  1. Brandy Cole


    I scrubbed as hard as I dared to try to remove the light brown particulate on this to make the articular surfaces clearer, but not much luck. I'll give it a shot as is. Not sure exactly what I found. I actually passed it up twice thinking it was chert until I got a closer look and saw osteoporosity along one edge. My best guess is epiphysis, but I'm not sure what from.

    Equus or Pre-equus Tooth?

    I found this molar in a south Texas gravel bar. Pretty sure it's equus since there's no isolated protocone (although there is a tiny pebble stuck right in the join, haha). I just noticed that it's a bit smaller than all my other equus teeth, and the pattern seems simpler. I looked through "Fossil Vertebrates of Florida" and couldn't quite make a match with either equus or pre equus examples. MSCH from root to parastyle: ~65mm APL length of crown enamel: 24 mm TRW width of crown from mesostyle to posterior protocone: 25mm. First pics are the tooth, then a couple o

    Mammoth Tooth--Juvenile?

    I was super excited to find this over the weekend because I'm pretty confident this is my first fairly complete mammoth tooth (although an earlier misidentification tonight is keeping me humble haha). But it's a lot smaller than I expected. Juvenile? Baby? Or can an adult Columbian mammoth have teeth this small? Please excuse the moss. Haven't had a chance to clean this one up yet.

    Partial Gomphothere Molar?

    Had some productive hunting and found this in a gravel bar. I'm hoping I've found my first gomphothere or mastodon tooth! Or at least a part of one. I've looked at several threads about differentiating them, but I still had a hard time identifying this for certain. Am I headed in the right direction or could it be something else? It does look smaller than I would have expected. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Shark teeth from UVALDE county

    These teeth were collected on a private ranch in Uvalde county. I have tried finding resources about shark teeth in Uvalde county but have turned up blank. What formation have these come from? What species are they?

    South texas fossiling

    I took advantage of the nice weather on my last couple days off and went to a couple sites around town, in no particular order here's the most interesting things I found. First a worn ptychodus anonymous tooth from the eagle ford shale. next what I think is a pachidiscus travisi from the basal pecan gap chalk and a half of a graptocarcinus texanus carapace from the buda formation in a location I had never found anything particulary interesting before. Quite worn but still recognizable And while normally one finds echinoids and ammonites in the georgetown this time I only f

    Bone ID. Old or Newer?

    Ok, still new at this fossil hunting thing. Went poking around today in an Alluvial Creek bed in the Goliad formation of Duval County, Texas. We found an ammonite here a few weeks ago and were searching for more when my daughter found a bone in the side of a bluff, about 6’ to 8’ above the creek bottom which is always dry here. It seems slightly petrified but not hard as a rock. It is very brittle. Not sure if this is a cow from 50 years ago (or 10 years ago) or something more exciting. It was buried under a lot of pebbles and sand on the side of the Bluff. We’re still out here searchin

    Cretaceous ammonite

    Found at the contact between the pecan gap chalk and Austin chalk. I'm thinking some kind of scaphites but trachyscaphites spiniger which is known from this formation doesn't look similar to me. As always, thanks! PS @Uncle Siphuncle

    Buda ammonite and unknown

    Found these in the Buda formation. in situ ammonite, it's less than an inch wide. and this unknown fossil. Maybe a echinoid but doesn't seem to to have a pattern like echinoids I'm used to. Reminds me of the algal fruits of Porocystis globularis found in the glen rose. Any help is appreciated

    First fossil of the (past) year

    Haven't really been able to do much fossil hunting between my job and a herniated disc that meant I couldn't bend down for many months now but finally felt good enough to go to a fairly easy location. This is a spot where the Buda formation meets the del Rio clay. Not sure which this came from but I think del Rio is more likely. Apologies for the image quality. My light died and I had to use a flashlight
  11. Any chance that the first pics (round stone with snails) below is a coprolite? I’m new to this so is there any benefit of cutting one of these in half or will I just ruin it. What about polishing? Also the second pic, any ideas what that may be? Both found in an alluvian creekbed in the Goliad Formation southwest of Freer, Texas. Thanks again!
  12. Ok, I’m new to the forum and to fossil hunting. What was supposed to be a hunt for pretty rocks with my daughters to polish in our new rock polisher quickly turned in to our first fossil hunt as we found several possible fossils. Both of my daughters (8 and 9 years old) now have the fossil hunting bug. We dont know anything about them and would appreciate any input. Some of these may just be rocks but they piqued our interest. These were located in deep South Texas in Duval County, south of Freer. All of these were located along the sides or very near a large creek bottom. T
  13. Drove south of San Antonio to Tilden, Texas to check out our favorite petrified wood location. My wife and I found some decent pieces. Some are very “tumbled” from the creek but other pieces have retained their wood characteristics. Bonus is that I found a scraper type tool that is probably as perfect as a piece I have ever found. Last trip of 2020.
  14. This was a small plate that I found years ago off of US Highway 290, west of Austin, Texas. It is about the size of the palm of my hand, loaded with these micro fossils. I looked a long time, several different trips, before I found one this nice. It is a very thin layer about 1/2 inches thick. These fossils separate the lower and upper Glen Rose formation. They are very small, about 3 mm.
  15. Howdy fellow fossilers. I moved to Corpus 3 months ago with my wife and I've always loved hunting fossils across the US. Let me tell you, I can tell this is a great spot. I've seen Steve71's posts on mammoth teeth and Pleistocene bones, bison, mastodon, tapir, horse teeth etc. I'd really love to find some of those things and if anyone knows any pointers for stuff nearby (not by san antonio) I'd be forever in your gratitude. In the meantime, here are some photos of fossils I found roaming the beach at Port Aransas.

    Is this an egg or a rock?

    My husband found this on the side of the road in South Texas. It really looks like some sort of egg to us or is it just a strange rock? It's about the size of my fist.

    ID help tooth horse?

    Could you please help me identify this tooth? It was found today on the beach in South Texas. It’s not in great shape like others I have found in the same area. Also are the markings just normal wear? Measures 2.75 inches long and 1 inch wide. Thank you so much for your help!

    4 month round up

    I was gonna call this a monthly round up but I just realized it's been four months, adjusting to new job has had me messed up. I've only gone to 2 locales in 4 months and I'm having withdrawals. Anyway, I stopped at a outcrop of buda formation for about 30 minutes while the family went shopping, the buda had given me 2 graptocarcinus carapaces previously so I was looking specifically for that, I found what I thought was a carapace but it turned out to be a chela with just a nub of a dactyl, unfortunately the finger got broken off somewhere in between getting it out of the ground and getting it

    Just a rock?

    Is this just a rock or a fossil of some sort? I know nothing about fossils, but am getting good at spotting them on the beach. I am an avid sheller and beachcomber and stumble upon Pleistocene aged fossils in South Texas. This piece looked different to me. Thank you so much. It measures approximately 1 inch by 2 inches

    Identification help please

    Found on the beach in south Texas.

    Shark centrum modern or fossil?

    Just got home from a day trip to the corpus Christi area, very tired so might be a bit loopy. Found this on a shoreline sort of near the lighthouse park in Port Aransas, given the environment I don't know if it is actually a fossil that was maybe dredged out of the channel or modern. I think it is a shark centrum but I've never found one before so I could be wrong. Scale was a last minute thing, it's 28 mm long. Around an inch and an eighth.

    Identification and age of Tooth

    This tooth was found on a beach off the channel at South Padre Island. I am a shell and artifact hunter and have been finding fossils of late. I don't really know about fossils and have joined this group to help me learn and identify what I find. I have three fossils that I would love help with identification and I will post separately. Thanks so much!
