  1. What are the characteristics of a White River turtle shell that can differentiate between Stylemys and Gopherus (Testudo)?
  2. Tuesday on the White River

    Hello everyone! know I've been slacking on updates on my three week trip to Wyoming with PaleoProspectors, but I promise I will post some more of my finds and do a full recap of last week's adventure as soon as I can. As for tonight, I'll share my experience hunting in the white river formation today, A view of where I began my day hunting. My first find: A section of Paleolagus (rabbit) jaw. Next I found a native american artifact After entering a larger area of exposures I came across this Mesohippus (horse) jaw.
  3. White river teeth

    Today the wife and I hit my white river spot. It was a very successful hunt-my wife has a keen eye for fossils, much better than me! Anyway, this tooth was found. I immediately thought some kind of rhino or hippo. I’m thinking hyracodons? We also found this oval piece of enamel in the same area. I’m thinking mastodon for this one. These are total guesses on my part and I’m more familiar with the verts of Florida. Any thoughts are welcome and appreciated.
  4. Paleolagus

  5. 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.
  6. Finally getting around to working on a jigsaw puzzle I found in the White River Fm of Nebraska a couple of years ago. Pretty sure it’s a soft shelled turtle, but I’m not having luck finding anything like it online. The shell is eggshell thin and seems like it was leathery in life. There are a few bones included. Suggestions?
  7. 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.
  8. Another White River Skull For ID

    This is another skull in my collection that look very similar to the other that I posted. I believe this might be another Hyaenodon. Please have a look and let me know what you think.
  9. White River Bear Dog Skull?

    I have had this interesting skull for many years and was hoping someone might be able to narrow down what it is. I do not have any collection information as the person who found it is deceased. I know it is from the White River/ Brule formation. My best guess is some type of Beardog Daphoneus? Any help would be appreciated.
  10. Quick fossil jaw id

    Hey everyone! Sorry I’ve been absent from the forums lately. Been doing the geology gig and found a new fossil spot near home. white river formation-what’s the jaw? Any ideas? I’m not used to these western fossils!
  11. White River fm. tooth

    Hi everyone, I found this tooth over the summer in the White River formation of Wyoming. When I stumbled upon it, the tooth was already "exploded" into several pieces, so I glued it in place and dug around it, taking it out as a cemented chunk of dirt. At first I thought it was a young Archaeotherium canine, then I wasn't so sure and thought maybe Hyaenodon, I could be wrong and may not be predator at all as I know the rhinos, oreodonts and titanotheres all have canine teeth. A good amount of the crown is preserved along with several pieces of the root, however it is not complete and may be missing some vital pieces which could help us answer the question. the crown is around an inch and a half in length.
  12. With my last project wrapping up, this small skull was sitting on my desk and needs to get done. Way too much of my collection is in a half done state. Eumys is a cricetid, which includes modern voles, hamsters, mice and rats. When identifying one, the primary character I use is the shape of M1 and the fact it has no premolars. It's the only White River rodent I'm aware of with 3 teeth in the maxilla, most have 4 or 5 (I am prepared to be contradicted ) . M1 is very distinctive in that it has 5 cones. My plan is to remove the matrix from the side of the skull and expose the zygomatic (if its fully there). Will leave matrix in the orbits for stability. Then cut the base of the block below the occiptals and have the nose pointing in the air. I have been doing alot of pin and vice work to get it to this current state, I'll use a MicroJack-3 to get rid of the majority of the block. Not the greatest skull, and I have some better ones, but definitely something that you don't see every day.
  13. Lepticits

  14. Type of Oreodont

    Hi all. Please help me identify this Oreodont. Found in White River, Oligocene. Thank you
  15. I'm posting a current project in the hopes that it actually makes me finish it. I have a tendency to start several projects and set them aside for years. This Lepticitis was found in Wyoming in the late 90's. The initial prep was done by someone else (unknown) before the specimen made it to my collection. I've spent the last 5-6 hours under a scope removing glue, I would have almost surmised it was dipped in penetrant. It appears to have some abrasion damage as well, see the dorsal view of the skull above the orbits. I also took the opportunity to clean out foramen and do other various cleaning with pins and needles to get it to the state it is in now. Wish I'd though to get a pic before I started. Thanks to @jpc, I have some excellent photos of another Leptictis to base reconstruction off of. I'll post some more photos as the work progresses.
  16. Oligocene insectivore

