  1. Creek - Don

    Fossil Xiphactinus?

    I know this isn't my find or my video, but I'm following this guy on the Youtube and he found Interesting fossil fish in North Texas Creek today. I'm thinking Xiphactinus or Enochodus? Video at 20:47 and 27:37
  2. Just recently added a really cool specimen to our Leeward Community College Natural History Exhibit. It is a Priscacarid from the GRF with 4 anal spines and 11 dorsal spines. The specimen is just shy of 8 inches and very well prepared. I have emailed Lance Grande, the author of "The Lost World of Fossil Lake" for his opinion on this specimen and is awaiting his reply. Has anyone seen or know of other specimens similar to this? Your feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

    Knightia eocaena - 18 inch layer.

    From the album: Fossildude's Purchased/Gift Fossils

    Another bargain from our favorite auction site. I didn't have any fish from the 18 inch layer, and the price was right. It is also exceptionally preserved, with all fins present. Knightia eocaena Green River Formation, Eocene. Wyoming. Fish is 4 inches (10 cm) in length.

    Who can help ?

    Dear all, Let me briefly introduce myself; My name is Marc, living in the south of the Netherlands, i'm 52 (not yet a fossil), I'm a chemical engineer working 5 days a week.... I'm new to fossil collecting; I'm a mineral collector but I recently purchased a collection of minerals among which some fossils. Most of them where labeled, except a few. I've attached a fossil fish and I hope anybody can help me with the determination. The label said "Fossil Fish, Brazil". That's all…... The size is approximately 15" (40 cm). Google search didn't h

    Santana formation fish

    Hello all Today this fish came in my mailbox together with a specimen of Rhacolepis buccalis. This fish does not seem to be of the same species, but the skull, fins and tail are in bad shape or even absent. Most of the 'skin' is gone, uncovering some of the bones beneath. I know this will make it hard to ID, but maybe one of the fish experts can help me out. It's from the Cretaceous Santana formation of Brazil and it's about 21 cm long. Thanks in advance.

    Fossil Fish ID Help

    The seller labels this as a diplomystus from green river but I don't think it is. The fins look wrong to me. What do you guys think?

    Fossil fish id

    I recently bought this fossil fish at a shop. I don't know where it comes from, how old it is, or what type of fish it is. The guy that worked at the shop told me it might have came from Brazil, but he wasn't sure. The fossil itself appears to be in a clay/sandstone-like concreation.
  10. Hello everyone, and happy holidays! I recieved this fossil fish (single fish split down the middle, so it's a mirror of itself). I'm looking to make a display case for it and I was looking for some help. I have a piece of plexiglass I want to use for the cover, and originally I was going to just build a wood case that holds the hinged box the fish is currently in, with a slot on top where the plexiglass could be slid in place. But now I'm not too sure, as I've seen some medal standoffs that can be used to hold up a piece of plexiglass over it, but then the sides would be open. I was hoping som
  11. Are there any papers/articles on Enchodus being in the Kem Kem formation? Also does anyone have any specimens they'd like to show off here because I read here that some people have specimens of it, and it just hasn't been described.

    Totoket Mountain

    Anyone ever been up to Totoket Mountain/ Bluff Head? I am considering going there sometime this summer. Any stories or advice would be greatly appreciated. Also what gear to bring would be helpful. If anyone plans on collecting soon then good luck and have a nice day.
  13. I just acquired a GRF fish plate with a Knightia, two Diplomystus, and an interesting ventrally compressed (?) fish. Any help with identifying this fish would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  14. I have recently bought a fossil fish prep kit,tried to do it and have done for 5 hours,however randomly a small piece falls off and Ive gone as slow as possible is there anything i could do to help?
  15. Hello I'm a newbie fossil collector (and newly active member) who happens to several interesting fossils for a decent price from our favorite auctions sites 1st is are Knightia. The seller claims that they are not restored or enhanced 2nd set are 4 Spinosaurus teeth. The seller claims that cracks have been repaired, but no restoration or composition has been made (Pictures 2-9 of teeth in pairs) 3rd is a Lycoptera which the seller claims is not restored or enhanced 4th are plates of Elrathia Trilobites from Wheeler Formation 5th are Fossil Ferns from Llewellyn Formation 6th is a
  16. Well,, it was just a couple of weeks ago when I was out on a fishing trip to the Green River Formation. We were invited back to the almost unknown 'Phareodus' layers!!! Very tuff layers for sure. We had to use special chisles for these layers along with the normal thin shims used for the 18 inch layers. We didnt end up with very many Phare's, only 2 but the boys did get some purty good B-Grade Phare's!!! What we did find was quite a few small diplo's and small Mio's in some very very nice high quality preservation. The one thing was,,, just how many small good preservation Mio's does
  17. Went to my property the other day to pick up our camping trailer and couldn't help but go through a couple more boxes in my fossil shed. Found these in a tote with a bunch of Scotia Bluff material. Not sure why they were in that box but made for a nice surprize. Here's the thing, I can not remember the name of these fish, the formation or the age. Nothin. All I know is that I got them from a chinese dealer long ago in Tucson. Any help is appreciated. thank you and I got more in the garage. RB
  18. I am wondering why Lake Gosiute has been closed off to the public. It is the only part of fossil lake that has catfish and I really want to try and find one, instead of paying thousands of dollars for one. I have heard it was bought by a company, but I was still wondering if they would let a small private team dig or if they would sell any of the fossils. Thanks for any help!

    Fossil Fish ID

    I recently bought this fossilized fish online. I was wondering if anyone could identify the species and perhaps pinpoint the locality/formation. Thanks, Seann

  21. I would appreciate some help/advice as I know very little about this stuff (although this forum is proving very interesting and informative). I’m looking at giving the fossil fish pictured below to a friend as a birthday present. It has been listed as “Knightia alta from the Eocene age, Green River Limestone deposits Wyoming” and is mounted on a presentation slab. The item is from an apparently well known UK supplier and comes with a ‘certificate of authenticity’. Does this appear to be genuine and is it a decent sample? There is what seems to be a squarish tool mark at t
  22. I was just going through a box of fossils that been sittin here in my office for awhile now. Besides lots of other cool stuff I ran into this little beauty. Diplomystus poweri from Hajoula lebanon and Cretaceous in age. I bought this about 20 years ago. I think its real? I only have my readers on at the moment and parts of the head look a bit fishy? No pun intended. RB
  23. Ive been wanting to get some fish done for a few years now. I have about 5 days of good weather left so since I got the abrasive unit up and running I started on this one. Its a Serrata from the Green River Formation and is in some real nasty rock. Its slow going and I figured I would use 50/50 bicarb/dolomite and cut back on the dolomite when I got to the 'thinner' things. Ha!!! I still had some of the 50/50 when I got to the gut and some of scale covered areas both above and below the spine and low and behold, it worked for those areas too!!! This really tuff hard rock makes for some
