  1. Past hour
  2. Long Clam

    Found this long clam (and several others) in Long Creek Hood County Texas. I can't find any pictures of this type of a clam. It is about 4" long. Anybody know of a name for this?
  3. Kem kem

    Neat! I always love these scans, thanks for sharing.
  4. eocene mammal skull from suthwest France

    That looks potentially very interesting. Looking forward to seeing how you prep this.
  5. Still having fun with my Miroscope camera.....giving me something to do to keep my mind off the "future". . I am finally getting around to photographing my finds from England. So many tiny ammonites from the Jurassic Coasat! And crinoids and belemnites and a tny gastropod! Plus a few little worm tubes from inland. I can't believe it took me this long to get around to taking photos of the littles! All the ammonites are around 1/2 inch. Tiny Pyraatized gastropod 1/4 Inch Isocrinus Crinoid segments : 1/4 Inch Belemnites: One Inch Worm Tubes :
  6. Kem kem

    I initially didn't post it since it wasn't relevant to identifying the possible raptor femur. And Bambiraptor feinbergi humerus for reference. Though much more slender, Archaeopteryx and Troodontids are also similar. So far as I can tell, nothing else comes even close. And the humerus of the Noasaurid Masiakasaurus knopfleri.

    My point being for the purpose of this topic is that you cannot assign a bone to a group of dinosaurs that has not been described from the KK despite some antidotal evidence. You need some scientific evidence that has been published to support that claim. Not aware of any.
  8. My Fossil Room is a Mess

    Done for today. I hope you enjoyed the at home lockdown fossil hunting. More to come tomorrow weather permitting.
  9. Moroccan trilo

    Phacops I believe. I'm afraid I can't help with species, that comes down to a lense count and is beyond my expertise. Someone else may be able to give you a species name.
  10. What is it

    I see sandstone. Just sandstone.
  11. Would any one have a free downloadable pdf for the title below please. Henry A. Ward, "Catalogue of Casts of Fossils" (1866) and the Artistic Influence of Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins on Ward Jane P. Davidson Transactions of the Kansas Academy of Science (1903-) Vol. 108, No. 3/4 (Fall, 2005), pp. 138-148
  12. Tooth found in river sediments, Connecticut

    Show us the bottles you've found in the excavation, Paul. Historical archaeology can be fascinating.
  13. What is it

    Why do we have "cetaceans" in the tags if you have no idea what it is?
  14. Looks to me to be the extreme end of a femoral head (the "ball" part of the ball joint). Could be an epiphysis -- I'm not sure of the form of such a epiphysis.
  15. barnicles shell

    Hi Byron, The first one is, I think, geological i.e. a mineral not a fossil. However a much closer photo might be informative. The second specimen is a nice fossil pecten (scallop). How big is it? Don
  16. Are these fossils?

    The wombat in question is called "palorchestes".
  17. Today
  18. Kem kem

    Is it possible you could post the specimen you have for reference?
  19. barnicles shell

    Second one is a pecten shell
  20. Great looking crab! Great job!
  21. What do all these layers mean?

    Well, the bottom layer looks like a limestone, a gully has been eroded through it in a classic 'v' shape. Above that is a bivalve coquina - lots of storm crushed bivalves deposited en masse in a clayey matrix. This may, of course, represent several storms over a long period of time. Above that a rough marl, judging by the uneven distribution of pieces and the lack of clear layering, probably deposited in a high energy environment. This is also supported by rough pieces of transported rock like the lump in your second picture, but as it's irregular, as in not very rounded and smooth, but not completely sharp and angular, i would suggest it has been transported, but not very far. Just under the seemingly quite thin soil layer at the top, is a subsoil of what appear to be quite well preserved bivalve shells, suggesting more gentle deposition of this marl, which hasn't been compacted or compressed enough yet to crush all the shells. That's what I see, anyway, i'm sure others will have their own take.
  22. Flint nodule

    Thanks I didn’t know that!
