  1. Hey guys, I am researching about velociraptor and protoceratops relationships in the bayan mandahu formation. basically I have to talk about these two in the bayan mandahu but I was thinking to approach the question in a different way. Is there anything else around the time that could these tooth marks belong to on the protoceratops? or perhaps is there any other species kicking around with similar bone structure to the protoceratops?
  2. New skeleton helps define differences between North American and Asian Dromeosaurids. https://m.phys.org/news/2019-10-paleontologists-saurornitholestes-langstoni-specimen.html
  3. As far as I can tell, the evidence for pack hunting among Deinonychus hasn't changed; nor has any evidence come to light that contradicts it. The only argument I can find is that modern archosaurs don't pack hunt. But Harris hawks do, I don't know where that argument even comes from.
  4. So not too long ago, I acquired a Protoceratops tooth from a German fossil gallery. And I have been looking for more fossils of the species for comparison both in price-range and rarity, but cannot seem to find any other protoceratops fossils anywhere. Does anyone know if these teeth are ever sold online? And have I perhaps made a heck of a buy? I'm not sure if the fossils from the Gobi Desert are rare or just hard to come by, unless you live in Asia. Any information would be appreciated, thanks! (Will put up some pictures of the tooth when I get home later)
  5. I am currently working on a diorama/sculpture featuring a Pinacosaurus, some Protoceratops, and maybe a Velociraptor or alvarezsaur. From what I understand from the papers I have read, the Djadokhta formation was a semi-arid to arid biome, but I can't find any information on what kind of vegetation would have been present at that time. Does anyone have any insight on what kind of plant life you would expect to see in a Cretaceous desert? Thanks in advance. Progress pics coming soon.
  6. I found this lovely velociraptorine claw while searching my Wealden bone bed collection. I enjoyed taking these photos, they are some of the most striking images I have taken of a fossil I think.
  7. Hello everyone. I saw this fossil on an auction site and labeled as a velociraptor claw from Argentina but I heard that velociraptor is incredibly rare. Does anyone have any opinions on this and is it a real velociraptor claw or some other dromeosaurid? In my opinion it looks more like a tooth. Thanks.
  8. I finally completed the reorder of my collection of fossils and minerals. It is a wooden hexagonal display cabinet of several wood/glass shelf; in the pictures attached I only show some of them. I 3D printed more than 20 custom drawer compartments for the smallest specimens. I decided to go for a modular design, so I can adapt every compartment to the specimen. As printing material, I used a "wood PLA" filament 3D printed with 1 mm nozzle on the Alfawise U20 3D printer. I finally added a strip LED inside the cabinet door and powered it via a USB power-bank - so it is fully wireless. In this picture you can see some of my recent purchases: Two Sinosauridae indet. teeth from Kem Kem One Acheroraptor tooth from Hell Creek formation, Powder River Co., Montana Some Mosasaurus teeth from Kem Kem One Pterosaurs tooth from Kem Kem A piece of Rhinocerontidae indet. jaw from South Dakota Some ammonites, shark teeth, a Flexicalymene ouzregui, a couple of echinoids (I found the white one in a brick!); the Velociraptor skull is 3D printed as well. This is the other side. The big sand echinoid was also found by me in a brick! On the right there's a nice fossil coral: I never seen something similar, please let me know if you know it's name. Three fossil fishes and a nice ammonites cluster with some quartz in the background. At the end, some minerals... Now I only have to finish the cataloging of all specimen. I already finished with fossils, now I have to start with minerals - it will be very looong! What do you think? Do you like it? Ciao!
  9. I'm 3D printing this Velociraptor's skull - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2736627 Details are very realistic, but I didn't found any real Raptor's skull image to compare. Internet is full of replicas... Anyway, if you're going to 3D print it, consider that it is a very pain. It is badly split, and it is not very easy to 3D print: more than half of the pegs will break and some of the pieces have mesh issues. Also, I suggest to print teeth flat on the 3D printing bed, and not as the original STL. I will update the post with new images as I glue and paint it. Regards, Adriano
  10. Fast. Intelligent. Deadly. The "Raptor" is perhaps one of the most famous dinosaur today thanks to Jurassic Park. To many people's surprise however, raptors are heavily feathered and nimbler than movies would have you believe. The Jurassic Park Velociraptor was merely the size of coyote in real life! In fact, their proper family name is 'Dromaeosaurid'. The largest species was Utahraptor, and it grew to the size of a grizzly bear! Dromaeosaurid fossils have been found all over the world. They first appeared during the Cretaceous, though isolated teeth have been found in the mid-Jurassic. Allow me to present my humble collection of Dromaeosaurid teeth. First up, from Cloverly Formation, one of my pride and joy from @hxmendoza A dromaeosaurid from Aguja Formation. I am seeing more Aguja fossils showing up, but dromaeosaurid teeth are still rare. Now, for the dromaeosaurids from the famous Hell Creek Formation. Some of them probably lived alongside T. rex. A big shout-out for @Troodon for getting me started on dromaeosaurids with this very first Acheroraptor!

