  1. I was recently given this amazing fossil from an old man before he passed away. While he couldn’t remember exactly where it was found, he did tell me a general area in Wyoming that is known for Eocene fossils. Any help with identification is greatly appreciated!

    Green River formation Fossil ID

    On August 12, 2021, I went with my family to a fossil dig in Kemmerer, Wyoming. Two friends from Japan went with us also. We all found a lot of fossils that day. The two friends from Japan even found a small whole Phareodus testis! There was, however, one fossil that was unusual, and we couldn’t get the exact species. Picture is attached. All the people at the quarry said was that it’s a wood imprint, or something like that, I don’t exactly remember. Here is the question. Is this a wood fossil? Second question, if it is wood, is it po

    Pterosaur Wyoming

    Hello, Found on internet an Pterosaur tooth from Albany County, Wyoming - USA, Morrison Formation. What do you other people tink about it. Is it Pterosaur? And what about the species? It is named Pteranodon, but that cant be right.

    White River Prep - Rodent

    I've been in the lab this fall/winter but preparation has taken a back seat to the plastics/replicas operations. As things start to wind down with plastics around this time of year, I'm embarking on my next prep project. This specimen is from the same Wyoming locality as the Herpetotherium I posted about recently but was found many years ago(~15?). It appears to just be an upper skull of a small rodent but there is some hope for lowers. I pulled this piece out of its field packaging in April but just now starting preparation in earnest. So far, all I've done is rough prep around the bound

    Who and what is this?

  7. I purchased a andolousiana trilobite today in Wyoming and I'm not 100% sure on the legitimacy of it. Any thoughts would definitely be helpful!
  8. 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!

    Morrison Megalosaurid or Allosaurid?

    I bought this tooth and the seller named this 'Allosaurus', but the serrations are more dense and the mesial carina stops far before the root. Is this a megalosaurid or allosaurid? Anyone can help? The base width/base length = 4.2mm/12.3mm Locality: Morrison formation, Wyoming Distal carina Mesial carina
  10. Greetings, y'all. Its been a busy summer. No time to post much here, but I did get out quite a few times this year, even though I successfully turned 60 years old this summer. Let's see what happened in my little world last weekend. During a May trip, I went to one of my usual hunting areas in southwestern Wyoming where I have collected mammal, croc, fish, and turtle fossils from the Bridger Fm over the past two decades. There is a lot more terrain out there for me to explore so I decided to check out a new area a few miles further down the two-track. Here is a photo of where I ended up
  11. Hi all... A friendly shameless plug to invite you folks to tune in to PBS here in the states (and maybe Canada) this evening for the second installment of Prehistoric Road Trip. Check your local listings. https://www.pbs.org/show/prehistoric-road-trip/ I will doing the Happy Fossil Dance (it is in the previews) with the Tate Museum's rex, named Lee Rex.

  13. The Green River Formation is one of the most well-known fossil sites in the world, occupying present-day Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. This Lagerstätte has been noted for its well-preserved fish fossils, as well as numerous invertebrates, plants, and sometimes even reptiles and birds. Green River fossils are Eocene-aged, at 53.5 to 48.5 million years old. Thankfully, not only are Green River fossils attractive, they also remain affordable to the casual collector. Allow me to present my humble collection. Crocodile tooth Borealosuchus sp. Southwest Wyoming

    Weird Coprolite ID

    So, I was going through my fossils from my last trip to Kemmerer Wyoming. One of them accidentally split, revealing this. It looks like a kind of Coprolite, but I’m not sure. It’s got scales in it, but it’s too flat to be regular Coprolite. I suspect it is stingray Coprolite, as the people there told us to watch out for it, because they have been finding a lot. Can someone help me ID this? Jared

  20. 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

    Red Desert Find

    Hello, and thank you for taking the time to have a look at these fossils I've come across recently. I live in the Red Desert of Wyoming and these weren't too far from where I live. Very unique, haven't seen quartz veins like this in fossilized wood aside from some small examples here and there. The other I do believe to be bone, possibly a vertebrae? Also think it may have had opal included in its mineral replacement. There's an area on it exposed to and shows impressive mineralization. Your professional input is greatly appreciated! Again, thank you!
  23. Given the success I had in the White River fm. the week before, my third and final outing of the summer was just icing on the cake to an already phenomenal fossil hunting session. But what I would come to find is that this figurative cake would be getting a massive dose of that sugary goodness, and man it felt sweet. This time around I would be joined by my best friend Michael (@Mickeyb06)who would be taking on his first ever fossil hunting adventure in Wyoming's Lance fm. While it wasn't my intention for this to be his first experience in the field, we made the most of it and it was gre
  24. Day 5 in South Dakota was a total bust for my son and me. The section of the quarry we worked has large ironstone and clay boulders, but also has large bones. We sat next to a jacketed femur and worked back the wall face. We didnt find more than a few small bits at the end of the day, but I said that something big was there. Big rocks = big bones. Sure enough, Walter sat down in our spot 3 days later and immediately uncovered a ceratopsian dentary! By this point were were already on to our next destination in Kemmerer, Wyoming. 3 days of splitting shale for fish, hoping for th
  25. What a trip my son and I had this year! We started out in the Hell Creek fm of South Dakota. This was a special trip through Paleo Adventures for his "veteran" guests who have already spent a few years with him and could operate without supervision. We started out hunting a new ranch. This property is virgin ground with LOTS of acreage that needed exploration. The group was split into 3 teams, each taking a different area. Our team was further split into pairs. So, it was my son and me, exploring for new outcrops. The sun was intense, the temperature hot, and hours of hiking and sta
