Thanks, Roger...I wish it had more shell on it but it is still quite nice.

There are. I have collected B. yokoyamai from the (Turonian) Juana Lopez Member of the Mancos Shale, B. codyensis from the (Santonian) Satan Tongue of the Mancos Shale and two Baculites sp., one from the (Coniacian) Tocito Sandstone Lentil and one from the (Coniacian) Gallup Sandstone (the latter two may be the same species). 

Sorry I just read this. Do you have pictures to share? I’d enjoy seeing what those look like.

...very pleased with this new knowledge from the Juana Lopez, I cruised a bit through the Carlile.

 

This little gem...

...was an excellent way to end a beautiful winter day...and a perfect reason to bust out my new M.P.C.* :D

 

Peace, love and Ammonites,

 

-P.

 

*if you need an M.P.C. of your own, you need to contact @aerogrower

That looks a lot like an ammonite I see impressions of in the Kamp Ranch of the Eagle Ford, but nevef see the ammonite.

Very pretty and sweet ammonite.

I recently made my way back to shaley slopes of the Juana Lopez and was not disappointed. :)

 

My first encounter with Hourcquia mirabilis...

...a rarity from the Juana Lopez that I had only read about until now.

 

My last few trips brought some large Coilopoceras inflatum...this time around I was shown their true potential for size...

...wowser! :o ...

Did you actually recover that one? It looks quite heavy. How many inches is it?

Not sure if I have some already here...if not, I will take some and share. :)

I did not. After excavation, I found it was too crumbly in the center to hold. Sometimes the the calcite is very solid, other times it crumbles in your fingers.

I am in my usual November funk as a result of weeks cloudy skies this time of year. It gave me a reprieve to visit your pictures and admiring the great fossils found under cloudless skies!!!!

You definitely have a special place to engage in fossil collecting.
