  1. The back end of our vacation plans got blown out of the water by covid19 so we are making some adjustments. Currently we are slated to be at Theissen quarry in OK in late June. Any chance the water at Lake Texoma is low enough to make it worth the ride? Or any other suggestions in that general region? I am heading east/northeast for home in PA after.
  2. Xiphactinus Vertebrae?

    I posted this while back, but no ID yet. I'm thinking this is a Xiphactinus vertebrae. Anybody agree?
  3. stromatolite??

    I found this a while back, and now I'm wondering if it could be a stromatolite. Though, it could just be some sedimentary formation. It was found in the red river/lake texoma in texas. Any thoughts or insight would be much appreciated, thank you! In the second photo, I sanded a bit of the side to show the layering.
  4. Heteromorph ammo?

    Found these next to the creeks in nearby Lake Texoma. I'm thinking this maybe the heteromorph ammos, but not quiet sure. Thing I have noticed are tight coil patterns that are not present on these ammo pieces.
  5. Duck Creek Formation oyster ID

    I found these two oysters few weeks ago near Lake Texoma ( Early Cretaceous). Still trying to figure out what it is. I saw a similar oyster called Pycnodonte vesicularis (Lamarck, 1806) , but not 100% sure. I see a paper published for Pycnodonte vesicularis that was found in S. America. An assessment of latest Cretaceous Pycnodonte vesicularis (Lamarck, 1806) shells as records for palaeoseasonality: a multi-proxy investigation https://www.clim-past.net/14/725/2018/cp-14-725-2018.pdf
  6. Lake Texoma Fossil ID please

    Can someone please identify this for me It's from Lake Texoma, Grayson county, TX. Found Nov. 2019
  7. Unknown shells

    What is this? I found these pieces next to a creek on duck creek formation nearby Lake Texoma. It appears to be a shell, but doesn't look like any other shells I found elsewhere.
  8. I found some vertebrae and tooth from a creek that were flowing next to the Lake Texoma today. Those tooth looks like shark or fish tooth. Not sure about the vertebrae though. It appears to be a cretaceous fish. Also on long tooth, not sure whether that's a fish or not. All of these were found next to washed out duck creek grey sediment.
  9. The Ammonite Vacation Jackpot

    As I was heading home from vacation in Oklahoma I heard that may large ammonite specimens were found at Lake Texoma. Not wanting to pass up the opportunity to obtain some nice sized ammonite specimens I drove two hours out of my way. When I arrived I realized how massive Lake Texoma is and decided to rent a kayak to aid in my search for ammonites. Pushing my kayak out into the lake I paddled at a nice leisurely pace. After realizing that going slow was going to put a large dent in my wallet ($50 an hour) I decided to pick up the pace. I quickly paddle straight out to the opposite side of the lake. Finally, after 30 minutes of paddling I arrived on the shore hauling my kayak onto the shore I quickly unpacked my trusty hammer and chisel and set off down the beach. Finding nothing but a few large (and scary) spiders amongst the marl I headed down the beach in the opposite direction. Climbing the precarious rocks, I eventually found a few small specimens, but they were nowhere near the size of the rumored “monster” ammonites. As the sun was setting I stumbled upon an extremely well-preserved ammonite and decided to extract it. Unfortunately time was not on my side and the sun began to sink lower into the skies. Picking up the pace I eventually removed the top layer of the ammonite. Taking my prizes I made my way back to the kayak and pushing off once again I paddled back to the dock. Though it may not have been the “monster” I was hoping for I still got what I had (mostly) come for.
  10. Fossilized cretaceous sea worm?

    Found small sea urchin next to the ammonite in Lake Texoma Duck creek formation over the weekend. While I was cleaning the sea urchin, I noticed something that caught my eyes. It appears to be a small worm that lived in Cretaceous sea, gotten attached to the sea urchin and fossilized at the same time. Anybody familiar with sea worms like this?
  11. Lake Texoma, Ammonite

    Over winter break, I decided to head north for some fossil hunting. In particular, I wanted to find a complete ammonite for my collection. In the past I have only found pieces. So I went to Lake Texoma and was happy to see that recent rains didn't make the excursion pointless. It was a little brisk at 40 degrees and a 10 mph wind from the north. The first ammonite I found was complete, easy to excavate, and entirely too large to make the hike back to the car enjoyable. So I left it behind for the next person willing to haul 30-40 lbs. back to the parking lot. The next ammonite fell within my weight specifications, and appeared to be encased in relatively soft situ. I excavated it within a few minutes. Here are a few more that I found on the same trip.

