  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

    Cretaceous fossils ID

    Two pictures of some finds from my recent trip to the W.M. Browning Cretaceous Fossil Site. I'm pretty sure the right tooth in the first pic is crocodilian but I'm thinking the left tooth might be mososaur. Any ideas? Second, the bottom pic is what I believe to be 2 pieces of corprolite, any ideas on this one as well? Thank you
  3. The best mosasaur material from my Holden Beach, NC trip! Top left two bones are prognathodon jaw fragments, top right three bones are vertebra, bottom left three bones are ribs, lower right two bones are from the flipper. For scale, the two largest mosasaur teeth are ~5cm each. Btw about a third of this stuff ppl had walked over or picked up and tossed aside..

    Russellosaurine tooth

    From the album: Squamates

    This small tooth is likely from a juvenile small, early mosasaur. In just a few million years, these aquatic reptiles would diversify and grow to large sizes.

    Tylosaurus tooth

    From the album: Squamates

    A tooth from a large mosasaur that inhabited the Western Interior Seaway during the Late Cretaceous. Tylosaurus was an apex predator with thick teeth that allowed it to predate on anything in its ecosystem from large turtles to sharks. This particular tooth has clear feeding wear on the tip.
  6. I made a trip to a different spot on the North Sulfur River this morning. I had been to this spot one time last year, but an unforecast rain shower showed up and turned the river into such a muddy mess that I turned around and left without finding anything. With a 100 degree high forecast for today, I didn't figure rain would be a problem. I found some of the usual things you expect to find at NSR, Hamulus worm tubes, a gastropod, a perfectly preserved complete bivalve, some interesting bones, and lots of bacculites. The only bacculite I brought home was the one in this photo, with

    Myrtle Beach Cretaceous Finds

    Hi all, I was recently at Myrtle Beach and collected some fossils from around 4th Ave. N. where a drain pipe is being installed. I found my best Hardouinia mortonis and several nice Exogyra costata so I know the Peedee formation is present there, I am unsure of other formations, as I found these in a dredge spoil pile on the beach, however I did find some things that are a bit puzzling: The first item is a vertebra of some kind. What throws me off is that the cells are not filled in with limestone like the usual Peedee bones I find, I am wondering if this may be newer, maybe Pleistocene? Any

  15. I made a drive down to a creek in Grayson County yesterday morning. Grayson County has had several inches of rain in the last couple of weeks, and I wanted to see what that might have uncovered in one of my favorite spots. After my misadventure with sticker vines on my last visit to a creek in this area, I was armed with leg and arm chaps, but I didn't think I would need them for this spot, and sure enough, even though it's also more grown up than the last time I visited, the chaps stayed in my backpack. There was a lot more water in the creek than the last time I was here. The wat

    Mosasaur tooth

  17. Hi All, While prepping a mosasaur vertebra I uncovered a few markings I'd love some feedback on. They were underneath a layer of hard matrix which might explain why they fossilized. Here's a zoomed out view: Top one (#1) is approximately 3 mm and the lower one (#2) is ~4 mm. #1: I am thinking cast of a worm burrow? #2 I really don't know for this one. Any thoughts as to what this might be would be appreciated. Thanks,
  18. Hello all! I recently rearranged my collection so I figured this would be a good time to show some fossils! I usually hang-out in the New Jersey Cretaceous but I have been collecting fossils for over 25 years and have found some pretty cool specimens of creatures from many different eras, That said, my collection is mainly focused on the New Jersey Cretaceous, so let's start there. These are my displays for New Jersey Cretaceous non-reptile fossils. My favorites aren't actually fossils at all but rather casts of some of my favorite finds. The crab, Costadrom
  19. 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

    Finds of the day

    From the album: NSR - May 27, 2022

  21. I went back to Post Oak Creek yesterday, and hunted yet another part of the creek I hadn't seen before. The water is still really low, so there is less wading than usual although, with the temperature in the low '80's that afternoon, wading wouldn't have been a problem. I torqued my bad left knee first thing as I climbed down into the creek, and was hobbled the rest of the day. I found everything on the gravel bars yesterday, though I did look at some interesting outcrops too. Post Oak Creek is as fossiliferous as any place I've ever seen. I called it after around three and

    NJ Cretaceous Partial Vert ID?

    Found in NJ Cretaceous stream. Any suggestions? Looks like a partial vertebrae. Possibly Plesiosaur? Or even Dino?
