  1. Made an incredible discovery at home tonight when I noticed tiny baby dinosaur tracks about only 5.1mm long on a ripple slab I had found. I've never seen baby footprints so small before, so I'm amazed. No wonder I didn't notice them for nearly two weeks after I had found them this month! Since there seems to be a partial adult on the edge it makes me wonder if this dinosaur was walking with its new born baby.
  2. I have started recently being able to hunt dinosaur footprints and while I don't want to cover the ones that are naturally visible I may want some of the lower quality or hard to see tracks to stand out. Anyone prepare tracks themselves or know of a good clear coating? I've heard of rustoleum but I am unsure if it's paint or spray I should be using.
  3. Dinosaur Tracks

    Hello, I'm wondering if there is a way you can make a dinosaur track (or any type of fossil track) pop out a bit more. I'm usually against altering fossils, but what if the track was faint? Is there a way you can make it show a bit more? p.s. I do not possess any dinosaur tracks, this is just something I've been wondering about.
  4. SKYE DINO PRINTS

    They keep finding great things on Skye! http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-43620237
  5. My beautiful wife scheduled a three night stay at a cabin in a Thousand Trails campground near Lake Texoma. We were to arrive on Sunday and check out on Wednesday. So, I figured that, since I hadn't been fossil hunting in months, I would schedule a trip to central Texas to follow the Texoma trip. I set up a rendezvous point in Fairfield, Texas to meet my dad on that Wednesday, and head off toward Brownwood and Cisco, Texas. I figured that the fossil hunt would begin then. But that's not quite how things played out... My two oldest daughters and I met my wife and youngest daughter in Salado, Texas on Saturday, October 14th. They had left the previous morning to spend a day with my mother-in-law in Waco and Salado. We spent Saturday night in Salado and then parted ways with my mother-in-law on Sunday morning and headed toward Lake Texoma. As we drove through Waco, my wife asked if we wanted to take a detour. She had never been to Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose, Texas, and she thought the girls would enjoy seeing the dinosaur tracks in the Paluxy River. I got really excited. I hadn't been there since I was a kid, and at that time, the river was high and the tracks were not visible. So we adjusted our GPS to take us to Glen Rose. We pulled in and stopped off to get a map of the park. We then drove straight to the spot where Roland T. Bird made his first discovery. It was amazing. The water was low and gave us a clear view of the trackways in the river. Above you can see both the sauropod and theropod tracks, They are a little obscured by mud, but they are still very visible. We left the R.T. Bird site and went to another place called the Ballroom Track Site, where so many tracks go in so many directions, it was like the theropods were dancing. It was in slightly deeper water, but it was still beautiful! The rippling water was crystal clear and the girls couldn't help but get into the water, even as a cool front brought chilly winds down the river valley. My wife loved it. She told me that Dinosaur Valley State Park was our next camping destination. Before we left, we stopped off by the iconic Tyrannosaurus Rex and Apatosaurus models built for the 1964-65 World's Fair in New York. They were permanently installed at Dinosaur Valley in 1970 at the park's dedication. We left Dinosaur Valley and drove the rest of the way to our cabin at Lake Texoma, arriving just after dark. We settled in and tried to decide what we wanted to do the next day. It was Monday, and we figured there had to be something for the girls to do nearby. We quickly discovered that our options were limited. It had turned too cold for the pool at the campgrounds. The putt-putt at the campground was okay, but the girls quickly tired of it. And most of the other recreational equipment was not well kept, or available. So, we decided to leave the campground to find something for the girls to do. I had mentioned that I would like to check out the Permian site at Waurika, Oklahoma. It was only two hours away, and this was the closest I had ever been to the site. My wife was a bit miffed by the lack of things for the girls to do, so she said "Let's go." I jumped at the chance. I had done no research on the site, other than what I had read about it on TFF. I wish I had consulted the TFF experts before we left, because I had no idea of the best places to look. We focused mainly on the sandy floor and reddish rocks, and found nothing. When we returned to the cabin, I asked where we should have looked. Jesuslover340 informed me that the gray colored exposures were the places to find the best material. So, we came away empty handed, with only one major discovery. My wife wouldn't let me take it home, though... Continued in next post...
  6. I have a secret place in Texas in which I've found many excellent fossils of sea creatures, such as clams or mollusks and other shellfish. I may also have found bones of some kind, and saw impressions that may have been dinosaur tracks. I am no paleontologist and would not know what made the impressions, but I know that dinosaur tracks were found in other nearby areas. In particular, I found large, intact, fossilized shells there that match some of the photos of "bivalves" I've seen online. I found many smaller cone shaped shell fossils, and oddly shaped rocks that may have been bones. Plus other things, such as rocks that seemed to contain tiny plant or animal fossils. The fossils were plentiful and easy to find, with little or no digging needed, so I may be the only one who knew of this place, which is in a washed out gulley in a remote part of a public city or county park (NOT a state park). My question -- can people legally gather fossils from such a place? Would paleontologists be interested in knowing about such a place? I no longer live near there and worry that one of Texas' new toll roads may have destroyed the site by now. Should I have said something, to prevent that? Unless somebody else has discovered the place, there are probably still some fossils around the site, even if a toll road was put in, but they may no longer lay atop the ground like they once did. I accidentally forgot to pack my fossil collection when moved, so I have no samples or photos to show anybody.
  7. World’s biggest dinosaur footprint discovered in ‘Australia’s own Jurassic Park’ By Sarah Kaplan, Washington Post, March 27, 2017 https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/speaking-of-science/wp/2017/03/27/worlds-biggest-dinosaur-footprint-discovered-in-australias-own-jurassic-park/?utm_term=.fd44d15ca339 Kimberley fossil tracks are Australia's 'Jurassic Park' By Jonathan Amos, BBC Science, March 27, 2017 http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-39405167 The open access paper is: Salisbury, S.W., Romilio, A., Herne, M.C., Tucker, R.T. and Nair, J.P., 2016.

