  1. Here are some of my finds from spending a few hours on Wednesday, October 26th, in the Graysonites wacoense Zone of the Grayson Formation, Washita Group of north Texas (Early Cenomanian, ~97mya). This particular site exposes a micromorph layer full of thousands of tiny dwarfed Mariella bosquensis and M. rhacioformis ammonites plus a wealth of other taxa like various urchins, brittlestar fragments, shark teeth, many gastropods & pelecypods, etc. Those familiar with the Del Rio exposures of further south in central Texas (particularly the now closed-to-public Waco Pit in McLennan County), sh
  2. A fossil hunting buddy informed me today that the Waco Research Pit is now permanently closed to the public. I called the Army Core and confirmed. Such a shame. Thankfully got to visit a few times. Also a real shame since the Army Core can research the same Del Rio fossils in the dam spillway area (also restricted) as they see fit. You'll be missed, Research Pit.

    Del Rio Clay Mystery Shark Teeth

    These shark teeth were found in the Lower Cretaceous Del Rio Clay. I have seen posts on here that have identified Cretodus semiplicatus and Cretalamna appendiculata as the common shark teeth of the Del Rio Clay; however, none of these teeth seem to match up with photos I have seen of those teeth. Could these teeth simply be from a different position in the mouth than the ones in the photos I have seen? The measurements listed below are from the top of the root to the tip of the crown. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance! #1- 9mm #2- 7mm
  4. My assistant and I checked out a place in Round Rock, Texas where the Del Rio, Buda, and Eagle Ford are close by. I read about the area in some online papers and I used Google maps to make a plan. I'm new and learning, and we try to explore a couple areas a week. (I'd be happy to share the address if any local folks want to check out the area.) We followed a drainage creek to a bigger creek, and then found some interesting creek walls. I was happy to see something besides Austin Chalk. We trekked through waist deep water and saw some interesting cliffs. We always find
  5. Howdy! A few ammonites that are eluding me as to ID. Anyone with more knowledge of them, I would appreciate some confirmation or negation of my attempts! @erose @JohnJ @Uncle Siphuncle From Waco Pit Del Rio Formation. Thanks!! Possibly Tetragonites brazoensis? Or Adkinsia ? Second one Mantelliceras wacoense? Or maybe Paracycloceras? Not a great pic, but a little bit of a close up on the suture of this one:

    First fossil of the (past) year

    Haven't really been able to do much fossil hunting between my job and a herniated disc that meant I couldn't bend down for many months now but finally felt good enough to go to a fairly easy location. This is a spot where the Buda formation meets the del Rio clay. Not sure which this came from but I think del Rio is more likely. Apologies for the image quality. My light died and I had to use a flashlight

    What are these?

    I'm a rookie relative to fossil hunting. I think I know what this is, but i don't want to get ahead of myself. I'm thinking a Baculite. What do ya'll think.
  8. Joe Salande

    What are these?

    Can any body help me identify these. I've found a few crinoids in the past but this is the first time ive found something different . These were found on a hunting trip out of Del Rio texas. The first pic is by itself. Picture two and three are the same rock, but from different angles. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks Joe

    Goblin or something else?

    Found this tooth at Waco site. Del Rio formation, Albian.
  10. Took a little trip out to the Lake Waco Research Area a few days ago (which, by the way, will be off limits for 6 weeks unless you go get a permit before the second week of December). This was my third or fourth time out there and I definitely came up with my best finds from there to date. Got the usual pryitized ammonites and bivalves, 2 beat up shark teeth, 1 tiny fish vertebra, and lots of pieces of echinoids, possibly coenholectypus. I did find one really nice shark tooth by almost sitting on it, a couple of mystery ammonites, and finally got a complete coenholectypus. Saw lots and lot

    Heteromorph ammonite from Waco?

    Hello, Found these while out at the Lake Waco Research Area toward the back end. The research area is Cretaceous Del Rio clay, but this seems to have rolled down the hill from a formation above, possibly Buda limestone or something on top of that. There are 2 specimens and I believe they represent the same type of animal. I haven't really found anything like this before, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Need ID please

    Found this recently in Del Rio, TX in shallow water at a recent mud & rock slide due to collapse of cliff. It's about the size of an average man's fist.
