    Cow or bison bones- oklahoma

    Bones found in Northwest Oklahoma rural farmland. Cow?
  2. FINALLY getting around to posting about my first time ever fossil hunting in Oklahoma! Went on an extended weekend with the Paleontological Society of Austin to a variety of locales in Central OK - places I have heard about, read about and dreamed about going! I finally made it! And it was so very worth the drive, even if I did end up with a stupid cold the last two days (the drive home was a little....weird. Cold "fugue" makes for interesting driving- I really don't remember much of it, which is either good or bad....) But the FOSSILS! I've never hunted the Ordovician and Siluria

    Tooth identification…?

    I have found this tooth back around christmas of 2021 in the creeks of Fort Gibson, Oklahoma and i just cannot seem to find out what it is. i’ve tried reverse image search and google but nothing pops up. My grandpa, who knows everything about the wilderness has no idea what it is. we were looking for arrowheads but i found this instead.
  4. I’m planning my return trip to Lake Texoma and I was wondering if y’all had any suggestions for tools to bring. Preferably batter-powered (no generator) and powerful enough to excavate large ammonites from hard limestone. Explosives, battery acid, and hydrochloric acid are out of the question. I’d settle for gas-powered tools, but only as a last resort.

    I believe these were found in the Lake Texoma area. Any suggestions on what they are and how I might remove some of the sediment would be much appreciated. Thank you!

    Billings Surprise

    Had a nice trip with a local club and had a great day collecting malachite and petrified wood. As a bonus surprise gift...... I also found two (what at first glance I think are Permian era reptile teeth.

    Hunton Group Road Intersections

    Attached is a KML file that is the result of mashing the OpenStreetMap road data for Oklahoma up against the Hunton Group polygons from the USGS geological map for Oklahoma. I exported the lines from the roads where there was an intersection between the two. Some of the roads from the OSM data aren't accurate, and others are phantom roads or inaccessible trails. But overall, I think it's accurate enough to be useful. Hopefully others will find it useful too. Please let me know if there are other fossiliferous formations in the state for which you would like to have this type of mashup.
  8. Hey, So I was planning on going on a fossil hunt this summer in Oklahoma. I thought "Black Cat Mountain" would be a great place to start but I can't find anything on how to contact the owner "Bob Carrol". I've been on their website which has a phone number but it says its no longer in use. If anyone has contact information like a email or phone number that would be great. Anyway thank you for reading this message and have a nice day. Sincerely, Carson Betancourt

    Waurika Permian Fossil or not?

    Going through Permian matrix. We have found many teeth and other identifiable microfossils. I have also found many of these metallic looking dark rocks. Are they bone fragments, or partially melted rocks? Thank you.
  10. Hello, I recently visited a Permian site near Waurika Pond and collected microfossils for my students to explore back in the classroom. Is there a guide to identifying these fossils out there somewhere or is piecemeal searching here the way to go. If not, I will be making the one page guide over the summer have it to offer. Any help on something simple for my elementary aged students would be much appreciated. IMG_0064.DNG IMG_0065.DNG

    Trilobite body part or not?

    To trilobite experts: I found some partial exoskeletons of trilobites at Black Cat mountain in Oklahoma, that after cleaning and prepping, appear to have an appendage attached that kind of looks like a head. But looking at complete trilobites, I don't see this "head" anywhere. I found 3 of them like this. Photos of two of them are attached. Is this "head" even a part of the trilobite, and if it is, what exactly is it? Thanks for any help.
  14. Back in January I decided to check out the Ammonite Beach at Lake Texoma for the first time. The site is well known for its giant Duck Creek ammonites that can be found scattered all over the shoreline. The weather was surprisingly not that bad despite it being the winter. The water level was quite low and there was plenty of good ground to search along. During my time there, I had some success in finding my own ammonites which gave me an excuse to finally put my rock hammer to use. I stumbled upon some echinoids, but none of them were in all that great of condition, so I might need to head ba

    Lake Texoma

    Is there a significant difference in regulations regarding fossil collecting on the shores of Lake Texoma and the Red River, depending on which side you are on? Texas vs Oklahoma?
  16. OK, I missed the Fossil Friday post by a day. The cold weather lately has kept me indoors and away from fossil exploration, so here is a partial prep of a partial ammonite from the Lake Texhoma Duck creek fm. Prepping something no true separation of "fossil" and matrix is quite challenging, especially considering how well they can, at times, weather out and become separated naturally. The matrix seems to be getting harder to separate as I move toward smaller sections. I can make out that this does have the inner whorls , so I dont want to blow them out. This has really slowed me down on t

    Swimming Creek Find

    A year or two ago I visited a swimming creek in Oklahoma with family (I can't tell you which one for the life of me). The first thing I did after stepping out of the SUV was pick up what looked like an impression fossil off of the ground (the shoreline of the creek was all pebbles). It must have been sheer luck, because I couldn't find anything else the whole time I was there. My guess is that it's a chrinoid stem. Am I close?

    Fossils or pareidolia?

    As a child, I collected a lot of "fossils". Whether it was from a campsite, a park, a playground, or my own yard, I would pick up rocks and declare them to be fossils. I still have several of the rocks I collected laying around. Most of them, as you would guess, are just oddly shaped rocks. But miniature me may have occasionally picked out things of genuine value. So I'm going to dump a few in this thread and see if I really have anything worth keeping. Note that while I can't remember where I found these all those years ago, they're most likely from within 2 hours of Tulsa, Oklahoma, since th

    Is this anything? in Oklahoma

    Found this in a big boulder along a creek in eastern Oklahoma. Is this a fossil, and if so...what is it? Thanks for your help!

    Lake Texoma, round 2.

    Alright folks, just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of our fateful trip... but if your in a TLDR mood.... Fossils get real heavy, real fast, and we found a lot. I had a rare full weekend off work, so my son and I went back to hunt the lake Texoma shoreline for a 2 day exploration. We started off in the same beach we found last time (that I dubbed "Echinoid Beach"), but construction had changed everything and made it much harder to hunt. The worst part is that last time we left a small pile when moving everything back to the truck. I knew where it was, but when we a

    Spiked Ordovician Arc fro OK

    One of the great things about hash plates is how much there is to see when you focus in close. I learned another great thing when I noticed a crack in this one from the marine, Viola formation of Pontotoc County Oklahoma. When I finally decided to bust it open it was like taking a whole new fossil hunt from the comfort of home. Most of it is the usual brachiopods and bryozoans but this caught my eye once I got a really close look. The scale is millimetres so this thing is tiny. I have no clue what it could be so help me out if you can.

    Ft Gibson Dam Plant Fossil

    Hi, I am having trouble identifying what appears to be a plant fossil. I found it recently at Ft. Gibson Dam in Oklahoma. The most tell-tale markings are in the lower right hand corner of the attached photo. Any I.D. will be much appreciated. Also does anyone know the formation? Pitkin Ls, from the Mississippian is at the dam, but my ROCKD app had the formation as Atoka, which is Pennsylvanian. Thanks to PetrolPete for guiding me to this site.

    Permian Wellington fm Teeth

    Hey all. I recently got back from a trip to the Wellington formation in Oklahoma, and I ended up with approximately 40 teeth. (Most of which were Xenacanthus teeth) I ended up with quite a few bits and pieces I couldn’t identify. To avoid overly cluttering one thread, I will post others later. These three are shown next to cm measurement, and are from the Wellington formation near Waurika Oklahoma. I will provide more photos as needed, it has been overcast and dark so the lighting has been more difficult. Thank you for your time!
