  1. Stylemys turtle restoration

    Any ideas on how to remove the green lichen staining from this partially weathered turtle without doing damage?
  2. Articulated Spine from WHAT?

    Right up front, I apologize for the poor quality of the photos. I left the vertebrae in place so these are the only photos I have. This series of 8 vertebrae were found weathered out in what I believe to be Whitewater, Brule in the general area of Interior South Dakota Badlands. I would love to have an ID!
  3. The weather was a pleasant 20c so great to hike hours in the badlands and perfect to meander through the hoodoos and tackle a few precarious slopes. Overhead in the clear blue skies there were thousands of birds migrating south. All fossils are catch and release. The Red Deer River. The river cuts through and exposes various Cretaceous deposits for a few hundred kilometers before joining the South Saskatchewan River. At this site it exposes the Scollard and Horseshoe Canyon formations. Further south the Red Deer exposes the Dinosaur Park and Oldman formations. Other formations are exposed by the Bow, South Saskatchewan, Milk River and Oldman Rivers..
  4. Stylemys nebrascensis in situ

    From the album Fossil Discoveries

    I wanted to capture an angle that evoked the feeling of encountering this animal's fossilized remains where it may have actually died.

  5. Stylemys nebrascensis in situ

    From the album Fossil Discoveries

    I visited the Badlands National Park in spring 2016 and photographed this badly weathered fossil turtle where it died some 30 million years ago. I subsequently informed a park ranger where I had seen the specimen.

  6. This jaw section is from the Nebraska Badlands. Found near a Hyaenodon jaw. I'm no expert. Anyone know what this is from? My first tentative guess is three toed horse...Any experts?
  7. Prehistoric horse jaw. Mesohippus.

    From the album Badlands, Nebraska megafauna.

    This mesohippus jaw was found near the Hyaenodon. Not sure of species yet but I believe it to be a three toed horse.
  8. Coprolite, possibly carnivore?

    From the album Badlands, Nebraska megafauna.

    A coprolite found in the same area as the Hyaenodon jaw. Looks like something I would find at the park walking the dog so am tentatively thinking its from a carnivore.
  9. Hyaenodon (horridus?) right jaw.

    From the album Badlands, Nebraska megafauna.

    Hyaenodon jaw found in the Nebraska Badlands. I believe it to be horridus but am no expert.
  10. Hyaenodon (horridus?) left jaw.

    From the album Badlands, Nebraska megafauna.

    Hyaenodon jaw found in the Nebraska Badlands. I believe it to be horridus but am no expert.
  11. Hyaenodon (horridus?) left jaw.

    From the album Badlands, Nebraska megafauna.

