I picked up this Mariella sp. ammonite yesterday and got bitten by a 100m year old shark! I mostly think of shark teeth in North Texas as coming from the Upper Cretaceous but I found this in the Grayson Formation at the Rayzor Ranch site in Denton. I think it's the lingual surface of a lateral tooth. it may be either Cretolumna appendiculata or Cretodus crassidens. Who else has found shark teeth at this site?
I went hunting in the rain yesterday. It wasn’t one of my most successful hunts, but I still managed to find some cool stuff. I found this in The Grayson Formation, Cretaceous in the Denton, TX area. I had never hunted that area of the Grayson before and it was different as every area of the Grayson seems to be. I found this section of a heteromorph. I don’t believe it is a Mariella. I am wondering if it could be a section of Turrilites. I believe it only has 2 rows of tubercles. Any thoughts? Side view Top down view Edge view
Today I went fossil hunting down to Denton, Texas. The weather was fairly nice with some wind. The outcome were some turrilite fragments, a ton of exogyra arietina (for selling), an echinoid, some Cetaceous/Jurassic sea floor, brachiopods and a clam.
