  1. The rock it's imbedded in is approx. 1" x 2". Cretaceous, Eagle Ford. It would be plausible to find one in this area, I'm just not 100% convinced and thought you guys might have an opinion. Thanks for any help.
  2. Any idea if this is bone or shell? What might this be? Any help is very much appreciated. About 3/4" square. Thanks!
  3. BIG Texas Shark tooth

    From the tip of the root ( seems it may be longer, going further in the rock ) to the tip of the crown is a little over 2 1/4 inches. Dallas County, Atco Formation What say the experts?
  4. Texas Eagle Ford Exogyra Fossil

    In early July 2016, I encountered a virtual self-guide field trip posted online by Pete R. Rose, PhD in February 2012. He describes an Eagle Ford (Kef) outcrop exposed in the parking lot of Barton Creek Mall in Austin, Texas. I went there to check it out. The USGS webviewer only designates the area as Georgetown-Del Rio. But, the U.T. Bureau of Economic Geology has an accurate Geologic Quadrangle Map #38 that shows this feature. But, it predates Barton Creek Mall which is not on the map. Interestingly, the Austin Chalk Atco Member caps the nearby hilltops, but it is heavily weathered to caliche and rusty ferrous minerals. Difficult to find fossils in the transition zone. The South Bosque member is clearly visible and underlain by the Bouldin Flags (BF) Member. The BF has much thicker flaggy beds than I usually see (up to one foot thick). In the lower part of the BF, I extracted this beautiful slab of what I think are Exogyra columbella levis (Meek). The largest ones are ~1" wide. Most of the Kef outcrops I have visited have just fragmented oyster hash. This is the first time, I have seen the complete fossils rather than just rounded fragments. Also, I think a nearby rock had traces of a fish fin on it. I took a picture just after dark, but left the fossil there. It was a very large rock and a paper-thin fossil remnant. I believe it was about 6 to 8" long. Anyone have better IDs? I was surprised to see Exogyra in the Kef. Lee Schnelle
  5. Texas Cretaceous Shark Tooth ID

    Found this shark tooth in the Atco Formation, what's the species?
  6. I've been very busy lately but I did enjoy finding this nice Cretodus tooth hiding under a rock. Have a great weekend 😀
  7. Went out again this morning. Decent day with some good variety. Finds include mosasaur, shark, and fish. All from the Eagle Ford Group of far north TX. Late Cretaceous. 85-92 mya. First was a mosasaur jaw fragment
  8. North Texas got hit with 2+ inch hail yesterday. Luckily my house was sparred but I did hit a creek in the path of that storm. Found a few things including a large chunk of bone, few fish verts, possible plesiosaur tooth?, and some shark teeth. Eagle ford float material 85-90 mya. Video of the storm: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=kMveT5HqmMw
  9. Big ole bone- north Texas ?

    Found this guy today. It was float material in a creek with eagle ford exposure. Much bigger than anything I've found in this area. Maybe a huge vertebra or pelvic piece? Somebody please say Dino ; )
  10. Decent week, found quite a few bone bits, a couple fish centra, and a tiny artifact..
  11. Kinda cool- I found these 2 fragments around 1,000 feet apart in a creek. I just discovered they match up. I assume this is a jaw fragment with a tooth socket exposed? Can we tell if it's mosasaur or bony fish? From eagle ford group of late cretaceous. Thanks!
  12. 9 more inches of rain last week so I'm hoping I'll do well the next few weeks. Here a few items found recently. Got a nice Gary point, a ptychodus atcoensis, articulated fish centra, and some mosasaur parts..
  13. After a trace of rain in 3 months, Dallas was treated to 10+ inches in 12 days. Had a fun week searching and found a pretty good variety. Got some cool Native American artifacts as well. We'll see what next week brings with some lower water levels.
  14. We finally got rain here after 2 months of nothing. Found a shark centra, a ptychodus mortoni, a large ptychodus whipplei, a few other shark teeth, and a Native American dart point dated Late Archaic 2,000-500 B.C.
  15. For once I remembered to take a pic before reaching down to grab my find! I love at looking at the in situ photos here in the Forum, it is almost as being there in person, so here is one for you Granted, this is an easy one. North Texas - Eagle Ford
  16. Hi, help with this bone would be appreciated. Hoping to pinpoint the ID so I can label it in my showcase. Found in North Tx, Eagle Ford, Upper Cretaceous. Density strongly suggests marine... Thank you, Suvi
  17. Found a few decent things this morning around Dallas. We've had a trace of rain in 45 days so it's been slow. Got a mosasaur jaw fragment, articulated fish vertebrae in matrix, and a prehistoric arrowhead from 700-1200 A.D.
  18. Found this odd claw-like bit today while sorting through gravel from Post Oak Creek. Any ideas as to what this might be? Scale is in mm. Dark photo just to show scale. Both sides of the object. The best shot I could get of the "proximal" end of the thing.
  19. Post Oak Creek Finds

