  1. Hi! I was recently given a partial oreodont skull to prep & restore. The reconstruction went well, there was a very little excess rock to clean away & the pieces that I do have went together smoothly. BUT after it was assembled, certain areas of the skull began turning green. The skull fragments had been stored in a temperature & humidity controlled environment for a number of years before i began working on it. I'm wondering if a change in environments or being handled for the first time in a long time might have something to do with it? Has anyone experienced anything like this before? Much appreciated!!
  2. Oreodont under UV

    For your viewing pleasure. Discovered by accident while disinfection testing in my lab: Guess I’ll start taking my UV flashlight into the field with me even in non-scorpion areas!
  3. Oreodont, but which species?

    I picked this up recently from an internet auction house. The seller had no idea about it, since he knew absolutely nothing about fossils. I was hoping that someone might be able to guide me to at least the genus, when not the species and maybe also an idea about where it may have been found. The jaw partial is 5cm.long.
  4. A few bits from South Dakota

    Here are a few bits from a trip to the Orella member a while back. Now part of the collection at my Uni. I suspect Stylemys nebrascensis oreodont-left dentition p4-m2
  5. I've been meaning to make this post for a while, finally getting around to it. Back in July I made a trip to John Day for my first ever fossil hunt. Before I get to our finds, of course when in the area you have to spend some time enjoying the scenery of the gorgeous painted hills also on the list was the visitor center, unfortunately I didn't get many pictures there but here are a few highlights: Continued...
  6. Oreodont id

    I’m thinking about adding this little guy to the vert fossil of the month(even though it probably won’t win this month with the competition). I would like to get a positive id and as much info as possible. I’m still learning my way around the white river formation. So far I freakin love it! Anyway, here’s my little guy-I still have more to put together, but the pieces are a little small and complicated.
  7. Unprepared Oreodont skull?

  8. I haven’t been getting out and about much now a days. The heat and Covid has been keeping me indoors for the most part. The weather is slowly changing to fall and I decided to hit up my white river spot. It’s been a couple months since I’ve been, but boy, the spot just keeps on giving. Right out the gate, I was harassed by a rattlesnake...apparently they do exist. After giving that little bugger plenty of breathing room, I began a several hour hike around my super secret, private property, land owner permission having spot! it wasn’t long before I found a large ancient alluvial deposit. Bones were strewn about, and here I found numerous oreodont jaw pieces of varying sizes. After scooping up all the low hanging fruit, I made my way up the hills that would have deposited said fruit. Here I found a tortoise that I left there in situ because those things are impossible to put back together. After dismissing the idea of another jigsaw puzzle turtle, I crossed a valley and made my way back to a spot that had produced some nice large bones in recent hunts. It wasn’t long before the find of the day caught my eye. An oreodont upper jaw(in pieces but good condition and all there) laying upon the scry. As I carefully dusted away the bits of sand and collected the jaw, I noticed that the whole lower jaw was buried just beneath it! Two for the price of one! And the lower jaw was fairly solid only being broken in half! Lucky me! I did also find three large bones that will have to be reassembled-but they aren’t as cool as my jaw. Sorry the pics are out of order, but you guys get the idea. Sorry if this reads like a 2 year old wrote it, I’m exhausted and it’s late. Happy Hunting y’all!
  9. While I was prepping my first oreodont (his name is Charles ) I noticed something, there seems to be some puncture like fractures. There is a killer out there? My poor Charles has been killed? What do you think based on your experience?
  10. Hi there, guys. So, I got these from an internet auction. It's the first time I put my hands on this kind of piece. It doesn't "feel" fake or nothing, but I just want to be sure, so I thought I'd better get an expert opinion. What do you think? It's supposed to be Merycoidodon culbertsoni, from the Oligocene of South Dakota Badlands.
  11. Hello everyone, first of all I want to say how I love this forum and how many great people are here, I couldn't find a better community. Back on topic I'm pretty much a novice when it comes to fossil preparation, I only prepped some echinoderms, bivalve and some isolated Ictitherium teeth. But after reading and reading topic on this forum I decided to begin a bigger project. I bought an oreodont skull, as you can see from the photos it seems in really good conditions and the matrix seems really soft to work on. At the same time I see that there are many fracture on the skull (pretty normal for these fossils) and so I though that I should consolidate the skull before starting to prep it. Do you agree with me? How should I consolidate it? I read that a great way to consolidate such fossil is brushing them with a 1 to 50 paraloid solution. It this the correct strategy to use? Thank you to anyone who can help me on this task, I 'm so excited to start this project.
  12. For those who know my love of the White River, there will be no surprise here. I was trying to reorganize my collection a bit and had a large portion laid out on the floor. In this photo, I counted roughly 37 Oreodont skulls, I'm wondering if I have a problem. Adding a few additional ones I know of on my prep bench and at other properties, I'm fairly sure I'm north of 50. What fossils do you all collect too many of? If there is such a thing.
  13. ParkerPaleo's White River Prep

