    A Physicist's Collection

    While my prime focus is essentially learning how to accurately describe Nature in the precise language of mathematics, I've always been intrigued by natural history - it's actually what started me on the path to physics. The sort of interrogation that paleontology practices provoked me to think and question even further, down to the fundamental science which makes it all work. Collecting fossils has brought a large amount of enjoyment to my life, and is often a welcome distraction from what can sometimes be straining work. The knowledge that I accumulate along the way is also part
  2. This post series will attempt to illustrate a minor prep project of a Moroccan mosasaur fossil. It is hoped it will encourage others to attempt a similar project, using simple tools. Thanks to Forum members @DPS Ammonite and @LordTrilobite for their helpful pre-acquisition comments. Special thanks to @jnoun11 for his ID verification of the piece and clarification of the fossil's precise place of origin. The Moroccan seller listed the fossil simply as "Mosasaur, 9 cm X 6.5 cm, Cretaceous, Khouribga, Morocco" Here is a photo from the seller. Note the large cop

    Baby tylosaurine skull from Kansas

    Hey everyone I just got news of a recently described set of juvenile Tylosaurus cranial remains! This cranial material is from the Santonian Smoky Hill Chalk Member (part of the Niobrara Fm.) of western Kansas. What's really exciting is that this specimen (FHSM VP-14845) originated from a neonate (newborn) individual, which can reveal numerous details about mosasaur growth and ontogeny. I've attached the paper below: Konishi, T., P. Jimenez-Huidobro, and M. W. Caldwell. 2018. The smallest-known neonate individual of Tylosaurus (Mosasauridae, Tylosaurinae) sheds ne
  12. Hi everyone, With this thread I wanted to start a discussion about what the feeding habits would be for most mosasaur species, how you think they would have fed. I personally love mosasaurs, they are one of my favorite prehistoric animals for a number of reasons and I’ve recently even bought my first Prognathodon jaw and I also live in an area that is not only known for their fossils but also for the discovery of mosasaurs. I’ve been doing a bit of reading lately about mosasaurs but I can’t really find anything difinitive on their feeding habits. Their diet yes. B
  13. I saw the first opportunity to get back to the North Sulphur River yesterday when the temps were going to be below normal for a change. There was a really nice breeze blowing down the river. Went to a spot on the river that I have only been to once before and access is pretty poor. Thanks to whomever added the rope, it helped, especially getting out! Quantity of the finds were low but the quality of what I found was great. Found the largest Tylosaurus tooth I have ever found with a diameter just under an inch. Also a shark tooth and one nice mosasaur vertebrae. I always enjoy the chanc

    New Tylosaurus

    I thought the mosasaur fans here might enjoy a fairly recent bit of mosa-research… This paper describes the very well preserved skull and associated postcrania (a few vertebrae, some pectoral and pelvic girdle elements, a partial forelimb and a hindlimb) of a new tylosaurine mosasaur species, Tylosaurus saskatchewanensis. The holotype material of this tylosaur is from the Upper Campanian (Late Cretaceous) Bearpaw Formation of Saskatchewan, Canada. The paper: Jiménez-Huidobro et al. 2018 new Tylosaurus species.pdf A sneak peak at some of the material described (articula

    three vertebrae in question

    Good evening, I have acquired these three vertebrae from a creek in Travis county where I regularly find shark teeth and echinoids. I have my suspicions on what they might be but would like a definite ID, thanks. Disregard the background ha
  17. So I've gotten myself into an extremely rare deal- a mosasaur and pliosaur tooth both in the US for a great price. The goodies arrived today, and I might as well show em off. First off, we have a mosasaur tooth from the Ozan Formation of Fannin County. Knowing that the NSR flows inside Fannin County and is also part of the Ozan Formation, This tooth is probably also from the NSR itself. Although the seller didn't have time to do a full ID on the tooth and simply labeled it as unidentified, by extensive comparing with other mosasaur teeth from the area, I can promp

    Black Hills Institute Museum

    So I went to the Black Hills Insitute and I made a lot of photos, so I thought I'd share. The Black Hills Institute museum in Hill City is pretty small, it's just one hall. But this one hall is absolutely packed with stuff. This is also the home of the T. rex Stan. Many of the skeletons are casts, but there are plenty of real fossils here as well. The skeleton of Stan. This is the real skeleton and the real skull is placed beside it in the corner. But I didn't even notice that at the time. Skull of Torosaurus. Notice the holes in the frill. Trice

    Mosasaur Humerus?

    Hi everyone. I recently bought this Mosasaur fossil that was labeled as a Tylosaurus Humerus, and i just wanted to check if this is indeed a humerus or another part of a mosasaur because looking at some pictures on the internet of mosasaurs (and Tylosaurs) it could also be a radius. It is 5 and a half inches in length and was collected in the Niobrara Formation in the Smoky Hill Chalk (Kansas). Since i am not an expert on mosasaurs (i am still learning about them) and my knowledge is limited, i was hoping someone who knows about mosasaurs could help out in confirming if
  20. Hi all, I have a set of three lovely reptilian teeth from Barbour and Russell Counties of Alabama that I need help identifying. First up, the large mosasaur tooth. The size and general shape of this points to Tylosaurus, Second, the smaller mosasaur tooth. The size and shape points either to Platecarpus or Clidastes propython. I can't decide. Third, the croc. As far as I know, Deinosuchus and Bottosaurus are the only crocs from this area. The tooth looks like Bottosaurus to me. I'm unfamiliar with teeth from this locality, so I'd appreciate any help in getting them identified.
