    White River fm. Mini Claw

    Hi everyone! I found this claw while anthill hunting on the White River formation of northeastern Colorado. It's about 6 mm in length and 4 mm tall. Honestly I'm not certain that it's a fossil, but if it is I'm really excited to have found it. My first guess is that it's a small bird, but it could very well be mammalian or reptilian. Any input is appreciated.

    Got wood?

    Found in northeast Colorado next to WY border. This looks like petrified wood but I have been fooled before.

    What is this fossil?

    I found these two neat little fossils in La Junta, Colorado. I'm not sure what they are but I have two guesses what they might be: barnacles or fish scales. I think it's from the Morrison formation but I'm not 100% sure! Any help would be appreciated
  4. My family calls this a petrified egg, but a researcher called it fossilized (well, it is all speculative on what the heck it is). What would be the difference, or is that the same thing, fossilized and petrified? I googled it and it said there wasn't a distinction. Also looking for any info on what you think this egg might be, and wanted to share it with the community too. When I was growing up, once a year my mom would get out this petrified egg, and my brothers and I were allowed to hold it. It was always a very special treat! We would wrap a magazine around it, hold it

    New find today

    If this is stone, it's very strange. Found in NE colorado near the WY border.
  6. I should have done this earlier, but my trip plans only just jelled. I'm going to be in the Canon City area next week, with some side trips to South Park. Any tips anyone cares to share on fossil hunting sites? I've already been pointed at Baculite Mesa and I'll be camping practically on top of the Ordovician beds north of Canon City. Also thinking of Box Canyon further west. I've heard there are good sites near Trout Creek Pass but I don't have a precise location.
  7. I was given the fossil fish below. It didn't come with any details, but this looks like a Green River Formation fish, which means it could be from Colorado, Wyoming, or Utah, right? Any thoughts on genus and possibly species? Thanks!

    Seed, egg or nut

    I was guessing some sort of accreation but when a friend dropped it I became confused. Any help greatly appreciated. Found on friends property in the foothills of Denver, CO. USA near the Fossil Trace GG (yes they actually have fossils imbedded in cliffs and other features on the golf course.) P.S. I ordered a centimeter graph pad and hopefully this will be last "improper" post
  9. So I had a great week out there. Visited all the museums around as well as Dinosaur Ridge and Red Rocks. Also checked out Florissant fossil quarry and Pikes Peak. I have way too many photos to share all of them. I want to say for anyone out that way, go check out the museums. OMG they are amazing. It's hard to pick the best but one that stands out on top (because of more than just their fossil displays) is the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Their wildlife displays are better than any zoo I've been to. Hands down simply an amazing place. The others are fantastic too. The Morri

    What is this trace fossil?

    Hi everyone! I recently found a trace fossil near my house. I live in Southeast Colorado Springs and there's a lot of marine fossils near where I live. I found what I believe is an ammonite trace fossil. I'm having some trouble identifying it though. I'm not exactly sure what ammonite it's from as well as what formation it's from and what type of stone it's in. I brought it in to the museum I volunteer at and it was determined by the curator that it is not sandstone and it's most likely from the Late Cretaceous. I think it might be from a Hoploscaphites cheyennensis in silt-stone from maybe th

    What the heck is this

    I found this just N of Cass Colorado next to I-25 yesterday. I have checked online and can't find anything like it. Animal or vegetable. It is solid stone.
  12. Hi Everyone. I was fortunate to be able to take a weeklong vacation trip the week of Labor Day, my fourth since I began collecting fossils. I wanted to visit friends and family and do some collecting. I was able to do all of that. It was busy, but there was also some quality relaxation time. It proved to be a good break. I flew into the Denver airport, rented a car and drove to Colorado Springs where I was invited to stay with my second cousin and her family. Next morning I was on my way to Florissant Fossil Quarry. I've known about Florissant for over 50 years and over 40 years ag

    Fossilized Florissant Feathers?

