    I believe these were found in the Lake Texoma area. Any suggestions on what they are and how I might remove some of the sediment would be much appreciated. Thank you!

  3. While staying in North Texas I made stops to a couple local creeks such as Fossil Creek in Fort Worth. I've been trying to narrow down the identification of some ammonites and other things but despite the popularity and attention the creek receives I have had a difficult time determining what formations outcrop in the specific area. It's complicated by the fact that I'm not used to the stratigraphic characteristics of the formation of the area. I strongly suspect most of my fossils to have come from the Weno based on stratigraphic descriptions. However, I have read one source that leaves the W

    I found my dog chewing on this in our backyard after he had been digging. I'm curious as to what it may be, and whether or not I should let him keep it! It is roughly 7 centimeters wide at the base and 13 centimeters long. Found in Fort Worth, Texas. Any information is appreciated! Thanks!

    Jobsite Find

    Good afternoon to all. A colleague and I were doing some exploring in a creek bottom on our jobsite located in Fannin County, Texas. The creek we were walking in drains into the North Sulphur River. As we were walking we noticed a large bone sticking out of the creek bank. We decided to grab a couple of shovels and do a little more excavating. We came across multiple bones. As you may see in one of the pictures, we had to do a little digging in order to reach much of the bones, they definitely weren't just lying in the creek bank. I will upload more pictures with measurements. I ki

    Need help with ID please...

    I’m in the twilight zone apparently...I know how ridiculous this seems, but the only thing I can find that remotely seems to match this thing for size and shape is titanaboa. I’m open to other suggestions. This was in my back yard in Fort Worth, Texas...relatively shallow - about a foot to the top of it. We are in a rocky area and are within 30 ft of the highest elevation in the county, about 150 ft above the average for the city. I can’t find a tape measure to put next to it, but measured with my iPhone and it’s 29” long, 13” wide, and about 9” at the highest point. Seems to weigh in the

    Denture Clam?

    I found this in the creek next to my house a year or so ago and had no idea what it was. I recently saw pictures of “denture clams” and I thought it looked similar. Any input?

    Need help identifying this fossil

    My neighbor found this specimen in a gravel parking lot at his work in Fort Worth, Texas. Is this a Crinoid stem piece? The hole goes all the way through.

    Fort Worth creek fossil ID

    I found all of these today at Fort Worth creek. I Identified most, like ammonite, nautiloid, gryphaea, bivalves, echinoids, but on the picture 2, what is that? Is that a oyster or a clam? Fourth picture is a mass gryphaea bed.
  13. Lagartixa


    Found it at the Trinity River in Fort Worth Texas. Is it Pleistocene and wich bone and animal is it from? About 10 cm.
  14. It's been a few years of hunting for me now. What began as a spontaneous trip to North Sulphur River, spurred by childhood nostalgia, has become something of a gnawing beast that constantly nibbles at the corner of my consciousness. What will the weather be like this weekend? When will I have another three-day break? Is the car road-trip ready? Do I have the right foot ware for the locale? Is that unprepped fossil an ammonite or a nautilus? When will I finally find my first mosasaur tooth? And on and on... I've often wondered if this is a pre-midlife crisis. The time I get to spend

    Looking for Fossil Hunters

    Hey Everyone! My name is Hogan and I'm an Associate Producer at Rugged Productions. I'm currently doing research for a new show concept and I'm looking for the best and most unique fossil hunters / collectors / buyers / sellers! Please let me know if this reminds you of someone (or of yourself). Thank you!

    My first trip out alone

    Got a chance to get off of work early so I hit a new creek I wanted to check out. I'm glad I did. I was only out for maybe 2 hours. These are my first ammonite and echinoid finds and now I want more!! I'm not use to creek hunting as I'm use to road cuts and mountain terrain

    Help identify

    I found this about 30 years ago in a creek by my house. No one has been able to identify it yet. Any help would be appreciated.
  19. I found a site where everything is a fossil. Specifically, I could gather 1,000 heterasters in an hour, and there's shelves of ammonites. (See pictures below.) I have two questions: (1) Is a site with a crazy high concentration of heteraster (and associated species) and ammonite fossils out of the ordinary, or are there lots? (Know what I'm saying?) (2) When you find a great site, what do you do?

    Inspiration Point find

    I'm in the DFW area and went to Inspiration Point yesterday. Can anyone tell me what this is? Is it worth packing home in my luggage? I have some other mysteries that I'll post later. Have to get ready for work!
  22. rwise


    This was found in south Tarrant County, (Fort Worth) TX, 6 to 8 feet deep, from oil and gas pipeline dig, so I don't know the formation. Need help identifying if this is a track. As always, thanks in advance for your help.

    Ft. Worth, Texas - Wood And Wood?

    These are from a creek bed in Forth Worth. I believe the first one to be a piece of petrified wood. I like the color and shine. I thought the second one was wood too but the surface as a very different look with fine lines and the side of it has all kinds of lines without an apparent pattern. Cheers, Sergej
  24. Here's a couple of items. I usually pick up anything that looks interesting... This first one was found in a Ft. Worth creek bed. The second one was also found in a Ft. Worth creek bed. I have been scraping in on it a little. I have reached the image limit so I will post some others in a reply below Cheers, Sergej

    Ft. Worth Creek Finds

    Hi, I registered for the forum well over a year ago but due to other things occupying our time have not had time to post anything yet. In the mean time, we have been going on short fossil hunting trips in the Dallas -Ft. Worth area and there's a bunch of items we found that we know or think 'are something' but do not know exactly what. Here's the first two. These were found in a creek in Ft. Worth. The first one looks very much like the gastropod Trichotropis Sumardi on Lance Hall's gastropod page. Here's ours: The second one is different but could also be some form of gastropod? What int
