  1. Hey Everyone, Has anyone found a Eutrephoceras dekayi from NSR? If so, was it only 2mm or smaller in size? I really want one but man my eyes will have a hard time finding it. Planko
  2. Jaw Piece Identification

    Hello all. Going through my pickings from a couple weeks ago. Might be tough but wondering if anyone knows what species this might of come from. Roughly 1.5 in by 2 inch.
  3. My wife and I went on a 7500+ mile ramble to break out of our COVID doldrums. Due to the virus we had to change up many of our original plans... which conversely added a number of additional fossil hunting locals as they allowed us to mostly avoid our fellow humans and maintain social distancing by many many miles. As part of our trip preparations my wife sewed us a number of masks, including a whole series of fossil hunting masks for me. Originally we were supposed to stay in Chicago, but we elected to avoid staying in the city, so we only got to do a drive by We started the trip with a bonus dig, meeting up with fellow forum member @minnbuckeye for a guided Ordovician hunt in Fennimore, Wisconsin (THANKS MIKE!) Unfortunately I neglected to take pics of the site so I will only be able to share a farm pic we passed on the way. Mike was a gracious host who kicked off the visit with a gift of several fossil samples from his home turf As with all of the fossils from this trip, all finds are as they arrived back home, no prep. Some of our finds from Fennimore:
  4. Hi all My kids and I found this tooth in one of the feeder creeks of the NSR in May. Someone said that it could be a worn Protosphyraena tooth. The leading edge is sharp; whereas, the trailing edge is round. It's also mostly compressed and broad-based. Any information or thoughts is much appreciated! Thanks!
  5. Plesiosaurus Vert...Maybe

    Hi All. I found this recently at NSR. I do believe it is a Plesiosaurus vertebrae. Looking around to make sure before I label and I have confused myself. Looked at too many websites. So, is it a Plesiosaurus Vert? Thanks in advance for your help?

  14. Gastropod / Unknown Bone

    Below is gastropod and was wondering a couple of things. Found NSR up from the Ladonia Park. What species to label it. Second though is it is heavy for its size. I know weight doesn't matter a lot but it is unusual. It is a different matrix from the normal NSR black or red gastropod steinkerns normally found there. Ok, the really unusual part it smells like metal. Like when you hold coins in your hand and they have the metallic smell. This has that smell and your hand smells just like it after holding. Maybe thinking to much into this but just is different. Bone fragment same location. Might be to worn to label.
  15. Me Again..NSR Finds 6-26-2020

    Ok, I stink at teeth identification. Here are a couple that I think are mosasaur. I found two of the below...any idea?
  16. NSR Unknown 6-2020

    Hey all, it's been awhile since I have need of some help but I am in need. Couple I know but before i Label the floating display (Thanks Troodon in a prior topic) I want to make sure. Couple I am scratching my head. Anywho....all found NSR this month. Here we go...
  17. NSR Quartz - Pyrite

    Hey all. Couple questions. I think I found a pyrite area last time I was out. Couple weeks ago. Has anyone ever found any fossil with pyrite like the ones from England? I also found a large quartz crystal. Is there a quartz vein some where near on on that river? I have found lots of calcite but not quartz.
  18. Took a trip to eastern part of North Sulfur River near Cooper this afternoon. Water levels pretty low. About foot deep in most places. After walking down the bridge, I immediately noticed huge amounts of Exogyra oysters exposed everywhere. I usually find smaller ones in the past, but this time there were some huge ones that measures 6 inches across and weights 5 pounds lying on the surface. I only grabbed the ones that were less worn for my collection. There are still large amount everywhere.
  19. fossil ID for possible NSR bone

    Last month I went took my first trip to the North Sulphur River and while sifting through some gravel I found this. It is 16 mm long and 7 mm wide and resembles a bone to me, but I am no expert. Does anyone know what it is?
  20. Hi Friends, A few months ago I spent a few days’ time on the North Sulfur River and I’ve added some potential coprolites to my collection and wanted to share what I’ve found so that maybe it will help someone be able to identify similar finds there. I picked up anything that I thought looked fossilized and after a few trips I had quite a bit to go through and attempt to identify. Subsequent trips I picked up less and less because I knew what to look for. #1, 2, and 3 are all from the North Sulfur River – Ozan formation. #1 was found in the redzone, while #2 and #3 were found loose in the river bed. I'll start with #1 then add the other two in subsequent posts. #1: Top view #1: Bottom view: This one seemed highly likely to me and has white matrix around lots of black fossilized material contained in the redzone matrix. I happened to tap it after removing it from the surrounding matrix as it seemed like a concretion and found a small tooth inside (orange arrow). I decided to prep it out and find out what else I could discover within. After a few hours picking away through the 'poop' like matrix I had found a vertebra and parts of a shell as well as a considerable amount of unidentifiable fossilized matter. I think I was right about this one. #1: Identifiable finds. Left to right: Tooth, most likely fish., Vertebra, two gastropod shell fragments. Scale marks in mm. #2: Seems likely to me, but not sure. It could just be the remains of a fish or something and not necessarily a coprolite. Top view: Bottom View: More to follow...
