  7. This coming week I have a few irons in the fire that I am excited about. Saturday I have a new eagle ford site that I recently stumbled on to. It looks a lot different than what I've been looking at in the upper areas. Very creme colored hard clay with red nodules. I'm only guessing I'm near the lower britton. Funny though, I don't think it should be where I'm finding it. Only had a short time to look but I found some decent sized shark teeth, a fish vert and a reptile bone frag. Man it was some kind of fun too! I have some time Saturday to look this place over a bit better. I expect a good hunt there. Monday I have an invite to tag along to the North Sulphur River. Another hot hard 10 hour day of slogging in the muddy channel. We tend to cover 5 or 6 miles, of course not counting all of the zig zagging back and forth. What can I say? This place never lets me down. Its a very long wide channel thats had a good rain this week. Lots of places to go and plenty of things to find. You simply need to be lucky or you just need to be willing to hunt harder and walk far farther than the last guy. Wish I were there right now. I hear people think there might be BIGFOOT in the North Sulphur River. I've not seen any evidence of that. I'm a lot more worried about finding myself following a single set of small shoe prints in the river. They belong to someone small, perhaps a woman. They walk alone and they cover some ground. When you find yourself following them, they go everywhere you think you want to look. I've invariably followed these little prints zig zagging along many stretches of the river. They do one hell of a job picking things up. Iv'e only managed to find a few things following those little foot prints and that's been tough! They don't miss much. So my hat's off to you. If I do see BIGFOOT prints in the river I won't worry too much about him, but if I see your little footprints in the channel I'm getting the hell out of there. Tuesday I am meeting some folks that happen to be the owners of a section of creek in the Eagle Ford that is fenced, posted and not open to the public. I've been invited to the property by them for another reason. I'm sure going to try and get access to hunt if it's appropriate to bring it up. I've found quite a few things through the years right up to their property line. Who knows what might be there? I will try to post some pics next week.
  8. Good Way To End The Weekend!

    So yesterday i posted on my trek into the grayson. Today i made a trip to west dallas to a new creek site i found on my maps that should be eagle ford and im thinking it contained the basal atco fish conglomerate , but im not sure and am still learning. Everyones knowledge would be appreciated. So this will be a multi post/pic topic so bear with me. First everyones favorite.... Site pics....
  9. Trip To Lewisville Lake

    So made a trip out to lewisville lake.Don't know much but should have been eagle ford britton for.??? Right? Pics of a few ammonite and nautilus frags and bits to follow clean up....
  10. It is approx. 1.5 x .75" It looks very worn and is probably part of an ammonite, but I can't quite make sense of it. Any help is very much appreciated. Thanks! Claire
  11. I have some Eagle Ford and Austin group boundry goodies that I hope a few of you might take a look at and tell me what you think. Well heres a shark tooth different that any I've ever found. It's also the biggest I've ever found. Pretty cool. Maybe its a Cretoxyrhina mantelli. Maybe one of the experts would be kind enough to peg this one. Here is something that looks like the floor from the lower jaw from a small mosasaur or some kind of fish. There are no teeth or anything else to help with ID. It's rather fragile. Even if I'm right about what it is I don't know what to call it. Your thoughts are appreciated. This vert sure looks like a Mosasaur to me. Never found one this old before though what do you guys think? Some shark teeth. I think the blunt ones are ptychodus. The bottom left is from the Ozan maybe squalicorax? I wish I had a pic of the killer ptychodus that my buddy found. It was huge about as broad width wise as a silver dollar. I'll try to get a pic to post. Hey...I got pics and I tried to put them up and somehow wound up with this picture section at the bottom, ck it out. A lump of limestone with bones in it. My initial thought was bony fish. I don't see any verts in there. A possible crab. You can imagine it better holding it in your hand. A clam that maybe shouldn't have been where I found it, maybe it was washed down from some road gravel. I hoped to find more but bombed out. The prevalent oyster I've been finding at this formation level. Some of them have the bottom on them it appears to be flat.
  12. Here is a vert that is not like any of the others I've found. It's 2 3/4 inches tall and rather spool like, but oval instead of round. It's not well preserved but does exhibit the grainy look I see in mosasaur verts. My 1st thought was plesiosaur but it does not really look like what I see in any of the pictures. Now I'm thinking croc? Your guesses are welcome.
