  1. 10 hr North Sulphur River Texas hike with friends. I found a little bit of everything. Mosasaur, Xiphactinus, Pleisosaur, Mastodon, Horse, Coral and cool antiques.

    A vertebra from the massive bony fish xiphactinus from the Niobara chalk formation
  3. got to work on these guys because some of these creatures were my inspiration of what they would have looked like in color and others are at an art show. wonder what animals will you like to see when its unleashed before your very eyes?
  4. Sorry I have been crazy busy lately and unable to post. Here's a few of Northeast Texas finds my last couple of trips. Pleisosaur partial girdle, silver spoon, artifacts, xiphactinus tooth, mosasaur verts, old door knob, enchodus jaws, old hard hat, old bottles, ammonite, exogyra and my first crocodile scute.
  5. I had a great half day at the North Sulphur River Texas before the rain got me. I found a mix of everything to include artifacts, Xiphactinus vert, swordfish tooth, coprolite, turtle shell, partially rooted mosasaur tooth, killer mosasaur paddle bone, Enchodus jaws, shark teeth and old toys. My buddy racked up on mosasaur verts.
  6. After taking a little time off from hunting due to a new job and holidays I decided to hit the North Sulphur River with a friend. We had a great day. I love the Tylosaur scapula with shark bites. We found a large Xiphactinus washing out and ended up with one left maxilla and three verts from it. We will go back and check that area again.

    Xiphactinus Vert

  8. I'm a newbie who lives in the Austin area with a lot of passion for ancient life, but I'm having trouble making a decisive start with with my searches. I have a particular interest in large western interior seaway predators, most notably xiphactinus, but also the mosasaurs and sharks that lived in the area as well. Finding a vertebrae, of perhaps even teeth from these groups would be absolutely wonderful, but of the few creeks in the Austin area I've scouted, I've been able to turn up nothing besides gastropods. This is still despite heavily studying the sometimes confusing Texas geological ma

    $60 IKEA case with nice Kansas fossils

    Earlier this year I bought this case from IKEA for about $60. Then I added some LED lights and a few nice fossils. Check it out: Top row is basically the "ferocious fish" level Next down is the Tylosaurus / platycarpine mosasaur level Then the Cretoxyrhina level And a Pteranodon wing cast I made Overview of the four layers: Top level: Xiphactinus and Protosphraena. Note embedded tooth on r. Xip vertebra.
  10. For the rank amateurs here is it possible to explain the differences and how to identify these teeth? Of lesser importance I am attaching photos of 3 inch to inch and a half teeth I had previously thought were all Enchodus and then 2 small half inch fragments found yesterday, both heavily striated. As always thank you all
  11. I decided to take a break in picking through the matrix from my last trip and actually get out and hunt this morning. I drove over to Hill County, and tried out a new creek. I really didn't find anything worth mentioning there, left and stopped on the way home at the creek where I'd found so much mud three weeks ago. It was much drier this time, and I had a lot easier time navigating it. But I still didn't find many fossils. Just like last time though, it produced one that made the trip really worthwhile. Does anyone know what this fish tail belonged to? A Xiphactinus, maybe?
  12. Fossil of giant 70 million year-old fish found in Argentina (PhysOrg) De Pasqua, J.J., Agnolin, F.L. and Bogan, S., 2020. First record of the ichthyodectiform fish Xiphactinus (Teleostei) from Patagonia, Argentina. Alcheringa: An Australasian Journal of Palaeontology, pp.1-5. (Researchgate PDF) Yours, Paul H.

    Legendary Week

    Two hunts, two creeks, two legendary finds in one week. I don’t know what you know about Texas weather, but in July it’s hot. Downright miserable, unsafe heat at times. Just a week and a half ago we hit a heat index of 111 degrees. So when you have a day that tops out in the mid 90s for a high, you take advantage of that cool front. I checked the weather and saw that Tuesday had a high of only 94. I messaged my buddy @sharko69 and said, “Hey, its gonna be a nice day. Let’s do some hunting this afternoon after work.” So we meet up at our usual hunting spot and he

    My Growing Collection!

    My man cave is coming along nicely. Most are personal finds from Northeast Texas. A few were gifts or purchases.
  16. I had a great day on the North Sulphur River.

    Fish material

    From the album: North Sulphur River

    Fish bones tend to have a "flaky" or layered quality to them.
