    Fossils in Comal co. Texas

    Hi all I have found quite a few of these recently In Comal County,Texas they are faily common on this particular site but the one on the left is the biggest one I have found with most being in between sizes of the right and up to half the size of the left one. Do y’all know what genus and or species they are? Sorry I read y’all prefer things in metrics, I didn’t have a fully metric tape with me at my house but figured it was better than nothing and centimeters and mm are there just not labeled. The large one was found yesterday. Thanks I’m advance!! Happy hunting! Connor.
  2. Hi all! Brand new member here but long time geological fan and rockhounder. I am new to Texas and my job site has quite a bit of echinoid and bivalve fossils, and I was out rummaging around in the woods looking for some fossils when a “stone” on the soil surface stood out like a sore thumb to all the geological type base material in the area. In one little pocket in the under brush of cedar I noticed crystalline formations on material that was unique to the whole area. I am new to the whole geological formations but I was assuming it was in the glen rose formation type area. Anyone based on lo

    Tooth ID help

    I found this piece and several others this past weekend. This is one of the smaller pieces, roughly 15”X9”X7”X2” thick. Please take into consideration my lack of fossil cleaning skills. It was found in the Hill Country of Texas, Bandera County.

    Leptosalenia texana

  5. This was a small plate that I found years ago off of US Highway 290, west of Austin, Texas. It is about the size of the palm of my hand, loaded with these micro fossils. I looked a long time, several different trips, before I found one this nice. It is a very thin layer about 1/2 inches thick. These fossils separate the lower and upper Glen Rose formation. They are very small, about 3 mm.

    Straight lines

    Found this in Northern Medina County, Texas. The area I found it in is the southern edge of the hill country, going down into the brush country of South Texas. With the naked eye, these lines are perfectly straight and parallel. Can anyone tell me what these could be? The size of the area containing the lines is about the size of a US postage stamp. Many thanks.

    Petrified Creature found in Canyon Lake

    I found this petrified Creature in Canyon Lake, Texas next to the Guadalupe River, but on private property with the property owners permission. I was wondering if anyone knew what it is?

  9. Hello all, I am trying to identify various fossils from the Cretaceous Glen Rose Formation around Spring Branch, Texas. Could anyone verify my identifications... The first is gastropod molds which I assumed to be either a Turritella or Cerithium species. The second I named Nerinea texana. The third is an ornamented urchin indicative of the Glen Rose formation called Salenia texana. Finally the curly fossils I am unsure if those are gastropods? And the final fossil is a clam of sorts with polychaete worms growing on it. Any idea what this clam may be?

    From the album: MY FOSSIL Collection - Dpaul7

    Tapes decepta Mollusk Cast SITE LOCATION: Glen Rose Formation, Bandera County, Texas, USA TIME PERIOD: Lower Cretaceous (100-145 million years ago) Data: Clams and their relatives (oysters, scallops, and mussels) are often called bivalves (or bivalved mollusks) because their shell is composed of two parts called valves. Bivalves have a long history. Their fossils first appear in rocks that date to the middle of the Cambrian Period, about 510 million years ago. Although the group became increasingly abundant about 400 million years ago d

  12. After several attempts to identify a vertebrae I had found in the upper Glen Rose Formation in Hood Co. Texas Troodon had input that was helpful. His interpretation of the vert as being crockish had me digging deeper into attempting an ID. Although there is very little information of vertebrate finds in the Glen Rose material there is some. I found it in Wikipedia as possibly: Genus Pachycheilosuchus, a crocodylomorph. The description of the procoelous vertebrae has me bamfoozled. It has a description of the verts as cupped on the anterior and rounded as posterio

    Small dino tail bone

    Found in clay strata sandwiched between layers of dino print limestone. Three different strata containing prints. Bone is shown also in trip section with latest print. If someone has an inkling as to a species please post away. I am going back as soon as possible. (BTW: Most bone material is crushed from the dino traffic in the immediate area) Bone2stone
  14. Took an extra day off for the Labor day weekend to relax in the country side away from the Dallas Tx area. Quite peaceful in my travel trailer under the huge Spanish Oaks. Too much tequila that night before the dig did not help the situation, found it difficult to roll out of bed the next morning. My bud promised me a visit to his print site with Professor Anderson. Gas a little hard to come by but he managed to find a station with a rationed supply. Finnally he came out and I got to handle some facinating finds he had recently made and he too got to see some of my s

    Lunatia or Tylostoma?

    My family just returned from a three day, New Years visit to Boerne ("Bernie"), Texas. On our way home, we stopped of by a construction site on the northwest side of San Antonio. I believe it was Glen Rose Formation. We found some nice specimens, including gastropods, brachiopods and even some echinoids. The largest specimens are shown below. The scale is in centimeters. My question is, are these specimens Tylostoma sp. or Lunatia pedernales? I've seen them identified on TFF as Tylostoma. But in the HGMS Texas Cretaceous Gastropods book, they describe Tylostoma of similar sizes as ha
  16. Happy Holidays TFF!!!! I ventured out over the weekend to see what I could find....hope you enjoy My hunting site:
  17. Greetings TFF!!! Sorry I have been gone for a while. I had to have another spine surgery, and will not be recovered until 2013. I broke doctors orders yesterday and went on a hour hunt....now I see why he said to WAIT as the pain is horrible...but worth it!! As some of you know, the lake where I live over the past few months went up approx 17 feet, covering my fossil hunting site, but now the water has dropped and the fossils are exposed again! However the landscape is so different than before the rains. I have hunted this site for over 6+ years and to my suprise, thanks to the rains and the
  18. Well, when the fossils start calling, I must answer Here are some site pics and a few pics of my finds. I only spent an hour hunting as to not cause pain in my back, so I took several site pics so I didnt have to keep bending over and picking up fossils ...But you know me and my gastropods...had to bend over and pick those up... I have hunted this site for over 6 years and I am still BLOWN away by how many fossils are still at the site! Its also amazing how so many different species inhabited the tiny area I hunt. Amazing! Enjoy! Continued*
