Hello, my son brought me this sparkling enamel fossil and I recognized it as a possible premaxillery tooth of a tyrannosaur?? I have found much larger ones but not ever this tiny. Any ideas what species it could belong to? Baby Albertosaurus? Raptor?
dingo2 posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionI took a trip out to the scollard formation in Alberta the other day for the first time. I've been hunting in Alberta for years now, but only recently decided to try and branch out from our old hunting grounds. I was unaware that there were T-Rex fossils in our province, but I read through a few old posts on this forum about some massive teeth being pulled out of Alberta so I decided it was worth a shot. I told my dad about it and we decided to drive out on his birthday. I ended up finding a few broken T-Rex teeth, one would have been well over 3 inches. My dad easily had the find of the day with this intact tooth. Probably the best birthday present one could recieve. We will definitely be going back soon, but I want to educate myself on the scollard more before we go again. I was planning to be able to identify the whitemud, battle formation, and kneehills tuff, but failed in practice. If anybody here has explored the scollard in the past, I'd love to get some pointers on navigating, as you can only run up and down the hoodoos so many times before you're done for the day.
Hi the debate about Nanotyrannus got me thinking is Nanotyrannus found in Alberta Canada in the Scollard or Frenchmen Formations. If not then it could be valid since T-Rex is found there and if it’s a juvenile Rex then there should be a least some evidence for It there, since T-rex’s are found there. And if so this could provide Nanotyrannus’s range.
