  1. Hey guys, First, sorry I've been absent from the forums. After the death of @caldigger I just kinda fell off from the social aspect of it all. It's been a weird year and some change. Covid has effected us all in some form or other, the planet is basically on fire, and politics is eating us from the inside out. I've literally lost friend, figuratively and metaphorically from all of the above. In the time of my absence from the forums, I have been fossil hunting. I've only shared my experience with people that are personally close to me, mostly @Bone Daddy. But, I
  2. Hi folks- I have had a good time this past month after work, prepping some White River specimens. This first one is the smallest turtle I have ever found... it so cute! This one took me 8 hours to prep. This next one is now officialy one of the prides of my colletcion. Whe I collected it only the top of the skull and a few leg bones were visible. No field shot, but here it is before prep began. You can see the skull at the bottom of the block, and some leg bones just above my thumb and a few more to the left of the green and black marks. I took th
  3. I was recently out vacationing in Wyoming and spent Saturday morning (7/24/21) hunting in the badlands. As I sat down to rest for a moment, I looked down and saw what I thought were a radius/ulna pair from a small mammal. Upon closer inspection, it was a pair of lower jaws freshly exposed on the edge of a nodule and on the backside, a small skull. Needless to say, I was ecstatic. I spent a bit of time making sure the specimen was consolidated (Paleobond Penetrant, wish I had brought some 4417) and packed it up for the trip home. I was thinking it woul
  4. Now that hockey season has ended and the lab is warm again, and perhaps due to my new found extra time in isolation, I am embarking on documenting my prep projects. I thought I would start the prep season off with something easy that should turn out fairly nice. Please welcome my new little friendly Oreodont, Miniochoerus gracilis. It came into my collection in the summer of 2013 and has sat jacketed in a box until today. This evening I concentrated primarily on consolidation and bulk matrix removal with an ARO, and still have a ways to go. The plan is to prepare the "down" side in the ho

    Oreodont Prep Series

    Forum member Ray Eklund recently offered several pieces of White River mammal material at auction to benefit the Forum. I was pleased to win one of these and received it a little over two weeks ago. I now hope to post a series attempting to show the progress in preparation. This fossil is the skull and lower jaw of Merycoidodon gracilis. This is one of the smaller Oreodonts, about the size of a modern red fox. Ray provided the following collection information: Brule Member of the White River Formation, Sioux County, Nebraska. Here are photos provided by Ray, posted for the auction. The r

    White River Skull Prep

    I recently got this skull as a fun prep project. I bought it as a Hyaenodon skull from North Western Nebraska. But I quickly noticed that it was likely something else. I don't have a whole lot of experience with carnivorans but I think it might be a nimravid based on the number and placement of the teeth. Hoplophoneus or Dinictis maybe? It's missing its fangs and all the front teeth but otherwise it's in general good shape. I've already removed a whole lot of material. And it's starting to look like something. There is very little crushing and the bone is quite well preserved. But
  7. Need some help identifying a fossil. This was found in Pennington co. South Dakota near the Indian creek basin. It was found in an area with many titanotherium fossils. I believe it is embedded in bone as well. Not sure what other info would be helpful so please ask.
  8. I'll be honest, I've put off writing this trip report for far too long. Between work, school and general procrastination I have delayed this post for over 7 months. Perhaps there's a silver lining to me writing this in the middle of winter, it could act as a nice break from the grey & cold conditions many of us are facing this season. Hopefully you all enjoy a dose of warmth from a trip which I enjoyed greatly. Ok ready? Let's go. My morning started around 4:30, ungodly hours for me generally, but I woke up excited for what lay ahead. Less than a half hour later we were on our w

    Rhino tooth

    This tooth is from the White River formation. I am sorting my collection and want to confirm my best guess. If possible, I would like to know the species.

    White River Rhino Skull Prep

    Today I got this mostly complete Subhyracodon skull from the White River formation, South Dakota. Right now it still looks a bit rough since it's been crushed a bit and there's a bunch of sediment stuck all over the place. The specimen has been pretty well stabilised. So it's not very fragile thankfully enough. Almost all the teeth are present. Only one maxillary tooth is gone and the very tip of the premaxilla is gone. The 2 posterior premax teeth are still there, but the anterior ones are gone. Roughly half of the braincase is also missing on the back of the skull. Otherwise the skull is qui

    White River Teeth and Astragali

    All from Nebraska. I thought the last astragalus was Mesohippus at first, but it seems much flatter than the other Mesohippus ones I have. Any and all help is much appreciated.

    White river coprolite?!

