    Can anyone ID this?

    Hi everyone. I found this on the Red Deer River in Alberta Canada. I was wondering if anyone could ID what animal this fossil came from? I cant get all images in one post in will post the other photos in the comments.
  2. Leahlovesnature

    Any ideas what this is ?

    I found this one in the same location of a few other confirmed fossils, is it just a rock or should I investigate this further?

    Corals?

    Hi everyone! I retook some photos with the tips I was given (Thankyou) found in a riverbed, Alberta, Canada

    Fossil or no fossil

    Hi everyone! Mega mega newbie here and I’m not even sure if I got my hand on real fossils or not. So would appreciate any information and suggestions, thankyou
  5. Hello everyone, I'm going to be in Alberta soon and I was hoping to do some fossil hunting. I read on a previous post to this forum that dinosaur fossils can be found in the Horseshoe Valley, but I was wondering if anyone has any other suggestions near Drumheller, or if they could provide any tips for this locale. I'm aware of the laws regarding fossil collection as well, all specimens will be catch and release. I'm just trying to fulfill a dream I've had since watching Jurassic Park 20 years ago haha. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Good to see this put to bed. Abstract says it all...abbreviated... Several published censuses have noted the presence of two tyrannosaurids, Daspletosaurus sp. and Albertosaurus sarcophagus, within the Upper Cretaceous Horseshoe Canyon Formation of Alberta............Although none of these methods individually provides convincing evidence regarding the affinities of the specimen, together (and including other historical and biostratigraphic considerations) they strongly imply that the skeleton instead pertains to a young A. sarcophagus. In this way, we show that only a single species

    Looking for an ID please

    Hi, looking for an ID on this. From research it looks like snake vertebrae? But seems too large. Big snake? Found in Alberta. About 8 inches across, 3 inches deep. Thank you for any ideas.
  8. Hi all, I'm planning a trip to Alberta this summer and am hoping to dig for dinosaur fossils somewhere. Our trip will take us to drumheller for a day, which puts us in close proximity to Horseshoe and Horsethief Canyons, both of which I've heard contain fossils. What I'm wondering is, where in the canyons can fossils be found? And is one of the canyons better for fossil hunting than the other? If anyone knows of any other fossil sites near drumheller that are open to the public, that would also be great. Thanks!
  9. Does anyone have photos of fossils from dinosaur provincial park Alberta if so can you send me them because I’m doing reaserch on the dinosaur park formation
  10. Hi all, I just got this tooth from Tolman Bridge area of Alberta. That area falls within Edmonton Group supposedly. I believe it's a hadrosaur maxillary tooth. Any idea what kinda hadrosaur it could be? Thank you for your help.

    Tooth marks on Dino bone?

    I found this piece of dinosaur bone last summer while I was surface collecting in the Horseshoe Canyon area near Drumheller, Alberta. It wasn’t until I was home and cleaned the piece that I noticed what looks like tooth marks on the bone. Is it tooth marks on the bone? I know this is stretch but any idea what type of bone this may be (rib, leg, etc.)? Thanks for looking at this. Cherise

    Any thought on what this is?

    Hi All, looking for ideas again! I came across this piece in the collection that was left to me and I am wondering if anyone has any ideas as to what it might be? Probably found in Cretaceous Alberta in Dinosaur Provincial Park. I was going to guess corporlite, but I really have no idea! All thoughts greatly appreciated!!!
  13. Seller has a couple of very nice Tyrannosaurid teeth for sale with the proper disposition no issue with any of that. The fly in the ointment is formation or locality. He describes these teeth as being from the Oldman Formation of Drumheller. The problem is that teeth found around Drum are earlier in age and associated with the Horseshoe Canyon Fm. The Oldman Formation is far from Drumheller located southeast of Calgary vs Northeast. The implication of all of this is species of Tyranno these teeth are associated with Albertosaurus (HCF ) or Gorgosaurus or Daspletosaurus (OF)

    Fossil?

    Appears to be mineral deposits of some sort, however the spiral shape of the mineral makes it look fossily. Matrix is 4"x4"x6", very dense, hardness around 5. Found in a river near Grand Cache, Alberta. Any ideas?

    Id please?

    Does anyone have any ideas about these two bits? The round one is almost perfectly round.
  16. I am itching to find my first ammonite. The problem is I dont know where to look. I know they are found in southern alberta but here is my question. Can ammonites be found anywhere in alberta? Also I live on a very large lake in northern alberta, is it worth my time to look around my lake for ammonites? I dont want to bother if it's not possible to find any. Also any advice on ammonite hunting would be much appreciated.
  17. I found this years ago as well. I cant remember exactly where. I think maybe by the lesser slave lake area. There is some kind of imprint on the rock. Does anyone know what it is from?

    Fossil ID part 2

    I found this when I was a kid. I have no clue what it is. Could be just a weird rock I guess. It looks to me like it could be some sort of a shell maybe? Any ideas? I will post a couple photos in the comments since I can only upload one photo at a time.
  19. pRoDiUeS

    fossil ID please.

    Hi everyone I have a shell fossil that I would like identified if possible. I believe this is some sort of bivalve but I cant figure out what species. When I Google it in get so many different kinds. This one is cool because it has a bit of blue on the shell. I found it in alberta while walking along the red deer river.

    Vertebra - fossil or bone?

    Hello, I am reaching out to you all to see what everyone thinks! How do you tell if a bone has fossilized or not? I fished this vertebra out of the Red Deer River this summer, buried in the silt, very near to Dinosaur Provincial Park. It is quite heavy, which makes me wonder if it's fossilized? Does the dark color suggest fossil? I was thinking just a big ole' cow or elk vertebra, maybe not that old? But I would be remiss if I didn't pose the question to you all who see these things all the time! Any input would be greatly appreciated!

    Is this a dinosaurid claw?

    I'm curious if this is a beat up claw. I found it mixed in a micro site with vertebrate dinosaur material. It's small and weathered but resembles claw-like features. I'm hoping the photos represent it but not confident. I know others here could identify some subtle characteristics. It looks like random bone fragment from far but when no look closely I see possibility of a claw.
  22. Hi there, Posting here after hours and hours of research and not being able to find any answers. In around 1974, my mother was walking up a small river on or near the border between southern Alberta and southern BC, Canada, and she stumbled across what looked like a smooth, polished rock. She picked it up, and realized it was a rather large canine tooth from an animal. She thought it was a bear tooth, which I don't agree with - doesn't seem to be the right shape. She brought it to a jeweller and had it capped with silver and made into a pendant. The jeweller said it was the hardest t
  23. It happens every year. My birthday. We decide to disappear into Northern Alberta along the banks of the Little Smoky and Smoky Rivers. The weather was not warm, but at least it was not snowing like it was during this same weekend in southern Alberta. Mornings started out about -4C and warmed to +6C by the time we were trudging home with our packs full of treasures. Baculites and Scaphites were our targetted fossils, although clams were not ignored. It never seems to get any easier. The first day on the Little Smoky was the easiest on our bodies, but the mud bog for about 500 yards going in was
