Darbi posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsToday I had a good time with fossil hunting at the Dakota formation (early Cenomanian) sites and Greenhorn formation (Cenomanian-early Turonian) sites in Ellsworth county, Kansas. Typical view of the local countryside, but still beautiful! I keep finding these weird vertebrae-like rocks, clustered in this particular site and not other sites. I suspect it's not vertebrae but I still can't figure this out yet. These mysterious vertebrae-like rocks...reminds me of shark centrum and crinoid stems but I don't think it's them. This site is Dakota forma
Hey everyone, I found this little jaw last Summer in the Lincoln Limestone, Greenhorn Formation, late Cretaceous in Kansas. After reading some information forwarded by Ramo about Coniasaurus and how they are fairly common in the Lincoln Limestone I was wondering if I might have found a partial jaw. I am completely unfamiliar with Coniasaurus and really don't know. I just thought it looked very similar and un-fish like given the shape of the teeth (or roots). Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance. Jamie PS. There is micro shark tooth just below the jaw. Probably unrelated, but
