  1. Took a trip today to one of my new Ozan spots that is rapidly becoming a favorite, despite the headache it is to reach. Although the finds are few and far between, I've always come out with something I haven't seen before. It's definitely been testing my ID skills. I didn't come out with too many things, but I've got a couple I would like to get some informed opinions on. First up is a regular urchin. I've found a few fragments of regular echinoids washed out within a small stretch of creek. Though this is the third I've seen, its the first of this appearance and first to safely ma
  2. First: Happy Fossil Day! I've been waiting to post my most recent report so someone has something new to enjoy reading on National Fossil Day. This past weekend Cole unexpectedly didn’t have to work on a morning that I also had off! He asked me what I wanted to do while I was grocery shopping at 6am for fruit snacks, jerky, chocolate rice cakes. I told him to take me to Fort Worth area! He asked me how serious and I got him the big bag of jerky and offered to pay for the toll road fee. xD I messaged my insta friend who lives out there and regularly hunts heart urchin
  3. Well, I have to say, not having a full time job due to this pandemic has been extra good for my fossil hunting! I may not be making much of a living, but I'm living it up finding fossils! Fortunately, as someone pointed out to me recently "it seems like Texas is paved in fossils". While this may not be 100% accurate....it's pretty close! Within a gas tanks drive I am lucky to have MANY MANY fossil hunting spots available to me. And when November rolls around (honestly, the nicest month in Texas- mild temps and no Cedar Fever Allergies to contend with) I try to get out as much as possible. And

    Echinoid ID wanted

    Hello again. About 2 years ago I found the following Echinoid (I think) in the northern province of Drenthe in the Netherlands. I was actually looking for interesting rocks and at first I thought that's what I had picked up, a piece of rounded/worn flint or chert. On closer inspection it looked like something that was once alive. Actually thought it was a long dead starfish, but after some googling I 'm fairly certain it's a type of Echinoid like a Conulus or maybe Salenia. Some background info: the area this was found was once covered with glacial ice that or
  5. Good evening, my curiosity is getting the best of me. I know someone amongst this knowledgeable forum can give me some insight on this odd piece. I found this on a gravel bed where I have found xiphactinus vertebrae and various shark teeth. The creek runs through Travis county, Texas. Thanks
  6. I made an unexpected trip to Parker County to meet my daughter halfway between Abilene and DFW to pick up my wife and son who were arriving home after a trip to Maine. I arrived an hour or so early and knowing I was in a fossiliferous zone I started thinking where I might find a cut or two to kill some time and have some fun to boot. I know some retail outlets in the area are cut into the hillsides so I started circling a few and checking out the back lots. I finally located a retaining wall behind one of the locations and behind the retaining wall I found a 200' strip of Walnut Clay. The site

    Is This A Gastropod?

    Need an ID on the long spiral beneath the salenia urchin (i think Leptosalenia Mexicana).....Is this a gastropod or a cephalopod or something else? Found in the Comanche Peak formation of Comanche Peak in Hood Co. TX.....Many tylosoma and other gastropods as well as oxytripodoceras, clams and oysters of all sorts and the usual heart urchins........Thanks in advance for your help.....

    San Antonio Glen Rose Finds

    Not much of a story-teller, so here are my better finds from my first trip to the glen rose formation (said to be the salenia zone) Whole gastropods and crushed heart urchins littered the ground all around the exposure, but i was particularly interested in a very ornate regular echinoid i'd never seen in person before, Leptosalenia Texana! My better finds: gastropods, neithea, tube worms, heart urchins, leptosalenia, porocystis algae balls, bivalve casts, and some oyster bits. My Leptosalenia: An unkown gastropod (?) covered in tube worms: And my bonus, two small coenholectypus appr
  9. January 2, 2010 The Lower Cretaceous Glen Rose Formation (Kgr) of Central Texas is roughly 110 million years old. Its classic exposures look like man-made steps or solid blocks that are occasionally interrupted with softer rock or marl. The formation is typically divided into upper and lower units by a layer of Corbula fossil clams. Just below this layer was the destination I wanted to find for my first fossil hunt of the year. It takes its name from the isolated occurrence of an ornate fossil sea urchin - the Salenia texana zone! A bright dawn had not yet thawed the frost when I headed to m
