    JacksonFarmer NSR finds

    This will be my first attempt at identifying and photographing my collection of NSR finds. Please correct any of my mistakes. I can easily modify the photo captions. Sadly I haven't figured out how to italicize the font on my photo editing app yet. The only phosphatic mold of a bivalve that I have found. It's a dead ringer for the same specimen photographed in the NSR Fossil Hunter's Guidebook. Current consensus is that the Guidebook is wrong for labeling this A. argentaria.

    My "small" collection - microfossil ID

    My small collection - not sure how to even begin to identify these. These all came from seiving about 3 gallons of gravel from the Eastern portion of the NSR. Any help on identifying these would be greatly appreciated!

    Globidens alabamaensis

    From the album: Ozan Formation

    Globidens alabamaensis, NSR Campanian, Cretaceous Mar, 2023 A shell-crushing mosasaur not uncommon for the NSR. They first showed up in the Early Cretaceous, shortly after the disappearance of ptychodus from the seas.

    Anisomyon sp.

    From the album: Ozan Formation

    Anisomyon sp., Fannin Co. Campanian, Cretaceous Aug, 2021 One of my earliest finds and I had no idea what it was. It was included in my first post on this site and identified by @DPS Ammonite. Thanks!

    Tylosaurus proriger

    From the album: Ozan Formation

    Tylosaurus proriger, NSR Campanian, Cretaceous Mar, 2023 A fantastic mosasaur crown from the renowned NSR. Complements my rooted tooth well as that specimen is beat up around the crown.

    Wintermester fossils 2023

    Hey forum! It’s now spring break for me and we’re out road tripping and camping all over Texas Since I’ve got time to burn between destinations I’d love to reflect on some cool fossils Ive found over the past few chilly months! *So first of all I want to throw this out there: I followed heart and I started college! Last year in summer I found out everything about how I’ve been a brain trauma victim with amnesia and when I came back to Texas after some time in Iceland the first thing I wanted to do was go back to college to be a paleontologist like I originally planned to y

    A Classic Hunt on the NSR

    I think North Texans will relate when I say that now and then, the urge to take a drive out to the NSR and spend the day hunting some Campanian gravel bars can spontaneously take complete hold. I had one of those moments just after the series of heavy rains and powerful winds our region encountered some days ago. Previously, my luck with weather at the NSR had been rather poor. Each time, the temps were either nearing a hundred degrees or only just above freezing, making a full on adventure crossing muddy waters and crawling atop unshaded gravel beds too much to handle. I had yet to experience
  12. I was finally able to take a trip to the NSR in 2023. We had a good 11 foot rise so I was optimistic. My whole goal this trip was to find a point, I couldn't find one to save my life, I however did find a few cool fossils. I don't know if i just don't have the eye for it or if i am just looking in the wrong places. The last two pictures are of an item im not sure about anyone have an idea? Possibly a set of fused vertebrae with the two end ones broken off? The haul The vert The mosasaur thing The in-situ

    Squalicorax kaupi

    From the album: Ozan Formation

    Squalicorax kaupi, Fannin Co. Campanian, Cretaceous Dec, 2021 A favorite of mine from the NSR!

    Finds from North Sulphur River

    Hello, everyone! I went hunting along the North Sulphur River yesterday (before today’s nasty weather), and I found some fossils and what I am almost positive is an artifact. Could someone please help with IDs, if possible? Pictures #1 and #2 are of the same bone; I found the circular striations in the 2nd picture particularly intriguing. #7 (the artifact) is broken at the base and is fairly thick at the point where it is broken.

    Rare Find For NSR!

    I had a good hunt at the North Sulphur River Texas. I found a nice variety and possibly the first Pterosaur limb bone ever found at NSR.
  17. After no rain for many months we got a big 13 foot rise last weekend. I was hoping that would wash away all the mud and uncover many great fossils. Unfortunately it was still few and far between. The mud has been halfway washed away, which is halfway to where we want it, but the fossils are still not uncovered. Here are a few of the things i found: A couple decent but small mosasaur verts. Also the in situ shots. Decent fish jaw. Not sure which species though. A cool shell from the grey shale zone. All I eve
  18. So a couple of weeks ago, I, along with my younger brother, decided to embark on our first field trip with the Dallas Paleontological Society. The destination was Moss Creek, a decently sized waterway on private property that feeds into the NSR. Just like in the main river, we were seeking a red layer exposure of the Ozan Fm (though I read that this red layer is different from the one at the river). This site is famous for its abundance of marine microfossils, namely shark/fish teeth. One of the people on the trip was a researcher (Shawn Hamm) who is currently finishing up a paper on this very
  19. I went to the North Sulphur River twice in October with little luck. The first time was after a rain that I thought would get a big rise but only got about a 1 foot rise. The second time saw about a 5 foot rise but each time the rain did nothing to wash away all the mud. It was easy walking because the river was so low and dry but no gravel bars as they are all covered in mud. I went to two different parts of the river as well as the feeder creeks and it was the same. Here are a few pictures of the little I was able to find: Some worn chunckasaur, petrified wood, pyrite sun (cool b
  20. It is always fun for me to read the fossil hunting trip stories . . . ~ So, I’m goin’ through the after fossil hunt pictures. I’m takin’ a long look at a fossil in this one picture. I figure it’s not a fossil, but next to it may be a real one. I thought . . . no way. I’d found a similar fossil on an earlier hunt, so I compared it to the fossil in the photo – dead match. What luck. I told self, “I’m goin’ back in and I’m gonna find it.” I rested a day, geared up the next, dropped back in day three. I had an idea where it was. Searched all o
  21. My last fossil hunt was May 23, so it had been a while. I was hopeful that with all the time, some fossils might show, but I never think I’m gonna find em’. Monday (9/12) was shapin’ up to be a perfect day. High temp of 84 degrees, dew point and relative humidity in the 40s with a slight southern breeze . . . nice. River height less than one foot. If the weather held, I was goin in. Fossil huntin’ isn’t “fun” for me. It’s a mission. It’s remote. It’s a long hike in and a long hike out. I train for it. I hike several days a week. The training is mission critica
  22. 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?
