  1. Lone Hunter

    Shark teeth ID please

    Large tooth found in Grayson marl, shame the enamel is missing, since root is not all there not positive about ID, Cretolamna? The tiny tooth missing cusp from Eagle Ford and haven't been able to find match but then I'm horrible with teeth.
  2. Lone Hunter

    Couple of bones

    First bone is modern from Trinity river so this for the sake of learning, assuming it is a Tarsometatarsus, my question is how can you tell if bone is from waterfowl and how hard to determine bird species? The dark bone is from Cretaceous Woodbine and I'm not familiar with preservation on them, this one is funky, scratch it with fingernail and it's powdery, might be modern and hoping it's not too worn for ID. Thanks for help!
  3. Lone Hunter

    Need ID help please

    This came from creek in Woodbine formation, hoping it can be recognized and wondering what it's attached to, bone?
  4. Cretaceous Eagle Ford, #1 I know it's worn and broken root but both edges are serrated, Hemipristis? #2 Both Enchodus or the smaller one possible Xiphactinus? #3 Had hard time getting details, assuming it's some kind of tooth, bony fish? Ptychodus?
  5. Lone Hunter

    Curious odds and ends

    Some things from Post Oak creek not sure if they're something or not, with exception of #3, pretty sure the one with ridges is echinoid spine and other one is fossil just don't know what. Really intrigued by whatever the yellow is, don't think it's man-made, it doesn't melt anyway.
  6. Lone Hunter

    Strange structure

    I don't even know which direction to go, geological or biological, and given the weird concretions and burrows in Eagle Ford don't know where this fits in so looking forward to answer
  7. Lone Hunter

    Coprolite, gastropod, or other?

    Found this in creek, Eagle Ford, at first thought it was part of gastropod but after closer inspection it started looking more like coprolite now I'm undecided so I will leave it up to the TFF court.
  8. Lone Hunter

    Funky stumpy shark tooth & an unknown

    Both of these from Eagle Ford Post Oak creek matrix, I didn't even recognize the tooth on first look, not sure ID is possible but curious is it very worn or just emerging or what? The other item looks like it should be something but may be ironstone, just not sure.
  9. Various teeth from Eagle Ford, Cretaceous, I'm a long way from recognizing teeth since I don't find them often so appreciate the education. My guess for first one would be Mako, it also looks very much like the tiny one in #3, second one I'm not sure at all and wondering what made all the marks on it? Last group I think there's an Echnodus, and cone shaped one looks like alligator or it's just wishful thinking.
  10. A few things from Post Oak creek, Eagle Ford. I don't have a shark tooth like this so easier to ask for ID on first one The tiny little vert I'm assuming is fish, not expecting more specific , this is the smallest one I've seen. Last item I have no idea, maybe fish related?
  11. Lone Hunter

    Ptychodus whipplei?

    These look easy enough to ID but this is just my 2nd tooth so would like to confirm I got it right, or not. Found in Post Oak creek, Cretaceous Eagle Ford.
  12. Lone Hunter

    Ptychodus tooth?

    This was found at same location as Rockwood's tooth, Grayson marl Washita group. I'm still getting familiar with things here and this is first tooth I've found and hopefully it's Ptychodus?
  13. Lone Hunter

    Fossils in coalified pyritized wood

    The new Eagle Ford exposure in the creek we've been hunting is littered with various stages of petrified and coalified wood in the marl, Dale found a good size limb and chopped out some chunks which contained fossils. This is new to me never seen fossils in wood before, Dale has bigger pieces with bigger fossils and thinks thier some kind of boring clam like Toredo worm, but these look nothing like those to me and I want more details. These are completely shelled and how can something round and smooth bore? Dale's pieces have ones with 'balls' an inch across. On the side of big piece is 2 ob

    Tiny black balls and unknown object

    This particular piece of marl from Grayson caught my eye because of the little balls covering it then I saw the odd grooved chip, it's very thin and I'm not recognizing it as shell. So what are these things?
  15. I have usually looked for the bigger things at this site but this time focused on the small and in a different area. Didn't even realize what this was until I got home and put on my glasses and went through things, it's not in the best shape but hopefully someone can make out what it is. This was in Grayson marl Washita group.
  16. Lone Hunter

    Shark tooth ID please

    Found this little guy in piece of marl I was fixing to chunk until I noticed all the little black dots. Almost have it out but decided to leave it since it's so small, hope it's enough for ID. On the flip side of tooth is another object, about same size, before I bother cleaning anymore thought I'd see if it's anything, looks like it should be Tooth was in same Eagle Ford marl as the bivalves shown.
  17. Lone Hunter

    Possible large sponge?

    I've had this for a couple of years and never got around to figuring out what it is, has quartz druses all over and very heavy. Came from same creek I find most of my fossils in and no telling it's origination, have found everything from Cretaceous to Permian, and recent deposits.
  18. Lone Hunter

    Pycnodont tooth?

    This came from Eagle Ford creek where I found the shells in last post. I think I can finally tell difference in tooth vs phosphate nodule, I think
  19. I was wondering if anyone could help with some NSR IDs? I also have one item that looks like a tooth from POC. It is Item 1. All other items are from the North Sulphur River. Item 1. Possible tooth? Item 2. Calcium nondual? Item 3. Pleistocene turtle? It is extremely thick and hard. Item 4. Some have speculated it as turtle plastron bone or Plesiosaurus paddle bone. Item 5. Some type of Geological crystal nondual? Item 6. Coprolite or just rock?
  20. Had a blast last week busting up marl in the creek with Rockwood's help . I was amazed to find a chunky plate filled with beautiful shells in addition to gobs of gastropods in the area and Gryphea. Got thrown off trying to ID by color duh, finally shape of striped ones clicked, flat sides, Inoceramus sp.? The tiny brown one Inoceramus cuvieri? And the little round ones pinnaeformis? The tip is broke off one but they are all the same. Limestone Inoceramus maybe labiatus or sp.? So not sure about Gryphea, 2 are in piece with the big shells and one of them is round, the other right underneath

    POC & NSR Day Trip- Nov 2021

    I turned today into a fun adventure! Today I was to go to jury duty but was dismissed at 9am. Since I had the day off from both my job and school I decided to tell the spouse to grab my hiking bag out of the closet and get my bucket out the back yard. The best thing about where I live in TX at the moment is that I literally live smach dab in the middle of 2 famous fossil hotspots in north Texas- both are about the same distance. The day was new and I was free. I wanted to try them both! So I did. NSR first. Today was perfect- not too hot not too cold. Clouds! Breeze and shade.
  22. This might be as interesting as it gets as far as worm tubes, so my question is if they are just tube casts why don't they all look the same? I have only found ones that are usually all greyish and look the same, these almost look like actual worms. Would different species have different tubes?
  23. rwise

    Ptychodus tooth?

    Found in TXI cement plant (MMI) in Midlothian, TX. Please help me identify. Ruler is in centimeters. .
  24. First one I want to confirm ID, it's still a work in progress, Calycoceras Tarrantense? The other one I just wanted to share, I haven't seen such unique preservation and view of the siphuncle and think it's facinating.
  25. Lone Hunter

    Mandibles, beaver and raccoon?

    Need some confirmation, or correction, on couple jaws found this week, same creek, does contain Pleistocene material. Pretty sure modern raccoon, but the other not positive it's beaver, no orange teeth, and I've never found a bone this dark in this creek. Could it be anything else fossil, like baby giant beaver?
