    Fossilized skin?

    Found some weird textured rock and some shark teeth where I found big vertebrae which k believe is in woodbine formation. any ideas if this is skin etc? more than likely just fossilized cracked mud. but thought I would see. I found shark teeth in immediate area also. think someone posted on here the teeth I found pretty much with this patterned rock or fossil were saw tooth shark.

    Woodbine Nodosaurid?

    I got this a year or so ago, but this was bought as, possibly an ankylosaurian from the Woodbine Formation at Dallas Fort Worth Airport, Texas, USA. It is in pretty rough shape, so I don't expect the best results, but I'm hoping it is an indet. narrowed down to at least Ankylosauria. It looked like it could be a Nodosaurid indet. based on shape. A high chance of it being a complete bust, but I didn't spend much on it so it I figured it was worth the risk for a rare locale. Forgot to take a picture with a measurement, but it's roughly 4.5mm tall.
  3. All, I’m starting to cut/polish some of the suspect dino/aquatic dino bones found in woodbine formation this year. most are full of pyrite/fools gold and are coated with this sulfuric deteriorating substance. once I start cutting past dusty stuff I seem to hit the pyrite or some other metallic like rock that replaced bone marrow ? Goin through wood cutting scroll saw blades like crazy and going to get some ceramic metal saw blades. I was successful and made it through one bone so far. And included A pic. dino correct on the one I cut all the way through
  4. Hello all! A few finds in some Texas Cretaceous Woodbine Micro Matrix that I could use some help in ID'ing. Not sure if all are just fish teeth or maybe something else? All are around .25 inches or aprox 6 mm. Thanks!! 1. Has a very interesting texture and a distinct pattern on the base 2. Seems to have same pattern on bottom - sadly only half 3. The last one.

    Anomalies on Petrified log

    Back in August I was catching feeder fish in a wretched little Woodbine tributary when I pulled this out of the muck. It was black and limestone color with thick algae, it was unrecognizable as wood but there were holes and ripples that gave me hope. Hauling this (24 lbs) and my gear & fish was a challenge up a vertical bank and 100 yd walk through thick thorny brush for a 100 lb person, almost left it halfway back to car. After a good scrubbing it still looked like a chunk of water worn sediment and I deleted the first pic of top side, then I tried a new cleaning method I was using on a
  6. I came across this place not too long ago and recently made another trip, I am in love with this site, the colors, the layers, the in your face geology, the fossils, couldn't ask for more. Pocket map says this area is intersection of Woodbine, Grayson, and QAL. Showing in pictures the series of hills running east to west, #1 west end #4 east end. and various shots closer. Forgot to take picture of first hill on western side there was only Woodbine exposure that had layers of intense purple sandstone and what I'm calling snowflake selenite. The far east side was only Woodbine but in the middl
  7. This also collected from Woodbine, looks like slickenslide in ways, the texture is on 3 different planes I circled the smallest one. This is so soft to touch you can't feel any ridges, it's so soft I thought the rock would be soft but it's very hard and where there's a chip it appears solid white underneath. It looks and feels like hair it is so fine and soft, so biologic or geologic?
  8. I would really appreciate suggestions on the ID of this microfossil (vertebra?) from a portion of what appears to be a coprolite originating from the Woodbine Group (Cenomanian) of Denton County, Texas, USA.

    Plant fossils I hope

    Collected in Woodbine which seems to be popular lately, never was quite sure what to look for and hope this is it, gotta be leaves right? Not sure what the cylindrical might be.

    A few odd Woodbine things

    All of these came from a cliff face on lake Grapevine, no.1 both of these stood out because of rounded shape, plucked from the face of uppermost part of cliff. no.2 there was a thin layer of limonite running length of ledge, all was unremarkable I saw except this piece, thinking impression of plant material? no.3 assuming it's a concretion, thought it was an ammonite when it was cloaked in dirt, found in crevice with some gravels at top of cliff, doesn't look like Woodbine material so stood out, not calcite. Pics are out of order, first one should be last.
  11. My last few excursions have been a continuation of my exploration of the Woodbine. In my experience, it is a very difficult formation to hunt on, so even the smallest of discoveries is a welcome sight to behold. If you have the fortune of finding something there, it is likely to be different and unlike anything from the nearby surrounding formations. My most recent outing took me to an exposure rich with coalified material. The "peat" layer I dug into was extremely brittle and fell apart with minimal effort. Densely packed in was numerous chunks of wood and fragments of leaves likely from the

