BudB posted a topic in Fossil IDI visited a new creek in Hill County Tuesday. This is an Eagle Ford area. As often happens with a new site, I didn't find any of the fossils I was hoping for, and won't likely go back to this creek. I did find this strange looking piece, though. I'm thinking it has to be a septarian nodule, though it looks completely unlike any septarian nodules I've found or seen online. Am I identifying this correctly? Here are three views of it. The morning shadows are a bit harsh, and I probably should have found a more contrasting background than my driveway in the last two photos, but here it is, in all
Dromaeosaurus albertensis Tooth
Kikokuryu posted a topic in Fossil IDThis is my first attempt at getting a Dromeosaurus albertensis tooth from Judith River fm. I've largely been avoiding buying dromeosaurids like the plague that aren't Acheroraptor or Saurornitholestes. Provenance: Hill County, Montana The tooth is repaired, and I had to realigned it while restabilizing it with butvar. The tooth doesn't seem to perfectly fit together, or too much butvar ended up in-between. There does not appear to be any serrations on the mesial edge, and it doesn't appear to have any trace of serrations, at least not that I can see with a macroscope.
Hill County creek, October 6th
BudB posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsI decided to take a break in picking through the matrix from my last trip and actually get out and hunt this morning. I drove over to Hill County, and tried out a new creek. I really didn't find anything worth mentioning there, left and stopped on the way home at the creek where I'd found so much mud three weeks ago. It was much drier this time, and I had a lot easier time navigating it. But I still didn't find many fossils. Just like last time though, it produced one that made the trip really worthwhile. Does anyone know what this fish tail belonged to? A Xiphactinus, maybe?
Hill County creek, September 18th
BudB posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsI made a drive to explore a new creek in Hill County Friday morning. It ended up being some of the toughest hiking in a creek bottom I've done. This is another Eagle Ford outcrop, and in satellite photos, the blue-gray shale went from the sides of the creek walls all the way to the bottom of the creek bed, just like the Ellis County creek I visited last week. In real life on Friday, the creek bed was full of mud, and it covered much of the lower walls of the creek too. I've never seen such a difference in a reasonably recent satellite photo and actual appearance. To make matters w
