    M&M Ranch in Nebraska

    My younger son Mel just led his first fossil trip of the year on our Oligocene M&M Ranch in Nebraska last week. My sons, Mel and Marco Jr., are starting to get back from their prepper some of the fossils that they found on our ranch in 2018. Not all fossils go to the prepper. Mel preps some of the specimens himself. Below is a picture of the specimens Mel found in 2018 that he will prep. Here are a few pictures of 2018 specimens just back from the prepper.

    Coprolite lovers, Help!

    Serious, experienced replies, please! This 0.5 cm long object is attached to a broken coprolite from the Eocene/Oligocene of NW Nebraska. Trying hard to figure it out. Wrong twexture for a tooth and it doesn't look like a seed, either. I have a guess, but right now a guess is all I have. Any coprolite specialists out there? I know the pictures could be better, but I don't have a microscope out here in the field.

    Possible Fossil Ball Joint

    Can anyone ID this ball joint? It was found in SE Nebraska. It looks old to me, and it feels like heavy rock. The golf ball is for size comparison. Any help would be great!
  4. I donated thousands of specimens that I collected from anthills on my sons’ M&M Ranch (mostly Oligocene but there are a few Eocene small areas) in Nebraska to the Smithsonian and to the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology Museum of Geology. There are currently six researchers studying the specimens with multiple papers in progress. Covid-19 slowed the progress down significantly but it looks like a few of the papers are now starting to move forward. Below is a link to one of my TFF posts that shows a few of the micro specimens that I collected and donated:

    Our Great I-80 Road Trip

    Greetings, all! After exploring outcrops and spoils piles from Quebec down to Florida, we are heading west from Delaware to Crawford, Nebraska and back this fall. Planning to stop by Sylvania, OH and Clear Lake, IA. Probably Richmond, IN. Any other suggestions? Thoughts on these three?
  6. I was in the badlands of nebraska in May and found a half turtle, dug it out and brought it home. However I did not pack it well enough to survive Fed Ex it was bounced hard enough to crack the internal mud into multiple pieces. I am now trying my ability on a 3d turtle puzzle. I multiple pieces yet to place, but I have one piece that I have not idea where it belongs. It is a little different. After I removed the turtle from its resting place in nebraska, I looked around the extraction site and the immediate area for anything I missed. this piece is from that final harvest. IIs it a

    White River Skull Prep

    I recently got this skull as a fun prep project. I bought it as a Hyaenodon skull from North Western Nebraska. But I quickly noticed that it was likely something else. I don't have a whole lot of experience with carnivorans but I think it might be a nimravid based on the number and placement of the teeth. Hoplophoneus or Dinictis maybe? It's missing its fangs and all the front teeth but otherwise it's in general good shape. I've already removed a whole lot of material. And it's starting to look like something. There is very little crushing and the bone is quite well preserved. But

    Tiny fossilized tooth

    Any ideas on who this belong to? I’m pretty sure this is fossilized but not 100%. Area is almost entirely Miocene.
  9. OK gang, this one has me stumped. This is the last specimen from last year's final trip to the Kiewitz shale, Stoner Limestone, Stanton formation along the Platte River in Cass County Nebraska. I thought at the time, and until a few hours ago, that this was one of the disc shaped oncolites that have been found at that site and related sites in the area. I was playing with a recently LED upgraded microscope and found it had cellular structure barely visible. so I decided to do a laborious prep on it with a bicarb blast. It is in fact nothing I have ever seen be

    Miocene mammal bone help

    Found in north central Nebraska. Miocene. I’ve had this in my collection for a while, I don’t know why I overlooked getting it identified. Really a nice little specimen.

    Mastodon ivory?

    I was told by someone familiar with the location where this was found that this is mastodon ivory. They said that it turns this blue and cream color in this area. Just wondering what the experts think. Thanks
  12. Ok gang, been a while since I posted some fossils. I’ve been practicing my prep work and trying to get around 2500 specimens organized in my personal collection in addition to the Uni’s collection and a dozen other projects! Brachiopods are a weakness when it comes to ID. These are specimens from the last 17 years, some have my old labels and such. Unless Otherwise Noted all have the following location data: Sarpy and Cass County, Nebraska, USA Kiewitz Shale Stoner Limestone Stanton Formation #1 some sort of productid
  13. Finding a complete specimen is my white whale. Usually only find small fragments, these three are my most complete. Am able to use a few bits to get a “reconstruction” cannot figure out what these are. thanks in advance!
  14. Managed to get out of my cage for a bit today and went to the only publicly accessible site near me.

    Paleomycology Fossil ID (Fossil First)

    I need help identifying this fossil, or eliminating possibilities. I found this while searching for Native American artifacts and other fossils. It was in a stream. Found in North East Nebraska. Geologic research says the area it was found is within the Ogallala formation from the Tertiary Period. Several members of a FB group think I might have a fossil fungi and have asked for samples,, which I am reluctant to attempt to chip off myself. Several of the photos show signs of fungi. I know that fossilized mushrooms are extremely rare in the fossil record, usually only being found encased in amb

    White River Teeth and Astragali

    All from Nebraska. I thought the last astragalus was Mesohippus at first, but it seems much flatter than the other Mesohippus ones I have. Any and all help is much appreciated.

    Nebraska Platygonus Peccary

    One of my finds from the Nebraska badlands found circa 1960's.
  18. I find these all the time and write them off as just more crinoid parts. The locals bring me tooth-like crinoid parts all the time. This ain’ no Petalodus I’m familiar with... Stanton Formation However, a student brought me this one today... I have about a half dozen at home. Is this a “shark tooth” or crinoid parts?

    White River Formation Help

    These are from Nebraska. Since it’s not oreodont, I’m lost. Do people find coprolite in this formation?

    Academic casts-identification help!

    Not sure if this is the right thread, but, here is a bunch of specimens. All are resin or plaster casts of the real deal. some appear to have been painted (poorly) none have been stored correctly and any records of them are long gone. These are part of the collection at the University I work for. I'm not a mammal guy, but I suspect I had better become one quickly. Some have various collection codes on them, but I have been unable to figure out what they mean. These are some of the ones I am clueless on: Jokingly referred to as the "bonenana"...tusk? rib?

    Large mammal bone Miocene

    I haven’t had much luck getting these larger bones identified in the past but this one is a little more complete so I am hoping for at least an ID on what part of the body this came from. Found in North Central Nebraska@Harry Pristis

    Chunkosaurus challenge

    I wasn’t even going to post this one up but it does have some unique features so I thought I would give it a shot. Any guesses?

    Honeycomb bone structure?

    I thought this type of honeycomb structure was usually indicative of skull bone but this piece looks like it may be some sort of joint?
  25. diginupbones

    Strange little jaw bone ?

    I think this is a lower jaw bone but the more I look at it, I’m not sure. Have never found anything similar. It looks like it would’ve had 8 teeth. @Harry Pristis
