  1. Here are two photos of a Phareodus that are roughly 14" in length. Both on sale at the same website. One is almost twice as much as the other. I am trying to learn what to look for when evaluating a fish fossil from photographs. Comparing these two photos, can you point out what the big difference is between them? Thanks.

    REMPC-AC0003 Phareodus testis

    From the album: Prae's Collection (REMPC)

    Phareodus testis Eocene Green River Formation Kemmerer, Wyoming, USA
  3. Wanted to show this phareodus encaustus prior to preparation that my daughter found during our Father's Day night dig in the 18" layer in the Green River Formation in Kemmerer, WY. The team with us, and some experts looking at it after, now suspect that it is aspirated, perhaps with a notogoneus. Having it examined by xray prior to preparation as we may end donating this one to Fossil Butte Monument if it is what it looks like. Phareodus is every bit of 24" in length or longer. The best Father's Day gift was the sheer joy of my 9 year-old daughter upon her discovery. We

    Show Us Your Favorite Fishy!

    Well, we've had Brachiopods and Trilobites, so I figured let's give fish a try! I am going to start this off with my Enchodus marchesettii from the Hakel Quarry of Lebanon. Not only is this fossil 100% complete with the only restoration done was repairing the matrix itself, but I received this from one of my good friends on none other than my birthday! This is my favorite fossil in my ENTIRE collection! More will come from the Greenriver side of my collection, I just gotta get my camera fixed

    My 2nd Trip To American Fossil!

    Hello all! This summer I took my yearly trip to Wyoming, and with my luck I again came back with several extremely incredible fossils! I found many less fish this time around, but I did find several more rare ones! I probably only found around 50 fish in the 3 days I was there. I found 8 Phareodus, including 2 juveniles! I found only 1 Mioplosus this year, the fish seems to be avoiding me sadly... I found 3 Priscacara, including a very large Priscacara serrata! I found an interesting Hypsiprisca preserved beautifully on an algea layer, also found several more Amia scales, but one of my favor

    Hell Creek to Green River trip

    My son and I just got home last night from a 2 week fossil hunting trip. We loaded up the trailer and made our way up north to the Hell Creek formation in South Dakota. This was the 11th year since we started digging with Walter Stein of PaleoAdventures. We spent 4 days in the field at his Tooth Draw quarry. This started out pretty slow for us, with an Edmontosaurus neural arch with processes but was missing the centrum. My son found an unknown plate. Highly fractured but it looks to have 3 original sides. The underside is s

    Fossil catastrophe

    I have posted many times pictures of my big Phareodus testis fossil. Well, it fell and broke today. Fortunately, I have all the pieces, and I am going to put it back together as soon as I get some of the right glue. This is a disaster. My best and biggest fossil broke. I am not too upset, because there is hope to fix it, by the way. As soon as it is fixed, I am going to put it in a sturdy frame so this does not happen again. Ill post pictures when it is fixed. Jared
  8. Basically, I put a bunch of fossil fish together in one piece . All fish that I have found at the Green River formation in Wyoming. There's a Phareodus, a bunch of Diplomystus, and Knightia. Jared

    Fossil Art. Need opinion

    so, for those of you who do not know, I am a sumi e artist. Sumi e Is a Japanese ink art. I basically Drew one of my fossils in this style, and I would like an opinion. Does it look like a Phareodus testis? It was actually quite fun making a fossil on paper.

    The Heck?

    So, was looking at my fossils, and I saw something that has me puzzled on one of them. Pictures are attached. Underneath the jaw of the fish there are what look like ribs to some other fish. I want a second opinion on this though. Thats not what has me puzzled, though. Whats puzzling me is next to the fossil, the x shaped thing in the picture. Any idea what these are in the pictures? I think the fish is a Phareodus, By the way. Jared

    2 IDs

    A little back story. I went to Kemmerer, WY for a fossil hunting trip on August 12, 2019. The attached photo is a Phareodus I found. Today, I noticed something that looks like petrified wood near the lower jaw and on the Phareodus near the bottom. I said to myself, "It retained its shape, so it may be petrified wood." After a little digging, I discovered something else that was segmented and flat. Did not look like a spinal chord to me. Here are the two IDs. What is the segmented thing? What is the part next to it, Petrified Wood? Any help will

