  1. Skin? Hoof? Fat and Bone? Help..

    Ok, last one I promise. I have found a few pieces of these fossil bone fragments with an odd type of material attached to them. Rather odd texture, sort of bumpy. My first thought was some type of skin or hoof. I am puzzled. Any ideas? Found in Post oak creek, Grayson Co. Texas Lower Austin, upper Eagle Ford Gulf series.

I'll attach more pics below

  11. Post Oak Creek Texas Finds

    Hi all. Firstly I would like to thank everyone for this amazing resource. I just joined the forum today and am excited to start sharing. My wife and I recently moved to north texas from upstate new york. We did a lot of hunting up there and have continued our passion since our move. We had a great haul last weekend, but there are a few specimens that I have never seen before and I was wondering if anyone could help identify. Please accept my apologies up front if these are common as we are definitely still learning and we are not familiar with the deposits here in texas. I believe the deposit is cretaceous. We found many more than this but as I said these are some of the more unique finds. If you need closeups let me know! Thanks again!
  12. Hi all! I just joined this forum and want to thank everyone upfront for such a great resource and community. My wife and I recently relocated to north texas from upstate new york. We fossil hunted up there and since we moved to texas have found some great specimens. It has been amazing having the opportunity to hunt new deposits! Last weekend we went to mineral wells and post oak creek...both places we found from reading this forum! I think a lot of what we found is quite common but definitely very different from what we are used to in New York. We found shark teeth, shells, corals and some stuff we cannot identify...We even found what looks like a piece of native american pottery (reddish square on right side. Thanks again for looking and let me know if you see anything interesting. We are eager to learn!
  13. Is this Bone?

    Ok, so I found this in the creek and being a newbie I didn't know what it was so I brought it home. I really thought it was like a rusty old drawer pull. That's the shape it had. I had my son split it and it seems like bone. I hate that I deleted the picture of it before we broke it, but I tried to put it back as best as I could to how it looked. Any ideas on what it is? Thank you.
  14. Petrified Wood or Rock?

    I found a few pieces of this in a creek in an area where the water flows pretty good. Can anyone tell if it is petrified wood or just rock? Found in Post Oak Creek, Grayson County, Texas. Thank you in advance.
  15. Shark Teeth Identification 2

    I have several shark teeth from Post Oak Creek in Grayson County, Texas and I was hoping to get help with identification. The period is Cretaceous. Thank you in advance for any help.
  16. Tiny shark tooth

    So a little over a week ago I found the tiniest trilobite. So dang small I can’t begin to photograph it. Last night I found the tiniest shark tooth (at least I think it is shark) I’ve ever seen. It was in gravel I brought home from Post Oak Creek in Sherman, Texas. I may have said this before, but I never thought I’d call a shark tooth adorable, but it’s pretty adorable if it is a shark tooth. I have no idea what kind it is is. I’m not sure I can get a high enough quality pic to get someone to help me ID it. But here it is just to share the cuteness. It might be 5 mm long. A bit closer up. The ridiculous thing is and it’s quite laughable, it’s the only shark tooth I have ever found in the POC after 5 trips! I even sift and sieve.
  17. T-Rex Tooth?!?

    Okay guys! I've been talking my little boys fossil hunting at Post Oak Creek in Sherman since they let out of school for summer. Trying to get them interested in it and FINALLY!!! My 8 year old(least interested) found this. Please tell me this is a t-Rex tooth!! We are all pretty stoked regardless but would love some insight. Thanks!
  18. Post Oak Creek

    Went to Sherman, TX for some shark teeth. Found lots of shark teeth, oysters, one mammal tooth, one ptychodus tooth, and two vertebrae.Had a great trip and hope to go back. Will post some photos for Id in a little bit.
  19. Post Oak Creek

    I am planning to go to post oak creek sometime this month. Is there any specific tools I should bring? I have done some research and have some ideas of what to bring but I would like some expert advice. Any other things I should know?
  20. A long pointy tooth (fang?)

    I went to Post Oak Creek this weekend. Lots of fun and lots of fossils to ID and enjoy. The wealth of info on this site has proven immensely helpful in helping me ID my finds. Thank you all! I am having trouble with identifying this tooth. If you have any ideas please let me know. Any help is much appreciated!
  21. unknown fossil i think

    I found this while searching for shark teeth at Post oak creek and i haven't been able to identify it yet.
  22. Post Oak Mosy Tooth

    Spent the day on the creek with my son today. Could not have ordered up a better day to go. Spring time came to Texas this week and even had to break out the sunscreen. Found some nice teeth and the usual brokes. My son found a beautiful Ctretodus lateral tooth and a really nice S. raphiodon lateral and I to my surprise, found the first mosasaur tooth I have ever found at Post Oak.
  23. Hi y'all, Here are the finds from 3 separate half day trips to Post Oak Creek during the first weekend of Feb and from last Saturday. One of those days was spent hunting a new to me part of the creek that seemed to have more trash and glass than fossils. That day I decided to make a move to a more productive part of the creek to collect some gravel that I had promised my nieces so they could do some fossil hunting at home. Also I collected some for myself. Last Saturday @Buffalo Bill Cody and I went hunting. It's was warmer and I noticed several bass swimming in the creek. I'll have to bring my fishing pole for the next outing. The week before last I went canoeing on the Llano River for 4 days where I had the pleasure of seeing some interesting fossils that I'll be posting below. Bare with me. I'm posting from an IPhone.
  24. Fish spine find, fossil or not?

    Found this at Post Oak Creek. Definitely fish spine and is hard as a nail but not sure what it is from. Guessing catfish but hard to tell what is modern and what is fossil sometimes. Any clues?
