  1. I always have trouble telling if jaws are real or manufactured. As far as I can tell this looks real (but incomplete). Let me know if I'm missing something. Looks like there's some bonus verts in the matrix as well.
  2. A couple of weeks ago, @Jackito, his son, and I took a trip out to one of his favorite Eagle Ford sites. For those of you who are familiar with Carter's posts, this was once the famed location of the so-called "giving rock", so the bar was set high for the day. I've come across some of Austin's eagle ford material in the past, but it was always only the leftovers of what had been washed through miles of rushing creek water. This was my first time getting to poke through the source material, so I was eager to see what could be found. The water was low and the temperature mild. I was thankful I

    Holden Beach Diversity Of Fossils

    Recently got back from a trip on Holden Beach, and just WOW. Words can't describe the uniqueness of being able to find Mosasaur teeth next to Megalodon teeth. The recent Hurricane brought in many new fossils and I had quite good luck. Here are some photos of the trip, I will post a picture showing all of my best finds shortly, but for now enjoy! First, here are some of the Squalicorax pristodontus teeth I collected. These were relatively common.

  8. The North Sulfur River finally got some rain last week, and I headed out there yesterday morning to see what I could find. I was hoping there had been enough sun that it wasn't still a muddy mess, but that wasn't the case. It was a tough slog, hiking through all that mud. It made fossils tough to spot too, and I didn't find a lot. But I still enjoyed my day in the river. This photo shows what much of the riverbed looked like. Are those footprints from a large bird or small dinosaur?

  10. With time running out before the start of the school year, I decided to spread my attention across three DFW formations to get a little taste of what each has to offer. Instead of shooting out a handful of smaller topics, I've decided to combine my trips into a single larger post. I wouldn't say any individual find is a jaw-dropper or museum-worthy, but they, all together, give a nice glimpse into what each formation can yield. In order from oldest to youngest: Goodland This adventure took place in Oliver Creek with the Dallas Paleo Society. It's a regular s

    Moroccan Mystery Vertebrae

    I was looking through the auction site for the 100th time this week, and saw what are supposed to be Mosasaur vertebrae. Apart from size, they don't look like any Mosasaur verts I've seen. These look more like very large Enchodus verts to me. The slab is 19"x7". I'm not buying them at the moment. I'm just curious as to how correct I am.

    Is this an Enchodus jaw section?

    Hey all Is this little fossil a partial Ejchodus jaw? The piece on the left certainly looks like one of their famous fangs (although I'm not 100% I'm correct) but the bits to the right do not look like the little needle teeth, or teeth at all. The bone texture flows in to those bumps. Scale is in cm
  13. I finally took a trip to the North Sulphur river last week. There have been a couple good rains so I was hoping that would uncover some stuff. The last couple of trips in 2021 were terrible. All muddy and picked over. This trip was still pretty muddy and little in terms of quality mosasaur material. However I went low and found a lot of smaller material. I wonder if the recent muddyness of the river is due to the lake construction or if the river just hasn't had enough rain lately? Is picture 2 an enchodus jaw? I believe the pictures of item 3 are of a really chipped pi
  14. I drove down to the North Sulfur River Friday morning. It was my first trip to the new temporary fossil park. This part of the river was my favorite even before the new park. But it looked very different in 2020 than it does now. It's a muddy mess right now. There were clean washed gravel bars everywhere in 2020, but now the gravel bars are all covered with dried mud and clay pieces. I wondered if the diggers and sifters had the better plan Friday, but I didn't bring my sifter, so I made a long hike away from the bridge, and spent my time searching gravel bars. With so many clay pieces coverin

    Enchodus Jaw

    Last weekend we have been to the coast of France to look for fossils in the chalk. We found the usual ammonites, but I also saw some fish remains sticking out of a boulder. At first I thought to leave it since it looked very brittle. Natalie convinced me to take my time to try to extract it. She put some paraloid on it in the field and I removed the fossil with a knife. At home she consolidated the matrix and prepped the piece. She sure was right to take the fossil home , it turned out to be a really nice Enchodus Jaw. (moral of the story, always listen to the missus

    Enchodus teeth?

    I picked up some teeth labeled as Enchodus fangs but there are a couple that don't quite look like the rest. Are these Enchodus teeth and located in the jaw behind the fangs.... or not Enchodus at all.... or something else?! Scale is CM. I am unsure where these were found but based on a lot of other fossils sold there I'd guess Morocco. What gets my attention is Enchodus fangs have a distinctive shape and a carina. These teeth have 2 cutting edges and are obviously not the typical fang shape - the darker tooth more so. Sorry about the pics, it's an old Samsung
  21. I bought this tooth together with two other teeth as ''Smilodon teeth'' last year. Thanks to this forum, I found out that the other two teeth are actually Enchodus teeth! I think this one might be something else. Someone on Reddit told me that it could be a crocodile tooth, but I have little to no knowledge about crocodile teeth. I understand if it's difficult to identify, because the tooth isn't complete. It's 2cm and the seller couldn't give me information about where this was found. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    Big Enchodus tooth

  23. I'm fairly new to collecting/hunting fossils. I bought these as Smilodon teeth last year, but I think they are Enchodus teeth. Can someone confirm? Thanks! From left to right: 5cm, 4cm, 2cm

    North sulphur river mosasaurs and fish

    Hi guys, I recently trade for these, and I was wondering if it was possible to assign them to a species thanks 1. 2. 3. looks like a bit of fish rostrum? 4. best preserved one, the enamel has regular flat edges, like a polygon I guess 4. enchodus libycus? thanks
  25. I made a trip to a Navarro County creek yesterday morning. This is the same creek I visited a few weeks ago, but I was a little bit further downstream yesterday. It was still a Wolfe City formation area. It ended up being one of those days where I spent more time hiking and exploring than I should have. I was looking for likely outcrops in this creek, and just didn't find any. I eventually started checking the unlikely looking ones closely, but never did find any fossils that way. I finally spent some time crawling gravel bars, and found a few things there. I'm still a relative newbie at this,