  8. I have been asked many times to verify what someone thinks are dino tracks. Many times they turn out to be equipment scratch/cuts or natural water formed stones. Never did I ever think I would have permission to find and recover a dino footprint. We did not have to cut them out or cast them the natural casts were laying there just waiting to be picked!!!!! We found two sets of trails going North and South. 30+ and counting prints and casts. About half have been exposed to heavy wash and are obscure but they are there none the less. As we explored the area we did manage to find the strata and turn some stones and voila there they are. More to come Private property with permission. I am stoked to the max. The one pictured bottom left is one that I turned a stone and there it was! [i got to keep this one] I left it with him to keep the find together. I found several but it was his discovery and he deserves the credit. This is the same guy that found the starfish ["Copellaster" Adamsi] in the Britton member of the Eagleford in Dallas Co. Tx. [s. Adams] My preliminary guess would be Hadrosaur prints.. I will post more pics 'in situ" when he sends me the ones he took. [As usual I had no camera with me] These pics were taken in his front yard.

  9. Bandera Texas!

    So I am having an AWESOME trip in Bandera Texas. I found the first petrified wood I've ever heard of being found here, I went to a public park and uncovered a sauropod trackway that is flanked on one side by a theropod track. I found I cave that is made of coral with gastropods and clams in the coral, and a very large gastropod beside the river. I have even managed to rescue a couple stranded longnose gar! I am going to keep updating this topic over the next couple days, and I am going to attempt to make casts of the dinosaur tracks!
  10. Help Please!

    I got these tracks a a Christmas present. Recently I noticed a growth covering the tracks. It's spreading quickly. I MUST know what to do or how to get it off! I am getting VERY nervous. Before growth: Now:
  11. It's been a fine few days for trace fossil enthusiasts! Here is a new open access article reviewing dinosaur trace fossils from southwestern Europe. Vila, B., Oms, O., Fondevilla, V., Gaete, R., Galobart, À., Riera, V., Canudo, J. 2013. The latest succession of dinosaur tracksites in Europe: Hadrosaur ichnology, track production and palaeoenvironments. PLoS ONE 8,9: e72579. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0072579 Brian Switek picked up on this one too and has another nice write up about it here. The art associated with his blog post is especially nice as well. Enjoy!
