell creek formation it is quite small and hollow.. May be from limb bone of theropod dinosaur ? i am not sure pls help. thank Guns.
  9. Anzu Claw

    Hi All For your consideration, I have a Hell Creek claw that I believe to be from Anzu pes claw. It has the pinch at the bottom of the claw that @Troodon had described prior. Right at 2 inches. Seems to have some restoration at the distal tip. Your thoughts would be appreciated.
  10. 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.
  11. Juvenile Nanotyrannus lancensis

    From the album Dinosaurs

    A tooth from a juvenile Nanotyrannus lancensis. Only missing the very tip.
  12. 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
  13. Acheroraptor teeth

    It is easy to find Acheroraptor teeth in fossil e-shop?
  14. Hi everyone, do you all think this would look better with the cracks filled and fully restored or as is?
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. Avisaurus tooth?

    Unfortunately, cant get better pics. But hope these are ok. Avisaurus, Hell Creek, 6mm. Seller said there aren't serrations. Thanks
  22. 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?
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
