  1. Hey y'all! I am a geology/paleontology student at Texas A&M and I am researching the Austin Chalk. I was wondering if anyone had any good Austin localities near the Waco/Temple area or anywhere near 35 all the way up to Dallas. I’ve researched a few old papers and found a couple of spots but I figured this forum could be a good outcrop resource as well. Would love some help! Thanks so much.
  2. A fossil hunting buddy informed me today that the Waco Research Pit is now permanently closed to the public. I called the Army Core and confirmed. Such a shame. Thankfully got to visit a few times. Also a real shame since the Army Core can research the same Del Rio fossils in the dam spillway area (also restricted) as they see fit. You'll be missed, Research Pit.

  12. I've been out to the Lake Waco Research Area (or just the Waco Pit as many people call it) about nine or ten times so far this year. Over the course of those trips I've found a lot of interesting things such as several species of sharks' teeth, some very small sea urchins, fish vertebrae, and of course the common pyritized miniature ammonites. But I've also found several things that I have yet to definitively identify, such as the three finds that I'm making this post about. First is a small piece of shale with a peculiar pattern that runs off the edge. It reminded me of millipede tracks
  13. I am wanting to collect micro-matrix near (within 45 minutes or so of) Waco, Texas. How do I go about locating places to collect? I have collected non-micro in some of the creeks in the area, but I'm unsure how to locate potential micro-matrix. I'm thinking I might try the Brazos where sandbars are exposed. The help I'm looking for is not directions to your honey-spot (although, I can't say I would refuse that), but tips on what sort of environments might be productive and how to locate them. My only exposure to micro-matrix is from the Pennsylvanian in the Kansas City area, and I (and my

    Waco Pit ID Help

    Although the primary draw of the Waco Research Pit (Cretaceous; Del Rio Formation) is its tiny micromorph ammonites, I have also found a number of other fauna at the site, including these bivalves. These are the last fossils from the Waco Pit that I have not yet been able to identify. I was hoping that someone with more familiarity with the site or bivalves of the Texas Cretaceous might know what they are. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much! #1- ??? #2- Striarca washitensis? #3- ??? #4- ???
  15. I found this in a creek west of Waco, Tx. From the maps I looked at, it seems likely this is the Pawpaw formation. My guess is that the item is the ribs of a brachiopod, but I wondered what better informed collectors might say. The item is about one and a half inches long. The other pictures show the fossiliferous layer that it is still in, as I did not think I could get it out of the lateral crack that exposed the layer without shattering it. Anyway, this is my only picture of it and I look forward to your comments.
  16. Hi ya'll! I had my first real break as a newbie recently and finally reached my all time goal of finding my first shark tooth this weekend. This was at the waco pit, which I (think) is at a confluence of the del rio formation and the eagle ford formation. Over the course of several afternoons, 3 more shark teeth followed, as well as a vertebrae to wrap up a nice trip that also drew up some pyratized ammonites and shells. The daily collection limit of two per person meant that my brother and I were able to really zone in to hot spots with what we wanted rather than being

    Need some help with this one!

    Found this in a limestone out-crop on the Bosque river near Waco. Also found Turrilite and sea urchin fossils in the same layer. The details on this piece look flesh like not like shell. Any help on ID will be greatly appreciated.
  18. Okay. I need some corroboration so I know I'm not losing my mind over here. I go to the Waco Pit pretty often because I live close by. When I was there yesterday, the office guy told me there's a collection limit of 2 specimens. I asked for a copy of the paperwork so I could have it and it did indeed state 2 pieces. When I was a kid, there was no limit. The last time I was there - last year some time with another person who agreed with my recollection - you were allowed 2 specimens from 5 different species, so a max total of 10 specimens. Then I saw a post here from onl

    Pterosaur Finger Bone?

    I've been doing a lot of exploration in the Grayson Formation (Lower Cretaceous) exposures south of Waco lately, and so last week I was doing some hunting on a nice marly slope in the South Bosque River. I picked up lots of pyritized heteromorph ammonites and some turritella, but what really caught my eye was this tiny piece of fossilized bone. I know that vertebrate material can be found in the Grayson - I've even found some nice Cretolamna and Ptychodus teeth myself - but this doesn't seem to be fish or shark. The walls of the inner cavity are extremely thin when you look at the cross sectio
