  1. Hi everyone! Just wanted to share with you all this great Triceratops tooth I recently acquired at a very low price! This is the first dinosaur tooth in my collection, and though it's small, I really like it!
  2. Hi folks... It has been a long summer, but it is finally starting to snow here. Thought I would share a few adventures from this past summer. This first post is about a wedding. On the 4th of July, my honey and I got married. We had thought of just going to the judge and get it done, but I showed her a cool spot for a wedding, and she agreed. We got married on a not-yet-excavated dinosaur in the late Cretaceous of eastern Wyoming. Here is the site. It is on a buffalo ranch. That is the herd in the distance. We went out on the spring with some friends who actually like to plan weddings (I don't get it), and this big guy prevented us from going to the site. We had to wait. Of course this led to the question of what if the herd is right here on wedding day? I guess you gotta have something to worry about in a wedding. And here are Pickles and Snickers, two dogs named after food. They are standing on the bones we were to get married on. This is on that same spring recon outing with the wedding planners. The bones are orange-ish. They are encased in a white rock. Between the photographer's feet and the dogs is the sacrum of the animal. I am tentatively IDing this as a ceratopsian. Between the dogs and under Pickles (the black dog) is what I think is the pubis or ischium. And lots of pieces of bone all over the place. The next photo shows the same pile of bones in the foreground. In the background is Becky (future wife in this photo) pointing to another bone coming out of the continuation of the same white rock. I suspect there is quite a bit of this guy in the ground. Fast Forward to the fourth of July. We managed to drag 100 plus people out to this site, an hour plus north of Lusk, Wyoming; 20 plus miles down a dirt road. Our friends the wedding planners did a great job setting up things like the arbor (chuppah in Hebrew) and the shelter for the sun sensitive, like my 80 year old parents. Note the school bus and porta potty on the horizon. The weather was actually quite perfect. We did the ceremony in the morning to avoid the possibility of 100 plus degrees in July. This is incredibly green for this time of year. We had a wet spring and summer. And here is my lovely bride in among the hoodoos. And now for the official ceremony. And there was much rejoicing. But you guys are here for fossils. so on to chapter two.
  3. Hi everyone! I found this in Montana this summer, and I'm pretty sure it's a triceratops digit. If so, is there a way to tell which it is? Just bored and curious. Also, which side would the vale core have attached to? The bumpy, textured side? It was pretty shattered when I found it, so I pieced it together. The white stuff is pales putty I just haven't painted yet. Thank you! -Lauren
  4. I was raking leaves in the backyard, and in the water of a tiny stream in the wooded/swamp area i found what appears to be a large, petrified bone of some kind. Who can tell me what it is? Its hard and brittle like rock and ive found native american artifacts in the same area. Found in Channahon, Illinois.
  5. Reading technical papers (pdf) is like going to the dentist you would rather not do it but you may get something out of it and I'll try one every once and a while. Here is an interesting one that discusses the two Triceratops described in the Hell Creek Formation Triceratops horridus and Triceratops prorsus. The main authors of this paper are pretty well recognized Ceratopsian experts. The two species are basically identical and the only known differences are variations in cranial features like the length of the postorbital and nasal horns. This paper suggest that the long held hypothesis that the differences are just sexual or ontogenetic variations is not valid and is primarily an evolutionary transformation. In the attached figure they placed all known skulls stratigraphically across the entire Hell Creek Formation and found that T. horridus "features" were found only in the lower Hell Creek (L3) while the upper Hell Creek (U3)contained "features" of T. prorsus. The middle Hell Creek (M3) was a transitional zone. This transformation occurred in a relatively short period of time 1-2 million years and it's difficult to argue against sound evidence. The paper again supports the need to have good information on where your specimen comes from. To get a proper species identification it may not only be necessary to know the formation but specific locality. Paper pnas.201313334.pdf FYI ...R. Boessenecker (aka Boesse) was acknowledged in this paper Next we need to settle the debate around Triceratops and Torosaurus .

  9. Hi all, I just purchased a large Triceratops nasal horn. I'm unfamiliar with Trikes fossils though. I believe it's real(which is why I bought it), but it's a pretty expensive buy, so I'd like your opinions on this piece. It comes from Glendive, Montana.
  10. Hey guys, I'm new to the forum and wanted to share a few Dinosaur teeth I have and see what you guys think of them. Thanks for looking!
  11. Hello all, I am new to the forum, and I'd like to show you a work in progress of our young triceratops sculpture. The final product will be a resin wall mount. I hope you'll enjoy it !
  12. I've always wanted to buy a piece of dinosaur skin. I often see hadrosaur skin or Edmontosaurus skin from USA online. These pieces often come in sizes of less than 2" for about 100 USD, and larger pieces 5" plus can go for 1000 USD. I find the price prohibitive. Instead, I am looking to buy a nice solid piece of triceratops frill. I saw some pictures, and was surprised to see the veins and bumps and patterns on them. Are triceratops frill fossils considered dinosaur skin as well?

  16. So, I got a call from a collector about this "little" triceratops rib. Apparently, her cat decided it looked better on the floor than on its display stand! Boy was it in bad shape... On top of it all, the bone was very unstable and just touching it caused pieces to crumble off. So, I gave it the full treatment... 1. Paleo Bond stabilizer on the breaks as an adhesive. 2. A healthy dose of thinned PVA to soak in and stabilize the bone. 3. Magic Sculpt epoxy clay to fill the new cracks 4. A bit of custom acrylic paint to disguise the needed restoration

  20. From Western Digs: One of the most abundant and diverse families of dinosaurs from the Ancient West has a new member among its ranks. Two new specimens of ceratopsid, or horn-faced dinosaur, have been found in separate locations in the U.S. and Canada, and their shared features are so distinctive that paleontologists say they “definitively” represent a species that’s new to science.

  23. The Wyoming Geological Survey in 1930 printed Bulletin 22 titled The Dinosaurs of Wyoming. The title may be a bit misleading. The majority of the bulletin concerns everything... but... Wyoming Dinosaurs. The Triceratops were well known from Converse County, Lance Creek, Wyoming, close to Lusk, and a nice USGS Monograph 49, 1907 titled Ceratopsia is a classic on this area. Some horn tips were found in the Denver, Colorado area before many people were familiar with them and thought they were from fossil Bison. Como Bluffs and Bone Cabin are also a couple of well known Jurassic dinosaur quarried areas of Wyoming in Carbon and Albany Counties, Wyoming. The bulletin is a pretty good, written for the curious and not for the academic. The part that no body understands is that Dinosaurs were still popular and museums wanted one or more for themselves. I scanned the last page out of the paper, page 114 with sales prices of some dinosaurs. Want to learn more about Wyoming's Dinosaurs?

  24. 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
