  1. Went to attempt some new sites in Emmons County North Dakota yesterday. It was a pretty intensive day (out for 12-13 hours) for only a little bit of fossils but I thought some people might like to see the usual trip report photos and fossils I did find. Extensive clayey shale exposures are always worth photographing. Some horses were curious what I was up to but eventually lost interest. I'm not 100% sure this is Fox Hills (the clayey shale exposures of the Trail City and Timber Lake members look a lot like Pierre Shale when not accompanied by sandstone) but it didn't produce so it
  2. Despite the shortest and most mild winter I've experienced in North Dakota (getting out this early is rare) it still feels like it has been an eternity since I got out. Thankfully I finally got a hold of enough landowners to warrant a trip to the Fox Hills Formation and celebrate the spring weather. While most of the later sites I visited were a bust the first site of the morning was excellent and contained fauna not often found in the Fox Hills Formation in North Dakota. 3 new species for me in fact. This site represents a brackish transition area of the top of the Fox Hills Forma
  3. I've been posting Fox Hills Formation fossils from a recent trip but I feel that those are a poor representation of the often spectacular preservation and diversity of the Fox Hills Formation. Because of that I've decided to post some of my better Fox Hills specimens from North Dakota. We'll start with some lovely ammonites. Jeletzkytes nebrascensis is common throughout the Fox Hills Formation in the Timber Lake Member (perhaps a bit less so in North Dakota) and is a typical flagship species for the formation. This microconch from Emmons County is the largest complete J. nebrascens

    Fossil Hunting around Bismarck ND

    I have some relatives in Bismarck, North Dakota, and would like to know about fossil hunting opportunities in the surrounding area (preferably in a one hour radius of the city.) I already know about the Geological Survey digs, but would prefer hunting where you can keep what you find (or even just the common stuff.) Are there any pay to dig/ public access sites near Bismarck?

    Hell Creek Bird Bone?

    Another small Hell Creek bone found in North Dakota, this time it appears to be a the end of a limb from what I believe may be a bird, small non-avian theropod or perhaps even pterosaur. It has very thin walls which is what made me think that way and I would appreciate any input from my fellow members. The bone is about 1 cm in length and 6 mm at it's widest point at the bulbous base.

    Hell Creek Small Digit

    I found this tiny, slender bone at a Hell Creek microsite during my trip to the Dakotas in 2019 with PaleoProspectors. I'm not sure what it came from, but I'm hoping it's theropod, avian or otherwise. It's missing a section of the outer layer of bone and I believe the interior is hollow & filled in with the ironstone common in the formation. The dimensions are 1.7 cm in length and about 3 mm in width. I would appreciate any feedback you may have. In situ shot from the site: The closeup shots did not come out exactly how I wanted them lighting and detail wise. If you would l

    Another Tiny Hell Creek Toe

    Another tiny toe found in a North Dakota Hell Creek microsite, this little digit is 1 cm in length and about 5 mm in width. I know it's difficult to identify isolated digits but I was hoping we could potentially narrow it down to a general ID, turtle, croc, champ or other.

    I don't know what this is

    I could use some assistance on this rock found on the shore of Missouri river in north dakota.
  9. Paleocene plants in Central North Dakota are among the first fossils I've collected. Despite this I haven't given them the attention they are due lately. The preservation is very nice but due to various reasons they've taken a back seat to other outcrops in the state like the Cretaceous ones and I haven't thought about them for awhile. I am now reorganizing some of my Paleocene collection and a spark was reignited in me. I've decided to post some of the best examples here as a result. Come spring hopefully I can collect in additional Fort Union sites. The terrestrial Paleocene depo

    North Dakota Pierre Shale Trip

    I have an ambivalent relationship with the Pierre Shale. I try and try to find good sites that produce fossils but the end result is usually a fossil-less site. For a long time I quit trying exposures of Pierre Shale even though it's the closest fossil bearing exposure to where I live. About a year ago I decided to try the Pierre Shale again because it was close and I was too tired to go elsewhere, like the Fox Hills Formation in Central ND. Mostly I found worn Inoceramus fragments but to my surprise I found a nicely preserved caudal vertebrae from a mosasaur among float material. Following th
  11. Hi everyone, I haven't posted an ID in a while as I'm at college and don't have ready access to my fossils to take pics. However tonight, through sheer coincidence, I noticed a recognizable fossil online after looking at the new discovery of an albanerpetonid amphibian preserved in amber. After checking if these amphibians had been found in the Hell Creek I see an image come up of a jaw identified as belonging to scapherpeton (a true salamander) and recognized some features similar to a specimen of my own which I had never posted. I found this small jaw section in the Hell Creek fm. of North D
  12. I was very happy to see that recent publication that finally described the youngest known alvarezsurid Trierarchuncus prairiensis from the Hell Creek Formation. Material is rare but is most commonly overlooked and described as Croc or unknown theropod so knowing what to look for helps. I'm constantly on the lookout for this material and have been for years and have been fortunate to either find it or be able to acquire it over time. I used publications of other Alvarezsauridae like the Asian Mononykus and Canadian Albertonykus to help in the identification of my specimens.

