  1. Given the success I had in the White River fm. the week before, my third and final outing of the summer was just icing on the cake to an already phenomenal fossil hunting session. But what I would come to find is that this figurative cake would be getting a massive dose of that sugary goodness, and man it felt sweet. This time around I would be joined by my best friend Michael (@Mickeyb06)who would be taking on his first ever fossil hunting adventure in Wyoming's Lance fm. While it wasn't my intention for this to be his first experience in the field, we made the most of it and it was gre
  2. Day 5 in South Dakota was a total bust for my son and me. The section of the quarry we worked has large ironstone and clay boulders, but also has large bones. We sat next to a jacketed femur and worked back the wall face. We didnt find more than a few small bits at the end of the day, but I said that something big was there. Big rocks = big bones. Sure enough, Walter sat down in our spot 3 days later and immediately uncovered a ceratopsian dentary! By this point were were already on to our next destination in Kemmerer, Wyoming. 3 days of splitting shale for fish, hoping for th
  3. What a trip my son and I had this year! We started out in the Hell Creek fm of South Dakota. This was a special trip through Paleo Adventures for his "veteran" guests who have already spent a few years with him and could operate without supervision. We started out hunting a new ranch. This property is virgin ground with LOTS of acreage that needed exploration. The group was split into 3 teams, each taking a different area. Our team was further split into pairs. So, it was my son and me, exploring for new outcrops. The sun was intense, the temperature hot, and hours of hiking and sta
  4. With a week of collecting under my belt I felt ready and excited to take on the next, this time exclusively on the White River formation. All factors being considered, the White River is probably the most difficult formation to hunt among those I've been lucky enough to explore thus far. For one, the terrain is often very rough, with all sorts of ridges, rises, washes and gullies to hike through. Another issue to account for is the reflection of light off of the white sediments, meaning that ample sunscreen is a necessity if you don't want to burn to a crisp. That harsh sunlight can lead to te
  5. I thought I'd try my hand with this Kemmerer Cockerellites liops this time around. This took me a looooong time because of the fine differences in shading, but I'm pretty happy with it. As you can see when compare to the original photo, I cheated a bit on it by filling in the missing parts of the fins.

    good times in the badlands

    Earlier this month @JD3B and I went a incredible fossil hunting road trip. The title may be a bit misleading, as only one day was actually spent in the badlands. There were however, plenty of good times. We were lucky to have the opportunity to visit a few storied formations, and even luckier to have a couple tff legends to guide us. The first morning was an early one with a 3:00 am wake up. I was at Jacob's (JD3B) by 4:00 and on the road before 5:00. First stop, the Helena, Montana area to visit the world renowned @RJB museum of natural history. We arrived late in the afternoon an

    Avisaurus tooth

    From the album: Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    I found this tooth while looking through matrix from a productive conglomerate site while at home. At first I had no clue what it could be, but the consensus on its ID thread was that likely belonged to Avisaurus. While its hard to conceptualize birds with teeth from our modern perspective, that was the norm for many genera in the Cretaceous. Glad to have found this one and recognize it as a tooth.

    Pectinodon tooth

    From the album: Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    Another shot of the Pectinodon tooth featured earlier in this album, this specimen was found by my dad and is one of two Troodontid teeth in my collection.

    Leptoceratops tooth

    From the album: Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    While far less famous than its horned and frilled relatives, Leptoceratops were interesting small herbivores in their own right, likely utilizing their deep set jaws as a deterrent for predators. So far this is the only tooth from this genus I've found so far.

    Bivalve

    From the album: Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    Most people think of dinosaurs when they hear Lance formation, but I've found that in many of its channel deposits, freshwater mollusks are incredibly common, like this bivalve.

    Coprolite

    From the album: Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    My first definitive coprolite from Wyoming, could belong to any assortment of animals so I won't slap a label on it to avoid being inaccurate.
  12. Hi everyone! Recently I bought this piece of blue petrified wood. In the process of cleaning, I have soak the whole piece in muriatic acid for about a day and half, and in water with baking soda for about 2 days to neutralize the acid. To my surprise the whole skin turn white and the dark blue part has turned much pale in color. I have attached a few photos below for your reference, please noted that when the whole piece is dry the white part is complete white and opaque, but when I added water, the white part became translucent. I am not sure if I have somehow damage i

    Lance Form. find, ceratopsian?

