  1. Bone Central Texas ID Help

    Found this partial bone. It is heavy. I am wondering if it is Bos or something else. Any help is very appreciated!
  2. Mammoth/Mastodon Toe Bone?

    Found on the Brazos River just southwest of Houston. When I first picked this up, judging by the extreme river damage it had suffered being tossed around in the water for so many years, I simply assumed it was just another unidentifiable piece of Pleistocene bone to get thrown in the box with the others back at home. But since I've been going through the galleries of some of the members here to help identify the other bones I collected, this one seems to bear a resemblance to a mammoth metacarpal. Maybe the smallest one, although the damage on several spots is significant - the outer bony surface on one side has been completely removed. Am I just crazy, or is this thing the real deal? Any help on an ID is appreciated!
  3. Turtle/Tortoise Carapace Fragment

    Found on the Brazos River just southwest of Houston. The title says it all, as that's about all I know about this one! Any help on narrowing it down beyond that to something like a basic genus or even a species would be welcome.
  4. Mystery Jawbone

    Found on the Brazos River just southwest of Houston. When I first saw it I almost left it behind as it looked modern at a glance. The jawbone is definitely mineralized, however, but unfortunately its missing the teeth it used to contain as it's only one side of the whole bone. My best guess is that its a fragment of an alligator jaw based on the round tooth cavities and the way they're spaced apart, but if anyone more knowledgable then me could give a suggestion, that would be great.
  5. Peccary Molar?

    Found on the Brazos River just southwest of Houston. Unfortunately all that's left of this tooth are the roots. Judging by their coloration and the general size they seem to match up fairly well with pictures of peccary molars I've been able to find online. Obviously if there was an occlusal surface this would be a lot easier, but if anybody has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate them. Thanks!
  6. Turtle Nuchal Bone

    Found on the Brazos River just southwest of Houston. I'm fairly confident that this is a nuchal bone, but I my real interest lies in identifying what species of turtle it is from. I seem to remember reading a post on here mentioning that nucal bones are diagnostic to taxon, so that should make it easy. Unfortunately, I can't find anything anywhere about different Texas Pleistocene turtle species. Hopefully someone here is more knowledgable than me! I would appreciate any suggestions.
  7. Hi all My kids and I found this tooth in one of the feeder creeks of the NSR in May. Someone said that it could be a worn Protosphyraena tooth. The leading edge is sharp; whereas, the trailing edge is round. It's also mostly compressed and broad-based. Any information or thoughts is much appreciated! Thanks!
  8. Fossil ID helped needed!!

    Hello guys! Nathan here. I have a few fossils I would like to get y'all opinions about what they are or if there even fossils! Here is one rock I found outside my house in Houston Texas.
  9. Plesiosaurus Vert...Maybe

    Hi All. I found this recently at NSR. I do believe it is a Plesiosaurus vertebrae. Looking around to make sure before I label and I have confused myself. Looked at too many websites. So, is it a Plesiosaurus Vert? Thanks in advance for your help?

  16. Gastropod - Metallic Smell

    From the album Planko NSR Collection

  17. Pleistocene Tooth

    Found on the Brazos River just west of Richmond, Texas. My best guess is Equus sp. judging by how flat it is, but any confirmations or other suggestions are welcome. Unfortunately the occlusal surface is extremely worn down, so identification may be difficult. If anyone knows exactly what tooth it is (such as location in the mouth) that would be very helpful too. Thanks for looking!
  18. Gastropod / Unknown Bone

