Well done, Sir!  :)

Beauty of a tooth. 

Neat that it's still on the matrix. :wub: 

Way to go, Mike.

The matrix ended up being very interesting as well...

...full of fish teeth and tidbits. :)

Ooow wow!  That matrix looks like you could spend hours fossil hunting under a microscope.  :)

Could it be a coprolite?

It is an unnamed sandstone layer. I have found it in a few areas...just below the horizon that is producing the C. praecox specimens.

If it were full of tiny ammonites, then yes...hours. ;)

A window in time worth exploring.  :wub:   Spectacular.

 

Is the caprock a different formation or member?

It is the uppermost layer of the Semilla Sandstone, which was an offshore bar deposit in the Western Interior. I am curious to know what caused the change. :headscratch:

:) ...there were teeny patches hiding in the shadows of the grass bunches on the North sides of slopes.

Nice selenite crystals.  :D  I'll bet they are blinding from the 'right' angle.  :)
