    A Fossil A Day.....

    A Fossil A Day....keeps the blues away! Or something like that... I started an Instragram account (jamielynnfossilquest) and am posting a fossil a day, so I figured I should do that on here, to REAL fossil enthusiasts! I'm a few days behind, so I will start out with a few more than one a day but then it will settle down to One Fossil (but I will admit, I'll probably miss a few days, but I'll double up or whatever.) I'll start with Texas Pennsylvanian era, but will branch out to other locations and time periods, so expect a little of everything! So enjoy A Fossil A Day! Texas
  2. I recently attended the PermianFest event at the Whiteside museum in Seymour Texas. Along with several days of great speakers, they also offered dig workshops at one of their Permian redbed sites. I absolutely couldn't make the trip without getting in on a dig! I only went for a single day in the field, I wish it could have been for 5, it was so great. We were digging in the Craddock bonebed, a location where many museum specimens of Dimetrodon, and many other Permian fauna have been recovered. It was a special treat to be working a quarry site in the footsteps of Cope, Sternberg, Bakker
  3. There is a tiny town in Texas called Seymour. It has two stoplights. It's tiny. But there is a museum there - the Whiteside Museum of Natural History which is primarily dedicated to Permian Era fossils because there are the famous Red Beds very nearby, of which this museum has access to. So they put together the inaugural Permian Fest held last weekend. Not only did they have digs and auctions and fancy fund-raising dinner, but some of the best paleontologists from around the US gave presentations. I got to meet Carl Mehling, Jimmy Waldron and the infamous Dr Robert Bakker as well as some o

    Ahhhhh... TEXAS

    Wow... I had a SUPERB run around Texas for the last 2 weeks. The inaugural Permian Fest in Seymour, which was an absolute blast, started us off. Thanks Chris Flis @dinodigger and the other Whiteside folks for EVERYTHING! Then some more Permian in TX & OK. Then various archives and site pilgrimages relating to RT Bird, about whom I am writing a biography. And sprinkled in there, a bunch of wonderful Pennsylvanian and Cretaceous collecting. Thanks to Tully Hair @thair and admin John Jackson @JohnJ for their participation in these adventures. What an amazing trip! 3 xenacanth teet
  5. The Whiteside museum in Seymour Texas recently held their first ever "Permian Fest" event, part of which included 3 days of presentations by many guest lecturers. I was fortunate enough to have a seat literally, in front of Dr. Bakker. Since I was about 4 - 5 feet away from Dr. Bakker for the lecture, so I couldn't pass the opportunity to record it. I wish I could have recorded his presentation the day before, but the auditorium was packed with school kids and I didnt have a clear view of the presenters or the screen.
  6. 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

    Hi all, I'm fairly confident that this is what it was describes as, but I just wanted to make sure. It was found in a fossil site in Oklahoma that was formed during a large drought.

    Trip to Hermit Shales of Sedona AZ

    Age: Permian formation: hermit shale of the mogollon rim location: Sedona, AZ Hey all, Was bouncing back and forth from fossil hunting trips and fossil ID but since I’m quite inexperienced with this area and age group I decided to post here. Took a trip out to Phoenix with my family and drove to Sedona for the day. I did some reading on the geology of the mogollon rim and targeted the red shale beds of the hermit formation exposed all over Sedona and nearby Oak Creek (big thanks to @Arizona Chris for his wonderfully informative site on the geologic history of
  9. Hey again everyone! I have a LOT of overdue trip reports, experiences, and finds I’d love to share. Ive been busy traveling around Texas exploring and having the best outdoor fun before I buckle down and start my academic journey. I want to start off saying Happy Holidays and Happy New Years to everyone here! I will never forget anyone who has been kind to helped me, especially this year, and I wish everyone only the best. I literally mean it! Some of you remembered me from years ago and scrambled to help me like a guardian angel- I’ll make you guys proud someday. These ad

    Any Idea what this is?

    Howdy folks, I found this fossil in the West TX Permian Basin near the town on Mertzon in Irion County, USA. It looks to be in a limey fine sandstone (possibly a very poor quality chert) and I found it in a dry riverbed. The little spikes easily seen in the profile picture of it are also present in the larger more amorphous mass but are harder to see. It is definitely a Permian aged invertebrate marine fossil, but I don't know from there. Any help would be appreciated.

    Orthacanthus teeth

    From the album: Permian

    Some more complete Orthacanthus teeth, each maybe about 1/4" in size
  12. ThePhysicist

    Handful of broken Orthacanthus

    From the album: Permian

    One of the most common fossils from the Permian (this locality in particular). Unfortunately, they are almost always broken. Of the hundreds of teeth I have, perhaps only a few larger than a couple of mm are mostly complete.

    Texas Permian micros

    From the album: Permian

    A handful of the more interesting (of very few) fossils I found in unprocessed matrix from the Archer City fm. here in TX.
  14. ThePhysicist

    Eryops tooth

    From the album: Permian

    Eryops teeth are conical (this one bears no carinae, though don't know if that's true for the whole dentition), and often have basal creases.
  15. ThePhysicist

    Permian micro display

    From the album: Permian

    It's remarkable how much of an ecosystem's diversity can be captured in a space smaller than a matchbox. In this case are the likes of Dimetrodon, Eryops, Archeria, Seymouria et al.

    Permian Age Fossil?

    Hi there everyone! Ive got a tricky one today. I came across this listing for a “Trimerorhachis fossil” and I was wondering If y’all would be able to help me properly identify the specimen and possibly identify from what part of the body it comes from. The seller specifies that it was found in the Ryan Formation near Waurika, Oklahoma and claims that the bones belong to a member of the family Trimerorhachidae. Permian fossils are personally some of my favorites, but I’m not completely able to distinguish what this fossil could be. My only guess is that it coul

    Dimetrodon tooth?

    Hello! It is a dimetrodon tooth? From texas red beds. Size about 0.6 inch

    Secodontosaurus tooth?

    From the album: Permian

    Teeth from the Permian are often difficult, nigh impossible to identify with confidence. This tooth is strongly carinated, with the carinae proceeding to the base of the crown. It has no labio-lingual curvature and an irregular enamel texture. My best guess at the moment is a synapsid, something like Secodontosaurus.

    Actinopterygian fish teeth

    From the album: Permian

    Actinopterygian (ray-finned) fish teeth from the Early Permian of OK (Wellington Fm.).
  20. ThePhysicist

    Amphibian tooth

    From the album: Permian

    An amphibian tooth from the Early Permian of OK (Wellington Fm.). They can be differentiated from similar Actinopterygian teeth by the lack of a conical acrodin cap (translucent tip), no "S" curvature, and basal creases which terminate well before the apex. The exact ID is uncertain, but it could be something like Trimerorhachis.
  21. ThePhysicist

    Lungfish scales

    From the album: Permian

    Rhipidistian (lungfish) scales from the Early Permian (Wellington Fm., Waurika, OK). They can be identified by a "honey comb" structure on one side, the other is largely featureless.
  22. ThePhysicist

    Arroyo formation sandstone

    From the album: Permian

    These sand grains were deposited by a river in the Early Permian of what would be North Texas. Iron oxides (e.g. hematite) color these sediments red (they weren't originally).
  23. ThePhysicist

    Arroyo formation sedimentology

    From the album: Permian

    Sandstone collected from the Arroyo formation (Clear Form Group) of North Texas. The color transition represents a transition between a river deposit (red) and a floodplain deposit (white). See "Geologic Guide of Baylor County, Texas"
