  1. 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?
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. Teeth from same species?

    Can anyone tell me if these teeth are from the same species? Or what species they are? They came from clump matrixes from Nebraska and South Dakota.
  10. Cynodontia tooth?

    Can anyone help identify these fossil tooth? Was in a section of matrix from Nebraska or Badlands of South Dakota.
  11. Nebraska Fossils

    I found 2 fossils that look to be part of a jaw. What did I find?
  12. I found this tortoise on my sons’ M&M Ranch in Nebraska. It is a Stylemys nebrascensis tortoise from the Oligocene Brule Formation. It is a monster, 26"x20"x9" around 120 pounds in weight. It has minimal restoration. I actually found this tortoise in May 2016. You can check out the below TFF post to see it being dug out. http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/65393-oligocene-tortoise-from-the-mm-ranch-in-crawford-nebraska/& Because of the size, our normal prepper wouldn’t originally prep this tortoise. So my sons brought it back to Virginia and my older son did the gross prep by removing most of the matrix leaving only what was sticking to the shell. He reduced a lot of the original jacketed weight. My older son then convinced our normal prepper to do the fine prep. My sons drove the tortoise back out to South Dakota where our prepper finished it. My older son will bring it back to Virginia next Spring, four years after I originally found it. Here are some pictures. The back legs are really cool and usually don’t survive. The only thing that I’m a little disappointed about is the color. There were two exploded black tortoises very close to this one so I was hoping for the rare black color. The tan/brown color is nicer than the more common white color but it isn’t as nice as the black color. Marco Sr.
  13. Heavy fossilized mammal bone ID help

    Nebraska, Miocene. Very heavy hard as stone.
  14. Mammal bone need ID Nebraska

    Found in North Central Nebraska. Miocene. Not even sure what part of the body this would be from. Thanks
  15. Can anyone ID this for me?

    It is very heavy. I bought it at a rummage sale in Alliance, NE. Don’t know where it was found. Owner deceased. Nebraska, Panhandle, mystery
  16. Niobrara River Fossils Help??

    So my son and I were walking in the Niobrara river west of Verdigre, Nebraska and found some fossils. These were the best 2 that we have. Also found a lot of bone fragments. Any help in identifying these would be great. I have no idea. Thanks in advance. Tom
  17. need bone ID please

    This is the smallest fossil bone I’ve ever found. I won’t even take a guess on this one. Found in north central Nebraska sandhills.
  18. Tortoise?

    I always assumed these were pieces of giant tortoise shell , but have never showed them to anyone. What do you think? Found in north central Nebraska.
  19. Need bone ID please

    Really not sure on this one. Sort of looks like a vert or end of a bone. Hopefully there is enough there for an ID. Found in North Central Nebraska. Thanks! bottom
  20. Some of my collection

    Hello gang, As promised this is where I will share specimens from my personal collection, my grandfather's collection, and the collection that was donated to the university I work for. The latter is interesting as it is literally boxes of rock and fossils, with no information and my university does not have a geology or paleontology department. I'll be updating it every so often. Enjoy! NOTE: Some of the donated items have old school "labels" on them. If you see initials or such that you recognize, please PM me, as I am doing my best to properly catalog them properly as part of my job!
  21. Hi all, trying to get some id help with some teeth from the Brule Formation, Nebraska. Most i think are oreodont, mesohippus and similar. Unfortunately dentition is not my forte, so any assistance would be appreciated. Tried to take photos from three different angles to help. Set 1, 2-specimens Set 2, 3-specimens (lower 2 mesohippus maybe) Set 3, 2-specimens Set 4, 1-specimen Set 5, 1-specimen (mesohippus maybe?) Thanks for everyone's help again. MUCH appreciated, Paul
  22. Need toe bone ID very good condition

    Found in north central Nebraska. Thanks
  23. vertebra

    I’ve always wondered what kind of critter this vertebra was from. I’m assuming bison. I thought it was interesting because of what look like cut marks on the top of the spine. Do you think this is evidence of butchering? Thanks for any input
  24. More teeth

    Since I have been having such good luck with tooth ID I thought I would dig in to some of my old collection. I got out my old bucket o teeth and found some that look like they were something other than bison or cow. I’ve put these in order from top to bottom. The first one is broken so I don’t know if there is enough there to ID. That one kind of looks like bison anyway. I have no idea on the last three. Found in Nebraska. Thanks for your help!
