    Mosasaur Tooth Or Plesiosaur Tooth? Or Other?

    Here is a very large tooth i found about 2-3 weeks back. It was found in this state of decay, and even though it looks bad, i'm actually impressed that i was able to save and preserve as much of this specimen as i did. The tooth was practically falling to pieces when found, just geting it back to the lab was almost impossible, then trying to extract it from the ferrocrete matrix was right at hopeless!....i layered it with hardner as i cleaned some matrix away...slowly, alittle at a time...still, some was lost and this was simply the best that could be done to save what bit of the tooth i could

    Tennessee Amber. State record #3

    From the album: Most of my collection

    On the afternoon of November 22nd 2013, in the middle of the pouring rain, i found this huge Amber specimen in a Late Cretaceous formation. Location unspecified. This is the current unofficial Tennessee state record. It broke the previous Amber state record which was also set by myself barely two months before finding this specimen. It's the size of a hamburger! The first state record was set by the late mr. Bruce Wade and stood for 99 years. I have been told this specimen is in the top 10 largest Amber specimens to ever be found in America.

    Tennessee Amber. State record #2

    From the album: Most of my collection

    On september 20th 2013 i found this huge Amber specimen at an unspecified location, it is also Late Cretaceous. There have been 3 state records for Amber, i hold 2 of them. The first was set by the late mr. Bruce Wade. That record was surpassed by this specimen 99 years later. This specimen almost doubled the previous record. I have been told it is in the top 10 largest Amber specimens that have ever been found in America.

    Tennessee Amber

    From the album: Most of my collection

    On September 16th 2013, i discovered this Late Cretaceous Amber in the Sardis formation in Henderson county Tennessee. It was the first of much Amber i have since recovered. The largest specimen pictured is about 11/2 inches in diameter.
  14. Last year i collected the following Late Cretaceous Campanian specimens from a lignite layer in Henderson co., TN that has proven itself to be special to me. This is my first and only whole cone....what a sweet lil'baby! Was thinkng A sequoia species, but lets see what the experts say, I treated it w/ a preservative because i had to, the lignite was partially replaced w/ marcasite which would have soon deteoriated if left untreated. The seed & seed pod i'm not sure go together, but the seed sure looks like it may fit in something like that....the seed also stunningly looks like a redwood
  15. On this day, a survey of the said formation was made by myself and the property owners. The potential of what is there is as vast as acreage. Many glorious and illustrious items are there waiting for the right time to be shown to the world! The property is so vast that no where near a 1/4 was inspected, and during which the actual outcrops were passed up for the most part,while trying to get an idea of "where to start." This truely is a geologist's paradise! briefly while @ one exposure, these specimens were recovered, i presume the small one to be a "baby" Baculites....sweet little dude. It'

    Latest Paleo-Botanical Addition

    This paleo-botanic was recovered on April 6th 2014, i've just now been able to get to it & unwrap it, give a small prep, and am now waiting on it to cure a bit, then it will all be preserved and ready. This specimen is rather large. I'm pretty sure this is listed in prof. Berry's books, but there seem to be several there that are similar to one another, so, thought i'd put it in the i.d. section and see what you all think it is. It's Late Cretaceous material
  17. Here's a portion of Baculites from a Coon Creek formation outcrop east of Selmer, Tn. Beside hwy. 64. Late Cretaceous. Maastrichian, around 72mya.
  18. On the evening of september 16th. 2013, right @ dark, Amber fossil resin was discovered for the first time ever in Henderson county,TN. This discovery was made by myself. On the afternoon of september 20th. 2013, i discovered a specimen of Amber that my wildest dreams had never imagined! Hahhaaa....yea!!! It snatched away the previous state record sized specimen from the late (& great!) Professor Bruce Wade, like it wasn't even there! His record specimen was about a inch and a half in diameter, and it stood for 99 years until i came along on that fateful day! It is an honor for my name and

    Fossil Palm Tree?

    Here is a interesting specimen of pet wood, found by myself in Dec of 2013. It's from the late Cretaceous, and i assume it is Palm wood. I've found other palm specimens, but not quite like this one. As,all other examples never had holes this large, about half the diameter of these holes or a fraction smaller than that. Is it Palm wood?

    Fossil Geoduck?

    I found this clam eroding from a concretion in the Carlile Shale (Turonian) outcrops which I hike regularly. After much debate (with myself ) about the i.d. of this clam, I want to label it as panopea sp. (the modern species is referred to as a geoduck) but wanted to post it here to get your thoughts as well. Is this a fossil geoduck? Thanks for pondering, -P.
  22. Another surprise dinosaur discovery in Utah: http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/chi-new-dinosaur-siats-meekerorum-discovered-20131121,0,6885690,full.story As it turns out, geography could not impede the neovenatorids from spreading to North America. Given that Chilantaisaurus is also a neovenatorid and from the same hemisphere as Siats, it's therefore possible that Siats may be descended from some neovenatorid that left Asia and made it to North America via the Bering Straits because dino trackways1 and a tyrannosaur tooth from the Gallic epoch in Wyoming2 provide evidence for the e

    Marine Fish Teeth

    These teeth are from an indeterminate sandstone layer within the Late Cretaceous Carlile (Turonian) Shale. Do you have any ideas on which fish they might belong to? ...
  24. I found these in the latest Maastrichtian, uppermost New Egypt fm. of NJ. Both pieces were basically found together which leads me to believe they are somehow related. I have never found anything else like it although I could have easily missed other similar objects since they are small and somewhat nondescript. The preservation reminds me of invert steinkerns found in the same layer. I thought these might possibly be pieces of some larger invert, but I have no idea what. And they really do look like 2 discrete structures instead of pieces of something larger. The local ammonite/invert

    Rio Puerco

    I'd better post this before a new weekend arrives . Last Saturday, I got out to a "new" outcrop of Juana Lopez and Carlile Shale (Turonian). The day started out with another pharyngeal fish tooth (I still don't know what species)... ...followed by some awesome Prionocyclus (sp.) ammonites still in nodules... ...I was able to carry the smaller back to the truck, but had to return with a dolly for the larger (100+ lbs.)... ...after getting this big rock home and giving it a scrub, I decided to leave as is... ...I don't find many large nodules with the ammonite intact (or even vis
