Found 8 results

  1. Found this in Comanche Peak limestone formation in Central Texas. I'm thinking Eoradiolites quadratus but not sure if there's enough info to nail down species. Apex to apex measures approximately 1.5 cm for three different samples. I will slowly post more pics of the other specimens, as I reduce photo sizes without losing quality. Thanks for your help.
  2. A Cross-section of Something, Perhaps?

    This peculiar thing caught my eye while I was out looking for urchins, clams, gastropods and all of the other bountiful fossil blessings of Central Texas. This was in an intermittent creek cut in the Comanche Peak formation, Lower Cretaceous period, western Bell County, Texas. The scale in the background is inches (sorry, no metric device readily available). The oval shape of the fossil is 1.5 cm by 1 cm. All of the lines you see making up the fossil are crystalized sediment within the limestone matrix. My 8 year old was excited about how "sparkly" it looked under the flashlight. In a couple of the pictures you can see what appears to be a very small section of the side of the fossil. I am stumped on this one. My hunch is that i'm seeing the inside of an organism that we typically get to see the outside of. But i don't know what the insides of the urchins look like. Seems too oval to be a cross section of phymosoma texanum. Maybe it was a plant or coral? Could it be a flattened-out, crystalized Parasmilia?
  3. It's been a few years of hunting for me now. What began as a spontaneous trip to North Sulphur River, spurred by childhood nostalgia, has become something of a gnawing beast that constantly nibbles at the corner of my consciousness. What will the weather be like this weekend? When will I have another three-day break? Is the car road-trip ready? Do I have the right foot ware for the locale? Is that unprepped fossil an ammonite or a nautilus? When will I finally find my first mosasaur tooth? And on and on... I've often wondered if this is a pre-midlife crisis. The time I get to spend outside is usually enjoyable, even when the weather is inhospitable. Is it madness that I am picking up ammonites at Lake Texoma among rocks covered in icicles? Possibly. Why worry about freezing cold water creeping over the tops over your boots when there is a beautiful vertebra with an ebony patina sitting in the gravel bar across the channel? I've hunted the well known sites up until now. North Sulphur River, Whiskey Bridge, Post Oak Creek. I have still much to learn about these places and the fossilized remains found there. But alas the gnawing beast isn't satisfied with only a handful of locations, regardless of their charm and ability to still surprise. So with a few carefully coordinated research tools, new sites began to slowly appear on my radar. I'm gettin' around. Considering this was one of my first scouting missions, this trip was pretty productive. The finds below are all from Bosque County, and likely came from several units: Comanche Peak, Edwards, and Fort Worth. All Cretaceous. Urchins, clams, gastropod steinkerns, oysters, prints. Let me know what you think. Until the gnawing starts again, ladies and gentlemen...

  5. Comanche Peak Rings

    .are they burrows or something else? Maybe coral? Found in Walnut Clay formation of Comanche Peak, Hood County, TX...about 1.5 inches long Found this in matrix and need help identifying.....found in Walnut Clay formation of Comanche Peak in Hood County....rings are approximately 3/8 of an inch long and are not connected. Lots of gastropods, urchins, and ammonites in the immediate area. At first I thought this was a gastropod, but the "ribs" are not connected at all. Thanks in advance for your help.
  6. Is This A Tooth?

    Need help with identification...found in Comanche Peak formation in Hood Co., TX, mostly marine fossils in the area....had trouble with photo 1 and 2 rotating 90 degrees, sorry....
