  1. 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.
  2. Judith River Montana bone

    Found in the Judith river formation of Montana. Mule deer or something older?
  3. I spent a few hours fossil hunting on two separate trips on Forest Service land in Montana. The first trip was this past spring looking for Late Oligocene - Early Micoene flora about 90 minutes outside of Missoula. The second trip was during at stint over the summer at a fire lookout tower in the Flathead where I spent just a few hours one morning looking at Devonian and Mississippian marine layers. Besides the obvious, the trips were quite different. The spring trip was a drive to a road cut on a Forest Service road while the summer trip was a seven mile hike in. Additionally the medium is completely different; flakey, brittle shale compared with big, blocky limestone. You can keep non-vertebrate fossils as long as you don't plan to sell them. Prior to heading to an area, I look through publicly available research, lectures, field trips, etc. to find possible localities. I only found limited information on possible identification of the Late Oligocene - Early Micoene flora and most of if was unpublished graduate work from a nearby site with only some overlap on species. Please feel free to correct any id's or throw new ones out! I believe these are cercocarpus, a mahogany.
  4. Fight Over Dinosaur Fossils Comes Down to "What is a Mineral?"

    This is an interesting legal battle about whether surface rights or mineral rights determines fossil ownership. Fight over dinosaur fossils comes down to what’s a mineral By Amy Beth Hanson, AP, Washington Post, November 16, 2018 https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/fight-over-dinosaur-fossils-comes-down-to-whats-a-mineral/2018/11/16/6025a23a-e9e7-11e8-8449-1ff263609a31_story.html The article states: "Ownership of two fossilized dinosaur skeletons found on a Montana ranch in 2006 are the subject of a legal battle over whether they are part of a property’s surface rights or mineral rights. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals issued a split decision saying fossils are minerals under mineral rights laws." Yours, Paul H.
  5. Tenontosaurus

    From the album Dinosaurs and Reptiles

  6. 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!
  7. Reticycloceras sp.

    From the album Invertebrates

    Reticycloceras sp. Early Carboniferous Serpukhovian Heath Shale Formation Bear Gulch Montana USA
  8. Hi, Was just checking our favourite auction site for fossils and i came across this. It is interesting because the seller has it listed as a Pteranodon wing bone from the Hell Creek Formation (in Montana), yet this seems odd because Pteranodon has not been described from the Hell Creek Formation and existed at a different time (around 85 mya), so this makes me skeptical whether this bone is pterosaur or possibly from something else like a theropod (the bone is 9 inches long). Any opinions if it is pterosaur or not, the pictures are a bit hard to tell by. Thanks.
  9. Hell Creek Digits

    Just looking for little help identifying these small digits from Hell Creek. I'm guessing the bottom two are likely dinosaur or reptile, but I'm unsure about the top one. Thanks in advance!
  10. Scaphite

    I was seven miles south of Glendive; Montana on October 12, 2018; time 1400; exploring a drainage cut into the Pierre Shale Formation while looking for concretions. This scaphites was partly exposed on the surface of a concretion. Later, I removed most of the surrounding matrix.
  11. Fossils given to us by 77 year old lady

    Hello everyone! I have turned to all of my personal contacts and university professors and am unable to identify the rocks a wonderful lady gave to me and my children. She's collected rocks for more than 70 years and cut and polished stones for the jewelry she made. She said she didn't know what type of "rocks" she had given us were. I have several boxes of what to me are very different than anything I have ever seen. I don't want to destroy anything by accident. She told me that she used to take her finds to be looked at about 40 years ago but stopped after she brought in something that she had cut up already. Apparently it was a dinosaur tooth and the lapidary shop gave her a lot of grief, she never went back. I'm having difficulty uploading pictures so I'll start with the one I find most interesting. It weighs 27lbs and seems to have some type of metal inside. Thank you for taking the time to look. David
  12. KT boundary micro glass

    From the album Invertebrates and plants(& misc.)

