  1. Plesiosaur Tooth

    Have a creek not far from my house that I hunt regularly that turns up a few goodies on every trip. Went out hunting last week and found this partial tooth. I have found Mosasaur bones and teeth here but am pretty sure this tooth is from something else. My thought is plesiosaur due to it having much heavier striations and also looks to have a pretty good curve to it. Thank you for any insight.
  2. Pennsylvanian Fossils of North Texas

    FOSSIL Roadshow Webinar 2- Pennsylvanian Fossils of North Texas https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXRzTzW-aVM myFossil https://www.myfossil.org https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCt18MbS9hR6BjGK6yV_aI_A Yours, Paul H.
  3. Atco Peculiarity

    In June of 2018, Kieth Minor alerted me to a new apartment complex that was being developed in the middle Atco Formation of North Texas. They were cutting a huge cubic area of rock out of a hillside, piling up multiple large mounds of Atco which seemed to be begging for someone to carefully search out their freshly exposed contents. On the 15th of that month we got to the site, Kieth asked permission of the site foreman for us to carefully take a look around during the crew's work hours, and we made our way into the pit. We were on a mission to save as many ammonites as we could. FIG 1: First impressions.
  4. N. Texas Unknown Vert

    Found this vert in a Farmers Branch gravel bed. (Farmers Branch is a suburb of N. Dallas) Hoping you could help me identify it!
  5. T. peramplum #1

    From the album Fauna and Flora of the Austin Group in Texas

    This specimen is the largest of its genus in my collection, and the largest known to me in any collection. It measures about 7 cm in height, and 4.3 cm in diameter. It retains its tubercles in the most mature whorl sections that are preserved well enough to tell. The specimen is quite crushed.
  6. Post Oak Creek

    My Post Oak Creek take from Sunday February 23, 2020, rainy gloomy day and a short visit. But very successful. I took a friend and she found her first tooth.
  7. Identification assistance

    I need assistance with identification of several items. Any thoughts. North Texas cretaceous.
  8. Fossil Shell?

    I live in Flower Mound, Texas, Denton County. I find many fossilized shells in the ground as I garden and stuff. The other day, this one popped up and looked different enough that I am curious if it is a shell or something else. The one surface is much smoother than I see with the other "clam" shell fossils I find. The sides also appear to be thinner than usual. Thanks for any help.
  9. North Texas Find

    Howdy! I live in North Texas (Denton County) by a really interesting area geologically and I found this thing while cleaning trash out of the creekbed today. I'm not sure if it's even a fossil but it's been one of the coolest things I've found (usually I only find Gryphaea and old pottery). Birding is usually my thing so I figured I might as well ask some people who know better! Let me know if y'all need better photos. Thanks in advance for the help!
  10. 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?
  11. Stumping me beyond belief

    While I am more knowledgeable about fossils than when I joined, this thing is confusing me. It is porous with fine holes and appears to be bone, but it could be wood. Any clues?
  12. Need ID

    What did I find?
  13. Possible horse and crocodile tooth

    Found these two teeth in a creek in north texas. I believe the first may be a partial horse and the second a crocodile? Any help would be appreciated as always.
  14. Vertebra, vertebrae or I give up

    Today in north texas I found this piece that appears to be fish vertebrae (possibly 2?)… what do y’all think
  15. What did I stumble upon?

    Found on the north sulfur river today. It’s cross hatched… I know it’s a fossil of something, but I am clueless as to what. A girl I met with found something similar and we had no clue.
  16. Is it a vertebra or cross section of bone?

