    Please share some wisdom

    Hello everyone. I am new to the site so please let me slide if this is incomplete. I found this fossil in a small Creek in the west part of Dallas county in Texas. This area is upper Cretaceous but this bone is in amazing condition in my opinion so maybe more recent?? It is currently in storage so these are the only pictures I have right now. Any info or suggestions would be awesome and appreciated
  2. Texas Paleontologic Papers Available Online as PDF files Various University of Texas Bulletins, which are available online as PDF files contain in the form of Contributions to Geology, papers about the fossils of Texas. For example, there is: University of Texas Bulletin 4401, Contributions to Geology, 1944 University of Texas Bulletin 4401 contains papers about graptolites from the Cambrian of the Llano Uplift; corals from the Carboniferous of the Llano Uplift; Foraminifera from the Upper Carboniferous; vertebrates from the Triass

    Fossil hunting legal question

    Hi all- I would think this has been answered but after searching I couldn't quite find an answer. I live in Dallas near White Rock Lake. There are a lot of creeks that branch off all through the Dallas area. I like to explore these on occasion (when I just want to get out on a Saturday) and for the most part I've been left alone (and had some success!). Does anyone have any "jurisdiction" over these creeks? I ask because I was exploring one that had houses on each side. OR actually their backyards that led to the house. Anyway, I was no where near someone's property (basically in the

    Found this need help please

    Found this in my neighborhood, I live in Dallas Texas USA. As far as geological history when I research the area it mentions most fossils found in Dallas Texas from the cretaceous period. It is small and looks like a piece of something but have no idea so now I’m here... any information would be helpful thanks. Length wise it’s 7.5 cm, width is 5.5 cm, and height is about 3 cm and the other is slanted so thing less than half of one cm.

    Jobsite Find

    Good afternoon to all. A colleague and I were doing some exploring in a creek bottom on our jobsite located in Fannin County, Texas. The creek we were walking in drains into the North Sulphur River. As we were walking we noticed a large bone sticking out of the creek bank. We decided to grab a couple of shovels and do a little more excavating. We came across multiple bones. As you may see in one of the pictures, we had to do a little digging in order to reach much of the bones, they definitely weren't just lying in the creek bank. I will upload more pictures with measurements. I ki

    Dinosaur tracks in Dallas, Texas?

    Howdy, all. Apologies for the lack of specificity; I'm an amateur fossil hunter and am not familiar with all the terms just yet. I was recently looking for inoceramus clams in the bed of White Rock Creek when I noticed some strange depressions in the limestone. They were roundish (some with a hint of a triangular shape), around two feet in diameter, and spaced in a pretty even pattern along the creekbed. The more I thought about it, the more they seemed to resemble the tracks found at the bottom of the river at Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose. My questions are: Is an

    Creek bed round thing?

    Found a curious circular thing on the bottom of the creek. It looks like a circular coral that I saw picture on the Internet once. Creek bed is around middle cretaceous period.
  8. I found these two in the Dallas area creeks today. It was washed down from upstream lying with other creek rocks. First one looks like coral and second one looks like rudists. I will let someone ID this for me since I'm new to marine fossils.

    Ammonite fossil or burrow ?

    I found this Ammonite few weeks ago. Looks like a burrow. If that is a burrow than I don't see want to waste my time and effort removing from surrounding rock. Too much work for trace fossil. Thanks

    Pleistocene mammal bone ID please

    Hello. I went down to local creek today and found some interesting mammal bones. These bones were found in 5 to 8 feet below the surface layer, but just above limestone gravel layer. I'm thinking this maybe some large animal, but does't think this is a cow bone since buried too deep.

    Exogyra found in DFW creek

    I know this is a Exogyra oyster, but part of the fossil has been broken off. On the end, it seems to show fossilized flesh? What is that long thing? Internal flesh?
  12. These are pretty small bits and pieces, perhaps not identifiable at all, but they were intriguing. I found them in Eagle Ford formation I believe in a creek in Grand Prairie TX. I found a small shark tooth in the same creek bed. It's probably too broken to ID. But perhaps the others are something interesting? The last two may be geologic. Thanks for any help!

