  1. 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:

    Tiny jaw with teeth

    My best guess is rodent. Hoping one of the experts can narrow down a bit.North central Nebraska. Miocene Thanks

    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

    Midwest USA

    Thankyou ahead of time! This could be nothing as i am an amateur in most perspectives but on my normal dog walk/ rockhounding adventure i picked up something different, half buried, but uncovered in some new trails made by some heavy equipment here in south east nebraska. Will add several photos, im not sure of anything except i know its not a rock im familiar with! Thankyou again for any information!
  5. diginupbones

    Nice horse tooth

    This may be the best preserved Horse tooth I’ve ever found. It has very little wear and even still has the roots! I’ve looked through all the reference material that I have available and really haven’t found anything close. Even if I don’t get an ID I knew Jack would love to see this one! L=20.5mm W=13mm H=29mm. @Shellseeker
  6. Jimbone

    Postpygal Mosasaur vertebrae?

    Hi, Looking for some confirmation on these vertebrae. Found below a eroding layer of Pierre shale. Thinking Mosasaur but the two lower "wings" seem odd. Also in the last pictures you can see the thin layer of orange matrix, top of Pierre shale? K-PG Boundary perhaps? Thanks in advance for info and insight.
  7. diginupbones

    Jaw section from a very large mammal

    I thought this might have a good chance of getting identified because of the unusual shape of the tooth sockets. parts of the teeth still remain in the sockets. Found in north of Central Nebraska. Miocene. @Harry Pristis
  8. I had magnanimous offers to join 3 fabulous collecting trips this summer, those being Hell Creek for dinos, Morocco for trilobites, and Nebraska Oligocene badlands hunting. After careful consideration, I chose the latter, for a few reasons. First of all, I had been friends with the other 2 guys, Rob and Greg, since my first Oligocene vert hunt 10 years ago, where my wife and I met them. Our 2012 trip, however, wasn't very fruitful, so a rematch was in order. Greg had some good ranches leased and critical equipment in storage nearby, so a small group of 3 friends made good sense

    Three toed horse tooth ID help

    Could use a little help with this one. I think I have it narrowed down to Nannippus but haven’t found a close match with the info I have available. Thanks. APL=24mm. TRW=23mm. MSCH=37mm. Thanks @Shellseeker @Harry Pristis
  10. diginupbones

    Small foot/ankle bone

    I tried researching this but all I can come up with is that it’s a foot/ankle bone from some mammal. Size is roughly 32 mm x 22 mm x 43 mm. Found in North Central Nebraska most of what I find is mid Miocene. @Harry Pristis
  11. diginupbones

    Tiny fossil bone ID

    Hoping to get this narrowed down a little bit as to what critter this came from. Found in north of Central Nebraska. Miocene. @Harry Pristis @jpc
  12. diginupbones

    Need ID on odd shaped bone

    I can’t tell if this is just a very worn piece of vert or something completely different. Found in north central Nebraska. Miocene. Thanks.
  13. diginupbones

    Carnivore teeth and jaw

    Just by coincidence I found a piece yesterday similar to the one that @PaleoNoel posted. Pretty sure it’s dog, would appreciate some input. Sorry no scale, current out hunting. North central Nebraska. Miocene. Thanks @Nimravis @siteseer @fossillarry
  14. diginupbones

    Possible protoceratid tooth

    @Harry Pristis identified one of these for me not too long ago. Could I possibly be lucky enough to have found another one? This one is quite a bit smaller than the last one, but still a big tooth! L-32. W-23.
  15. Peat Burns

    Ischyromys? (rodentia)

    I am looking for confirmation of the identity of this rodent jaw from the White River Group of NW Nebraska. I am thinking Ischyromys. Thoughts? Scale is mm. Occlusal view enlarged and not to scale. @jpc, @Fruitbat, @Nimravis
  16. Hello All, I am hoping someone might be able to tell me what this is, or what it was a part of. A LONG time ago we were traveling the country, we stopped in Nebraska and Kansas and use to backpack everywhere. We found this in the sand one day after a hard rain the night before. We took it home, as we didn't really know what it was. We are thinking it is a fossil of some sort. So the item was found in the north west section of Nebraska. Was found in 1993 and sat in a safe since. I pray someone may be able to shed light on it.
  17. I collected thousands of micro Squamate (lizards, legless lizards and snakes) specimens from anthill matrix from my sons’ Eocene/Oligocene, White River Group, M&M Ranch in Nebraska in 2016 and 2017 that I donated to the Smithsonian Institution. I spent over 3,000 hours over a year and a half picking the specimens from the anthill matrix. All of the squamate specimens have been with a squamate researcher in Germany since late 2017/early 2018. Unfortunately Covid and two other major projects that the researcher was working on, a major Messel Pit publication and a climate paper, delayed th

    Mystery Bones

    By some vast, cosmic alignment of karma, snolly has become the possessor of a horde of material, deaccessioned from a museum's abundance. Information is scant, but "Oligocene" and "Nebraska" are offered as clues. The foil wrapped specimens had apparently lain in benign neglect for a a generous span, the bone rests in pieces with sheets of dried, peeling consolidant and crumbling matrix. The specimens appear to be limb bones and Oreodont is the donor that presents as likely. At present, snolly is leisurely joining the puzzle pieces and removing old consolidant (white glue?) and mat

    Interesting little tooth

    First one of these I have found. Need a little help with ID please. L-23 W-12 H-20.

    Bison Bovid Conundrum (Needs ID)

    Ok I thought I had started to be able to ID bovine teeth and jaws and then this threw my off. This is from a post on Facebook - found in a cave in Kansas. I have posed here with he user's permission. Why is there a three-lobed molar in the middle of this lower jaw? In the past I had though the m3 for cow/bison was the only three lobed molar. But some searching online is telling me otherwise. Also the m3 here looks two-lobed. Can someone clarify?

    Odd tiny vert need ID

    No idea what this is from but it is in really nice shape and completely fossilized. North central Nebraska. Miocene
  23. Hello!! Just wanted to share with the forum some of my fossils and bones that I do not need identified but would love thoughts on nonetheless. The elephant bone is of a four tusker- the upper part of the tibia, and completely mineralized, and very heavy. It is anywhere from 13-15 myo. The tortoise shell frags include the lip of the shell, as well as a nice slab of the plastron- found separately, but in the same creek. Tortoises were in Nebraska 8-15 mya. The horse tibia has been identified as either the tibia of the small three-toed horse Pseudhipparion, or t

    Calcaneus ID- Nebraska

    Hello all. First of many IDs I will be requesting of the fossils I have found in the Verdigris Creek of Northeastern Nebraska. This creek runs through the Valentine Formation which is roughly dated to 15 million years old, but is also known to cut through Pleistocene exposures. This bone I found has almost certainly been gnawed on- it matched up to the size of one of the larger stem hipparions found around here, but I am still unsure whether it could possibly be camelid or anything else. Let me know your thoughts!! Thank you.

    Rhino Frags- Teleoceras

    Just sharing some more fossils I had the pleasure of getting identified. Again, from Northeast Nebraska, found in a creek that runs through both the Valentine and Ash Hollow formations. While there, I had the privilege of working at a fossil site absolutely FULL of complete teleoceras skeletons, and was able to ID the femur cap with help from the paleontologist there- the little articulated lip was the perfect match. I attached a photo of the femur another species of teleoceras (the only photo I could find of one) so you can see the comparison. The rib matched the thickness and shape of the rh
