fossilsonwheels posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionI was hoping somebody on TFF might be able to point me in the direction of any scientific papers, research or information that members here might have put together regarding dromaeosaurid theropods from the Judith River formation. This is not really about identifying any teeth, though I do have one from that formation. I am starting to do my research for the education program and am looking for scientific information. From what I can gather, there is a possible Saurornitholestes species and of course the dinosaur I have seen referred to as Julieraptor, which is a interesting story all on its own. I have also seen Dromaeosaurus listed from that formation. I would like to sort out what is known and unknown from the formation and the best way to present our "raptor" tooth to the kids. Any help links or suggestions as to where I might find more information on this would be much appreciated
David Evans who described Acheroraptor shared this photo and information on a few notable Dromaeosaurid's. Thought it would be of interest to the Dino guys and others. I also show a hand next to an adult Velociraptor skull which gives a real life size comparison, since a lot of depictions and replicas sold are well oversized. Acherorapter is from the Maastrichtian of Hell Creek/Lance Formation Saurornitholestes shown from Campanian of Canada/Montana Velociraptor from Campanian of Asia David: How big was the Hell Creek dromaeosaurid Acheroraptor temertyorum (top)? It’s about 25% bigger than Saurornitholestes (middle) and 66% bigger than Velociraptor (bottom). For reference it’s about 15% smaller than Deinonychus
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.
