tarinfeinstein posted a topic in Fossil IDHi! Back when I was 10-12 I was hiking in Iowa when I found this "dinosaur tooth rock", which I have carried around for almost 25 years. I have always wondered if it was part of a mammoth tusk, a tooth, or maybe even a Native American whetstone. Or possibly just a weird rock? Any ideas? Thanks so much for any input!! Specs: Weighs = 2 lbs Length = 7 inches Circumference = 8.75 inches Height = 2 inches

Al Tahan posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsHey everyone, Just an update on my recent adventures exploring the Whetstone gulf formation. My last post I went to 2 gorges in the Tug Hill Plateau area known to expose the formation. I didn’t find any significant fossils but it was a good learning experience. On one of my recent weekend adventures I spent all of a Saturday and Sunday hiking another gorge that exposes the Whetstone. I won’t always be posting exact locations in these posts. Sometimes discretion is needed so I’m not blasting localities on this particular one. It happened to be the cold and rainy weekend
