    Big cat distal radius?

    I found this radius a while back in the Brazos river in SE Texas. This piece is about 6.5 inch long. It looks much like cat radii I see online but I'm looking for other thoughts. @Shellseeker @Lorne Ledger @Harry Pristis @garyc

    Any ideas?

    I found this recently on the Brazos River in southeast Texas. It has me stumped. Any ideas? @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @fossilus @Lorne Ledger

    Cow or bison bones?

    First let me say I did the burn test having never done it before, got the same faint smell from each. Then had to burn some of my hair for comparison, omg that was horrible! So I'm not sure ad far as that. All these came from part of creek in Dallas county that is very close to Trinity river, it is QAL on one side QT on the other. I know the smaller bone isn't cow just thought it was interesting. So I'm ready for my lesson in bones!

    What's left of rugose coral?

    I have zero experience with corals, so just going by pictures I've seen on this guess. This was in creek with Alluvium/ Eagle Ford mix, I spent about an hour prepping it to expose the top and smooth side of what was a mound with vague outline. Hope I didn't screw it up too much!
  5. Got a little luck on Easter/Birthday. Finally found a good sized Mos vert. I’m assuming it’s a Tylo? ozan form 80-85 mya

    Is this legit? Seems too perfect. Egg.

    My father in law found this while poking around on our land were clearing in Wimberley, TX. I’m blown away by it, it’s so perfect I am perplexed. Is this real? I don’t know of anyone who’s been out on this previously non-cleared property that could have planted anything. What do y’all think? IMG_6501.MOV

    PSA Field Trip

    The club went to the Brownwood Spillway and Wilson Clay Pit Saturday. Weather was spectacular! I decided to skip the spillway and head straight to the old clay pit. Had the place virtually to myself for the first two hours. I headed for a spot that has always panned out with good crinoid material and some nice teeth. I had joked around with the other members that I needed to go there and find the complete crinoid calyx and arms I saw in a dream. Well I found it. But you know how things are always bigger in dreams...

    Large mammal vertebra

    This is about the most complete vert that I’ve found. I’m horrible at identifying vertebrae, but I’m going to stick my neck out (pun intended) and suggest that this is a bison cervical vert. Found on the Brazos River in SE Texas
  14. I found these on a sand bank next to the Brazos River. I believe they (the brown ones) are fossilized bone as they are quite heavy but I’m not really sure as I am quite new to rocks/fossils. I was wondering what type of the bone the weirdly shaped one is (joint?) and whether the second to last picture is of a plant fossil. Thanks in advance!
  15. I was walking along the many trails in the Sugar Land area near the Brazos River when I found a wonderful beach with many pieces of petrified wood. I'm very new to this world of fossils and rocks but I was quite intrigued by a piece of petrified wood with what I believed to be some fossilized sap (amber?). I was wondering if anyone could tell me more about this rock or the round piece of bone I found as well. Any input would be greatly appreciated! -Blxbrry

    ID backyard fossil

    Back yard find, along w/ other coral types. Clay soil w/ broken limestone, common in San Antonio. The lower portion has a few clear coral-type cells, Opposite end, usually w/ radial pattern in rugosa, is smoothed oval dome. Can't find similar type in variety of fossil sites online.
  17. I found this snail fossil in a gravel road, and was wondering what species it is. I already did some research and I think it might be a species of Anchura, but I'm not sure.It's shell coils and I'm pretty sure the tip of the shell is gone. The shell is just a bit over 2 cm in length.

    Fossil Road Trip - Georgia, Texas

    Both my brother and I celebrated graduations this year - my brother graduated from college and I graduated from law school. In celebration of our graduations, we decided to take a 13-day road trip to see some of the United States after I had taken the bar exam but before I began work. Our journey ultimately took us through Atlanta, New Orleans, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, Oklahoma City, St. Louis, Dayton and Pittsburgh, before returning home. Our days were jam-packed, with us often not arriving at a hotel until 9/10pm, but along the way we did find some time to make a few quick stops to coll

    Mystery item, North Sulfur River

    Hello! We went on a long drive to the North Sulfur River last week, spring break! It did involve a very cold overnight stay in a tent, in a field very close to some cows. Such a different site, and learning how to look was half the fun. It seems as if all home schooled children are visiting the site too, at the well known parking lot and access near Ladonia. We came away with some devil's toenails, two ammonite steinkern? pieces showing sutures and a rather large piece of rudist (more than 1 foot across, with some crystals, which promptly split in two on t

    Horse, of course?

    Dear Fossil Forum, We have continued to visit the Brazos near Houston, and it has turned up horse. Teeth, a proximal phalange, and what I think is actually not horse, but a tapir calcaneus! My latest find is a vertebra, and it looks like thoracic vertebra 18 (T18). But, in comparing it to a photo of a modern horse example, the facet for rib attachment is smaller in proportion, and lots of other details look a little different as well. Does anyone know of good resources for researching fossil horse ancestor vertebrae? Or know if there is variation in contemporary vert s
  22. The Paleontolocigal Society of Austin monthly field trip was last weekend - we planned to hit a couple of spots in Brownwood. Well it's a bit of a drive from San Marcos, so I decided to make a mini two day trip out of it and stay in an Air BNB (a great option for traveling these days - no shared air source like a hotel!) . So instead of just the two sites on Saturday with the Society, I headed up to Lake Jacksboro for some solo hunting! And boy was it solo.....not a SINGLE person at the site! I was astounded. Had the whole place to myself for HOURS! It was a beautiful day - 70s and sunny. I c

    Echinoid ID Help

    I am hoping that someone can ID these echinoids for me. I do not remember where I got them from and I do not know the location that they were found, but I am thinking Texas. This first group of three I believe that they might be Phymosoma sp. , but I am not sure. Her is the other one that I am hoping for an ID on. Thanks