    Large Shark Tooth Dallas, TX

    Well, "large" for what I have found around here anyway. Found in South Dallas, Texas. It was imbedded in a piece of Austin Chalk that rested right on top of the Eagle Ford Shale. I have found maybe 50ish shark teeth in the area but nothing even close to this size and preservation. I have never tried to identify any of the teeth, but this one intrigues me. Any ideas ?

    Post oak creek Texas

    After looking around at spots in dfw I had decided to check out post oak river on the west side of the service road I climbed down the embankment where I found a lot of shells like this one pictured no idea what exactly it is I’m very new to this and looking for info. I thought it might be a devils toe nail.
  15. I'm new to this forum, and would like to request help in identifying a fossil that has been in my possession for about 50 years. When I was a child growing up in Dallas, Texas, my father was a landscape architect who often visited job sites and had excellent relations with various sub-contractors. One day, he brought home a fossil "dinosaur bone" from a private residential swimming pool construction project. It certainly does appear to be a fossil bone from a large animal, and one can even see fossilized marrow in a hole on the specimen - but whether it's from a dinosaur or a mammal, I have no

  18. I was cleaning some matrix I got from the Kamp Ranch formation in Dallas last weekend and found this tiny thing in the matrix. I’m wondering if anyone can tell me what it may be without it being fully exposed. The picture quality is not that great. I sure tried to get better pics, but wasn’t able to. It is 5 mm wide at most. So it is difficult to get a good close up pic of it. It’s 4 sided pyramid shape with a peak in the middle that almost looks like it has a groove down the middle of the peak. It was in a loose fragment of matrix I pried off a slab.

    Hunting in Texas

    Hello all! I am wondering if I could get some ideas for places to hunt fossils in Texas. We are currently just north of Dallas and will be heading sort of diagonally to the big bend area. Any ideas of good spots to hunt fossils aong the way. (Some of the trip will have a 9 year old. Any kid friendly spots also appriciated) thanks all in advance!
  20. I went exploring today. I hit 3 places. The 1st two were the Ozan in Rowlett. The first 2 were a busts, but the 3rd was in the Eagle Ford in Dallas and it was a very interesting place. I can’t say that I found specific fossils per se, but I did find the product/remains of prehistoric animals. I was ecstatic with my finds. Septarian nodules have been on my bucket list of things to find. I found a hill full of them!!! I got there less than an hour before sundown and was thrilled with what I found. This one is very cool, but I’m not sure what the original creature actually was.
  21. Here is a very nice little gastropod fossil I found in a creek about 10 miles east of Dallas recently. Once I washed it off well I was shocked by the detail, and even colored stripes! Can anybody give me more info on this? I will post it to the Gallery with more info. Is it very common to see color in fossilized gastropods? Thanks again! KP

    Fossil bone, wood, or other?

    I briefly explored an old creek outside of Dallas, TX yesterday; a creek I used to explore as a kid. I didn't find much at all because it was so overgrown and difficult to access these days. I found a few pretty river rocks, a nice little shell fossil and what appears to be either a little piece of petrified wood or bone. I took macro photos of it tonight. Please let me know what you think. I'm baffled. Larger fossil bone pieces, with this color/texture, have been found in this creek many years ago.
  23. So I've gotten myself into an extremely rare deal- a mosasaur and pliosaur tooth both in the US for a great price. The goodies arrived today, and I might as well show em off. First off, we have a mosasaur tooth from the Ozan Formation of Fannin County. Knowing that the NSR flows inside Fannin County and is also part of the Ozan Formation, This tooth is probably also from the NSR itself. Although the seller didn't have time to do a full ID on the tooth and simply labeled it as unidentified, by extensive comparing with other mosasaur teeth from the area, I can promp
  24. Brand new to the forum, but learned about Post Oak Creek from you guys, so figured I'd share some of my finds from the two trips I've made out there so far. Not pictured are ptychodus teeth and various bone and/or shell fragments. If you wouldn't mind, I would like some help identifying some of the non-shark teeth as well as one shark tooth in particular. Those will be directly below this in the thread due to size limits. Thanks in advance! Ps. for those who aren't local, Post Oak Creek is in Sherman, TX and cuts through a Cretaceous (?) formation. First, here's a shark too

    Help me identify this fossil

    Can you please help me identify these? I found them in my backyard in Fort Worth (Dallas), Texas, and approximately 15in diameter. Are these things that i should find someone to give them to or are they okay to throw away? thanks!
