    Whiskey Bridge Site (March, 2023)

    From the album: Whiskey Bridge

    Thought this pic looked nice and almost like an old school oil painting. I like that the pillar of the railroad track appears as if it were a continuation of the natural bluff farther back.

    Very odd whiskey bridge find

    I found a very odd fossil at whiskey bridge over the weekend and was wondering if anybody had any knowledge on what it could be, picture attached isn't the very best but I'm too afraid the remove it from the bag protecting it right now due to fragility, planning on properly preparing it once i get some paraloid in. BUT the fossil is about 4-5 inches long and 2-3 inches across, it is very fragile towards the end of it but the stem seems to be more sturdy. sorry again for poor picture and lack of scale, just don't want to risk further damage to the fossil yet. My only current guesses are a large

    Serratolamna koerti

    From the album: Whiskey Bridge

    Serratolamna koerti, Burleson Co. Lutetian, Eocene Mar, 2023 I ended up having to take an unexpected trip to A&M this weekend to pick up my brother. Took a quick hunt at the bridge as usual and picked around the fishy layer. I'm so used to finding fingernail sized teeth, I flipped when I wiggled this out. It is now the biggest lamniform in my collection, measuring 40 mm. It's a shame it's worn, but that is to be expected as most of the vertebrate material is reworked at the site.

  11. Hi again! I found this today in Bryan Texas on the Brazos River in the area of the whiskey bridge. Is it the fossil of a crab claw? I wonder if more of it is inside? *this is the only picture I have at the moment, we’re driving home now and it’s in the back of our truck.*

    Whiskey Bridge crab claw

    Not too often I find myself back on the ID section lately, so I guess it's a good thing I've found something that stands out now In matrix, I found a crab claw at Whiskey Bridge (Eocene, Bartonian) in Texas. I did a brief search on the crabs of the area, but can't find anything I'm happy with that in particular shares the same rugosity as my specimen. Any thoughts welcome

  16. Over the month of December, I've gotten the opportunity to check out several sites across the state of Texas. In my fossil interests, I have to admit that I am certainly a bit vertebrate-centric, but that does not mean I will pass up the chance to marvel at a beautiful invertebrate specimen when given the chance. For better or worse, these past four mini hunts have not really delivered on the vertebrate end, but have made up the difference in terms of inverts. I've decided to combine these smaller hunts into one report. For those with invertebrate addictions, I hope this sampler of Texas fossi
  17. Hello everyone! I have been picking through microfossils from the Whiskey Bridge locality on the Brazos River in Texas. I used the hydrogen peroxide technique to separate the fossils from the glauconite matrix, and I have spent hours at the microscope, picking through the material to find the really tiny stuff. Here are a few batches that I've separated... My reason for posting this in the identification section, however, is that I have been running across a large number of echinoderm fragment

    Whiskey Bridge Ostracods

    Last week in a thread by @WyomingRocks! about Whiskey Bridge, a Middle Eocene Claiborne Group site in Texas, @historianmichael asked about ostracods from there. I said I would post some pictures, so here I go. I brought home a bunch of matrix from the site a couple years ago and have broken much of it down and pulled out the larger fossils, but I had not really gone through the micro stuff until recently. I sieved it through a series of screens and found the ostracods primarily on the 60 mesh screen. I have only gone through a tiny amount of it, but wanted to answer his question as I tend
  19. A couple of hours drive from me is an amazing spot to collect Eocene material. It's on the banks of the Brazos River (more properly, the Brazos del Dio River-The Arms of God river! My parents wrote a book on it: Exploring the Brazos: From Beginning to End). I've been to the site a few times, and always find an amazing amount of lovely little shells and such. I had the greatest luck this time though, finding a large shark tooth! I wasn't even aware that you could find shark teeth out there. I had found a cuttlefish prong there on a previous trip which is still one of my all time favorite finds
  20. A few weekends ago, driving to A&M for a gymnastics meet (I'll be transferring there this fall!), I noticed a very familiar looking bridge from this forum, and the sign confirmed that barely 20 minutes away from the heart of campus is the famous Whiskey Bridge. I had no idea, so this was a very pleasant surprise. On the drive back, I decided to hit the bridge bright and early. Found a few cool inverts that are easy enough to ID with the good guides for them, but the sharks of whiskey bridge seem to be poorly written up. In fact, I couldn't find any good guides that compiled mo
  21. I drove to college station to meet up with my future roommate today, and on the way back made the obligatory stop by Whiskey Bridge. This was my second time there, and.... I'll just let this tooth speak for itself. It had me on my knees. Flawless. Striatolamia macrota Stone city formation (Middle Eocene) Another angle, as well as my other finds today:

    Whiskey Bridge oysters? Bryan TX

    I went collecting at the Eocene Whiskey Bridge Locality and found a number of oysters (I presume) that I cannot find good IDs for online. I was wondering if anyone here had a better idea. I additionally found some bone fragments that I am curious about, though I don't know how well they can be ID'd.
  23. I found this bone/antler the other day under Whiskey Bridge near College Station, Texas. The area is known for Eocene marine fossils, but also things like mammoth, horse, and deer skeletal remains. The area has tons of modern deer too. I am reasonably confident that this piece is bone or antler, but beyond that I'm clueless. I can't tell if this is modern or 40,000 years old, and I can't tell what animal it may have come from. I can say that it is 8 grams, slightly curved, and the sides are somewhat flattened. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated. For further context, thi

    Whiskey Bridge Oddity

    Howdy folks, About Ten years ago, on my first and only trip to the famous Whiskey Bridge in Bryan Texas, I unknowingly found and brought home not one, but two cephlapod fossils. Well, I smashed one thinking there might be some “cool shiny mineralization” in this odd odd rock that seemed anomalous and out of place since all I read about were shells and sharks teeth. Shameful... I know... however, something strange looking fell out and I held onto it, taking care to store it carefully due to it, and the fossils themselves, being siderite and prone to oxidizing. It’s current state is

    Whiskey Bridge Gastropod?

    Hi Everyone. I found this gastropod at Whiskey Bridge, near Bryan, Texas two years ago which so far I've been unable to identify. Whiskey Bridge is a marine Eocene site, Crockett Formation, Stone City Member. The specimen is between a half and three quarters of an inch. Thanks. Any ideas would be appreciated.
