    Vernal road trip

    This is probably going to be a long post, so I hope you're bored! This is an area I have wanted to visit since I was a little kid and first wanted to be a Paleontologist. Unfortunately, this area was a long way from my family's normal vacationing route so I never made it. One of my other past-times is running. I got into running half marathons and then decided I wanted to run one in every state. I was supposed to come last year, but, well, covid sucked the fun out of everything. Anyway, Vernal Utah (known as dinosaurland and home to the Dinosaur National Monument) hosts an annu

    Trilobite ID Help

    Hi everyone, I have some trilobites I need help with identification on. I acquired these several years ago, so I am not entirely sure where these trilobites were found and can only suspect. The first is a trilobite that I believe is from Morocco. It is around 6 cm in length and 3 cm in width. The other two are Agnostid trilobites that I believe are from Utah. I was wondering if it was possible to limit each down to a genus. The darker one is 6 mm in length with a thorax around 3 mm wide. The lighter one is 7 mm in length with a thorax around 3.5 mm wide.
  4. Hi all... I would like to invite everyone to the third in a series of paleo lectures on Cretaceous dinosaurs sponsored by the Tate Geological Museum (Casper, Wyoming). Tuesday evening at 7PM, Mountain time. Jim is a charismatic speaker and will share some great discoveries being made in Utah these days. The Tate Museum's last lecture for the season is next week.

    Elrathia kingii?

    I recently purchased a 40lb box of shale from U-Dig Fossils in Utah. Mid-Cambrian, Wheeler Shale Formation, House Range, Millard County, Utah. This morning after work, I split a smallish piece & one side had an odd dent, the other had an indistinct, slightly raised shape that sort of looked like a trilobite, so I started trying to find out if it was. This was the result. Using dental picks, a needle in a small pin vice, a # 428 Dremel wire brush (by hand) & another small, round nylon brush (Dremel) in another pic vice... and lots of patience. I think it's most of an Elrathia Kingii min

    Caramel colored petrified "wood".

    I recently found this fossilized example on the surface of the desert in east central Utah, Emery county, on the road to chimney rock. The caramel color isn't typical of the petrified wood that I've found before and I'm wondering if this might be another plant such as a palm, fern, cycad, or something else. Growth rings are present but are not particularly strong. The "sap" inside appears to have turned into a different type of mineral. The light green highlights on the surface are lichens and are not part of the stone. Any ideas as to what type of plant this is? Thanks.
  9. Is this a skull of a baby raptor or is it just a rock? I just want to be sure before i take next step.
  10. I see on the web many deferent looking specimens being sold as Dino Coprolites. From what I’ve read on the web, most of these specimens are thought to be purely geologic. I was able to purchase 14 slabs labeled as Dino Coprolites from Utah for a very reasonable price so I bought them to see what I could see under a microscope. Chemical analysis and analysis of thin sections are much better ways to approach this. The individual pictures of the below 5 slabs (one is an end cut) were taken with the pieces wet and the close-up pictures taken with my microscope were taken with the pieces dry.

    Elrathia?

    Hey all, I bought this trilobite from a seller today and was wondering if anyone could help me ID it. I'm pretty sure its from Utah, and I think it's an Elrathia, but I just want to get some other thoughts or opinions. In the bottom left there seems to be part of an agnostid, but I could be wrong. The seller said that they didn't know where it came from unfortunately.
  12. Today is my 50th birthday so I wanted to select my fifty favorite fossil finds to present. But....because I am obsessive, I couldn't settle on just 50. So here's 150. My favorite 150 fossil finds. And there's still more - but then it would be 250 or 555...I don't know. Anyways, enjoy. Mostly Texas, some from Utah, Florida, North Carolina, New York and England (denoted by the state initials or UK). Almost all were found by me, except about 4 which were gifted to me. I did actually narrow it down to 50...initially. But then I had to do pages for the

    UTAH trilobite?

    Hello All, I wonder if this trilobite is the common kingii, or is it another species? I believe it must be a trilobite from Utah, but my knowledge is still small. Thank you for taking a look!

    fossil ID requests

    Hello, First time ever posting here and I am looking for some fossil ID's for the three attached fossils. The first one below is 70x65x10mm; middle is 100x90x60mm, and the bottom is 100x90x40mm. Unfortunately, I can't say much about location. These come from a relative who passed away who had a degree in earth science, and got that degree in 1960. He did a lot of traveling and collecting of fossils in the western USA, although he was raised and went to college in western PA USA. Not sure how useful that is, but that's all I have. Thank you in advance for any help!
  18. Taking a break from my many projects to do a bit of planning/research for my 2021 Utah excursion, putting together my "preop brief" Kept stumbling on references to Bathyocos housensis. Its a "new" genus and the species description only has very nice stereo images of the cranidium. Looks like all the paratype specimens are also just glabella-centric cranidia as per SUNDBERG, F.A. 1994.

  19. Here is a good website that gives the gps coordinates for several fossil sites near Moab, Utah. https://www.discovermoab.com/dinosaur-museums-and-hikes/ Nearby south of Moab is the newly discovered mysterious 12 foot tall metal monolith, sort of like the one in Planet of the Apes. 38°20′35.2″N 109°39′58.5″W See video still from David Sparks Instagram page. If no one claims it then maybe they should take it to a local museum.
  20. I was doing some research on the ordovician cruziana plates I found in Millard Co, Utah a few years ago and noticed something funny. It seems that similar looking specimens from around the world are frequently the same pink color. In my experience pink fossils are rare. But, it seems pink cruziana is not. Google the cruziana found at Penha Garcia park in Portugal for example. Any thoughts as to why? Here are some pictures of mine.

    Unknown Utah Trilobite

    This trilobite pygidium was found in a talus slope at base of Fossil Mountain in Western Utah. As you can see it is quite weathered. I found it about 25 years ago when my mom and I went back country driving in my Ford Tempo lol. That car went into a number of not car friendly areas haha. From what I know of area geology I believe it would be Ordovician in age
  22. Hello! First of all, I am not a geologist. This isn't my field of work. I am hoping somebody here can help me with this! Today I drove a few miles southeast of St George UT and into AZ. This place is amazing. Fossils everywhere. Just incredible stuff. Was out looking for crystals and whatnot... And unearthed these... Looking to what it is, a guess maybe on how old, and HOPEFULLY an explanation of what the small "hair looking" matter is. It looks like a root, and hair, I actually have no idea but this thing was entirely underground and inside this chunk of material tha
  23. Hey everyone, I’ve been meaning to get this post up for a few days but I’ve been dealing with my poor cat inky (Sweetheart of a cat) who is on her final day of life today. I will have to put her down November 1st. Very sad time as she’s been my companion the last 13 years. I’m sure many can relate. I’ll try to keep the chatter short and just get up as many photos I can for you kind people on the forum to enjoy. I just got back recently from an amazing trip to Utah and Nevada (Oct/11/2020-Oct/18/2020) Where I was camping in the field and trilobite collecting for 6 days s

    This is an isolated find, mixed in a gravel pediment perched above the Colorado River. So I cannot even guess what formation it was derived from. The first photo looks like the anchor to bedrock. The third photo is the top view.

    Triassic Bone - phytosaur?

    Probably from Petrified Forest member. Literature says phytosaur remains a common occurrence. Can anybody confirm what it is?
