From the album: SquamatesA small tooth from a small aquatic reptile that lived during the Turonian of North TX. They are small, squat teeth with textured enamel, and possess only an indistinct distal carina (no mesial carina).
I am right now out in the field, attempting to extract a string of articulated reptile vertebrae in the lower Atco. It is in a soft marl bed just a few feet above the basal Atco. There seems to be articulated ribs associated with the specimen, and so far I have uncovered 14 verts. 9 of them were lose of the surface and bagged in ziplocks, but now I am trying to get the rest out. If anyone has any advice, I need it! The specimen also has articulated ribs. I want to get this thing home tonight, and not destroyed. This is is my first time attempting to extract vertebrae, and I want to
LSCHNELLE posted a topic in Fossil IDWhat genus or species is this? Any ideas? I found this small jaw fragment (triangular form - first 5 pics) in the Lower South Bosque Member (Lower Turonian) of Eagle Ford Shale here in Travis County today. I see 7 spots for teeth of which all but one are significantly damaged or worn down. The size is 17mm x 20mm and 10mm tall including jaw. These are the best images I can get with my cell phone. I have found individual 5 to 7 mm tall teeth in this layer also that might fit in this jaw. Could it be a fish instead? Maybe Enchodus? I've also found a pycnodont (last three pics) fish jaw in th
I was responding to a post on TFF on FB about a vertebra someone had found at Post Oak Creek in Texas. I thought it was a snake vertebra since I have found several as I have hunted shark teeth there for several years. I went through my box of snake vertebra to take a picture to compare. As I pulled them out and lined them up, one vert did not line up at all and is clearly fossilized and is very similar to the one he posted that was identified as possibly being Coniasaur. Can anyone tell if that it truly what I have here or something else.
