Today I went with Dr. Steve Nicklas and others from PaleoProspectors to a private ranch outside of Lusk, WY to help them excavate some Titanothere fossils from a bone bed they had discovered earlier this season ahead of the guests arriving for this week of fossil hunting. It was a hot and humid day (for Wyoming) and being in the white river formation where the white exposures reflect the light back towards you, it only made things hotter. But we dealt with the temperatures and got some awesome fossils out of the ground. I also got to keeps some fossils I found that weren't associated with the working area. Here are some pics-
Hey everyone, I found these teeth in the White River fm of eastern Wyoming last summer and wanted to see what people on the forum thought they were. 1st is what I believe to be an oreodont tooth (possibly Merycoidodon). It's .8 cm wide and 1.5 cm from root to crown. 2nd I believe may be a Poebrotherium tooth but I'm unsure. It's about .5 cm wide and .9 cm long. 3rd may be from a Leptomeryx but I'm not sure. It's about .4 cm wide and .9 cm long.
Hi all! I found this jaw section in Wyoming's White River fm. last year and was told it was likely from a dog (hesperocyon potentially). I wanted to confirm it with some of the people on the forum as there's not a lot left on it aside from part of a tooth, hopefully someone can affirm my hope that this piece actually belongs to a canid.
