  1. This little thing may be too small and too busted up to ID, but it's just really lovely. I'd be happy for any info. Found near Canyon Lake, Glen Rose Formation. Thanks y'all!
  2. I found "A SPOT" finally!! Found 7 species of echinoids, and am over the moon! I am able to ID some but not all. Could use a little help please! Location: Comal County near Canyon Lake TX. Cretaceous Glen Rose. I'll post pics of the others i have tentatively ID'd in the comments post, I would appreciate confirmation on those too. Here are the ones I am not sure about: I thought these first ones were Coenholectypus, but they are very "off center". But they could just be squished. Is this Pseudodiadema perhaps? Perhaps too small and busted up a specimen to ID. Thanks for your help!!

  6. North Carolina Mosasaur Tooth

    I have decided to take a break from shells and delve into the vertebrate world for awhile. In going through several trips worth of North Carolina Cretaceous material, I came across this incomplete tooth which I believe is from a mosasaur. Reading through prior posts I know how difficult they are to identify but I am hoping that there are enough distinguishing characteristics to be able to identify by genus. The size of the tooth is 12 mm x 12 mm x 6 mm. I took pictures with my iphone so if the consensus is better quality pics are needed, I'll drag out the DSLR.
  7. Waco Pit Permits

    Today I called the Army Corps of Engineers to get a permit to collect at the Waco Pit. I was told that there is a limit on how many fossils you are allowed to keep. The limit per day is two. I thought anyone planning to collect there should know this.
  8. Ralph Johnson of MAPS and Bill Shankle of DVPS and I filled in for Carl Mehling of AMNH in NYC to lead a trip of a AMNH sponsored trip to Ramanessin brook this past Thrusday . At first we became concerned when the bus had not arrived on time and Ralph and I went looking for them just in case they were parked at the other school down the road and when we came back we noticed a yellow school bus parked at the other end of the lot and I mentioned to him they the bus looked empty or that they maybe all little people and when we got closer we noticed that they were all middle school kids all 23 of them.....we were not expecting a bus load of kids ....Ohhh Boyyyy. No wonder Carl couldn't make it......LOL Good thing we had a bunch of extra screens and shovels with us. At first they didn't find much and the kids started to lose interest so I started grabbing the screens and filled them up and set them on the gravel bars and told them to start looking threw them and soon after they started finding teeth and before you know it most of them were finding fossils and I couldn't keep up with the demand for new loads of screens filled with the stream matrix All in all we had a great time...I know I did. I even found a nice Ischyodus Bifurcatus
  9. Bones-Possible Pterosaur

    I have finally found the courage to display just 3 of the fossils that I have...as I am just a "baby" in terms of even the novice hobbyists. I cannot guarantee that they are all completely clear of matrix material. I am concerned that my as of yet limited knowledge, could/would likely negatively affect the "Arrested Beauty" that has been set before us; as a "annal" before before written language. These fossils were found at home, in my backyard near Maple Valley in King County Washington. As I have said before, I am new at this, but as far as I can tell from the limited information I have found in my search for clues, the area where I live has formations from the Mesozoic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. My best educated guess (if you can call mine educated), is that at least number 1 and 2 (from left to right) are foot/hand bones from a Pterosaur. I am fairly confidant that #3 is one end of a femur. Unsure of the animal given that to me, they all look so very similar. I am absolutely not confident enough to make a guess as to the specific species. I am skeptical of my general assessment, given that I have found no evidence that any other fossils of the like have been found in the area; immediate or otherwise. I have also found what I believe to be small diameter pieces of fossilized ivory/tusk here. With that being said, please be gentle. I keep talking myself out of even posting these out of fear of making yet another fool of myself (only in a different way). I defer to my much much more experienced peers. Please do let me know if any other angles, etc. are needed for identification.
  10. Unidentfied Moroccan Tooth

    Hello. I was wondering if anyone here could identify this tooth from Morocco. It is from the early- middle cretaceous. I don't really know much else as like most fossil from Morocco, the exact location where they came from in unknown. With that said one of the interesting details with the tooth is that is has a ridge running along the sides. The picture you can see it best in is picture 2 but it doesn't show up that well. If there are any more questions about the fossil please ask me and I will try to answer them as best as possible.
