I still have a lot of work to do. I think cleaning the mud off took me about the same amount of time as it took to extract them. I must say though they’re so easy to clean compared to other stuff I collect.

I need to start stabilizing them and gluing them back together.

Here is my FOTM entry! I’m going to join Kane on the trilobite train :). I finally figured out this is a Kainops invius trilobite (no pun intended haha). 

 

I found this on January 9th 2019 and prepped it on January 26th 2019. 

 

Kainops invius

Geologic formation: Bois D’Arc Formation 

Geologic age: Lower Devonian 

Location: Clarita, Oklahoma (Theisons quarry)

 

Wow! it is a beauty and nice prep work.

Here is a shark tooth I found this month while sieving matrix collected last year.

This one I am not sure if it is pathological or positional as the side cusps are not sharp and pronounced as in previous specimens and quite rare at the best of times.

My understanding is this is the earliest example of this species so an interesting find.

 

Date of discovery - 11-1-19 

Scientific name -Johnlongia sp 

Geologic age - Albian cretaceous

Formation - toolebuc

Site - Central Queensland Australia

Nice specimen! Good job finding that one :)

Nice shark tooth. Very unusual shape compared to most modern day shark teeth. What's the overall length on that tooth? Hard to judge with no scale.

 

Cheers.

Nice tooth!

Just a note for US readers: the rest of the world rather logically enters dates as day/month/year, so Mike's tooth was collected Jan 11 2019, and so is "in date" for the contest.

Indeed! That and our incomplete acceptance of the metric system have been a source of personal shame at a global level for decades. For dates, I personally use YYYY-MM-DD as an unambiguous date format that sorts better on computers as a bonus.

 

Well noted that this lovely specimen is "in date" and not the result of Marty McFly time travel (which would allow some stunning fossils to be entered if used properly). ;)

 

Cheers.

US military generally writes dates as 31Jan19, so they are on the same page at least. :ighappy:
