  1. Various Raptor Teeth?

    Any idea what these raptor teeth are, or if they're even are raptor teeth? Allegedly there from Lance formation, Wyoming. Definitely not in the best condition, but hey, any fossil is a good fossil.
  2. Chirostenotes claw

    A Chirostenotes claw
  3. Archaeoraptor sickle claw

    From the album Dinosaurs fossils

    Archaeoraptor sickle claw Hell creek formation
  4. Kem Kem tooth ID

    OK, I know it's gonna be an Abelisaurid, gotta check with you guys though! Pictures should say it all.
  5. Late Pleistocene bird claws

    These two claws were collected from tar seeps in Kern County, California by the late George Lee back in the 70's. I have seen bird claws identified to species before and would like to know if these two can be as well. A friend has a variety of fossils from there and asked me about these today. The larger claw is 31 mm from tip to most distant part of the back of it. The other is 27 mm. Thanks, Jess
  6. My Kem Kem Tooth Collection

    I just acquired some new specimens in my Moroccan Kem Kem dinosaur and reptile tooth collection. Thought i'd show you guys the lot. They are all from the Kem Kem/Tegana Formation near Taouz, Morocco. As you can see i love collecting dinosaur and reptile teeth from this area! The larger ones are incredibly rare and virtually non-existant at the formation nowadays. I'm quite proud of them! What do you guys think? P.S- that "Ankylosaur" tooth was infact looked at by Robert Bakker. He thinks it is from an Ankylosaur, which is ultra rare because no Ankylosaurs are known from the formation yet!
  7. Is this a Moroccan raptor tooth?

    I just acquired what I believe to be a dromaeosaurid indet. sp. from the Kem Kem Beds. The tooth measures 19.5 mm long. Serration count on the mid for distal is 14/5mm, and mesial is 20/5mm This tooth is blade-like, and resembles my other raptor teeth. However, Moroccan teeth are often misidentified, so I would like your input.
  8. Here's my Two Medicine formation collection from Montana. It's all Daspletosaurus besides one Saurornitholestes tooth. I'm hoping to get specimens of some of the Two Medicine herbivores in the future. Pics 2 and 3= Daspletosaurus tooth in matrix Pics 4 and 5= Daspletosaurus partial tibia Pics 6 and 7= Daspletosaurus toe bone partial Pics 8 and 9= Daspletosaurus vertebrae process Pics 10 and 11=Saurornitholestes tooth
  9. Please help Id these raptor teeth

    I was hopeing to get some help with the id of these raptor teeth. The small tooth I’ve had for a long time and I don’t have any info on its location. The larger tooth I just recently purchased and the info the seller listed is below. Any help would be greatly appreciated. "It was found in upper Cretaceous age deposits, Tegana Formation, in the phosphate mines of southern Morocco (near Taouz)."
  10. Possible raptor tooth?

    So.......I've recently gotten into fossil collecting. It's very addicting, I'll admit. Anyway, I recently bought a neat little Kem Kem tooth that was supposedly listed as a "dromaeosaur" or "raptor" tooth. It wasn't too expensive, and of a decent size and quality, so if by chance it wasn't some sort of raptor tooth, I wasn't going to cry about wasting money. I have no idea why, since ignorance is bliss, but I had a sudden urge to look up identifying raptor teeth and stumbled across this impressive site (thank you for existing!!!!). I am now quite certain that my Kem Kem "dromaeosaur" tooth is most likely from some abelisaurid species, which I'm totally fine with since I was planning on buying one anyway. I'll post pictures of it later, since I already own it and can (hopefully) have it identified to the most likely species at my leisure. However, I stumbled across this tooth on my search for elusive raptor teeth. The seller has surprisingly (and respectably) titled it as an unclassified tooth from the Kem Kem area. To my amateur eyes, it looks like it might possibly belong to a raptor? It is supposedly 0.6 inch long. These are the only pictures the seller has provided so far, hopefully they will work. It looks like the mesial serrations (hopefully I'm using that right! New words, yay!) look like they curve slightly to the lingual surface at the base, at least to me.... I roughly sized up a picture of a ruler with millimeters to the pictures of the tooth. There are roughly 4 serrations per millimeter on the mesial side, and 3 per millimeter on the distal. What do you think? Lingual surface is the first picture, labial is the second.
  11. Dromaeosaur

    Dinosaur teeth from North Carolina are rare and have only been found in a handful of locations. Other than one well known location, these other sites are kept very close to the vest for obvious reasons. Most North Carolina collectors will never find one. This tooth is a Dromaeosauridae, probably the most common theropod known from North Carolina. My tentative I.D. ?Sauronitholestes langstoni is based on photographs of a tooth that has been positively I.D.'d by Dr. David Schwimmer from the same site where I found this tooth. Once I get a confirmation or negative assessment I will either remove the question marks from my I.D. or just assign it as Dromaeosauridae indet.
  12. 3 hell creek theropod teeth

