  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. During the Summer, I had the fortune of driving near Seymour, TX and thus the opportunity to pay a visit to the WMNH. The WMNH is a small but unique museum in Northern Texas, specializing in the Early Permian fauna that lived nearby ~ 290 million years ago in the famous Texas "red beds." The land around Seymour was once an equatorial bayou, humid and inundated with rivers and lakes. In the rivers were lungfish like those that live today, various ray-finned fishes, and cartilaginous fish like the Xenacanth "sharks." Amphibians like Eryops, Seymouria, and Diplocaulus also spent much

    varanosaurus and friends

    how adorable are these femora?! The longer of the two is a varanosaur and the other is a bit of a mystery. I suspect its a baby Secodontosaurus with the short shaft and immature ossification. Age is lower Permian.
  6. We've got Bonnie, the Dimetrodon almost uncovered! Here is a recent TV news story about her! Channel 3 Wichita Falls News Story on Bonnie the Dimetrodon

    Amphibian humerus

    Hey guys here's a shot of an adorable amphibian humerus I found while working on a jacket with some ddon bones. Always nice to find a surprise hidden in the block.

    Hey gang here's an awesome secodontosaurus vertebra. These guys are awesome slender finbacks. Also known as the fox faced finback.

    Bonnie the Dimetrodon

    Hey gang here is a quick shot of a good day- finally getting Bonnie the Dimetrodon out of the quarry and into the museum. 8 months of digging and preparing for this big move. The weight is right at 6000 pounds. Next stage is getting her opened up and prepped. In the quarry we have 2 more skeletons to start on. Dang I love the Permian.

    Dimetrodon canine

    Hey gang just posting a quick shot of an absolute monster maxillary fang from a very big Dimetrodon. Quarry has been yielded some incredible material. Removing a 10k pound block this weekend with a very nice skeleton. Will have some photos soon.

    Dimetrodon and friends

    Hey gang, here's a quick shot from the site- one of my team mates found this monster Dimetrodon maxillary fang. Needless to say it's the largest she's found and ranks up there with largest in the research collection. Beaitiful serrations and complete resorption pit. Would have been from a pretty healthy size Dimetrodon of 12 to 15 feet.

    Dimetrodon skeleton

    Hey gang here is a glimpse of.one of the skeletons. Great articulation. back at it this morning.
  16. dinodigger


    Hey gang it's been so long since I've posted. I've been digging like crazy at my Permian sites all year. Have 4 very good articulated Dimetrodons as well as some other guys that are completely new. I added 2 pics- one of a great Ddon femur and the other an ulna. Enjoy! Back to digging in 7 hours or so...
  17. Ok, so I've been doing some thinking about the Eryops site I found on my dig this past week with The Whiteside Museum in Seymour, Texas... I know... I'm obsessed... but I just can't help it! I keep thinking, “What is going on here?!?!?!" We have a red sandstone layer on top of the hillsides. Above that we are finding our favorite plant-eating reptile of the Permian the Edaphosaurus, which makes perfect sense because they preferred the banks of stream channels. Below the sandstone we are finding our shark teeth and shark spines. Now below that, have we possibly found a whole layer of Eryops???