    The garage was a bit chilly to work in today so I decide to work in the office at my scope a bit instead. I'd like to be able to identify this piece (Peratherium, Centetodon?) but I'm struggling with all the post cranial elements covering the teeth. Any suggestions from the perpetrator community for how to proceed?
  17. 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.
  18. Been working on a guy for over a year to get some white river material. He came right through Helena on his way to another fossil local in Canada. You cant see anything in this photo but some rather large jackets. Got a very nice disarticulated oreodont skull and a very nice rhino skull with other bones too. I also got a smaller jacket and now cant even remember what it is? This getting forgetful is a pain in the rear but at least I wasn't cooking? Ha! The oreodont is probably going to Australia and havent decided yet what to do with the other two projects? Ive really gotten/aquired/bought/traded for a heck of alot of fossil projects this year!!! To say the least!!! Im also just about broke! Still haven't finished my other White River projects from last year and I will also be getting a truckload of Fox Hills material in just over a week! Life is good. Or im a horder? RB
  19. An exploded stylemys tortoise

    So I've lurked on the forum for some time and decided to post my project. This is a stylemys tortoise that I've had since high school. It was really never worth recovering, being incomplete and completely disarticulated due to weathering. It was also somewhat crushed with only the plastron being in decent shape. Despite the challenge, I've decided to push onward, because it's got sentimental value at this point. The plastron was pretty easy to assemble: I have about 75% of the carapace (comprising the vertebral and costal scutes) but I only have about 50% of the edge (marginal scutes). This was the really painful part. Everything visible here was re-assembled from small disarticulated pieces: Here's some more carapace and all the leftover bits: My original hope was that I'd have enough to re-assemble the entire shell as one piece, without having to fill the holes. However it's clear that I don't really have a complete shell, nor is the bone strong enough to support itself without filling the gaps. In particular I'm missing most of the bridge connecting the carapace to the plastron. The plan now is to use epoxy to fill in the missing shell where necessary. I am undecided as to what extent I will try to color match the restoration (versus leaving it a different color to identify the restoration). Steve
  20. I'm restoring a titanothere cervical vert and process, and I want to be accurate. Can anyone suggest a research site? The sites I've found have the articulated spinal columns , which don't have the detail I need. I need at least a front and rear view. Thanks! Barb
  21. I finally got around to working on some Oreodont stuff. Last year I stopped by a friends house and bought a bunch of White River material. (my friend is going to stop by this May and bring me a bunch more). I did some work on some Oreodont stuff 20 some years ago and figured it would be fun to work on some more. I will call this skull #1. I realized at once that some of the skull was missing. Not good. I had already opened up this one and took off a bunch of loose rock and then decided to take a photo. You can see the earthquake crack in the rock and this thing was litterally falling apart all over the place. In this picture ive removed all the materail on the right of the crack including upper and lower jaw pieces. I was quite nervous but it was also fun and exciting. At this point ive use up almost an intire 2 oz bottle of super glue to hold the top part of this all together and when I turned it over, very carefully, lots of rock just came off with no prodding or nothing. The good thing was that the upper part held together and you can easily see the lower part of the lower jaws. At this point it was time for a wiskey. Here I glued back on the missing lower teeth. This thing was so fractured and falling apart the nothing really fit like it was supposed to but did the best that i could. Those extra two pieces on the left hand side also need to be glued back together and then both glued back onto the skull. Ok, bottom pieces glued back on and now set aside to cure. Tomorrow is gunna be a fun day. RB
  22. On my wife and my epic fossil trip this fall we spent a day in Nebraska in the White River badlands. Found some of the normal stuff...nothing spectacular but neat for us as we had this as a "bucket list" locality. One of our best finds was an oreodont skull. I found the nose at the bottom of a gully, and worked my way up until I found the outline of the broken bone. I dug out a volleyball-size chunk of rock and brought it home. Just finished prepping it out. It needs some reconstruction of areas around the snout that were weathered away, but all in all I am pleased with how it came out. At camp with a little rough prep to see what we had. Top view while at camp. Packed it away at this point. Underside after reattaching the muzzle.
  23. Hello forum preppers....need some advice. I started what I thought would be a very easy prep on a partial turtle I found in Nebraska this past fall. It was in 2 halves about 5 feet apart on a slope. Clean, glue together. Easy peasy. But....when I started cleaning I found that at least part of Mr. Turtle is still at home in the shell. So....I'm trying to figure the best approach. I'm thinking that I may remove the plastron as it is not all there, put it together and use it as a removable "lid" and then prep out the inside of the shell some. Problem with that is that it would lead to displaying the turtle upside down with the best looking part on the bottom. Also, can anyone ID the species at this point? Ideas appreciated!
  24. White river: How hard?

    Hello all I don't have much prep experience, and since I have very bad eyes I have trouble with microscopes to prepare fossils. I would like to learn how to work with my airscribe tought. So I want to prep fairly large fossils I can do without microscope. I have some stuff from France and Belgium I found myself, but or these don't need prep, or I don't dare to because I don't want to destroy my rare self-found fossils. So I came across the fairly common white river stuff. I found a website where I can buy unprepped oreodont bones and skulls. But what do you to prep these? Are they possible for total newbies when it comes to prepping? Is the matrix fairly loose or is it very stiky? I have an air scribe but don't know how to use glue. I've tried trilobites before but those are too tiny. I'm looking forward to your advise.
