FlounderStomper posted a topic in Fossil IDHello all, I recently discovered some awesome petrified wood in some large landscape river rock near my office. I have always collected petrified wood since I was a kid and this peaked my interest again. In an attempt to find out more about the wood, I found out that the rock was taken from the Colorado River near La Grange, TX. As I was collecting more specimens, I came across this which appears to be fossilized bone. It is much lighter than what a rock that size would be and has many odd features that seem to resemble bone. Can you guys offer some knowledge on whether you think this is bone and any other information you may have? I love collecting fossils/rocks but have not studied any sort of paleontology so I am totally green to formations, periods, etc. Most of my finds get put on display at my office or home and I never really know much about them. Im starting to learn though! The following pictures are the "bone" in question. Thank you!
After a recent post by new member Kyen I decided to post this tooth I found a while back on the Colorado River, TX. I assumed it to be mastodon, but after looking at pics that @Harry Pristis posted, I would like to know if this could be senile gomph chunk?
