  1. 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
  2. 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
  9. 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

    Hello guys i have the best one in my collection this is perfect enchodus tooth i ever have size 7.1 cm anyone have largest than me ?
  11. 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
  13. 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,
  14. There have been a couple of small rises lately so i went out hoping to stumble upon something nice. Unfortunately the water did not rise enough to really tumble the gravel but it was still nice weather at least. Here are some pictures of my hunt a couple of weeks ago. As for my hunt a couple of days ago I don't have any pictures because i was skunked for the first time ever. No fossil or artifacts at all. I tried some of the large creeks, the ones that are basically as large as the river itself, and all i could see was dried up mud. I'm not sure if the creeks just have less material in them or
  15. I live near the western edge of Henderson County in Texas. It's a fairly flat area with few outcrops of any kind exposed, and even when they are, they aren't very fossiliferous. The county just west of me is Navarro County, and it does actually have some formations that hold fossils. But I haven't had much luck finding anything in Navarro County. I keep looking, since it's so close. I did a long hike down a Navarro County creek yesterday. For most of the day, it looked like another of those trips where I just don't find anything. But one thing I've learned about fossil hunting is that even aft

    Enchodus jaw

    Hey all This has popped up on a local auction site, I have a couple of Enchodus fangs and a caudal fin in my collection and this jaw section would be a nice addition - if it passes the scrutiny of the experts! Is it Enchodus? Can you spot any repairs? I would assume based on the very fragile nature of the jawbone this is in the original matrix? The ad doesn't have much detail - I've added the only 2 pics supplied --------------------- Enchodus partial jaw fossil from Khourigba, Morocco, North Africa. Upper Cretaceous Period - 90 Million Years Old. Jaw itsel

    Thick Enchodus Palatine NJ stream

    Found in NJ Cretaceous stream. Thick Enchodus jaw or ??? Thanks.
  20. Hello guys, I should probably start this post by mentioning that I'm not a vertebrate guy. So if anything I say is wrong or laughable, this isn't my best subject. Today I bought two jaw pieces with no label for a ridiculously low price. I think they're Enchodus from Morocco, but I wanted to verify. Also, there are some various verts, shark teeth, etc. in the matrix, I think the visible shark tooth in piece #1 is Squalicorax, and I'm not sure about the one in #2. And the large vert on #1 might not be identifiable, but I thought I'd ask. Are there any major red lights? Any serious re

  24. Hey all, Was looking through some older finds today (from Big Brook NJand was curious on if anyone could shed some light on these. The one tooth I originally thought to be of enchodus, but upon looking closer I am not 100% sold. I could see it being an enchodus worn down or something new entirely. In regards to the second, my thoughts originally were potentially bone fragment from potentially sea turtle? Any input helps!

    Hunted a rural spot in the NSR today with my son. We had a great time. I posted my best find of the day...I.D.'d by Google image recognition...pretty impressed that it found the Enchodus jaw, wow! FYI-The two small tooth fragments are from previous trips to NSR.
