  1. What’s this fish?

    A freebie to me. Common I’m sure, but what is it? From Parachute Creek I think. Yes, committed the cardinal sin, no scale. It’s around 8cm. @Fossildude19
  2. Hey everyone! Even though we are well into 2019 I thought I should share my top ten finds of the year. These will not be ranked as each one has their own value to me although some are rarer than others. Let me know if you want a better view of any of the fossils. 1. Bird Talon (Hawk or other raptor), Peace River, Florida.

  6. This small 'insect' was purchased from a thought-to-be trusted seller at a shop close to where I live. I have been a little sceptical and was wondering what an expert's opinion may tell me. Is it a fabrication? Is it real, just badly preserved?
  7. Worn Nano tooth?

    I got this worn theropod tooth a little while ago. It's labeled as Nanotyrannus from the Lance Formation, Weston County, Wyoming. However, it looks a bit odd compared to other Nano teeth I've seen. Is it a tip from a larger tooth? Can it even be identified when this worn? Have at it Scale is in centimeters
  8. I'm trading a bunch of fossils mainly from Utah and Wyoming but some other locations as well. In return I'm looking for theropod teeth, ammonites, trilobites, crabs, gastropods, and more shark teeth or anything else that's interesting. You can reply here directly or PM me. I'll post another set some time later this week. Here is the assortment. Wyoming Knightia (Green River Formation, Eocene) Assortment of brachiopods, a crinoid holdfast in the middle, and pyritized worm burrows from Paulding Co, Ohio (Silica Shale, Devonian) Fossilized Great White tooth from Cape Town Another Great White: Knightia Elrathia kingii (Wheeler Shale Utah, Cambrian) The following Wyoming Knightia (Green River Formation, Eocene) Some are in better condition. There's a couple that haven't been completely prepared. I know some of you like to prepare your own fossils: Elrathia kingii More Paulding Ohio fossils (horned corals and brachiopods): A Phareodus scale: Another Great White: A St. Mary's formation Chesapecten conglomerate from Calvert Cliffs, MD:
  9. Sorry for the long wait for this post. I said I was going to do a write up for it in the days following my return, then once again in October and then after I had finished my trip report from my 2016 trip to Maryland's Potomac River back in December, but alas I never got to it. But now I'm finally sitting down to write about my experience from my week spent fossil hunting in Wyoming's badlands. I flew out of Boston in the morning of July 13th and landed in Denver by around mid-day. My parents got the rental car and we were on our way to eastern Wyoming. It was dinner time when we pulled into Laramie and we went to a Mexican Restaurant which had great food but gargantuan portions, we made our way back to the Comfort Inn we were staying at and soon got a grasp of how low quality it was. Sockets coming out of walls, old hairs on the bed, the scent of cigarette smoke permeating throughout the room, not quite as comfortable as advertised. The next day we left the motel in haste and went to the University of Wyoming's geologic museum, which had a number of great displays of fossils of which many were found within the state. Here are few shots of what we saw.
  10. Barosaurus prep

    These past few months I've been working on the weekends as part of a team of amateur and professional paleontologists to prepare a large Barosaurus at the Museum of Ancient Life in Lehi, UT. From October to January I have worked on two large vertebrae from this adult Barosaurus. I believe we won't know the gender until we begin work on the pelvis but not to many of these species have been uncovered so we'll have to compare some other models. It's been a very rewarding journey so far. Here's a couple of pictures of preparation work with a Paleo Tool Air Scribe (forgot the model but one of the larger ones) in October. I'll try to get some before and after photos as we're making tremendous progress on these vertebrae. Behind me is a large 9-ton jacket containing a group of Utahraptors and an herbivore (sand pit). I'm not allowed to post any photos of that but the sickle claws and raptor teeth are a very impressive sight. FYI I realize this isn't as finite or fragile a work as the prep jobs @Malcolmt or @Ptychodus04 do but hey it's a start. Working on the vertebrae's. A near complete vertebrae is on the bottom right. I now wear a mask since the matrix particles are so fine and can get into your lungs and eyes. On the wall above me is a skeletal layout of an adult Barosaurus. The red filled in portions indicate the bones we've already recovered. The pelvis, back femurs, feet, and an assortment of vertebrae. The head is yet to be found and might not be in this jacket. Up close of the vertebrae. Another angle Another angle with some near complete tail sets behind me. If you look closely you'll see some completed vertebrae in the background. Another angle Working from behind the glass so viewers can come see. This is a rewarding, volunteer based opportunity where I feel like I can give back to the community. Occasionally I'll poke my head out to educate those passing by. The youngsters really like this exhibit. Smiling for the camera. Fossil description is on the bottom left. The nine ton sleeve containing the Utahraptors is directly behind me. Another angle This might be my favorite. It shows most of the vertebrae lined up. This photo was taken back in October and I'm amazed at how far it's already come along. Really excited to post some closer photos and will compile a time lapse. A bit fuzzy but another angle Another angle Another angle Another angle (yes I'm wearing my Penn Dixie fleece FYI @DevonianDigger)
  11. Lance formation matrix fun

    I had picked up a box full of Lance formation matrix bits a little while ago. This evening while in the garage I couldn't fight the urge to poke around a bit at a couple of pieces. I probably should only focus at one at a time....but temptation. I didn't really mess will the champsosaurus vertibrea in the matrix. I broke out the dental picks and started to play with these chunks. I didn't stay out there long because it doesn't have heat but there are some interesting things that are exposed. Hopefully I can get a spot in the basement set up so I can get deeper into this. I don't know I this fits better in the fossil hunting section or the fossil preparation section.

  13. Croc Jaw w/Unerupted Tooth

  14. Crocodile Jaw pt.1

    From the album Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    I found this piece and initially thought it could be champsosaur, later on some forum members believed it to be crocodilian so it likely belonged to Borealosuchus, Brachychampsa or another unnamed genus. Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian~ 66 mya) Lance formation
  15. Crocodile Tooth

    cf. Borealosuchus sternbegii Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian~ 66 mya) Lance formation
