  1. Hey ! happy holiday to you all guy ! today i need some help in ID these fossil >> all were found in Brewster country , Aguja formation , cretaceous in age 1. Fish tooth? or Croc tooth ? I have like nearly 10 tooth like this ... 2. Hadrosaur spitter tooth ? 3. Another Hadrosaur spitter tooth ? 4. Fish or croc tooth ?
  2. Fresh out of the Aguja, found this crocodilian tooth. I know Deinosuchus is present in the formation; I thought it could be based on the strong striations and stoutness? Or can it only be called Eusuchia? It's about 5 mm in length: Thanks!
  3. Question about Kritosaurus teeth

    Hello, So, I see these teeth sold a few places and will probably get one because I don't have any hadrosaur teeth from Aguja yet. But, is the id of Kritosaurus correct, or is it a term labelled to teeth the same way deltadromeus is often thrown onto Moroccan teeth. I see the two described hadrosaurs from there are Kritosaurus and Aquilarhinus, but is there a chance that other undetermined remains could be from there too, so these teeth would be better labelled as hadrosaurid? Or are they likely to be Kritosaurus or Aquilarhinus? Thanks
  4. Aguja formation theropod tooth

    Found this theropod tooth in my Aguja formation matrix from west Texas. It's narrower and has more serrations than the usual theropod teeth I find there. Any ideas as to what kind? Hash marks are 1mm. Thanks for any help.
  5. Aguja Ankylosaur Tooth

    Hello, hope everyone is doing well. I wanted to share with you what I believe to be an ankylosaur or nodosaur tooth I found while hunting through my bag of Aguja fm matrix from western texas. The tooth is about 7 mm in length and has a bulge at the base which curves to become flattened as the crown continues. I hope I got this ID right as it would be my first Ankylosaurian tooth I've ever found.
  6. Not a clue what this is...

    Hi. Here’s another item I’m hoping you can identify for me. It’s from a bag of matrix from the aguja formation in Texas. It measures 5 mm in length. It’s a glossy black. I really have no clue on this one. I kind of suspect it’s some kind of seed but ..... im sorry the pictures aren’t better but I don’t have anyway to take better ones. thank you.
  7. Possible croc tooth?

    Hi! I suspect that this may be a croc tooth but I’m not sure. It’s in pretty bad shape I’m afraid. It’s from the aguja formation in Texas. Ruler marks are mm and cm. Sorry the pictures aren’t better... thank you!
  8. Troodon Tooth?

    I found this tooth in my Aguja matrix and the serrations are way larger than any of the other teeth I've found! I can take more pictures but this tooth is so tiny and I'm unsure of it's exact measurements.
  9. Unknown Aguja Fm Tooth... or not?

    Hello again TFF! I found, what might be, a partial tooth in some Aguja Fm matrix that I haven't been able to ID...It has an interesting texture on it so it may be a piece of bone or something else entirely! It is 13mm tall, 12mm wide and 7mm thick. Thanks for your help! Front Back Top Side
  10. Aguja Fm theropod ungual

    Hi again TFF! I pulled this little guy out of some Aguja Fm matrix and my first thought was possible theropod ungual. It is a massive 4mm in length. Thoughts?
  11. Part the Third of the Hunting from Home series! The Texas Aguja Late Cretaceous formation Matrix from PaleoTex LLC! While i have been to West Texas MANY times (Big Ben National Park is kind of my second home) I've never had a chance to go fossil hunting there. So when I found out the Aguja Formation matrix was available, I was excited to see what I could find. So here are my little tiny finds! So far my favorite find is these tiny tiny shark teeth - Onchopristis dunklei (thanks Trodon for the ID!) They are about 1/16th inch (2mm) Next is a surprise find - a mammal incisor! 1/4 inch And thanks to another forum post, I was able to ID this tooth as Paronychodon : 1/4 inch Some cool little crocodile teeth I sure wish I could have found more of this Hybodont Spine, but at least it has some of the barbs on it. I love the translucence of this gar tooth: And here is a little montage of various Gar Scales An unknown tooth: I think the above is different than this one, but it might be the same. This one is another Gar Lepisosteus 1/4 inch Some neat vertebra (all are 1/4 to 1/16 Another Tooth...possibly Hybodont? And lastly, some random spines:
  12. Weird Aguja tooth