    Below is gastropod and was wondering a couple of things. Found NSR up from the Ladonia Park. What species to label it. Second though is it is heavy for its size. I know weight doesn't matter a lot but it is unusual. It is a different matrix from the normal NSR black or red gastropod steinkerns normally found there. Ok, the really unusual part it smells like metal. Like when you hold coins in your hand and they have the metallic smell. This has that smell and your hand smells just like it after holding. Maybe thinking to much into this but just is different. Bone fragment same location. Might be to worn to label.
  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, but i had no idea you could find shark teeth! So it was already a good day, but , I also took a one gallon bag of loose dirt home and had fun going through it under the microscope camera....and wow! So many tiny tiny things to be found! All the fishy stuff (vert, tooth, and spine) were microscope finds - the spine being the largest at 1/2 inch. Plus the two little shark teeth - 1/4 inches each. I would not have seen those in the field. So my fun with my microscope camera continues. Here are my finds- I hope i have the proper ID's for all that I could (with help from FF friends!) - a few I still don't have ID's for. There are over 200 species from this location! So far, i've found about 50! I forsee many more trips to Whiskey Bridge! ( Edited to correct spelling errors). Cuttle fish prongs are 1 inch Ray tooth plate is 1/4 inch If you are not familiar with this area - the ootoliths are.....Fish Ear Bones! The Gastropods: (All of there are one inch or smaller - the smallest being 1/16 inch) BIvalves:
  20. Good Morning Folks, I am sharing some photos of my fossil plant collection. The first photo is a branch from a Stigmaria heimans tree. It's from Texas and (I believe) from Palo Pinto County. It's in sandstone and is from the Carboniferous period. I purchased this specimen over 20 years ago from an estate sale with very little information provided (Fossil from Texas). My research provided the additional information.
  21. Crockett/Stone City unknowns

    Hello all! I made my first trip to the famous Eocene Texas location a few weeks ago and have a few things that remain a mystery to me. I have perused the forum and was able to ID most of my finds from jkfoam's informative replies and many topics from other members. However, several of the gastropods below resemble species I have already identified, but they're not quite the same, so I'm unsure exactly what they are. Not all the images have a scale, but they are all micro fossils under half a centimeter in length. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer! (1) I know this is an ootolith, but I cannot differentiate between the two most common kinds. Help would be appreciated, especially as I only have two of these guys and they are the same. (2) Initially I believed this to be an ootolith as well, but after cleaning it, I really have no idea. Image is front & back. (3) Here is another that I believed to be an ootolith but now have doubts about. Image is front & back. (4) This appears very crab-esque to me, but again, I have no idea. (5) Could this be Bolis enterogramma? I can't find enough images on the web to say I am confident with my ID on this one. (6) I have this (and many others) down as Polinices sp., however I cannot tell the difference between these and Neverita sp. so the ID could be incorrect. Could someone clarify the differences for me? (7) Mystery gastropod (two views; same specimen). (8) Another similar mystery gastropod (two views; same specimen). (9) This is one that looks similar to some I've already IDed, but just different enough to make me believe it is something else. (10) I believe these two are the same species, but when they get this small (some of my smallest; only a few millimeters long), I find it difficult to tell. For all I know, these could be ice cream cones.
  22. Texas Pliosaur

    Went out for a hunt with friends today on a local creek in Denton County, Texas and came across this great tooth. Better beat up that not to find at all. Was totally stoked when I saw the tip and thought I had found a large mosy in this creek. Was even more excited when I made out what I had really found.
  23. I found what appears to be fossilized bone when the water was low at my friends house on the Brazos in Waco. Any thoughts on what it is?
  24. Brazos River Pleistocene Bone

    Found this big chunk of bone on one of the gravel bars in the Brazos last week while the water was still low enough to walk around. I have a strong suspicion that it's part of the proximal end of a bison metacarpal, as that's the only thing that it seems to resemble in pictures I've compared it to online, but if someone more knowledgable in these things than myself could confirm (or completely disprove me, that's welcome too!) that would be great.
  25. Texas City Dike Bison Tooth?

    One of the only fossils I managed to find at the Texas City dike this weekend, which is well-known as a site for Pleistocene fossils from the Beaumont Clay formation that are pulled to the surface during dredging operations in the nearby shipping channel. I know this tooth isn't Equus, so maybe bison? Any help would be appreciated!
