    Missourri river bone fossil

    Found on Missourri river sandbar. Windy days have removed finer sand. Fossil was sitting on surface. Near Niobrara, Nebraska, USA
  6. Hi guys! I am looking for new areas to hunt for rocks and fossils around the KC area. I have been to the Blue river, Kansas river, Cedar creek, Tuttle creek, Perry Lake, Mill creek, and abandoned quarry areas. Anyone have any general locations of where I can find some stuff? I am an avid hunter for all sorts of fossils and rocks (rockhounding is my favorite past time)! I've had the most luck at the Kansas river and Perry lake. Some of my finds include cow skulls, cone coral, shells, agates, vertebrae, and a bunch of druzy quartz geodes and chalcedony. I ha
  7. I found this nice vertebra on a sand bar north of Jefferson City MO. The foramina and spinal canal are clearly visible but packed with debris. My ruler is in inches. Any idea what animal this one is from? Thanks!

    Tooth ID

    Hello, I am brand new at starting to look for artifacts and fossils and was hoping to get the opinions of some more experienced people. I just recently found this item,(which after some initial research, my best guess is a cow or bison tooth) and was looking to see what others thought it might be. I found it on a sandbar on the Missouri River near St. Louis, MO. I was curious if there were any features about it such as color or something else that also might indicate if it is relatively new or a pretty old tooth. Let me know if you need any more information. Thanks for your help! -B

    Black cobble found in river

    I've reached out to the state geological survey and a couple gem clubs without luck but need help in identifying this rock. Any help would be great. The rock is much lighter than it looks and seems to be fairly fragile.

    Bone, branch or other

    Supposedly these came from the Missouri River valley in central South Dakota. One old timer says he was told they are petrified bones. They are very solid and high strength. Somewhat symmetrical on the longitudinal axis. Sandstone appearance on surface. What are these, any ideas?

    Missouri elk?

    hello! I recently acquired this fossil jaw bone, it was stated that it was an elk fossil found in the Missouri River... I was wondering if anyone could give me an exact species? Also, the person unfortunately went sloppy wild with some 50/50 glue and it's smeared on the jaw bone and even covering some of the chewing surfaces of the teeth. Any hints on the best way to remove some of it?
  13. Found a shoreline on the Missouri River in southeastern South Dakota with some mollusc fossils. There were lots like the one on the left, but only one I could find like the one on the right. Can anyone identify these? They'd be from the Cretaceous period, right? The fossil on the right is the size of a quarter. The ones on the left range from softball to golf ball.

    Is This a Shark Tooth?

    Found this a number of years ago on some private property along the Missouri River in southeastern South Dakota. The area has a lot of buffalo remains, and some bivalves and shark fossils. This looks like nothing else I've seen before, and I believe it's a shark tooth. Is this a shark tooth? If so, do you know what kind? It's about the exact size of a camera SD card, or slightly bigger than a quarter. The image shows it from three different angles. Thanks for your help!

    Question on Missouri River

    Does anyone know if the Missouri River and the bluffs along it are good for fossils and if so where would be a good place to start? It seems like a lot of good exposures are along the banks.
  16. Hello folks I am new to the forum. I mostly hunt for arrow points but recently found this fossil tooth on a hunt and was looking for ID help. I found it on a sand island in the Missouri River in Missouri. It seems to be a molar of probably a herbivore, not sure what time period. About 1.25" long. Very cool deep blue color, the river has polished it like glass but all the fine details of the tooth are preserved. I would say it was a older animal judging by how worn the chewing side of the tooth is. Any help would be appreciated. Happy hunting!
