  2. More Permian Waurika Finds

    So, I have some more finds from the Permian matrix. A few coprolites, and some teeth. Scales and bones I may put up in another post. Thanks for looking... Squares are 5mm x 5mm Orthocanthus teeth? Miscellaneous teeth ...
  3. Permian coprolite from Waurika

    Thanks to my friend @Jeffrey P ! He had given me some matrix that he collected at the Lower Permian Waurika Oklahoma site on his epic road trip this summer. I have spent some time breaking down the clay matrix, and going through the remaining bits to look for fossils. I've found a few teeth so far, but this was pretty cool. I was putting some hunks of matrix into different solutions to try to break down the clay, and came across this larger solid bit. Upon cleaning it, I realized it mus be a coprolite. It has many inclusions, Orthocanthus teeth, what appear to be bone bits, and fish scales. @Carl @GeschWhat may be interested in this. Enjoy! Matrix from the Lower Permian Wellington - Garbar Complex Note: each square on the background is 5mm by 5mm Coprolite is 2 cm long.
  4. teeth and something else

    Went fishing at Eufaula dam in Oklahoma the other day. Afterward, I decided to walk the river for a bit and look around. I found a few deer teeth and a piece of something else. Kinda neat looking but I'm not sure what it is. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
  5. Oologah formation

    I was driving between Claremore, OK and Collinsville today and stopped by an old road cut. We have had some heavy rain and thought I’d check. I found this little piece and got excited thinking if may be a rolled up trilobite. If it is it will be the first I have actually found myself.
  6. Any Ideas what part of the creature these bean shaped bones are from ? Is it from the spine (intercentrum)? They are about 2 to 3mm in size. I was hoping to get the specific name of the bones like Atlas vertebrae. If if you know your Permian material I have a thread in the members collections that I have very little knowledge of and would love some help. Thank for looking . Cheers Bobby
  7. Huntoniatonia Prep

    It thought I’d put up a few pics of @Jeffrey P‘s Huntoniatonia not featured in his awesome field trip report. He left it with me (along with a challenging crinoid slab) when we met up last month. Here’s what it looked like upon receipt. Here’s where it currently stands after only 1 hour of scribe work. It probably has 90 minutes worth of work left on it.
  8. A few new Cretaceous fossils in my collection

    Hey everyone Last week I went to a small mineral/fossil market/exhibition near Lille (northern France). The thing lasted the whole weekend (29th and 30th September) - I managed to get to it just a few hours before it closed. There wasn't much diversity in terms of fossils, but I did spot some rather neat stuff - including some cool vertebrate specimens Cephalic 'armour' of a small placoderm (don't really remember from where, tho... ) Well-preserved eurypterid from the Silurian of Ukraine Little array of dinosaur teeth from the Cretaceous of USA (I think the seller mentioned that they were from the Hell Creek Fm.) More dinosaur (and 1 pterosaur, bottom-left corner) teeth; including 2 Bothriospondylus teeth from Madagascar.. I'd have loved to buy them Well-preserved Keichousaurus from the Triassic of Guizhou province (China). I didn't only 'gawk' at the fossils, I also bought a few little things : 2 small ?Lepisosteus fish teeth from the Cenomanian (Cretaceous) of Cap Blanc Nez (coast of northern France) I'm rather pleased I bought this one... Associated cranial remains of a small frog (?Ranidae) from the Maastrichtian (Late Cretaceous) of the Hell Creek Formation (Montana, USA). Seller told me that stuff is fairly uncommon.. Well, that's it Hope you enjoyed this -Christian EDIT: The last item (thanks for pointing this out, @jdp!) is actually a Doleserpeton skull from the Permian of Oklahoma... not a Hell Creek Fm. frog skull -Apologies for any confusion
  9. Hey y'all! I've been wanting to go hunting for dinosaur material for a long time now - problem is I'm in eastern Texas (I also can't travel too far). Most of the stuff around here is marine. I've been doing some research, and I've found the Antlers Formation in southern Oklahoma which has deinonychus and tenontosaurus, among others. Where would be the best place to actually go hunt? Do I need to go on private property, by the side of a river, or what? It'd be great if anyone has gone hunting in that formation, I'd love to hear your tips! My primary goal would be to find deinonychus teeth. The first deinonychus in the antlers formation was found on the grounds of the Howard McLeod Correctional Center in the late 90's. I'd think around that area would be a good place to start. This is the bulletin (from the Oklahoma geological survey) I found that reports the finding of deinonychus antirrhopus in the antlers formation: http://www.ogs.ou.edu/pubsscanned/BULLETINS/Bulletin146.pdf Address of Howard McLeod Correctional Center: 19603 E. Whippoorwill Lane, Atoka, OK 74525 Any other general fossil hunting tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  10. Hi Everyone, this is my first post and I like to thank you for your information. I will be traveling to the US in October. I'm going to travel in my car from Los Angeles, las vegas, Flagstaff, Albuquerque, Amarillo, Oklahoma, Memphis, New Orleans, Panama City, Sarasota, and Orlando. I want to take advantage of that to do little fossil huntings across that sites. Obviously, I don't want to do something illegal or wrong while collecting. I was talking with some guy from natural science and tell me which is legal and which not. The original idea is to fossil collect near the road. Do you know where to find good fossils like ammonites, corals, shells, echinoderms, etc near roads? This will be my route. I'm not professional or the next Alan Grant or Charig. I only want one specimen or two from every place if possible. Thanks to everyone, sorry for my English. If you tell me where to stop near the road or taking a detour for a mile will be alright. I have already some point marked but you're the bosses, boys and Girls!!!
  11. Fossilized material from Oklahoma

