  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

    Atlas Mountains theropod tooth

    Hello, thoughts on this? It is described as theropod. From the El Mers Group. Boulmane Province Jurassic. 1.25 inches. Seller says the tip might be repaired. Now, is it as described--location wise? Apparently there is a Kem-Kem related Cretaceous deposit also in the Atlas Mountains, so some teeth described as Jurassic actually aren't? So, is this a Jurassic one, and can anyone possibly narrow it down to a more specific species? Also, any signs of fakeness or restoration? there is a fair bit of matrix on, which I know is a red flag with Kem Kem fossils. But i

    Moroccan Abelisaurid tooth?

    Hi! I've been eyeing these supposed Abelisaurid teeth from Morocco (Kem Kem beds?), but I'm unsure if they are what they're labelled as. Are these two Abelisaur teeth? Or are do they belong to another theropod in the formation? (Mostly being confused with how one differentiates KK "raptor" teeth from true abelisaur teeth) Tooth A: Images 1 to 4 Tooth B: Images 5 to 8 I've read @Troodon's fantastic guide to Kem Kem teeth. However, as a very amateur fossil collector, I'm only able to identify but the only feature I am able to identify as abelisaurid is the mesial side being curv

    Unknown Theropod Toe Bones

    Hello, I surface collected these two associated and sequential toe bones from the Horseshoe Canyon formation, but can't quite get a definitive ID on them. After a bit of research they appear to correspond most closely with Albertosaurus, but I hope to get a second or third opinion before I label them. I know that theropod toe bones can be tricky, but I'm hoping that the claw has some diagnostic features. Thanks! Bone 1: Bone 2:

    Hell Creek Vertebra

    Thanks for taking the time to check this out. The vert is ID'ed as Dromaeosaurus from Hell Creek Fm, Powder River County. I've been having a frustrating time trying to make better sense of this, since, as for as I know, there have been no Dromaeosaurus IDs in HC. Are any of you able to shed light on the likelihood of it being dromaeosaurid and anything beyond that? The measurements are 1.875" long * 1" wide * 1.625" tall. (I have a vert centrum ID'ed as Dromaeosaurus from a Judith River Fm and it's only about 0.8" * 0.4*0.5. Position may well explain the huge size difference, but I'm not sure

    Pectinodon tooth

    From the album: Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    Another shot of the Pectinodon tooth featured earlier in this album, this specimen was found by my dad and is one of two Troodontid teeth in my collection.

    Are these tracks??

    My husband purchased this landscaping rock in a pallet from a Bath/Bethlehem, PA area supplier about 20 years ago. Most of the supplier’s stones are from Pennsylvania. I’m guessing this is sandstone??? I’ve been staring at this rock for sometime and before I place it back, I wanted to get some opinions if anyone sees any type of tracks on this rock? I feel like my fingers fit in the specimen very nicely. Can’t tell if I’m seeing 3, 4 or 5 “toes” ? Maybe I’m just an imaginative newbie. Thanking anyone in advance who looks at these photos.
  8. Hi everyone! As I have mentioned several times, being a 3D artist I am trying to move into the field of paleoart. Recently I have started modeling Ceratosaurus nasicornis in 3D, and I really want to make it as accurate and plausible as possible. Here is what I have got so far: a basic model done in 3ds Max. After this I am planning to take it to ZBrush and add more muscle definition, sking wrinkles, scales and other fine details. At this stage this is just the base and I would like to share it with you guys in order to receive some feedback from those who know their dinosaur anatomy. Did

    Small Lance Formation tooth

    Hi, I am interested in this tooth, and wondering if someone can narrow it down further. It is theropod tooth, from Weston County, Wyoming, Lance Formation. Waiting to hear back from seller on exact measurement, but included a photo of it near a tape measure. Thanks

    Dromaeosaurus albertensis Tooth

    This is my first attempt at getting a Dromeosaurus albertensis tooth from Judith River fm. I've largely been avoiding buying dromeosaurids like the plague that aren't Acheroraptor or Saurornitholestes. Provenance: Hill County, Montana The tooth is repaired, and I had to realigned it while restabilizing it with butvar. The tooth doesn't seem to perfectly fit together, or too much butvar ended up in-between. There does not appear to be any serrations on the mesial edge, and it doesn't appear to have any trace of serrations, at least not that I can see with a macroscope.
  12. Hi everyone. Tonight I'd Iike to share my most recent find: an absolutely tiny theropod tooth I found late at night sorting through what remains of the Aguja fm. matrix I purchased last year. I knew it would pay to be thorough and I was delighted to see the glint of enamel in a triangular shape eventually appear. Additionally, it has just taken the crown (no pun intended) for smallest theropod tooth in my collection, at only 2 mm in length and just over 1 mm in width. I'd be interested in reading your opinions on it's identity, I'm thinking either dromaeosaur or troodontid but I'm not sure.
  13. Hi all, I could not resist and took another shot on my quest to obtain a Dakotaraptor tooth. Here the tooth in question this time: It was found in the Hell Creek Formation, Garfield County. Measurements are: CH 1,41 cm - CBL 0,68 cm - CBW 0,3 cm - denticles per 5mm are 22 mesial and 19 distal. Note the slight tilt of the denticles towards the tip of the tooth. It's the best fit I have found so far, what deviates from the dePalma description is the shape of the base, it has a pinch, but I would not consider it rectangular. As a side note, it looks exactly like the base of Acheroraptor