    Hyaenodon jaw found in the Nebraska Badlands. I believe it to be horridus but am no expert.
  12. I am studying geology. I could not identify K-Pg boundary within this picture. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cretaceous%E2%80%93Paleogene_boundary#mediaviewer/File:KT_boundary_054.jpg In addition, I have visited Horseshoe canyon, but is it possible to find T-Pg boundary in this picture? https://29b39c5a-a-62cb3a1a-s-sites.googlegroups.com/site/fkazumichi/home/english-fujii-kazumichi/Horseshoe%20formation.jpg?attachauth=ANoY7co1OJjZTF5XzOgS3an-tzNpf0UaK7ewt3I9fXKkNzQ277O3zaurGJru6nMwOsuqOzUMe7m3Ztslf795NdZRKcCcVJ7jiUV18K9MQtOar3ucC19o1lCPiGIJL22LKL-wRm-A3qbm4RkCeIFXHaPb2EVn3ap0G3b1pHFSVXy90zLMqgt4tXhTiLK7MOz-qxds3Zt0CPGeZQXuwdHS2-CR1auCDyPsi6UW4iYlbkxQbKMLkXjFaORoU0LWEG2PiXGDuYcfGk9V3XlBVU7L2IoecWvRMEL1Tw%3D%3D&attredirects=0 Thank you for your kindness.
  13. I purchased my copy at the Museum located at Fort Robinson, Nebraska. They have a book shop and a good variety of local interest books for sale. I also bought a book on the Nebraska and South Dakota Fairburn Agates, that are found north of Toadstool Park on top of the Cretaceous and in the boulder and pebble deposit on the top. Believe it or not... ask anyone driving a pickup with the Department of Agriculture emblem on the door and they will point out where to go for the Fairburns! Once you are there, deviate a bit so you are not rewalking where WE started, as no Fairburns were found on our last trip. If... you are planning to go to Nebraska, or live in Nebraska... this is an excellent issue for young, old and nearly fossilized grandparents who share an interest of what has been discovered within the State. It is written primarily by Michael R. Voorhies, Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology, University of Nebraska. It is a "treasure of information", well written by an authority and the other authors are no less remarkable in the color illustrations and information. It sold originally for $12.95 and is available on the internet, used, for less. It is 162 pages of Nebraska. Nebraskaland Magazine's The Cellars of Time- Paleontology and Archaeology in Nebraska, Volume 72, Number 1, January/February 1994. If you search www.abebooks.com just type in the title The Cellars of Time. If I did not have a copy already, I would have ordered it once reading this post. And... if this does not get you off of your sofa... on page 7 is a Miocene Saber Tooth cat with one of its canines stuck in the femur of another Sabertooth cat!
  14. After all of my Nebraska Badland posts, you would think I am a paid promoter for Sioux County and Dawes County, Nebraska. I am not. This area of the panhandle of Nebraska and Southwest South Dakota probably made the biggest impression on me as a teenager, Geology University Student and a parent of two daughters. THIS vacation will make a lasting impression on everyone who enjoys natural history and the Sioux Indian Wars of the 1870's. There is biking, horse back riding, camping, Fort Robinson Playhouse, a Rodeo in Crawford and Harrison, Nebraska, Scottsbluff and the Oregon Trail history, a restored/original Calvary Fort Robinson where you can rent rooms or a building for 12 or more visitors. An Olympic swimming pool. A golf course in Crawford. A huge swimming pool and slides at Hot Springs, South Dakota... The Black Hills... should I go on? Yes... do not forget Chadron, Nebraska to the East of Crawford. Again... do not forget Agate, Nebraska where Red Cloud use to visit, near the Agate Fossil Bed Monument. Also you can find the Buffalo Bill Ranch, North Platte, Nebraska to the South near the North Platte River! I have scanned some brochures I use to give out to friends thinking about a true adventure. This is an area that is wide open. Elevations run 3500 to 3900 feet elevations in the general area. It is DRY but not so high, like most of Colorado, where "flat landers" will need to catch their breath. I have always considered 3000 feet elevation and above the best dry air and cool evenings during the Summer months in the WEST. The air will "pop" with a window slightly open... do not believe me... listen if you live under 1000 feet elevation to the sound of the wind from your car window while traveling, then you will understand. The facilities at Fort Robinson will overwhelm you! The kids will love it. The RV Park is modern, showers at the Camp Ground, Art classes for the kids, Tennis court, Swimming, Biking, Horse back riding, a "kids" Rodeo... TWO museums at Fort Robinson! Crazy Horse was murdered at Fort Robinson. You can stand at the site of his murder... and the restored jail cell he had been held. This IS in the center of the Sioux Uprising, the Indian Wars and near Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota... and go to Wall, South Dakota to Wall Drugs. The BIG Badlands are not too far away in South Dakota. Crazy Horse's grave site has never been discovered... There IS one unusual grave site on a Ranch in the Panhandle that would have taken many people to stack the amount of stones required. It IS Indian... but who might be interred, no one knows as it has never been excavated. Maybe Crazy Horse? Maybe Yellow Hand? History lives in these enchanting Pine Ridges, Bluffs and Grass Lands! It is hot in July, but cool and dry in the evenings. High time for tourists would be the mid June to mid August. Check with Fort Robinson as to when they are open this year and close. Also, ask about the Playhouse that has excellent melodrama shows... great for the entire family to participate! If you have any questions... ask. I have been camping on the National Grasslands to the Northwest of Toadstool Park. You can easily take a car or pickup pulling a camping trailer. They are posted as "Pasture (number). You may be sharing the pasture with grazing cattle as the ranchers will lease these productive grasslands for long term grazing.

  16. Post Your Bunny Pics Here

    I’ve had more then a few fossil, rabbit (Palaeolagus) skulls from the American West over the years but this one is my favorite! The nodule this skull is in looks to me to be part of a burrow. Maybe that’s why the skull is in such good shape. I have had this specimen in my collection for many years but I really haven’t spent any time on photographing it until today. Please add your bunny skulls to this thread. Thanks Mikey