    Recently I got a fossil and it was originated from Oklahoma. I'll like to know from your experience, what do you think this is? Thank you.
  12. These were all found in northwest Oklahoma, near the Kansas state line.
  13. Hi ho everyone, in fairly new to this forum and was wondering if anyone knows some fossil hunting locations in southeast Oklahoma. I live near the Claremore area and am looking for anywhere good streams, quarries eager to start my dino digging.
  14. Mystery fossil needs an ID

    These two fossils were collected 2 years ago in the bromide formation in the Arbuckle mountains of Oklahoma. Does anyone know what they are?
  15. I found this rock about 20 years ago while hiking a piece of property I was considering buying, which was perched on a high bluff over looking the Illinois River. I picked it up because of the beautiful druzy crystals on it. I have been cleaning quartz crystals this week, which I found a few weeks ago near Hot Springs, AR. I was using Iron out to remove the iron stains. Anyway, I have kept this rock in my kitchen window so it could catch the sunlight and sparkle for me all these years. It is not the finest home decor, but definitely my style. I picked it up today to see if it had any iron stains on it that might need to be removed. As I was looking at it something in the chert caught my eye! I’ve had this rock all these years, but never realized, to my great delight (squeal!!!), there were fossils in it until today. That just makes it all the more special and cool. The formation there is Keokuk and Reed, which is Mississippian. I think these may be Bryozoa, but I’m not certain. I’m not sure I’ve ever hunted a Mississippian formation and found much besides crinoid pieces. Note the little rice grain size/shape dark spots on the top right side. I saw them and began to wonder if they were fossils. I turned the rock around to look at all sides and saw these rice grain size and shapes that were clustered together. See top center just below the crystal. These look flat, but in the next pic they have more dimension. Rice grain size and shape center of pic. The bottom of the rock. Note bottom center it almost looks like a plant leaf of sorts, but I assume Bryozoa. I have not found many fossils in the area. I found a couple crinoid fragments on the nearby land that I ended up buying instead. So, I’m pretty sure these are marine fossils. A few miles away to the east in Arkansas, in the Boone Formation, I found 3 Spirifers and abundant crinoid stalk fragments. Can anyone confirm that these are Bryozoa and if so what type they may be? Thank you in advance for your comments and input. Kim
  16. are these anything special?

    hi everyone, i’m new here and am needing help identifying some recent finds of mine. any tips or comments are greatly appreciated, thank you!
  17. Good fossil locations NE Oklahoma

