    Is this chert?

    Found this in Lincoln County, Wy.

    Petrified Wood?

    Found this in Lincoln County, near La Barge, Wy. Is it petrified wood?
  3. I've been absent from here for quite a while, but plan on getting back on-board more. I'm currently working in Scottsbluff Nebraska and will probably be here for another couple of weeks. Is there any place withing a few hours of here I could do a little fossil hunting or look for interesting rocks. Any cool fossil museums in the area someone could recommend. As always I would keep any info private, and I would be happy to payback info for anyone passing through Kansas sometime. (Niobrara chalk photo from Kansas) Ramo

    Fish Fossil

    From the album: Miscellaneous Fossils

  5. Hello my friends! Recently bought this two fishes. I know they are real! But I have read before that there is a common practice to ink them, so many of these guys are usually inked! I'm pretty sure the faint one is practically clean from ink but can't be sure! Can you give some advice on how to identify inked areas? Thank you so much in advance! Macros tip if you are on a budget like me! If your smartphone has a macro option, you can use a small cheap macro lens over your built in macro lens, don't use your cellphone's flash but lit your desired object pretty well with one or two desk lamps. Not the best photos but they will show more details than using just the cheap lenses or the built in lenses!
  6. Some pix from my June 2024 trip to the great quarry near Kemmerer Wyoming. Tried to identify the fossils as best I could but happy to hear any amendments to these. Included a nice pic of a partial fish with a clear view of the scales. The alleged Priscacara is not the best fossil but it is BIG. Got lots more smaller stuff, but mostly partials as well.
  7. I wanted to check on 2 fossils IDs before I tried to label them. They are from Wyoming. From Lance formation. #1 (was thinking theropoda) (serrated part seems bigger on one side and smaller on other) #2 (other side) The next tooth was thinking to be croc tooth. #3(very little) #4(closer view) #5(different angle)
  8. 2024 June. Another short travel note. Went for a day of fossiling at the Kemmerer fish quarry that starts with an A. Great guys and got a lot of stuff though not many complete ones. Learned a few things too. My advice is to go EARLY. They put out blocks of material each morning and cordon off each days area, so you are stuck with whatever is available that day. if you get there at noon or later, much of it is already worked over. I nonetheless got some good stuff. Also, I was there with someone else who got some nice plates of fish. He cut them and left them on the cutting table and went off to rest. When he got back, someone had stolen them, so keep track of your stuff! I am going to put some pix on here when I get them together. Overall a great visit. I am also going to write up some advice for us air travelers who want to get their stuff home.

    footprint ID

    I was on a hike in the Cloverly Formation of eastern Wyoming and saw a footprint that has perplexed me. I snapped a photo of it, which may or may not be helpful, but I am no longer in the vicinity of the print so it is all I have to go on. The print looks like a cast in the photo, but it was actually true print. The Cloverly formation is dated to 115-108 million years old, through my research I have found a short list of dinos that walked the area, based on this information the only two that seem to work are Deinonychus antirrhopus, a raptor (which should only show two toes in the print, there are two clear toes and claws on the left and middle toe, the third is muddled but maybe not enough to be raptor) or Microvenator celer, an early oviraptor with very limited information on it. Didn't have a measuring device at the time, should have included an object for scale, but didn't, I do remember my hand fit nicely in the print, so I am guessing it was about 50cm long x 35 cm wide give or take a few cm. I realize it can be very hard to nail down a footprint, but any insights would be greatly appreciated. Always interested in learning about the world around me, past and present. Thanks

    Fossil Teeth

    I was wondering if any could help with the ID of 3 pieces from Wyoming (Lance creek Formation is what was told). They are very small and broken but maybe someone know of an ID or maybe even if its dinosaur or something different? #1 (first) #2 (closer) #3 (other side) #4 (different view) Second piece #5 (sorry piece was very hard to hold for photos) #6 (other angle) #7 (top) Third piece #8 (wasn't sure what was) #9 #10 #11

