  1. Unknown

    Was looking through boxes for an ammonite and found what I thought was a starfish arm but now not sure. This is an old find from the Sulphur R. Ozan Form. Any ideas, the back side is featureless and the front not much better Tom
  2. 4 hours in the 93 degree heat, but I found everything AND the kitchen sink! Nah jk, nothing too amazing but it was a good day out there. Perfect time to hit the river. We've had 20-25 in. Of rain in may. 3rd wettest month of all time for Dallas. Now it's dry and hot!
  3. Well the river was way high but I managed to find a few things. This fish head is it X-Fish? The odd shaped bone, a mosasaur scapula or other part? Thanks for input.
  4. I apologize if I posted this in the wrong forum. I didn't feel I had the necessary location info to post in the ID forum. I recently acquired a "large collection" of fossil bones, shells, and corals from an estate sale. The collector lived and dug in Texas, Florida, and a little in Pennsylvania. He possibly dug in other regions but I am going on what was labeled and what info I could get from the estate manager. I walked away with roughly 300 bone specimens (sulphur River), 30 coral/shell specimens, and 200ish fossil shark teeth (Sulphur River). Looks like a life collection of choice pieces as far as the bone specimens go. Included in the collection were 20 spearpoints out of (Sulpher River Area), 50ish small mastodon tusk fragments, and some bones and other odds and ends. I am trying to ID and sort the collection but any a advice on how to proceed would be appreciated! The bones were broken down into boxes labeled (Mososaur bones Sulpher River) or (Mososaur/ other bones SR.). all groupings have been kept together. Collection has awesome vertebrae, fin bones, jaw sections (missing teeth) loose teeth, and some nice coral pieces. I may be able to attain more specific info related to the specific locale and formation but the original collector has passed away. Any advice on how to proceed in processing/ piecing out this collection would be appreciated!. I am staying up far later than I should trying to ID and label everything.
  5. Quick Sulphur Trip

    Went out for a bit today with some friends from out of town. The weather was fantastic and I found a few nice things. Just a few odds and ends. The pycnodont tooth was a nice surprise (sp, anomoedus barberi?) Love finding these fossils covered in crystals. This is a clam with crystal coating. Some nice Molds of different Gastropods Trachyscaphite spiniger.
  6. I "think" the tooth may be a Mosasaur tooth that's split in two but I may be fooling myself so please tell me what you think. All I know about the bone is that it's bone and it's big :-) No idea from what or what kind of bone it is so again, please chime in with your opinion. Thanks in advance for your help, Mark P.S. I have a lot more pics of stuff found at the NSR in my gallery I can't identify so if you like identifying things I sure would appreciate the help. I've been doing this since March this year and I'm getting pretty good at finding things, but still struggle identifying...but I'm gettin there :-)
  7. I checked the National Weather Service website to check water levels for the Sulphur River near Cooper 19/24 bridge thanks to the link that sward was kind enough to pass along to me ( http://water.weather.gov/ahps2/river.php?wfo=fwd&wfoid=18693&riverid=203577&pt%5B%5D=143755&allpoints=143755&data%5B%5D=all ) and it looks like the water level rose to just over 7 feet after the storms and has come back down to just under 2 feet as of this morning. I've been told that the river changes dramatically after each heavy rain so I wanted to know if anyone had a chance to check it out yet. I was thinking about heading out there this weekend but am considering waiting until next week so some of the mud has a chance to dry up. I've only been there twice, but one of those trips was about four days after a fairly light rain and certain parts of the river were still like quicksand. You could make it through, but then it was like having cinder blocks for boots from all the caked on mud. In my previous two trips I spent most of my time sifting (looking for shark teeth...haven't got one yet) and found some pretty good stuff, but I think on my next trip I want to just take a really slow hike from east to west and see what I can find covering more ground. So I'm wondering if anyone's been out there and if so; how has the mud effected walking ability, has the recent rain/rise in water level mixed up the gravel beds very much, and should I go this weekend to beat the rush or wait till next weekend when things have dried out some? Thanks everyone...and especially sward for the great link -Mark
  8. I am the leader for my son's (7) Cub Scout den and we're heading to Ladonia next weekend to camp and look for "fossil gold". We know how to camp, but fossil hunting is new to me and the rest of the dads. Ultimately, we just hope that each boy can find at least one good fossil to cherish and I was wondering if anyone has any tips for a rookie. I grew up across the street from a creek so digging around and getting dirty I can do...knowing where to dig and what to look for is the problem. I spoke with the the Mayor of Ladonia Jan Cooper (who may be the nicest person I've ever spoken to on the phone) and she mentioned a local woman who likes to give fossil hunting tours down the river for kids but she's out of town next weekend so it looks like it's me and the other dads. Jan also directed me to this forum (which is fantastic by the way) since I told her I've always wanted to get in to fossil hunting since I was a kid but somehow life took over and now that I have two young children (5 & 7) I have a second chance to get involved in fossil hunting with them. So here I am :-) Sorry this is so long winded, but I really want to get in to this and know my kids would love to as well because they are fascinated with dinosaurs (just like almost all kids) so I know I would have some partners in my hunting trips in the future...I'll have to work on the wife. Thanks in advance for any help/advice you all can provide. I plan on visiting this site frequently from now on...it's great!
