  1. I need help identifying these three specimens found at Ramanessin Brook. 1. The cutting edge and root lead me to believe it's a mosasaur tooth. 0.5in long 2. A worn mosasaur or enchodus tooth fragment? 0.75in long 3. Bone. 1.25in long Thank you
  2. I ordered a couple of caliper stands and one is for this little beauty! This is Hoploscaphites nicoletti. One of the best I have. I now wish I could find a caliper stand that is black in color. I think the shiny brass takes away from the specimen? Also, I just wish you could see the real color this has. The picture doesn't do it justice. RB

  14. what a warm beautiful day,wife and I made our rounds at mutable stops and found some cool finds,,,,,but some help needed with what appears to be fish tooth after the first 2 pics,,,,thanks
  15. From rocks in Colorado, evidence of a 'chaotic solar system' University of Wisconsin-Madison, February 22, 2017 The paper is: Ma, C., S. R. Meyers, and B. B. Sageman. Theory of chaotic orbital variations confirmed by Cretaceous geological evidence. Nature, 2017; 542 (7642): 468-470 DOI: 10.1038/nature21402 Related paper: Sageman, B. B., J. Rich, M. A. Arthur, G.

  16. I acquired some lobster concretions while in Quartzite and was asked to show the prep process, so here goes. I picked out what I thought was the best 3 and tossed the others aside. This is #2. Not a lot of 'glue up' on this one. This one is hollow so whats going to happen is going to be quite interesting to say the least. Hollow fossils can be a real pain in the you know what and a real challenge!!! I already put in a ton of glue in what hollow area that was exposed in the break but what other hollow area's are yet to be seen. All I can say is,,, "wish me luck please". RB
  17. Just found this bone out of the eagle Ford group in north central Texas. 86-90 mya. I'm guessing it's mosasaur or turtle? One end is broken off. 4 inches length. If so can we get a bone ID from it? Limb bone? Thanks for any help.
  18. Recently obtained this nice Mosasaur jaw from the Niobrara Chalk of Lane County, Kansas; Cretaceous time period. No restoration has been done, but some stabilizing glue has been applied to the teeth. All that aside....any ideas as to what species it may be?
  19. I came across this tooth in a scud box that a friend of mine had. He hunts the same creeks in SE Alabama that I do and the creek that he stated that the tooth was found in cuts through the middle of the Blufftown formation. The only thing I can think that it could be is an Otodus and Im flat out curious what y'all think. It's definitely a one of a kind piece from our area though, regardless of what it is! It's 1-7/16" long and 1-1/8" wide. Any comments would be greatly appreciated!
  20. Another weekend find, looks like a broken Vertebre - it's got a different shape to it, seems more oblong than round based on the shape of the half I have. Rick noted looks sort of like a Plesiosaur vert? If anyone can ID it from what fragment we have, that would be AWESOME and much appreciated! Let me know if you need more photos. Found: Greensmill Run, Greenville, NC. In a hole with an array/time span of things from cretaceous to native american artifacts (enchodus teeth, crow shark, shale bone, great white, giant white, modern tiger shark teeth and pottery.
  21. This is the second kellumi I have added to collections. It is from a different location and is extremely clean.
  22. Finally made it out to the Sulphur. It's been 9 months so I was eager to get a big hunt in. Pulled an all dayer, 10 miles in the mud. Was quite a workout and I'm still sore. We haven't had a big rise in a while so I wasn't expecting much but I ended up with a decent haul. Favorites are the jaw sections and coprolite. Looking forward to spring storms hitting soon
  23. In January 1999, two new choristoderans - aquatic living diapside reptiles - from the Jehol biota (Early Cretaceous of Liaoning , China) were described by the "Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoantropology" (IVPP) and by the "Beijing Natural History Museum" (BVC) under the names Sinohydrosaurus lingyuanensis Li et al., 1999 und Hyphalosaurus lingyuanensis Gao et al., 1999. It turned out that both institutes independently described slab and counterslab of the same individuum. H. lingyuanensis is the valid name, this description was published slightly earlier - just by a couple of days. This is a hatchling, adult Hyphalosaurs can reach almost 1.5m in length. Hyphalosaurus is often faked and sold under the designation Jurassic Nothosauria. Lit.: Smith, J. and Harris J.