    First Leaf Imprint? Tarrant Woodbine

    The last month has been a bit quiet for me in terms of fossils. Since school ended for the summer, I've been back in DFW and studying hard for an exam. Thankfully, when test day came, I managed to score well, granting me the time to finally research and take a trip out to a new spot! For most of my life, I've been on top of the Woodbine Formation. I've never perceived it to be particularly fossiliferous as I have rarely come across anything when scouting the ground. However, seeing some of the posts on this forum has since reignited my curiosity about this formation. The Woodbine i

    Very odd little jaw

    Yesterday took Rockwood out to Grapevine lake to explore the Woodbine, we went on treacherous hike below spillway that may or may not have been restricted area. Spotted this in place where sun could have bleached it, didn't know what it was without glasses so stuck it in my pocket for not so safe keeping. Didn't make it back in one peice and it's driving me nuts trying to figure out what it came from or if it's fossil or not. I put the peices in order in one picture, the little strip of teeth goes middle.
  14. Hi guys and gals! I found this mystery fossil a few years ago and the people I spoke to at SMU and the Perot are not sure as to what it is. I thought I throw it out here and see what opinions you all might have. Thanks for taking the time to look and try to help. Woodbine Formation : 95-98mya North Texas
  15. So I found this bone. It was found in North Texas, woodbine formation, Ive been discussing this with my friends. They believe its fish. One of the friends believes it might be Ceolocanth since he found a few pieces out here in different locations. I can find pics of anything that looks like it. It has some interesting features: 1.What appears to be enamel or iron scattered around the bone. Its shiny. Looks like enamel but some of the iron out there can look the same 2. It has "grooves" or lines that seem to go along the edges. Could be remnants of teeth, could be bites or claw

    Bone fragment from AAS?

    Every so often I go kick around at the old AAS, it was on my sight seeing list for Rockwood and we stopped by other day. Finding anything white there is rare, I can't remember any of the fossils from there being white and all the wood there is black. This looks like bone if left with no other choice, but I'm sure I'll be given some

    Ammonite and shell ID please

    Found these in a tiny unnamed creek where it transitions from Woodbine to Eagle Ford, think I was still in Woodbine but not sure. Ammonite isn't in great shape but wondering if it's Calycoceras? Amongst the clams and gastropods in next one is a long peice of shell on the edge, doesn't look familiar and I'm not used to seeing any detail but should help someone ID it.

    Fossilized Lightning??

    Took my dogs out to Grapevine lake, frequently go there, kicked this up in a sandy area close to swimming beach. Quite puzzled, there are no such concretions in Woodbine here and pretty sure no fossil involved. I've only seen oysters, Turritella and dinosaur footprints. So this appears to be crystalized in the center, with spirals of different color granules and crystals wrapping around very fine grained structure in the shape of a bottle. It's got to be something, but what? Looking forward to an answer!My only decent Woodbine find.
  19. A few weeks ago I decided to take the kids to my local park. They are building houses in this area and completed a new road which made getting to this park much quicker. Now instead of going way around it's only about a mile from my house and a much more direct shot. On the drive to the park I looked over to my right and saw some red/orange soil. The only formation in this area with that color is the Woodbine formation. "Odd," I thought. "The nearest Woodbine outcrop on the geological map is miles from here." I told my kids we were gonna make a quick pit stop for 10 minutes or so t
  20. I had the opportunity for a half-day of fossil hunting Saturday and went out to Mansfield looking for Lower Britton formation outcrops. I'd done some prospecting and thought I had a few sites, but as it turns out I hit the Woodbine. My second location was a total bust and I found nothing except green brier, cockle burs, and alluvium. Still found a few specimens that made it into the collection, which is much better than sitting at home or striking out completely. I've made it to a point in my collecting that I'm no longer satisfied with sites I can find online and have switched to prospecting

    Fossil pearl? Prob not...

    I know this is not very likely, but why not ask. I have been emboldened by a post from a long time ago from @frankh8147. I am basing the question only on the spherical shape and the fact that it is embedded in hard matrix, along with shark teeth and fish parts. It seems like a lot of them are darker, such as Frank’s possible pearl. Found at bottom of the Eagle Ford, top of the Woodbine, so Cenomanian to Turonian in age. Scale at the top of second pic in mm. If not a pearl, any guesses what it would be? Not a lot of round stuff that I have seen, and still want to kn

    Stumped on this one

    This was found around the bottom of the Eagle Ford or the top of the Woodbine in Texas. It is heavy enough to be fossilized, weighs about 11g. No response to a magnet. It is about 1cm x 1.5cm x 2.5cm. I’m not sure what it is, if anything.

    Unknown woodbine fossil

    Found this on a large piece of sandstone on an eastern cross timbers forest meadow in south central Denton county near the Denton landfill. Any ideas?

    Fish Scale?

    Is this a fish scale? It was found in the Woodbine formation south of Denton, TX. I am new to microfossils. It may also be a small clam.
