  1. Shark centrum

    From the album In-Situ Shots(various locations)

    10-12-18 Denton County, TX
  2. My son and I have have been finding a few sharks teeth in Galveston that have washed onto the beaches. Does anyone know the age or the formation that these teeth are washing up from?
  3. another tiny thingy...I am saying sponge?....but could be wrong or some sort of fossil plant or sponge with a crystal center?
  4. I found this plate of oysters I don't know the name of in the Lower Cretaceous Grayson Formation exposure at Rayzor Ranch in Denton Texas. I showed it to @trempie4 in August and @Jeffrey P when he was here in September and neither one wanted it so I finally took it home myself. As I was exposing more of the oysters I first noticed these nice little serpula on and around the oysters. Then I noticed something I haven't seen before. i wonder if it could be some kind of feeding trace. Any ideas?
  5. fossilized tiny egg mass???

    found west of Houston in Brookdhire in gravel load from Brazos River at first I thought it was a piece of turtle shell then perhaps a piece of corral but when I looked at it through a microscope ???? I went online and looked around found something similar but its modern horseshoe crab eggs???...could this be eggs from a very old horseshoe crab? but I think they are smaller...or perhaps something else? it is slightly curved...the clutch is flat about a 1/4 th inch think and an inch in width this is the first thing like this that I had found. if its eggs they don't seem to be on anything just a solid crystallized mass. have also included a pic of horseshoe crab eggs for comparison. a few of the pix I took of them wet others dry.
  6. Pecan gap chalk ammonites

    Had a pretty fun day here in San Antonio, started off by meeting Dan, talked for a little while before he moved on to go scout some other areas, moved down a ways and found a mosasaur vertebrae (my first), and then a pachydiscus (also a first for me) had to leave for a while but came back and found more pachydiscus chunks and then a giant pachydiscus that I had almost stepped on probably 10 times or more.
  7. something or nothing?

    stone 1.5 inches location: west of Houston in Brookshire from a gravel load from Brazos River. a small portion of the one end of stone is chipped off.
  8. Due to the hurricane I got an extra day off from offshore so I hit the North Sulphur River for a few hours. I found a nice big Tylosaur vert, small mosasaur vert, fish ribs, arrowhead and a big Native American chopper tool. The arrowhead is ugly but I like it lol.
  9. South Texas belemnite?

    Hello, first post here, found what I think might be a belemnite? Unsure though. Found in dirt near drainage ditch just outside loop 1604 South side of I35, map says pecan Gap chalk but I'm no good at IDing formations, any help is appreciated. PS I have other fossils I'm unsure of from another area, new thread or here? Thanks, Raymond.
  10. North Sulphur River Bone

    I found this bone today at the North Sulphur River Texas. I think it's a type of mosasaur bone based on weight and color but I can't tell what it is.
  11. Short NSR Hunt!

    I got in a 3 hr hunt before the rain and flooding. Once the water started coming up I had to make a quick exit but still got wet. I managed to find a few things.
  12. Ladonia Fossil Park ID

    Hello all, I have been trying to Id this fossil for awhile and I found it at Ladonia fossil park. Its known for mososaurs and fish and things. Please help. Thank you for looking.
  13. Last week I was contacted by Neil Landman at the AMNH regarding ammonites of the Corsicana Formation of South Texas. Before the sites were built over, I kept in mind that any and all ammonite finds might be significant from that formation, and noticed that Kenedy and Cobban showed a different ammonite fauna from the same formation in North Texas. While North TX Corsicana is dominated by Sphenodiscus, South Texas Corsicana is dominated by pachydiscids. I had a bunch of diagnostic partial Discoscaphites (conradi?), pachydiscids, Sphenodiscus sp. as well as complete Eutrephoceras c.f. dekayi nautiloids in my remaining surplus, and Neil seems quite pleased to be receiving them this week. Coupled with a bunch of similar donations made to the MMNS and available on loan, Landman's helpers will have a good sampling available to gain a better understanding of certain ammonite ranges in this poorly exposed interval of Upper Cretaceous in South Texas. 3 tips wash out of this exercise. 1) Teach yourself what is significant and what isn't wherever you collect. 2) Don't let bias for pretty fossils keep you from picking up diagnostic partials of anything that might be significant. 3) Take home enough for you AND for science whenever possible for the ultimate win-win.
  14. 26054-38060-1-SM.pdf Here is a paper by Itano and Lucas about a revision of Camyloprion Eastman, 1902 that includes new teeth found by Mark McKinzie in the Finis Shale member of the Jacksboro Limestone at Jacksboro's Lost Creek site.
  15. Vertebra ID?

    Found in southeast Texas, Harris County, Brazos River. Any idea what this might be from?
  16. Is this a fossil?

    My daughter found this in Austin, I’m trying to be a good dad and figure out what it is, any help would be appreciated!
  17. Unique tubular shapes

    Found these fossils on our ranch. My two little guys and I often go "exploring" on foot. They love finding the "clam shell" fossils and the "curly Q" fossils. The one we found today are different than anything we have ever seen.And we have been exploring this small 640 acre ranch for a decade. These are tubular like a bone with marrow would look. The ranch is one mile west if Oplin, TX in the extreme southwest corner of Callahan County.
  18. first what appears to be a tooth and what appears to be another bone fragment?... I tried resetting the camera but I am not the best still waiting for data cord for new camera.....argh!...its taking to long
  19. NSR Texas Tooth Need ID Please???

    I found this tooth in the late Cretaceous North Sulphur River of Ladonia, Texas. It’s fossilized and has been hollowed out. Unsure of how old this is and its ID. Any ideas? Thank you in advance.
  20. Antler or Petrified wood?

    I found these in the gravel load, Brookshire Texas the gravel came from the Brazos river item #1 photos 1-7 item #2 photos 8-13
  21. I found this in the NSR yesterday, and it is very similar to a Tabulate coral I found in the NSR a while back. Here’s the discussion on the forum about that specimen: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/78070-mosaic-of-crystal-north-sulphur-river/ This one is worn a bit more, so I’m confused as to whether it is also a Tabulate coral or Rudist, but they have very similar characteristics. The sections don’t seem to be as square as Rudist. Any help is appreciated!
