    Very strange Permian tooth... synapsid?

    Hi y'all, I found this strange micro Permian tooth. I haven't seen anything like it. It's from Waurika, OK (Wellington Fm.?, Early Permian), has textured enamel, has a broad crown but is VERY thin/compressed, and shows slight crenelations/serrations? on the edges. It's about 2 mm in height. It's not a fish tooth or scale (otherwise there'd be enameloid on only one side were it a scale), not Orthacanthid "shark" (textured enamel, broad, compressed crown), not amphibian (not conical or labyrinthodont), which leaves reptile or synapsid. Any help to narrow it down further would be very

    Parareptile tooth (2)

    From the album: Permian

    Early reptile tooth. Prominent ridges on the distal face. Height: 3.5 mm
  3. I was wondering if anyone ever made the claim to have the smallest articulated fossil, because I think I've got a decent shot! These are the smallest fish I've found so far. There are two Mioplosus labracoides and one Priscacara sp.
  4. I recently got started sculpting digitally, and with this new hammer I am now excitedly looking for nails! My thoughts turned to some of my microfossils, specifically some of my really old shark teeth. Microfossils in general are difficult to appreciate without a microscope, so I figured it would be fun to sculpt a few. My first subject is a Devonian Phoebodont shark tooth that I thought looked neat enough. Besides being some of the oldest teeth I know of (380-390 Ma), they look very different from the teeth of modern sharks (except for those of the frilled shark).

    Carbonized plant

    From the album: Aguja Formation

    Carbonized plant material (charcoal) is common - evidence of Cretaceous forest fires.
  6. Made a trip to the upper Pennsylvanian Bond formation today. I hadn't been to this locality in probably three years or so. I don't recommend hunting in 90+ degrees Fahrenheit. Ameura I made some slices from the top of the cut which is filled with microfossils, foraminifera. These aren't the best pics ,however, just using my cellphone so clarity isn't that great; there are some interesting little organisms hiding in there.. 40x magnification 100x Thanks for reading.

    Shark? dermal denticle

    From the album: Post Oak Creek

    To find denticles, you need to go to the finest grain size. This beautiful one could be shark, but I'm not certain.
  8. ThePhysicist

    Rhinobatos tooth

    From the album: Post Oak Creek

    Rhinobatos teeth are probably the smallest teeth you can hope to find here - they are about as small as grains of sand.
  9. I grew up in Austin, going to Shoal Creek and Barton Creek and my local backyard creek, picking up the odd fossil or rock and stashing it away. It has only been recently (within the last 8 years) that I really got interested in Paleontology and finding out about the formations and proper fossil names etc....so it's been fun to revisit a lot of the places I went as a kid and see them in a whole new light. When the Paleontological Society of Austin used to hold meetings in person, I'd go up to Austin early and go fossil hunting in Shoal Creek - it has easy access and is a hop skip and a jump fr
  10. So how do you "capture the UM size fossils and place them on another slide"? I am thinking of micro fossils less than 1mm. I would like isolate and move to another slide specific specimens. Dental tools are way too big. Do you make your own out of extremly fine wire or what? Sources?
  11. Took a little trip to Lake Jacksboro spillway and concentrated on the microzone hoping to find some of the little goniatites and nautiloids. Only found a couple that were "big enough" to see , but once I went through my bag of matrix, I was happy to have found quite a few of the microfauna! A few I am not sure of the ID so any help is appreciated! All of these are 1/8 to 1/16 inch Goniatite Peritrochia sp. Nautiloid Gastrioceras listeri same as above, I think Goniatite Prouddenites bosei Goniatite Cardiella ganti

    Whale shark tooth (2)

    From the album: Lee Creek

    Rhincodon cf. typus Pungo River Fm., Aurora, NC, USA a minute tooth from the biggest fish in the sea - the whale shark. Being filter-feeders, their teeth serve no known function and are considered vestigial.
