  1. This is an authentic Apatosaurus femur fossil on display in Korea. It was discovered in the Morrison Formation and is a legendary fossil that has not been much restored and is 80% authentic! It weighs over 120kg!
  2. Hi. Thanks in advance for help from anyone. I recently bought these bones from someone with access to Bone Cabin Quarry, I am 100% confident these came from there. I can tell that some look like limb bones, #3 looks to me like part of a sauropod vertebra (but I could be wrong). I am fairly new at this. The person said the other Jurassic dinosaurs from the general area included Sauropods: Diplodocus, Camarasaurus, Apatosaurus, also Allosaurus and Stegosaurus. There are 15 bones in the photos, numbered 1-15. If anyone can tell me with any reasonable confidence about any of these, and how they know (I want to learn), it would be a valuable learning experience for me. I forgot to put in a ruler, but the box is 16" by 12". I do appreciate it! Gordon

    Tooth or no tooth?

    Just acquired this “tooth” from an antique store… showed it to a rock hound here in Utah.. he said it looked like a Sauropod juvenile’s tooth.. can you comment and help?

    Apatosaurus and Torvosaurus tooth?

    Hi I’ve been wondering if these teeth have the correct id. Sauropod tooth is labeled as a Apatosaurus and the theropod tooth is labeled as Torvosaurus .The sauropod tooth is from Carbon County Wyoming and the the theropod tooth is from Moffat county Colorado. The theropod tooth is 1.5 inches and the sauropod tooth is .61 inches.
  5. Hi Fossils Preparation Fans, Last week I received 1900kg of unprepared dinosaur bones in plaster jackets. Now my neigborhood thinks I lost my mind and I received a lot of eye-rolling from my wife. However, my two sons (7y and 2.5y old dino fans) and myself think it was an excellent idea to acquire the material. The fossils have been collected in the upper layers of the Morisson Formation. Location: Moffat County, Colorado As always when buying unprepared dinosaur bones you do not really know what you get. However, it seems that most material is Apatosaurus (or some other Diplodicoidea) with some small pieces which are likely Allosaurus. I will know more after I started preparing the material. The bone quality and completeness of the bones is ranging from very good to poor according to the seller (what that means I will find out soon). Anyway, this will keep me busy for one or two years. If there is interest I will post a picture once in a while.
  6. On Sunday I took a trip to the Natural History Museum in London. I queued up before it opened at 10am and even before then there was a long queue. I have not visited this museum since I was a child and spent an entire day there (10am to 4.30pm - a long time). I was surprised as it is a lot bigger than I remembered and there was so much to see. This place has the most wonderful things and is an incredible place to learn. The museum showcases a Baryonyx, Sophie the Stegosaurus (the world's most complete Stegosaurus) and more! The moving Trex and Deinonychus are also really realistic in the way they move. If you like your dinosaur teeth, the Megalosaurus and Daspletosaurus teeth are out of this world! There is something for everyone in this museum and I would highly recommend that you visit here if you have not already! A lot of the dinosaur specimens are casts taken from other museums but they are still cool to look at. I had taken the photos on my SLR and due to the size of the photos I had to reduce the quality of them to be able to post on the forum which is unfortunate but it's the only way otherwise the photos would take a really long time to load. There are more non-dinosaur related photos that I will be posting at some point later on but may take me some time to pick out. Enjoy the photos from this section of the museum! Blue Zone Dinosaurs (has a mix of some photos of crocs too)
  7. Currently up in the Chicago area visiting with family and getting ready to start a bucket-list trip out to Iceland for a couple of weeks. While driving through downtown Chicago along Lake Shore Drive we passed the Field Museum of Natural History which was one of my favorite haunts when I lived in Chicago when I was younger. I noticed the banners for Máximo the new Patagonian titanosaur (Patagotitan mayorum) which displaced Sue the T-rex from the main floor to her own room in the upper floor of the museum. I decided that it had been years since I'd visited the Field Museum and I needed to make the pilgrimage for my birthday. I'll try to make a post a bit later with a few of the photos that I took during the visit. So much to see and I only went for part of a day to see some of the fossil and mineral exhibits. I noticed one of several "MOLD-A-RAMA" plastic injection molding machines strategically located around the museum. These were a favorite souvenir as a kid (I think I had all of the various shapes). I spotted the one with the Apatosaurus in a Kelly green reminiscent of the old Sinclair dinosaur (named 'Dino' and pronounced 'DYE-no'). https://www.sinclairoil.com/dino-history I decided it was worth the three bucks to buy myself a birthday present and so I swiped my credit card (a modern retrofit of this machine dating from the early 1960's when it cost but a quarter) and in moments produced my very own mini-Apatosaurus. The novelty being that I probably had one of these made on this very same machine when I was a kid--likely some 40-45 years ago. I think this is one of my favorite birthday presents I've had for some time (even if I had to buy it for myself). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mold-A-Rama http://mold-a-rama.com/ The more things change, the more some things stay the same--it's nice to have a small speck of constancy in this modern world were progress dooms the latest inventions and must-have items to a short lifespan sometimes measured in months. The MOLD-A-RAMA looks to have enjoyed only a rather regional bit of popularity but I hope this may bring back a bit of nostalgia to some TFF members from the area. Cheers. -Ken

    Apatosaurus sp.

    Hi All, This tooth is being advertised as Apatosaurus sp. details below, what do you think of the overall quality of the specimens? I am thinking of waiting it out until I find a nicer one with less filling fractures but want your opinions! It seems as though both of these are overpriced considering the quality of the teeth. Although the first tooth has size going for it, I like second! Apatosaurus sp. Morrison Formation Upper Jurassic Moffat County, Colorado Tooth 1 (going for 350 dollars) - 4.5 cm. Shaft is fractured from burial (see slightly disjointed segments). Only restoration is along these natural fractures. Tooth 2 (going for 1000 dollars) : little restoration and only mainly filling of natural fractures. 6.5 cm long
