  1. Xiphactinus

    Here's a few Xiphactinus fossils in my collection that I collected at the North Sulphur River Texas. My arm for scale lol.
  2. Protostega Fossils

    Here's a few of my favorite Northeast Texas Protostega finds. My arm for scale lol.
  3. Fish Vert

  4. Everyone said NSR was dry and picked over but I hiked 9 hrs and found some cool stuff. My favorites are the Protostega costal bone with partial rib head preserved, the mosasaur bone with bite mark and the artifacts. I walked in tracks all day but the river is too large for someone to get everything and people miss quite a bit.
  5. NSR: Red Bed Unknown

    I dug this directly from the so-called “red bed” (making it Permian) in the north sulphur river. I thought it might be petrified wood, but I am confused as to what the piece is embedded in it. Any ideas?
  6. Here are some gifts from the NSR last Saturday. Please help me identify these specimens; I encourage all observations and speculation here, everything helps me (even look-alike suggestions). Thank y'all!
  7. Mosasaur Tooth

  8. Mosasuar Vert

  9. Eostriatolamia holmdelensis Texas

    From the album Cretaceous Shark Teeth

    Eostriatolamia holmdelensis from the North Sulphur River of Texas. Maastrichtian in age.

    Eostriatolamia holmdelensis from the North Sulphur River of Texas. Maastrichtian in age.
  11. More Shark Week!

    I'm still celebrating shark week. Here's some cool mosasaur bones I found with shark scavenging marks.
  12. My Growing Collection!

    My man cave is coming along nicely. Most are personal finds from Northeast Texas. A few were gifts or purchases.
  13. I thought I would share one of the largest Tylosaurus proriger skulls ever found at the North Sulphur River Texas. This was found by Mr. Don a fossil hunting friend and legend in the area. He's hunted the river for 40 years. The skull is 5 ft 2 inches with very little restoration. He also collected 55 verts from the creature with the largest weight 8.2 lbs . @jnoun11
  14. Ive recently started donating some important Mosasaur finds of mine to Mike Poclyn at SMU for his continuious research of Mosasaurs. I donated Russellsaurine premaxilla from the Austin Chalk formation in a creek in Dallas County and then a rare Halisaurine dentary which is the only Halisaruine skull piece Mike has ever seen from the North Sulphur river. Mike is truly a awesome guy and I am looking forward to continue working with him in contributing rare finds for research.
  15. Fun morning Northeast Texas hike with a heat index of almost 110 degs by the time I left after lunch. The Tylosaur vert is worn but huge and weighs close to 2 lbs. The Tylosaur jaw section was almost buried as you can tell from the in situ pic. The artifacts were a nice little bonus. I waked in tracks for over half the day so I would love to see what the first guy found.
  16. I decided to brave the heat and go hunting in the north Sulphur river after two huge rises and did it pay off I found a lot of good finds but the find of the day was the lower half of the left dentrey of what I believe is a Platecarpus. I knew right away what it was when I walked up on it and said a bad word.
  17. Partial spinal column ID

    Hello everyone, I found this small column of 5 vertebrae in the gravel bars of the North Sulphur River in Texas. To me it seems obvious that it has spent some time in the river since some sediment has been removed but they are all five still attached to each other. Other than the obvious, I have no other identification but would love to learn more about what this is or what they once belonged to. I could only attach one picture to the post for some reason. I will post more images in response. The ruler is decimal inches. Thanks! Andy
  18. Ammonite

  19. Short hunt but some cool finds. I love the nicely preserved mosasaur vert and the rooted mosasaur tooth.
  20. Finally made a trip to the North Sulphur River. As a first timer, I went straight to the Ladonia Fossil Park. It has a large parking area with clear access to the river bottom. Keep in mind, the access is good, but the steps are HUGE. Going down isn't too difficult, but getting back up had me climbing them on my hands/knees. There is an ATV trail on the east side of the bridge that I was told has a more gradual slope, but you'll need to keep an eye open for snakes/insects, as its heavily overgrown with vegetation. I had a great time searching the river bed and banks for fossils. I found tons of baculite segments and lots of vertabrate bone fragments (likely mosasaur). Very few well preserved specimens with the majority worn beyond identification. Also found a few oyster shells, gastropods, and shark teeth. Tools aren't necessary, but you may want to carry scraping tool or a small pry bar for working the bank exposures. Screen boxes also come in handy for sifting through sediments in the river bed. A few words to the wise: - during spring/summer, be sure to wear sunscreen and stay hydrated - use a walking stick to steady yourself and for testing areas ahead of your walk path - try to stay on gravel bars, as the mud can be deep especially along edge of the banks - when walking through water between gravel bars try to avoid walking on shale layers as it is extremely slippery - be aware that there is lots of broken glass, concrete rubble, rusty metal, and other debris - for the above reasons and the fact that they are not very supportive, I would strongly advise against flip flops with firsthand knowledge (in the words of Jimmy Buffet, "I blew out my flip flop, stepped on a pop top........." ) And lastly, always check the water level of the river before making the trek - go to the National Weather Service for North Sulphur River near Cooper, TX (Gauge CPPT2) https://water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?wfo=fwd&gage=cppt2&hydro_type=0 I can't wait to go back.
