  1. Tyrannosaurus rex or nano femur??

    Hi there! I recently purchased this online, could you please help identify this? the seller was unsure if it was a juvenile trex or a nano. It was found in Hell creek dawson County east of Glendive Montana Thank you :)
  2. I was out yesterday doing a final hunt before the snow sets in here in Montana on the Judith River formation and found this claw along with this vertebra, no other bones around so possibly from the same animal. I have found theropod claws that are much smaller and this one is huge when compared. I searched for the tip but sadly couldn't find it. I assume because of the size it would be a tyrannosauroid but not certain. Can it be determined to be a toe claw or hand claw? Is the vertebra identifiable? @patrickhudson
  3. I found these for sale. They look fake, painted teeth. What do you think?
  4. I found this fossil online. The toe claw is 32.5 cm long. Found in Gobi Desert, Mongolia
  5. Stan the T. rex just sold for 27.5 million!

    Hi all, I just read the disturbing news that Tyrannosaurus rex Stan has been sold at auction yesterday. I must say I was very surprised, as I always thought Stan was on public display at the Black Hills Institute. I then read BHI was ordered by court order to put the dinosaur up for sale. I couldn't find any details on this, however. Anybody here know more about it?
  6. Sales just concluded a min ago. I definitely wasn't expecting it to reach this insanely high amount. No word yet AFAIK on whether he's going to a private collection or museum Is this the highest a dinosaur has ever been sold for? I wonder what precedence it'd set for fossils and paleontology moving forward On the pro side, it'd encourage more folks to go out there looking for fossils and possibly finding rare and important finds. On the con, more fossils might be priced out of the reach of museums
  7. I took a trip out to the scollard formation in Alberta the other day for the first time. I've been hunting in Alberta for years now, but only recently decided to try and branch out from our old hunting grounds. I was unaware that there were T-Rex fossils in our province, but I read through a few old posts on this forum about some massive teeth being pulled out of Alberta so I decided it was worth a shot. I told my dad about it and we decided to drive out on his birthday. I ended up finding a few broken T-Rex teeth, one would have been well over 3 inches. My dad easily had the find of the day with this intact tooth. Probably the best birthday present one could recieve. We will definitely be going back soon, but I want to educate myself on the scollard more before we go again. I was planning to be able to identify the whitemud, battle formation, and kneehills tuff, but failed in practice. If anybody here has explored the scollard in the past, I'd love to get some pointers on navigating, as you can only run up and down the hoodoos so many times before you're done for the day.
  8. A response to Woodward et. al 2020's refutation of Nanotyrannus. Argues that specimens BMRP 2002.4.1 and BMRP 2006.4.4 fall outside the growth curve of Tyrannosaurus. https://advances.sciencemag.org/content/6/1/eaax6250/tab-e-letters
  9. Stan the T. rex put up for auction

    I hope I'm not breaking any TFF rules by discussing fossil sales outside the sales forum. Does anyone know what is happening with Stan the T. rex? It looks like he is being put up for auction. Why did they suddenly decide to sell him? https://www.christies.com/features/The-life-of-Stan-a-T-rex-excavated-in-1992-10872-7.aspx?sc_lang=en&PID=en_hp_carousel_1
  10. Hello i am considering purchasing this T-rex tooth. The seller claims that their are no repairs with nice enamel and good serrations. with the only damage on the tooth mentioned being on the inside edge. My questions are simple is this really a tyrannosaurus rex tooth and is there any sign or repaired damage or anything that would indicate the tooth is fake etc. Information about the tooth: Age: 65 Million Years / Carter County, Montana Hell Creek Formation / Size: 2 inches long Below are the images they have provided.
  11. Hi, I have now corrected my previous post to avoid breaking the rules. I saw this recently and it actually seems too good to be true. I suspect that it may be false, as the stone that contains it does not look very natural in color, although the skeleton looks quite good. if you could comment on that it would be great.
  12. A couple of the bigger Tyrannosaurus teeth I found this summer in Montana Judith River formation. I found this 3" tyrannosaurus tooth in about 400 pieces and was able to piece about 80% of it together over about 3 weeks and 30 hours, the other one is almost as big but was only in about 30 pieces and is still a nice brown color. I am no professional and did not want to pay thousands to have someone do it for me. I would like to get it filled in and solid, is there some putty or epoxy used to fill it in and hold it all together? Also had some other smaller Hadrosaur teeth I believe and maybe a croc tooth but not certain. can anyone ID those?
  13. Hello, I was doing a study on the T. rex and Nanotyrannus teeth specimens I had, and I wanted to compare them against a list of known T. rex teeth with measurement. The paper: Dental Morphology and Variation in Theropod Dinosaurs: Implications for the Taxonomic Identification of Isolated Teeth (JOSHUA B. SMITH, DAVID R. VANN, AND PETER DODSON) contains a list of 115 T. rex teeth. To make it easier to compare and read the data, I combined the measurements into a single chart, added colors and lines for ease of reading, and added the size and names of the T. rex used in the study Feel free to refer to the below chart for T. rex teeth measurements. I had to split the chart into 2 due to size limitations, but if you want the full-sized PDF version (25 MB), please message me so I can send it to you by email. If you have any suggestions to improve readability, or have your own data to add, go ahead and post it here! I will be posting pics and measurements of my various T. rex and Nanotyrannus teeth here @Troodon
  14. Largest theropods

