Well, you have many more years ahead of you, but this is a very impressive start. 

Some of those pieces are most enviable. 

Love your collection and the displays. 

Thank you very much for sharing! :)

Don't forget to add to this page as you acquire more stuff. 

Just adore that Aegocrioceras! :envy:

Nice collection, great variety, like the bat bones but my favorite continues to be the Denversaurus tooth.   Thanks for sharing.

Diacalymene ouzregui is invalid. The correct name is Flexicalymene ouzregui.

I am very impressed. You have a very nice diversity of fossils and minerals. I would be willing to bet that your collection is probably better than most adults, so don't sell yourself short. Also I wanted to add that I like the way your specimens are displayed and the lights are a nice touch.

I don't know, is Denversaurus even rare in Hell Creek? I heard it's the only described nodosaur described, so I guess teeth are quit common. Thank you

@gigantoraptor To address your question, Is Denversaurus even rare in Hell Creek?  I heard it's the only described nodosaur described.

 

Correct its currently is the only described nodosaur in the Hell Creek/Lance Formation so the teeth are common but crisp ones like yours are not, most are very worn.  I suspect that new discoveries will uncover additional species like we see in older campanian formations.  Unfortunately if that ever occurs you will not be able to differentiate the teeth between species but thats down the road.

What is the skull to the left of the Sabortooth Cat (which is an incredible thing to have no matter what your age is, by the way)?

It's a lion skull and the skull on the left is a recent pig skull.