    Found these in the Post Oak Creek in Sherman, TX. Eagle Ford and Austin Chaulk contact. Need help with ID ing these items. Thanks in advance for your help.
  20. Hi - I found these vertebrae today at a new location and noticed that this set is not the typical disc shape I usually see but each vertebra has an 'extension' on the top end that spans over the next vertebra. Not quite sure how to describe it, I hope the pictures will shed some light. Any idea what this could be from? I also found this piece of bone - maybe the peculiar shape can help with identificiation? As always, any assistance is greatly appreciated! Nicole
  21. Eagle Ford Shark Teeth

    Hey, I found a few shark teeth in the Eagle Ford fm in a construction site in the town of Denton, just north of Dalla. Can someone help me identify what shark species they are ? Also, there were these large shells that appeared rotated, and they were extremely common in the area. Any idea on what those are as well? Thanks
  22. Went looking for arrowheads and didn't find much but this made up for it. Saw it in the water as I was about to leave. Ties my biggest tooth and much wider. This thing is a biggin! Late cretaceous North Central texas Eagle ford group 85-90 mya
  23. Nice big Cretodus and Ptychodus Whipplei shark teeth from the late cretaceous, Eagle Ford in far north texas. Also found a small mosasaur vertebra.
  24. Good morning - well, porcupine quills seem unlikely but it sure looks like it... After a particularly stressful week at work, I got to hunt a bit last evening to get my mind back into the right place. The last couple of trips resulted in much disappointment because I returned literally empty-handed despite the massive rains we had. But patience (or stubbornness) finally paid off. I have to mention that these finds are much larger than what I typically find in that area, I am assuming the flooding has something to do with that. I first stumbled upon this chunk of bone sticking out of the bank. Did not expect it to be fossilized but it definitely is. Is there any way to tell what this is coming from? There don't seem to be many telltale identifiers but I also know that there are some very sharp people on this forum... This vert was found within a couple hundred feet from the bone. Simply because of the size I tend to think that this may be from the same guy or gal. I forgot the ruler in my pictures, but it is about 9 cm across and stands about 9.5 cm tall. Lastly, after it started to get dark, I noticed this in the water. Seeing the 'lines' I was convinced it was man-made and the dwindling light made it difficult to discern much but the feel of it was clearly 'fossil'. So, here are my 'porcupine quills' =) A more likely explanation might be fish bones. I should note that these are all individual bones held together by matrix alone. The matrix has a red tinge to it. This is a very exciting find to me, probably because I rarely see a fossil being so 'organized'. As always, I am looking forward to hearing your opinions on these finds! Thank you!
  25. Cretaceous Jaw.....fish,mosasaur?

    Found some things this am. I assume I have a jaw fragment and mosasaur tooth? Thoughts on the jaw? Thanks. Late cretaceous, Eagle Ford, 86-92 mya, north central tx.
