  1. Triceratops spit tooth

    From the album Dinosaurs

    This is a fragment of a very small Triceratops spit tooth. Note some of the bone is still attached.
  2. Triceratops jawbone section

    From the album Dinosaurs

    This is a Triceratops jaw section from Hell Creek.
  3. Mystery dinosaur Horn

    Here's another Cretaceous western fossil that needs an ID. Its either from Hell Creek or Lance Creek (will have to check my records again), and I initially purchased it as a young triceratops nasal horn. After looking at it some more, I'm wondering if it might be an ankylosaur spike, or maybe something else. Thoughts?
  4. A new, startling revelation you may find interesting: https://canadianmuseumofnature.wordpress.com/2018/12/12/triceratops-skull/ The skin impression found on a Triceratops skull found by Charles Sternberg in Saskatchewan, Canada, is quite a surprising discovery, potentially giving people an idea of what the skin of Triceratops looked like, because no other Triceratops specimen has skin impressions preserved. The Tyrannosaurus rex skin impression found last year isn't too far from how T. rex is depicted in children's movies, and the newly discovered Triceratops skin impression may or may not be close to how kids illustrate Triceratops, while giving clues to what ceratopsid skin looked like.
  5. On Sunday I took a trip to the Natural History Museum in London. I queued up before it opened at 10am and even before then there was a long queue. I have not visited this museum since I was a child and spent an entire day there (10am to 4.30pm - a long time). I was surprised as it is a lot bigger than I remembered and there was so much to see. This place has the most wonderful things and is an incredible place to learn. The museum showcases a Baryonyx, Sophie the Stegosaurus (the world's most complete Stegosaurus) and more! The moving Trex and Deinonychus are also really realistic in the way they move. If you like your dinosaur teeth, the Megalosaurus and Daspletosaurus teeth are out of this world! There is something for everyone in this museum and I would highly recommend that you visit here if you have not already! A lot of the dinosaur specimens are casts taken from other museums but they are still cool to look at. I had taken the photos on my SLR and due to the size of the photos I had to reduce the quality of them to be able to post on the forum which is unfortunate but it's the only way otherwise the photos would take a really long time to load. There are more non-dinosaur related photos that I will be posting at some point later on but may take me some time to pick out. Enjoy the photos from this section of the museum! Blue Zone Dinosaurs (has a mix of some photos of crocs too)
  6. Triceratops ulna

    Hello! This is my latest project, it’s a triceratops ulna pilled from Wyoming. Preservation isn’t the greatest but still a fun one!
  7. These triceratops teeth looked polished, and there is two white dots on the bigger one that I think is a burn from preparing the tooth. It would be great help if someone could tell me if they are real or fake. Thanks so much!
  8. What are these

    So this is at Texas Tarrant County near a large pond. Not sure if the tooth is crocodile, fish, marine dinosaur or small mammel. The rock with circles on it I'm guessing is an imprint of a shell. And the other one I think is bone in Rock not sure if it's like a tooth if so I guess bovine or triceratops but I'm not sure if it's a recent bone or a bone from the dinosaur era (or if it's a bone at all). Also a general question of how do you know if something is a modern bone or dinosaur bone, I found some level surface and you can see the face of the bone, the rest is in the ground and it's near a pond. If anyone has answers to these questions that will be great. Excuse my lack of knowledge in these areas I'm new and I've just started with no current knowledge in dinosaurs.
  9. Triceratops skull and brain case

    From the album Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    Another view showing an area of what I do not know. I'm guessing it involves nerve fibers/channels.
  10. Triceratops skull and brain case

    From the album Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    Another view showing more channels/cross sections of blood flow(the small solid dark gray areas), and nerve channels. I'm not entirely sure what the large dark areas are, although I believe it to be related to blood flow as well.
  11. Triceratops skull with brain case

    From the album Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    Another view showing the spongy internal bone growth
  12. Triceratops skull and brain case

    From the album Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    2 pieces of a triceratops skull with brain case impression. Blood vessels, veins, and arteries visible, as well as nerve channels. I have to contact in order to get the fossil information again.
  13. Triceratops frill fragment

    From the album Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    Fragment of a triceratops frill. Blood vessel channels and holes easily visible. Sadly this is an early fossil of mine, and until fairly recently I did not record any information, I just kept if it was sent along with the fossil.
  14. 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.
  15. 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!
  16. 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.
  17. 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?
  18. 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!
  19. 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
  20. 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?
  21. 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."
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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.
  25. 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
