    Possible sloth maxilla?

    I found this in a SE Texas river just over a week ago. It is 16cm, 6.5 inches left to right. It looks to me like a partial maxilla with the cheek process on the left side of the photo. The "tooth" just above the center of the photo would have been 1.6 inches wide. Any thoughts? @JohnJ @garyc @Shellseeker @Harry Pristis @Lorne Ledger

    Britton Formation: Site 1000

    During summer drought months I often scout for new sites, and this summer was no different. I run all over the state for variety, and North Texas attracts a bit of my attention. It can be fun retracing old sites by accessing old papers, but I get my kicks by developing my own hunches, then executing successful prospecting trips. This site took me 2 long distance trips to pull together; one to scout and one to hunt. New sites come at a cost, but in terms of lifestyle, the cost is well worth it. Let’s cut straight to the action. A few lone Sciponoceras gracile ammonites showed t

    Septarian nodule?

    I visited a new creek in Hill County Tuesday. This is an Eagle Ford area. As often happens with a new site, I didn't find any of the fossils I was hoping for, and won't likely go back to this creek. I did find this strange looking piece, though. I'm thinking it has to be a septarian nodule, though it looks completely unlike any septarian nodules I've found or seen online. Am I identifying this correctly? Here are three views of it. The morning shadows are a bit harsh, and I probably should have found a more contrasting background than my driveway in the last two photos, but here it is, in all
  4. I made a trip to a creek in East Texas today and brought home a nice collection of very small teeth. It was the first time I've ever had success finding fossils less than an hour drive from home, and I was pretty pleased about that. This was a Kincaid Formation outcrop. The teeth came from a shell hash that was on top of some very hard limestone. Some of the matrix which contained the teeth was the same gray as the limestone, and some of it was a tan color. I looked at a lot of identical looking matrix which had nothing but shell fragments in it, but once I found teeth, there were
  5. I was out goofing around in the Texas Pleistocene recently and bumped into this Paramylodon claw. The tip was missing, but still a rare find. Rare enough to warrant an attempt at restoration, although I don't have much experience in creating faux bone.
  6. Tuesday morning, I made a trip back to the Ellis County creek where I've found so many teeth. I had been making a short hike across the pastures of two land owners to get to this creek, but the last time I asked permission, one of the land owners refused me, saying he had made a deal to give exclusive rights to another fossil hunting family. I can still get to the creek, but now it's a very long hike for me. So, I waited until the hottest part of summer was gone to try that long hike. When I reached the small section of the creek where I'd been finding most of the teeth, this is wh

    North Texas Hurricane Vacation

    During hurricane Ida I left Louisiana and stayed in North Texas for a little while as a sort of fossil hunting vacation. I'm currently still in North Dakota as I wait for my power to come back in Louisiana but as a result I've had a little bit of time to start cataloging some of my finds. There's still a lot left to go through but I figured I should just post some trip photos and specimens now. Day 1: Day 1 was spent on the North Sulphur River. I stopped here once in 2015(?) on a trip but I got to spend much more time here this time. A familiar view to many.

    Fresh Ammonite Fossil

    We actually found this about 1.5 years ago, just before moving to Florida. (Moved here a year ago). My son got it while he was at my parent's house in the outskirts of east DFW (we lived in north DFW, they lived in east DFW - we both relocated to FL). Their area was well known for dinosaur bones and the likes, which is super crazy lol!! Common to dig them up in yards while doing fences and whatnot. Anyway - my stepdad took my son to the cul-de-sac (2 houses down), one day where they were starting to build more houses. Kiddo wanted to check out the dirt & rock piles... He ended findi
  9. I grew up in Austin, going to Shoal Creek and Barton Creek and my local backyard creek, picking up the odd fossil or rock and stashing it away. It has only been recently (within the last 8 years) that I really got interested in Paleontology and finding out about the formations and proper fossil names etc....so it's been fun to revisit a lot of the places I went as a kid and see them in a whole new light. When the Paleontological Society of Austin used to hold meetings in person, I'd go up to Austin early and go fossil hunting in Shoal Creek - it has easy access and is a hop skip and a jump fr
  10. I did some exploring by an area of Shoal Creek (Austin, Texas) that experienced a large landslide recently. I first tried Bouldin Creek but I stumbled onto a group of free-range city dwellers bathing in the creek. It was a bit awkward so I just left. The location I found on Shoal Creek experienced a large landslide resulting in exposed rocks. The area seems to be a natural drainage area so the rocks were moist and soft. It was cool to see the various shells eroding out of the soft rock of the landslide. My best find was a few beer cans from the 80's, a slab with some in
  11. Does anyone have Collector's Guide to Texas Cretaceous Echinoids by William Morgan? I'm guessing it is a lot less dated than the old HGMS one and was thinking about picking up a copy so I was curious what those who have read it think of it. I also welcome any other good recommendations for Cretaceous echinoid references. Until my power returns in Louisiana I'm going to be collecting in North Texas and I've already come across some nice (to me) echinoids so I'm in need of reference material.

