    Finds on the KAW

    I've started my journey into finding places to hunt along the KAW. With advice from people here and some research on my own, this week I've done some "test pits" where I'd take an hour or less before work testing out via walking around a site and see what I can find, to see if it's worth returning to. And so far I've had great success. I've found multiple pieces of bone, teeth, shell and marine animals (Fusulinids, crinoids, bryozoans, etc). I made a longer visit to the best site I've found yet and recovered more pieces. It's all been just surface searching, with only minor digging in for part

    Public Hunting Areas-Questions

    I’ve read of 2 places here on FF where fossil hunting is allowed in KS. Monument Rocks and Castle Rock. I made my way out to both these places over the last few days since work is slow. At Monument Rocks there was a sign that specifically said fossil hunting wasn’t allowed. Can anybody give me any clarification on this? Also both places sort of had a main area but in the same general area there were many other exposures of the chalk that weren’t behind fences and easily accessible by foot. Are these other exposures also allowed to be hunted? From what I understand
  3. Hi guys! I am looking for new areas to hunt for rocks and fossils around the KC area. I have been to the Blue river, Kansas river, Cedar creek, Tuttle creek, Perry Lake, Mill creek, and abandoned quarry areas. Anyone have any general locations of where I can find some stuff? I am an avid hunter for all sorts of fossils and rocks (rockhounding is my favorite past time)! I've had the most luck at the Kansas river and Perry lake. Some of my finds include cow skulls, cone coral, shells, agates, vertebrae, and a bunch of druzy quartz geodes and chalcedony. I ha

    Bird or Turtle Toe?

    Hello, Just wanted to hear your thoughts on this element. Collected from the upper Smoky Hill Chalk Member of the Niobrara Formation in Logan county, Kansas. Let me know if you need more info or pictures. In my heart I want this to be a hesperornithiform, but I'm also getting the "turtle vibe" from this piece. Let me know what you think!

    Bones and sponges? Help?

    Hello Fossil friends! I have a couple fossils(?) I'm going to see if I can get help identifying. I found all of them in the same local area of a river shore in northeastern Kansas, so I'm assuming Pennsylvanian time frame. I have some fossils that are obvious shells and coral, but these I'm not sure and would like your input! If you need more photos or angles, let me know. #1 I think is a fish vertebrae that's slightly flattened. It's about 1 cm x .3 cm.

    Petrified Wood?

    Ok, this is my first post, and I think I read the rules right, so if I didn't do anything right just let me know and I'll fix it. So I bought this boulder off a guy. It's about 3 ft long, 2 ft wide, and weighs about 200 lb. The guy told me that it probably came from Kansas or Minnesota. He couldn't remember very well. But I am in Lincoln Nebraska so I suspect it's probably Kansas. I asked a guy for information about it here in Lincoln. Specifically I asked him if this was a petrified log and if the big lump on the side was a concretion. He said that "This is a weat
  7. I found some bone fragments up in some ogallala formation in Kansas. I also found this complete tooth I was hoping someone could identify for me.

    Pleistocene leg bone ID

    Hello, I posted this before, but my thread was too disjointed for comfort so I am posting again. I found this bone end (I think it is a tibia) with some other ice age bits and ends and have no idea what it came from. Im pretty sure it is not bovid, from what I am familiar with. Anything could help, and this was found on a riverbed in NE Kansas.
  9. Dear Forum members, A few years ago I bought this piece from a fellow collector. The description mentioned that it is probably a Platecarpus sp. atlas and axis vertebrae, Niobrara Fm. Gove Co. Kansas. I think that this is acutally the supraoccipital, epioccipital, basisphenoid and several other skull parts. I do not know if this is indeed from a Platecarpus species? if so, which species could this be? I'd like to know whether this piece is Coniacian, Santonian or Campanian in age. Perhaps the preservation already can point in a direction. the fossils are all very flatt

    Vertebrae or Concretions?

    Still learning my formations. Found these close to the bottom of the Dakota Sandstone formation in Kansas.

    Skull ID

    Hello, new to the forum and looking for some help with this skull cap I found. It was found on the Kansas River in central Kansas after heavy rains. I included one picture exactly where I found it and a few pictures of it now after it's dried in my garage. It's approximately 3' wide and very heavy. I have an idea what it might be but would like to hear some opinions. Thank you for any assistance.

    Cretaceous shark centrum?

    Hi all, My mom was going through some old things in the basement and found this. She said she found it when she was a kid, so I'm making assumptions it was found in Ellis County, Kansas. I've found several sharks teeth in the area which I believe are primarily Cretoxyrhina and Squalicorax based on location and pictures on this sites like these. My very amateur guess is centrum from one of those two, but am curious as to your thoughts. Thanks

    Wierd tubular fossil

    I found this wierd tubular fossil while rock hunting in central kansas limestone. Any ideas ?
  15. Took me a little while to post this trip report, I'm always a busy person. This trip is from October 3rd, 2020 in Ellsworth County, Kansas at a reservoir. The predominant formation at the site I visited is Kiowa formation; which is known for marsh and delta environments in the early Cretaceous (Albian). I found some interesting things and I'll show below. Possibly some carbonized wood materials. Lignite or coal? It was flaky and would crumble if touched. It left some black powders on my hands after handling it. I found several large pieces of them together and partly encased in con

    Is this bone?

    Hey everyone, This is on another site. They are stuck between claw or talon. Thoughts? Found in the mud in the Walnut River, Kansas.

    Tooth identification

    Found approximately 5" below current soil level in central Kansas. Closest item to tooth was thumb scraper which was about 2" in length. Buffalo? Horse?
  19. I found this listed as a cretaceous lobster from the Kiowa Formation in Kansas. I didn't have much success finding anything similar with some quick research, do any of you guys know what exactly we're looking at here?

    Concretionary?

    From my previous trip to Ellsworth County, Kansas and it's located in Dakota formation, Cenomanian. It appeared as almost like vertebrae but I'm sure it's not verts. Is it by chance some form of ichnofossil? @jpc thinks it's concretionary. No disrespect to him, he's the only one who offered his opinion and I would like to know if anyone else have a different opinion.
  21. Yesterday (Saturday, Aug. 22nd), I went fossil hunting in Ellsworth County, Kansas again for elusive Dakota Sandstone leaves and unfortunately it's mostly a bust, just like the previous trip. Despite that, I enjoyed the scenery and found some odd rocks and few fossils from new sites. A new site produced a few small plates containing woody and plant material fragments. I decided not to keep them. Closer views... Remember that interesting sandstone from the previous trip? I regretted for not taking it home so I took another opportunity

    Squalicorax sp.

    Recently I purchased these two Squalicorax sp. tooths from an auction website and both are currently on the way. I have a few questions about identification since I know very little about shark tooths and also please correct any misidentifications. Seller A sold me this tooth and it was listed as Squalicorax hartwelli. It is collected from Niobrara formation in western Kansas. Is Squalicorax hartwelli considered a variation of Squalicorax falcatus? Do you agree with seller A's identification above? Seller B sold me this tooth and it was li

    C. mantelli tooth damage

    From the album: Sharks

    Closeup of a C. mantelli tooth with unusual wear. I suspect it could be from a tooth in the opposing jaw, or that it may have been bitten in the process of falling out of the mouth during feeding.
