  1. I am thinking of buying a fish fossil for my collection. These two look similar to me and they are all 13 cm. Just want to get your opinion, which one do you think is better? Thanks!! First one: Second one:
  2. I am a complete novice to everything fossil-related. My family found an awesome fossilized asterotrygon on a huge beautiful slab with a couple of knightia. (That's my research talking.} I see that the overwhelming majority recommend butvar in a solvent, so that is my plan. It seems that all the posts refer to brushing it on. It seems, to me, like this would displace the tiny bones. ? I was assuming that spraying it on would be better. Could someone give me some advice on that? Also, I don't want the slab to split (it certainly has several splits on the edges.) Do I just apply the butvar

    Show Us Your Favorite Fishy!

    Well, we've had Brachiopods and Trilobites, so I figured let's give fish a try! I am going to start this off with my Enchodus marchesettii from the Hakel Quarry of Lebanon. Not only is this fossil 100% complete with the only restoration done was repairing the matrix itself, but I received this from one of my good friends on none other than my birthday! This is my favorite fossil in my ENTIRE collection! More will come from the Greenriver side of my collection, I just gotta get my camera fixed

    My 2nd Trip To American Fossil!

    Hello all! This summer I took my yearly trip to Wyoming, and with my luck I again came back with several extremely incredible fossils! I found many less fish this time around, but I did find several more rare ones! I probably only found around 50 fish in the 3 days I was there. I found 8 Phareodus, including 2 juveniles! I found only 1 Mioplosus this year, the fish seems to be avoiding me sadly... I found 3 Priscacara, including a very large Priscacara serrata! I found an interesting Hypsiprisca preserved beautifully on an algea layer, also found several more Amia scales, but one of my favor

    Fish Aspirations!

    One of the rarest and most unique fossils are aspiration pieces! I have been very lucky in acquiring 2 over the course of collecting, neither are incredibly good, but their rarity alone makes them that much more desirable! I would love to see anyone else's fish with eyes bigger than their stomachs!
  7. Fossils range from 1.5 to 7.5 inches. Found in the last three years at American Fossil and Warfield quarries.
  8. I scored some nice Eocene fish plates from the Green River formation in Lincoln County Wyoming. Can anyone help me ID these three fish? Any help is greatly appreciated.
  9. A few weeks ago, I posted asking for advice on splitting fish for Green River. Your advice helped me out A TON, so thank you for that . I ended up leaving with a shrimp, crawdad, 3 Pharo's, 8 Amphiplagas, both species of Hypsiprisca, and many more. But by sheer luck, we ended up finding a bird, which means, we're going back to Wyoming for a CT scan.(And for more splitting) According to Arvid, the bird appears to be a new species, slightly dis-articulated, but it still has it's skull. I'll post pictures of our finds when I get a chance, but I wanted to thank everyone that gave me advice.
  10. Hey, I am finally completing my dream-job at the American fish dig quarry!!! I am just looking for some advice from you Greenriver veterans! Any helpful tips, like what I should bring, what I should do, and where the best place too eat is when it is all over!
  11. I have a 1in long Notogoneus fry from the 18in layer of the Greenriver formation. For reference of the rarity of this specimen, https://www.nps.gov/fobu/learn/nature/fossil-fish.htm I am looking to trade this fish for more fish specifically Mioplosus but, I am open to all fish offers. I will also consider dinosaur material from Kem Kem or Hell Creek. Also sorry for the bluriness of the photos, I will get better pictures up ASAP.
  12. Apalone Heteroglypta was described by Edward Cope in 1873 but was originally called Trionyx Heteroglypta. It was later renamed when a more complete skeleton was discovered. It is very distinguishable from all other soft-shelled turtles from Fossil Lake because of its rounded shell, and the near full loss of the eighth costal bones. It is a very rare find and is one of the most beautiful turtles from the Fossil Butte Member of the Green River Formation.
  13. 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!

    Greenriver Fish Project

    I made this chart about the Greenriver formation, and I was making sure I had everything right. I know I am missing 3 fish, but I could find no evidence of predation or them preying on any other fish. My conclusion was that Amia was the super predator!
  15. I have been on the market for a large Mioplosus for about 3 years. The largest in my collection now is a humble 11". I was wondering if anybody knew someone that was selling or trading for a larger Mioplosus.(Preferably over 15")
  16. I collected some nice fossil fish from the green river formation of Wyoming today. Can any experienced green river hunters tell me the best way to prep these fossils? One of the miners at the quarry told me to do a 80% water 20% glue mix and dunk it in the water quickly to seal it or it will eventually fall apart. He said not to use elmers glue but didnt say what type of glue. Also I have other specimens that are partially covered. They were telling people to use an exacto knife. to prep them and uncover all the fossil. What is the best way to go about this?

    I rescued a fish I don’t know...

    I rescued this fossil in the most unlikely place. The trash. I was walking along in a rock shop a couple of days ago looking at some cool meteorites when I noticed a trash can with a rock sticking out of it. I got closer and took it out and saw it had a fossil fish in it! I was completely astounded that someone would throw something away in the garbage! I took it home and showed it to some friends of mine who specialize in fossils. They concluded that it’s real and genuine. The fossil depicts a fossil fish that is oddly twisted and bent for some reason. I think this fossil may be from th
  18. Just wanted to share the x-ray of a fossil we extracted this weekend at our Quarry. All we could see was the cross section and we were pretty sure it was an amia but this sealed the deal. Notice that it's jaws have floated back by the tail and will need to be removed and re-inserted back in the skull. These are very uncommon in our quarry so we were very excited. Enjoy.
  19. Last season was a great season at the quarry. For those who dont know, our quarry is in the Fossil Butte member of the Green River Formation in southern Wyoming. We ended up with three turtles coming out. Two of them were large turtles, 48" (Apalone heteroglypta) and 52" (Chisternon undatum), and they were found stacked above one another, separated by only 7 inches, and a tiny little guy that is a new species. I will post pictures of these amazing fossils as they are finished up. We have Brock @ebrocklds doing the preparation work for us on these three amazing fossils. Here ar

    Heliobatis radians

    This is a female Stingray specimen called Heliobatis radians and is one of only two species of ray from the Green River Formation. Like modern stingrays, this extinct genus had barbs on its tail. This one is known to be a female due to the absence of claspers used by the male in mating.
