    Heres the bigger picture…

    So I’m at a point where I think it’d be best to just show you the entire thing that I’m currently looking at, aside from the tons of pieces that I’ve set aside all around this pit I’ve got now. I don’t expect this to sway anyones opinions but it’s very likely the last post I’m going to leave until I can finish cleaning around the edges of it—whatever it is, or isn’t, potentially. So I guess I’m asking now, is this also typical for limestone? Again, I’m on the far northwest edge of San Antonio, pretty much on the helotes hill country city limit—just a couple of miles east from government canyon

    What and how?

    Before I get stoned to death for posting this here (lame pun intended)…let me just say that I honestly have no clue what I’m looking at here but I am not suggesting, nor am I of the mind—that it’s a fossil, but it was just so strange lookin’ that I couldn’t help my curiosity, so here I am asking for opinions on what caused this to form and what it’s composed of most likely (if anything other than limestone, that is…. (-__-). location- far nw San Antonio, tx , just outside the foothills of the hillcountry (helotes, tx) Again, I do want to apologize if this belongs in

    What’s this?

    Pulled this from roughly 3-4 feet deep in my backyard on the far west/nw edge of San Antonio. Found a rock bed as I was digging. Odd because until then the soil was actually soil…it was dark and was easy to shovel. I’ve dug holes all around my property and at many other spots around this area and I’ve always hit a very solid layer of limestone before even getting a foot deep. So 3 feet was noteworthy. And that was about 8 months ago. It took me that amount of time to uncover this one. It’s a hair shy of 2lbs4oz/ just over 1kg. Any thoughts on it?

  7. Mrs PreK Teacher

    Help out a teacher!

    I found hundreds of these in San Antonio and would like to have a few interesting facts for my 5 year old students. My best guess from pictures online was they are exogyra? And they are from the Cretaceous period? I also do not want to give them the wrong information. Can anyone help? The pictures I am sending are all of just one fossil.
  8. Hello! I just moved to San Antonio, TX. I brought my giant clam collection with me. Please me out please before saying this post doesn't belong here. So, my biggest giant clam shell broke in half during the move, and I want to repair it. I'd assume its a lot like restoring fossils, which is why I'm in need of your help. Here are my questions: #1: Can I restore a modern giant clam shell with fossil restoration products? #2: If #1 is yes, then what would be the best adhesive/restoration product for restoring tiny and big, light and VERY heavy pieces of seashell?
  9. Last weekend, I made the trip down to San Antonio to tour and interview at a school. Though the drive wasn't all that long, it was enough for me to decide to take advantage of the opportunity and make a visit to one of the most famous Lower Glen Rose roadcuts in the Northern San Antonio area. In recent weeks, I have finally hopped onto the echinoid train and begun rapidly expanding my urchin collection. To keep the ball rolling, my goal was to find at least one decent specimen of Leptosalenia texana. Luckily for me, the layer I was heading to has been dubbed the "Salenia texana zone" for a rea

    Are these fossils?

    My backyard has a large area where it's mainly rocky, meaning you can't really dig. Separating it from the "nice" grassy side of the yard is a hill. My daughter and I have found fossils there of bivalves and snails. I've attached some pictures of what I found today. But my question is regard to these tiny, circular, flat pieces that seem to cover the hill (first 3 pictures). I'm thinking they're a fossil of some kind, but I'm not sure. Can anyone help?
  13. I recently took a trip to my hometown, San Antonio, Texas, to visit family whom I hadn't seen since before the pandemic. Ever since I caught the fossil bug last year in Maryland, I've been itching to make it back to Texas to explore. This trip's purpose was to catch up with family, but to do so, naturally, I had to catch them up on my new hobby! Two places were easy to add to my itinerary -- both my Mom and Dad have seasonal creeks in their neighborhoods, which I was able to walk. The creeks in my Mom's neighborhood expose Albian rocks from the Edwards Group.

    Texas fossil shell

    I'm visiting family in San Antonio, Texas, and have been doing a little fossil hunting as well, including in a nearby creek. Based on a local geologic map, I believe this creek mostly exposes the Edwards Group (Albian age), though there appear to be some younger (Cenomanian age) rocks from the Del Rio Formation mixed in as well, based on an Ilymatogyra arietina shell that I found a couple of days ago. This creek isn't very fossiliferous. In about 3 hours of searching, I've only found a single I. arietina and a few small shell impressions in rocks. However, today, I also found the rock below an

  17. Howdy. I found this gastropod in Comal County, Upper Glen Rose formation, and I'm drawing a blank. I'm unable to find any sources that show or describe a species with this ribbed morphology. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Does anyone know what this is found in backyard VID_20210410_094153213.mp4 16180656678183378705414437170539.jpg
  19. Just had some recent rain in San Antonio so I decided to go out to a tried and true location. North of San Antonio on 281, there are multiple road cuts where interesting things can be found! Since I joined the forum, I have been amazed at the photos that people take, while the fossils are still in the matrix. I am normally so excited, I forget the documentation. Not this time! I found a few Salenia texana (sea urchins) and a Heteraster texanus (heart urchin). Some before and after pictures have been added.

    Pecan gap shark teeth

    A couple hours searching a new to me exposure of pecan gap chalk turned up some pretty nice stuff. First a couple of shark teeth, I don't know the identification. Actually this one might be a fish tooth: I love the color on this one. Also got a lot of fish scales and a small fish vertebra. Vertebra: Scales: A good sized ammonite. And a UFO. An unidentified fossilized object, if
  21. Hey they’re all. Once again thank you so much for helping me to ID the fossils that I find. If anybody can help with this one it would be greatly appreciated, for my nephew and I are trying to figure it out. Thank you. We found it inside the loop of 410 in San Antonio, in a dried up creek bed.
