  1. 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
  3. 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
  5. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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 bone to identify

    Hello Sorry, I'm rewriting this message in English. Considering the effectiveness of the responses to yesterday's post, I am submitting another one to you. Also found in the continental interlayer of the Kem kem plateau in Morocco. Bone density seems to be attributable more to a dinosaur than to a crocodilian ... A bone in a joint (carpus?). Does the shape of this bone inspire anyone? Thank you in advance for your answers.
  11. Here is a lovely isolated theropod tooth from USA - the seller lacked all locality data, although he believed it may have been from the Morrisons formation. This lovely tooth is just over 2.5cm long and has 15 serrations per 5mm on the distal side (DC) however serrations on the mid-centre off the medial side have not been preserved. It would be lovely to ID this to some level other than theropod if possible. Serrations on the mesial side only go down 2/3rds of the tooth. There is some restoration to the tooth - if any more photos would be beneficial please let me kno
  12. Just bought these little beauties. Were sold as 'dromaeosauridae sp.' finger bones. Ad also named them deltadromeus. Now, I'm aware of the difficulties with ID'ing Kem Kem theropod but I like buying cheap-ish fossils and then trying to figure out what they really are. Part of the fun I guess. Total length of both bones is ~63mm. Not sure if the arrangement is correct, bones seem to fit well. They're small, which makes me wonder if they're theropod at all. Did look into deltadromeus, found the gualicho shinyae which might be the best reference point it seems. Bones do look like some of the
  13. Hi everyone, I have a theropod teeth that I need help identifying. This tooth first came from a reseller from Morocco in 2019 (before Talsint teeth flooded the market). He promises this came from a Boulmane digger, and calls it a Jurassic tooth. Irregardless of whether this is a Jurassic tooth or not, the reseller is reliable when it comes to locality I have tried identifying this tooth but all my best guess is that it's a Megalosauridae indet. Here are its info: CH: 26.1 mm CBL: 13.7 mm CBW: 8 mm Distal denticle count: 13/5mm on

    Another abingdon "theropod" vert

    Hi, anyone able to help with this? It's sold as Theropod, from Abingdon. 10.5 x 8 x5 cm. Unfortunately it's very weathered and has been squashed and distorted during fossilization, so it seems difficult to ID. Personally, I think it's been misidentified. At 5 cm, it seems much too thin. Secondly, I'm looking at some drawings of theropod and megalosaur verts and they seem to bend inwards a lot in the middle (not sure of the actual term for it) with large centrums and going narrow in the middle. But if someone else can take a second look, just to con

Every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, but it is always important to do your own research. This guide is merely a snapshot of information taken from many scientific publications. I am not an expert on eggs, rather I just love sharing what little I have learned over the years, what science has learned over the years.

    Niger Theropod

    I have here a theropod tooth from I-n-Abanghaghit, Niger. It was labeled as Rugops. However, I was suspicious after obtaining it. I consulted with someone who deals in Niger material, who noted that this locality is Jurassic and thus it could not be Rugops. I read Troodon's thread on identifying Niger theropods. Per that guide and other sources, it seems that the only option would be Afrovenator based on that locality (I think I-n-Abanghaghit is synonymous with Agadez but not completely sure on that). This tooth is 0.85" long. Distal serrations count is 10.2 / 5 mm. Me

    Another Lance fm. Tooth

    This past summer's trip to Wyoming provided no shortage of interesting and bizarre finds. This tooth was found at a channel deposit in the Lance fm. and is about 5 mm in length and 2 mm in width. It appears to be a theropod tooth based on the overall morphology, but lacks serrations unlike the all the non avian theropods in the formation. I'm not sure if the serrations were worn off or were never there in the first place. Or perhaps based on the small size it belonged to a young individual with developing teeth. The theropod it most closely resembles in my opinion is Richardoestesia, as it's o
  20. I have here a Spinosaurus tooth, 4" in length. It has the repair close to the base. I'd love to know if anyone can spot restorations. I don't see any. Thank you, Bellamy
  21. Hi all, I had posted about this tooth years ago and the conclusion back then was that its preservation was too poor for any proper ID. I am hoping that with new information we can at least determine if this is a crocodile or theropod. I discovered today that this tooth preserved some serrations First up, this tooth was acquired from a source with many Mongolian material. He called this an Alioramus tooth but I am not comfortable calling it that yet Secondly, a museum curator (who has handled Mongolian material) examined this tooth in person. He concluded this tooth was

    Torvosaurus

    I have here a theropod tooth tip from the Morrison Formation of Moffat County, Colorado. It's 1/2". The claim is that it's Torvosaurus based on the serrations. Is that a definitive way to identify this as Torvosaurus as opposed to another theropod? @Troodon Thank you, Bellamy

    Weird vertebrae

    I found these two vertebrae together in the Dinosaur Park Formation of Alberta. I’m wondering what they might be? I’m suspecting rather Champsosaur, turtle, or juvenile theropod. Any insight into the identity of these two elements would be great, thanks! @Troodon
  24. Hola a todos. He estado viendo publicaciones durante mucho tiempo con dientes de nanotyrannus. Lo que me gustaría saber es si usted, que tiene más experiencia en la recolección de fósiles, podría identificarlos como pertenecientes a ese dinosaurio o no. De antemano muchas gracias. (Translated: Hello everyone. I've been looking at posts for a long time with nanotyrannus teeth. What I would like to know is whether you, who have more experience in collecting fossils, could identify them as belonging to that dinosaur or not. Beforehand thank you very much.)
  25. I have here Carcharodontosaurus teeth from two sellers. No restorations are declared. However, I'm suspicious of both and would appreciate more opinions on them. Here's the first one, I believe the tip is restored. It's 3.78"
