  1. Triceratops claw?

    Hi, Is this a claw from a Triceratops? it is from the Hell Creek Formation and is slightly over 2 inches in length.
  2. I feel silly posting a $20 tooth for opinions, but I guess lately it seems like I should be careful on all things fossil. Here's a Trike tooth that I think is an alright starter. The crown seems to have a little less than average wear, and there's part of a root showing, though it's a browner color than the rest of the tooth. Not sure if that matters or not, but I know I've seen that mentioned before in cases of other fossils. A nice tooth, or a bad trap? Thanks everyone!
  3. I have a random fossil/dinosaur question. Has it been properly researched and somewhat/ mostly proven whether or not Triceratops did in fact exist I have read multiple articles ( on the internet and not peer reviwed) that have stated it is thought that the Triceratops and Torosaurus are one in the same They have even gone on to say that because nobody has yet to discover any juvenile Torosaurus fossil pieces,skulls, or skeletons that Triceratops could possibly be young Torosaurus, and as they matured their frills changed shape much like some anima look s coloring changes during maturation. What are people's thoughts? I just ask because I see a lot of teeth labeled Triceratops and so far none labeled Torosaurus.
  4. Triceratops shield piece?

    I have this little chunk of trike bone here. I got it a while back and it was labeled as nothing more than a trike bone. I took some time and I noticed something strange. When I look at the bone from one side I see two halves, each with a different bone density. One of my pictures shows this. My suspicion is that the denser side of this bone is the external side of a triceratops head shield piece. The side that is more porous is the internal side of the shield. Are my suspicions correct?
  5. Found this enigmatic piece on one of my digs in Wyoming. Found on a ranch in the Lance Creek Formation (Maastrichtian age). Not sure if anything can be said about it other than that it is a bone fragment, but maybe someone knows more than I do. Seems too big/thick to be turtle, but potentially possible. Seems like it could be a worn spike or epoccipital of some sort? (A lot of triceratops specimens were found in the area. Hopefully I can get a bit better of handle on what this is, Thanks for the help!
  6. Triceratops horridus tooth

    Ladies and Gents, Another I.D. question for you guys. I have an I.D card with this one that claims that this is a triceratops horridus tooth with Edmontosaurus bones. Thanks
  7. Dinosaur Postures

    After the satisfying outcome of my sloth-experiment (changing geoworld megatherium to Thalassocnus) I took another look at some older dinosaur models. Sauropoda- Giraffatitan: "Edutoys Brachiosaurus", added teeth and one cervical vertebra to give him a more erect pose, Changed cervical ribs from medial "monorib". changed leg pose. Thyreophora- Stegosaurus: Glencoe models , changed tail and thagomizer to more modern pose Ceratopsia- Triceratops: Kaiyodo "Wild rush" gave him a treetrunk to look over. Ornithopoda- Parasaurolophus: Geoworld, drilled out intercostal plastik. painted it. Theropoda- Spinosaurus: had it 3d printed. I wonder if I should give it a swimming pose, what do you think?
  8. Horned dinosaurs 'looking for love'

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-43472777 Horned dinosaurs 'looking for love' Triceratops may have had horns to attract mates "We see that in peacocks too, with their tail feathers."
  9. theropodaexpeditions.com

