  1. I posted a topic - Middle Devonian of Livingston County New York - recently and decided to include the other shelves in the display case. Also a fellow member requested to see more in the room so its their fault I had many more Oligocene fossils at one time and this is what I kept over the years (either I found it or it means something to me). Im sure there will be questions for me. Thanks, Mikeymig
  2. So in late June early July my wife, 2 boys (8 & 2.5), my father in-law and mother-in-law and I are going to take a 2 week road trip around the US. We'll be leaving Maryland and heading down to Memphis, Tennessee followed by Nashville then on to Texas and ending up in Albuquerque, New Mexico at my brother-in-law's for a few days, then off to the Grand Canyon, up to Dinosaur National monument, over to Hot Springs, South Dakota to the Mammoth site, Mt Rushmore, and Crazy Horse Monument, then to the Badlands in South Dakota, and then start making our way back to home. We're taking some new paths and going back over some previous ones. I am interested in doing 1-2 hour fossil and/or rock and mineral collecting leg stretches not terribly far off US 40 between Memphis and Albuquerque. Honestly anywhere else near the places I listed and anywhere along US 90 back to Chicago and down to Indianapolis, then US 70 the rest of the way east towards home. I'm hoping if I ask on here I can get a handful of options for the trip, we may only do two or three depending on time, weather and general feedback from the rest of the family. I have messaged PFooley about the Albuquerque/Rio Puerco area. After we get back I will have to make a write up of the adventure, it should be a great trip full of geologic and paleontological fun. Thanks for any information, Adam
  3. Big Miocene/Oligocene Mammal Jaw????

    I bought this jaw at a fossil show and the only info that came with it was "Badlands USA". The matrix looks Miocene Arikaree to me and not Oligocene but I'm not sure of course. Any information from a mammal/tooth collector will be appreciated. I have an idea of what it might be but I don't want to say anything until I hear from you all. Thanks, Mikey
  4. I bought a non-working Comco MB-101 air abrasion unit. I've got everything working but have a question about the foot pedal or the lack of one. The unit did not have a power cord or foot pedal when I bought it. I contacted Comco they no longer have a parts list or manual. I would like to know the manufacture name and model of the foot pedal if anyone has one to reduce my chances of picking the wrong one. I'm currently using a toggle switch. Thanks, Hoffy
  5. geology question

    I was in an agate field in South Dakota just south of Badlands Park. Cretaceous era. I collected a few not-so-special agates and some jasper, and the pictured rock, which I thought was wind polished jasper- but it broke and had what looks to be brachiopods inside. I assume this is sedimentary or metamorphic. What is the relation between the agates in this region and the kind of specimen here? Why are there so many agate fields in this area of S Dak?
  6. Identification

    Hey guys, i found this bone in southern alberta, i was curious to know what it could be. It is nearly impossible to identify i know, it is a small chunk. But what i find odd is that it is such a flat bone. Smooth surface on either side, the marrow still within. I just done know what sort of bone is this flat
  7. Possible scute?

    Hey everyone, I was out hiking in southern Alberta when i discovered this guy. I thought it could possibly be a scute? Maybe from an ankylosaur? The reason why i think it could be a scute is necause of the ridge in the centre. Any help with identification would be appreciated!
  8. Hi! Back with more from the estate sale. I'm guessing this is a jaw section from a Titanothere? It appears to be, but I'm new to the ID game and want to be sure. The estate contained other smaller teeth that also look like Titanothere/Brontothere, but I don't have an exact location as to where it was found. There were many Stylemys turtles in there as well, and I've had those looked at by a paleontologist at SDSM&T and they said the turtles were likely found in the White River formation of the Badlands. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
  9. Fossil bone

    Found by a friend in Badlands National park South Dakota. Looking for any help on wether it's mammal or reptile.
  10. Tooth identification

    My son found an interesting fossil tooth when searching just outside the badlands in South Dakota. I've taken it to two people who have a varied range of mammal it could be. Was hoping to nail it down here. So far I have
  11. A stroll in the Alberta Badlands

    Hello, Went into the Alberta badlands (Dinosaur Park Formation) last week for some fossil hunting. Usually I'm enjoying myself so much I rarely take pictures but I forced myself on this day to stop and take a few. Walking into the coolies. Another shot of the badlands, what do they contain? Some of the hills are very fossil rich. See anything good? Closer look... Big bones all over (mostly Hadrosaur leg bones) Another broken femur tip.. My finds of the day (Hadrosaur toe bones, Ornithomimus claw/toe bone, Misc verts, etc) And my best find of the day a sizable theropod toe bone (a first for me). He need a little repair work. Thanks for reading!
  12. Badlands Vacation

    We are planning a vacation in June to the Badlands area in South Dakota. I am wanting to do a fossil dig. Somewhere that is not expensive or and would like to keep what I find. Is this just a pipe dream? Where do I start? I am studying to be a middle and high school teacher in Kansas. I have always love fossils. I even have a T-Rex skeleton tattoo! I did contact the Badlands Park and they said you can keep up to 25 lbs as long as it is not a vertebrate. Please help! Thank you!
  13. Stylemys turtle restoration

    Any ideas on how to remove the green lichen staining from this partially weathered turtle without doing damage?
  14. Articulated Spine from WHAT?

    Right up front, I apologize for the poor quality of the photos. I left the vertebrae in place so these are the only photos I have. This series of 8 vertebrae were found weathered out in what I believe to be Whitewater, Brule in the general area of Interior South Dakota Badlands. I would love to have an ID!
  15. The weather was a pleasant 20c so great to hike hours in the badlands and perfect to meander through the hoodoos and tackle a few precarious slopes. Overhead in the clear blue skies there were thousands of birds migrating south. All fossils are catch and release. The Red Deer River. The river cuts through and exposes various Cretaceous deposits for a few hundred kilometers before joining the South Saskatchewan River. At this site it exposes the Scollard and Horseshoe Canyon formations. Further south the Red Deer exposes the Dinosaur Park and Oldman formations. Other formations are exposed by the Bow, South Saskatchewan, Milk River and Oldman Rivers..
  16. Stylemys nebrascensis in situ

    From the album Fossil Discoveries

    I wanted to capture an angle that evoked the feeling of encountering this animal's fossilized remains where it may have actually died.

  17. Stylemys nebrascensis in situ

    From the album Fossil Discoveries

    I visited the Badlands National Park in spring 2016 and photographed this badly weathered fossil turtle where it died some 30 million years ago. I subsequently informed a park ranger where I had seen the specimen.

  18. This jaw section is from the Nebraska Badlands. Found near a Hyaenodon jaw. I'm no expert. Anyone know what this is from? My first tentative guess is three toed horse...Any experts?
  19. Prehistoric horse jaw. Mesohippus.

    From the album Badlands, Nebraska megafauna.

    This mesohippus jaw was found near the Hyaenodon. Not sure of species yet but I believe it to be a three toed horse.
  20. Coprolite, possibly carnivore?

    From the album Badlands, Nebraska megafauna.

    A coprolite found in the same area as the Hyaenodon jaw. Looks like something I would find at the park walking the dog so am tentatively thinking its from a carnivore.
  21. Hyaenodon (horridus?) right jaw.

    From the album Badlands, Nebraska megafauna.

    Hyaenodon jaw found in the Nebraska Badlands. I believe it to be horridus but am no expert.
  22. Hyaenodon (horridus?) left jaw.

    From the album Badlands, Nebraska megafauna.

    Hyaenodon jaw found in the Nebraska Badlands. I believe it to be horridus but am no expert.
