    Texas-sized ammonites

    Happy Fossil Friday everyone! In today's video offering, I sneak across the border into Texas to hunt for those Texas-sized ammonites, and I met another YouTuber on the way.

    Video of Lake Texoma hunt

    Fossil Friday! Today's FF video post is from Lake Texoma. We made our first ever trip to lake Texoma to search the duck creek formation for ammonites. After much research and planning, we arrived to find we could not access the locations we wanted, so we ended up scouting around. It turned out well and we found some great fossils including ammonites, oysters, clams and echinoids.

    Texoma Duckcreek fm hunt

    Yesterday, my son and I finally made a day-trip to Lake Texoma for some fossil hunting. We've been wanting to make this trip for while, but it can be difficult between both our jobs and weather, and lake levels. I planned for this trip by searching the google maps for good looking locations with a nearby shore access. Unfortunately, one spot turned into a private drive, and the other was closed off by the Corps of Engineers for some unknown reason. We didnt want to hit the same spot that everyone else goes to so we began just driving and looking. The first place we stopped was

    Duck Creek Fm fossil mystery

    I'm stumped on this find. Interesting line of symmetry runs through the fossil. Found in approximate location of a 2' diameter turtle back shell. It's not a bivalve I've ever seen. Sure looks like a vertebrae however the spinal cord would not have been closed on the anterior. What is it? Suggestions?

    North Texas Vertebra

    Hey y'all. Long time since I did a post. Hope everybody is well. Found a vertebra in a duck creek exposure, Grayson County, Texas. The hexagonal shape has me wondering - is this possibly ichthyosaur material? Many thanks. BTW - the new features and UI totally rock!!! I was able to do this entire post from my phone. Great work, y'all!!!

    Lake Texoma early Cretaceous oyster

    Duck Creek oyster ID please. This was the only one found in this area. I found numerous other early Cretaceous bivalves in Lake Texoma like Amphidonte walkeri, Graphea, Neithea.

    Xiphactinus Vertebrae?

    I posted this while back, but no ID yet. I'm thinking this is a Xiphactinus vertebrae. Anybody agree?

    Duck Creek Formation oyster ID

    I found these two oysters few weeks ago near Lake Texoma ( Early Cretaceous). Still trying to figure out what it is. I saw a similar oyster called Pycnodonte vesicularis (Lamarck, 1806) , but not 100% sure. I see a paper published for Pycnodonte vesicularis that was found in S. America. An assessment of latest Cretaceous Pycnodonte vesicularis (Lamarck, 1806) shells as records for palaeoseasonality: a multi-proxy investigation https://www.clim-past.net/14/725/2018/cp-14-725-2018.pdf
  9. Hi all. Last week went on a trip to Lake Texoma and surrounding creeks then to report what I have found so far. As I was walking through these layers, I saw exposed sea bed full of ammonites, bivalves, oysters, fossil fish vertebraes, shark tooth, etc. I also noticed there were fine layers of volcanic ash deposits on some of the rocks that were laid down during this era. Due to these activities, bottom of the sea were occasionally became anoxic There were also ancient white mineral that were still coming out of the ground which I assume is the salt mineral. These layers are around 90 mil

    Unknown shells

    What is this? I found these pieces next to a creek on duck creek formation nearby Lake Texoma. It appears to be a shell, but doesn't look like any other shells I found elsewhere.
  11. I found some vertebrae and tooth from a creek that were flowing next to the Lake Texoma today. Those tooth looks like shark or fish tooth. Not sure about the vertebrae though. It appears to be a cretaceous fish. Also on long tooth, not sure whether that's a fish or not. All of these were found next to washed out duck creek grey sediment.

    Fossilized cretaceous sea worm?

    Found small sea urchin next to the ammonite in Lake Texoma Duck creek formation over the weekend. While I was cleaning the sea urchin, I noticed something that caught my eyes. It appears to be a small worm that lived in Cretaceous sea, gotten attached to the sea urchin and fossilized at the same time. Anybody familiar with sea worms like this?
  13. A friend found what looks like a bone in the Lower Cretaceous, Duck Creek Formation of Cooke County Texas. The site yields marine fossils like the ammonite Eopachydiscus marcianus. We have also found some fish parts and a tooth and paddle bone from an ichthyosaur. She plans to join TFF soon but asked me to post this for her.

    A few ammonites I need an ID for

    I went on a field trip with the Dallas Paleo Society about three years ago and haven't got around to IDing some finds. After searching through the back issues of The Fossil Record I think it was the Duck Creek formation which is upper and lower Cretaceous. Any help on these would greatly appreciated. Also, I'm on mobile and trying to resize my images so let me know if these are too small.

    Duck Creek Formation ammonite ID

    I found this ammonite yesterday in what I believe was the Duck Creek Formation in Grayson county, Texas. I think it looks a bit like the Oxytropidoceras, but I didn’t realize they were found in that formation. Can anyone give me a little direction on ID of it? I haven’t taken other shots yet, but it is very thin for how large it is. Maybe an inch thick. I’ll measure it tomorrow, but it’s at least 10 inches in diameter. I’ll post more shots tomorrow. The other side has a nice view of the sutures.

    Duck Creek formation ID

    I went fossil hunting today in the Duck creek formation in Grayson county Texas. I saw these while hiking down a creek and was wondering if anyone could tell me what they are. I have seen these one other place, but didn’t know what it was then either. I suppose they could be a particular rock, but I tend to think it could be from a clam or something.

    Duck Creek echinoids ID x2

    I found these about a week before Christmas in the Duck Creek Formation in Grayson County, Texas, but haven’t had time to post them. I found about 6 of the bigger variety, but only 1 of the smaller more damaged one. I think the larger is a Macraster, but I don’t know the species. I think this is actually my first Macraster. The other one I don’t know the genus. It’s a bit beat up, but I imagine someone can tell me the genus at least. The Macraster I am also curious about the right side dominance, or left dominance when viewed from the bottom side of the urchin.

    Heart urchins

    From the album: Grayson Co. Texas finds

    Various urchins that I have found. Grayson co. Texas found in a creek that runs right through the middle of town in Denison, Grayson co. Tx. I think that this creek is in the Pawpaw formation, but could be Main Street or Duck Creek?
  22. Thanks to forum member (and fellow DPS member) BobWill taking me into a couple of sites that he has access to, I found these beauties on Monday. This big guy's out of a creek cutting through the Duck Creek formation. He was just lying there half-buried in the float. This smaller ammo is from the same creek. Nice keel on it! (Continued.. )

    Trace Fossils, Cretaceous

    Here's an interesting trace fossil from the lower Cretaceous Duck Creek formation at Lake Texoma, Texas. Typical finds from this location include ammonites, inoceramus, and exogyra. Trace fossils are common, usually worm tubes that wind through chunks or flakes of rock. But here's one I haven't seen before. There are four pairs of symetrical markings on this small slab that looks to me like they resulted from the passing of a sea creature on the ocean floor. There is no fossilized organic material here. These are not shark teeth. What do you think? Thanks!
  24. All the other fish that I found have been flat almost two dimensional and so when i picked this one I almost didn't reconize it as a fossil. (honestly with rust stains and the pattern I thought it was a piece morter with metal lathe, at first!) This fish is definitely three dimensional if you look at the close up of the pectoral fin you can see the gap between it and the body. But what was really a nice surprize, when I got it home and washed the mud off there is a gastropod inside where the stomach once was.
