    Woodbine Nodosaurid?

    I got this a year or so ago, but this was bought as, possibly an ankylosaurian from the Woodbine Formation at Dallas Fort Worth Airport, Texas, USA. It is in pretty rough shape, so I don't expect the best results, but I'm hoping it is an indet. narrowed down to at least Ankylosauria. It looked like it could be a Nodosaurid indet. based on shape. A high chance of it being a complete bust, but I didn't spend much on it so it I figured it was worth the risk for a rare locale. Forgot to take a picture with a measurement, but it's roughly 4.5mm tall.

    Finds from North Sulphur River

    Hello, everyone! I went hunting along the North Sulphur River yesterday (before today’s nasty weather), and I found some fossils and what I am almost positive is an artifact. Could someone please help with IDs, if possible? Pictures #1 and #2 are of the same bone; I found the circular striations in the 2nd picture particularly intriguing. #7 (the artifact) is broken at the base and is fairly thick at the point where it is broken.

    Sidewalk fossil display

    I take trains to work. Whoever designed this sidwalk had a great taste for fossils. Nice ammonite and scallop display. It repeats with leaf display.

    Is it a bone fossil?

    I found this in my black gravel driveway in Dallas. It stuck out because it’s isn’t black. I’m guessing it was brought in from somewhere else, either in my driveway gravel, from the dirt below, or possible from sediment in old concrete. We’ve had a lot of rain lately, so it was probably uncovered from the rain. It is about 2” or 5cm long, about 3/4-1” or 2-2.5cm diameter, kind of wavy-cylindrical. It has a single, prominent hole on each end, kind of like a bead. It is heavy - I first thought it was metal. It has a sandstone-like texture. It looks finely porous, with tiny holes maybe, and some

    Cretoxyrhina tooth

    From the album: Sharks

    One of my favorites - the "ginsu" shark. This one was found at the DFW airport in the 80's.

    Dallas Area Trip March 2022

    Hello everyone! 8 months ago I drove across the country and stopped at Ladonia fossil park. I had a great time but only got a few hours in, and now I'm planning to head back to Texas sometime next month to do some more searching. I know that the fossil park is picked through pretty well, so I'm wondering if anyone has advice for other places to visit in the general area? I hope to be near the Dallas area for several days and am more than willing to travel/hike a good distance. I'm primarily interested in ammonites, echinoderms, and - if at all possible - finding a mosasaur tooth.
  7. Found these on last year's fishing trips on the Trinity, there are no gravel banks on this stretch just dirt and some rocks here and there. Now is this a stone with a butt crack or very worn Echinoid? Has the makings of one, if it is I've never seen one turned to stone like this, how old might this be? The seashell was a surprise to find, I know it's worn but is it a whelk? And would it be pleistocene?

    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

    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

    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.
  13. 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?
  17. 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.
  20. 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

    Eagle Ford Fish Fossils

    Here are some of my fish fossils from the Eagle Ford group of North Texas. Apsopelix sp.
  23. 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!
  25. 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.