    Found this today on the North Sulfur River. I can’t tell if it’s a vertebra or a cross section of bone or something completely different- I’m not familiar with the concentric circle in it.
  17. My apologies for posting so many topics without really contributing to other users threads. Im just excited that I found a message board where I can share these finds with people who can appreciate them Here is my very meager collection of fossils from Glen Rose Texas at the Paluxy river. The first time I went I was amazed at how many invertebrate specimens could be found so simply on the ground. The region is late Cretaceous Eagle Ford group. I have yet to identify them all but will edit the topic later once I read through a few other members posts and discover what these may be based on similar fossils.
  18. Tooth? Claw? Vertebra? Need help with ID

    This is another backyard find that I am having trouble identifying and any help would be much appreciated. It resembles a claw or tooth but I am probably wrong. I live in north Texas and my property is located along the Cretaceous Duck Creek Formation: Mortoniceras and Eopachydiscus (thanks to DPS ammonite for helping me identify the formation). Would love to hear from anyone who may know what it is. Thanks in advance.
  19. I am right now out in the field, attempting to extract a string of articulated reptile vertebrae in the lower Atco. It is in a soft marl bed just a few feet above the basal Atco. There seems to be articulated ribs associated with the specimen, and so far I have uncovered 14 verts. 9 of them were lose of the surface and bagged in ziplocks, but now I am trying to get the rest out. If anyone has any advice, I need it! The specimen also has articulated ribs. I want to get this thing home tonight, and not destroyed. This is is my first time attempting to extract vertebrae, and I want to do it right and get it home tonight. It is currently 8:54 p.m. here in North Texas. Here are some pictures of the bones when I found them and where the dig is now. I don’t know what exactly it is, but I am guessing juvenile Mosasaur. Age is Earliest Coniacian. 9 verts were on the surface, and at least 6 more uncovered with ribs. Pictures incoming: All 9 verts. @Uncle Siphuncle @erose
  20. Arcadia Park/Britton Gastropod/Ammonite?

    On Sunday afternoon I went out with Keith Minor to a North Texas site exposing the lower Arcadia Park formation and (possibly?) the top of the Britton Formation (lower Turonian, upper Cenomanian respectively). The hunt almost never happened after various storm cells were menacing us and the high winds were thrusting cranes into sky scrapers and whipping up emphysema inducing dust clouds. Yet, even though everyone around us was getting Kansas blown at them, we were only exposed to the high winds and rain so cold and blown so hard that it felt almost like hail. But that lasted for only a few minutes, leaving the rest of the day to muck around in the Turonian while the winds blew most of the clouds away by hunt’s end. The Kamp Ranch Limestone is exposed very nicely at the site, as well as meters of shale beds above and below it, making a short study of the successive stratification obligatory. FIG 1: The roughly 38 cm (15 inch) thick Kamp Ranch jutting out amongst the soft shale and clay above and below it. The clouds foretell the showers to befall us. (ID request incoming)
  21. In the continuing saga of finding all the echinoids of Texas.....I found a few new things plus re-assessing my collection I found I already had another example (albeit small bits only) of another! So here are my latest finds (and re-finds). In my collection from Marathon Tx was a couple of bits of (I think) an Archeocidarid!! Stopped by a little creek in Austin and found this lovely Coenholectypus: Went on a little road trip to Glen Rose TX and found what I thought was a Loriolia but on closer inspection, it's a Goniopygus! Not a great specimen, but slightly better than my previous ones, so still looking for a nice one: And the piece de resistance : A Balanocidarid Spine!! Practically in my own backyard (well, within 30 minutes drive anyways)
  22. Found this bone fragment among shells and shark's teeth in North Texas... along the bank of Post Oak Creek, Sherman Texas. Please help my kids know what this may be. Much appreciated!!
  23. hello and i thank you for your opinions and i welcome your admiration of this beautiful find. can you identify it? do you see the "chop" marks in the green crust? they appear all the way around the bone. the first picture, it is wet on a sunny day - the others are dry on a cloudy day. it weighs 8 pounds. it is 8 inches wide and about 6 inches tall and 6 inches deep. i found it digging in denton - i landscape - most likely fence posts or plants - i dont remember - what i do remember is i had it for years before i recognized that it was a bone...when i grabbed it i thought i grabbed a green rock, which was fine with me. years later i found it again in a pile of stuff, so i washed it off and low and behold....its a bone. some time later i picked it up again and noticed it had chop marks or looks like chop marks and i also noticed that the chop marks are all the way around. am i wrong ? oh yeah, i dont know what animal this bone comes from - any ideas ?
