    Help ID?

    Found yesterday in the Kansas River. I'm thinking it's probably just a button buck skull cap. Although I really want it to be from an antilocaprid. But I thought its worth the post for me because it's my first part of a skull Ive ever found in the river. But I can't distinguish personally. I'm not the best at telling Kansas river modern stained bones from permineralized bones sometimes too, and I understand if it's unidentifiable beyond cervid even. Thanks

    4-H Geology ID question

    Hello Everyone. My grandaughter is in 4-H Geology and we found this specimen in Southwest Kansas. We have no idea what it is or how to label it for her exhibit box. Any help you could give us would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  3. Hello all. We were recently on 4-H trip to Greenwood County Kansas and stopped at a roadcut in the Kanwaka Shale. We have several questions, the first one is below. We found this crinoid stem with an encrusting Bryazoa on it. I believe this is Fistulipora but would like a more positive ID. Any help is appreciated
  4. In the Blue Hill Shale Member of the Carlile Shale formation, you can sometimes find concretions that have very colorfully preserved ammonites. The concretions are usually about the size of a golf ball to baseball. They are smacked with a hammer to see if there is something inside, as many are empty. The concretions are extremely hard, but there is usually a weak spot between the ammonite and the super hard limestone. I recently picked up a CP air scribe, so I thought I'd try it out on a "mud ball" that had a little of a Scaphites carlilensis exposed. The outside of the concretion that is
  5. Not sure if these are trace fossils. The rock looks like a cast of the sea floor.
  6. Rod shaped structures with central cavity, shape reminded me of urchin spines. Bryozoan and coral in background. I thought about weathered coral but the structures seem too straight. Smaller rock with similar but larger structure on back.

    Cretoxyrhina tooth (3)

    From the album: Sharks

    A gorgeous tooth from one of my favorite sharks! The enamel isn't polished - the chalk preserves its shine extremely well - it's as shiny as when it fell out of the animal's mouth!

    Cretoxyrhina tooth (2)

    From the album: Sharks

    A beautiful tooth from one of my favorite sharks. This one is extra special because of the self-inflicted bite mark - a gash seen on the left in lingual view. Apparently their bite was strong enough to cut their own teeth!

    Hi from KS

    My name is Jonathan and I just started fossil hunting with my 4 yo son, Gabe. Here's some shells we found at a flint hills rest stop: 1. Cluster of similar shells: 2a. Corals. 2b. Close up 3a. Larger brachiopod (per posts below) 3b. Same rock, probably same type of brachiopod.

    New finds from the Kansas River

    Found some interesting fossils with my wife and boys yesterday. 1. Guessing these are gastropod shells (all replaced with crystals) 2. I think these may be crinoid stalk fragments 3. Millions of sub millimeter round fossils (and brachiopod) Wife: I found a rock with the wavy sea fossil (bryozoan) and petrified wood. Me: that doesn't make sense, oh, it's concrete. I guess Kansas has so many fossils we use them as filler 4. Not sure what this is and didn't have a ruler handy
  11. I found this maxilla piece on the Kansas River today. I'm thinking it's some sort of pig ancestor, and hoping it's not just an old domestic pig's. But it seems mineralized to me. Also, the teeth are pretty worn so it's hard for me to ID them. I saw this topic And thought it's too difficult for me to ID based on the worn teeth. But maybe someone else here can help? Please let me know if more photos would be of use as well. Thanks in advance.

    Cardabiodon?

    I recently acquired this nice little tooth from the Carlile Shale of north central Kansas, which I believe is Turonian in age. It looks like Cardabiodon ?venator to me, but I don't have much experience with the genus. What do others think? The tooth measures 27.17 mm along the slant and is 21.66 mm wide.

    Kiowa tooth

    It's pretty obvious to me it's a fossil tooth: but from what? Kiowa formation and Albian. Approximately 1.1cm long.
  14. My daughter likes to investigate the rocks at our local post office and found this one that we thought might be a fossil. These are a mix of 1-3” landscaping rocks and I don’t know the source. Can anyone help us ID it? Thank you for your expertise!

    Squalicorax sp.

    Recently I purchased these two Squalicorax sp. tooths from an auction website and both are currently on the way. I have a few questions about identification since I know very little about shark tooths and also please correct any misidentifications. Seller A sold me this tooth and it was listed as Squalicorax hartwelli. It is collected from Niobrara formation in western Kansas. Is Squalicorax hartwelli considered a variation of Squalicorax falcatus? Do you agree with seller A's identification above? Seller B sold me this tooth and it was li

    Another Kansas River Find

    HELP! My friend found this on the sandbar today. I’ve never seen anything like it! Feels like bone…. Any ideas?
  17. defectiveninja

    Please ID these!

    All of these were found on gravel bars on Elm Creek in north-eastern Kansas, as we kayak on it a lot.
  18. defectiveninja

    Please ID these!

    I am pretty sure these are claws, but I am not at all sure. The first one had a tip ,like the drawn lines indicate, but some jerk broke it off. Doesn’t down the shaft on the last one look like Fluking?
  19. Not sure if this goes here or in Fossil ID but I’ll post here… This is one of my latest online purchases, and one I had to snag because if this is what it’s supposed to be it’s a neat piece. But seeing as I can’t personally verify it myself, I thought I’d post here. This vertebra was being sold as Trinacromerum sp. While I doubt that just a centrum like this is identifiable down to genus, I would like to know whether or not this really is a Polycotilid vertebra. I think it’s likely because it’s a very sizable bone that’s not mosasaur, but just want to check. This fossil is, according

  21. It's from Kansas and is Late Cretaceous age.
  22. Dear Forum members, A few years ago I bought this piece from a fellow collector. The description mentioned that it is probably a Platecarpus sp. atlas and axis vertebrae, Niobrara Fm. Gove Co. Kansas. I think that this is acutally the supraoccipital, epioccipital, basisphenoid and several other skull parts. I do not know if this is indeed from a Platecarpus species? if so, which species could this be? I'd like to know whether this piece is Coniacian, Santonian or Campanian in age. Perhaps the preservation already can point in a direction. the fossils are all very flatt

    Enchodus sp. tooth

    From the album: Kansas Cretaceous

    5mm long Collected in the Niobrara Chalk in Northeast Lane Co. KS. Suggestions/corrections on the ID are welcome

  24. Traveling from Minnesota to Texas next week Take I35-W down and roughly following the Mississippi back up. Any recommendations for fossil or paleo related Museums to visit or fossil hunting trips/locales along this loop? I am mostly interested in vertebrate fossil hunting but would really be up for any good suggestions.
