  1. I recently took a trip to my hometown, San Antonio, Texas, to visit family whom I hadn't seen since before the pandemic. Ever since I caught the fossil bug last year in Maryland, I've been itching to make it back to Texas to explore. This trip's purpose was to catch up with family, but to do so, naturally, I had to catch them up on my new hobby! Two places were easy to add to my itinerary -- both my Mom and Dad have seasonal creeks in their neighborhoods, which I was able to walk. The creeks in my Mom's neighborhood expose Albian rocks from the Edwards Group.

    Texas fossil shell

    I'm visiting family in San Antonio, Texas, and have been doing a little fossil hunting as well, including in a nearby creek. Based on a local geologic map, I believe this creek mostly exposes the Edwards Group (Albian age), though there appear to be some younger (Cenomanian age) rocks from the Del Rio Formation mixed in as well, based on an Ilymatogyra arietina shell that I found a couple of days ago. This creek isn't very fossiliferous. In about 3 hours of searching, I've only found a single I. arietina and a few small shell impressions in rocks. However, today, I also found the rock below an

  5. Howdy. I found this gastropod in Comal County, Upper Glen Rose formation, and I'm drawing a blank. I'm unable to find any sources that show or describe a species with this ribbed morphology. Any help is greatly appreciated!
  6. Mrs PreK Teacher

    Help out a teacher!

    I found hundreds of these in San Antonio and would like to have a few interesting facts for my 5 year old students. My best guess from pictures online was they are exogyra? And they are from the Cretaceous period? I also do not want to give them the wrong information. Can anyone help? The pictures I am sending are all of just one fossil.

    Does anyone know what this is found in backyard VID_20210410_094153213.mp4 16180656678183378705414437170539.jpg
  8. Just had some recent rain in San Antonio so I decided to go out to a tried and true location. North of San Antonio on 281, there are multiple road cuts where interesting things can be found! Since I joined the forum, I have been amazed at the photos that people take, while the fossils are still in the matrix. I am normally so excited, I forget the documentation. Not this time! I found a few Salenia texana (sea urchins) and a Heteraster texanus (heart urchin). Some before and after pictures have been added.

    Pecan gap shark teeth

    A couple hours searching a new to me exposure of pecan gap chalk turned up some pretty nice stuff. First a couple of shark teeth, I don't know the identification. Actually this one might be a fish tooth: I love the color on this one. Also got a lot of fish scales and a small fish vertebra. Vertebra: Scales: A good sized ammonite. And a UFO. An unidentified fossilized object, if
  10. Hey they’re all. Once again thank you so much for helping me to ID the fossils that I find. If anybody can help with this one it would be greatly appreciated, for my nephew and I are trying to figure it out. Thank you. We found it inside the loop of 410 in San Antonio, in a dried up creek bed.
  11. Kristat2

    please help ID

    Found this in the outskirts of San Antonio Texas where The city cut into a hill for a road. Looks like it has a few bite marks. Any help to ID this would be much appreciated.
  12. Hello all I found this here in San Antonio Texas (29.5089535, – 98.4185643) Near salado creek it’s measures out to 2” x 1 3/4” x 1 1/4” can’t figure out what it is Any help would be much appreciated thank you very kindly

    My daughter and I went looking specifically for one of the beautiful and highly detailed echinoids that can be found near(ish) our area. We found this beauty north of San Antonio, Texas near Canyon Lake, Texas. We felt really fortunate to find one whole Leptosalinia Texana (I'm pretty sure about the identification but not 100% and will check soon, I promise!) and one half of another one. We found a few other interesting things but they will need to be cleaned up a bit before being photographed. This beauty is about one inch, or 2.5 cm, at its widest.
  14. Garage sale find in San Antonio, TX. 2 pieces, black circular shapes are slightly concave May or may not be from TX. Please help identify. Many thanks!
  15. I think the cylindrical ones are crinoids but not sure on the cones Garage sale find in NW San Antonio. May or may not be from San Antonio. One of the cones is broken in half (pictured) and the broken sides of some cones (also pictured) I noticed that the cones have a line going down from tip to the bottom (one pictured) Please help ID
  16. Hey yall, Im currently living on a ranch near Uvalde TX and I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this area. Looking to go out on trips with like minded folks to see what can be found in the surrounding are. To sweeten the deal the first trip would be to the ranch Im on were we have a pretty nice Acro trackway!

    Small tooth?

    I don’t know if it’s a tooth, but the shape is very familiar. Found in San Antonio TX, in what I think is the Corsicana formation. In an excavation close to 10 ft in heavy clay. Measures 1cmX1cm. Thickness is approximately 5mm.
  18. Hey Everyone - I hope someone can provide some insight and help me identify this fossil. I would really appreciate it! I found this strange looking tooth (at least I think it is) a few years ago in San Antonio, Texas. It feels and looks like a rock as far as texture goes but it's shaped very similar to an animal tooth. I've attached photos for reference and labeled each one: Front Back Side Front Height - 5 inches (12.7 centimeters) Front Width - 4.5 inches (11.43 centimeters) I've also attached a Geology Map of Texas which outli

    4 month round up

    I was gonna call this a monthly round up but I just realized it's been four months, adjusting to new job has had me messed up. I've only gone to 2 locales in 4 months and I'm having withdrawals. Anyway, I stopped at a outcrop of buda formation for about 30 minutes while the family went shopping, the buda had given me 2 graptocarcinus carapaces previously so I was looking specifically for that, I found what I thought was a carapace but it turned out to be a chela with just a nub of a dactyl, unfortunately the finger got broken off somewhere in between getting it out of the ground and getting it

    Odd Texas oyster

    I'll post a full story in trips when I get time, but I was searching around a new spot, being unsure of the formation (Austin I assume now) I was picking up everything I found including oysters which I would normally leave, I assume they're exogyra or ilymatogyra but the Mark on the back is strange to me, 2 of the three I picked up had them and I haven't seen anything like it in pictures. Species and out formation ID would be nice
  21. Creek was a little flooded today made it harder to navigate, started the day with 2 dead drill battery's that I had charged the night before so I decided to move father up to look at some different exposures, started by picking up some matrix for micro's from the bottom of the pecan gap, more on that later, and then some Del Rio clay for the same, (if someone has suggestions for how to wash this faster that would be great) spent the next 2 hours picking up heteromorph mariellas.

    Looking for help!

    Hey everyone! I'm new around here and found this place for some help. When I was doing field work I came across this guy and I can't seem to figure out what it is. Since I'm a geologist, I'll have a chance to talk to my old paleo professor but I wanted to ask everyone here first. I found it in the Charco, TX area on the shoreline of the San Antonio River. If anyone needs better images, I can do my best to add more. Thank you!!

    San Antonio Area

    I am going to San Antonio, TX for my Honeymoon in July. I am hoping maybe that are some public places I could explore in the area, or nearby for fossils, and interesting rocks. If you know of something please let me know here, or through messaging!

    ID - long claws, or wing?

    I have large stone with this image embedded (Fossil imprint?) among many I acquired to form paths in my gardens. As you can see, it looks like a "claw" - maybe with pad at bottom right of my foot - or it was suggested a "wing" portion? . . . I don't think it is an anomaly. As I do not know where exactly from where the stones came - here in the San Antonio, TX area most stones/rock came from quarries in the surrounding county. Any suggestions are welcome.
