  1. Honeycomb bone structure?

    I thought this type of honeycomb structure was usually indicative of skull bone but this piece looks like it may be some sort of joint?
  2. Strange little jaw bone ?

    I think this is a lower jaw bone but the more I look at it, I’m not sure. Have never found anything similar. It looks like it would’ve had 8 teeth. @Harry Pristis
  3. Large mammal bone Miocene

    I haven’t had much luck getting these larger bones identified in the past but this one is a little more complete so I am hoping for at least an ID on what part of the body this came from. Found in North Central Nebraska@Harry Pristis
  4. I donated thousands of specimens that I collected from anthills on my sons’ M&M Ranch (mostly Oligocene but there are a few Eocene small areas) in Nebraska to the Smithsonian and to the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology Museum of Geology. There are currently six researchers studying the specimens with multiple papers in progress. Covid-19 slowed the progress down significantly but it looks like a few of the papers are now starting to move forward. Below is a link to one of my TFF posts that shows a few of the micro specimens that I collected and donated: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/66138-oligocene-micros-from-the-mm-ranch-in-nebraska/&tab=comments#comment-692680 Below is a link to a TFF post that shows macro specimens that are also found on the M&M ranch. The specimens shown in this post were not part of my donations. http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/94904-mm-ranch-in-nebraska/& The first paper that will get published (in writing right now) describes mammals (insectivores) from the M&M Ranch. Below is a preliminary illustration of what families/genera/species were found on the ranch. I was really happy that there was a new species of Oligoryctes and a new genus of Soricidae (shrews). However, the specimens provided further scientific value as summarized in the below e-mail statements by the insectivore researcher: “The effort was definitely worth it. Even for some of the already known species, the specimens in this collection preserve parts of the animal not seen in previously described specimens and there are also quite a few range extensions (both in terms of age and geography). And this is just the “insectivores,” I am sure the other portions of the fauna will also be informative and provide many new discoveries” The numbers in parentheses represent the number of specimens. You can see that for some of the species there were a very large number of specimens like H. fugax where there were 501 specimens. When the paper is published I’ll add a link to this post. Other papers that will eventually be published will describe Squamates (snakes, lizards and legless lizards), Amphibians (frogs and salamanders), Mammals (rodents) and eggshells from the M&M Ranch.

  5. Two small toe bones

    Look like they might be from the same critter but I don’t know which one. Thanks
  6. Pseudhipparion tooth?

    Hoping for Pseudhipparion Simpsoni but probably just wishful thinking on my part. @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker
  7. Mastodon ivory?

    I was told by someone familiar with the location where this was found that this is mastodon ivory. They said that it turns this blue and cream color in this area. Just wondering what the experts think. Thanks
  8. Need ID help on 2 similar teeth

    I thought the one on the right looked like some Merychippus I saw but have no idea on the other one. Nebraska Miocene.
  9. Can’t find a match for this mammal tooth

    This tooth looks a little different than the rest of my cow/bison teeth. I can’t seem to find anything with that slight fan shape and double stylid.
  10. After getting many of my teeth ID’d by Harry, shellseeker and others I decided it was time to step up my game a little bit and start learning how to do this myself. I have been finding a lot of new teeth lately and plan on continuing to find them. I’ve been doing tons of research and built up a pretty decent database of horse teeth descriptions and information. So here’s my first try let me know what you think! @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @fossillarry I’m going to go with Nannippus Fricki. Upper left M1 or M2
  11. Large heavy limb bone Need ID help

    I just love the color on this one, like a work of art to me. Like the last bone I posted, I don’t really expect to get an exact ID but was hoping to learn which bone this was. It is more than likely mastodon or mammoth. Titanotheres were quite a bit further west from the area I hunt. This bone has not been cleaned or preserved in any way , this is how it looked when I came out of the ground. If nothing else it will make a great display piece!
  12. Chunk of bone from a very large mammal.

    Found in north central Nebraska. Miocene. Probably not enough there to get an exact ID but I thought I’d give it a shot.
  13. Small teeth and jaw section

    This was found in north Central Nebraska, Niobrara River. Miocene @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @jpc
  14. One for the turtle folks

    Just curious what part of the critter this comes from. Not sure who the turtle experts are on here so I thought I would tag and obvious one. @turtlesteve Found in North Central Nebraska
  15. Mammal tooth ID please

