  7. I am pretty much giddy right now because we were able to make a significant addition to our program. We are acquiring a partial Pterosaur wing bone from the Niobrara Chalk. It was sold as a Pteranodon which is what we will go with for the program though the actual ID is probably more accurately stated as Pterosaur indet. What makes this important to us is this gives us something other than a few small Kem Kem teeth to represent Pterosaurs in our programs and this also gives us another touch fossil that kids will really love. As we learned last spring, kids love Pterosaurs and it is q shock to many of them when we tell them that they were not dinosaurs. I think getting to touch a real Pterosaur wing bone will offset that shock quite a bit. This is also a huge fossil for us in that it helps us add to a section of the 4th grade Dinosaur program that we recently decided to add. We want to spend a little time on the Western Interior Seaway. It helps us paint a more accurate picture of what the US looked like at that time and helps us give a more in-depth record of what non-dinosaur creatures ruled the sea and sky when dinos ruled the land. So here it is, a partial 12" section of Pterosaur wing from Cretaceous Kansas
  8. 3 Day Trip with my girl

    Hi Folks, I am planning out my first long road trip to collect with my youngest daughter for next week.(she's 13 and we have our local Pennsylvanian rocks we collected together for years, but I have been overseas working for a year, and I am getting ready to go back to do one more year, and I want to do something fun with her and she asked to go look at rocks and collect since she knows it's my favorite thing I never get to do) Anyway, I've been out of country until about 2 weeks ago, and I know there's been a ton of rain in Oklahoma, and I am curious if I should try to head to Mineral Wells and Jacksboro in Texas, and maybe head back towards Arkansas, or should I head north to Kansas and maybe cross over into Missouri. I'm at a loss since I don't get much US news in Vietnam, so I have no idea what everyone's weather has been like, and I'm not looking for honey hole suggestions, just a few places I can take her that she can find stuff and we can just have some time together. Pay sites are okay too if you have some suggestions. Thanks, Jim
  9. Unusual river find

    Picked this up on the river after the big flooding, I usually find bison but this seems too slender to be bison. I put a cow/bison tibia next to it for comparison. I know it’s not a fossil but if I posted on other sites i know id hear human over and over. I thought maybe horse but looking at my comparative book horse tibia are more beefy than a cow. Elk maybe? Some Pleistocene fauna? It’s heavy ish but it’s not fossilized
  10. my first true bone?

    Found this this weekend. It is heavy for its size and when I put a large hot needle to multiple areas it didn't even burn let alone smell. I think I found my first fossil bone. I know its not a lot to go on and I dont need a 100% id but id like an idea what it may be and I know you guys are crazy good at this stuff. it was found on a limestone bluff in southeast Kansas in Pennsylvanian age rock. in a later picture I show some fossils from the same area. there is a layer of shale mixed in. that's about all the helpful info I can give. I dont understand why theres a limit on picture size but im going for quality so sorry about the multiple posts.
  11. Fossilized gum and teeth ?

    I need help identifying these teeth and petrified gums. My neighbor received a load of gravel from a quarry in Kansas. I asked if i could look for fossils etc. And I found these teeth. They are 1 1/2 inches long. Thank you
  12. Plesiosaur tooth

    Since I've recently been honored by the forum, I thought I'd add a little extra this month. Here is a nice little plesiosaur tooth I was lucky enough to find in the Lincoln limestone yesterday. It is my first plesiosaur from this location.

  14. Shark teeth in Kansas

    Hello all I just joined this place so sorry if I posted this in the wrong area. Can anyone give me an idea on where to look for shark teeth in Kansas. I have found 3 at castle rock but it definitely gets searched a lot. I have asked permission on some private land in that area and everyone has said no. So how would you go about getting permission and what other areas should I check? Tia
  15. I find it interesting seeing how others collect and prep, so I thought others might like seeing how I do in the chalk of western Kansas. First though, let me say I dont claim to be an expert at all. I make lots of mistakes, and am still learning. I found this fish last summer, and I contacted fellow member "Xiphanctius" for advice. This was the biggest jacket I've ever done, and I am thankful for his advice. Now to the pictures! This first one is showing after removing some chalk over the skull. There was a little wash area that had exposed the front of the skull. One piece of the top jaw ( with no teeth) was found eroded out along with some pectoral fin pieces.
  16. Possible Horse Tooth

    A friend of mine went fishing at this location. He found an object that he wanted me to identified. To the best of my research, I have discovered that this is a possible horse tooth (3L Molar) and it is fossilized. I am guessing it could be 16 - 18 million years old. I would love to hear more from you guys on this.
  17. Kansas Fossil - Saline River

    Found these around Saline River in Kansas. Black with striations and crystals. Found in or near limestone.
  18. Janassa tooth discoloration

    Hey guys! I shared with you a few months ago my janassa toothplate, but the tooth has been showing some signs of progressive discoloration. It is slowly starting to grey in some areas, but’s never been exposed to vinegar or any real form of fossil prep. It is not moved around either so it’s not getting dinged up. Is this cause for alarm? I know only parts of the fossil are changing now, but I just want to ensure that the fossil isn’t going to be damaged by this in the future. Thank you.
  19. Fossil geodes

    I found these super cool fossils turned geode today. Any idea what kind of crystals they might be? I was thinking calcite or quartz. Much appreciated. (Edit: Doesn’t react to vinegar, so silica or clear quartz maybe?)
  20. Crinoid?

    Hey guys! I found this fossil in east Kansas (Pennsylvanian) and thought it was a crinoid. However the shape is different looking. Do you think it’s a crinoid? Thank you! (The 2 parts belong together and yeah it’s pretty eroded)
  21. Byrozoan of some sort?

    Only found one like this in my area, know what it might be? Thanks a lot! (Sorry inches is all I have measurement wise)
  22. My brother found this years ago in the flinthills region of Kansas. He lost it for years, and just re-discovered it in some storage. I know next to nothing about things like this. Can anyone give me an I'd, or any info I can pass on to him?
  23. Rock or fossil

    Hey guys! Total newb here, I was hunting for some Pennsylvanian brachs when I found these strange looking circular halves.(they don’t go together) Could they be fossils or are they just plain old rocks? My vote is just plain rocks.
  24. I just finished a new display of self collected Kansas predators. I was inspired my fellow member Terrance Skinners similar display. I love it.
  25. Plate of armor?

    Hey guys! I was in one of my favorite Pennsylvanian spots in East Kansas finding the usual brachs and bryos when all of a sudden this popped out at me. Any ideas as to what it might be? I’ve never seen something like this in my area before. Thanks.
