  1. Past hour
  2. North Sulphur River Texas

    Thanks for the photo tour and congrats on the finds. Water may have been high, but it still looked quite productive.
  3. Billion year old fossil fungi

  4. May 2019 - Finds of the Month Entries

    Semi-complete Mamenchisaurid Sauropod May 17th, 2019 Middle Jurassic (Bajocian, 170 mya) Hexing formation, Gansu, China 3 days of digging, 8 bones (pelvic elements, vertebrae, ribs, chevron facets) uncovered, bone layer of the individual still covered in a thick layer of sandstone which will require one year of excavation to extract all the bones. Individual is a young adult, estimated to be around 50 feet in length. Will update in another thread as more bones are extracted. Possible partial right pubis (?), unsure until furthered prepped in lab. The first bone of the individual I found. Left pubis, sticking deeper into the layer Double pair of ischium, in natural positioning (right ischium still partially covered in picture) Nice little chevron facet head
  5. North Sulphur River Texas

    Very neat field report! I like the in situ teeth pictures -Christian
  6. Vertebrates

    My main interest is fossil fish, but you will also find some other vertebrates like amphibians, mammals, reptiles and birds here in this album: Fossils from Solnhofen, Messel, Holzmaden, Liaoning, Bergisch Gladbach, Green River, Linton, Mazon Creek, Monte Bolca, Fiume Marecchia.....and other places around the world.
  7. fish or reptile

    Definitely thinking Enchodus. Cross-section, elongated shape, and bone-like interior all point to Enchodus.
  8. Mammoth Tooth?

    I agree with Harry. Very cool and strange!
  9. Show us your plastic dinosaur

    In our garden a collection of vintage British Museum prehistoric creatures.
  10. Mammoth Tooth?

    I totally agree. Spectacular!
  11. Water was a little high but I found a few things at the North Sulphur River Texas.
  12. Theropod Teeth Morphology - Kem Kem Basin

    Could well be! I think even one species being described in black and white at this point would go a long way to helping clear up the confusing mess that is the Kem Kem. It's exciting that there's still so much left to discover there, but the mystery isn't doing us any favours!
  13. Today
  14. North Sulphur River Texas!

    It's still a slow project. I haven't seen any land being cleared yet. They will probably survey for years. I still have plenty of spots once they build it that should still be good. Just message me when that happens and I can help you out where to go.
  15. Great photos hopfully we can get some clarification on these different morphologies. Just could be positional variations or normal differences between animals.
  16. Invertebrates

    My main interest is fossil fish, but here in this album, you will only find invertebrates: Fossils from Solnhofen, Messel, Holzmaden, Liaoning, Bundenbach, Green River, Linton, Mazon Creek, Monte Bolca, Fiume Marecchia... Have fun!
  17. Hungry Hollow Member

    Nice trip Kane!!! Great finds
  18. Great White or Carcharocles Angustidens

    I totally understand what you're saying. I wasn't worried about you guys taking my honey hole. I just can't narrow it down because its the only accessible spot in the area and it wouldn't be hard for a guest to figure out my spot. I do know the formation I'm pulling these from so next time I will make sure to add that when I have a new mystery. Thank you.
  19. Mammoth Tooth?

    Uh ha, a molcisor from a mammodon. Google that one.
  20. Identifying layers of sediment

    The vert and the rostral were in the same shovel scoop as well which was crazy
  21. Identifying layers of sediment

    Yeah I was pretty pumped when I saw it in the tray lol the root structure is all intact too luckily!
  22. Help

    I was searching for that name in my head as I was typing it and was drawing a blank, ha. Agreed.
  23. Don't Fossil Hunt Adjacent to Gun Ranges

    Whole-heartedly agree with you Carl.
  24. Don't Fossil Hunt Adjacent to Gun Ranges

    We did end up reporting the incident with the sheriff so I hope something is done about it. I don't think it is the shooter's fault as much as poor placement and structure of the range. I'm a southern boy, some label me crimson-necked (forum wouldn't let me post the other word, hah), I think guns are great tools and I know how to responsibly use them. And normally I would feel very safe around them except when I'm unknowingly downrange.
  25. Theropod Teeth Morphology - Kem Kem Basin

    Hope you don't mind, Troodon, but I thought I'd add photos of my latest Theropod indet. tooth to this thread for reference, since it doesn't seem to match any of the currently known tooth morphologies. - Robust profile. - Mesial carina extends 1/2 way down the mesial margin. - Distal carina reaches cervix. - No wrinkled enamel. - No apparent interdental succuli. Denticle count at midline (over 5mm): Mesial: 13 Distal: 10 Mesial Margin: Distal Margin: Cross Section: Denticle comparison (distal carina) with Carcharodontosaurid tooth of approx. same size: Theropod indet Carch. indet Serrations appear to be slightly smaller/thinner, with wider spacing between each denticle on close inspection.
  26. Predation Marks on Hebertella?

    Agree with Medio &Tidgy there BTW: brachpredatbullmarsci29320653_s12.pdf Michal Kowalewski* and Karl W.
