  1. Hello. A while ago I purchased this specimen from a highly reputable and established seller. It's a T-Rex jaw fragment from Lance Creek, Wyoming, and was a surface find (see photos of the original specimen in situ; according to the finder, "the piece in question is at the very bottom left, on top of the edge of the longer bigger bone; the tooth grooves are face-down."). I'm reaching out to Fossil Forum for guidance along the following lines: 1) What part of the jaw is this most likely from? I've been studying images on-line at a cursory level, but I can't find

    T. rex tooth?

    Hey guys, Is this a T.Rex tooth? It looks like it. It’s only the tip though. Frome Lance Creek, Wyoming, USA Thanks for the imput and regards.
  3. Recently recieved a nice little package of lance creek lag formation matrix for me and a close friend to look through. I personally never handled a tough hard more dry matrix like this as I'm mostly a creek digger and my friend she is a complete amateur so this will be her first time. I'm looking for any helpful tips on how to approach such matrix. It came with two wooden sticks and some strange glue made of beads that I heard u would need acetone to break down, and if that's the case what would be the proper amount to mix? Also would it be a good idea to use the wooden stick
  4. Hello! I recently attended a show and picked up this Triceratops Squamosal Section (labeled as such). I don't have much experience when it comes to ceratopsian bones and I was hoping you guys could help either confirm the I.D. or correct it. It was found in the lance Creek Formation, Wyoming by the seller, dated between 69 to 66 Mya. I know determining the exact species is difficult, and I was thinking of using the I.D. of Chasmosaurinae indet. (Thanks @-Andy- for your helpful naming guide on the "Dromaeosaurus Teeth?" thread ). I tried to get appropriate angled pictures to help with I.D.ing

    Teeth ID

    I was sorting through my collection from decades ago. I have these teeth from the Lance Cr formation. I always assumed they were Triceratops but haven't found any confirmation. They don't match the photos on the internet. So I thought I would ask the experts.

    Mystery fossil (dinosaur? Cretaceous?)

    Hey all, Can anyone help me ID this fossil? It was found at an antique store with no information. Its density and coloration really reminds me of something from out west, like Hell Creek or Lance Creek. There's also a a semi-circle pattern of holes towards one end that reminds me of a crocodile's bite. Any thoughts on the possible ID or if its something besides a croc bite?

    Lance creek repaired

    I received this shattered baby in a field flat of fragments I ordered through an online trading site out of the Lance Creek formation. Pardon the crude repair but it is a work in progress and my first major undertaking. Trying to see if anyone can help identify what it is.

    Lance Creek bone

    Here is another Lance Creek piece. I’m thinking it is a piece off an Edmontodaur vertebrae. How far off base am I?

    Lance Creek tooth?

    I received another box of stuff from The Lance Creek Formation and this was in it. The coloration and texture is different from anything else in the grouping. I spent some time cleaning the encrusted mud off and to be honest am not sure if it is even identifiable. Any help would be appreciated.

    Piece of shell?

    Here is a small piece of something I found while sorting through some bone fragments from Lance Creek formation INC Wyoming. Is it a piece of turtle shell?

    Another from Lance Creek

    Here is another one from the Lance Creek area. So far not a lot of luck on identifying these pieces but it’s worth a shot to keep trying. This was found in Lance Creek of Wyoming which is Cretaceous. The area is known for Triceratops and Edmontosaur so will keep trying to identify these bits and pieces.

    Lance Creek Formation

    Found in the Lance Creek formation Wyoming. I have several items so will post on a couple different posts for clarity. Any help would be appreciated.

    Theropod Teeth and Claw Segment

    Forgive me, for I am new here. So I purchased these two teeth and a (ID’d as) crocodile claw segment at my local gem and mineral show for $10 each. These were identified by the director of my local geology museum as potentially being from the Lance Creek formation in Wyoming, but he said that I may need to wait for another paleontologist who works at Hell Creek to come back and take a closer look at the serrations. The second tooth, however, has the color for a Kem Kem specimen due to its reddish-brown color. The director was nice enough to take photos of them. I have m
  15. Found this enigmatic piece on one of my digs in Wyoming. Found on a ranch in the Lance Creek Formation (Maastrichtian age). Not sure if anything can be said about it other than that it is a bone fragment, but maybe someone knows more than I do. Seems too big/thick to be turtle, but potentially possible. Seems like it could be a worn spike or epoccipital of some sort? (A lot of triceratops specimens were found in the area. Hopefully I can get a bit better of handle on what this is, Thanks for the help!

    Edmontosaurus? Rib from Lance Creek

    I'd like to confirm that this is an Edmontosaurus (that's what the seller said). Would species be identifiable? thank you!

    More Lance Creek

    In going through some matrix from the Lance Creek Formation, Late Maastrichtian, Wyoming, which shares much fauna with the Hell Creek formation, I have found some more interesting things since my last posting on this area. I believe that two of the teeth are crocodilian, either crocodile or alligator. The pictures named "unknown 4" look a little like a triceratops tooth, but I don't want to get my hopes up. The pictures labeled "unknown 3," I have no idea - it just looks like a fossil. The hash marks are 1mm.

    Lance Creek Crocs and Therapod?

    I received some matrix from the Lance Creek Formation, Late Maastrichtian, Wyoming, which shares much fauna with the Hell Creek formation. I have found what I think are 4 croc teeth and what I hope is a therapod tooth (piece). The serrations on the therapod (hopefully) tooth is about 5/mm on the basal side and much finer on the other. The picture doesn't show the finer serrations well, but you can feel them by running your fingernail across it. The hash marks are 1mm. Am I right on any of this?

    Thescelosaurus? Parksosaurus?

    I have here a strange little tooth. It's a little under 1/2 inch. It is from the Lance Creek formation of Wyoming. I think it could be Thescolosaurus or Parksosaurus. However I can't quite rule out a type of croc. I've never seen a tooth like this so sharp. The root is also compressed.

    ID needed for my new tooth

    Hello dear fellow fossil lovers Recently my interest of collecting stuff has shifted to dinosaur teeth, and having a decent sized T Rex tooth in my collection is a must thanks to my OCD. Dinosaurs has fascinated me ever since I was a kid. So after I sold one of my beloved guitars, here it is. I counted the serrations on both side, about 18-22 per cm so should confirm it is pulled out from an adult T.Rex based on what I have read. The info says it was unearthed from Lance Creek fm. Being a complete noob on dino fossile Please let me know what you guys think,
  21. Found in Lance Creek formation in Wyoming, late Cretaceous. Need help ID'ing this predator tooth. Measurements are 3cm long x 1.8cm wide x 1.2cm thick. Serrations present on top and bottom of tooth.
  22. Found in Lance Creek formation in Wyoming, late Cretaceous. Need help ID'ing this predator tooth. Measurements are 2.6cm long x 1.2cm wide x .7cm thick. Faint serrations present on top and bottom of tooth.
