  1. Hey forum! I had fossil fever sooo bad since I was away in Iceland. First place I wanted to hit up was my favorite place for baby shark teeth- Post Oak up in Sherman! A lot of people swear its over picked but it still remains a favorite & fruitful place of mine close by. Anyways, a LOT has changed since Ive been gone it looks like! I decided to stop by 2 of my favorite spots in POC with a bucket of gravel to take home. The rain is coming in and we now have an areal flood advisory/watch ( I told you guys I both took and brought the rain back with me! ) so I just got my

    Post Oak Find...Tooth?

    Found this tiny object sorting Post Oak Creek, TX matrix. Looks like a tooth to me, but not confident in that assessment. Any help? Is it a tooth or just a tooth-shaped rock?
  3. Sherman turning Post Oak Creek into fossil park By Lauren Rangel, KXII Channel 22, July 8, 2022 Yours, Paul H.
  4. Howdy! I recently went to Post Oak creek, and ended up with more matrix than I can immediately use. Rather than let it sit unsearched, I figured it was worth a shot to post some up for trade here. Each bag has a pound of material in it, and they have proved to be very productive. I’ve found numerous ptychodus teeth, a (poorly preserved) lobster carapace, shark and fish vertebra, various bones, coprolites, and of course, lots of other shark teeth. So there’s lots of different things that can be found. I’ve got around 25-30 lbs I’d be willing to trade. I am primarily interested in verte

    Post Oak Vertebra

    I recently collected about 300 pounds of matrix from the Post Oak creek in Sherman Texas, and I’ve since been searching through it when I get the opportunity to. I’ve found quite a few vertebrae, all from fish, but I found one last night that has me scratching my head. It has some matrix that has solidified and will need to be removed, but I thought I could post it beforehand in case anyone had any thoughts regarding the identification!

    Goblin or something else

    Found this little tooth this weekend. I’m sure it must be a S. raphiodon but the cusplets come directly out of a broader based blade. Not like the others I usually find. May just be because it is a juvenile?
  7. Let me know when you get tired of me posting but I am so excited about how enthusiastic my son is about our hunts. He has only recently started to enjoy crawling creeks with me and can spend the whole day of time allowed. We have been out the last two weeks and have found quite a few teeth. Have found probably a quart of brokes and a few nice ones. He loves to get an official count after every hunt. Yesterday yielded officially 492 in three and a half hours. Found a couple of quality teeth as well as a P. latissimus that is broken and a heartbreaker. Still on the hunt for a complete one for t

    Cretaceous Shell

    Found this shell while in the creek this weekend. I have never found a shell like this in all my time in North Texas creeks so this seems out of place. Has matrix stuck to it and inside that matches what is present where I hunt. It is fossil and has some spots that look like calsite or some other crystal. Any ideas?

    Finally Interested

    Had a great day with my son yesterday. Started the morning at Lake Ray Roberts for a nature hike with a group looking for animal signs with the local ranger. It was a beautiful morning and finally 70 degrees. Saw tons of great animal signs and of course the kids loved looking for skat. Saw a group of deer which is rare. After the walk I told my son we were going to swing by Post Oak Creek to resupply my matrix bucket. To my surprise, he wanted to stay and look for teeth, and man is he good at spotting them. In between his playing with the other kids he found 31 teeth.(I know because he kept co

    A Ptychodus first for me

    Found this partial tooth today. Thinking it is Ptychodus decurrens. A first for me.
  11. I found these and Post Oak Creek in Sherman I think their teeth of some sort - or maybe pieces of teeth - there are like little nubs. Thank you.

    And the cigar goes to?

    Cigar tube was just the right size for the mornings finds. Contains 112 teeth and pieces. Post Oak creek, three hours of finding and explaining to "others" how to find. Nice place to do the booty scoot, you sure find some tiny stuff. Screening gets the bigger stuff but allows the tiny stuff to filter through. Contains: Ptychodus whipplei, Cretolamna Appendiculata, Scapanorhynchus Texanus, Squalicorax Kaupi. It will wind up going as a gift. I'll get back with some other recent finds from around my part of local Texas. Jess B.

    Post Oak Creek

    Had a nice haul at POC today. Need help with the bone ID. I'm guessing mammal. Thanks

    NSR-Post Oak-Mineral Wells

    It has been a while since I posted last. School has been hectic, and I have been out of the country as well. I was blessed with the opportunity a few months ago to go to some of the best hunting areas in Texas, all of them places I had wished to visit for years. My mother was a real sport crawling down to the rivers, avoiding the snakes and leeches... We arrived in Ladonia, and drove by the river to get an idea of what the hunting would be like. We skipped on going to the park, knowing it would be well picked over, particularly since the last month it had been flooded, shifting eve

    No Idea?

    Found this today in my bucket. It is a tooth but I have no idea what kind it is. Very interesting patern on the enamel. Would love feedback. I am having difficulty getting a good picture.

    Post Oak

    Well kiddies I am going to try Post oak creek for the very 1st time tomorrow. My folks moved to Denison recently so when I go see them there are certainly a few spots I can range around to from that launching pad. Anyone else headed there tomorrow? I'll be going there solo. Randy Rogers

    Fish Mouthplate?

    Any idea what this is from. Found it today at Post Oak Creek. Looks to be a part of a mouth plate of some sort. Thanks in advance for any help.
