  1. With time running out before the start of the school year, I decided to spread my attention across three DFW formations to get a little taste of what each has to offer. Instead of shooting out a handful of smaller topics, I've decided to combine my trips into a single larger post. I wouldn't say any individual find is a jaw-dropper or museum-worthy, but they, all together, give a nice glimpse into what each formation can yield. In order from oldest to youngest: Goodland This adventure took place in Oliver Creek with the Dallas Paleo Society. It's a regular s
  2. I've been recently looking into working with b72 for preserving and strengthening some of the pyrite and coal fossils I have. At the moment, I have a few questions regarding this topic: 1) For DFW folk, do you recommend any stores that sell b72 in the DFW area? For others, do you recommend any reputable online stores that ship it? 2) Should I store acetone in the original container I purchased it in? What is the safest part of the house to keep it? 3) What are any general tips/tricks you wish you knew before you started using b72? Feel free to answer as few of

    From the album: Sharks

    A large genus (for the Cretaceous); this one was found at the DFW airport in the 80's.

    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.

    small shiny + black

    The area from Dallas Fort Worth airport to Arlington, TX seems to be littered small shiny black stones. Some tempt a garfish scale identification while others like these suggest teeth. Somehow I doubt both. I would be interest in finding out for sure what they are though. Thankyou in advance.
  6. I hunted for the second day in a row yesterday. This was a creek in the middle of Dallas-Fort Worth. I'd wanted to make a trip to this creek for a while, plus had some errands in the city, so made the drive for both yesterday. After the long and arduous hike the day before, this was supposed to be short and easy. I was seriously mistaken about that. The creek banks were just too steep to get into the creek. I ended up walking quite a ways, and even then, went down a bank so steep that I tied a rope and left it to get myself back up the bank. I was thinking that if rain got anywhere near me, I'

    Cretoxyrhina mantelli (5)

    From the album: Sharks

    Cretoxyrhina mantelli Ginsu shark Eagle Ford Group, Dallas, TX Found at the DFW airport in the 80's, this anterior tooth shows some nice coloration.

    Help ID Cretaceous ammonites

    Found all these in the same place, north Irving ( Dallas County) in eroding drainage canal, lots of shale and concretions and neat little rocks you crack open with surprise inside. Is the small one Metoicoceras? Hard for me to differentiate that and Calycoceras, which the bigger one looks like to me but they wouldn't be in the same place, correct? And the little guy a Heteromorph maybe? I seem to find a lot of those. My favorite part of these is the suture mark patterns.
  9. From what I've learned crinoids aren't from around here, prob from way upstream fill rock. Here being Dallas creekbed in Eagle Ford shale. Its so unique with the patterns, almost looks carved, just guessing part of a crinoid because of the cylinder shape. What the heck is it?

    Two Texas DFW Cretaceous Nautilus

    When I was visiting my parents for Christmas, there was a surprise for me in my favorite local creek bed, and it wasn't just how cold the water was! I've found plenty of ammos there, but these are my first two nautilus. I tried to find out what they are, but I pretty much got redirected to ammo IDs. I was also wondering if it's worth buying the HGMS ID books. I'm curious, but don't really want to spend the money. These were found in a marl layer, but I'm not really sure which one. Grayson Marl I believe. Found in Tarrant County. Are they cymatoceras? Cracked one is about 2" diameter,
  11. Is anyone willing to either give me a good spot or take me on a guide (I will pay) for my 7 year old? She is bullied alot by our neighborhood adults so I need to get her away. She is obsessed with dinosaurs and such and I know there are no dinosaur, just crustacious (idk if I spelled that right) but the ocean stuff.) Someone please help me with somewhere. I know mineral wells has a lot of cool things but we are going to Lewisville to deliver Girl Scout cookies and that is 1h 45 min away. Was hoping for something closer. Anyone? PLEASE help me make my child happy! The p

    Egg or Concretion?

    I found this rock when walking near the Trinity River in Dallas, TX. It could have been brought in with gravel used to make a trail, since I found it by a trail. It's probably just a concretion, but the patterns are interesting! Anyone know what it is? Thanks!
  13. 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 ID shark vertebrae

    Found in a Dallas/Ft. Worth creek, Cretaceous.
  15. Fellow Hunters, This past summer I've been trying my hand at fossil hunting. I've been "digging" and sifting local/ public creek beds and accessible construction sites in the surrounding DFW areas (TEXAS). However, it was recommended to me I start asking the permission of local farm and land owners to enter their properties for my weekend hunts. My question is what sort of written documentation do I need from these land owners to be on their land? Is there some sort of "legal standard" or template I should use for this sort of thing? I'm very new at this so please pardon my ignorance. Thank

    Rookie needs help in DFW

    I would like to start taking my children to hunt for fossils, minerals, or cool rocks. I really have to get them off of the couch and learning something. I don't need to find the greatest fossils but I do need to make sure I find something. I have a book on identification, I have a few spots we are going to tomorrow. My problem is that no one seems to want to give away a good spot. Any help would be appreciated. I have always been super interested in old things, and I know the kids would love it. Any help would be greatly appreciated and I would be happy to share my finds.
  17. I am new to the site and had a question on asteroceras and how common they are to find in Texas or the U.S. for that matter. Any information would be greatly appreciated, thank you. I attached a few images of the fist few I've found still have a huge bucket to go through.
  18. Nothing spectacular compared to most stuff I see posted, but these are the best verts and the largest piece of crab claw that I've come up with yet, so I'm pleased to add them to my collection. BRGDS sward DFW, TX