    I found this website that has some fantastic photos of dinosaur bones. Definitely worth a look. Great for reference. http://www.theropodaexpeditions.com/ Some examples
  10. Hello, these teeth were sold to me as a mix of Triceratops and hadrosaur spitter teeth from Hell Creek Formation of Montana. Thanks to @Troodon, I now know these kinda teeth are ceratopsian spitter. Is there any way to tell if they belong to Triceratops, or any of ceratopsians such as Leptoceratops? Also, teeth 4 and 5 are unusually shiny. At the right angle, parts of them almost seem to be bronze. Are they pyritized? If so, is this common for Hell Creek teeth? Thank you for your time. Teeth 4 Teeth 5
  11. Hi all, I have a group of dinosaur teeth that needs identifying. They are either triceratops or hadrosaur teeth. They come from Hell Creek Formation of Powder County, Montana. All the teeth are roughly 1.5 cm tall 1) I am guessing hadrosaur 2) I am guessing triceratops 3) I am guessing triceratops 4, 5, 6) These 3 are extremely similar. I can't tell what they are.
  12. In April Forum member @Sagebrush Steve posted an account in the "Fossil Prep" section detailing construction of display stands for some of his collection. He employed a slightly different approach and interested readers would be well served to view that post as well as this one. I do believe that the use of attractive display techniques can enhance the "decorator" value of fossils as well as allowing them to be viewed in a manner far better than resting on a shelf. A short while ago I posted a prep series on a pair of Halisaurus jaw sections. That post concluded with discussion of the display stands employed. Rustic bases made from salvaged wild cherry wood were the support for brass rods bent to hold the pieces. Here is one of those pieces. That project led to the idea mounting other fossils in a similar style. To this end I acquired a box of assorted blanks from an exotic woods dealer. I believe those slabs were intended for turning on a lathe to produce small bowls. I chose them for use as stable, heavy bases. The natural beauty of the various wood was also a factor. Here are some of the blanks. the are partially dipped on wax to seal them for storage. They are: Bubinga, Purpleheart and Yellowheart. Here is an assortment of wood that has been subjected to an orbital sander in preparation for finishing. They are: Ambrosia Maple, Canarywood, Bocote and Jatoba Here is a block of African Mahogany, that will serve as a base for the first stand. Shellac, mixed from flakes and denatured alcohol is applied to the unstained wood. A cloth dauber is utilized for application. Holes for mounting the brass rods have been pre-drilled in designated spots. Here is the project prior to assembly. The blue strand of flexible, electrical wire was used to form the approximate desired shape needed for the brass rod configurations. In that manner a measure could be established for the placement of bends. A simple jig was used to make the bends. It is, however, more difficult than one would imagine. Well, at least is was for snolly. Visible are the fossil specimens to be mounted. Here are a couple views of the finished project. This was a fun experience and the other blanks will be utilized to mount other medium sized specimens. Triceratops sp partial chevrons Hell Creek Formation Powder River Co, Montana
  13. Triceratops Jaw Section

    Hey TFF, I found this Triceratops fossil jaw section online and would really like to purchase it. Though, it looks like it had been found in many pieces and prepared okay. I think it would look great in my fossil collection which are mainly dinosaur material, but was wondering if it was worth purchasing because of its condition. What do you guys think? Thanks for your replies!

  15. Hi all, wondering if I could get your opinion on this frill piece? many thanks in advance!
  16. Is this a Triceratops frill section?

    Hi guys, Is this a real Triceratops frill section? I am not really sure the texture on both of the sides are from blood vessels.. So i like your opinions.
  17. Dinosaur bone- Skull fragment?

    Found this in Glendive, Montana (hell creek). The ranch is best known for triceratops and edmontosaurus. The back of it looks concave, almost like a socket, but the front appears naturally rounded, not like a fragment of a long bone. I'm not even sure whether this is a complete bone or a fragment off something larger. The sides have 2 symmetrical curves that look a little like partial eye or nose sockets (picture 2). Perhaps this is a piece of triceratops frill or a juvenile nose horn? It reminds me of a kneecap, but I think I remember reading nonavian dinosaurs lacked kneecaps. The ranch owners had no idea, said it reminded them of a toebone. I'm really curious what you guys make of this one.
  18. Large dinosaur bone- femur? radius?

