    Texas Fossils - Antler? Spike?

    Here's another thing I found here in Southeast Texas on the ColoradoRiver...I'm wondering if it's an antler or a spike? It's solid as a rock...it has edges and appears to have a single distinct layer line.

    Texas chunk of bone?

    I'm not sure if this is a chunk of bone or wood...it has an almost sharp edge to it...and on one end of the specimen there are holes on the edge while the other side doesn't have them. There's also some intentions on the top outer edge of one side. I know it just a chunk of "something" but does that hard edge come from anything y'all recognize?

    Unusual Rock?

    I found this on a gravel bank here in Southeast Texas on the Colorado River...I didn't want to leave it because I thought it was pretty unusual. Well, for me anyway....I don't know much about rocks...but in all my years I haven't seen anything like this. It's probably common as can be and easily identifiable to the rock guys...but I thought it was cool as heck on account of the amber colored porous section on top, swirl pattern in the middle and the greenish blue bottom. Different colors, distinct layers. Oh, And I spend alot of time looking at the rocks trying to find fossils so this did sta

    Deer awl "dagger?"

    So earlier today I went down to my usual small area to check out a gravel bank since the river level had dropped, and I found this in the mud and sand where the water receded. At first I thought it was a piece of rusted metal when I picked it up and then I realized it was a bone...an ulna. Having served in the Army and Marines I immediately grabbed it as it had a handle and thought to myself that this looks like a weapon...a dagger...not knowing anything about it. And also thinking it could still easily function as a weapon even with the river wear it has...it's still very capable of puncturin

    Texas - Flaky Humerus from?

    I found this nice little bone today on a gravel bank of the Colorado River here in SE Texas. I think it's part of a humerus and even though it has some missing pieces and some wear I am thinking it belongs to a bison. Also this is the second piece I've found where it feels heavily mineralized but yet it flakes like a biscuit.

    Texas - Skull base?

    Found this bone fragment today in SE Texas on a gravel bank of the Colorado River. Not sure what it's from...I was thinking it might be the base of a mammal skull...not sure of the scientific name for it. Has a small bit of matrix on it. Any thoughts? Sorry I haven't had a chance to clean it. And are there teeth marks on it? These closeup marks seem unusual.

    Coprolite or something else?

    So this has been staring at me on the shelf for sometime waiting for an ID. Jokes aside...I found this on a SE Texas gravel bank...thought it was real peculiar looking...seemed to me to look like a coprolite...it has an unusual shape to it with markings all around...and if it isn't...what could it be much less the rectangular piece in the photographs? I thought maybe the small piece was bone or something. And the whole thing is solid as a rock and heavy. Sorry the pics are so close...wanted to get the details.

    Texas - Fossilized Bison Hoof?

    Lucky me the river level is dropping after a small increase but it was enough for me to hit the usual spot and find a few things today. Found this very solid specimen that after searching online I believe it might be a bison 3rd phalanx or a hoof core? I almost passed it by because I thought it was a rock...it's definitely fossilized. It's the first one of these I've found so I thought it was pretty cool. Probably an overkill on photos but I wanted to get the best photos I could of it. Found in SE Texas on a gravel bank of the Colorado River.

    Texas - small tooth

    I found this little tooth...or at least part of a tooth and I can't figure it out. It's 1 cm wide...I'm assuming it's the chewing surface of a larger piece...but to what? Thanks for any help with this ID. SE Texas - Colorado River.

    Texas - Raccoon femur?

    Is this little guy a raccoon femur? It's about 12 cm long...found it in the sand on a Colorado River bank here in SE Texas. Looking online it seems to fit.

    Colorado River Antelope Tooth?

    Found this little artiodactyl tooth on one of my trips to the Colorado River near Wharton, Texas about a month ago and have had some trouble getting a concrete ID. Any teeth other than bison or horse are basically impossible to find in the Brazos and so I'm way out of my depth with this one. I'm assuming it's too small to be camelid and the pictures I've seen that most closely resemble it are of antilocaprid teeth. This one must be an m3, the third lobe is just broken off (which you can see pretty clearly in the third and the fifth pictures). The occlusal surface is 1.5 cm across but obviously
