  1. Sphenodiscus 1

    From the album Sphenodiscus

  2. This is from Western South Dakota. It is definitely a bone. It is super heavy and it feels like weighs well over 20 lbs. The "tip" has a hole going into the rest cavity of the bone that is all agatized. My foot in the photos is a size 12 men's to give a perspective on the size of it. What kind bone is it? And also what might it be worth?
  3. Bone ID? Upper Cretaceous

    Hello again, I've posted this fossil before on here a couple weeks back, but I did some more uncovering of the fossil and made a few additions from rock fragments I found surrounding the fossil, so it is more complete now. It is from the fox hills formation in South Dakota, with the depositional environment being lagoonal. Professional papers collecting samples from this formation list shark teeth, mosasaur teeth, bivalves, as well as dinosaur bone fragments being found here. I think we can safely rule out bivalves though haha. The brown end of the fossil looks to be a jointed end of the bone. The black "fracture" above my thumb in the first pic looks like a bone suture, something that occurs only in skulls of vertebrates. I'm no expert on sutures but this "crack" looks like it didn't occur after death of the animal. I haven't had this theory confirmed though. Thanks again!
  4. Fox Hills Large Concretion

    Broke open a large concretion, here's what was inside. I really need to learn proper prepping technique, smash and look probably not the best way to reveal specimens. Any more experienced with suggestions for SD Fox Hills prepping?
  5. 2 Cretaceous Teeth For Id

    I have these two teeth from the SD matrix that need IDs please.
  6. Help With Oligocene Fossils

    Hi everyone. I am new to the forum and am hoping for some help identifying several oligocene/eocene vertebrate fossils. First is a small jaw section from the Brule or Chadron formation (from dry stream bed so not exactly sure) in northwest Nebraska. It looks like an oreodont to me but it seems too small. The second is a moderately large vertebra from the same location. Here I was thinking it looks like a titanothere vertebra but again it seems too small. Third is a scapula I think but from what I have not idea, also from the Nebraska location. Last is a tooth fragment from the Brule formation in South Dakota. I presume this is a partial canine of some sort but from what I'm not sure. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  7. My First Id Post, Ammonite Id Help Please

    From central South Dakota, near the Missouri River. I'll try to get better images if necessary. Thanks!
  8. Oreodont Bones

    From the album Jerry's Really Old Stuff

    Assortment of bones from the White River Formation, South Dakota. Includes, Oreodont femur, upper part of humerous, mandible, articulated foot bones carpals and metacarpals and articulated vertebrae in matrix. Also includes complete femur of paleolagus (rabbit), Oligocene era.
  9. Oreodont and hyracodon, 3

    From the album Jerry's Really Old Stuff

    Close up of oreodont humerous, oreodont and hyracodon jaw sections with teeth, White River Formation, South Dakota Oligocene
  10. Oreodont and hyracodon Bones, 1

    From the album Jerry's Really Old Stuff

    Assortment of oreodont and hyracodon bones, White River Formation, Badlands South Dakota, purchased from person at Buffalo Gap, SD. Includes humerous, tibia, two unprepared oreodont skulls and various upper and lower jaw sections of oreodont and hyracodon with teeth , oreodont sacrum,
  11. Cow Molar?

    This tooth was found by a culvert near (NE) Webster, SD. I think it is a cow molar, but would anyone have any idea of which one and it's age? Thanks!
  12. I received a box of unsifted matrix from a quarry in South Dakota (Carlisle Formation? Grant County? Late Cretaceous?) from tj102569 back in late January. Large chunks, smaller chunks, even dirt and fine grit. I picked out a few visible fossils by hand, then used the vinegar method to release the rest from their calcified tombs. Here are my best photos of the representative fossils of each species I think I've been able to identify. Please let me know if you think I've got something wrong. 1) 2) (1 & 2) Cretalamna appendiculata - mackerel shark 3) 4) (3 & 4) Cretoxyrhina mantelli - ginsu shark 5) 6) (5 & 6) Scapanorhynchus raphiodon - goblin shark 7) (7) Squalicorax curvatus - crow shark 8) (8) Squalicorax falcatus - crow shark 9) 10) (9 & 10) Ptychodus sp. - crusher shark 11) (11) Ptychotrygon triangularis - sawfish 12) (12) Enchodus ferox - saber-toothed herring 13) (13) Gastropod sp. 14) (14) Unknown vertebrae (shark or fish?) 15) (15) Unknown tooth. The serrations would make me think one of the crow shark varieties, but the shape is inconsistent with those, I think. Any ideas? I had a lot of fun with this box of matrix. I will definitely keep my eyes open for other member sales/trades of matrix in the future.
  13. Here are a representative summary of the fossils I found sifting through the bucket-worth of matrix I received from tj102569. Fossils were extracted from the matrix via a combination of 6% vinegar solution and hammer and chisel. Other posts on matrix from this location suggest that they may be from the Carlisle formation. Cretaceous. I've tried to sort the fossils into different shapes. My camera is really not that great, so I'll include a short description if the picture isn't great. Any help in identifying these would be greatly appreciated. 1. Pretty sure these are some sorts of ptychodus sp. Probably a variety of different species. Trying to match pictures with this website, http://www.oceansofkansas.com/ptychodus2.html I feel like I have at least Ptychodus whipplei and Ptychodus mammillaris? 2. Shark teeth with a angle to the left or right. Serrated edges. May be more than one species, based on this website: http://www.kgs.ku.edu/Publications/Bulletins/Vol6/03_lamn.html I'm not sure how applicable Kansas fossils publications will be in SD. 3. These shark teeth seemed much more triangular than the other teeth I found. Serrated edges. 4. These may all just be broken fragments of larger teeth. I thought they might be a different variety however, since they all have the same large "gum" and very tiny teeth feature. If they are just broken bits, then they would have been very large whole teeth! 5. Straight-ish thin shark teeth. 6. These teeth also have a angle to the left or right, however they also have a very concave reverse. The teeth are nearly curved. 7. Teeth with the 2 tiny bits on either side of the main tooth. 8. These pieces are not from the same specimen, probably, but appear to be some non-shark tooth or spike. Fish? Mosasaur? Other? 9. This looks like a tooth, very conical (like a modern sperm whale tooth). The bottom half has lines on it that meet at the tip. 10. Looks a bit like a shell fragment. 11. The photo does absolutely no justice to this one. It looks like it might be part of a crab claw? Up close it's got the right shape and you can see the knobs that would be on the inside of the claw. 12. Unknown gastropod. 13. A variety of vertebrae. Fish? Some are super small, only about 2 mm wide. 14. There were several fragments of this fiberous material in the matrix. Given that it is clearly crystalized in the matrix (looks a bit like quartz or calcite running through it) I think it is not a modern contaminant. Maybe lignite coal? 15. This bit has an imprint in the top left that looks like it might be a vertebrae impression. In the bottom left, is a flat patch which has lines radiating out from the center on the bottom half. Fish scale? Thanks in advance!
  14. What's up people, I am new to this so bear with me. I am venturing to Wyoming in the near future by truck and was wondering what type of potential collecting sites I could stop at along the way? South Dakota, Nebraska, Wyoming fossil collecting sites would be greatly appreciated. As I will be traveling by truck, I will make multiple stops along the way to break the monotony of driving. Fee or free, I just need places to collect along the way. I am open to just about any type of fossil collecting, hunting and exploring so feel free to suggest anything. I appreciate it, bones
  15. Hey all I found these items in the "dazzling white" member of the Chadron Formation in Northwestern South Dakota. I figure the wood cannot be identified although I can see some variance with the 40-50 or so specimens I collected. Was curious about the other object I have posted. The chadron formation was a series of floodplains that were blanketed with ash fall from various volcanos in the west which replaced the wood with silica. I mapped an area known as Slim Buttes as part of my geology field camp. Unfortunately we were not allowed to collect any vertebrate remains but I saw many! Item in Question full res - http://i.imgur.com/lDS7Nvq.jpg Some wood from the site. http://i.imgur.com/Q1mD1cq.jpg full res http://i.imgur.com/KBGpAs8.jpg Bonus Locality Shot
  16. Could Be An Egg.......

