    Plesiosaur tooth

    Since I've recently been honored by the forum, I thought I'd add a little extra this month. Here is a nice little plesiosaur tooth I was lucky enough to find in the Lincoln limestone yesterday. It is my first plesiosaur from this location.

    Tiny Enchodus Skull?

    My Mom (being the totally awesome Mom that she is) took me on a fossil hunting trip when I was thirteen (way back in 2003) out in the Smokey Hill Chalk of Kansas with a group of students. We got to dig on a private ranch and I found this specimen splitting a layer of the chalk. I learned really quickly to follow an older gentleman that was one of the organizers of the trip and he'd tell me about the layers we were digging in and of past finds which I found very interesting. When he found a string of fish vertebra sticking out of the chalk I asked if I could dig into the hill beside him. He sai

    C2T Ranch - Kansas

    Hey gang! Im on location at the C2T ranch. I’ll be updating this thread over the weekend as I stumble on new stuff. base camp is set. Snow melted. Rain quit. 3 hours before dark. already a bonanza. this is the fire pit at my campsite:
  5. Hello Gang! Been Missing in Action for a bit as I was out doing some field work hunting worms. While looking for a place to camp out in the middle of nowhere, I ended up finding a private ranch along the saline river which made my jaw drop (See Photo pulled from their site). Sadly, it was too short of notice for me to check it out in person and the weather was getting epic. However, it turns out they not only allow camping and fossil hunting for a small fee, they encourage it as they are very interested to learn about what they have on their property.

    Finds on the KAW

    I've started my journey into finding places to hunt along the KAW. With advice from people here and some research on my own, this week I've done some "test pits" where I'd take an hour or less before work testing out via walking around a site and see what I can find, to see if it's worth returning to. And so far I've had great success. I've found multiple pieces of bone, teeth, shell and marine animals (Fusulinids, crinoids, bryozoans, etc). I made a longer visit to the best site I've found yet and recovered more pieces. It's all been just surface searching, with only minor digging in for part

    Public Hunting Areas-Questions

    I’ve read of 2 places here on FF where fossil hunting is allowed in KS. Monument Rocks and Castle Rock. I made my way out to both these places over the last few days since work is slow. At Monument Rocks there was a sign that specifically said fossil hunting wasn’t allowed. Can anybody give me any clarification on this? Also both places sort of had a main area but in the same general area there were many other exposures of the chalk that weren’t behind fences and easily accessible by foot. Are these other exposures also allowed to be hunted? From what I understand
  8. Hi guys! I am looking for new areas to hunt for rocks and fossils around the KC area. I have been to the Blue river, Kansas river, Cedar creek, Tuttle creek, Perry Lake, Mill creek, and abandoned quarry areas. Anyone have any general locations of where I can find some stuff? I am an avid hunter for all sorts of fossils and rocks (rockhounding is my favorite past time)! I've had the most luck at the Kansas river and Perry lake. Some of my finds include cow skulls, cone coral, shells, agates, vertebrae, and a bunch of druzy quartz geodes and chalcedony. I ha

    Bird or Turtle Toe?

    Hello, Just wanted to hear your thoughts on this element. Collected from the upper Smoky Hill Chalk Member of the Niobrara Formation in Logan county, Kansas. Let me know if you need more info or pictures. In my heart I want this to be a hesperornithiform, but I'm also getting the "turtle vibe" from this piece. Let me know what you think!

    Bones and sponges? Help?

    Hello Fossil friends! I have a couple fossils(?) I'm going to see if I can get help identifying. I found all of them in the same local area of a river shore in northeastern Kansas, so I'm assuming Pennsylvanian time frame. I have some fossils that are obvious shells and coral, but these I'm not sure and would like your input! If you need more photos or angles, let me know. #1 I think is a fish vertebrae that's slightly flattened. It's about 1 cm x .3 cm.

    Cretoxyrhina Tooth

    Identification: ginsu teeth have broad lingual dental bands, rounded root lobes, a strong lingual protuberance in the roots of anterior teeth, smooth crown faces, and no nutrient groove. Notes: Has damage on the lingual side, perhaps a self-inflicted gash as the tooth fell out of the mouth. Otherwise, a perfect tooth with a very sharp point.

    Petrified Wood?

    Ok, this is my first post, and I think I read the rules right, so if I didn't do anything right just let me know and I'll fix it. So I bought this boulder off a guy. It's about 3 ft long, 2 ft wide, and weighs about 200 lb. The guy told me that it probably came from Kansas or Minnesota. He couldn't remember very well. But I am in Lincoln Nebraska so I suspect it's probably Kansas. I asked a guy for information about it here in Lincoln. Specifically I asked him if this was a petrified log and if the big lump on the side was a concretion. He said that "This is a weat
  13. I found some bone fragments up in some ogallala formation in Kansas. I also found this complete tooth I was hoping someone could identify for me.

    Pleistocene leg bone ID

    Hello, I posted this before, but my thread was too disjointed for comfort so I am posting again. I found this bone end (I think it is a tibia) with some other ice age bits and ends and have no idea what it came from. Im pretty sure it is not bovid, from what I am familiar with. Anything could help, and this was found on a riverbed in NE Kansas.
  15. Dear Forum members, A few years ago I bought this piece from a fellow collector. The description mentioned that it is probably a Platecarpus sp. atlas and axis vertebrae, Niobrara Fm. Gove Co. Kansas. I think that this is acutally the supraoccipital, epioccipital, basisphenoid and several other skull parts. I do not know if this is indeed from a Platecarpus species? if so, which species could this be? I'd like to know whether this piece is Coniacian, Santonian or Campanian in age. Perhaps the preservation already can point in a direction. the fossils are all very flatt

    Vertebrae or Concretions?

    Skull ID

    Hello, new to the forum and looking for some help with this skull cap I found. It was found on the Kansas River in central Kansas after heavy rains. I included one picture exactly where I found it and a few pictures of it now after it's dried in my garage. It's approximately 3' wide and very heavy. I have an idea what it might be but would like to hear some opinions. Thank you for any assistance.

    Cretaceous shark centrum?

    Hi all, My mom was going through some old things in the basement and found this. She said she found it when she was a kid, so I'm making assumptions it was found in Ellis County, Kansas. I've found several sharks teeth in the area which I believe are primarily Cretoxyrhina and Squalicorax based on location and pictures on this sites like these. My very amateur guess is centrum from one of those two, but am curious as to your thoughts. Thanks

    Wierd tubular fossil

    I found this wierd tubular fossil while rock hunting in central kansas limestone. Any ideas ?
  21. Took me a little while to post this trip report, I'm always a busy person. This trip is from October 3rd, 2020 in Ellsworth County, Kansas at a reservoir. The predominant formation at the site I visited is Kiowa formation; which is known for marsh and delta environments in the early Cretaceous (Albian). I found some interesting things and I'll show below. Possibly some carbonized wood materials. Lignite or coal? It was flaky and would crumble if touched. It left some black powders on my hands after handling it. I found several large pieces of them together and partly encased in con