    2 things

    First off, I suffered a leg injury while duck hunting and I almost died. No, I was not shot by another hunter, I slipped and fell in freezing cold water. I am just letting you all know I am okay. Second, I need an honest opinion on this fossil I decided to hang on the wall. Does it look good in the frame? Should I add anything else to the label? Any ideas will be appreciated.
  13. Hello, I have a Phareodus Fossil. Its one foot long. I found it on August 12th of this year in Kemmerer, Wyoming. Today, I noticed something I would like some input on. I took a look at it and I noticed what looks like a pile of scales in the belly of the Phareodus. I am attaching a picture of both the full fossil and the area I am referring to. (I just noticed a Knightia is in the fossil also) I know Phareodus were carnivorous, and have big teeth, but what do you guys think? Are these scales in the stomach? Its last meal? Jared
  14. I was fortunate enough to be able to visit the American Fossil quarry in Kemmerer Wyoming this past week and had an amazing time. @sseth and his business partners do an incredible job running the quarry and made my experience there a memorable one by giving me the opportunity to find some beautiful fossils over the two days I was there. These finds include a nice Mioplosus, a beautiful Phareodus and dozens of Knightia. I highly recommend the American Fossil Quarry and I am looking to make a second trip back this next summer. Below-Mioplosus Below-Phareodus
  15. Three summers ago myself and my two younger sons were digging in the bottom cap just below the 18 inch layer. We found dozens and dozens of fish! My middle son brought some pieces to camp for me too look at. We camp right there in the quarry. At first look I was not too impressed, but put all the pieces into a box to take home and look at later. I can now see that it may be a really good Phareodus? I cut off a couple of pieces to make it easier to glue onto a piece of cement board and then begin prep. there will be some areas of rock building and one area of rebuilding some actual fish

    Phareodus preps

    Im still working on getting an air dryer, but still working on fossil fishy's. Here are two Phareodus fishy's ive been working on and ive got another one but that one still has a long way to go. Ive really got too many fossil projects, but for me, thats a good thing. Keeps me busy and out of the bars. I also havent been to a bar for about 20 years. Oh, the fish in the background just needs a little bit of clean up around the jaws mostly but the bottom fish needs a lot of fin work still. Hoping the fins on that one are better than what it seems?

    Big Fish

    Here is a rather large fish ive been working on for the last 15 years!!! Bout time I finish it up so I can hang it onto the wall. Ive still got to sand some edges so it will fit into the frame Ive already built for it. Then put a 1/2 inch ply backing on it and then,,,,,,, by gooly,,,, it will be ready to hang. I found some old wood on a very delapitated building along side the road one day, so its like that barnwood that everyone likes. plus it looks old too. The fish it old, so why not the wood too. I should have this done in a few days. Woooooop,,,Wooooop!!! I actually prep
  18. Im sure Ive shown this one before, but it was a long time ago. The funny thing is, when I first brought this little slab of rock to my prep bench, I automatically figured it was a Knightia! ha!! I always start on the head when I start prepping a fish and it didnt take long to realize that this was a Phareodus. What a super nice surprize that was! Came out quite nice but it does have a fin problem on the top side. Still, quite a nice little fish of 6 and 1/2 inches! Its now in the display case. Woooooooop!!! Wooooop!! With enough time this little case will be full? RB

    Green River - June 3-4, 2017

    On June 3rd and 4th I ditched my regular hunting grounds for the opportunity to meet up with a forum member @Seve78 at one of the Pay to Dig quarries in Kemmerer, Wyoming. Tom chose to spend Saturday at Warfield Quarry and Sunday with me at American Fossil (AKA Fish Dig) which is run by our very own TFF member @sseth Tom was an absolute pleasure to dig with and he filled his suitcase with literally tons of treasures to take home, I would meet up again in a heartbeat! I arrived at 9:30am on Saturday and spent about 4 hours helping to prep the site for Tom on Sunday. I
  20. I also brought home a small box of prepped out fossil fish today. Ive got a bunch more in my fossil shed, but those will come home another day, including some nice big ones. Ive got to start displaying them. Oh, now I see that ive got the black myo upside down. Dang! RB
