  1. The Black Hills Institute sells a number of replica of their Stan T rex specimen to museums and here are some images of one being put together. Dialogue mostly by Pete Larsen. This specimen will be hung and going into a very confined space. No idea who is their client. STAN is the largest, most complete, Tyrannosaurus rex, of the male (or gracile) morphotype, ever found. Finished mounting the skull, Stan T.rex skeleton. It is, indeed, the nicest T.rex skull. Finished the ribs, scapula, arms, and gastralia. If you were swallowed by a T.rex, and made it nearly to the end of the alimentary canal, and had x-ray vision, this is the the view you would see just before becoming a coprolite One of the common mistakes made by those of us who mount theropod dinosaur skeletons is to mount the scapula-coracoids as if they were the scapulae of mammals. This is the correct configuration. Not only do articulated specimens verify this hypothesis, but (in non avian theropods) the furcula must articulate with the scapulae. mounting the pelvis Here’s how you fit a 20+ foot long tail in a 10 foot space! Had to beef up the front post in the sacrum-ilia steel support, which will hold more than 60% of the total weight. Here you can see the supporting steel before we closed the mold and poured the polyurethane foaming resin. This cast skeleton will be hung, so we needed to add a skyhook between Dorsal 1 and Cervical 10 Ilia and Dorsals Here is the left side of Stan’s pelvis and left leg, laid out in preparation for mounting. This skeleton is going into a very tight spot that takes a lot of engineering to make everything fit and still provide a pleasing and anatomically correct pose.
  2. Tyrannosaurid teeth

    Hello all! First of all,happy Easter to all Christians! Hope you are all having a wonderful day,Easter or not Easter. I was curious to know, which Tyrannosaurid teeth are the rarest complete??? Does it depend on...? Is it THE T-Rex or is it another Tyrannosaurid? I would want to know more about these incredible beasts. Do you know how many Tyrannosaurid species exists? What is the real Tyrannosaurid tooth jackpot? Kind regards for your help and comments. (Don’t quite know if this is the adequate topic... feel free to redirect it.) Thomas
  3. T-Rex jackpot?!

    I saw this tooth online for very cheap. The seller dosnt have a clue on what it is and the location. Could it be THE T-Rex? Or Carcharodontosaurus... It is 4 cm. Please tell me more! Appreciate it.
  4. Hi All, I'm new to this forum and thought I'd send over images of my theropod teeth plus one extremely impressive sauropod from Madagascar. Hope you like them! Paul
  5. Dinosaur Triva

    Tyrannosaurus rex, the initial indication that a big beast existed. This is the first recorded specimen of a T rex tooth collected in 1874. Displayed at the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, not described until 1905. Yes other than footprints, dinosaur material has been found in Connecticut. The Jurassic dinosaur skull of Anchisaurus polyzelus, Peabody Museum of Natural History. The label says it all. Type specimen described 1827. The term Dinosaur was coined 1842 by Richard Owens. Did you known that the holes in the dentary of the famous T rex "Sue" were caused by a Trichomonosis like protozoan that may have killed her. Based on other the frequency found on other specimens it's hypothesize that tyrannosaurids were commonly infected by this type of avian parasite. http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0007288 Checkout paper found in Fruitbat's super library. Common Avian Infection Plagued the Tyrant Dinosaurs Ewan D. S. Wolff , Steven W. Salisbury , John R. Horner, David J. Varricchio One of the largest Edmontosaurus annectens. skulls around 50" (127 cm).

  6. T Rex sketch

    I just saw this part of the forum! My 5 yr old is super dino obsessed. I stick notes/drawings in my kids' lunch boxes each day. Hers is ALWAYS a dinosaur. Sometimes it's just a cartoony doodle, but last night I had insomnia, so I spent quite a bit of time on this, trying to shut my brain down. T Rex is her favorite. To give credit where credit is due, I based this heavily on an illustration by Rudolf Farkas since my tired mind couldn't muster much creativity.
  7. Hello TFF, I was scanning through a really popular shopping website and for auction, 3 t rex teeth were for sale. They are not in the most perfect or beautiful condition but hopefully and at the moment, they are around my budget. I just wanted to make sure that they are actual t rex teeth not nanotyrannus as it can be sometimes confusing. Would really like to ask for your opinions. The photos may be a bit blurry and unfortunately, these are the only ones available. BTW, The largest tooth was found in two and had to be glued together. The rest were found as one piece. Thanks guys!
  8. My most recent and most exciting acquisition, a giant partial vert from a tyrannosaurus rex from the hell creek formation of Montana. Nearly went into cardiac arrest that I was able obtain such a large specimen from t rex, so I thought I would share. It really fills up the dinosaur collection and feels like it weighs a ton, I think the dimensions are somewhere around 6.5 inchs or so long and 10.5 inchs tall if I remember, would've been alot taller if the process was still intact and I like how the giant pores are visible cause of the damage. Super massive piece, I was worried about it collapsing my shelve but it fits fine so far.
  9. Tate Conference 2017

