Very neat. You don't usually find material from Uzbekistan. Once again, thanks for sharing some of your fossils. Love them.

troodon... I know you do some collecting in the Hell Creek, but your recent "Jurassic Park" posts leave me wondering do you also collect in the Morrison, and I assume form your "I'm not that crazy" comment that you do not collect in Uzbekistan, or any other Stan. Just being curious.

I have collected in the Morrison but just don't have the access I do in the Hell Creek or Lance simple as that. Would love to given the opportunity.

Hi Frank, many years ago, I was offered some Iguanodontian teeth from Uzbekistan but hesitated too long and missed out on them. Do you happen to have any in your collection? There have also been some nice marine reptile teeth from there to if i'm not mistaken.

No, but I have one from Kazakhstan, close :) Material from this part of Asia is incredibly hard to acquire.

A lesson I learned the hard way a long time ago, just like you, you have to pull the trigger instantly when something special is offered to you. At the Tucson show I've seen it time and time again, you walk out of a room and go back a few minutes later whatever you were looking is gone. Yes on the marine but have never seen any.

Amazing fossils! I am very impressed. I can only imagine how much time and effort has gone into assembling your collection. It's an inspiration to fossil collecting.

A new addition to my collection is from a newly described species from Uzbekistan of the Hadrosaur

Bactrosaurus kysylkumensis.

Partial maxilla with very colorful teeth

Photos show both sides.

Nice partial jaw! Especially like the teeth in there. They have a very nice and unique color tot tem. Kind of look like tiger stripes. A wonderful addition!

How do you get these things? They must be extremely expensive.

Several ways.  Over the many years of collecting I've developed a relationship with dealers that contact me when something new arrives.  Attending big fossil shows like the Tucson or Denver always helps where you find dealers that do not have an online presence..  This material is now seen for sale on auction sites like eBay so its available to all, correct not cheap.

Really nice collection of which I can only dream of. How do you finance your collection? If I can ask you that.
