  1. I am just stumped on these. All came from banks of canal at the bottom of a hill. These are all on the shallow level side of canal amongst sandstone, and they are everywhere. On other side of canal a little further down it's grey clay with big red concretions and fossils shown but these aren't present. These whatever they are aren't very heavy but hard like limestone. Only found one with inclusion, and broke one open and it's smooth. Included pictures of both. They kinda stick to tongue.

    Monster Texas Cretodus

    Got out to my favorite spot for an hour before dark last night. Started to walk down a small slope and saw it. I swear I looked back and away three times not believing what I was seeing. I have found a few monsters in this creek including a few over the two inch mark but could instantly see this one is crazy special. This is by far the largest Cretodus I have ever seen. Not only does it break 2.5 inches but if there were a record for weight, this may be the top. Thought my plesiosaur vert I found in January was my find of the year, think this may have just moved into first place.

    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.
  4. ... and it is only the beginning of January. A bucket list item I have been hunting for for a while. Plesiosaur vertebra from the Eagle Ford of North Texas.

    South texas fossiling

    I took advantage of the nice weather on my last couple days off and went to a couple sites around town, in no particular order here's the most interesting things I found. First a worn ptychodus anonymous tooth from the eagle ford shale. next what I think is a pachidiscus travisi from the basal pecan gap chalk and a half of a graptocarcinus texanus carapace from the buda formation in a location I had never found anything particulary interesting before. Quite worn but still recognizable And while normally one finds echinoids and ammonites in the georgetown this time I only f

    Ancyloceras ( with spikes )?

    I have several Heteromorphs but none have such large protrusions. Are these called horns? I worked on this for an hour trying to expose as much as possible, it's buried in bacculites. Found in shale in north Irving TX, inc. pic of other ammonites found there.
  7. Lone Hunter

    Heteromorph?

    I found this in north Irving, in a park drainage ditch that was eroding down to shale. Have found lots of goodies in it but this is coolest.

    Post Oak Creek 11-18-20

    Here are my finds from my latest POC visit. Made a decent haul with my best Ptychodus yet and my largest tooth so far here. The tooth was about 1.5 inches. I also found a small ptychodus with no root but it did have very defined grooves. Pictures 2 and 3 are the large Ptychodus and picture 4 is the 1.5 inch tooth. 5 and 6 are the small Ptychodus. Picture 7 is the creek wall matrix I was looking in for teeth and 8 and 9 are the actual teeth I found in the matrix. Does anyone know if this is original matrix? I was able to find several teeth sticking out but several of them were also just pieces
  9. Work has been interfering with both my cycling and fossil hunting time lately. I managed a day off today and started the day with a 30 mile bike ride. But there's a creek in Ellis County I've been wanting to hunt, and I really wanted to get my first look at it while the water is low. With Hurricane Laura bearing down on the coast, I decided to make that hunting trip today, not being at all sure how much longer the water will be this low. It's an Eagle Ford outcrop I went to in this creek. With my late start, it was 11:00 before my hike down the creek got me to the outcrop. I left a
  10. Here are some finds from two trips in early November. Several ptychodus with one nice large one, a ton of shark teeth shards, a couple pieces of mammal enamel, and some unknowns. Im posting the shark teeth first and then will post the pictures of some of the others. Let me know what you think. Anyone know the species of the teeth in picture 1? I was specifically wondering about number 3 from the first picture. Pictures 6-10 are closeups. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

    Post Oak Creek Micro IDs

    I have been able to identify most of the shark and batoid micro fossils I pulled out of the matrix I got from @Captcrunch227 . There a few teeth that I can not identify though so I thought I post them here. I think this 6mm tooth is a Paranomotodon tooth. It certainly appears to match the others I have and the examples on Elasmo. There is no evidence of any lateral cusps or anything.