    Found this three years back in the Lance Formation. About 50 miles out of Newcastle, WY on a dig trip. Going through some bones I haven’t tried to ID. Any suggestions on this one? It has nice bone surface in a few spots, but isn’t familiar to me.
  14. Hi everyone, I'm hoping to be able to find out the identity of this tooth I found in the White River formation last summer. It has an odd triangular cross section and doesn't seem to match anything I've seen so far. I was wondering if it might be from the ancient peccary Perchoerus as I saw some similarities online when I was exploring that option. I would be interested in reading all of your opinions. The tooth is approx. 4 cm in length and 1 cm at its widest point. Photo from the field

    Micro Claw-Lance fm.

    Hi everyone! I came across this little piece as I was sorting through some of the anthill matrix I brought back from Wyoming's Lance formation. When I first found it, I must not have recognized it as a partial claw as it ended up alongside other odds and ends (fragments of bone, gar scales & other misc. fossils) at the bottom of a pill bottle where I had deposited all of my pickings. This week, however, I emptied that pill bottle to see what was inside in order to organize all the micros I found from this locality (which will get its own post eventually). It's evident to me that this is a

    Kemmerer, Wyoming trip 3

    Hi everyone, So, I’m going back to Kemmerer, Wyoming for the third time on August 12, 2021. My entire family will be going as well as two friends from Japan. I’m going, courtesy of fishdig.com. I know the two from Japan will have a great time. I’m sure I’ll have a good time also. I wonder what I’ll find this time. Last time, I found an awesome Mioplosus labracoides. Picture attached. Jared
  17. I'll be honest, I've put off writing this trip report for far too long. Between work, school and general procrastination I have delayed this post for over 7 months. Perhaps there's a silver lining to me writing this in the middle of winter, it could act as a nice break from the grey & cold conditions many of us are facing this season. Hopefully you all enjoy a dose of warmth from a trip which I enjoyed greatly. Ok ready? Let's go. My morning started around 4:30, ungodly hours for me generally, but I woke up excited for what lay ahead. Less than a half hour later we were on our w

    Parasaniwa Tooth

    Happy New Year everyone. Tonight I thought I might post a fossil whose identity I wanted to confirm. I found it in Wyoming's Lance formation this summer and someone told me it might be a Pachycephalosaur premaxillary tooth because of it's carinae and ridges at the base. However after comparing my tooth to examples I could find online I felt that this ID was incorrect. Eventually I looked back over one of @Troodon's threads and found a jaw labelled as parasaniwa and those teeth matched what I had found. My tooth is about 6 mm long and about 3 mm wide.

    Paleo Park Or Lance Creek Fossil Area?

    Hi Fossil Forum-I need your help I have read about a couple of fossil areas in WY- Paleo Park and Lance Creek Fossil Area. Has anyone heard of them or know more about what they offer? I was not able to find too much information on the internet. Any help would be apprciated. Thanks Eric

    Petrified wood?

    Hi all! Is this petrified wood? I found it while hiking in Jackson Hole, WY. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I’ve posted these pictures around Facebook but haven’t gotten very many responses. Thanks!
  21. Hello! I've been to the main digging site in the Blue Forest of Wyoming a couple of times but would like to try a couple of other sites there. Does anyone have the directions to the other digging areas? Thank you!

    dinosaur rib

    This has always bugged me. This is a dinosaur rib (presumably triceratops) from the Lance Creek formation of Wyoming. The surface is encrusted with irregular nodules and crepe paper texture. I'm wondering if it could be fossilized desiccated connective tissue. Has anyone encountered something similar?

    Gavialosuchus vert?

    Could this be a Gavialosuchus americanus vertebra? It measures 5cm, found in Wyoming...
  24. Hi Everyone! My family and I are going on a trip to North Colorado this August and I really want to collect and keep some dinosaur fossils while I'm there. Does anyone know of a program, charter, or guide who can help me? It doesn't have to be in Colorado, I'm close enough to Wyoming that that is also an option. I tried looking for something on my own and all I can find is either parks where collecting is forbidden or what is basically "pay us two grand to be our field slave for a week".
