    Dromaeosaurid anterior

    From the album: Hell Creek Formation Microsite

    An anteriorly-situated tooth from a juvenile dromaeosaurid.
  2. Hi TFF, I am a Dromaeosauridae enthusiast and have been collecting online for a little while now. I want to thank the members here for getting me educated on so many aspects of fossil teeth identification. I want to share my small collection in the hopes this is helpful for some of you in the future. Your critical input is highly appreciated, as always! #1 First up, one of my treasures, a robust Deinonychus antirrhopus tooth from the Cloverly Fm. A big thanks to @StevenJD for letting go of this one – much appreciated! Note the asymmetry in the placement of the carinae, best noticeable from the top view. #2 Representing the Judith River Fm., a cornerstone of my collection, a 1st left premaxillary tooth of Dromaeosaurus albertensis. I just love the way the mesial carina ‘folds’ onto the lingual surface. #3 Another premaxillary tooth from the Judith River Fm., a Zapsalis abradens with prominent ridges. The mesial carina has a nice twist, the cross section looks rather symmetrical, so likely not a 1st or 2nd premax. Distal denticles are hooked towards the tooth tip, but no mesial denticles are present and the tooth is not recurved. So, for now it is labeled as cf. Zapsalis abradens after Currie and Evans 2019, but could eventually be re-labeled as Saurornitholestes langstoni.

    Raptor claw? Or croc?

    Hello, Found an online sale of an indet. Raptor claw, see the link below. edit: it is something that somebody else has for sale and I decided not to purchase it. Found it unfair to have it listed here as potential fake without any clear answer. Therefore I deleted the photo’s, best answer is a link to similar fossils, so thats the informative value of this post.

    Moroccan "Dromeosaur" tooth ?

    Hello, i saw this already sold theropod tooth today, which was listed as "possible Dromeosaur tooth from morocco". Was it really one ? Or just another Abeli, Carch, or Noasaur tooth ? And If someone can still find the artikle about how scientists used AI to filter all morrocan theropod teeth to find possible Deltadromeus teeth, migth Link it here in the replies ? Well, lets see what you think this tooth belonged to.

    Wood or bill/ beak/nail?

    Hello! Found in NW Alabama, Franklin county, near creek. Not sure if these are fossils, but there is a perfect hole near wide edge of the larger "half". Yes, the photos are of 2 peices that appear similar/same, as with the upper and lower bills/beaks of birds..Red Color from lighter can b seen in photos. Could it/they be from Native American adornment, or even much further back in time?? thanks! Chris
  6. Hello. I have another unknown tooth. I bought this and it was labeled as a raptor tooth. I have heard that this is a common occurrence. Upon searching the internet I found that it is in fact not a raptor tooth, however I found many things that looked similar. I came to the conclusion it was either a Abelisaurid or Carcharodontasaurid. Is it either of them or something else completely. If someone can tell me the exact species that would be great. If needed, when I am back from my trip to my country place, I can upload more images.

    Raptor Claw

    Peace River find. I think it is a Raptor claw. Would appreciate any other possibilities. Some questions: Can we tell left or right foot ? Which digit (Obviously not hooked)? What Raptor? and finally.. Is it modern? @Auspex

    Acheroraptor tooth

    From the album: Hell Creek Formation Microsite

    Acheroraptor was a small theropod (dromaeosaurid) "raptor" that lived in the same paleo-ecosystem as T. rex. Its blade-like serrated teeth possess diagnostic apicobasal ridges.

    Acheroraptor tooth

    From the album: Hell Creek / Lance Formations

    A small Acheroraptor tooth with diagnostic longitudinal ridges. Found in a channel deposit.

    Hill County Raptor tooth?

    Hello everyone! Here is a nice raptor tooth from Montana, JRF Hill county. Another collector and I were wondering what the species is likely. Especially with those ridges. Back then bought as a Saurornitholestes.
  11. I've got a few bones that I've been scratching my head over for a couple days. They are from the Hell Creek Formation in Garfield County, Montana. They're extremely thin and hollow, and only one seems to have undergone some compression. I'm including measurements with the photos below. Curious to hear what you all think.