    Just as it says in the title, are these feathers from the Eocene Florissant Formation of Colorado. Or are they plant parts. They both are about 9mm long, 1/3 of an inch. Thanks for your help.
  14. The holotype is a fantastic specimen, which is illustrated. Paleontologists Find Frog-Legged Beetle Fossil in Colorado Sci News, Aug 10, 2021 The paper is: Frank-Thorsten Krell & Francesco Vitali. Attenborough’s beauty: exceptional pattern preservation in a frog-legged leaf beetle from the Eocene Green River Formation, Colorado (Coleoptera, Chrysomelidae, Sagrinae). Papers in Palaeontology, published online August 5, 2021; doi: 10.1002/spp2.1398 Yours, Paul H.
  15. Hey guys, My family and I are staying in Rocky Mountain national park northwest of Denver. Anyone know where you can find fossils near there?

    Colorado Coral?

  17. I found this piece of late Cretaceous petrified wood in the Dawson formation of Colorado. Most of the piece however is this grey ash colored rock and I was just wondering, 1. What type of rock is it? I’m willing to do tests such as scratch and hardness if it will help. 2. How was it formed? 3. When was it formed? Did it form during fossilization or much more recently? Thanks for any and all help.
  18. So my wife has a business trip coming up in Sept. I'm going with her and want stuff to do on the few days she's at the office there. End of the week we are hitting up some museum places around Morrison. I'm also thinking of hitting up the Florissant Fossil Quarry, because that's at least one place I can go and find something myself. I mean I'm certainly going to buy a few fossils on the trip because well why not. So there are a few things I'll visit without her just because I don't mind the hikes. I'd kind of like to find a few things myself and I know absolutely nothi
  19. In Colorado there is a formation called the Dawson Formation also known as the Dawson Arkose Formation. The most common fossil by far is petrified wood and although I haven’t found any vertebrate fossils from dinosaurs and mammals have been found. It covers a relatively large time span from late Cretaceous to early Eocene, about 70-54 million years old. A member that has also found fossils in this formation, Blake @FossilDudeCO. Although it has been over three years since he was on his posts have still helped. He said that further south is Eocene but higher north in Parker and Aurora is Cretac
  20. I found this today on private land while hunting for calcite SE of Denver Colorado. It was in a gulch mostly buried by sand that is very quartz heavy. Please help with ID! It is very heavy!!!
  21. I just got back from an amazing and very fruitful week of fossil collecting on the White River Formation in northeastern Colorado. The White River Formation is a very easy and fun rock unit to collect vertebrate fossils on. The White River Formation was deposited during the very latest Eocene and the early Oligocene, though the faunal diversity in the areas I was collecting on suggest it was laid down during the Orellan North American Land Mammal Age, which centers on around 33 million years ago during the Rupelian age of the Oligocene Epoch. I am very lucky to have a grand uncle
  22. Well with the last year of moving and renting and moving again, I haven't had much time to do much of anything on the fossil front. The Pictured Cliff Sandstone formation, Late Cretaceous near Durango, Colorodo. Spotted these large rock faces with ripple marks and decided to be a geology nerd and scramble as far up the slope as possible to snap a few photos. These ripples were likely deposited at the edges of the Interior Seaway, Late Cretaceous. In 10m of water. At least, that's what the paper suggests. (Depositional Environments of The Pictured Clif
  23. I've always wanted to visit the Florissant Fossil Quarry due to my interest in paleoentomology but for one reason or other, I was never able to make it out there. I was finally able to make a detour out during a roadtrip returning from a funeral last week. There were beautiful calm skies, which was lucky too since heavy rains were forecasted for the next 2 days. After a good 5 hours, this is what I had to show for my efforts: Most pieces will have unidentifiable organic smudges. Aside from that, small leaves are the most common readily recognizable fossils. I am a terrible botanist
  24. I have a few really nice fossils from the White River Formation of northeastern Colorado that I need to prep, and given I am a beginner at fossil prep I would really like to gain some advice and guidance from people with experience do I don’t accidentally damage the fossils. The first fossil is an Oreodont skull. The skull is mostly intact, and I was able to extract it from the field without using any glue or stabilizer or consolidant or anything like that, so this fossil is in its “natural state.” The zygomatic arch and upper tooth row are crumbling, but

    Is this a fossil?

    Hello! I found this in Fruita, Colorado while doing some remote field work. I have no idea if it’s a rock, bone, or fossil. Was wondering if anyone could help! Thanks!
