  1. Shark centrum modern or fossil?

    Just got home from a day trip to the corpus Christi area, very tired so might be a bit loopy. Found this on a shoreline sort of near the lighthouse park in Port Aransas, given the environment I don't know if it is actually a fossil that was maybe dredged out of the channel or modern. I think it is a shark centrum but I've never found one before so I could be wrong. Scale was a last minute thing, it's 28 mm long. Around an inch and an eighth.
  2. This is my first fossiling report. I got out Sunday and took advantage of the spring-like weather and the low water to do some paddling. It's still too cold for snorkeling (to my mind), though the water temps around here are historically warm for this time of year. I wore waders and searched on foot. I had a very quiet and relaxed 3-hour trip, with more paddling and drifting than collecting. I didn't come away with any stellar day-makers, but I had some fun finds. I couldn't resist picking up a few pieces of random large bone fragments and turtle material which is very abundant here. I collected a few worn whale/dolphin vertebrae, a couple of broken and worn hypurals, and a very worn Odontocete tooth. I found a small end of a turtle rib that pleased me. My favorite piece was a fairly worn shark centrum that turned out to actually be two articulated centra cemented together. I found a handful of non-big teeth, mostly worn and broken, but including a lovely 1.75-inch serrated magatooth, broken tip, with wee, tiny little cusplets. I'd be inclined to call it Angustidens, but if someone called it Chubutensis or "transitional" or similar, I'd be fine with that. It was a nice day, and the first real trip I've been on this year. G
  3. Need help with an ID

    Need help with this ID looks to be a vertebral centrum and was gifted to me from a friend from the northeast US but that is probably no help. Thanks for any help you can provide!
  4. Post Oak Rainy Summer Day

    So, a storm managed to chase me and a few others off the gravel bar at Post Oak Creek but we came back for a second round. It was cool and overcast, muddy and perfect for fossil hunting. I was up to my ankles in creek water but I managed to find a few fossils and shark teeth. In addition to classic Post Oak shark teeth, I think I may have found a portion of a Ptychodus Whipplei tooth. I also found a shark centrum and a bone fossil...but it's a mystery as to what it is...about 1.2" long. Opinions welcome!
  5. North Sulphur River

    My old hunting buddy Trenton-mon and I made it out to the NSR Sunday. It's been a long time since we tromped around out there. We made the trek east of Hwy 38 at Ben Franklin a mile and a half to the old rail road trestle. After pretty much falling to get down into the channel, there is a long stretch of water you have to deal with and that's what has kept us out of there in the past. This time we brought our fishing waders, stayed dry and tackled it. We discovered that some spots are at least waist deep. After we got back on solid ground we found ourselves walking in an area with no footprints ahead of us. It was just what I'd hoped for except unfortunately there were not many fossils to pick up I'd expected to find a lot of teeth out there but we came away with only a couple of enchodus. I found a mammal vert and a couple of mosasaur verts along with 2 shark centrums, an arrow head and misc bone frags. I'll try to get a few pics up later this week. All in all a beautiful day, an ok hunt with some serious exercise and another day of adventure for a couple of old friends who have been treasure hunting together since we were in grade school over 40 years ago.
