PaleoNoel posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHey everyone, I've entered the final week of my awesome 3 week excursion with PaleoProspectors! We finish in Northern Montana in the Judith River formation. Monday we started at microsite which was easily accessed and a location I had some success two years prior- in 2017 I found a Troodon tooth here among other nice fossils. It became readily apparent that this location was going to give us another productive day. Although I found no complete theropod teeth early on, I did find a number of partials and fragments, along with spit teeth and some crocodilian fossils. The beautiful view from where we parked. Piece of crocodilian osteoderm Some spit teeth, most likely hadrosaur. The tip of a tyrannosaurid tooth A view from the microsite And now for my big find of the day! A huge tyrannosaurid tooth. I was so excited that I had to prep it out that night and I was happy with how it came out. oh yeah I also found a lil croc tooth after this. Some more views of the site and who I'm collecting with
I acquired this tooth a while back from a seller who labeled this as daspletosaurus. He said it was collected in the Judith river formation. Is there any way to tell if this is correct? The Judith river formation according to Wikipedia has only two tyrannosaurs, deinodon and aublysodon (which is possibly a junior synonym of deinodon) so I'm guessing it's one of those? Any one know anything further?
