  1. Manticocerasman

    Turonian jewel in the chalk

    During the first part of our summer holiday we spent a few days at Cap-Blanc-Nez. The tides and weather weren’t optimal for fossil hunting and lots of tourism at the location didn’t help much either, so our finds were relatively limited. The last day however we found 1 spectacular piece. A little brown spot was reflecting light on one of the loose boulders on the beach. It was a ptychodus tooh peeking out. They are very rare there and this one allone was worth the trip. After the prep at home it only got better, the tooth was complete and of considerable size. Enjoy the pic
  2. School starts next week and my 10 yr old kiddo and I are both trying to extend summer as much as possible. We decided to go on a hunt yesterday afternoon. His focus was on the ever shrinking pools within the creek for turtles, snakes, and frogs, and my focus is on finding a mosasaur. It’s frustrating because I’m finding all sorts of shark and fish material but I have yet to stumble upon marine reptile. There seems to be several types of rock that yields teeth within the creek. The rocks range from dense shell mass, crumbly bits of pulverized things, light shell hash and shale, dark shale,
  3. I have been hunting the Basal Atco member of the Austin group in Central Texas for about 7 years. Others say that it is the uppermost part of the Eagle Ford. I don't doubt that it is some type of erosional zone involving the two. I have found hundreds of fossils in it. Most of them are beautiful reddish brown color. Most of them have been damaged somewhat by paleo-erosion before they were left in their final state. Many Basal Atco fossils are very interesting to me, because I can't find them anywhere else. My first area to hunt back in 2015 was a lot of fun. An exposed bluff where

    Cretaceous sharks

    From the album: Sharks

    Just a handful of Cretaceous species, most from North Texas. The sea that bisected North America ~85 million years ago played host to a diverse and burgeoning ecosystem that supported many species of sharks. It was likely due to specialization that allowed these sharks to all live in the same place and time.

    Texas Creek (Early October, 2021)

    I went on this hunt about two weeks ago, but only am getting around to posting it now. It was a great day at a new spot close to my usual stomping grounds. I was hunting under a bridge the week before when someone walking the path next to it asked if I had any luck - his name was Leo, and we actually recognized each other as both of us have posted about some of our finds on reddit before. (PS - pardon the picture quality, most of these are screenshots from video) He invited me to hunt with him at a spot of his on the same creek close by sometime. I was of co
  6. I made a drive down to a creek in Grayson County yesterday morning. Grayson County has had several inches of rain in the last couple of weeks, and I wanted to see what that might have uncovered in one of my favorite spots. After my misadventure with sticker vines on my last visit to a creek in this area, I was armed with leg and arm chaps, but I didn't think I would need them for this spot, and sure enough, even though it's also more grown up than the last time I visited, the chaps stayed in my backpack. There was a lot more water in the creek than the last time I was here. The wat

    Ptychodus whipplei

    From the album: Sharks

    An odd shark from the Cretaceous of North Texas - these sharks had crushing teeth suited for hard-bodied prey.
  8. I hadn't been out fossil hunting lately. We've been getting enough rain to make me wonder how high the water level in creeks would be, plus spring fishing is so good on Cedar Creek Lake, where I live, that on days where I don't spend a couple of hours on the bicycle, I've just been going fishing. But now we've had a couple of weeks without much rain, so I'd been wanting to make a trip back to Grayson County. I had a doctor appointment in Dallas Friday morning, so I decided I would leave from there and make the drive to Grayson County. It was 10:30 am before I reached this day's cre
  9. I went back to Post Oak Creek yesterday, and hunted yet another part of the creek I hadn't seen before. The water is still really low, so there is less wading than usual although, with the temperature in the low '80's that afternoon, wading wouldn't have been a problem. I torqued my bad left knee first thing as I climbed down into the creek, and was hobbled the rest of the day. I found everything on the gravel bars yesterday, though I did look at some interesting outcrops too. Post Oak Creek is as fossiliferous as any place I've ever seen. I called it after around three and

    Ptychodus mortoni

    From the album: Proudest finds

    This is the largest P. mortoni I've ever found. Found April 16, 2022 in a Texas gravel bank.

    Surprise on Easter weekend

    Spring in my stretch of Texas is brilliantly green, with lush, heavy foliage that reaches tall. The atmosphere is warm, with humid air that has weight of its own, and the open, bright blue skies are occasionally interrupted by fleeting storms. This season of sticky air and vibrant greenery have made me deeply nostalgic for when I was just starting to figure things out and really exert myself in the practice of fossil finding, just a year ago. I spent steamy days romping up and down isolated creeks, armed with just persistence and very little knowledge, making some of my most memora
  12. Hello! I have always loved Ptychodus teeth. But where I hunt they are extremely rare. Are there any good sites in Europe that has Cretaceous Ptychodus and or other shark teeth? I have heard something about seine-maritime in France. Regards - Adriano.