    buffalo teeth

    I came across these in central North Dakota while looking for Teredo wood I assume they are modern buffalo teeth, but when I took a blowtorch to the root, it didn't have much of a burn smell. some of the small bits of root eventually blackened. This isn't so much an identification problem as a question- but confirmation of buffalo is fine, and if I am wrong, correction to the correct animal is welcome. Question: in the process of "fossilization", as collagen or whatever is replaced by minerals, how can you age a specimen, modern vs 'fossil' vs partially 'f
  14. Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've posted something to have ID'd so I thought I would take a few pictures of the oddities in my collection and post them on here. I'd like to know people's opinions on this piece of bone I found in the Hell Creek formation of North Dakota which looks like it may have holes in it made by bone boring invertebrates. Here they are!

    What Kind of Premax?

    I found this theropod premaxillary tooth on my last day in North Dakota this past summer and since then I've wondered about what it is and if it had and diagnostic features of an particular theropod group. It's just over a centimeter long and has no serrations.

    Struthiomimus Vertebrae

    Hi all, these two fossils were found in North Dakota's Hell Creek fm. this past summer. I believe they are vertebrae from ornithomimosaurs but I'm not certain. I'd like the input of my peers on the forum. The first one seems like it would be from a juvenile as it's mostly complete but very small at just under an inch long. The other is missing an end, but is a bit larger at about an inch and a quarter in length. First: Second:

    Hell Creek Fish (?) Jaw Section

    Hey everyone, I found this little jaw section at a microsite in North Dakota's Hell Creek formation this past summer and I'm finally getting around to posting about it. I believe it's fish, possibly gar, but I'm not sure. I'd like to know people's opinions. It's about 1.3 centimeters long. Thanks, Noel

    Dire Wolf?

    Here is another one of my impulse purchases. Loved the look and OK price. But, is it really a Dire Wolf partial skull. Information only said "found in North Dakota by father 15 years ago". Seller didn't have a fossil knowledge. Help!
  19. Very cool article on a Hell Creek Fm bonebed in Bowman, North Dakota A meteor impact 66 million years ago generated a tsunami-like wave in an inland sea that killed and buried fish, mammals, insects and a dinosaur, the first victims of Earth’s last mass extinction event. The death scene from within an hour of the impact has been excavated at an unprecedented fossil site in North Dakota.

  20. Hi everyone, I missed the updates for the last three days so here they are. I spent the last 3 days of the week fossil hunting the Hell Creek badlands of North Dakota- In those 3 days I found some of the best fossils in my collection so far. Wednesday was somewhat overcast which kept the exposures from being too hot. I spent the morning working a microsite with a few other people. My best finds here included a nice quality croc tooth, a likely bird bone and a bowfin jaw. Unfortunately the finds started to fizzle out after about an hour. The rest of the day was spent prospecting a wi

    Petrified Wood

    Mystery item found in western ND

    Hi everyone, I came across this object earlier this evening and I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what it is. It was found embedded in a soft rock (soft enough to scrape away large chunks with a pocket knife) with just a small cross-section exposed. It first grabbed my attention because it appears round and hollow in cross-section, and was a different color and harder than the surrounding material. The rock it was found in was at the top of a hill, and located in western North Dakota, just barely across the border from Montana. My friend and I tried to brainstorm what it

    North Dakota fossils?

    Hello, I will be going to visit kin up in Ottertail county Minnesota over the 4th of July week. We are coming up from Florida, and have some relatives towards Ashley/Napoleon as well as in Minnesota Despite visiting MN/ND repeatedly throughout my life, I know almost nothing about fossil hunting possibilities, aside from the famous Badlands finds...my focus has always been on fishing and such, but my 5 year old is high on fossiling (and has quite a collection from Florida already) We are flying in from Florida to the Cities and driving out west.
