  2. Colorado is giving up the goods.

    One of the great things about being a geologist in Colorado is that I get to see a lot of places most people don't. How I see it, when I'm not in the office...and trust me there is more armchair time than there is field time, but when I'm not in the office, I'm being paid to scout new fossil locations. The company is just lucky I have a GPS in my company truck! But to be honest, they are totally cool with me taking detours...I digress. One day I was driving to BFE for work, and noticed something beautiful in the background. I thought to myself, that looks deliciously fossiliferous. It took a bit of leg work and schmoozing, but I was able to gain access to this parcel of land. My initial thoughts and research were correct, we immediately began to find chunks of fossilized bone. Soon, we had found a large portion of Oligiocene turtle. We could only spend a few hours there the first day, but at least now I knew I was on to something HOT. Being the awesome, handsome, and extremely nice guy that I am, I offered to take a number of colleagues out for fossil hunting. I work with a million geologists, and the odd thing about geologists is that most of them are only into minerals, not fossils(lucky for me) Two of my closer friends accepted the offer, and we were off! It wasn't long before one found a large portion of tortoise shell and the other an oreodont jaw. I only found a bison But it is fine, I spent most of my time helping those guys extract and preserve their finds. To be honest, I was treating it like another scouting trip. Anyway, I'm currently prepping the tortoise, and have already prepped the jaw. As soon as the snows fully melt, I will have my hands full. I'm super stoked about this location. Here are some pics. HH all. -J
  3. Quick fossil jaw id

    Hey everyone! Sorry I’ve been absent from the forums lately. Been doing the geology gig and found a new fossil spot near home. white river formation-what’s the jaw? Any ideas? I’m not used to these western fossils!
  4. Found this here in western Colorado I have done some looking online closest thing i can find is fossil/petrified palm wood it would be from the Niobrara Formation, Smoky Hill Member and is Upper/Late Cretaceous. What do you guys think? Did a quick polish too quick as you can see all the scratches haha Thanks anyone that can help
  5. Fossilized juniper?

    This was excavated at Baculite Mesa in Pueblo CO a few years ago. We were given a possible identification of it being a fossilized juniper. Any other input or verification would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  6. Found in Pueblo CO

    This piece was excavated from the Fountain Creek on the north side of Pueblo, CO. It was stockpiled in another area of town and my husband brought it home to me. It is so interesting! I think it is some kind of a fossilized plant from the prehistoric ages. Any ideas out there?
  7. Is this a egg?

    Hi there, so I came across this rock awhile ago. I found it in the mountains just west of fort Collins, co. I've spent a lot of time trying to find information on it but not having much luck. It's pretty hard, doesn't leave a streak and has weird layers. It's around 2 inches or so and round-ish. Hope the pictures are good enough. If not, I can always take more. Thank you for any info!

  20. I have researched for a while now on these bones i have in my collection and only thing i can find that is pretty close to what i have are sauropod metatarsals. Can anybody maybe confirm this or what they may be from? The 3D models are very accurate i put the measurements on the 3d models just click on the annotations. They are from the morrison formation here in Colorado, thanks to anybody that can help! 1st bone: 2nd bone:
  21. Douglas Pass, Colorado Finds

    My partner and I visited Douglas Pass, Colorado last August: Eocene, Green River Formation, Parachute Member. The site represents a very shallow lake bed and is known primarily for fossil plants and insects. Recently I unwrapped her finds. The first one I think is some type of fossil seed. It is about a half inch long. The second, I think is a partial insect larvae, about an 8th of an inch. Let me know what you think. Thanks.
  22. old colorado fossil site

    As a young kid - in the late 60s - we went fossil collecting not too far from Denver (where my parent's friends lived). I think we paid but I always thought it was a state park or something. I collected fossil leaves like the attached. Does anyone know the spot? Thanks
