    Eagle Ford mosasaur

    Last weekend was one I'll never forget... I've barely processed it, but now that I can be more coherent, here is the story of the mosasaur we found --------------------------------------------------------------------------- On September 11 & 12, I researched and found new fossil hunting area (to me), that exposed the Eagle Ford formation. I decided to scout it, and that scouting trip ended up being wildly successful. On the first weekend of

    Stones or Fossils?

    New at hunting so I have no idea what I have. Location: Nolan County Texas
  3. Yesterday was attempt number two at finding exposures of the Eagle Ford formation. My first attempt a month ago found me deep in the city of Austin, searching for the Bouldin Flags member of the Eagle Ford. I had to move upstream to avoid a large homeless camp, and found myself on the Austin chalk instead, where I found a large piece of a Parapuzosia sp. ammonite ( that trip is below) While definitely a memorable hunt, with a cool fossil to show for it, it was technically still a mission failed - the Eagle Ford still eluded me. So yesterday, i decided to try again, this ti

  5. Today was a memorable outing, and our net results were the best I've ever had for a single day in Austin. This morning started quickly. My step brother, Christian, was already knocking on my door at 9:30 - yes, that may be late in the morning for everyone else, but it's a full hour before I'm usually fully awake. I guess that's the trade off for late nights! Yesterday we made plans to spend our day today hunting a spot that I was used to scouring but had not visited in a while. That was not the only motivation for choosing this particular spot th

  7. I've had quite the busy weekend..Saturday I returned from a two week trip to Ohio, and today I started the first day of the new semester. Due to the upcoming school schedule and two weeks without a hunt, I made sure that Sunday would be a day for a thorough, long hunt. One nice bit about being away for so long was that I had lots of time to think about new localities. There was about a three day stretch where I spent multiple hours of each day researching and investigating. I've been juggling my focus between Cretaceous to Pleistocene stuff, and after a while I settled on a po

    Pleistocene carnivore tooth

    Hey ya'll I found what I suspect to be a mammalian carnivore (or omnivore) tooth today - it's fossilized, so it ought to be from the Pleistocene, but I found it while hunting cretaceous fossils in Austin (central texas). It's still embedded in the jaw bone. Based on a few brief images from google, I have an outlandish suspicion of what it might be - but I'll leave the actual ID to you guys

  13. Spent some time yesterday driving around Fort Hood military base area. I didn't go inside the main base, but there were plenty of public roads and lands next to the base that were not fenced in or restricted. I managed to find few spots that were exposed to the erosion. Most fossils were bivalves, gastropod and lots of broken oxytropidoceras ammos. Due to nature of the preservation most Oxy's were broken. West Fort Hood in the background. Road leading to Fort Hood gate. Exposed Walnut Formation surface. Grypha

  15. One of the wonderful things about this hobby is that the adventures are always surprising, and this weekend proved that yet again. ...................................................... A few days ago, I decided that it's time to branch out around austin a bit. Over the past few months, I've discovered a few "safe spots", where I know I can usually find somethi
  16. This post is not so much about a single trip, but more to showcase this summer's hunting, with some details or stories with some of the posts. Historically, for me at least, the Austin area is one heck of a locale to scour.There are some incredible, charismatic, interesting fossils around, but man, looking for them can beat you down at times. I am pleased to say at least, that I think I've finally clicked for the area though. I can find something of interest practically every time I go now. But enough rambling, here are (some) of my favorite finds as of late: 1.) First t
  17. I collected this fossil many years ago as a kid, from a very rocky creek bed in Gorman, Texas. North Central Texas. No idea as to the geological age of the area. The "scales" have a slightly curved face that rises from the center to the sides, but not front and back. They also seem to be leaned on top of another similar to how normal scales are, all pointing the same direction. Almost looks as though the back side of the specimen has bone fragments visible? To my untrained eye, this what I assumed. From my own research, so far I assume it could be from a fish

    Austin area bone

    Hey y'all Here's a bone fragment that I think might actually be identifiable from a creek around the austin area. Ozan formation. My thought is it may be fish, but I can only really base that on size. I found some other pieces after the storm recently as well, but all the others are probably just "chunkasaurus". thanks for any input, I'd really appreciate it
  21. Recently, I was introduced by some friends of mine to full fledged rock climbing, and I was hooked. One session on a big cliff near Austin was all it took. As many of you know, rock climbing shoes are excessively tight, and I decided that it would be best to try and break in my new shoes on some small, crumbly limestone cliffs next to the track of the elementary school I went to. I was scouting out which portions of the cliff would be manageable when I noticed by my feet an otherwise inconspicuous rock with two or three dimples on one end. Fossils hadn't really been on
  22. Went out to the Central Texas Coryell County and looked for some Early Cretaceous fossils. I recognize most of these fossils like Exogyra Texana, Gastropods, and clams I found before, but I can't seem to ID one long elongated bivalve that looks a modern razor clams.
  23. I own some property in Blanco County, Texas and there are many fossils and fossil imprints embedded in the rock along the creek that runs through the property. I would love to know what these fossils are. I am posting just 2 pics because of size restrictions. I know nothing about fossils but am fascinated by the ones I have found. Any help would be appreciated.
  24. Today was supposed to be a day of grinding away at my piles of homework that have been accumulating over the course of last week (hey, I was on vacation what can I say)...and I was almost successful, save until 3 pm rolled around. Getting a little stir crazy, and in desperate need of the fossil hunting fix that I missed out on over the course of my week long vacation + the week of snow we had prior, I set out to take a "small walk" to an area of a creek I hadn't scouted before. My intention was just to do a little bit of reconnaissance - I saw on a geologic map that this particular
  25. Hi all, I read on a discussion from 2018 that the Waco Pit was in danger of being closed to the public. Seeming that was over two years ago I'm curious to know if it's still open to collect from. Furthermore, if it is open, do I need a permit to go?