    We all know that spinosaurus is most possible to be the largest theropod. Spinosaurus was not very tall (in the hip) but it probably was heavier and longest that tyrannosaurus, giga and carcha. But, what is the second biggest theropod ever? (only carnivorous, not herbivorous like deinocheirus). I think, that tyrannosaurus rex is the second biggest theropod ever. Giganotosaurus and carcharodontosaurus was longest that t. rex, but not tallest and heavier. Giraffe is taller that elephant, but elephant is the biggest terrestrial mammal. Argentinosaurus, supersaurus, patagotitan, diplodocus, was longest that blue whale, but blue whale is the biggest animal ever.
  15. T-Rex Tooth?

    I found what looks like a couple t-rex teeth, there are 4 good size pieces and about 20 smaller pieces. Looks like a complete 2.5" tooth once I piece it together, maybe longer and another partial tooth. Is it T-rex? also what is the best way to glue the pieces together? Is it worth paying someone that knows what they are doing? Also would it be worth digging into that area and see if there are more?
  16. Tyrannosaurus rex Tooth

  17. Mesozoic soft tissue!.......?

    Ok, I just came across articles about soft tissue remains, apparently including some form of degraded blood, in a mosasaur. That of course, brings up the T-Rex soft tissue found, to me. I seem to understand what I keep reading, but I can’t help it, again I find myself thinking...Really? C’mon, REALLY??? Am I just misinterpreting the whole thing, or is there actually real, true, gen-u-ine unfossilized/in mineralized, preserved soft tissues and blood remains in these 70ish million year old “fully” umineralized animals? ...............HOW?????????????? How, when the rest of the animal, soft AND hard tissue has dissolved away so long ago, can any soft tissue remain? How do only small areas of the tissue remain? If conditions are so, that areas of soft tissue/blood residue remain, how do just small patches remain, but the parts immediately surrounding the patches have long since dissolved away? Conditions inside an intact bone, or intact stomach cavity, should be stable, shouldnt they? Not different from one centimeter to the next, especially so different that one spot dissolved dozens of millions of years ago, and the spot touching that one is still just sitting there, relatively preserved?
  18. Cretaceous dinosaur toe bones

    I have 8 Cretaceous dinosaur toe bones that I got from Judith river Montana. I was told some were Tyrannosaur and some were struthiomimus. I cannot tell if that is true or not and need your guys help. #1 #4. 1 #3. #2. #7 #6. #5. #8.
  19. I just came across this. According to seller it belongs to subadult T-Rex, found completely intact. I would like to know if it's real or fake. Thanks.
  20. Rex or nano tooth?

    Picked this up off the auction sight. Hell creek tooth out of Powder river county Montana. Not expecting a perfect ID. It's small and I know that makes em hard to ID. This guy is just shy of an inch and heavy for his size. I have meg teeth of comparable size that weigh nothing compared to this specimen. It does have some remaining serrations but not much. Anyway, regardless of nano or rex status I thought it was an interesting tooth.
  21. Not sure if this is the correct place for this, but looking to see if I could get some verification (Is it real? Good quality?) etc as I’m fairly new to collecting.
  22. I recently came across the young earth theory (the theory that earth is 10.000 years old and dinosaurs coexisted with humans and traveled with Noah and his ark) and of course i thought it was unfeasible but one common argument they keep having is why are we finding soft tissues, proteins and other biochemicals in fossils like triceratops, t-rex and other dinosaur bones of course that doesn't mean DNA BUT they shouldn't have been preserved because such biochemicals don't get preserved after so much time. Another one is that some old fossils are still close to the surface when they should be buried really deep. So what are your thoughts on these arguments, in my opinion this theory is ridiculous but i'd love to learn the answers. Thanks (PS sorry for asking that many questions these days its just that im new to the forum and have lots of questions)
  23. After the Velociraptor skull, I finally finished another very long project: the baby T. rex skull designed by Inhuman Species, a 3D printed museum quality fossil replica of a 2-3 years old Tyrannosaurus rex. I really love this project and I made a video of the making from the 3D printing to the painting - I hope you like it. If you're wondering, I 3D printed the skull with the Alfawise U30 in PLA plastic; please watch the video and turn on subtitles to learn more about the tools and the making processes. If your're addicted or interested in 3D printing, you can't miss those topics:
  24. What do you guys think about nanotyrannus? I thought it is a juvie tyrannosaurus but it's hands were bigger
