  1. Dino Dad 81

    Egg Shell take 2

    How about these? They're also from Weston co Wyoming (granted I bought these two, whereas I dug the previous-posted tooth and non-eggshell). Since we don't have anything from Lance to compare to, I suppose I'm really asking: (1) is it egg shell? (2) is it dino? (3) have you seen anything like it from JRf or HCf?
  2. Hello, I am making a great of in-situ pictures of my fossil hunting trips for this year. We now have a foot of snow in the ground so fossil hunting season is over. ☹️ These pictures occur in Wyoming, Montana, South Dakota and North Dakota. Mostly Cretaceous aged sites but some Eocene from ND. They are mostly tooth related. I hope everyone likes in-situ pics as much as I do!
  3. Grad student finds a new saber-toothed species, in a museum, University of Oregon, Department of Earth sciences Abstract The open access paper is: Barrett, P.Z., 2021. The largest hoplophonine and a complex new hypothesis of nimravid evolution. Scientific reports, 11(1), pp.1-9. Yours, Paul H.
  4. I know next to nothing about radioactivity-- enough to know licking fossils is inadvisable, although I'll admit that wasn't terribly disappointing news. What I'm wondering is whether specimens not radioactive enough to endanger a person are capable of damaging other specimens. Is there a need to segregate displays here, or am I just confused about the mechanics of this? My specific reason for asking is that at the moment I'm planning for my current favorite mineral specimen (which I am babying forever), an almandine garnet from Broken Hill, New South Wales, Australia, to share a small shelf ar
  5. Hello, this is a very small tooth that I had a hard time taking pictures of. I need a new camera or phone able to take nice up close pics!! This tooth was found at a site in Wyoming that I am unsure whether it is Lance or Mesa Verde formation wise. Anyway, this tooth is complete and very nice looking. I believe it is Ceratopsian but as to which species I am unsure. You can see the size of it as compared to my finger (sorry, I work with oil based materials and my fingers are stained up!). Please let me know what opinions y'all have!
  6. Hi I am going to Wyoming, Montana and maybe South Dakota with my brother in late May and very early June 2023. And we would of course like to look for dinosaur fossils. We know we are not allowed to collect on "State land". But can anyone help with contact to a private owner of land with dinosaurfossils. So we can pay for a couple of days and bring a few things home to Denmark. (I know of Paleoadventures). Hope someone can help us. Thank you and kind regards Torben

    Coprolite identification

    Hi everyone, I am extremely sick today, so I decided to go through my fossils I found in Wyoming over the years while laying in bed. While going through my fossils, I found a piece of large exposed Coprolite. I thought to myself, “I might as well try to extract it. I’ve got nothing else to do because I’m so sick.“ After about 10 minutes of working with it, I was able to extract it in one piece. Then, it broke in my hand into two pieces. To my surprise, inside the Coprolite where it broke, there were bones. Looks like fish bones. Whate
  8. Here is a great video from a geologist that explains how purported giant tree fossils form. Reminds me of what we try to do on the Forum: using geological principles and logic to determine if a rock is a fossil. Debunking purported fossils seem to be a Sisyphean task around here.
  9. Fossil Country - Wyoming PBS documentary Wyoming PBS documentary Yours, Paul H.
  10. Hey all. I had these pictures sent to me by a friend, and we're both totally stumped over what this possibly could be. It was found pretty densely surrounded by other shattered bone. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated- we've really been scratching our heads over this one!
  11. Hello, I believe this bone shows evidence of teeth scoring from a predator Dinosaur (raptor or other theropod) and I am asking for a confirmation of this. I found this a few days ago in Wyoming in a formation I believe may be the Lance but I am not sure. Teeth there include Archeroraptor, other Dromeausaurid (sp), triceratops, avaceratops, paralbula, myledaphus, hybodus shark, edmontosaurus, borealasucbus, brachychampsus, fish, a couple of mammal types, large theropods, Aublysodon?, lissodon, Ankylosaurid, melvius as the most commonly found specimens. Of course, none are common but just in com
  12. A new polycotylid plesiosaur has been recovered from the upper half of the upper member of the lower Maastrichtian (Late Cretaceous) Pierre Shale Formation of Wyoming: Serpentisuchops pfisterae, the snake-like crocodile face. The interesting aspect to this new discovery is that this polycotylid, contrary to most other known members of this clade (that is, all with the exception of the Turonian Thililua longicollis and Manemergus anguirostris from Morocco), has a elongated neck, convergent on those of elasmosauridae. The pertinent article can be found here: Scott Person

    Petrified Blue Forest

    I had the opportunity to cruise around Wyoming, Colorado, and Utah on my own for 5 days The first day of my fossil hunting excursion was to be spent at the Petrified Blue Forest site in Western Wyoming. Having been there before, I knew fragments of wood abound, many carrying the blue agate on it. But I was determined to find a “large” log this trip. I had researched how to up my odds and stopped at a hardware store the night before and purchased a shovel as step one. So early that morning, I found myself looking out at the vastness of this “forest” thinking where to start.
  14. On a recent trip out west, I ended my day of collecting petrified wood in the Farson, Wyoming area by driving to Vernal, Utah. On this trip through some gorgeous country, I was pleasantly surprised by occasional roadside signs telling of the geology that I was traveling through. And by the time I arrived in Vernal, I feel I had a better understanding of the local geology!!! Thanks to whoever was responsible for the signage. Here was my lesson!

    Mammoth Tooth ID

    Found this tooth on the Powder River in Wyoming. I don't know much but my best guess is a real young Mammoth tooth? Thanks for the help.

    Green River Formation Fish?

    Hello, Is this a Knightia eocaena? It's from the Green River Fm. of Wyoming, USA, and measures ~8.5 cm long. Thanks.
  17. In the summer of 2020 jpc and I had planned to get together in Eastern Wyoming to collect. That trip was unfortunately aborted by the coronavirus outbreak that year. This year, that conversation resumed and a new plan for a three day excursion in June emerged. I decided to make it a two week long car trip, driving all the way from New York, a longer car trip than any I've made in the past 25 years. That would afford me the opportunity to stop at some other sites on the way there and back, plus see some family. Another big reason for driving was an opportunity to visit and collect at the Big Ce
