    Lake Texoma Find!

    It’s been a while, but now I’ve got something worth posting about that I’d like identified. :) Took a trip to Lake Texoma yesterday and my husband found this. My guess is some kind of bivalve, but I’m hoping that someone here has a little more knowledge.
  2. It's been a couple of weeks but it's taken me this long to take all the photos of my fossil finds from my trip to Oklahoma with the Paleontological Society of Austin! Our yearly trek to find Silurian, Devonian and Ordovician finds (not much of that in Texas!) was a great success again, thanks to our OK friends! Since it's just over a 6 hour drive for me, I went up early on Friday to hit a couple of "non field trip" spots before our "real" field trip on Saturday and Sunday. I had heard about a Permian site that I was excited to check out. It's a weird barren moonscape in the middle of a fiel
  3. My latests hunts to my Permian sites have been slim. Still trying to narrow down the producing layer(s), but my test excavations have been dry so far. If you remember in my last thread, one of my spots was almost buried by overburden from a dozer work above. I had a strong hunch that there would be fossils in those debris pile and I just needed some rain to start washing it down. I was right! We have been getting quite a bit of rain lately and its helping uncover more. Last week I found a couple pieces of an Orthocanthus texensis (Permian age shark) head spine. I have found many pieces

    Adam's Early / Lower Devonian

    The Devonian period is known as "The Age of Fish", but could also be known as "The Age of Brachiopods." In the Early / Lower Devonian, brachiopods reached the height of their diversity towards its end in the Emsian. We see the ancestral groups occurring, lingulids, craniids, orthids, protorthids, pentamerids, rhynchonellids and strophomenids, as well as the later successful groups we have seen before such as atrypids, athyrids and orthotetids, plus the rise of spiriferids, spiriferinids and productids and the beginning of the terebratulids. By the end of the Devonian , several of these g
  5. I found this in Southeastern Oklahoma. I found it at a lake. It was showing due to the water levels being down. I've contacted someone down in Keene, TX about it and they said there is a possibility one or both are acrocanthosaurus tracks or trace tracks. They have found tracks up in Atoka County. Which is 45 minutes away. There are tracks, also,also, a museum in Idabel, OK. Then, if you head south, there's dinosaur valley state park. Where you can view tracks in the river. I explained, to the person who specializes in this stuff, I moved it, but took documentation of where I found it. So the
  6. Well, 2 days ago I was freezing my butt off in Chicago and today its almost 90 degrees here in Oklahoma! But warm dry weather is perfect hunting time, so I headed out to a ranch I started searching last year. After many hours of walking and eyeballing every bit of rock exposure, something finally caught my eye. I immediately recognized the bone structure, marked the spot and kept searching. More and more bits started to show up and I immediately recognized the "figure 8" shaped that is distinctive of the sail spines of Dimetrodon! This is the animal I have been hoping to find since I bega

    Too big for a conodont?

    This came from the Deese Group of central Oklahoma. It seems a little long for a conodont at 7 mm but it doesn't look familiar to me. Any ideas?
  8. I want your opinions on this piece. I picked this up today, after knocking it a few times to make sure that it wasn't "fresh". The surface texture it really rough and funky. Very much like sandstone and not what I'm used to with fossils here, but the shape... come on, how can this NOT be what it looks like? Found at my 280MY Permian site. Whats your thoughts? Is it coprolite, a very grossly shaped natural rock, or should I go wash my hands some more?
  9. Found in Southern Oklahoma among other Pennsylvanian fossils, crinoids, brachiopods, etc. Specimen is .5cm across. 6 sided. Looking for help with ID.

    Permian maxilla w/ teeth?

