  1. Theropod Claw Confirmation

    And now my last fossil for the night, one of my favorite fossils in my collection ever is the theropod claw my dad found (I always give credit when he's the discoverer) in the Lance fm. of Wyoming the summer before last. It was identified by the guide as potentially being a Nanotyrannus hand claw but I wanted to confirm that with other members on TFF. It's about 2.5 cm in length.
  2. Carcharodontosaurid tooth

    Acquired from a British fossil dealer in November 2018. Labeled Carcharodontosauridae indent. due to the presence of at least two carcharodontosaurids (Carcharodontosaurus saharicus and Sauroniops pachytholus) in the Kem Kem Beds.
  3. Unknown theropod claw

    Hi everyone, This is a claw from Hell Creek Montana. Can someone give me a better ID of what it is exactly? Thanks!
  4. Unidentified bone from Kem Kem

    Hey guys, I have bought this bone of the Kem Kem Formation in the internet. But I´m not sure about the identfication. The bone was sell as "Dromaeosaur bone"... The bone is 113mm (4,5 ") in lenght. I hope, that you can hleb me with the ID. Kind regards
  5. Deltadromeus tooth?

    I've been looking at this tooth which is labeled as Deltadromeus agilis from the Kem Kem Basin by the seller. I know labeling teeth as Deltadromeus is iffy due to the lack of skull material, so does anyone have an idea of a possible classification for it? I've tried looking at Troodon's Kem Kem theropod teeth guide but haven't managed to make an ID. Any help would be appreciated!
  6. Tyrannosaurid indet.

    From the album My Collection

    Tyrannosaurid indet. (Likely Daspletosaurus horneri or Gorgosaurus sp.) Two Medicine Formation Browning, Montana
  7. I found this theropod tooth in some Lance Formation material. I believe it is a dromaeosaur tooth, but was wondering if it is fairly complete or just the tip. The serrations get smaller toward the base and the curvature of the tooth seems to be curving back toward the base. What do you think? Hash marks are 1mm. Thanks.
  8. Kem Kem Carc?

    Recently purchased this nice little fossil. It’s sold as Carcharodontosaurus, but I know this stuff is tricky to tell...could anyone tell me their thoughts? Possibly another theropod, etc? Cool specimen nontheless
  9. Hey guys, Hello I am from Germany. That's why I apologize for my bad English. This tooth (top right in the picture) I have recently screaked from the US. The tooth comes from the Hell Creek Formation (Wyoming). It was sold as a "Raptor" tooth. He is about 7mm (0,28") long. I´m not sure, to which dinosaur the tooth belongs, thats why I asked my question in this forum. I hope, that you can help me! Thank you in advance and kind regards!
  10. Kem Kem Theropod Tooth ID

    Hi Everyone, I wondered if I could get a second opinion on this tooth I got hold of a few years ago from the Kem Kem beds. It was advertised as a 1.7" Carcharodontosaurus saharicus but it looks nothing like most of my other Carcharodontosaurus teeth. I've attached below some photos. It's very narrow both laterally as well as across it's width. The carinae are both central and straight with no real twist. The mesial count is 18/5mm and the distal is 13/5mm along the midline. I've sadly no more details on location apart from Kem Kem. Any help would be greatly appreciated but I recognise that isolated teeth from Kem Kem can be problematic. Thanks. Tom
  11. Hi, just wanted to check if this fossil for sale is likely to be from a theropod. It is a ilium pelvic bone just under 20 inches in length. From what i can gather, theropod ilium's are wide and thin?. Thanks.
  12. Hell Creek Teeth ID

    Hi All, I wondered if you could help with the ID of two small teeth I found in the Hell Creek formation in SE Montana (in a microsite). The first is what looks like a Thescelosaurus tooth, but I think looking at it again it might be Ankylosaurus magniventris (it's small at 0.25"). The second is a small Theropod tooth (0.55") is a strange looking tooth which I can't place. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've taken some photos in hand and then a few under the microscope. Thanks in advance for any help.

  17. Carnivorous theropod claw

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is definitely not the end of a digit from a large carnivorous theropod. The only potentials from the Morrison formation where it was found, would be different species of ceratasaurs, allosaurs, and torvosaurus, right? and they, along with most carnivorous theropods have claws at the end of every digit, including the little foot&heel stubbies, don't they? wouldnt this have to be from something without claws? Or at least no claw on this?

  19. Theropod bone?

    Hi, I am looking at this bone from the kem kem and i was wondering how do you tell the difference between a theropod bone and a crocodilian bone?. The bone is hollow but only a bit (the hollow part still has matrix in it), does the morphology of this bone suggest theropod? Thanks.
  20. Daspletosaurus toe?

    Listed as a toe end metatarsal from Two Medicine formation, NW Montana. Would be this be Daspletosaurus hornei / Gorgosaurus sp. or indeed is 100% Daspletosaurus?
  21. Theropod indet. ?

    This is an Afrovenator tooth from Marraba, Niger (Tiouraren Formation). The fossil is in rough shape, but rare. I’m still working developing an eye for noting the differences, but still difficult for me..Having trouble determining if it is indeed Afrovenator, Carcharodontosaurus sp. , or undescribed theropod. I tried comparing different teeth, but still have issues. Any opinion on this appreciated.
  22. Theropod tooth from France

    Any ideas what this might be or is it too small to id? Also don't have denticle count but I don't think that would even help as it is such a small tooth. If this is the case then I guess it's another tooth that is a Theropod indet….Anyone familiar with teeth from France? 9mm in size Chevres-Richemont Quarry Chevres-de-Cognac, Charente, South West France
  23. Not much has been published focusing on theropods from New Jersey. Nice to see a new paper that looks at the assemblage at the Ellisdale site of New Jersey. The distinctive theropod assemblage of the Ellisdale site of New Jersey and its implications for North American dinosaur ecology and evolution during the Cretaceous Chase D. Brownstein https://www.cambridge.org/core/journals/journal-of-paleontology/article/distinctive-theropod-assemblage-of-the-ellisdale-site-of-new-jersey-and-its-implications-for-north-american-dinosaur-ecology-and-evolution-during-the-cretaceous/96A7436DCD5866236C472749729F88B6 cf Dryptosaurus Dromaeosaurid Indeterminate
  24. 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?
