  1. Goal: collect all Pierre Shale formation main fossil specimens. During my fossil hunting trips I collect a lot of different fossils but never take the time to figure out what it is exactly. Here I will record my trips and finds but more importantly try to identify what it is. This list will encourage me to not just look for the big marine reptiles but also smaller things I normally ignore. I understand how unrealistic this goal is but it's fun. Any feedback or suggestions are welcomed! Specimens shown on wiki for Pierre shale. Marine vertebrates

    Common Misidentifications

    Howdy all. I'm one of those that value correct id's when it comes to fossils, so I thought that I'd post some common misidentifications often seen in anything from gift shops to proffessional collections. If you know any other misidentifications you are welcome to post them here First up are the "Orthoceras" slabs coming out of Morocco (all these misidentifications are of moroccan fossils). Orthoceras currently only contains 1 species, which is only known from my general area (Northern Europe), based on my research, the species originally called "Orthoceras fluminese"
  3. Hi everyone! I just got a 20" mosasaur (Prognathodon?) jaw piece in the mail, and unfortunately it was split into 3 pieces. Fortunately, the breaks are fairly clean, with a few small fragments broken off, and the pieces fit right back together. If anyone has experience with this sort of thing, what kind of glue do you think will work the best, and what application method would you use?
  4. The unnamed giant Tylosaur of the Moroccan Phosphates is revealed at last. The great and mighty Hainosaurus is a previously unrecognized macropredator present in the latest Cretaceous (Maastrichtian) of Morocco. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/365437927_First_Record_of_a_Tylosaurine_Mosasaur_from_the_Latest_Cretaceous_Phosphates_of_Morocco Authors: @Praefectus @BrennanThePaleoDude @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon Abstract: The latest Cretaceous Phosphates of Morocco preserve the highest biodiversity of mosasaurid squamates anywhere in the world. Intensive sampling over

    Texas vertebrae

    From what two of my friend have said, this is most likely a mosasaur vertebrae. To get specific maybe a mosasaur terminal vertebrae. I’m still not totally sure though so if I could get some help on the ID I would appreciate it!

    Mosasaur Rib or Wood?

    From the Pierre Shale of Fort Collins. Found next to a lot of Inoceramus bivalves not too often you see something like this. I initially believed it was a branch of wood that was buried but I'm thinking it could be a rib bone most likely from a mosasaurus. Any feedback is appreciated just thought someone should look at it.
  7. Species level identification obtained from facet count (3-5 prisms labially; ~5 or indistinguishable lingually). See more information in Rempert et al. 2022 - Occurrence of Mosasaurus hoffmannii Mantell, 1829 (Squamata, Mosasauridae) in the Maastrichtian Phosphates of Morocco.
  8. Found possible skull but still unearthed. This point fell off which had others in a row, like a jaw. I took a pic before gluing it and plastering it up. Sorry for poor pic. Wondering if anyone can tell if it's tooth. And if so from what. Thanks
  9. I went to the North Sulphur River twice in October with little luck. The first time was after a rain that I thought would get a big rise but only got about a 1 foot rise. The second time saw about a 5 foot rise but each time the rain did nothing to wash away all the mud. It was easy walking because the river was so low and dry but no gravel bars as they are all covered in mud. I went to two different parts of the river as well as the feeder creeks and it was the same. Here are a few pictures of the little I was able to find: Some worn chunckasaur, petrified wood, pyrite sun (cool b

    Texas Mosasaur Tooth

  11. After no rain for many months we got a big 13 foot rise last weekend. I was hoping that would wash away all the mud and uncover many great fossils. Unfortunately it was still few and far between. The mud has been halfway washed away, which is halfway to where we want it, but the fossils are still not uncovered. Here are a few of the things i found: A couple decent but small mosasaur verts. Also the in situ shots. Decent fish jaw. Not sure which species though. A cool shell from the grey shale zone. All I eve
  12. Happy almost Halloween! Show us the scariest thing that has ever happened to one of your fossils or something about fossils that is related to halloween. Mine is this. I'd bought a fake mosasaur jaw but I didn't know it was fake. I'd put it in the sink to clean it off and then the whole thing crumbled. I did get some mosasaur teeth out of it though.
  13. Apologies for the dramatic title. I thought it sounded cool and stuck with it even though 90 + 80 + 80 is only 250 . Anyways... This past 30 days, I decided to make it a point to check out some new spots. I won't be living in Austin soon, so I thought it would be good to branch out and scout some new locations with potential. I've found lots of creek-worn mosasaur bits and pieces over the past year. I'm ready to find things in situ, and, one day, something articulated. It's a tall order, I know, but I feel like it's the next step and really the ultimate goal I've always had. So, th
  14. Hello everyone, I recently acquired a monstrously huge Mosasaurus beaugei skull which I would like to display in my house The skull measures 170 cm / 67" and weights 85 kg /187 lbs Does anyone have similar fossils which they mounted on their walls, or displayed in their cabinets? Thank you.
  15. Mosasaur flipper digit? and additional fossil found in close proximity. These were found in the Republican river valley of south central Nebraska. Found below an eroding layer of Pierre shale after a heavy rain. The same location as these Mosasaur verts. The triangle one seems to be part of hind flipper digit. The other has a interesting profile on one edge with a series of small holes in the valley. Any ideas would be welcome Thanks, Jim
  16. It's been over a month now since @Jared C and I found the Eagle Ford Xiphactinus. In the weeks that followed our discovery I was able to get in touch with the right people at Baylor University where I go to school and start to organize a retrieval project. Unfortunately I haven't been able to make it back to the site since then as all involved will have to wait for the wheels of bureaucracy to turn enough for us to have the proper permission necessary to return. So I was left with a problem: my first visit to the Eagle Ford turned out so well that I wanted nothing more than to go back, but I c
  17. I took off this morning and made a drive to central Texas to explore a new creek. This part of the creek is Wolfe City formation. I had hunted another Wolfe City spot not too many miles from this one, but wasn't sure what to expect. I had found mostly teeth at the other spot, so after making a pretty long hike to get to the best looking outcrop in this creek, I searched the outcrop itself, without finding anything other than shell fragments. So I put on my knee pads, and started searching the gravel bar (more of a mud bar, really; this creek is pretty muddy) nearby. The only things I spotted o