    Ptychodus Tooth ID

    This came from the bottom of the Eagle Ford formation in Texas, could even be the top of the Woodbine formation. Ptychodus lattisimis? last pic for scale
  13. I made a quick trip yesterday back to the Ellis County creek where I found so many teeth. With all the work being done to deer stands and feeders near it last time I was there, I knew my days of being able to hunt it this year were numbered, and sure enough, I have been officially banned by the landowner whose pasture I must cross to get to the creek, until at least next February. I knew my two best micro-spots in the creek were pretty much played out until we get floods and erosion, but I figured I might spend some time searching the gravel bars in the creek, and walk a little fu
  14. I decided to take a break in picking through the matrix from my last trip and actually get out and hunt this morning. I drove over to Hill County, and tried out a new creek. I really didn't find anything worth mentioning there, left and stopped on the way home at the creek where I'd found so much mud three weeks ago. It was much drier this time, and I had a lot easier time navigating it. But I still didn't find many fossils. Just like last time though, it produced one that made the trip really worthwhile. Does anyone know what this fish tail belonged to? A Xiphactinus, maybe?
  15. I made a drive to explore a new creek in Hill County Friday morning. It ended up being some of the toughest hiking in a creek bottom I've done. This is another Eagle Ford outcrop, and in satellite photos, the blue-gray shale went from the sides of the creek walls all the way to the bottom of the creek bed, just like the Ellis County creek I visited last week. In real life on Friday, the creek bed was full of mud, and it covered much of the lower walls of the creek too. I've never seen such a difference in a reasonably recent satellite photo and actual appearance. To make matters w
  16. I have been wanting to make it back to the Ellis County creek where I found so many teeth, but by the time I could do it, it had rained enough to raise the creek quite a bit. The water level has just now dropped again. I was working near Ellis County this morning, and when I finished very early, it seemed the perfect time to go back. Rain is forecast for this evening and the next couple of days that will likely bring the creek up again. Below is what I found that was either loose, or easily removed from matrix.
  17. What genus or species is this? Any ideas? I found this small jaw fragment (triangular form - first 5 pics) in the Lower South Bosque Member (Lower Turonian) of Eagle Ford Shale here in Travis County today. I see 7 spots for teeth of which all but one are significantly damaged or worn down. The size is 17mm x 20mm and 10mm tall including jaw. These are the best images I can get with my cell phone. I have found individual 5 to 7 mm tall teeth in this layer also that might fit in this jaw. Could it be a fish instead? Maybe Enchodus? I've also found a pycnodont (last three pics) fish jaw in th

    Texas Cretodus

    Have done a bit of hunting at my local creek system that is very close to where I live and have been fortunate to turn up a few large complete Cretodus over the last couple of weeks. Largest are 57mm and 56mm and we’re found just a hundred feet apart two days apart.
  19. Just a few ammonites from my last hunt along with a cool rock .
  20. I had a job in Dallas this morning (retirement still hasn't quite taken), but finished very early, so I decided to stop by a spot that was on my list, that was only five miles or so from where I was working. Wearing jeans and a work shirt, and with a forecast high of 99 degrees today, I knew I wouldn't be staying long, but I was close to the spot, and it wasn't nearly as long a hike from where I'd park as I usually end up with, so I figured I'd take a look. This is an Eagle Ford outcrop. It's in the middle of DFW, so not exactly secret and off the beaten path, so I wasn't sure if I

    Texas Pliosaur

    Went out for a hunt with friends today on a local creek in Denton County, Texas and came across this great tooth. Better beat up that not to find at all. Was totally stoked when I saw the tip and thought I had found a large mosy in this creek. Was even more excited when I made out what I had really found.

    Help w/ ID new fossil finds!

    Hello! I'm a pretty novice fossil hunter, so I look for things that stand out! Recently I found these in a span of about two weeks, I haven't seen anything like them before. The small ones all have a flat/facet on the posterior side, same teardrop shape, and the larger ones look like " big ears" to me, lol. I thought maybe iron concecretions at first, but the small ones look different, in that they are not "round". Ammonites? Reminds me of some of the pics posted of plesiosaur fossils, I have more pics, but the files are too big to post all at one time - I would really appreciate

    Plesiosaur Tooth

    Have a creek not far from my house that I hunt regularly that turns up a few goodies on every trip. Went out hunting last week and found this partial tooth. I have found Mosasaur bones and teeth here but am pretty sure this tooth is from something else. My thought is plesiosaur due to it having much heavier striations and also looks to have a pretty good curve to it. Thank you for any insight.
