  2. What is this?

    Grandson found this in an outcrop of immature sandstone in the proximal fluvial facies of the Paleocene Fort Union Formation in Park County, Montana. My current guess, based on the age of the outcrop and the depositional paleo-environment, is that it is a fossil plant, although it doesn't look much like one.
  3. Paleocene Dinosaurs

    So I was looking through some “older” papers and found this one by Rigby et al. (1987)(pdf attached). They were looking at some of the rock formations specifically members of the Hell Creek Formation. In one area, they have a lot of river deposits from before and after the K-T boundary. In one of the river deposits from the Paleocene as dated by pollen fossils, contains ungulate mammal fossils and some dinosaur teeth specifically ceratopsian and theropod teeth as far as I understood. They recognize that the dinosaur fossils could have been eroded from the bank and fallen in but the fossils aren’t weathered like they should have been and the river wasn’t the right kind that would rework sediments. I’m not sure I believe their arguments but what do you guys think? Rigby-et-al_1987_Paleocene-dinos.pdf
  4. A few pics from my 1st and only day at Purse State Park. I'm not really sure what I have here but would love to hear from you guys. I tried to group them with similar teeth but I'm sure I mixed a few. Sorry for no scale in the photos. I'll have to get a flat ruler for the future I guess. All teeth were between1/4" and 3/4" more or less. And I may have some of the same teeth in different pics. Thanks for looking. Andy
  5. I had been wanting to get back to the Calvert Cliffs since my 1st trip there in early 2018. I had the Thanksgiving weekend off and the weather forecast looked good for 3 days so I went. It was beautiful weather down there for hunting. Honking winds blew the water out of the bay the first 2 days but you couldn't feel it behind the cliffs. It did make for some hard hunting. But I had 3 days and nothing else to do so I got down on the ground so I could see what I was looking at and mostly just sifted through the dry shell material. I didn't have high hopes but it was beautiful to be outside. And I must say, I found something special every day I was there. I hunted all day Thursday before checking into my hotel and getting a Bob Evens dinner. Then I re-raked the gravel a little while Friday morning before getting some breakfast and spending the rest of the day exploring Purse State Park for the first time. I woke up a little later Saturday so I could have some free breakfast at the Rod 'n Reel Resort before hunting. I was lucky because the weather shifted and the tide was back in. It made for some enjoyable kitty-litter-scooper scooping all day. The tide never dropped more than a couple inches maybe so I just stood near the water line and scooped up anything I could see. Here's some pics.
  6. What do y'all think these are? They're bits of debris from a slide I was working on. All I can really tell you is that they were photographed at 40X magnification, scale bar 50 microns. This set of slides is across the Paleocene to Eocene, but I unfortunately don't know what rock this single slide sample is from. Sample is from the Hanna Basin in Wyoming.
  7. Croc tooth? Aquia formation

    Hello all, first post on the forums despite joining awhile ago. Last winter I was fortunate enough to have some serious luck at Purse State Park in 2 consecutive trips while I was on break. Thanks to @Williamb55I was able to finally muster some motivation to seek some help to ID what I believe is a Crocodile tooth and Otodus from the Paleocene Epoch. Of course this could be inaccurate but I would love some insight into my find, comments and replies are appreciated. Best, DF

  14. My girlfriend, Valerie and I planned a two week trip to New Mexico and Colorado to visit friends, see scenery, and attend the Peach Festival in Palisades. Of course fossil collecting would be a part of it. I spent a full day with PFOOLEY outside Albuquerque in the Puerco Valley hunting ammonites in the Carlile Member of the Upper Cretaceous Mancos Shale.

  24. Pachygaleus tooth?

    Hey everyone, realizing right now that I haven't posted any fossils of my own in quite a while on the forum. Anyway, I found this tooth back in 2016 on my trip to the potomac river in maryland. It was found at purse state park which has exposures of the paleocene Aquia formation. When I first took a closer look at this tooth I was surprised to see that it had a shape which I had associated with Tiger sharks. I did some research online and found that Pachygaleus would be a match as they are present in that strata. It has been a while since that initial discovery but I wanted to confirm my idea on the forum. It's about .6 cm wide at the root and about .4 cm long. Thanks, PN
