I've a large metacarpal that i'm sure if from a Tyrannosaurus, however, i'm not certain of the species. i found it in the Judith formation in the Montana Milk River Badlands just a mile or so south of Alberta. it measures 6 3/4" long, 3" tall and 3 1/4" across, but i don't think that information is important in the ID. Any help in ID even of where in the foot it's from would be appreciated.
Last week I was able to meet up with some serious ammonite hunters. I started with a rancher east of Milk River and we went about 100 kms east of there into the badlands and looked for dinosaur fossils. Lots of pieces but nothing of any import, but it was a good outing. I then met with friends at Bow City and we entered some coulees up from the Bow River (on private land, with permission) and we found some fabulous ammonites. One that I am pictured in still rests there today as it was much too big for us to get and and believe me, we would have if it were possible. We made three trips that day alone into the coulees hauling out ammonite pieces. The last part of the trip was in the Manyberries area of Alberta and it was quite the moonscape we searched for ammonites, cuttlefish, and lobsters in. I only found a few pieces, but the one with the Mosasaur teeth marks in it is special. As I get older it gets a lot harder to keep up with these guys, but I'll keep trying as long as I can find room for the goods I bring back. Oh, the rattlesnake was special. It didn't want to give way at all and we had to distract it just to get around it. Still, we were the ones trespassing on its home turf so it had a right to rattle a bit.
