  1. An assortment of interesting finds from our hunt today. This was in the late cretaceous Ozan formation (also called the Lower Taylor Marl, I believe) around the Austin area, in central Texas. I'd like confirmation or correction on some ID's 1) I'm thinking Mosasaur tooth for this one, but since it's small enough to maybe be fish, I'm checking anyway. If measurements end up being important for any of these, I can provide them. 2.) I'm thinking Cretolamna for this shark tooth, but it looks like the cusps have two peaks, which is throwing me off. Any thoughts?

    Which Ptychodus?

    Hey ya'll Here's a small Ptychodus that my step brother found while we were hunting a gravel bed. Still in the matrix... you can say I'm a little jealous. I'm thinking, based off the ID guide that's pinned, that it could be mammillaris. Let me know if more or better photos are needed.

    Head Scratcher NSR shark tooth

    I got a few NSR shark teeth and this one has me stumped. It’s small at 6mm and not complete but I think an ID is possible given it’s unique features. It has distinct folds and the cusp has an odd bend. I was wondering if it could be a Cretodus tooth of some odd position. That’s my best guess at the moment. I don’t think it’s Goblin or Sand Tiger. Ozan Formation NSR Texas.

    Unknown Marine Reptile Tooth?

    Hi Everyone, I recently found this tooth (in situ) and can't seem to place it. I haven't personally found another like it and after looking through various resources I am even more confused. It doesn't look like the other mosasaur teeth I've found except for perhaps a very thin platecarpus. Any feedback on an identification would be awesome. Thanks! 1: 2: 3: 4: 5: 6:

    Tylosaurus Tooth

    Identification: Mosasaur teeth can be difficult to assign to a species. However, given the size of the tooth, it must be from T. proriger - the only Mosasaur in the formation large enough to produce this tooth. Notes: Shows feeding wear (pictured) with mostly complete enamel. Uncommon find for this formation/locality. Identifiers: This identification is supported by Michael J. Polcyn (researcher specializing in the evolution of Mosasaurs) of Southern Methodist University, Dallas, TX, USA. Citation: COPE, EDWARD D., 1869, Remarks on Holops brevispinus, Ornitho

    Vertebra ? North Sulfur River

    I'm a rookie. This is my second post. I've been out on two "expeditions" and made some interesting finds. When I picked up this fossil?, I noticed it was caulked on the back side, I found that perplexing. North East Texas, Fannin County, Eagle Ford Group, Ozan Formation, North Sulfur River Bed. It appears to be a vertebra. Please help identify. Thanks!

    Unknown - North Sulfur River

    Thanks to all of you good fine folks for taking a look what I found on my two "expeditions" to the North Sulfur River. I look forward to the next expedition. I've got some others, but this will be my last request for ID . . . no doubt it will be a rock! Thanks for a great day.

    Tooth, North Sulfur River

    I'm a rookie. This is my first post. I've been out on two "expeditions" and made some interesting finds. North East Texas, Fannin County, Eagle Ford Group, Ozan Formation, North Sulfur River Bed. It appears to be a fossil tooth. Please help identify. Thanks!
  9. Okay, this may be just wishful thinking, but a girl can hope, right? For your viewing pleasure is an Upper Cretaceous coprolite from the North Sulphur River in Texas, Ozan Formation, Talyor Shale. This little beauty has some unusual fish remains. Any chance this is a caudal fin from a coelacanth? The bones are pretty substantial compared to other fish bones I've seen in coprolites from the area. It does contain scales that are good sized and pretty transparent, with kind of a fingerprint pattern. Obviously, they may not be from the same prey item. Can anyone tell me if these are indeed coelaca

    Clueless in Texas

    A friend of mine was hunting the N. Sulfur River in Texas and came across this piece of ? Late Cretaceous Ozan Formation Any ideas as what this is?
  11. I went fossil hunting at the North Sulfur River (NSR) in mid December with @believerjoe and Cathleen, @cgmck a local fossil hunting buddy of mine who is a semi-retired environmental geologist.. I’d been trying to work out a time to go hunting with Joe for close to 6 weeks. He had extended the offered sometime after I had met him at the Ladonia Fossil Day event on October 20th. He offered to take me to teach me how to spot mosasaur and bone material in the NSR. We are both on the Dallas Paleontological Society Facebook group page and crossed paths on there quite frequently so we were acq
  12. I was out at the North Sulfur River on Saturday. I found a number of cool things. This one is a mystery to me, but it seems very rare and pretty neat. I’m not sure it’s even really identifiable as to a class or order, but I thought I’d ask. It needs more prep, but I’m not sure how much more there is to uncover. Above you can see what look like 2 legs hanging down and possibly One on op. Below is the same thing invented. Another pic from a different angle. I can’t get any closer on the small details. I can see the texture of what I believe may be

    Is this a piece of coprolite?

    Yesterday I went hunting in the North Sulfur River in North Texas. Could this be a fragment of a coprolite? Pic 1 and 2 are same pic different lighting. I was trying to bring out the button in the center of what I’m calling the bottom. Pic one brings it out, but it is grainy. Pic 2 you can zoom in better. The center kind of has a pinched button look. # 3 the top. It looks like clam shell fragments possibly. The next 3 are side views. The whole thing is dome shaped. @GeschWhat

    North Sulfur River ID rudist?

    I had the day off yesterday and headed out to the North Sulfur River. Found absolutely nothing of note except lots of wild hog wallows, lots of spiders, the usual petrified wood and a couple Cretaceous bone chips. Had another one of my stupidity inspirered adventures with the heat. It was 100 out there and to make it worse the water was also 100. Made it out in one red bug laden piece. Recovered, ate lunch and glutton for punishment that I am headed back out at a much easier access point. While I was there I found something, which I don’t know what it is. The only thing I can possib

    Modern or fossil clam?

    I went out to the North Sulfur River (NSR) yesterday and went down a particular feeder creek. Along the creek I kept finding clam shells that looked modern, but not like any fresh water clam that I’ve ever seen before. I have never seen this category of preservation of clams in the NSR or elsewhere in Texas for that matter. The formation out there is Ozan of the Cretaceous. If they are Cretaceous they are quite remarkably well preserved. There are 2 varieties of clams as best I can tell. There is the smaller one that is smooth and then the larger that have a wavy or ruffled sh

    NSR post rain finds

    Well I almost don’t want to post after seeing some of the amazing finds posted from the NSR recently, but had what for me was one of my better trips. I don’t make it out there often but like many was lured by the recent rains and the hope of finding something great. I will say that I am always happy to get out on water and the weather could not be better than it was this week. I hiked a mile or so both ways and funny enough, as usual my best finds were found where everybody enters the river. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I play a game like a scavenger hunt every time I go. This trip

    Hématite or a fossil?

    I found this a few weeks ago in the North Sulfur River and would like to know if it is a fossil of some sort or just hématite or some other iron rich material. There is a fare amount of iron rich material in the NSR, but most of it is smooth and not bumpy like this. I’m inclined to think it’s not a fossil, but would like to confirm before I discard it.
  18. I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I had a very nice one with a very full house. I had 5 guests staying for 4 nights and 5 days and then 16 people at my house for Christmas dinner. I’m a single mom with 2 kids who I only have custody 50% of the time. So most of the time my house is pretty empty and lonely. So I really enjoyed having it full and happy. I got board after everyone left and the kids were with their dad. So, despite the below freezing temps I headed out to a new location. I grew up for quite a few years in a very remote part of the Ozark Moutains in Arkansas. Harsh, col