    Salutations friends! I hope everyone is doing well. I was going through some Aguja matrix and found this little diddy. I have no idea what to make of it, my first thought was Sawfish rostral but another buddy said he thinks it's croc. Regradless I would love any help I could get on this. Size is about a 1/4". Thanks everyone!
  13. With the current pandemic I decided now was as good of a time as any to get some matrix from the Aguja Formation with the help of PaleoTex! This turned out to be a great decision as I was extremely lucky, finding about basically everything I wanted to, and more in only 5 pounds of matrix! I'll be sure to post pictures but I got numerous amia and gar teeth, along with atleast 36 gar scales. Tons of Crocodile teeth including a large Deinosuchus tooth. Several shark teeth and a partial hybodus spine, also several brackish water pycnodontid teeth and tooth pallets. 4 fish or salamander jaws with teeth. Regarding dinosaur teeth I got 17 Hadrosaur teeth, including 2 partially rooted. A partial Ankylosaurus tooth. 4 Therapod teeth including a perfect Saurornitholestes tooth and a Premax. My favorite find however was the Paronychodon tooth I found! I'll be posting that picture first! Highly recommend this matrix, but I was also told that most people don't find all this stuff, so keep that in mind aswell. Stay safe! Happy hunting! (ID's for these specimens done by lab manager)
  14. Aguja tooth or what

    I found this in some matrix I brought back from the Aguja formation in Brewster county, Texas. I makes me think of a tooth, a little like an ankylosaurus tooth. Any thoughts? The hash marks are 1mm. Thanks for any help.
  15. Two new from Aguja formation

    I found these two teeth in some matrix that I recently brought back from the Aguja formation in West Texas, Brewster county. I think one is a dromaeosaur tooth and the other a hadrosaur tooth.The serrations on both sides of the theropod tooth are about 6 per 1mm. The scale in the photos is 1mm. What do you think? Thanks for any help.
  16. Aguja Formation Micro Fossils

    I just got some micro-matrix from the aguja formation. I starting going through it today but I am totally new to this kind of matrix. I have found a couple of things so far and some things I would like help identifying. I am not home right now so I can’t get any better photos for a little bit. I will definitely get a ruler in the next pictures.
  17. Here are some photos of some of my dromaeosaurid fossils from the Aguja Formation of Brewster County, Texas.
  18. Aguja teeth or claws?

    I found these sorting through some Aguja formation from West Texas, late Cretaceous, matrix. I am not sure if they are teeth or claws. I think that the middle tooth may be a croc, but not sure. The hash marks are 1mm. Any ideas?
  19. Multituberculate tooth?

    I found this little guy sorting through some Aguja formation, late Cretaceous, matrix. It looks like a Multituberculate mammal molar on part of the jaw to me. I have shown several sides, including a cross section when the tooth broke in two as I was photographing it. Aghhh! Fortunately, I glued it back together pretty well. What do you think? The hash marks are 1mm.
  20. Teeth from Aguja formation

    I obtained some matrix from the Aguja formation, which is late Cretaceous, from Brewster, County, Texas. I have been finding all kinds of good stuff, but will start with the following. The first two pics are from what I believe to be a therapod - maybe Tyranasaurid? There are approx. 5 serrations per mm. The next two are of an unidentified tooth. The last is a group photo of what may be Champsosaurus teeth? The hash marks are 1mm. Any ideas?
  21. I got myself a bag of Aguja formation matrix a while back. I have been looking at it and wanting so badly to go through it, but I lack the proper sieves. Anyway, I got too curious a few days ago and used some metal mesh from a reusable coffee filter to filter about a cup of matrix down. To be honest, none of my equipment is up to par, but I’ve started a look through and it’s already fun! Will be continuing this thread till I get done with the bag, which may take a while. Updates will be periodic and this thread is mainly so I can store my information and share it but feel free to comment, help ID, give tips, follow along, or whatever you would like to do! Here it goes: Fishy Vertebra, very similar to my Miocene ones!
  22. Aguja formation tooth

    I found this tooth from the Aguja formation, Brewster County, Texas. I believe it is some sort of fish, but not sure. Any ideas? Hash marks are in mm. Thanks
  23. Aguja Fm tooth, jaw, or what?

    I found this little guy going through some matrix from the Aguja formation, Brewster county, in west Texas. It is late Cretaceous. I can't tell if it is a tooth (as from a multituberculate mammal), a jaw section, or just a suggestively shaped rock. What do you think? I have attached the bottom, side, and top views. The hash marks are 1mm. Thanks for any help.
  24. Tyrannosaurus sp?

    Tyrannosaurus sp? from West Texas. No restoration or repair. 1 1/2".
  25. Micro fossil?

    Need some help from the micro fossil experts. I am going through some mud samples from Terkingua TX and found this item. Appx 1/16" long and ribbed. Doesn't look like wood so was thinking something along the lines of a dental plate. I was told it was part of the Aguja formation but am not sure so am trying to pinpoint the actual formation on this map. How far off base am I?