    Well, went out hunting today in one of my white river spots. I picked up this bad boy, and I have to say, I’m fairly happy with this find. It’s quite obviously coprolite. So, what’s it from? Anyone familiar with white river coprolites? I was thinking oreodont, but it looks a little too big and I can’t find examples online. If this isn’t coprolite, please enlighten me.
  13. Good morning folks. I have a fossil Stylemys nebrascensis(?) turtle from the White River Badlands of South Dakota. I noticed what "appears" to be bite marks on both the top and bottom of the shell after I removed a layer of matrix. I carefully washed it with a medium bristle, plastic brush and Dawn Dishwashing liquid. What are your thoughts on the "marks"?
  14. I haven’t been getting out and about much now a days. The heat and Covid has been keeping me indoors for the most part. The weather is slowly changing to fall and I decided to hit up my white river spot. It’s been a couple months since I’ve been, but boy, the spot just keeps on giving. Right out the gate, I was harassed by a rattlesnake...apparently they do exist. After giving that little bugger plenty of breathing room, I began a several hour hike around my super secret, private property, land owner permission having spot! it wasn’t long before I found a large ancie

    Oreodont id

    I’m thinking about adding this little guy to the vert fossil of the month(even though it probably won’t win this month with the competition). I would like to get a positive id and as much info as possible. I’m still learning my way around the white river formation. So far I freakin love it! Anyway, here’s my little guy-I still have more to put together, but the pieces are a little small and complicated.

    White River Formation Small (toe?) Bones

    Hello, everyone, Lately this summer I’ve been doing a bit of casual fossil collecting (with explicit permission!) on some land that a very close family friend owns in Weld County, Colorado that has a lot of exposure of the White River Formation, and I’ve collected a sizable amount of material including some pretty awesome finds. Being an amateur, I need some help identifying some of the fossils I’ve collected. Since the forum has a photo upload limit per post, I’ll be making a few threads for different finds, I hope that is ok. These are two small bones that
  17. What are the characteristics of a White River turtle shell that can differentiate between Stylemys and Gopherus (Testudo)?
  18. Hello everyone! know I've been slacking on updates on my three week trip to Wyoming with PaleoProspectors, but I promise I will post some more of my finds and do a full recap of last week's adventure as soon as I can. As for tonight, I'll share my experience hunting in the white river formation today, A view of where I began my day hunting. My first find: A section of Paleolagus (rabbit) jaw. Next I found a native american artifact After entering a larger area of exposures I came across this Mesohippus (horse) jaw.

    White river teeth

    Today the wife and I hit my white river spot. It was a very successful hunt-my wife has a keen eye for fossils, much better than me! Anyway, this tooth was found. I immediately thought some kind of rhino or hippo. I’m thinking hyracodons? We also found this oval piece of enamel in the same area. I’m thinking mastodon for this one. These are total guesses on my part and I’m more familiar with the verts of Florida. Any thoughts are welcome and appreciated.

    Paleolagus

    Palaeolagus ('ancient hare') is an extinct genus of lagomorph. Palaeolagus lived in the Oligocene period which was about 33-23 million years ago. The earliest leporids described from the fossil record of North America and Asia date to the upper Eocene some 40 million years ago.

    Merycoidodon culbertsoni

    Merycoidodon ("ruminating teeth") is an extinct genus of herbivorous artiodactyl of the family Merycoidodontidae, more popularly known by the name Oreodon ("hillock teeth"). It was endemic to North America during the Late Eocene to Early Miocene (46—16 mya) existing for approximately 30 million years. Merycoidodon would have somewhat resembled a pig in appearance, but had a longer body, at about 1.4 metres (4.6 ft), and short limbs. The fore limbs had five toes (although the first one was vestigial), while the hind limbs had four. Given the shape of the limbs, it is unlikely that t
  22. Finally getting around to working on a jigsaw puzzle I found in the White River Fm of Nebraska a couple of years ago. Pretty sure it’s a soft shelled turtle, but I’m not having luck finding anything like it online. The shell is eggshell thin and seems like it was leathery in life. There are a few bones included. Suggestions?
  23. For those who know my love of the White River, there will be no surprise here. I was trying to reorganize my collection a bit and had a large portion laid out on the floor. In this photo, I counted roughly 37 Oreodont skulls, I'm wondering if I have a problem. Adding a few additional ones I know of on my prep bench and at other properties, I'm fairly sure I'm north of 50. What fossils do you all collect too many of? If there is such a thing.

    Another White River Skull For ID

    This is another skull in my collection that look very similar to the other that I posted. I believe this might be another Hyaenodon. Please have a look and let me know what you think.

    White River Bear Dog Skull?

    I have had this interesting skull for many years and was hoping someone might be able to narrow down what it is. I do not have any collection information as the person who found it is deceased. I know it is from the White River/ Brule formation. My best guess is some type of Beardog Daphoneus? Any help would be appreciated.
