  1. I am just driving back from a fantastic 5 day collecting trip in Southeastern Montana. I had the opportunity to collect on a private ranch that had not been heavily hunted for several years. Our group made quite a few interesting finds. I am hoping that someone on the forum might be able to assist in identifying this unusual bone. It is definitely theropod and based on the size, likely tyrannosaur. It appears to be a portion of the skull but I am having trouble matching it up. I apologize for the lousy pictures in advance. The bone measures approximately 5-6

    Hell Creek Small Theropod Claw

    Hi everyone! I wanted to post one of my new favorite finds from this past week of collecting in the Hell Creek formation of Montana. I found this little partial claw at a microsite which proved to be quite productive, making for a great day. While the articulating surface is missing, I still feel that it could be identifiable and my first guess is bird. Avisaurus in particular as I remember seeing similar claws being labeled as such on other platforms. It’s about two centimeters long and the bottom is flat, giving it a somewhat triangular cross section. photos from the field.

    Triceratops prorsus (2)

    From the album: Dinosaurs

    Triceratops prorsus Hell Creek Fm., Harding Co., SD, USA 3.5 cm height On the ranch where this tooth was found, only T. prorsus skulls have been found in the 30+ years the company has operated there, lending a very probable, precise identification for this Ceratopsian tooth. (T. prorsus was one of the last dinosaurs, younger than T. horridus. The two species are also stratigraphically separated in the Hell Creek Fm., so it makes sense that one may only find one species in a particular deposit.) For most Ceratopsid teeth (from the Hell Creek Fm., for example),

    Interesting Hell Creek Vertebra

    Hi everyone, I found this little, mostly complete vertebra in the Hell Creek formation of South Dakota in 2019. I don't really know what to make of it as it's very porous, and amphiplatyan (flat on both sides), although I'm not sure how much of that could be attributable to wear. I believe it's safe to cross of squamate (due to lack of concavity) and champsosaur (overall shape) off the list. While most of the crocodilian verebrae I have found in the hell creek have have a convex and concave end, I am aware that some can be found that are flat sided. The porosity of the bone makes me hopeful th
  6. For day 3, it was decided to go back to the Deers Ears butte. Everyone was sore and worn out from 2 days of hiking, so a chance to stay in a single spot and dig would be a chance to rest. My team went to the Tooth Draw quarry, the others went to other sites, including one new one. The day started pretty slow, but then mid afternoon my son uncovered a tooth (havent determined T.Rex or Nano). I was so proud of him, he did an expert job in recovery. The tip was broken insitu and could have been easily separated or lost, but he was slow, careful and judicious with the paleobond and got the to
  7. What a trip my son and I had this year! We started out in the Hell Creek fm of South Dakota. This was a special trip through Paleo Adventures for his "veteran" guests who have already spent a few years with him and could operate without supervision. We started out hunting a new ranch. This property is virgin ground with LOTS of acreage that needed exploration. The group was split into 3 teams, each taking a different area. Our team was further split into pairs. So, it was my son and me, exploring for new outcrops. The sun was intense, the temperature hot, and hours of hiking and sta

  9. Two Tyrannosaurid teeth that I ordered early this week has arrived. This is the first tooth that I want to show, which is a tooth of a juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex (or Nanotyrannus). Since I personally believe that the Nanotyrannus is an invalid genus, I think this is a juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex tooth. For those who do not agree, this is a Nanotyrannus tooth. This tooth is from Hell Creek formation of Garfield Co. Montana. This is an 1-3/8 inch, and has some chips and scratches at the labial side, but I think this is still a great tooth.