    Hello everyone, I'm new to this community and to Oklahoma. My lady and myself are trying to find good fossil sites here in the NE Oklahoma region. We are primarily looking around the Pryor area, which is East of Tulsa about 30. However, we are willing to drive to find some good spots. We hear of the Arkansas river and the potential it has, and have tried it once south of Wagoner but didn't find much. If there is anywhere in this area please let us know because after moving from MN a month ago we are dying to find some good spots from Grand River to Tulsa areas. Thanks!!!
  18. Dicranurus elegantus prep

    I recently picked up this partial Dicranurus elegantus from the Haragan formation, Oklahoma. It was a fun prep! initially it laid flat at a funny angle (don't have a full photo), so I cut a base so it would stand on its own rather than lay flat, and removed a lot of matrix from the new top. I worked it down with my Aro, and used a abrasive unit when I thought I was getting close to the spines. Once I figured out the spine position I started with the Aro again, going slow and following the spines, switching back to the abrasive if I wasn't 100% sure where the spine was. Overall very happy with the results, not bad for a partial bug! Here is the before and after.
  19. Cepholopod? Fossil ID

    I traveled up to OK to do some hunting last week. I stopped near a town called Gene Autry, OK near the Washita River. I found this at the site I was hunting. Sorry the top isn’t in focus. I was trying to get the shape of the sections on it. It looks like a cross between an orthoceras and a baculite, but I am pretty sure the site was Pennsylvanian despite the geological map saying it is Holocene. I also found what I believe was part of a crinoid stem, which turned to dust when I tried to pick it up. I got a pic first though. I’m learning my lesson. I cant see any septa on this, so I do t know what it is. I’m sure this is an easy one, I’ve just never seen one. Any Help would be appreciated.
  20. Kainops invius Trilobite.jpg

    From the album MY FOSSIL Collection - Dpaul7

    Kainops invius Trilobite Bois d’Arc Formation, Oklahoma Lower Devonian (359-383 Million Years Ago) Kainops is a genus of trilobites from the family Phacopidae, order Phacopida. It can be distinguished from Paciphacops by the greater number of facets to the eye (6–8 per row, compared to 3–4 in Paciphacops). The form of the furrow between the palpebral area and the palpebral lobe also distinguishes Kainops from the genera Paciphacops and Viaphacops. Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Arthropoda Class: †Trilobita Order: †Phacopida Family: †Phacopidae Genus: †Kainops Species: †invius
  21. Ammonite help?

    I found these in a river in SE, Ok. I was hoping someone could give me some info on them. What are the small ones? I was thinking gastropod. There are a few truckloads of those where I found the big ones. Also do big ones like these have any value? I seen big polished ones going for quite a bit, are these polishable? Why do some have defined ridges and arent spiral. I don't know much about them I just spent about 30 mins in a river to find those. Any help would be appreciated!
  22. Hey everyone! I came here for some help identifying this fossil I found as a child. I was with my aunt when I found it, so it was either in Oklahoma, Missouri, or possibly Texas. I’m sorry it’s such a big expanse of land, but I was so young! I’ve been wondering what it was for almost as long as I remember, but my mother took it from me and hoarded it with all of my other cool fossil finds! Lol. Any help identifying it would be appreciated! I’ve included the best images I can take with my phone, and I’ve also included some other finds as a size reference.
  23. Hello, new member here with something I found today. I will start with all the information I can for the find. Object was found in Miami, Oklahoma. It was found in an alley while I was at work. This area is known for lead mining and the area of the alley where I found it looked to be old mine tailings that were used in place of limestone rock. It has a length of about 3 inches or so, I didn't get to actually measure it. And about as big around as a nickel.
  24. Oklahoma trilobite experts needed

    I had some rock left over from a trip to Oklahoma a few years ago and finally decided to take a hammer to it to see if I could find anything and, well, I found this guy. Pretty sure it's a trilobite, just wondering about the species. Looks to my untrained eye to be a phacopid. Not sure about which one, or even the orientation inside the rock. Haragan formation. Any ideas?