    Large foot bone

    I’ve browsed the extensive photo gallery of @Harry Pristis but had no luck finding a similar bone. I found this on the Brazos River in SE Texas. I’m thinking it’s a carpal from either a proboscidean or eremetherium. Anyone seen this or have an opinion? @fossilus @Uncle Siphuncle @Shellseeker @Lorne Ledger Thanks!

    Possible coprolite?

    I've started finding these on my East Texas property recently. Pictures of two different rocks are attached. One of the forms in the rocks is crystallized. Picked up off the ground where there's iron ore and hematite. Your feedback is appreciated.

    Eagle Ford Outings

    As a generalist, sometimes I like to scratch around in the Eagle Ford Group at various points along the Balcones Fault Zone from the Red River down through DFW, Waco, Austin, San Antonio and out into west Texas. Sites come and go, and wax and wane in productivity. Every now and then I find a new, untapped resource. Some are ephemeral, some have been around for a while, but what they all have in common is that they each seem worth 1 guy’s while at most 1-3 times per year, so I tend to keep strategically silent regarding provenance. I am at liberty, however, to share a few sp

    Tylocidaris sp. echinoid

    This is an undescribed, new species of Tylocidaris found in the Lower Cretaceous Georgetown Formation of Williamson County, Texas. Discovered on April 12, 2009 by John Jackson.
  16. I brought home a bag of microfossil matrix from NSR a few months ago and finally got to look through it. I am used to the microfossil matrix from Post Oak Creek and it is much easier. I just strain it and wash it off and its ready to go however the North Sulphur River matrix required days of soaking and washing before it was ready to look through. It was still fun. There were two pretty large teeth here but surprisingly not the abundance of micro teeth I find at POC. See the finds below: Can you see anything? How about now?

    Sloth tooth?

    Hello all! The Brazos has finally started coming down and I was able to get out for a short trip today. I think this is a sloth tooth, but I’m looking for confirmation from the experts. The picture of a paramylodon mandible I’m comparing to is from Kocsis’ Vertebrate Fossils: A Neophyte’s Guide. @Harry Pristis @fossilus @Lorne Ledger
  19. I went out to brave the Texas summer heat and was well rewarded. Post Oak Creek is so heavily picked, especially in the summer, that I didn't expect much. I even went there with the Dallas Paleontological Society last month and saw a ton of footprints then and not many good teeth. The first three hours I found almost nothing, as I expected the surface was all picked over, however I found one gravel bar that people must not have gotten to because I started finding a few decent cretodus, squalicorax, goblin shark teeth, and a couple of nice ptychodus. Finally I found two huge teeth about a foot
  20. I got some more Aguja formation matrix from Brewster County Texas. And happily, I found my First Dinosaur Tooth!! Plus some other really nice little things! Dromeosaur tooth 6mm Some Croc teeth and a bit of scute: A little bone 6mm My first Lissodus tooth: An Onchopristis shark tooth 4mm One of my favorite finds: Paralbula fish tooth 3mm A nice little shark denticle 2mm And not sure what this is...maybe a scute?

    North Sulphur Bones ID

    Among the fossils I collected at the North Sulphur River this past week there were a couple bones that stood out. One appears to be a decent chunk of rib. I figured there might just be enough for someone more familiar to identify so I decided to post it. The second bone stands out because of the directions of the bone grain. Hypurals, scapulas, and others have this multi-directional grain so I don't hold out much hope for this one to move beyond chunkosaur. I figured I'd post it anyway on the slight chance someone might have an idea because it's the North Sulphur.
