  1. Mosasaur bone in situ

    From the album North Sulfur River

    Found 5/20/2020
  2. Mosasaur vertebra in situ

    From the album North Sulfur River

    Found 5/20/2020
  3. Artifact

    From the album North Sulfur River

    You can also find worked stones from Native Americans at NSR. I'm not certain of the age. This is the first one I've found.
  4. Shark teeth (and sawfish)

    From the album North Sulfur River

    Shark teeth (at least in my experience) are really hard to find at NSR. The best method would probably be to sift for them in gravel, but I've yet to do that. The odd looking one is actually the base of sawfish rostral tooth.
  5. Mammal teeth

    From the album North Sulfur River

    What's neat about NSR is that you can find Pleistocene-aged remains right next to the bones of marine reptiles from the Late Cretaceous. The river flushes everything out of the walls and mixes it all together.
  6. Ammonite

    From the album North Sulfur River

  7. NSR Hunt 5/20/2020

    Hey y'all, just got back from a trip to the NSR. Haven't been in a while, so it was nice to get back and find some neat stuff. I've only been 4-5 times and I finally found a sizeable vert chunk. I also found some large fish bones which I believe to be from xiphactinus. I also found what's probably a rock, but I grabbed it in case it was some worked piece of stone. I have no knowledge whatsoever on arrowheads and artifacts so someone else can be the judge of that.
  8. Weird find

    Found today, Ladonia Fossil Park, North Sulphur River, in 4" of water among river rocks and the occasional piece of ammonite with suture pattern. I don't know what period. A little over an inch long, black/dark gray, 1/2 inch thick at the widest part, has holes on the underside.
  9. T. proriger Tooth Fossil Profile

    From the album North Sulfur River

    A worn Tylosaur tooth from Ladonia, TX. Found Oct. 7, 2018.
  10. Finally made a trip to the North Sulphur River. As a first timer, I went straight to the Ladonia Fossil Park. It has a large parking area with clear access to the river bottom. Keep in mind, the access is good, but the steps are HUGE. Going down isn't too difficult, but getting back up had me climbing them on my hands/knees. There is an ATV trail on the east side of the bridge that I was told has a more gradual slope, but you'll need to keep an eye open for snakes/insects, as its heavily overgrown with vegetation. I had a great time searching the river bed and banks for fossils. I found tons of baculite segments and lots of vertabrate bone fragments (likely mosasaur). Very few well preserved specimens with the majority worn beyond identification. Also found a few oyster shells, gastropods, and shark teeth. Tools aren't necessary, but you may want to carry scraping tool or a small pry bar for working the bank exposures. Screen boxes also come in handy for sifting through sediments in the river bed. A few words to the wise: - during spring/summer, be sure to wear sunscreen and stay hydrated - use a walking stick to steady yourself and for testing areas ahead of your walk path - try to stay on gravel bars, as the mud can be deep especially along edge of the banks - when walking through water between gravel bars try to avoid walking on shale layers as it is extremely slippery - be aware that there is lots of broken glass, concrete rubble, rusty metal, and other debris - for the above reasons and the fact that they are not very supportive, I would strongly advise against flip flops with firsthand knowledge (in the words of Jimmy Buffet, "I blew out my flip flop, stepped on a pop top........." ) And lastly, always check the water level of the river before making the trek - go to the National Weather Service for North Sulphur River near Cooper, TX (Gauge CPPT2) https://water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?wfo=fwd&gage=cppt2&hydro_type=0 I can't wait to go back.
  11. North Sulfur River Fossil ID

    I suspect this is an ammonite but I am not sure. I found it at Ladonia Fossil Park in Texas. Any ideas?
  12. North Sulfur River Fossil ID

    Hello! I Found this while fossil hunting at Ladonia Fossil Park in Texas, anyone know what it could be? Thank you!
  13. Snail and something else. Sulphur River

    OK so far everything I've posted has not been a fossil. I'm sure that this first one with the little snail dude is, but how about the second one? I feel like I can see something on that rock and I'm not sure what it is. Also, is the snail a fossil or is he considered something else. These were all found in Ladonia Fossil Park in North Texas, Sulphur River, Cretaceous period.
  14. Ok, I hope this is a fossil, or something other than a rock. I'm not going to guess as to what I think it looks like, I will just go on the photos since I have no idea what it is. Thank you for your help. Location: Ladonia Fossil Park, North Sulphur River Crustaceous Period fossils, from what I have read Weight: 11.56 OZ
  15. Need help identifying. Thank you in advance for your help. Laura Location: Ladonia Fossil Park, Ladonia, Texas, North Sulphur River Weight: 13.83 Ounces
  16. Hello, I am new to this site so I apologize in advance if I post incorrectly. I went to Ladonia, Texas, to the fossil park and found a lot of "red" type rocks or fossils. I need help identifying what they are and basically if they are even fossils. I have a lot of them, so to keep this simple, I will just post photos of all the same item, but in various angles. Thank you, Laura Location: Ladonia Fossil Park, Ladonia, Texas Period: From what I have read, fossils here are from the Cretaceous Period/Mesozoic Era. Weight: 5.34 Ounces