    Found this in Glendive, Hell Creek formation. The ranch most commonly produces triceratops and hadrosaur, but when I looked at skeletons in a museum I couldn't seem to find a match. The first picture shows what appears to be a ball (part of a socket?) on the top back end of the bone. Any idea? Sorry the pictures aren't very descriptive- I'm a college kid and had to leave the bone at home. I didn't have the time to prep it:(
  19. Black Hills Institute Museum

    So I went to the Black Hills Insitute and I made a lot of photos, so I thought I'd share. The Black Hills Institute museum in Hill City is pretty small, it's just one hall. But this one hall is absolutely packed with stuff. This is also the home of the T. rex Stan. Many of the skeletons are casts, but there are plenty of real fossils here as well. The skeleton of Stan. This is the real skeleton and the real skull is placed beside it in the corner. But I didn't even notice that at the time. Skull of Torosaurus. Notice the holes in the frill. Triceratops doesn't have these holes in it's frill. Tylosaurus proriger. Another real specimen. Two Allosaurus skeletons. An Ornithomimid as well as Stan, the Senckenberg Edmontosaurus mummy and Tarbosaurus skull in the background. Skeleton of Albertosaurus, skull of Albertosaurus on the left and skull of Gorgosaurus on the right. A second T. rex skeleton. And a lineup of T. rex skulls in the background. Thescelosaurus and Pachycephalosaurus. Juvenile Edmontosaurus skeleton below the second T. rex skeleton. Cast of the Triceratops Raymond. Crestless Pteranodon on the left as well as a Nyctosaurus? arm/wing at the bottom. Dromaeosaurus in the middle between the legs of the Triceratops and a primitive Sirenian with legs on the right. Bambiraptor and Archaeopteryx skeletons. Foot and skull of Deinonychus and Herrerasaurus, Dromaeosaurus and Eoraptor skulls at the bottom. T. rex arm (cast of Sue) and brian endocast left. Nanotyrannus skull on the right. Mongolian Dinosaurs. Saichania and Saurolophus skulls at the top. Velociraptor skull and oviraptorid partial skeletons below that. Prenocephale, Oviraptor, Archaeornithimimus and Alioramus at the bottom. Tethyshadros top left, and Psittacosaurus nest, and skeletons on the bottom left. Brontosaurus leg in the middle and baby Apatosaurus on the right. Velociraptor and Protoceratops fighting on the far right. Edaphosaurus skeleton. And this is just a small selection of the photos I took. There's just so much stuff here and I only spent a few hours here. The gift shop is also worth a vist btw. I bought a rather nice replica of a tooth from Stan and a Thescelosaurus phalange.
  20. Triceratops frill?

    Hi all, i win auction on this, can it be a part of Triceratops frill from Hell Creek? I hope yes but i am not sure. I hope you can help me. Thank you for that
  21. Leptoceratops or Triceratops?

    I can't really tell if this had a single or double root. Cool shed tooth either way. The seller said it's from the Lance Formation, near Newcastle, Wyoming.
  22. I purchased it from eBay. It's from the Lance Formation of Eastern, WY. The exterior surface of the bone is pitted and has grooves just like a Triceratops brow horn. However, all of the Triceratops horns I have seen are conical, meaning they are round in cross section which this fossil is not. The cross section looks more triangular or diamond-like. This fossil has no compression or cracks in it which leads me to believe that the true cross section is more triangular or diamond-like than round in shape. The only other horns/spikes that would have surface bone texture like this and have that shape would be a large Ankylosaur side/shoulder spike. The fossil is partial so I cannot make a 100% definite ID either way so it is possibly a strangely shaped Triceratops brow horn section or a partial Ankylosaur side spike.
  23. Indianapolis Children's Museum

    Hello, I was stopping through Indianapolis and gave their children's museum a try. It was surprisingly enjoyable! The museum covered topics from agriculture to racing to dinosaurs! These photos are from the dinosaur section. I followed the signs to the Dinosphere. I walked through the entrance and down the ramp. At the end of the ramp was a Sarcosuchus cast (no picture sorry). Following the path I emerged into a huge planetarium like structure filled with dinosaurs.