    Digging in the Lance Formation, South of Newcastle, Wyoming, ... and came across this fossil among other teeth from Trikes, Hadrosaurus, croc, and Nano. I've only been digging for a few years but have not come across this before. Is it a tooth or something else?
  12. Hello, I was scrolling throug some already sold pieces on our favourite online auction site and came across this monster of a Rex tooth. Now I wonder, why in the world does it look so weird ? Description said, that there were some restorations done on the tip and enamel, but it looks nearly completly fake to my eyes.... Sice : 3 inch Age : 70 mio. years Formation : Lance Creek formation, Weston County, Wyoming, USA @hadrosauridae, @ThePhysicist, @Phos_01
  13. I have often seen Edmontosaurus annectens teeth labelled as having come from the Lance Formation in Wyoming for sale online. It is my understanding that the Hell Creek and Lance Formations are very similar in many respects, and given their proximity to eachother it's no doubt quite easy for sellers to confuse or conflate the two, so I was wondering if there were any reliable means by which material from the Hell Creek and Lance Formation could be distinguished. Thanks in advance for any guidance Othniel

    Agate strange

    Strange rock split agate
  15. Howdy everyone, Figured I would give a quick update, obviously I am alive though came far closer to that being different than I would have liked. In late July 2021, I was driving back after a productive yet long summer of fieldwork, since mid-May. Had just finished a site map and got a decent head start on the annual report for the Bureau of Land Management. I should have spent another night in town instead of trying to start my drive home exhausted. Well, it is unclear if I was too tired to focus or if it was microsleep but here is a picture of the result: That was in Southwest Wyoming and emergency services were a long way off, for perspective, it took nearly 30 minutes for law enforcement to arrive. I had to cut my seatbelt, which had just saved me, with my pocketknife and fell to the ceiling of the truck. From there I crawled out the door window which was barely accessible. Of course, after pulling my cell phone out, I had no service. Managed to flag down a trucker sometime later and received help from there. Whiplash, 3 broken bones, twisted vertebrae, and several pinched nerves are the injuries I am still working through even these years later. Certainly doing better, my doctor does not want me to lift any objects over 30 pounds, 14 kg, but I was able to lift roughly 140 the other day so making good headway. Not quite back to my old self and will never be, I am though happy to still be here, it is one of more than a few close calls over the years. Fortunately, I can continue fieldwork, the duration I can do said fieldwork has been reduced but I know several in paleontology who can no longer do fieldwork after a crash. I have a few upcoming posts that I am working on writing and sorting out photos to include. Now that the hectic end-semester grading is over, I am making headway on research writing with fieldwork preparation and planning taking up a fair bit of my time. Excluding the crash and extra medical issues resulting, life has been busy yet enjoyable. E.P.

    Help with possible fossils

    These two fossils were sticking out of the mud with other similar shaped fossils within 10-15ft. Cant find anyone so far that can identify what we may have found. The large fossil is approximately 30 inches long. Waiting for the area to dry up again to go back and take more detailed pictures and measurements. Any help would be appreciated.
  17. Hello all- It is time again to announce to the masses another exciting Tate Conference. Happening June 7-9 at the Tate Museum in Casper, Wyoming, USA. We have 11 speakers plus a Keynote over dinner lined up to talk about the Morrison Fm and its beasts on Saturday the 8th, and a field trip to the local Jurassic rocks south of Casper on Friday and a second field trip to the historic Como Bluff on Sunday. More info can be found here: https://www.caspercollege.edu/tate-geological-museum/events/conference/ Hope to see a few Forum members in Casper for this. -jpc
  18. Hey y'all! I'll be staying in Salt Lake City for two and a half weeks from Mid May to the end of May. I was hoping to see if any of y'all knew of any private tours/quarries that would be open during that time. I'm looking for fossil fish and trilobites mostly, so if anyone knows of any trilobites aside from U-Dig that would be appreciated too. I recall going on a private digs when I was younger that was not affiliated with any of the big names (with permission from the landowner of course) - hoping to find something similar. Calling all people that "know a guy" - thanks!
  19. I bought this from a market for cheap. They said it was from Wyoming. Either way I think it's super cool, obviously more cool if it's real. Does it look real or fake?

    What is it?

    I found this a couple years ago on a ranch in north east Wyoming. It was sticking part way out of the ground and it looked like a fossil of some kind. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Theropod or Turtle Toe Bone?

    I found this fossil toe bone in the Lance Formation of Wyoming. Is it a theropod toe bone or a turtle toe bone? It seems hollow.
  22. I found this tooth on private property in the Lance Formation, and I wanted to know what y’all think. Dr. Bakker told me ceratopsian (Lepto if I remember correctly). He said it was one of the teeth oriented toward the front of the mouth. I’m inclined to believe him, but has anyone else seen this before?
