  1. My Collection

    New to collecting and this site, thought I’d debut my small collection in my first post. Any comments or tips would be appreciated.
  2. Tyrannosaurid Indet Confirmation

    Hello all, Recently acquired 2 teeth, found and sold together, that I would love some insight and second opinions on. Both teeth are described as Tyrannosaurid Indet, from the Judith River Formation. The seller described that he purchased them both together from the harvester, but due to the fact he was not the original collector, the information is isolated to the above information. Smaller tooth is 15/16" long, dark chocolate color, and 1/4" wide. Serrations are present on front and rear edges, with serrations starting midway on the front edge. Larger tooth is missing the front edge, appears sheared. Length is 1 1/8", width 5/16". Serrations present cleanly on rear edge, but again completely sheared from front edge. Color also deeper chocolate brown, but more horizontal banding. Can obtain more detailed and specific measurements of other needed dimensions if needed. Mainly I'm looking for a confirmation of Tyrannosaurid Indet distinguished from other theropods in the area at the time, as I have little experience positively IDing smaller tyrannosaurid material. I've actively worked on distinguishing Carcharodontosaur teeth from Rugops in the field in Morocco, but this is out of my field. All help is greatly appreciated! Will post more pictures in comments
  3. Tyrannosaur Vertebra?

    Just looking for a little help identifying a hell creek vertebra. The individual I purchased it from said it was likely a Tyrannosaur cervical vertebra (probably rex rather than a nano vertebra due to its size). Based on its shape and the fact it's very light, I'm fairly confident their identification is correct. Any help would be much appreciated
  4. Russian tyrannosaur tooth , Kileskus?

    Hi! I´m not very familiar with Russian dinosaur teeth, But I saw this tooth for sale and its labeled as Kileskus from Itat formation Russia. Is it possible that it is the correct id or could it be something else? The photos isnt very good though
  5. Tyrannosaur, Dromaeosaur, Other?

    Hello fossil enthusiasts! To identify this fossil, I'd love some help. My uncle had it, and now that he is passed, it was sent to me. He did not leave much information on it, and now we are all curious. He had a note with it that said "W. US LATE CRETACEOUS, DROM / TYRAN". I did a lot of research. It does look like the tooth belonged to one of those animals, but I am having difficulty figuring out which one. The lack of formation does not help. Could anyone here be able to weigh in on whether it came from a dromaeosaur or tyrannosaur? Or maybe some other dinosaur? His and my guess could be way off. I've read a lot of @Troodon posts so I could figure it out (without success), and would love for him or her to weigh in. Of course, all are welcome. Thank you!
  6. I was originally going to ask about the id of this bone, but i figured it is much more important to ask about any possible restorations done that aren't in the description. This is a 24cm toe phalange from an undescribed Tyrannosaur (from the Ajuga Formation). The seller has stated that the bone was found in many pieces that were put back together (it is slightly compressed) and had some crack fills (and a tiny bit of stain), but nothing else. May i ask for opinions, my main concern is whether it could be a composite but i am mostly unaware of the type of preservation found in this formation. Thanks.
  7. Tyrannosaurid Tooth Tip

    From the album Judith River fm. Fossil Finds

    Here we have the tooth tip from a Tyrannosaurid I found at a microsite in Northern MT. Teeth, especially fragmentary ones like these are nearly impossible to identify accurately as the differences between those of Gorgosaurus and Daspletosaurus (the two species of tyrannosaur from the JRF) are difficult to distinguish.
  8. Strange juvenile gorgosaurus tooth

    What type of tyrannosaur tooth is this it’s 75 million years old and is from the Judith River formation it’s from a juvenile and is 2cm?
  9. T-rex Teeth Verification

    For context, I have received these photos from the shop that I have done business with previously. I want to ensure that these are rex teeth and not another genus. I acknowledge that these pictures do not show the base of the teeth which seems to be the tell tale differentiation, in addition to measurements of scale and so on. Therefore, I just would like to see the opinions of those on the forum with the pictures provided, I wish I was able to take more appropriate photos of the specimens. Tooth #1 strikes me as a likely rex candidate simply because of the robustness, #2 I'm not so sure. Not an expert on theropod teeth by any means. Thank you all! (The 98 million year old age is a typo, they have a more expensive tooth with the appropriate age of 68 million years)
  10. Tyrannosaur tooth

    Hello would this be a rex or nano tooth its form hell creek formation ?
  11. T. rex ancestor had an S-shaped brain, fossil reveals

