  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. Did a quick hunt this am. I rarely find centrums at this locality but found 2 today. I'm thinking they are associated, found close by. Eagle Ford group, 86-92 mya.
  4. I found a few pieces after the last monsoon here in North Texas. The first looks like it might have predatory marks. But I wanted to ask if anyone can name the second piece? Are those holes teeth sockets or something else? Thanks as always. Late Cretaceous Eagle Ford Group/ Atco Austin float material 85-92 mya
  5. Biggest ptychodus I've found. Atcoensis?
  6. Just got back from a quick hunt. Found these within 50 yards. Can we tell if they are marine or land based? Thanks. Late Cretaceous Upper eagle ford 85-90 mya
  7. Id Help! Rudist? If So What Type?

    Appreciate any comments! Looks like a flat Hippurites radiosus? Scientific Name: Unknown Found: North Central Texas Date Found: Summer 2014 Formation: Alluvium Qt / Eagle Ford Size: 50mm sorry for the hand and fingers!
  8. From the album Texas Finds

    Scientific Name: Various Found: North Central Texas Date Found: November 2014 Formation: Alluvium Qt / Eagle Ford Size: Various
  9. Baculites, Gastropods in matrix1

    From the album Texas Finds

    Scientific Name: Various Found: North Central Texas Date Found: November 2014 Formation: Alluvium Qt / Eagle Ford Size: Various
  10. This is from the upper cretaceous Eagle Ford formation. Thanks for any help!
  11. Help Identify Cretaceous Ammonite

    Hi, I found this beauty at lake texoma. Upper Cretaceous era, Eagle Ford I think. Is it Oxytropidoceras? It's in really good shape. Both sides are present. I liked to had a coronary when it popped right out of the limestone. It's size is 9" x 7 1/4" x 1 3/8"
  12. I have come across several of them now and can't find anything that matches up with them and still fits my Cretaceous area. Does anyone know what they might be? Thanks very much for any help . This one is Approx 3.5" x .75" (the rock itself is slightly larger) Paper plate for scale: One more, but I have several others: Or am I completely off the mark?
  13. When someone gets a second could you help me id these? They are cretaceous. Paper plate for scale. The flip side: Thanks for having a look!
  14. Size is Approx. 1.5" x 1" and is from the Eagle Ford formation in Texas.
  15. I found this little fish recently and was wondering if someone could give me some advice on prepping it. It's very small- 3" x 2" . The matrix is moderately hard and some of the bones are very tiny and delicate looking. Should I just leave it as is? Thanks in advance for any advice Cretaceous, Eagle Ford.
  16. First I thought fish, then crustacean and now I'm just not sure. Here is a link to an album with more pictures: http://imgur.com/a/3Art6 Thanks so much for having a look!
  17. The photos were too big so I had to make an album, sorry! http://imgur.com/a/oOw9Z
  18. Id Help Needed. Vert Or Rock?

    Apologize for the fingers in the shot. A friend suggested organic, but the flat circular section on the bottom along with the distant grooves around it suggest otherwise. Thanks for looking! Scientific Name: Unknown Found: North Central Texas Date Found: Spring 2014 Formation: Alluvium Qt / Eagle Ford Size: 1"
  19. This One Has Me Stumped.

    Maybe this one will be obvious to y'all, but the tiny pattern on it throws me off. I thought at first petrified wood, or maybe a fish fin fragment (I have found both at this site before) but when I cropped the photo I noticed that tiny pattern and thought maybe coral could look like that. Any ideas? Thanks for having a look! 1.5" x 2.5" and about a half inch thick. Cretaceous Eagle Ford.
  20. Cretaceous, Eagle Ford, Cenomanian. Thanks for having a look
  21. As always, thanks for any help! This is very small, about 1/2 inch in size. Cenomanian. Eagle Ford. North Texas.
  22. Baculite Or Something Else?

    When I first picked this up I thought it was a worn bacculite fragment but on closer inspection it seems to taper very slightly in the middle, which would be unusual. The rock it is in is Approx. 3" x 2.5" and the part in question is about 2" long and .25" to .50" wide.
  23. Id Help Needed. Boring Clams?

    Could these holes be from clams or organic weathering? Found in the Eagle Ford, North Texas. Thanks!
  24. I can't figure out what this is and was wondering if anyone had any ideas? http://imgur.com/a/axUAQ For some reason I was unable to upload pictures so I had to make an album, sorry.