    I found these three teeth on a certain auction site (all 5/8" long) listed as raptor teeth (probably just based on size), but clearly the first two are not. They must be either Nanotyrannus or T. rex. The cross section of the first is very rectangular like Nanotyrannus, but also very robust/"fat". I'm leaning toward Nano on this one. The second seems more oval shaped so I'm leaning a little toward T. rex on this one. I'm not really sure on either though. As for the third one, my gut says Nanotyrannus. The anterior and posterior serrations are definitely too similar for Acheroraptor (I have one, very different), but could it possibly be Dakotaraptor? Any help here is appreciated. I'm really not very interested in Nanotyrannus teeth right now but I am very interested in small mislabeled T. rex or Dakotaraptor teeth. tooth #1: tooth #2: tooth #3:
  13. Claw back from restoration

    I just got my large Acheroraptor temertyorum digit II-3 killing claw back from the restorer. He added the missing 1/4” back on to the top of the articulating end and added the missing 3/4” of the tip. The rest of the claw is complete, as it was found nearly whole. It’s one of my prized possessions and I am so happy with the restoration work. The claw was found in Powder River County, Montana’s Hell Creek Formation.
  14. Kem Kem Raptor Humerus

    I bought a number of cool little Kem Kem fossils recently. There's a number of quite interesing ones in there. One of them turned out to be pretty special. As far as I know Dromaeosaurid material is pretty rare in the Kem Kem beds. But this seems to be the upper part of a right humerus of a raptor. Other Theropods are generally pretty different and those of birds while more similar also don't match. the bone is obviously hollow but the bone wall is still fairly substantial, which makes me think its Dromaeosaur instead of bird. The bone is also almost identical in shape and size to the humerus of the small Dromaeosaurid Bambiraptor. Though mine is obviously not as complete, but still very nicely preserved in 3D. I feel confident enough to call this raptor that I wanted to share this with you guys. Bambiraptor humerus. Needless to say, I'm really happy with this piece.
  15. I found this leg bone for sale on the internet? But is it a real raptor leg bone? Seems way to small for me and thought maybe it is pterosaur or bird?
  16. Raptor vertebra?

    I just recently bought this on a certain auction site (that I've been spending too much time on lately). The seller said it is most likely a raptor caudal vertebra. It was a surface find from the Judith River Formation about 30 miles north of Glasgow, Montana. Is the seller's ID accurate?
  17. Good afternoon to all! A salesman from Taouz, Morocco, offered me this tooth. I think this tooth is very similar to the family Dromaeosauridae (raptor). What do you think? Thank you for all the answers. Please, what do you think, my friend Troodon?
  18. Raptor Behavior

    Hi do you know how a raptor fights
  19. Raptor Arm

    Partial right humerus (upper arm) of an undiscribed Dromaeosaurid. The size is very similar to that of Bambiraptor. This animal was possibly just over a meter long.
  20. hi, what do you think about this please ? and this raptor egg ?
  21. Raptor tooth from Morocco

    Hello my friends, I am showing my new purchase: it is defined by the seller as a generic raptor tooth which comes from Kem Kem Morocco. First of all is this identification right? Secondly is it possible to specify more in detail the species? Thank you very much Alessio
  22. Hi! Below I have some pictures of dinosaur eggs. Picture 1 is stated as a dendroolithus egg. Picture 2, 3, 4 and 5 are stated as "Hadrosaur" eggs. Picture 6 is stated as a segnosaur egg. Picture 7, 8 and 9 are stated as "Raptor" eggs. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 The price ranges from a few hundred dollars up to $2,500. And my questions are, how much is a dinosaur egg really worth, depending on the quality and species? And when is this kind of deals "to good to be truth"? How common are real dinosaur eggs? What can you do to avoid getting scammed? I might be interested in buying a dinosaur egg, and since there is so many fake ones out there it is good to be aware of as many signs as possible, that might indicate a "to good to be truth" or a "fake" deal.
  23. Fossils

    What is this fossil dino? Is this real? It is a raptor but I don't know what raptor
  24. Possible raptor tooth?

    Please help me identify this tooth. I am fairly new to fossil collecting. Like many I've had my brachiopods and thumb print size trilobites for years, but nothing as cool as an actual fossilized tooth. Hence why I must admit right up front I was recently duped by the whole Deltadromeus label when purchasing something new for my collection. I'm a classroom teacher and I was in the midst of an intense unit on dinosaurs and fossils and I was eager to find some hands on examples to bring to my students. I jumped on an auction site and for a few tens I purchased this tooth. I wasn't motivated by the fact that it was a Deltadromeus tooth, but simply an actual fossilized tooth....something really different from anything I already owned. Fast forward a couple of weeks when I decide to look online for more "Deltadromeus" teeth and find a link to this forum - and a wealth of information explaining to me in very clear language why it is impossible for me to definitively claim this tooth as Deltadromeus! (A huge thank you by the way!) Trouble is, now I'm not sure how to descibe this item when presenting to students and/or friends and neighbors. I'm excited enough to be holding a fosslized dinosaur tooth. (OK, after saying that I'm holding my breath that it really is a dinosaur tooth after my recent stegosauria dissappointment!) While it would be great to give it a specific name so I could open a book and say "It's from that dinosaur" - it's far more important for me to be accurate, no matter how "general" that accuracy may be. That being said, what would be an appropriate way to identify this tooth? Is it correct for me to call it a Theropod tooth? Would it be correct to take it one step further and call it a raptor tooth or is theropod already going too far down the list of scientific classification? Due to the serrations does that indicate a carnivore tooth or is that simply an assumption? The last photo is kind of dark but it does show serrations on both sides. I am grateful for any and all assistance.
