  1. Hyracodon Skull

    Good evening I have a Hyracodon skull. Nearly complete, but does have some putty work done to the upper. Excellent teeth. I have two of these and wouldnt mind losing one. I just wanted to see what any of you had to trade of equal value. Not really looking for anything in particualar. Show me what you are willing to trade!
  2. Hello I'm a newbie fossil collector (and newly active member) who happens to several interesting fossils for a decent price from our favorite auctions sites 1st is are Knightia. The seller claims that they are not restored or enhanced 2nd set are 4 Spinosaurus teeth. The seller claims that cracks have been repaired, but no restoration or composition has been made (Pictures 2-9 of teeth in pairs) 3rd is a Lycoptera which the seller claims is not restored or enhanced 4th are plates of Elrathia Trilobites from Wheeler Formation 5th are Fossil Ferns from Llewellyn Formation 6th is a Hyracodon jaw fragment I would like to ask if the sellers' description of the items are accurate and/or if they are restored, enhanced or composites. Cheers!
  3. Hyracodon?

    Hello TFF. This was brought to me today with no location info. It looks like Oligocene White River Group. Person who brought it in said it was collected by his grandparents who took trips to S. Dakota, etc. It is pretty "beat up". My first thought was Hyracodon from the White River Group. It's not Oreodont. Teeth are heavily eroded. The matrix is more reddish than anything I have collected in Nebraska, so maybe it's from S. Dakota? Thoughts? @Nimravis, @jpc (darn blurry pics. I even used a copy stand and timer...) Labial Lingual Occlusal (lingual side toward bottom)
  4. Partial Rhino Jaw prep

    I got this broken up jaw recently and finished putting it together (and some cleaning) today. I still have a little matrix to remove, but it's already good looking Its from the White River Formation in Wyoming. I'm not 100% certain on ID but I'd pretty sure it can be called Subhyracodon sp.
  5. Astragalus Dilemma ?

    My post comparing astragalus (ankle bone) generated some doubt/question as to the proper identification of a hyracodon astraglus I bought recently. So, I bought a subhyracodon astragalus from the same person found in the same area for comparison. Doubt arose from some forum users if the fossil I bought as a hyracodon astragalus since it agreeably doesn't have the characteristics of a rhino type animal. The hyracodon is thought to be the earliest ancestor of the rhino or general classification of such animals. The fossils I picture are from Pennington County, South Dakota, White River formation, Oligocene era. I searched the internet high and low, inside and out, relentlessly seeking a good clear picture of an hyracodon astragalus and failed miserably. I read many articles describing the hyracodon and in the end seemed to know less than when I started. The internet is a vast ocean of information but I find more and more conflicting, incomplete or simply misleading information. Getting clear definitive data can be difficult or impossible. My suspicion is maybe it could be somewhat misleading to classify the hyracodon in the rhino family of animals since most everything I read said it was more horse like in appearance. The subhyracodon astragalus is amazingly similar to that of a modern horse. Yet, the subhyracodon as described was a true rhino in appearance so it should be no surprise it's astragalus looks like one of a rhino. The other part of this story is I bought the two astragalus from a well established, well respected dealer who sells a lot of Oligocene era fossils. He also operates a web site dedicated to the White River formation. If anyone should know I figure it's him and have always trusted his judgement concerning the identification of the fossils I bought from him. Sure, no one's perfect but that would be a major boo boo for someone with his experience and reputation.
  6. Hyracodon vertebrae and jaw

    From the album Jerry's Really Old Stuff

    Mandible and articulated vertebrae from the White River Formation Douglas, Wyoming. The hyracodon was an early ancestor of the rhino which lived during the Oligocene era, sometimes called the "running rhino". The animal was about the size of a cow and one of the larger animals of it's time when most animals were very small.