    Triceratops prorsus

    From the album: Dinosaurs

    Triceratops prorsus Hell Creek Fm., Harding Co., SD, USA This is a nice tooth with great enamel, partially rooted, and has some feeding wear (which I enjoy). It does have some repair/consolidation. Usually, Ceratopsian teeth are indistinguishable from each other. In HC, Torosaurus and Triceratops (currently) are the valid genera. However, the company operating on the ranch where this tooth was found has only found T. prorsus skulls in the 30+ years they've been there. This tooth, being found in the same deposit, therefore has a good probability of bein

    Hell Creek Radius - Edmontosaurus

    Hello, This fossil caught my eye as one to buy. It is described as a radius--23 inches long. Seller doesn't know the species, but speculates it could be theropod. Am I right in thinking it is actually Edmontosaurus? It is from Hell Creek, Montana -- near the town of Jordan. I did a bit of looking, and 23 inches seems far too big for any of the Hell Creek theropods. Edmontosaurus radius bones look around the same length--a google search shows some previously sold which were around 20 inches plus. The weight is just under 6lbs. So, am I correct
  14. Hi, Now, this is the worst for wear, but if it is as described, I figure it's my best chance to get a triceratops horn for a price that is in my budget---since I've seen full ones go for thousands, I'd never afford one.. And even though it's a bit battered, it seems repairable to a degree---the top part seems like it can repaired, as does the bit connecting to the skull, but it is missing a chunk of the middle section unfortunately. I So, is it as described--a Triceratops horn, or something else that resembled a horn? It was found in Western South Dakota, Hell Creek. De

    Hell Creek "theropod" vertebra

    Hello, I'm tempted by one of these verts I saw for sale. All labelled as Hell Creek theropod. Each is from Powder River County in Montana. There are 4 verts, some look similar, so I'll try and do 4 different posts. They are quite small, and most show a honeycomb type texture--which I think is a sign that they are carnivore? I am guessing, given the small size, that these would all be from one of the raptor species from Hell Creek. EDIT: It automatically merged them. Hope its clear which is which. Vert 1 - 2 inch long, 1.75 wide, 2.25 tall

    Hell Creek bones

    Hello, What are the thoughts on these two bones. No positive id given or a county more specific than Hell Creek Montana and said as possibly a toe bone. There are two bones. The first one has a bunch of photos and is approximately 2cm long. The 2nd one only has just two photos --- is number 2 the end of a metatarsal? Number 2 is approximately 3 cm long. Sorry there's not much more info on location. Thanks for the help

    Hell Creek theropod bones?

    Hell Creek cervical rib?

    Hi y'all. I bought a lot of fragmentary, unidentified dinosaur rib bones from Hell Creek, Harding Co., SD. I didn't buy them for this bone in particular, but once in-hand, it caught my eye and I wondered if it was identifiable since it had a more unique shape. This of course may be wishful thinking, and I'm fine with it remaining unidentifiable. My primary guess is it being the proximal end of a Tyrannosaur cervical rib. I referenced Brochu (2002) "Osteology of Tyrannosaurus rex: Insights from a Nearly Complete Skeleton and High- Resolution Comp

    Hell Creek vertebra

    Hello, Can someone take a look at this and give your thoughts? I bought it without getting it ID'd because of it's ridiculously low price--if I waited to get it ID'd it would have probably been snapped up. So, figured it was worth a buy now, id later. Anyway, it is sold as been "dinosaur vertebra" from Hell Creek, Montana. I think it is Edmontosaurus because of the heart-shaped centrum--others online seem to have that shape to them. I was wondering if it might also be a Thescelosaurus vertebra given the small size, but most of them I see seem to have more rounded centru

    Juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex Tooth

    Identification: This tooth was sold as being from a Dromaeosaur. The serrations' shape and their similarity on both carinae say otherwise. In the Hell Creek Formation, there are potentially two Tyrannosaur species. If Nanotyrannus is invalid, then this is automatically a T. rex tooth. For those who consider Nanotyrannus to be valid, this tooth is still T. rex based on the robustness of the tip and serrations, and the CHR (Crown Height Ratio). Tyrannosaurus maxillary teeth may still have minor basal compression, as this one does. This is from a juvenile animal based on its small

Sorry for the poor quality of the images, but I'm uploading them from my cell phone. As soon as I can, I will replace them with better quality ones. I would appreciate any comments from you.

    Triceratops?

    Hi everyone, I recently bought this 'Triceratops' vert from Hell Creek online. But on receiving it, I have doubts. I might consider it to be an Edmontosaurus vert. It is not that heart shaped and thicker than a Ceratopsian I figure. What are your thoughts? Dimensions: 12,5cm (h), 9cm (w), 7cm (d) - weight +/- 700 grams More pics needed? Thank you!
