Impressive! Have you tried to contact a paleontologist? How do you know it's 65 million years old? Perhaps basing the assumption on the age of that formation?

Extraordinary! I'd love to see more of this. :-)

The surrounding rock and sediment in that area of Hell Creek has historically been dated to 65 million years, the fossil itself was identified by a paleontologist at the Science Museum of Minnesota many years ago when I was about 15. I also had a Nice Cephalopod fossil that I found in Michigan's Upper Peninsula Identified at the same time which I will post soon.

Wow, very nice! Has the paleontologist managed to determine the family, genus or even species of that dinosaur?
