  1. So I picked this guy up on Labor Day weekend. Didn't think I would be able to prep much, as the matrix appeared to be very hard. However, last weekend I noticed a hairline fracture...so I pulled out my hammer and cold chisel and gave it a little whack...

    N Texas Ammonite

    I am going to give this N Texas ammonite away to a kid this weekend on a fossil trip that I am leading in the mountains of central Arizona. This lower Cretaceous ammonite was probably collected from the Fort Worth or Duck Creek Formations. Could it be a Mortoniceras? Thanks, John
  3. I had the day off of work on Memorial Day and I didn’t have my kids, but I was on call. So once again I couldn’t go too far. I decided to head back over to the Benbrook site. It was going to be another scorcher. So I brought along about 40 ounces of fluids. I drove the hour over to west of Benbrook Lake to the new subdivision going in, turned into the development and parked near where I had found the 2 smaller ammonites the previous Tuesday. Before getting out of my car I covered my exposed areas with sunscreen. Sun damage will age you quicker than almost anything and also increase the
  4. I went hunting today. I hit 2 places. Found lots of ammonites. I lost count after a while. Anyway, my last stop was Denton Creek North of Ft.Worth. The formation is Duck Creek. Found a number of ammonites, 1 nautilus and a couple echinoids. There were also a lot of the typical burrows, oysters and Neithia. I say all that so you get the environment and other fossils present. I also found this (see pics below), I’ve never found anything remotely like it so I have no clue what it is. It was in a layer of what I believe to be limestone in an exposure along the bank. I had to hammer it o
  5. My girlfriend recently found this vertebra at the Duck Creek Formation in North Texas. Was a bit of a surprise, didn't expect to find a vert at this locality, which is known more for ammonites, echinoids, and bivalves. One side of the vert has been prepped. Any help with an ID would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! And for those that have kindly enhanced the brightness on my previous pics, no worries! I did it myself this time.

    I found these fossil in Texas and not sure what they are or which species they belong too. Please help me identify them. Thanks. 1. I found this in Kiamichi formation in Fort Worth, Texas. I think it is fragment of turtle shells but I am not sure. 2. also on Kiamichi formation, Fort Worth, Texas, I found this ammonite, please let me know which species it belong too. Thanks. 3. and the echinoid is also at the same place. Which species is it? 4. I also found th

    Lake Texoma, Ammonite

    Over winter break, I decided to head north for some fossil hunting. In particular, I wanted to find a complete ammonite for my collection. In the past I have only found pieces. So I went to Lake Texoma and was happy to see that recent rains didn't make the excursion pointless. It was a little brisk at 40 degrees and a 10 mph wind from the north. The first ammonite I found was complete, easy to excavate, and entirely too large to make the hike back to the car enjoyable. So I left it behind for the next person willing to haul 30-40 lbs. back to the parking lot. The next

    Echinoid jackpot

    I was on call at work all week which meant I had to be within an hour of my work and have cell phone access. I wanted to go fossil hunting so I google mapped an area in Tarrant County, Texas. I found a few potential spots with some exposure and I headed that way. It was an hour drive from home. I’ve been seeing lots of echinoids come out of the area. I had made 3 separate trips to the area not knowing exactly where the echinoids could be found. Two previous trips resulted in abundant ammonite finds. Ammonite hunting often requires a lot of gear and tools. Ammonites are generally big
  9. I went hunting Tuesday before last to a new place over in Benbrook, TX about an hour away. A newer TFF member, Cory had blind messaged me telling me about a place over near Ft. Worth. He thought I might be interested in seeing them. He invited me to come check it out. I get messaged a lot on social medial by complete strangers. So that part was nothing new. I don’t respond to the majority of the messages. With all of the messages I have gotten I have never had a stranger invite me to meet him somewhere, but that was basically the scenario. Sounds like the perfect scenario for something bad t

    Duck Creek formation ammonite ID

    I have no idea what species this is, but I’d like to know if the outer portion is part of the ammonite or just matrix. Debating whether to haul it out of here or not.

    Duck Creek Formation fossil ID

    I went fossil hunting Sunday in the Duck Creek Formation with my daughter. I found 3 small ammonites, numerous echinoids. There were also Inoceramus clams, large burrows and this things. I have no idea what this is. My impressionable mind wants to think it is part of a lobster since I saw the large burrows, but I’m pretty sure that isn’t likely. Since it is only a fragment it may not be identifiable as to belonging to any critter. It is about 3 inches long by 2.5 inches wide. Pic 1 top view. #2 end one #3 end 2 #4 Side view #5 bottom view.
  12. I have some extra fossils I want to trade. I'm looking for trilobites or megalodon teeth but I will consider other offers. The first group is from the Grayson Marl Formation in Denton County, Texas. It includes two Mariella ammonites, two shells, two clams, three brachiopods, two partial Cymatoceras nautiloids and one complete Cymatoceras.

    Texas Cretaceous Mystery

    This slab is a piece of a larger rock with lots of these fossils. You can also see them on the edge of the slab in cross-section. I hesitate to make any guesses on this one, it's like nothing I've seen. The hash marks are mm. From another place on the slab
  14. I have three groups of fossils from Texas to trade. I am mainly interested in trilobites, Megalodon teeth, and Ammonites but I will accept other fossils. The first group is from Lake Texoma. It includes an unprepared ammonite, a idiohamites ammonite, a partial ammonite, echinoids, clams and an unprepared echinoid.

    Any idea what is this?

    Found these embedded in limestone on a creek bank. According to USGS map this area belongs to Fort Worth limestone and Duck Creek Formation undivided. Any idea what these might be? If they aren't in the same rock layer where ammonites are found, I would probably mistaken them for modern day shell. Is it possible for fossils to keep it's color pattern when they are fossilized?
  16. The lure of ammonites was strong, but with the US Army Corps of Engineers regulations regarding fossil hunting on USACE-managed land, I figured I'd play it safe & only collect photographs of what I saw. It was a bit refreshing to walk out of a fossil site without what felt like 500 pounds of rock in my backpack!