  12. Birthday gift raptor

    Today is my girlfriends birthday, and for the occasion I made her a special present. A few weeks ago I got my hands on a 3D print of a Velociraptor mongoliensis thanks to a friend Paleontologist. The plan was to assemble the skull and paint it for her birthday. When I first got the parts I was a little overwhelmed by the amount of surplus plastic material I had to remove to clean the cast. But after a few hours of cleaning the parts with a hobby knife I managed to glue the main parts together. I still kept the lower yaw and the skull appart and left the teeth on the sprues for painting. After a white undercoat with a spray-can I panted the bones dark brown up to tones of lighter brown and ochre. The teeth were painted in a gray-brown color with a finishing gloss and glued afterwards in the painted skull. Those are a few pictures of the whole process. The parts after cleaning them and gluing the parts together: Undercoat of white paint: the skull parts with the different tones of brown: Glueing the teeth : The finished replica:
  13. Hi all, This is my first post on this site. I am hoping I have come to the right place. I've spent some time searching the internet for answers but not having allot of luck so figured I should look at asking dedicated forums such as this and Collections and Research institutions. I am hoping someone here might be able to point me towards somewhere I can download anatomically correct digital skeletal scans (in the public domain) for Deinonychus Antirrhopus and Velociraptor. I work in the film (visual effects) industry so reference material is super important to us and would love some nicely accurate representations. The intention is to 3d print this so we have a tactile reference. In addition, any general information on digital dinosauria scan repositories, i'd be most grateful. Thank you for any help on links or suggestions who/where I could speak further with. Regards, Nick.
  14. David Evans who described Acheroraptor shared this photo and information on a few notable Dromaeosaurid's. Thought it would be of interest to the Dino guys and others. I also show a hand next to an adult Velociraptor skull which gives a real life size comparison, since a lot of depictions and replicas sold are well oversized. Acherorapter is from the Maastrichtian of Hell Creek/Lance Formation Saurornitholestes shown from Campanian of Canada/Montana Velociraptor from Campanian of Asia David: How big was the Hell Creek dromaeosaurid Acheroraptor temertyorum (top)? It’s about 25% bigger than Saurornitholestes (middle) and 66% bigger than Velociraptor (bottom). For reference it’s about 15% smaller than Deinonychus
  15. skull replicas

    I did a photo shoot with my Nanotyrannus and Velociraptor skull replicas lastnight. Here are some of my favourites...
  16. I would like to know if it s possible to differentiate a velociraptor and an oviraptor hand claw. Are there any objective criteria that distinguish them?
  17. An easy to understand basic comparison of these two iconic raptors https://mongoliandinosaurs.org/velociraptor-and-utahraptor-how-do-the-cousins-compare-after-new-information-comes-to-light/ VELOCIRAPTOR UTAHRAPTOR
  18. So I found a cool little video on how the fighting dinosaurs probably ended up in that position. Enjoy!
  19. Hello I just joined this fourm. I am pursuing my childhood dreams of being a Paleontologost. I have a tuition wavier to any New Jersey State Institution and I am going to use it to its full potential. What are some recommended NJ state Colleges/Universities for Paleontology/Geological studies? -Thank You!
  20. My 3D Extinct Animals

    These are my extinct animals: I made these 3D models made in Maya for fun and i even sold some of them online I'm not sure how accurate they are i just used images as reference maybe some people can give me hints on how to improve them Right now i don't have more rendered images, i will ad more in the future Proetida - i don't know the exact species, i just found some images in google of a trilobite and i made it _______________________________________ Pikaia - From the Cambrian Burgess Shale _______________________________________ Velociraptor - Not finished yet _______________________________________ Dunkleosteus - Just the basic shape yet