    Debris, including micro glass "beads" from melted earth ejected into the air, from the KT boundary burn layer. Garfield county, Montana, Hell Creek formation. Late cretaceous (duh) *i added "misc." to this album because this didn't fit anywhere, and I thought it was really cool and should definitely be included somewhere. **There could even be vaporized dinosaur material as part of the glass and melted debris included. There definitely was plenty of it, but I guess realistically, unless it became evenly spread into the atmosphere and airborne debris, this is too small an amount of ejecta, and by percentage such a minuscule amount of vaporized dino, so sadly there probably isn't any.
  13. Theropod Teeth ID's Check

    I believe I know the answers but like to confirm the ID's and raise a red flag if appropriate. Seller is offering the following from the Judith River Formation of Montana Saurnitholestes Tooth 1/4" Aublysodon Tooth 3/4" Daspletosaurus tooth 1.4" Daspletosaurus tooth 7/8"
  14. The seller put these teeth up for sale and identifies them as unidentified Dromaeosaurus teeth with possibly one being Acheroraptor. Looking for consensus on the identification, thank you for looking
  15. Some Judith River IDs

    Here are some small fossils I found back in the summer of 2017 in Montana up in the Judith River Formation. 1. Small reptile vertebra? (.5 cm) 2. Assorted tiny bones several of which are likely from birds. 2a. Hollow at the broken end (about .8 cm). 2b. Hollow at both ends (1.2 cm). 2c. Hollow at both ends as well, looks like limb bone. (1.5 cm). 2d. Appears to be hollow on both ends (.7 cm).
  16. Worn Down Theropod Tooth

    A couple of years ago my grandmother purchased me this theropod tooth offline for a cheap price. The only locality given was Hell Creek, Montana. I took it to my local geology museum and one of the paleontologists who took pictures of it for me told me that the serrations were nearly identical, but he said that it is a dromaeosaurid tooth in his opinion. I think it could be either nanotyrannus, dromaeosaurid or maybe just a theropod indeterminate. It is very worn down. What do you guys think?
  17. Saw these listed yesterday and the tooth was identified as a T-rex 1.55" long and Vertebra being from a Hadrosaur. Like to have confirmation on those ID's thanks
  18. Seller has listed these teeth as Daspletosaurus from the Judith River Fm, Hill County Montana Can you determine if this is a correct ID for these teeth. Thanks .
  19. I.D. help please

    I'm trying this a second time. I tried creating a post this morning but am unable to locate it anywhere. So, if this is a double post, please forgive me. This item was found on a ranch in central montana, judith basin county. We dig for native american artifacts. This was found by my 14 year old daughter, among the artifacts, under an old tree stump that i removed. I believe that it was brought in by ancient man. We have been digging for some time and do not typically find fossils here.
  20. Need help IDing MT fossils

    My family and I went fossil hunting in Gallatin County, MT a few weeks ago and came across these two fossils. They had come loose from a known Cretaceous shale area which regularly produces flora fossils of various quality. After a lot of comparisons online, we keep coming back to thinking this may be dino skin, however, this is not the area for common skin finds. (as far as I know!) Any insight or ideas is appreciated!! Thank you in advance for taking the time for a look.
  21. Montana Tooth ID

    Saw this identified as a carnosaur tooth collected in Montana. Any chance of a more specific ID with that info?
  22. Bone Fossil SW Montana

    I recently found this specimen near a river in SW Montana. It was partially buried in an area that was know to be a popular area for Native Americans to hunt/camp. It looks to be the bulbus end of a bone or epicondyle, but I am no expert. A smooth gray inner layer is surrounded by a brown porous outer layer that is smooth in spots but rough & eroded in others. It could be just a strange rock formation, but it was found in an area that had mostly old river rock and this stood out like a sore thumb. Its location also made it a very odd find. Anyone have any insights? Thanks!
  23. Seller is offering a hand claw and digit from an Alverasaurus Mononykus from Montana. Is it accurate?
  24. Trace fossils?

    I have no idea what this is? Any info would be helpful. I found it in a large boulder in the Snowy Mountains in Montana. Thanking you in advance!