    Theropod Indet. Tooth

    Hi folks! Received a new theropod indet. tooth today from the ever exciting Kem Kem. I was tentatively leaning towards a Carcharodontosaurid indet i.d., in line with morph type 3 in the always handy guide from @Troodon, but a few properties of the tooth have me wanting to get some extra opinions. Measurements: Crown Height: 27mm Crown Base Length: 10mm Cross Section: 7mm Mesial serrations: 5/mm (midline) Distal serrations: 3/mm (area just above damage at midline) There is a neat repair at the tip, a bit of d

    ID requested: Kem Kem tooth

    Hi everyone, I am currently eyeing this Theropod tooth from the Kem Kem beds in Morocco which is listed as a Deltadromeus tooth. Now I know that no teeth can be attributed to Deltadromeus as no cranial material has been found yet and I know that most teeth sold as Deltadromeus are in fact Abelisaurid teeth but this tooth seems way to curved to be Abelisaurid which could my eye instantly. So I was think if this might be a Dromaeosaurid tooth which while rare (and not yet officially described from Kem Kem) are somethings found and sold as Deltadromeus. Or might this be a small ant

    Please help identify

    I'm not sure what dinosaur this tooth belongs to from Morocco. It is not carchardotosaurus as it curves.

    Niger Theropod (+Fish) ID

    I recently purchased Niger fossils, and as expected, provenance was poor. I know it's ill-advised to buy fossils without good provenance, but I decided to take a gamble here. There was a sliver of hope in getting provenance as the seller could contact their source in Niger, but alas, outside Agadez is the best they got. The first fossil was sold as possible Kryptops, and 2nd just Theropod. I also got fish fossils from the same group. Elrhaz, Irhazer II, and Tiouraren appear to be the 3 formations in that region, and most fossils from Niger you often see for sale are sup
  18. Last year when things weren’t so complicated with COVID, we managed to have hunt for dinosaur footprints on the Yorkshire coast. Here’s the beach looking across to Scarborough in the distance. Here are some examples of the prints we came across: Nothing fantastic but all theropods. Heres one in a block that was carry-able: I finally got around to cutting the block to size today although it was freezing outside. So here you go, Theropod Footprint, circa 5 inches long. Middle Jur
  19. 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

    Kem Kem Toe Bone

    Hi, Any thoughts on the ID of this? It is labelled as a theropod toe bone from Kem Kem. 5cm x 4. The preservation seems odd to me. Most toe bones sold from Kem Kem seem to be that distinctive yellowish orange color. Is the theropod ID right, or is croc/reptile? Thanks for the help
  21. Hi all, thanks to @Troodon and his wonderful guidance I felt confident to purchase my first fossil claw. Now after thorough cleaning and proper documentation I wanted to get your input on a possible ID. The claw was found in the Hell Creek Fm., Garfield County, Montana. It's 1,82 cm (0.72'') in length and as you can see some of the tip is missing. The ventral surface is a bit flat so I guess it's not a Dromaeosaurid, but it also does not look like Anzu to me, but I am a claw-novice. Thanks for taking a look!

    Ksar Metlili theropod tooth

    Hi guys I picked up this tooth recently from Morroco. It’s approximately 6cm long (Just a little short) The tooth is said to come from the High atlas region in morroco, Talsint, Figuig province. The Ksar metlili formation (140-152 MYA) making the tooth Upper Jurassic - Lower Cretaceous. On mesial side 10 serrations per 5mm and distal 9 serrations per 5mm. Base of tooth is slightly damaged but looks ovalish. Some wear to top of tooth. I know some of these teeth actually come from the Dekker formation and could possibly be synonymous with the Kem Kem beds - so could the t
  23. Hi, just want to share with you one of my specimens and would like some opinion with regards to the potential ID of this theropod indet. tooth from the Yixian Formation in Liaoning province. As I have little familiarity with Chinese theropods and don't see a whole lot of real specimens reference pics available unlike their Moroccan or USA counterparts. Any input or insight from experts or experienced collector would be greatly appreciated. Here is the tooth in question and it's details that I gathered: The tooth measures about 1.5" measur

    Some different Dino displays

    We starting switching up our displays for the different styles of Dinosaur programs we do. The formation displays are great but we wanted to try this style for the Dino report programs. I like how these are shaping up and they help the flow of the presentations. We can switch fossils between the different displays and this gives us some flexibility. The first one completed is the Ceratopsians. We have two different decent sized Trike frill pieces and various teeth from Hell Creek. The Leptoceratops tooth is from Lance Creek and we have two JRF teeth. From the Aguja, w
  25. Hi, A while back I asked about the identification of this theropod foot claw, but it is still for sale and I am thinking of buying it. I wanted to ask now, if anyone can see any sort of repair work done on this claw (such as with the tip of the claw?), the seller says there is no restoration and I can't see any repair work on it, but I am never too confident with dinosaur claws. Thanks.