    Another new one for me. Found in cherry county Nebraska.
  16. Ear bone ID help

    After a lot of research and luck, I discovered that one of my finds a couple of weeks ago is an ear bone. Found in Nebraska but still not sure which critter it came from. I am tagging @Shellseeker and @Harry Pristis because I know that they were involved in some past ear bone discussions. The second photo is one that I found on the web from a site selling an ear bone that they claimed was from a woolly mammoth. Thanks
  17. I am posting theses images pulled down off a Facebook fossil ID site because this has me STUMPED. It s a partial skull found in a Nebraska river. But of what?! Eyes and ears are high up and way back on the skull. I'll try to add more pics. Sorry stills from video are blurry. You can see what I believe is the ear canal close to the eye socket in the last photo.
  18. Finally getting around to working on a jigsaw puzzle I found in the White River Fm of Nebraska a couple of years ago. Pretty sure it’s a soft shelled turtle, but I’m not having luck finding anything like it online. The shell is eggshell thin and seems like it was leathery in life. There are a few bones included. Suggestions?
  19. Trying to confirm id of two jaw fragments. From an old family collection. Label: Oligocene - White River, Nebraska, Sioux County, USA Both noted as Poebrotherium (tiny extinct camel) First three photos are the first fragment. Based on the large canine tooth and size of the other teeth, I'm thinking it might actually be an oreodont? Last four are the second fragment. Smaller teeth and wider jaw. Maybe labeled correctly as poebrotherium?
  20. Trevor's White River Prep

    Turtle collected by My Friend Zolt. At the white River Badlands at the M&M Ranch Nebraska. This Turtle is missing the Front part and was associated with a Flattend Oreodont Skull. About a foot apart.
  21. Planning another summer ramble across a wide swath of the US for siteseeing and fossil hunting. Going to hit some previous sites like Kemmerer and Big Cedar Ridge in Wyoming along with planned stops for a guided dino excursion at a private ranch in eastern Montana and a trilobite dig at Theisen quarry in Oklahoma. I will be zigzagging across much of Montana and Wyoming and would be interested in other suggested stops on the way if anyone has anything they are willing to share. Not looking for someones secret stash, just publicly known places the wife and I might be able to stop for an hour or two as we roll through. We will also be traveling through places like western Nebraska, Oklahoma, southern Alabama, etc. I am interested in any era, invertebrate, vertebrate, plant. Looking to expand my personal collection and maybe pick up a few pieces to trade or auction off here. I have the most flexibility while in the north, but I have been trying to see if I can detour to squeeze in at least a little Alabama carboniferous as I have seen many beautiful specimens posted and I love plant fossils. We shall see. I have the rockhounding guides for the northern states and have tagged several possibilities, I have also been combing through previous posts and searching other references online. I would love to identify an ammonite location along the way as I have never managed to collect one myself. Thanks in advance, Randy
  22. 11-02-19 lake macconaughy bone

    Hi I found this on the beach at lake mcconaughy in Nebraska which means it could be Pleistocene or Miocene but most likely from the Ash Hollow formation. I’m pretty clueless when it comes to bones and could use some help figuring out what this is. Thanks! P.s. I did the flame test and it’s fully mineralized.
  23. Below are some more of my macro fossils that I’ve recently put in 8”X12” Riker mount displays. To see a previous post with Riker mount displays with specimens from the Aquia Formation of Maryland and the Nanjemoy Formation of Virginia check out the below link: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/101415-a-few-riker-mounts-with-specimens-from-the-aquia-formation-of-maryland-and-the-nanjemoy-formation-of-virginia/ Considering I’ve only made three trips to the Ernst Ranch in Bakersfield California, I’m pretty happy with the macro specimens that I’ve found in those trips. The below display contains some of my nicer macro specimens from the Miocene Round Mountain Silt Formation. The top of the display has a cetacean flipper bone, cetacean vertebra, a bird bone, and a leatherback turtle carapace bone. Then there is a row of Isurus planus shark teeth. Then a group of Carcharodon hastalis teeth (for size reference the largest tooth is 3.13”) with an Otodus megalodon to the right. The bottom of the display has two upper Hexanchus teeth and both cetacean and sea lion/seal teeth. Below is a picture of a display with macro specimens from my sons’ M&M Ranch in Sioux County Nebraska. These macro specimens came from the Eocene Chadron Formation (maybe but not likely) and the Oligocene Brule Formation (Most likely as the vast amount of the ranch flats areas where they were collected is almost all Oligocene). The top has a row of coprolites. I only have a few coprolites left as I have donated several hundred to the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. The next row has a few pieces of turtle/tortoise shell. Then there is a mammal tooth and rows of small mammal partial jaws. The bottom of the display contains mammal bones. Some of these specimens were given to me by my older son, Marco Jr., because I don’t do a lot of surface collecting at the ranch. I spend the vast majority of my time at the ranch searching for anthills and collecting anthill matrix which contains micro vertebrate specimens which are my main interest. Below is a picture of a display with Carcharodon hastalis shark teeth from the Miocene of Virginia. The top of the display contains teeth from the upper jaw and the bottom of the display from the lower jaw. For size reference the largest teeth are 2 5/8”. I have collected several thousand Carcharodon hastalis teeth from Virginia but this will probably be my only Riker mount display of them. I used all six of the Riker mount displays that I just recently bought so I won’t be able to post anything more until I get my next batch of them delivered. Marco Sr.
  24. Buffalo femur?

    Has this bone been around long enough to be a fossil? Found Nemaha River valley. Who's hand was this in so long ago?
  25. Dinosaur bone?

    I've got another "unidentified" Dinosaur bone I am requesting identification help with. I was a gift from a friend in California who knew nothing about it except it came from Nebraska. Do anyone know what it is? Thanks in advance.
