  1. Last weekend was one I'll never forget... I've barely processed it, but now that I can be more coherent, here is the story of the mosasaur we found --------------------------------------------------------------------------- On September 11 & 12, I researched and found new fossil hunting area (to me), that exposed the Eagle Ford formation. I decided to scout it, and that scouting trip ended up being wildly successful. On the first weekend of my scout, I walked away with severa

    Septarian nodule?

    I visited a new creek in Hill County Tuesday. This is an Eagle Ford area. As often happens with a new site, I didn't find any of the fossils I was hoping for, and won't likely go back to this creek. I did find this strange looking piece, though. I'm thinking it has to be a septarian nodule, though it looks completely unlike any septarian nodules I've found or seen online. Am I identifying this correctly? Here are three views of it. The morning shadows are a bit harsh, and I probably should have found a more contrasting background than my driveway in the last two photos, but here it is, in all
  3. Tuesday morning, I made a trip back to the Ellis County creek where I've found so many teeth. I had been making a short hike across the pastures of two land owners to get to this creek, but the last time I asked permission, one of the land owners refused me, saying he had made a deal to give exclusive rights to another fossil hunting family. I can still get to the creek, but now it's a very long hike for me. So, I waited until the hottest part of summer was gone to try that long hike. When I reached the small section of the creek where I'd been finding most of the teeth, this is wh
  4. I finally broke through today, and made some of my proudest finds ever... multiple times. I have some questions on a few ID's. When I compared these Ptychodus to the Ptychodus ID guide, they kind of reminded me of anonymus and mammilaris. I'm excited because everywhere else I've only ever found mortoni before. I did not find any mortoni here. In the same slab as a ptychodus, there's also a small tooth that's perhaps suggestive of Mosasaur - however, fish teeth from those like pachyrhizodus look deceptively mosasaurian to my inexperienced eye. Furthermore, it's small size could
  5. Today was the best fossil hunt I've ever had. I feel like I say that every time lately, but it really is true. Today was attempt number three at investigating the Eagle Ford. Attempt number one, in Travis county, found me wandering into the Austin Chalk. I did get a great consolation prize though, in the form of gigantic segment of a Parapuzosia sp. ammonite. Attempt number two was in Williamson county - the Eagle Ford is rare here, only really exposed by housing development. For that reason, I was quite pleased to discover a permanent exposure with consi

  7. Yesterday was attempt number two at finding exposures of the Eagle Ford formation. My first attempt a month ago found me deep in the city of Austin, searching for the Bouldin Flags member of the Eagle Ford. I had to move upstream to avoid a large homeless camp, and found myself on the Austin chalk instead, where I found a large piece of a Parapuzosia sp. ammonite ( that trip is below) While definitely a memorable hunt, with a cool fossil to show for it, it was technically still a mission failed - the Eagle Ford still eluded me. So yesterday, i decided to try again, this ti

  9. I made a trip to a new creek in Hill County last Thursday. This is another Eagle Ford creek, though it is very close to Austin Chalk coverage. It was another creek that's tough to hike in places. Even with my new, first time ever, prescription glasses on, I didn't find a whole lot, but I did bring home a few interesting pieces. Here are opposite direction views of the same outcrop in the creek. It has the blue gray clay you find so often in Eagle Ford outcrops. There were lots and lots of small ammonite imprints in rocks, like the one in the upper left

    ammonite and coral

    Hey y'all, I'd like any ID's on genus or even species, if possible. Below - Ammonite partial, Comanche peak formation, from a creek in round rock (which is just north of austin) Below, a Coral, from the same creek in round rock, but on a different formation. According to the map, it could either be Buda formation or Eagle Ford
  11. Went to creek I frequent but went down to a part I haven't been to for awhile, had several good floods since. Much to my surprise I rounded a corner and the bottom of the creek was pale yellow as far as I could see down. As you see in the picture there was shapes carved out by water, and it was very thick in places, but it was soft enough to break of pieces and it was grey underneath. So is this a layer of shale? If so why is it yellow? This may be natural in Eagle Ford and I've just never seen it in this form, just looking around I spotted this ammonite and just plucked it out. So now wonder

    Giant Ammonite - Austin, Texas

    Hey y'all Exciting find for me today. Decided It was about time to investigate the Eagle Ford formation for once, and it certainly paid off! This was not my target, but a thrill nonetheless. Is anyone able to lend an ID? It's quite weather worn, and I don't have exact measurements yet, but the pictures might have enough context

    Fish Tooth found in Lake?

    Hello, I found this tooth or rock in the bank of a lake where I was collecting and sifting in a concentrated gravel spot. 1 oyster, 1 coral piece, and 2 snails are the only fossils I found. After searching a little more, I found this rock which I'm assuming is a tooth. The gravel where I found this possible tooth is also in the Eagle Ford of the Cretaceous of Texas. I'm thinking either shark or fish tooth. It's slightly curved and there isn't any enamel or serrations (that I can see), so I might be wrong. Can anyone identify the species of animal the tooth may have belonged to? Or if

    Post Oak Creek oysters

    Does anyone know the Genus/Species of these common oysters from Post Oak Creek, Sherman, Texas.
  15. After nine months, I finally made it back to the Ellis County creek where I've found so many teeth. This is an Eagle Ford outcrop. The water level was much higher than I expected. It wasn't quite up to the matrix that holds most of the fossils, but high enough to make wading across the creek dicey, plus I didn't get to hunt most of the sand bars. This is the biggest fish vert I've ever found. Most of the fish verts I've found in this creek aren't in very good condition either, but this one is in really nice shape. As usual for this creek, most of the Ptychodus te

    Help with micro fossil ID

    All of these came from LENS sample, in first set I know the brown tooth is Echnodus, what are the other two? Oh, whatever that little dot with 2 white root looking things is maybe somewhat irrelevant, it disappeared. Next set of things I had put on tape so really couldn't move them, some of it just disregard, but other than Echnodus teeth what else is there? Esp. the odd little black ball. The largest tooth is 1/2 cm.

    Cretoxyrhina mantelli (4)

    From the album: Sharks

    Cretoxyrhina mantelli Ginsu shark Niobrara Fm., Gove Co., KS (leftmost 2 teeth) Eagle Ford Group, Sherman, TX (largest tooth) Eagle Ford Group, Dallas, TX (rightmost 2 teeth) A collection of teeth from a formidable Late Cretaceous lamniform shark. This species competed with other sharks and marine reptiles in the Western Interior Seaway ~ 90 Ma. It likely filled a similar niche that the Great White Shark does today. The ginsu was on average larger than the Great White. Oh, it also ate dinosaurs.
  18. I've driven by this field for years with a big ravine in the distance and decided to check it out since it wasn't fenced or posted and glad I did. The ravine was a good 30-40 yards long, probably 10ft+ at deep end and around 5ft wide, as I got closer the dirt changed to grey clay mud with little vegetation, the surface was sandy and rocky. First thing I saw was the large Echinoid, then peices of what I thought were ammonites until I found a more intact one, then I thought Turritella but didn't quite fit. Had a heck of a time trying to ID them and finally ran across Turrilites, I think that's w

    Is this a cast of something?

    This is unlike the calcite I usually collect, it looks compressed, and like it was part of something, the shape looks too unusual to be natural. Hoping someone might recognize the shape. The part of the creek it came from was Eagle Ford but downstream from Alluvial deposits.
  20. This is the largest gastropod I've found and with intact aperture to boot. Is it larger version of the smaller ones? Is that a turritella next to it?

    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.
  22. 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.
