    Help with fossil ID

    Just wondering if anyone recognizes this. I am pretty sure it is a fossil but not sure if it is corral or bone or something different. I don’t have any pics with a tape measure on my phone but can get some tomorrow if it would help. It is roughly the size of my palm. Found in Southern Alberta in an area that has other Bearpaw formation fossils. However I have found other marine fossils here that are clearly not from the Bearpaw formation and are thought to have been brought from further west possibly by glaciers. I also found a rugose corral in the same area. It is concave in the middle
  2. While hiking in the Central Alberta Badlands Near Toleman in Red Deer River Valley came across two pieces of fossilized matter that looked very different than most of the bone fragments I have encountered while on similar outings. If I was to take a wild & uneducated guess I would say they look like they could be osteoderms? Any help to ID these strange pieces would be greatly appreciated. Thank you In advance.

    Strange textured rock

    Hi All, First post for me. Excited to participate! I have recently taken up fossil hunting in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada's river valley creek beds. I have found several fossilized bone fragments, petrified wood fragments and even a few first nations artifacts. All of these have been found on small creek bed shelves during low water. The geological time period is mesozoic. The first object I would appreciate any feedback on is an irregularly textured flat rock or potentially a fossil of some kind. It was found loose on the surface next to the water. It has an
  4. Found lots of teeth today, here’s some I need a little help with as I’ve never found these before. I think one is a troodontid, one is maybe dromaeosaur, and the other I have no idea. (Apologies for the quality, my phone isn’t good macro photography) Dinosaur Park Fm

    Cretaceous Jaw Fragment? Please Help ID

    Found this fossil while surface collecting in the Alberta Badlands (Canada) North Of Drumheller in the Red Deer river valley. Looking for some help to ID this unusual looking fossil. If I had to guess I'd say it looks like a possible jaw fragment? Any help to ID would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  6. Hello Everyone I recently came across three interesting bone fragments while hiking near the Red Deer River North of Drumheller ( Alberta, Canada). The one bone fragment has a perfectly round symmetrical hole right through it, & the second & third fragment appears to have little pock marks or indentations on it (reminds me a bit of the whisker pocks a dog has on its face) . Anyways I am just a hobbyist however the fragments with the pocked marks I'm going to guess is part of the jaw or maybe somewhere near the mouth? Any help to help ID or any additional information of any kind would b

    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.

    ID help

    Hello I found this piece of sandstone along the Athabasca river just south of Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada. Since it’s sandstone I’m assuming it came from either the Mcmurray (late barremian or early Aptian) or Grandrapids (Albian) formation although my geology skills are not great. I tried to do some googling on what it could be but I found no results since I couldn’t be specific enough since I don’t really know what I’m doing. Any ideas? I attached an image of the location for fun that I took a while before I found the rock. I found it to the right of the creek tha

    Help with id

    Can anyone id this? I would have just wrote it off as a rock if it wasn’t for the hole in the ends. Not sure if it goes right through or not. I can’t blow through it but there is sediment inside the hole. A friend suggested it was maybe a worm burrow. The area I found this in mainly has Bearpaw formation fossils but lately I have been finding older stuff like a rugose coral that was maybe deposited by glacier or river flow from older deposit upstream. If this is some kind of worm burrow cast do you have any suggestion as to the age? Thanks in advance for any insight.
  11. 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.
  12. 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!
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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
  20. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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
  24. 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