  14. Lake Texoma

    Good Morning! My wife and kids are spending a few days on the Texas side of Lake Texoma (Gordonville, Texas). Are there any places nearby that might yield a few of the famous ammonites from this region? Thanks in advance, Daniel
  15. Rock or fossil?

    Only reason I think this may be something is because I found it next to four associated shark vertebrae. It's from Lake Texoma.
  16. I have some extra fossils I want to trade. I'm looking for trilobites or megalodon teeth but I will consider other offers. The first group is from the Grayson Marl Formation in Denton County, Texas. It includes two Mariella ammonites, two shells, two clams, three brachiopods, two partial Cymatoceras nautiloids and one complete Cymatoceras.
  17. One night during our trip to Texas, most of the family wanted to be bums, so my daughter and I went for a hike at Lake Texoma to look for this ammonite beach that we had read about. We parked west of the bridge between Texas and Oklahoma where there is a boat dock and trails. We followed the shoreline west, and most of the ground is broken limestone for a beach. We hiked for a good hour+ before we started really seeing any ammonites. There were many fossil oysters to be had along the way, which can be seen in the car charger picture. I was beginning to wonder if this ammonite beach really existed when we finally started finding some pieces. When we finally got to the location, it was by a bay, and the ammonites were plentiful. The problem is, trying to get a whole one of these guys out, and then carry it all the way back to the car was a no go. We took back a few fragments, but there was no way I was hauling one of these bad boys all the way back as they weigh probably 50-100lbs easily. Luckily we had found the big ammonites a couple days before with Bob from here, so I didn't feel the need to go all out. Here are some pictures of our "catch and release" in situ adventure as well as a few things we took out with us. "
  18. I have three groups of fossils from Texas to trade. I am mainly interested in trilobites, Megalodon teeth, and Ammonites but I will accept other fossils. The first group is from Lake Texoma. It includes an unprepared ammonite, a idiohamites ammonite, a partial ammonite, echinoids, clams and an unprepared echinoid.
  19. Took a little trip to the Denison Dam area of Lake Texoma(border of OK and TX). I pretty much grew up here so it was nice getting back. Such a beautiful area. We had massive erosion after record floods last year. Fossils were abound and I got some neat pics.
  20. The lure of ammonites was strong, but with the US Army Corps of Engineers regulations regarding fossil hunting on USACE-managed land, I figured I'd play it safe & only collect photographs of what I saw. It was a bit refreshing to walk out of a fossil site without what felt like 500 pounds of rock in my backpack!
  21. Dallas Paleontological Society got permission for a group "casual collector" hunt at Lake Texoma from the US Army Corps of Engineers. This was my first Texoma hunt. Here's what I found: An almost-complete Mortoniceras sp. ammonite. I'm getting closer to finding a complete ammonite! A chunk of Mortoniceras sp. ammonite with a piece of the limestone "mold" that it came out of.
  22. Help Identify Cretaceous Ammonite

    Hi, I found this beauty at lake texoma. Upper Cretaceous era, Eagle Ford I think. Is it Oxytropidoceras? It's in really good shape. Both sides are present. I liked to had a coronary when it popped right out of the limestone. It's size is 9" x 7 1/4" x 1 3/8"
  23. Lake Texoma

    In a couple of months will be at Tanglewood Resort and Conference Center on Lake Texoma in Pottsboro, TX. Never been there but know from reading an older book that Lake Texoma is a great place to hunt fossils and possibly find some treasures my daughter and I have not seen yet. Anyone have any suggestions on where and how to look in that immediate area? You can emial me or post here. Ahead of time, thank you so much. Have not been hunting in a while and only have in Texas Hill Country and Sulfer River so excited to get to go some place new and another chance to search for treasure!
