  1. Crinoid#2 ID help

    This is crinoid #2 of 3. The information I have is as follows. Topeka Shale, Moline, Kansas, Pennsylvanian. Your help is greatly apricated. I have been wondering about this one for 11 years. I did prep/detail this crinoid.

  4. Pennsylvanian Starfish from Kansas

    I recently bought this from a live auction and thought that it was cool and the price was right. It was listed as a starfish from Kansas. I did some checking and only found one site that mentioned starfish from Kansas and it stated that they were Pennsylvanian in age and I could not find any other info. I was wondering if anyone has any further info on this piece and I was also wondering if these were formed by the starfish resting? Again any info would be appreciated.
  5. Bear jaw?

    Found these jaws today in a creek in Kansas. Found around bison and elk parts. I'm guessing and hoping bear, but could be more recent. What do the mammal experts on here think?
  6. Skull id

    Found this skull on the Arkansas river in Wichita. Anyone have an idea on if this is domestic dog or wolf? We can and do find skulls and bones going back to the ice age on the river so want to finally know what I have
  7. Found 8" below the sod in a bank that was cut down for stagecoach crossing by the surveyors of the Butterfield Trail in 1865. Just the end was exposed. This is in an area known to be an annual Cheyenne summer hunting camp in Southern Gove County, Kansas. Piece is very heavy, not like a dry or even a fresh bovine metacarpal. Thank you for your help.
  8. East Ks Geodes

    Hey all, I’ve found a number of these pretty geodized shells with incredible smoky and clear quartz crystals in the Kansas City area. Have you guys ever found anything like these?
  9. a few Ptychodus teeth to ID

    I have a few Ptychodus teeth that have no definitive ID and I’d like to change that. I’ve been researching them. I used the great Ptychodus guide on TFF, the Oceans of Kansas website and Shawn Hamms paper. I was able to comfortably ID 2 of the unknowns. Even with all the great information available, I am still not sure on a few. First one is from the Greenhorn Limestone in Kansas. This one has me stumped. I thought it was a good match for P. polygrus but I found nothing indicating that it was present in the Greenhorn. It has been found in Kansas but I only found references for it in other formations. A small tooth, at right around 1cm wide.

  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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.

  23. 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
  24. 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.
