What part of the Red Deer River did you collect? I've collected from Drumheller to up and around the Tolman Bridge.  Nice country.  That tyrannosaur tooth is pretty nice , size?

 

This area is further up river from Tolman.  

 

Found about a half dozen Tyrannosaur teeth. I didnt measure them but

I guess they were between  3cm to 10cm.  Usually dont find that many but they tend to lodge in the vertical rills I was climbing up.  

 

Here's a photo of my favourite tooth of the day. Less spectacular than the others but I like the ones that had wear and breakage in the Tyrannosaur's lifetime before being swallowed or shed.  They participated in a lot of meals.

I love these trip reports. Wish I could go collecting in the Scollard, but I'd have to move to Alberta permanently.

These type of teeth are also my favorite.  They really show a slice of life.

No. Vertebrate fossils can be surface collected on public land if not within a park. The export of fossils requires a special permit (various criteria).  

 

I dont add to my collection because at my age trying to get stuff out of the door rather than bringing more in.

Thanks.

 

I just use my old Iphone 4 until the battery runs down to 10% ( then I shut it off for emergency use only).  At home later a lot of delete, delete...another photo of my boot...delete.

Is this a T-rex tooth? That looks to be a really nice and large one!

Maybe you could put a bag full of these TRex teeth up for auction to benefit the forum!! :popcorn:

Alberta fossils cant be sold without a special permit or certificate of ownership.
