  1. As of 5/5/16, this large specimen of Late Cretaceous Amber Resin has received a new home in the McClung Museum at the University Of Tennessee (Knoxville). It is from my collection of West Tennessee Amber and is Campanian. This was my 4th-5th largest specimen from my collection.
  2. I'm extremely excited to announce that two days ago at 3:30 a newly discovered dinosaur vertebra was recovered from a Late Cretaceous Campanian formation in West Tennessee. This is only the 4th. dinosaurian vertebra to ever be found in Tennessee! It's also the first dinosaur vertebra I've ever found in my life. The specimen is from the tail section on the vertebrae column of a Hadrosaur. The neural canal and neural arch are still plainly visible. Specimen is missing the neural spine and also possible Chevron bone. This is a historic achievement for paleontology in Tennessee and here is the fir
  3. Anyone who has searched the internet for pictures of the 5 dinosaur bones that were recovered from the Cretaceous of West Tennessee knows what I'm talking about: there simply isn't ANY photos available to view the all the specimens, with the exception of a PDF file wrote in 1991 by Mr. Bryan from UT Knoxville. That said, the bones aren't to scale in the PDF and some PDF files of the paper don't even retain the pictures. An exhaustive internet search for the material only pulls up a few pictures of a bone or two plus one photo of a few associated fragments. Here I present to you as many photos
  4. There I was pulling up to this building Tuesday morning, about to have a meeting with the State Geologist Ronald Zurawski. Traveling there, all I used to go off of was the address, so you can imagine my surprise when I find out I'm parking in Beside the Tennessee Supreme Court, and this huge building is the place that I have a meeting in...then I find out it's on the 12 floor or course. There I am pulling up with a wooden crate full of material, and 2 extra large specimens. I know I had 100 pd. Anyway... After two breaks, I made it through the front door where the security guard helped me plac

    Unknown Tennessee Cretaceous Botanicals

    This is a topic I've been meaning to create in the I.D. section for some time now. Hopefully it will be an easier way for interested members to access information regarding my paleobotanical materials. I likewise encourage anyone with Cretaceous Tennessee specimens to post in this topic, to create a better understanding of botanical fossils/palaeoecology/palaeoclimatology, ect. from the cretaceous of Tennessee. I intend to add new materials to this topic for years to come,to ensure a way for researchers to view specimens easily, a benifical concept considering my materials are scattered t
  6. Shells being recovered in other states in the Coffee Sand, Tennessee is the exception. Leaching of the sediments at a later time is thought to have been the general factor. Strangely as it seems, here iron has wholly replaced some unknown shells. My phone camera not being that good, it's difficult to determine in the pics, but very detailed surfaces of the outside of the shells can be saw w/ the naked eye. Also present on the specimen of sandstone appear to be perhaps some type of trackway(?). These shells truely are the first shells discovered in the Coffee Sand of Tennessee that I am aware o

    Need I.d. For Cretaceous Vertebra Please.

    These are bad photos I know, I'm just looking for a general classification....Dinosaur or Marine Reptile. It sure is looking Dinosaurish to me. It displays a flat surface area on each face. In the photos, the top surface is flat , and is what I take to be the neurospine canal. The vert is longer than wide. Recovered today. Looks like a Hadrosauridae vert to me. If this doesn't look Dinosaurian to you, please share with me your thoughts on what Marine Reptile you think it may be.
  8. This Monday morning about 10:00, The alarms went down in The Tennessee River Museum,external frame, retaining clips, and glass plate removed to the exhibit which housed Mr. Wade's famously historic Specimen of Amber. That day had been prearranged & was preparatory for a Meeting in Nashville the next day. I was actually allowed to remove the specimen out of the display, privately inspect, take measurements of, and photograph it. What an amazing feeling it was to actually roll it around in my hand and closely view it in detail...I will always remember it. For those who may not know, that pi

    Fossil Sea Cucumber?

    These are pics sent to me by my cousin who was running a dozer and uncovered this fossil. There are Silurian and Devonian limestones in his area. I have also read that first Sea Cucumbers made their appearance in the Devonian. So I told him my best "guess" was "the fossilized endoskeleton remains of a probable Devonian time period Sea Cucumber"... I'm very unsure because those periods aren't my main study. Did I say wrong?
  10. Starting a thread on them good'ol Exogryas, as time goes i'll steadily be adding to it for all the Exogrya lovers out there. I have lots of this material, just haven't been able to get to most of it yet for preping. I got the big ones, the little ones, the tiny ones, ones that are so riddled with holes they look like swiss cheese, the ugly, the stunning, and the average...lets start with the finest Exogrya i've ever seen, it was previously posted in a thread entitled "A Museum Grade Exogrya." I've never yet saw one on display that looked better than this.....most aren't even on its level.
  11. This is a bone i recovered right at the Sardis/Demopolis contact about 4 years ago. It seems to have been right at the upper Sardis, and immediately below contact. I've always thought it unusual for it to be of a whitish color. 5 of the 6 confirmed Dinosaurian bones that have been found in Tennessee were supposed to have been found in the same area of the contact...and true enough, lots of those D-bones were of a whitish color...also several of the frags found with them. Another thing remarkable about this bone is it's density! For it's size, it's so heavy that i've actually questioned if it h
  12. Last year i collected the following Late Cretaceous Campanian specimens from a lignite layer in Henderson co., TN that has proven itself to be special to me. This is my first and only whole cone....what a sweet lil'baby! Was thinkng A sequoia species, but lets see what the experts say, I treated it w/ a preservative because i had to, the lignite was partially replaced w/ marcasite which would have soon deteoriated if left untreated. The seed & seed pod i'm not sure go together, but the seed sure looks like it may fit in something like that....the seed also stunningly looks like a redwood
  13. On this day, a survey of the said formation was made by myself and the property owners. The potential of what is there is as vast as acreage. Many glorious and illustrious items are there waiting for the right time to be shown to the world! The property is so vast that no where near a 1/4 was inspected, and during which the actual outcrops were passed up for the most part,while trying to get an idea of "where to start." This truely is a geologist's paradise! briefly while @ one exposure, these specimens were recovered, i presume the small one to be a "baby" Baculites....sweet little dude. It'
