LSCHNELLE posted a topic in Fossil IDWhat genus or species is this? Any ideas? I found this small jaw fragment (triangular form - first 5 pics) in the Lower South Bosque Member (Lower Turonian) of Eagle Ford Shale here in Travis County today. I see 7 spots for teeth of which all but one are significantly damaged or worn down. The size is 17mm x 20mm and 10mm tall including jaw. These are the best images I can get with my cell phone. I have found individual 5 to 7 mm tall teeth in this layer also that might fit in this jaw. Could it be a fish instead? Maybe Enchodus? I've also found a pycnodont (last three pics) fish jaw in this layer - slightly smaller sized.
Hello, I live in Austin, TX, and my house sits on top of the Glen Rose formation from the late Cretaceous. I usually find bi-valve oyster shells and the like in my yard, but came across something bigger today that seems like it's from a non-invertebrate. Can anyone provide information on what this fossil might be? Thanks. Joe
