  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. https://bioone.org/journals/Transactions-of-the-Kansas-Academy-of-Science/volume-122/issue-1-2/062.122.0101/First-Associated-Tooth-Set-of-iPtychodus-anonymus-i-Elasmobranchii/10.1660/062.122.0101.short Tooth set I donated to the Sternberg museum has been published.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Kansas Fossil - Saline River

    Found these around Saline River in Kansas. Black with striations and crystals. Found in or near limestone.
  8. 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.
  9. 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?)
  10. 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)
  11. 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)
  12. 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?
  13. 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.
  14. I just finished a new display of self collected Kansas predators. I was inspired my fellow member Terrance Skinners similar display. I love it.
  15. 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.
  16. Kansas Bivalve

    I recently found these 2 brachiopods in the Pennsylvanian of eastern Kansas, I don’t really know my brachiopods. So could someone tell me what kinds are these? Thanks!
  17. Crinoid Concretion?

    Is this a concretion that formed around a crinoid? Or something else? It's approx. 3in.x3in. The bottom half is smooth and the top half is rough. Holes at both ends. Found Riley Co, KS - Flint hills
  18. Unidentified Fossil Embedded in Rock

    Cant figure out what's embedded in this rock. Anybody know? The 3rd Pic is of a different rock found in the same area with a similar pattern on it. Found in Riley Co, KS - Flint hills
  19. What is it?

    I have no idea what this is/was? Just a cool rock?
  20. What kind of bone?

    Found this bone on the Kansas River on a sand/mud bar near Manhattan, KS. Not sure what it is. Any ideas?
  21. Bryozoan for further ID

    I've been trying to narrow down the ID for bryozoans I've been finding. I'm not sure if they're weathering out of the Bennett shale or from further up. I have collected about 15 of these over the years and found a nice one several days ago. They are characterized by rounded form with flattish uneven bases. Spacing between monticules is about 1 cm regardless of specimen size. The below example is about 8 cm wide at base and 5 cm tall. I can't find it right now so can only show photos. I'll put a link below to my more recent find. All help appreciated!
  22. Kansas Fossil Collection

    Hey guys I had this collection of fossils and I wanted to show them to you guys. This collection has a few I have questions so about so please let me know about them. Heres the slideshow of the best ones. https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1c9audycmGOHZENQjRdXumQot-0HE2oMJBl39AZoU5qM/edit?usp=sharing The most interesting one is this brachiopod, can someone tell me what is going on with it? Thanks!
  23. Fossil Hunting Locations

    Hey all! Im kind of new to fossil hunting, but in the 4 months I've been obsessed with it and have amassed a fair collection of local byrozoans, brachiopods, bivalves, and crinoids. But recently Ive been kind of short of fossil rich places and was wondering if you guys could give me some great locations within like 20ish minutes of Overland Park. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  24. Mosasaur Scales Exposed Under UV Light

    I'm working on a really excellent mosasaur skull right now! I also read a 2014 publication by Johan Lindgren , Michael Caldwell, Takuya Konishi , and Luis Chiappe. In Convergent Evolution in Aquatic Tetrapods: Insights from an Exceptional Fossil Mosasaur they reveal some of the amazing details preserved on the famous Bonner Platecarpus specimen at LACM (LACM 128319) seen here: Like the LACM specimen, my new skull seems to have the same sort of differential phosphatization / preservation (?) of the scale pattern. Here is a figure from the article: Here are a few pictures of the parietal on the skull I am working on now: I promise I will share more pictures as the prep of this specimen continues! Until then, Merry Christmas! -KS
