Hello fellow members, I recently took a trip down to Crystal Beach, in Bolivar peninsula, Texas. I was on the beach for about an hour. I kept on finding small sized fossilized fragments of bone (probably from the late Pleistocene Beaumont Clays). I found 4 small pieces this past Monday. They are all just small fragments, probably not identifiable. I was about to go back to the car after walking for about 2 miles on the beach, when I stumbled upon this. It has a hole in it, and is oddly symmetrical. It looks like it’s made out of pottery. I really don’t know what else this could be, other than a Native American artifact. Let me know what y’all think this could be.

I know these are not the super rare and large species sharks teeth that can be found in other parts of the country, but I do want to share them to promote fossil hunting on the Texas beaches. This nice little haul was made with a few leisurely walks on the beaches of Bolivar Peninsula (Crystal Beach) in Texas. Bolivar is just a ferry ride across from Galveston, TX which is probably the better known beach in our area, just 45 minutes drive from Houston. Anyway, for those of you who may be traveling to Galveston or Bolivar this summer, make sure to spend an hour or two walking the beaches and perusing the shell piles at the waters edge. I almost guarantee you will find a few sharks teeth if you look hard enough!