    Now that hockey season has ended and the lab is warm again, and perhaps due to my new found extra time in isolation, I am embarking on documenting my prep projects. I thought I would start the prep season off with something easy that should turn out fairly nice. Please welcome my new little friendly Oreodont, Miniochoerus gracilis. It came into my collection in the summer of 2013 and has sat jacketed in a box until today. This evening I concentrated primarily on consolidation and bulk matrix removal with an ARO, and still have a ways to go. The plan is to prepare the "down" side in the hopes of a beautiful orbit and zygomatic arch. I did notice a cross section of vertebrae on the rear of the block so there is probably some neck attached as well. I'm hoping there is enough matrix below the jaws to make a nice pedestal to sit on as well.
  14. 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?
  15. 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.
  16. Hello everyone,I've recently acquired this piece of unprepped oreodont jaw section and want to do some prep work on it However I've realized that the jaw looks quite fragmented and is afraid that it might break apart into thousands of fragments. I had only prepped a knightia before and I am kinda confused what I should do now.
  17. Type of Oreodont

    Hi all. Please help me identify this Oreodont. Found in White River, Oligocene. Thank you
  18. Hello folks, I started prepping this oreodont skull fossil last year and discovered a bone in it's mouth!!!! I know Oreodonts are herbivores, so, I am assuming it ended up there as a result of shifting mud-etc. But I thought it was interesting and wanted to share my discovery. This project is still in process.
  19. Hi, I've seen several sellers who labeled their Oreodont fossils as Leptauchenia. So I wondered are they the same thing or two different animals altogether? Thanks.
  20. Good day everyone, I'm looking into these two partial mammal skulls: An oreodont Merycoidodon and a Camel Poebrotherium. I'd like some help to find out if these are all real or have been partially fabricated, enhanced, composited, total fakes. Photos 1-4: Merycoidodon culbertsoni Oligocene Nebraska Photos 5-8: Camel Poebrotherium labiatum Brule Formation Oligocene-Whiteriverian Converse County, Wyoming
  21. Oreodont prep

    Thought I would share before and after of an Oreodont skull I prepped out. It still needs some detail work on the teeth. I have reconstructed the 2 upper canines, my first time ever reconstructing any part of a fossil and havent decided if I want to reconstruct the rest of the skull. What do you guys think?
  22. So I'm trying to teach my kids patience and teach them how to prep a skull. So far so good
  23. Unknown Maxilla from Oligocene

    Hey everyone, I was digging in the White River Formation when I found this amazing maxilla of some creature. Through some questioning and conversations with various paleontologists, many people have different opinions of what this is. The responses I’ve had are all different, being Oreodont, Dire Wolf, or a species from the family of Brontotheriidae. The w shaped teeth might suggest Brontotheriidae... What are your guy’s opinions? The maxilla is about 6 inches long.