    until
    Hello FossilForumers- I want to let you all know that in June we will be hosting the 23rd annual Tate Conference. The theme this year is "High Tech and Old Bones". We have speakers from all over the USA speaking on all sorts of cool technologies they are using with fossils. Dr. Mary Schweitzer will be speaking on soft tissues in T rex as Keynote Speaker. We have talks on all sorts of topics from 3d printing to laser flourescence, to paleorobotics, and more. There will be two days of field trips. The first day is into the White River Formation near Douglas, Wyoming. The second field trip will be to Medicine Bow. We will do a historic tour of the Como Bluff area... not much collecting, then do a collecting trip to a Cretaceous ammonite site nearby (Cenomanian/Turonian Frontier Formation). The cost is 145 bucks for the conference only, and each field trip is 40 dollars. Space on field trips is reserved for people who also attend the conference. The conference is on June 2-4, 2017. Details and registration is available at: http://www.caspercollege.edu/tate-geological-museum/events/conference I hope to see a few Forum folks show up. This conference is always a lot of fun. I hear that from participants; I am too busy organizing and running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Feel free to ask me about details.
  10. T-Rex tooth pieces

    From the album Nigel's album

  11. Tooth..T Rex or other

    I have a tooth that i'd always thought was T Rex. Now that i've found this forum, I've some question about it. I did a serration count and it averages 22/cm on both proximal and distal. I found the tooth in 1969 in the Montana Milk River Badlands just a couple miles south of Alberta. I also found a phalange from which I thought was a T Rex too. I can put that in another post. The scale is in MM in the photo. o
  12. Is this a T-Rex Tooth

    Hi there, Was just wondering if this tooth is identifiable as being from a T-Rex? Thanks in advance!
  13. T Rex tooth tip

    T Rex tooth tip from Harding County, SD Hell Creek Formation
  14. My First T Rex tooth

    I am so ecstatic to finally have my first T Rex tooth thanks to Troodon It is a beautiful tooth tip. Comes from Harding County, SD Hell Creek Formation
  15. T rex tooth?

    Hello TFF, I started looking for T rex teeth these past few months and came upon this juvenile T rex tooth. It has got no visible serrations based on the photo. I asked the seller if he could give me some clearer photos of the specimen. I hope this is really a rex tooth! Would like to ask your opinion if it looks like a t rex tooth or not. Thank you all in advance for sharing your opinion!
  16. Since I can't afford a T Rex tooth, I would like to have a piece of root from a T Rex tooth just so I can have something from T Rex. Does anyone have a piece of root, even just a small piece? Thanks -Cameron
  17. Thought you tyrannosaur collectors and experts might like this article. It is about how they recently discovered that different teeth in T Rex's mouth did different things and had different serrations and tooth angles. It's really interesting. Check it out! http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/03/120318100451.htm
  18. Spinosaurus Teeth?

    Is this a legit uncleaned spinosaurus teeth?
  19. Is Nanotyrannus proven to be a separate species than T Rex or is it really just a jeuvenile Rex? Some people believe that it's a separate species. Others believe the latter. I don't know which one is correct. Let me know your thoughts!
  20. Well, just finished up a whirlwind pair of digs in South Dakota and Montana. I went dinosaur fossil hunting in the Hell Creek Formation at two sites: the first just northeast of Newell, South Dakota, and the second northeast of Jordan, Montana, right below Fort Peck lake. I had great weather; mostly 90-110 degrees F, low humidity and windy. The digs were very productive at both sites with many dinosaur teeth, turtle/croc scutes, dinosaur ribs and vertebra uncovered. Below are some of the better finds from South Dakota: 4+ inch T rex tooth uncovered by the group (good serrations and an intact tip) One of my finds, a complete 9 inch Thescelosaur ulna From Montana, we re-opened an old site and after pushing back some hillside we found a large depost of dinosaur bone material: Starting to uncover a probable triceratops vertebra And my favorite find, a triceratops rib that took me 3 days to dig out (with interesting breaks in the head and towards the distal end...note other partial ribs around it...) All in all, it was a great trip this year. Lance