    Hello, Could I get an ID on this piece? Permian-aged from the Ryan Formation near Waruika, Oklahoma. It's labeled as a reptile jaw piece. Has three teeth that are laterally compressed and somewhat twisted with serrations (Apparently there are serrations only on one side of the teeth). I wonder if it's shark and not reptile at all. Pathological shark tooth perhaps? Size is a little over 1cm. @jdp

    Waurika Permian microfossils

    Hello! I've recently been sorting through some Waurika, Oklahoma Permian microfossil matrix, and I've been able to identify most of my finds (As a beginner in the Permian field, @ThePhysicist's Permian album really helped me) but some I haven't been able to pin down yet. I'd really appreciate some ID assistance! Let me know if you need better photos, my photo-taking ability is, alas, subpar. 1. Trimerorhachis jaw perhaps? Or fish? I've heard distinguishing between the two is quite difficult. ~2 mm. 2. A really strange texture, I was hoping
  12. These photos are of what appears to be a large fossil found in my hometown in Hughes County, Oklahoma. I have not seen them in person, but I trust the person who posted the photos. The rock is large and initially looks like a spine, but I know that concretions can be misleading, too. I am going to reach out to him and try to find out if it was found near a current water source or not, if that helps. Thanks!
  13. Sunday the 26th I took part in a DPS field trip to a plant site in Oklahoma. The locality is in the Savanna Shale which is Pennsylvanian Period, Desmonian (Desmoinesian) stage, 306-308 mya.

    Northeastern Oklahoma Fossils?

    Found these near Lake Tenkiller. I am very new to this and just curious if I have something worth keeping or if my imagination is getting the best of me. I have a lot more to post but these look like the most interesting. I'm mostly interested in seeing if this writing is from Native Americans near the area
  15. I know members can't mention specific businesses on the forum. So, what would be the best way for me to find quarries in OK that may sell unprepped trilobites. I've been tearing up the internet and am having a hard time finding contact info for places like this. Is there a, "directory" of sorts that would help me with my search? Thanks in advance!
  16. Hello! This is a long shot and will probably read more like a Craigslist "missed connections" ad, but I figured it was worth a shot! My husband and I were on a road cut looking for fossils today (Feb 27) between Randlett and Waurika, Oklahoma. A group stopped and asked if we were fossiling and we all ended up having a great chat. Y'all had come from the Whiteside Museum of Natural History Permian Fest and were headed further south into Texas. I believe y'all were associated with the American Museum of Natural History... we didn't exchange names (why?? haha) but y'all pointed us to a fossil hun

    Southeastern Oklahoma

    Found inside of another rock when smashed outside of the Kiamichi mountains. Done the lick fossil test and it sucked saliva from the spot. What could it be? Aprx 2 1/2” tall 1 3/4in wide and 3/4” thick. Softer than quartz.
  18. blubyrdstudios

    I think I found something

    I took my family on a cross country trip and to do some overlanding in the desert. We stopped in Oklahoma to look for rose rocks around a lake. While taking pictures, I noticed this unique formation and the more I looked at it, it just seemed to look like a fossil of some sort. It was massive. I'm posting here to hopefully get some input.

    NE Oklahoma Fossil Deposits

    Hey everyone, I've been trying to plan a little trip for me and my family to go on a little fossil hunt. I live in Bartlesville Oklahoma and I have several nice places I can go to find fossils all over. Mainly mississippian and Pennsylvanian. I'm looking for areas within an hour or so drive from where I live. I'm aware of the pliestocene finds in the arkansas river in tulsa area. I'd love for someone to send me maps or geologic surveys showing what areas in the topography, and other recomendations. Places I've been to worth noting: Kaw Lake spillway, Ponca City (good shells everyw
  20. I found this strange fossil near Sand Springs on the Arkansas River of Northeast Oklahoma back in 2013 or so. I was told by multiple sources that it appears to be a chunk of seabed. Is this from the Devonian/Mississippian period? Can anyone ID any of the fossils on this piece? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! I have a few other specimens I would love to identify as well! :)) ~Noah Benzing
  21. As y'all know, I love photographing my fossils almost as much as I love finding them. So of course, I have to do a Year in Review of my best fossil finds! I seem to be averaging about 150 best finds a year....not too shabby methinks! Hope y'all all had a great fossiliferous 2022 and that 2023 is EVEN BETTER

    Reptile Oklahoma?

    Hello everybody I am a bit worried about the fossil I show. We got it many years ago and do not know much about it. As I remember it should come from Oklahoma, Permian. Reptiles. That´s it , nothing more. In my brain are some reminds name could starts with "R" for the Animal, but... What do you think? thanks for support!
