  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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.

    Animal, mineral, or plant?

    I found these in a creek bed in southern Ellis County, Texas. But there are also lots of them in the North Sulfur River. What are they? They have ridges on one side and are smooth on the other, just like a shell, but they are flat. They vary in size and thickness. The top images show the ridged side on the left and the smooth side on the right. I see plenty of them by themselves, but they are also found in other rocks, right alongside what are obviously fossils, like in the bottom image.
  5. I have enjoyed my trips to NSR and Mineral Wells, but they are a long enough drive from Gun Barrel City that I'm wanting to find closer places to hunt, for days when I don't have all day, or just want to stay closer to home. There isn't much to be found here in Henderson County, but Ellis and Navarro counties, just to the west, are both known to have fossils. I spent some time looking at google satellite images, picked out some likely places to look at, and did some scouting yesterday. It had rained the day before, so while I looked at several possible places to hunt, the only place I ac

    Shark Teeth?

    Hey guys... First post here. I live around the Victoria area here in Ellis County. I've always been interested in our local history, but my interests have recently shifted to a little 'older' part of our history around here, more specifically when we were covered by warm-water oceans. I've spent a good portion of this summer walking creeks searching for SOMETHING, ANYTHING, and have came up empty handed. It's my understanding that the Sharks teeth and vertebrae will mostly be located in a specific sediment layer, and apparently I'm missing that. Can anybody help me out with ide

    Tiny Aptychus or Bivalve Steinkern?

    Yesterday I hunted an Upper Santonian Austin Chalk site in Ellis county between downpours of rain. This was my first time at the site. I was looking around a pile of rocks with some boulders mixed in and found this on one of the boulders. It is tiny, whatever it is, about 1 cm wide. Now I must admit that I am more familiar with the fauna of the Upper Coniacian Austin Chalk but to me this looks more like half of the aptychus of an ammonite than a bivalve. Since an aptychus was made of calcite I believe that it would be preserved in chalk, though the actual fossilized material is gone and this i
  8. In March of this year I found a heteromorphic ammonite that has had me curious ever since. So yesterday I finally sent an email about it to a local ammonite expert, Ron Morin, who is associated with the Dallas Paleontological Society. I had a correspondence with him in May of this year as it related to him identifying my Phlycticrioceras trinodosum heteromorphic ammonite which I recently added to 'Collections'. That's when I first talked to him. Then at the Dallas Paleontological Society's Fossil Mania event in October, I was talking to Roger Farish about my unidentified ammonite. He recommend

    Hunting for the Niobrara Chalk

    This Sunday my father and I were hoping to take a trip to the Niobrara chalk and check that out and see what we can learn from it. Is there anything you guys can relay to me in terms of places to look or getting land permission? I'm just looking to try to find people to call, places to go, etc. just trying to get a feel for fossil hunting outside of the Fort Hays Limestone and Greenhorn Shale. Thank you so much for any and all info, even on just general paleontology in Kansas
