  1. Hello, I am seeking identification on a spscimen I found in Horsethief Canyon (not to be confused with Horseshoe Canyon), just outside of Drumheller, Alberta, Canada. (Dino capital of the world!). I found this specimen above ground while hiking in the coolees of the canyon. It was not nearby anything similar to my knowledge. I took photographs of it under my microscope to assist with identificafion. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide. Take care.

    Rugose Coral

    I found a rugose coral today and I also found another piece that looks similar but doesn’t have the rugose shape. Can you tell me if it is a rugose coral piece as well of possibly something different. Also found a piece of baculite not too far away. These were found in southern Alberta in the Bearpaw Formation I believe. The pictures below are of the rugose coral I found near by.
  3. During one of my hikes exploring the badlands in Central Alberta Canada (Scollard formation) near the Red Deer river I found this strange flat & thin piece of what appears to be fossilized bone. As you can see from the pictures it fans outward and it's quite thin, to me it almost looks similar to a aquatic flipper although I obviously am not sure at all what this could be. My instinct wants to say turtle piece possibly? Any help to ID this cool fossil would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

    Is it a fossil? Or something else?

    While out for a walk my son picked up this rock. He thinks it is a fossil but I’m not so sure. If it is he would love to know what kind of fossil it is and if it isn’t we would love to know what has caused these lines. It was a surface find in Southern Alberta just on a dirt path at the top of a coulee. It is about the size of an average females thumbnail. The front has lines all over it. The back is smooth. thank you for any insight you can give!
  5. Hello everyone, while I was getting some exercise exploring the badlands here in central Alberta (Red Deer river valley Scollard formation I believe) I found a piece of fossilized bone that must have been recently exposed due to spring thaw. I am no guru however it appears to have some predation marks on it (third picture left side) & to me looks like it could be a leg bone? I'm looking for some help confirm these are in fact predation marks & also to ID the bone itself if possible. I know its difficult due to it being just a small fragment but any help or additional info would be gr
  6. Hey Folks, Going through some photos from earlier this month. I never kept this rock. But upon looking at this pic more and more...did I toss a megalodon tooth?! Or is this just some kind of cool looking rock? E&B - The forever newbies.
  7. Hey Folks, My 5 year old son found this close to home. It’s about the size of a small fingernail, and appears to be only a half shape, if that makes any sense? The object does not appear to continue beneath the matrix. Any idea what it might be? Thanks, E&B
  8. Hello everyone, first time poster here. While enjoying a day hike through the badlands of central Alberta near the Red Deer river (North of Drumheller) my girlfriend & I came across multiple oval shaped fossils (I hope) that look quite unusual. As you can see all of them are very similar in shape & size. They all seem to have what appear to be two lobes on each side & crease down the center. The one on the far right is quite shiny & has a gloss to it almost. The sizes range from 4.5cm x 2.5cm to 5.5cm x 3.5cm. I was hoping to get some help to ID these strange looking objects a

    Need help with ID

    I was hoping someone could help identify this bone. Do you know where this bone is from inside the body. It was found in southern Alberta from the dinosaur park formation. I found it in a washout beside another bone that looked like a vertebrae. Both bones are in pretty rough shape so maybe too hard to identify.

    Petrified Wood with a bone?

    Hey Folks, My son and I found a bunch of petrified wood close to our house up here in Cochrane, Alberta. Could the piece next to the wood be bone? E&B
  11. Hey Folks, My five year old son found this 10lbs slab with shells embedded in it. There are more on the sides. I would say that each shell is about 3 inches long. What is the best way to clean this up? Should I buy a dremel? E & B

    Petrified Wood - Carbonized?

