  1. Echinoid Express

    Macraster elegans Assemblage

    From the album: My Echinoid Collection

    Macraster elegans Assemblage Duck Creek Formation Albian Age, Early Cretaceous (102-100 Ma) Grayson County, Texas, USA Acquired from a collector during a local trade show, September 2023
  2. I strolled around Lake Texoma today. I mainly was looking for a chunky ammonite to take home, and I knew I was in for some serious work if I wanted to find a nice one. While walking to the ammonite beach, I picked through some marl banks and found a couple cool keepers. The pyritized small ammonites were plentiful, so I picked a few, while the shark teeth were not. Only found one. Looks like Cretalamna sp? I did manage to find a pretty nice echinoid that the water had cleaned perfectly. Hemiaster sp? Unfortunately the ammonite beach wasn't what I had h
  3. Hello all, I’m hoping the braintrust here can help me identify the species of two Mortoniceras Ammonite cast fragments I found this past Spring. They were located in an alluvial river deposit that runs through the Duck Creek and Weno Limestone/Pawpaw formations of Northern Tarrant County in north Texas. If my reading is correct, they should be mid-Cretaceous period and approx. 100 to 95 mya, but I would love someone to check me on that as well. The cast in the first three pics is fairly well defined with a prominent siphuncle ridge. The second cast (last four

    Quick Evening Trip…

    Had a couple hours to hunt one of my local spots this evening… I didn’t find much, but I did manage to pull a nice little bivalve shell embedded over an ammonite imprint. cheers!

    6 Weekend Trips In North Texas…

    I’m still very new to fossils, but I’ve been hunting in and around North Texas the last 6 weekends… This is the best 25% of what I’ve found so far.

    Some Sort Of Bivalve???

    I’m having some trouble identifying this one… I presume it’s some sort of bivalve and it came off a gravel bar in Denton Creek (north of Fort Worth in the Duck Creek Formation) but I can’t seem to find any photo matches on the inter-webs to identify it. Any thoughts on species? Thanks Paul L.

    Possible vertebrae & Crab Leg?

    Hello all Still a bit of a newbie here but I stumbled across a couple things I haven’t seen before… The first find looks a bit like a vertebrae (pics 1 and 2)… Pics 3 and 4 are what looks like a segmented crab leg, but I’m just not sure what to make of it. It may just be my mind playing tricks (in both cases), but I was hoping to get the consensus of the experts here. Any help is much appreciated! Thanks, Paul L.
  8. Belton. Texas is the southern most boundary of Duck Formation in Texas. This is far as you can go and still find decent size Eopachydiscus ammonites (unless somebody can challenge that). I pulled over the service road and started looking. Few weeks ago I also found some nautiolids on this stretch of road, so I knew there were fossils here. I immediately saw the ammonites sticking out of rock pile. It was totally unexpected. They measure around 8 to 12 inches. Area has lots of road construction so rocks get dug out and coverd almost immediately. Just matter of luck.
  9. This week's adventure for Rockwood and I was to the Duck Creek formation in Tarrant county, we found gobs of gastropods, echinoids, bi valves and peices of ammonite along with unknowns. Being unfamiliar with this formation I'm having trouble with some ID's, starting with these 2. I cannot find match for the oyster, maybe the ones I was looking at were worn down so I didn't recognize it I'm not sure. The impression really has me thrown off, the piece of shell looks like it might be what made it but I don't know what it is either. Appreciate any help
  10. I know this photo isn't much to go by but I didn't have a better camera and no tools to extract it from the large rock so I could bring it home. I just hope I can still find it. This is about 10 cm long, found in Spring Creek, Cooke County, Texas. These are marine, limestone deposits with abundant ammonites. It may not be bone but I can't think what else it might be. That could be a scaphopod below it but I haven't seen them here before.
  11. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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.

    Need help identify Texas Fossil

    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.

    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
  19. 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