    Late Pleistocene bird claws

    These two claws were collected from tar seeps in Kern County, California by the late George Lee back in the 70's. I have seen bird claws identified to species before and would like to know if these two can be as well. A friend has a variety of fossils from there and asked me about these today. The larger claw is 31 mm from tip to most distant part of the back of it. The other is 27 mm. Thanks, Jess
  13. ThePhysicist


    From the album: Hell Creek / Lance Formations

    A small tooth from a Dromaeosaurid "raptor" dinosaur, located in an anterior position in the mouth. Found in a channel deposit.
  14. Fast. Intelligent. Deadly. The "Raptor" is perhaps one of the most famous dinosaur today thanks to Jurassic Park. To many people's surprise however, raptors are heavily feathered and nimbler than movies would have you believe. The Jurassic Park Velociraptor was merely the size of coyote in real life! In fact, their proper family name is 'Dromaeosaurid'. The largest species was Utahraptor, and it grew to the size of a grizzly bear! Dromaeosaurid fossils have been found all over the world. They first appeared during the Cretaceous, though isolated teeth have been found in the mid-Jurassic. Allow me to present my humble collection of Dromaeosaurid teeth. First up, from Cloverly Formation, one of my pride and joy from @hxmendoza A dromaeosaurid from Aguja Formation. I am seeing more Aguja fossils showing up, but dromaeosaurid teeth are still rare. Now, for the dromaeosaurids from the famous Hell Creek Formation. Some of them probably lived alongside T. rex. A big shout-out for @Troodon for getting me started on dromaeosaurids with this very first Acheroraptor!

    Two Hell Creek teeth

    Hi, A pair of teeth I am interested in. The first one, 1.25 inches. Sold as a dromaeosaur tooth from Hell Creek. Is it actually a Nano? It seems quite big for a raptor from Hell Creek. If a raptor, it would be Dakotaraptor because of the size? Next one is a Tyrannosaur-- just over 1 inch. Is it Tyrannosaur or another large raptor tooth? I have sent seller a message about the exact location -- county and stuff.

    Raptor tooth or Abelisaur?

    Hi! I would really love some help with Identifying this please. It's thought to be Raptor but now there is doubt.. Found in Taouz, Morocco. Thanks in advance

    Paravians of Hell Creek

    From the album: Hell Creek / Lance Formations

    Even in the final years of the non-avian dinosaurs, the paravians remained diverse, with many species represented in the famed Hell Creek formation.
  18. So I have had this in my collection for long time was told its a claw just not sure fro. What species it is from Was dug up near the kem kem basin in morocco near a barite mine can anyone help its the bigger piece

    Dromeosaur or Tyrannosaur tooth?

    Hello! I’ve had this tooth for a while now and always labeled it as nannotyrannus, since that’s what I bought it as. It’s about .8” long, supposed to be from the Hell Creek formation but no other locality was listed, so I understand an ID might not be 100%. I was just wondering broadly if it was a tryannosaur or dromeosaur tooth. At first I thought tyrannosaur because it’s kind of thick for its size and has large serrations. It also looks like it has “pinching” on only the right side in the base picture which made me think it was a nanno tooth specifically. Then I saw a picture posted on the forum of a similar sized tooth with the same profile listed as dromeosaur. Any help would be appreciated thanks!
  20. hi, I got this raptor egg from China. Looks to good to be true, is it a fake?
  21. Hello, I found this listed as a 0.31” Acheroraptor tooth from the Hell Creek Formation in Montana. I messaged the seller asking about the locality/specific area it was found in and am waiting to hear back. Does it look like a genuine raptor tooth?
  22. Hello, This is my first time posting so I hope it follows all the rules! My sister loves archaeology and paleontology so I wanted to get her a fossil for her birthday. Her absolute favorite dinosaur is the velociraptor so I’ve been looking at raptor teeth and came across this one that claims to be from a velociraptor (the only one I’ve found that’s that specific genus). It says it’s from the Judith River Formation in Montana. Does it look like an authentic raptor tooth and is it possible to know what type of raptor it is? Thanks for your help! 5BE3CE06-4AA8-45B8-A703-A5266E5AD5E1.webp 5DFD9BC7-B4F7-4F01-8E0D-CAFE74F64E0E.webp 3CE0E0D8-4AAF-4E84-AB10-4B10163FC419.webp

    I bought this tooth and in my limited knowledge I'm not sure it's a raptor, I do not have a big collection of teeth to compare it to, so I figured I'll ask the experts. Hellcreek formation, MT. 4 denticles/mm it's the same both sides, 13.6mm CH, 4.2mm CBW, 9.07mm CBL both sides denticles look the same to me. If any more pictures are needed, I can get them. also sorry about the photos I'm getting a better magnifying device, my little coin one isn't too good for big over all pictures.
