    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

    Dinosaur Egg

    We found a few dinosaur eggs located in Utah. Not quite sure on exactly what they were laid by or even if they are fossilized eggs.
  6. Hi everyone! I'm gonna be spending a few days in Salt Lake City this August and am looking for advice. I'm debating between heading to the U-dig/New-dig sites in Delta UT for trilobites vs. heading to Kemmerer WY Green River for fish and other fossils. I wish I had time for both and to explore on my own, but time is limited. Any thoughts/suggestions? Also, any advice on finding petrified wood around the Salt Lake City area? Thanks so much!!
  7. I'm going to be taking a trip to the southwest (Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and possibly Texas) pretty soon, and I was wondering if anyone could give me some ideas as to where I could go fossil hunting. I'll provide the specific areas we'll be traveling to; I also previously lived in Colorado and have already found a few good sites, but would definitely be open to any other suggestions. Colorado seems pretty promising with some good fossil quarries (Florrisant Fossil Hunting and the Morrison Museum), and I grew up with the Denver Museum of Nature and Science as well as Dinosaur Ridge. I'll

    UT Spence Shale Fossil?

    Found in Blacksmith Canyon, UT area. Research indicates there are exposures of Cambrian in/near this formation. Burgess Shale type Cambrian fossils are found nearby in the Wellsville mountains. Wondering if could be Yuknessia or Sphenoecium.

  10. Reptile tracks dating from 251 MYA from the early Triassic were stolen around 2017/2018 from Capitol Reef National Park, but only recently noticed. Hopefully the perpetrators will be found and the fossils recovered. https://www.nps.gov/orgs/1563/care-rfi-05102022.htm

    Seed pod?

    Hello, I’m trying to identify this specimen. It was found in San Juan Cty UT in an area where petrified wood is common. The left end (large end) appears to be where a stem attached. There is a seam the full length. It looks like a large petrified seed pod. The specimen was broken. I attached pic of broken end.

  14. I found this rock near Green River Utah, east of the San Rafael Swell. Can anyone help me identify it?

    Hyoliths?

    Any guesses? I think these are hyoliths, from the cambrian ophir shale in Utah.
  16. Hi all, We were in the Yellow Cat/Poison Strip area this summer and came across what we think might be a dinosaur bone in the Poison Strip sandstone layer. We also found agate/jasper. Trouble is, the “bone” is an unusual shape and the petrified wood for the area supposedly has lost its grain structure, so I’m not sure what to say. Wondering if anyone else can chime in about these? thanks, Lloyd
  17. Hi All, This past summer, my daughter and I went to a couple of sites in the Green River Formation to look for leaf and insect fossils. Here's a video we made about our trip and findings. We also visited the Field House of Natural History in Vernal and the curator took us on a tour of the collection. cheers, Lloyd

    Dinosaur National Monument

    This past summer, we went to Dinosaur National Monument. I'd highly recommend it to anyone interested in dinosaur fossils and people with kids. It's a great opportunity to see fossil dinosaurs in their natural state and in a quarry, plus other fossils are around too (e.g. mini clams). I know you can't collect there, but it's good to see sites with an abundance of fossils the way they've been for ages. Lloyd
  19. On our trip out to some Rocky Mountain states this past summer, we found red agatized horn coral in the Uinta-Cache National Forest. Back home, we polished the agate, which is jewelry-grade material and transparent--so real agate, not jasper. Here's the video we created about our trip. Lloyd

    Mystery Huge Anomalocaris Appendange?

    Hi, I have this mystery piece of what appears to be anomalocarid appendage of sorts. The problem is I did not receive any information with it and it came out of an old collection from Maine, Usa. I'm not to sure what else it could be from the appearance but I am also very uncertain of the exact species. The piece of a very laminated sparkly shale If I had to guess it could've came from either Burgess Shale, Utah, or Nevada but I not sure what locality it could be from so if anyone if familiar with these shales and can tell from the preservation it would be a huge help, thank you and looking fo
  21. I was given the fossil fish below. It didn't come with any details, but this looks like a Green River Formation fish, which means it could be from Colorado, Wyoming, or Utah, right? Any thoughts on genus and possibly species? Thanks!
  22. Hi, I'm looking for help locating a plate that seems to be inexplicably missing from the online version of a classic trilobite paper. The plate I'm seeking is PLATE XXVI (26) from Lehi Hintze's 1952 paper Lower Ordovician trilobites from western Utah and eastern Nevada. Utah Geological and Mineralogical Survey Bulletin 48: 249 p. The only online version I've found, which seems to be missing plate XXVI, is here: https://ugspub.nr.utah.gov/publications/bulletins/b-48.pdf If anyone has access to a paper copy and can post a scan of PLATE XXVI (26) here

    Acrocanthosaurus Teeth

    A good number of Dinosaur collectors, on this Forum, have Acrocanthosaurus on their wish list and its one of the holy grail of teeth to acquire. I saw this post by Jim Kirkland and thought I would increase the drool factor. He does not state what formation it came from but have to believe its the Cedar Mountain Formation.. Enjoy His comment "Acrocanthosaurus serrations are so fine you can barely see them"
