  1. I recently attended the PermianFest event at the Whiteside museum in Seymour Texas. Along with several days of great speakers, they also offered dig workshops at one of their Permian redbed sites. I absolutely couldn't make the trip without getting in on a dig! I only went for a single day in the field, I wish it could have been for 5, it was so great. We were digging in the Craddock bonebed, a location where many museum specimens of Dimetrodon, and many other Permian fauna have been recovered. It was a special treat to be working a quarry site in the footsteps of Cope, Sternberg, Bakker
  2. The Whiteside museum in Seymour Texas recently held their first ever "Permian Fest" event, part of which included 3 days of presentations by many guest lecturers. I was fortunate enough to have a seat literally, in front of Dr. Bakker. Since I was about 4 - 5 feet away from Dr. Bakker for the lecture, so I couldn't pass the opportunity to record it. I wish I could have recorded his presentation the day before, but the auditorium was packed with school kids and I didnt have a clear view of the presenters or the screen.
  3. Hello! This is a long shot and will probably read more like a Craigslist "missed connections" ad, but I figured it was worth a shot! My husband and I were on a road cut looking for fossils today (Feb 27) between Randlett and Waurika, Oklahoma. A group stopped and asked if we were fossiling and we all ended up having a great chat. Y'all had come from the Whiteside Museum of Natural History Permian Fest and were headed further south into Texas. I believe y'all were associated with the American Museum of Natural History... we didn't exchange names (why?? haha) but y'all pointed us to a fossil hun
  4. During the Summer, I had the fortune of driving near Seymour, TX and thus the opportunity to pay a visit to the WMNH. The WMNH is a small but unique museum in Northern Texas, specializing in the Early Permian fauna that lived nearby ~ 290 million years ago in the famous Texas "red beds." The land around Seymour was once an equatorial bayou, humid and inundated with rivers and lakes. In the rivers were lungfish like those that live today, various ray-finned fishes, and cartilaginous fish like the Xenacanth "sharks." Amphibians like Eryops, Seymouria, and Diplocaulus also spent much

    Dimetrodon vertebra

    It's been a long time since I shared some finds- this is a really nice Dimetrodon caudal (tail) vertebra from a medium size ddon. The short, blade-like neural spine is the tell for position. Newest project for us is prepping a 12 foot by 6 foot block containing remains of at least 6 Dimetrodons. Hoping to get it into the lab by April... will start posting photos soon. Best, Chris

    Dimetrodon's yay!!!

    Dimetrodon teeth have come up lately and I havent posted in a long time. This specimen is grandis species from the Arroyo formation. Older species are smaller and have interesting fluting, something we don't typically see in the later, more advanced guys who also have larger, more robust teeth with coarser serrations.

    Pleistocene jaws

    Seymour formation lower pleistocene near Seymour, texas. Bovine on right, who is on left?

    Pleistocene vertebra

    Hi everyone, here's another one from the lower pleistocene deposit near Seymour, Tx. I saw some similarities in the camelops here as well. Does that seem right?
  9. dinodigger


    Hey gang, went to prospect some new Permian beds which are capped by lower pleistocene material. Nice surprise to see a mastodon jaw peeking out. Pretty worn but possible the other side of the jaw is underneath. Femur and vertebrae nearby. Keeping my fingers crossed. Will head back out in a few weeks.
  10. dinodigger


    Hey gang, here is a sneak peak at part of a new exhibit im installing at the museum. These are all Diadectes vertebrae that I finally have prepped. The width rib to rib of the largest caudal vertebrae at top left is about 7 inches. Lower Permian dectids had an absolutely massive tail with incredible muscle mass. Such a cool guy. Its amazing how much difference there is in his vertebrae from cervical to thoracic to lumbar etc...
  11. dinodigger


    Since Plantguy asked for more, heres the other cool find from today. Mammoth cervical. pretty nifty.
  12. dinodigger


    Hey gang, took a step away from the periman for a day to explore some Seymour formation ice age. Fun Stuff. Love glyptodons.

    Mammoth part 2

    permian pooooooooooo

    Hey gang, here is a handful of permian amphibian and shark turds from a nifty swamp deposit.

    Dimetrodon maxilla

    Heres a really wonderfully scary maxilla from a Dimetrodon grandis from a few days ago. Maxillary fang is killer... This one is nicknamed Annie. She's an isolated specimen. This is one maxillae of 6 were working on, the rest in the field currently.

    Dimetrodon fang

    Hi everyone- quick post of a massive Dimetrodon post canine. The root is attached which is really nice. Have a large ddon skull nearby with an empty socket that this may go to. size is 3 inches. Still have a little bit of matrix to remove.

    Dimetrodon axis vertebra

    Hey everyone, here is a really gorgeous axis vertebra from a Dimetrodon. The ultra wide neural spine holds incredible neck muscles.

    Dimetrodon skull bones

    hi everyone heres another fun bone. this one is the prefrontal bone of the upper skull.
  19. dinodigger

    Dimetrodon humerus

    Hey gang heres another beautiful specimen from this week- wonderful sub adult ddon humerus. Really great bone to show the incredible musculature these guys had on their limbs. very strong animals. Planning on attempting to finish up plastering a block tomorro that contains 3 ddon maxillae and 2 lower jaws, all of which appear to be separate individuals of varied age. cheers chris. and JP i promise not to bleed on any bones tomorro.

    Dimetrodon Skull bones

    Hey gang here is this afternoons find- a really nice premaxilla from a big ddon. The premaxillary canine is equisite. This is the snout of a dimetrodon. cheers chris

    Big Dimetrodon Fang

    Hi everyone, got out this afternoon to work the site and found a beautiful large Dimetrodon maxillary fang, shed. Wonderful preservation. This would have come from a hefty size ddon.
  22. dinodigger

    Dimetrodon neural spine

    Hi gang, got out today and spent some time in the bone bed and found some wonderful material including this nice young Dimetrodon fin spine. The day was topped by two left ddon maxillae with very nice chompers- different species as well.
  23. dinodigger

    Dimetrodon clavicle

    Got out to the site this morning for a few hours and found this really beautiful young Ddon clavicle. Magnificent preservation and pre prepped by the wonderfully dense clays. One of my guys found another clavicle twice as large. will post some more site photos soon. cheers chris

    Dimetrodon tooth

    hi gang, just needed to take advantage of the cool front... 90 instead of 100. plus the rains always produce some nice washout material. Had to hike in a mile because of the muddy roads. This is a beautiful shed maxillary fang from a good size ddon. We were lucky enough to find both parts of the tooth within a meter of each other. Good day.

    varanosaurus and friends

    how adorable are these femora?! The longer of the two is a varanosaur and the other is a bit of a mystery. I suspect its a baby Secodontosaurus with the short shaft and immature ossification. Age is lower Permian.