  12. I need help to identify these fossils

    Okay, so I have a couple of fossils in my collection, in which I'd like some more opinions on. First, I bought this un-identified dinosaur chevron bone. It is from the Kem Kem beds, Morocco.
  13. This report is a bit late, but better late than never! During late July through to mid August 2018 i was on a research trip to study a new Canadian dinosaur footprint site for my Masters degree project. I am based in Australia, and this was the first time i had been to Canada! So of course i had to make the most of it and pay a visit to the world renowned Dinosaur Provincial Park in southern Alberta, arguably the richest site in the world for dinosaur fossils. The park is the best exposure of the Dinosaur Park Formation (which it is now named after), which dates to about 76.5 million years ago during the mid-Campanian. I had long read about this location and watched it on documentaries for so many years growing up as a kid. Finally being there in person was very surreal! I was quite lucky and managed to go on a long, extended walk through the park with one of the guides for about 6 hours in total. In this relatively short amount of time i observed so many amazing fossils. I must have been completely desensitised within the first 30 minutes! It really is incredible how much fossil material there is lying all over the park. In Australia, whole scientific papers are written about isolated or fragmentary dinosaur bones, yet here they were just lying everywhere! The pictures really speak for themselves. As said, all of these fossils were observed in the field during a single days visit to the park. As this is a World Heritage site, nothing was taken, all finds were put straight back onto the ground after i took these photos. It's a VERY hard thing to do, but rules are rules. The only thing that was removed from the park on my trip was my best find of the day... a near-perfect 5.3 cm tyrannosaur tooth from Gorgosaurus!!!! This find was too special to leave behind, so the park tour guide GPS marked the location and brought it back for display, likely at the visitor centre or as a demonstration piece for their guided tours. To say that i have found a tyrannosaur tooth is a great honour! You may remember it from the July 2018 VFOTM poll. Without further ado, here are the pics! It is going to take multiple posts to fit them all in, so scroll all the way down to see them all! Various dinosaur vertebrae. Everything from hadrosaurs (duck billed dinosaurs) and ceratopsians (horned dinosaurs) to theropods (two legged meat eaters) and ankylosaurs (armoured dinosaurs). These were so common! I would probably pick a new one up every 5 minutes or so. Ankylosaur tooth

  16. Hello whats are the possibility of getting Lythronax, Teratophoneus, Appalachiosaurus and Dryptosaurus tooth fossils ?
  17. Ok, so I know these are kinda small, but hopefully it's good enough to tell. The tyrannosaur fossil was originally compacted, so keep that in mind if there's anything that would be attributed to that. Pic 1:unidentified tyrannosaur 2:stegosaurus 3&4:allosaurus (I know the allo metacarpal may be hard to destinguish, so I'm not expecting anything concrete on that one)
  18. Tyrannosaur ID

    I found this tooth on an auction site. Seller labeled it "Nanosaurus," saying it's a raptor tooth from the hell creek. I'm pretty confident his ID is incorrect, and this is Infact a Nanotyrannus tooth but I'm not sure. Tyrannosaurus is also a possibility. @Troodon any thoughts?
  19. Organizing Collection/ ID Help

    Organizing my collection has been the tedious, but also a really fun process. I’ll probably continually posting here for assistance. When I’m feeling a little more confident about my ID’s, I’ll post it in the members collection section to share. I still have some fossils to prep, piece together, display, label, etc. and really fortunate that I have all of you helping constantly; it really speeds up the process. In another year’s time, I’ll be much more educated/ well rounded Some of my fossils are rookie purchases, so I’m just trying to make the best of it. The issue is , I think they’re pretty cool, but not sure if they are worth displaying given that they are bone fragments. I was thinking maybe in a riker...also the issue of labeling...Below are three separate purchases. Group 1: The seller sold these in fragments. Several of these pieces I glued back together neatly with Paleo bond. The seller must’ve used some kind of thick glue originally because there are some marks, but it’s no big deal... anyway these were advertised as Albertosaurus bones... when I asked the seller why he labeled it as such, he said because it’s very probable? I asked him for a coa, and when I received it, it only said Tyannosaur bones... so I’m going to leave it at that...because it’s indeterminable. Even back then I knew Coa’s were pointless, but I always like asking for one, because I feel like it could possibly put a little pressure on the seller to be a somewhat more honest like it did in this case...however in most cases sellers don’t care: Tyrannosaur bone fragments: Judith River Formation, Northern Montana The other small miscellaneous pieces I don’t think can be glued back...no fit or match, just associated bones...What would you label the fossil as, and are they worth displaying?
  20. Thoughts on this Tyrannosaur tooth for sale from the Aguja Formation of Texas. 2" Seller indicates some resto has been done to the tip to make it complete.
  21. Tarbosaurus Tooth?

    Saw this tooth online recently, it already sold but it was listed as a Tarbosaurus Tooth but it reminds me more of a carcharodontosaurus tooth but then again I am unsure nor familiar with tarbosaurus teeth, what do you guys think? I have included all photos in the listing.
  22. The Utah Natural History museum held their annual DinoFest this weekend so I was able to get some great pictures of the new skeleton of Teratophoneus, 80% complete. The skull Here are some close ups of Teratophoneus teeth Now for the foot claws!
  23. Here's my Two Medicine formation collection from Montana. It's all Daspletosaurus besides one Saurornitholestes tooth. I'm hoping to get specimens of some of the Two Medicine herbivores in the future.

  24. My T-Rex and Nanotyrannus teeth

    These are my T-Rex and Nanotyrannus teeth. I acquired most of them pretty recently. They are some of my most prized dinosaur fossils. I'll post my T-Rex/Nano bones soon as well.