    Found this years ago while putting down sod in a yard in Eastern South Dakota. It didn't look like any of the other rocks in the area. I think it might be an egg. Any thoughts?
  17. Over the next few days I'll be moving from Tulsa, OK to Williston, ND for my job. My approximate route will be taking me through Oakley, KS; Rapid City, SD; and finally Williston, ND. On my way, I was hoping to make a stop in the Niobrara chalk near Oakley and then make a visit to Mount Rushmore in Rapid city, but other than that, I haven't thought of any other good stops. So, if anyone has any good suggestions for stops ( for fossiling or otherwise) or advice on hunting the chalk, your input is greatly appreciated. I'll be trying to post the pictures from my trip on here as I go, but they will get on here eventually. Thanks again everyone, -Peter
  18. Greetings all! Im a newish member to your site and am grateful to have such an amazing resource available for up and coming enthusiasts like myself. This summer,my family has planned a trip to yellowstone and the black hills. My kid sister is an avid fossil nut like myself and we are eager to get down in the dirt. Since we've never been out west before, i was hoping to get some pointers on destinations we should consider.... I'd like to keep as close to the interstate 90 and interstate 80 corridors as possible, so as not to further inconvenience the rest of my family. Cramming everyone into one car will provide enough frayed nerves as it is, and i'd like to keep the stress to a minimum - any suggestions on things near fossil sites that i could send my siblings to would be excellent, every diversion will help! Also, i've read a few pages that suggest acquiring a fossiling permit? Is this legit? Most pages have informed me that vertebrates are off limits but i can dig around on any roadside for invertebrates to my hearts content. Im from Pennsylvania and our state has spoiled us for fossiling, as far as not requiring permits... I've heard that fossil quarries are a great place to go, if pricey - and im considering going to one of those - any suggestions on which? My sister really wants a fish fossil and the results seem to be good at the pay quarries, i was just wondering what the likelihood of hitting pay dirt is... oh, and has anyone been to cycad national park/monument (not sure which one it is, a park or a monument) ? Is it worth the stop? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Cheers!

  20. Bad Lands Sd-Fossil Tours?

    Does anyone know where a good fossil hunt tour can be found in the bad lands (south dakota) in early September? I know if Paleoadventures but are there any others? Where are there public areas that one can look for fossils? Thanks
  21. Well, just finished up a whirlwind pair of digs in South Dakota and Montana. I went dinosaur fossil hunting in the Hell Creek Formation at two sites: the first just northeast of Newell, South Dakota, and the second northeast of Jordan, Montana, right below Fort Peck lake. I had great weather; mostly 90-110 degrees F, low humidity and windy. The digs were very productive at both sites with many dinosaur teeth, turtle/croc scutes, dinosaur ribs and vertebra uncovered. Below are some of the better finds from South Dakota: 4+ inch T rex tooth uncovered by the group (good serrations and an intact tip) One of my finds, a complete 9 inch Thescelosaur ulna From Montana, we re-opened an old site and after pushing back some hillside we found a large depost of dinosaur bone material: Starting to uncover a probable triceratops vertebra And my favorite find, a triceratops rib that took me 3 days to dig out (with interesting breaks in the head and towards the distal end...note other partial ribs around it...) All in all, it was a great trip this year. Lance