    Hey Folks, We found this hunk this afternoon. Any idea why the piece of wood here in black is carbonized? It comes off when you rub it. Other pieces we found today are definitely fossilized, but this one is different. Any ideas? E & B
  13. I was given this from my grandfather who collected it around Medicine Hat, Alberta. I believe it was likely in the 1920's. I believe it is an ammonite but wondering if you can tell me more.
  14. New member. I did post in an old question too. I’ve been legally collecting surface finds from an area where I know others have collected too. I mostly find small fragments and want to see if anyone else has fragments from the area they don’t want so I can take them to the small schools near me and show to the kids and out of curiosity see if any fit with what I have. I want to note I know the laws about collecting and have met up with some folks from U of A when I’ve found anything for them. It’s just junk stuff I’m wanting. Like to show kids what they are more likely to
  15. Hey guys! My first scientific publication has just been released online by the journal Geological Magazine in association with Cambridge University Press (see link below). My study describes the first probable deinonychosaur tracks from Canada, which my colleagues and I found and documented at a large dinosaur tracksite (about 72.5 million years old) near the city of Grande Prairie in Alberta, Canada. Four traces occur in possible trackway association, while another isolated track that is in exactly the same direction is located nearby on the same bedding plane, suggestive of at least tw

    Just wondering if anyone can help with identifying what this is. Found in southern Alberta. Dinosaur Park formation.

    South Ram River Alberta scaphites

    Wonderful trip to the South Ram River in between camping and kayaking. While the rest of the group went to see Ram River Falls I elected to check my favourite spot for any scaphites that may have popped up since my last visit a couple years ago. Lucky day.

    Some New Finds in December

    Was lucky enough to go for a couple hikes just before 2020 ended and I figured I’d show off a few bones I found along the way. This area is now much more covered in snow than it was the day the photo was taken...that was probably the final fossil hunting day until spring at least. Got a hadrosaur claw as well as some more bones from the hand, another partial tyrannosaurid toe bone (that brings me to 4 now) and a couple more ornithomimid toe bones as well. Didn’t get skunked at least!

    My Tyrannosaur research

    Hi I decided to make a post about my main research project right now on Campanian Tyrannosaurs specifically Daspletosaurus. Today I have found something to tell teeth from the Judith River Formation and Dinosaur Park Formation. This could also do with the Tyrannosaurs prey or locality. I found out that Judith River Formation Tyrannosaur teeth serrations are more circular and more round compared to the same time Dinosaur Park Formation Tyrannosaur teeth serrations. The Dinosaur Park Formation Tyrannosaur teeth serrations are more longer skinner and more chiseled like but not like other Tyrannos
  20. I have recently been looking at some of my photos from trips and found photos of when I was in Alberta in 2018. I saw a photo of a Hadrosaur footprint from a trackway in Dinosaur Provincial Park that me and my brother found. I also read not to long ago that no big trackways have been found in this area so I decided to give the information and location to the Palaeontologist at the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, Alberta. I was responded by Dr. Caleb Brown, he told me that I was most likely right and it was probably Hadrosaur. I am currently waiting for him to reply again to see what he thi
  21. This topic is for information purposes of an experience I just encountered when looking at a Tyrannosaurid tooth on an auction site. You often see me request additional locality information when trying to ID a dinosaur tooth. I'm always concerned that the sellers provenance is not specific enough when it comes to material from Montana or Alberta to verify that the Formation provided is correct since it affects identification. Here is a good example of one case that paid off. In this case what was being offered for sale was several listings of Albertosaurus teeth from

    Some teeth

    I found a few different teeth this fall and was wondering if someone can help me identify them. I have an idea for some but I might also be way off. All found in Alberta in the Dinosaur Park Formation. Any info is much appreciated. Hadrosaur?? For this second picture Ray tooth? Found 2’ away from the tooth in second picture. If it is a ray it must have been from an upper layer?? I think Bearpaw Formation above. If not a Ray do you know what? croc scute and teeth?? Not sure about this one??
  23. Hey! I found some crystallized dinosaur bones and wood and was wondering what makes them crystallize, and if that makes them worth more?

    Concretion

    I was walking along the river and found this concretion. I have broke open many others and found nothing. This time there was something inside but I don’t know what. Any ideas? Comes from southern Alberta and what I believe is the Bearpaw Formation. If you look in the last picture where I wet it you can see some layers of Ammolite or shell. Any suggestions for cleaning around this thing without totally destroying it. It is very fragile and flakey inside. Or should it just be left as is. Thanks for any input.

    Can you help ID this fossil

    Can you help identify this fossil. It has shell material on it that is iridescent pink and what looks like suture lines maybe on the surfaces. Found in an area where there is baculite and ammonite nearby. Found one other piece as well. Internally it doesn’t look like any other piece of ammonite I have found before.
