  1. Hi everyone, Today I was in Weymouth (south of England) when I stumbled upon a popular fossil shop. The shop specializes in selling a variety of both fossil replicas and 'fossils'. While I was there I stumbled across a selection of Mosasaur teeth with the root kept inside a locked cabinet. I decided to purchase one of them for £10. So what I was wondering is if the tooth and root are real or not as I am still sceptical. Can anyone give any insight?
  2. Fossil Mix

  3. Sulphur River Texas!

    I did a half day hunt in Northeast Texas. It was hot! The big flathead catfish was keeping me company.
  4. Northeast Texas Hunt!

    Fun hunt yesterday. I found some huge broken sawfish teeth, shark teeth, enchodus jaw and teeth, mosasaur verts, big heart clam which I've never found in the Sulphur river area and a killer petrified wood Gary point. It got hot around 2PM so I got out early.
  5. More Shark Week!

    I'm still celebrating shark week. Here's some cool mosasaur bones I found with shark scavenging marks.
  6. My Growing Collection!

    My man cave is coming along nicely. Most are personal finds from Northeast Texas. A few were gifts or purchases.
  7. Mosasaur Tooth Fragment

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    Mosasaur tooth fragment. Scale bar = 1 cm. Collected 6/21/18.
  8. Look like today was going to be one of the last mild temperature days with highs only in the low 90's, before things began to heat up again here in Northeast Texas, North Sulphur River area. Went out to an area I have visited in the past but found a creek that was new to me. I was surprised to find some rather impressive fossils right out in the open. One nice mosasaur vertebrae, fish vertebrae, jaw bone, large bone pieces that may be remains of larger worn vertebrae, and a couple of artifacts.
  9. Mosasaur or dinosaur vert?

    Hello! I'm leaning towards Mosasaur on this but that's mostly based on the fact that Mosasaur vertabra are a lot more common here than dinosaur. I found it in a Monmouth County, NJ Cretaceous deposit. The reason I'm posting this here is because the structure looked a little different than my other Mosasaur verts and upon further review, I noticed it had those bumpy patterns in the concave end that I don't see on my other Mosasaur verts. It's also pretty heavy but appears to be highly mineralized so that might or might not be a factor. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
  10. Saw these at a rock shop in Custer and was a bit skeptical what do you guys think? For $9 each?
  11. Took advantage of the unusual cooler weather today to visit the North Sulphur River in northeast Texas. Several rain storms over the last few weeks have moved stuff around but the flow now is pretty slow. Walked the main channel a few hundred feet near the water with no luck, so decided to try the dryer areas hoping something has been missed by previous fossil hunters. Finally came across a few vertebrae pieces and then found an intact Mosasaur vert. However, the finds of the day were artifacts as I went down the river. The last one was the biggest and best one I have ever found on the NSR. The bad news is that it will be hard to top this day on future trips but this is not the first time I have said that!
  12. Mosasaur jaw in matrix

    So I got this jaw that I was talking about and I still kinda want to clean the matrix and I read somewhere that if you put it in water it gets removed is this the case? Also I see white things like bones stuck in the matrix as well ( like those seen in the picture) are these bones or just rocks? Thank you very much for your time.
  13. Hello, could you please tell me what kind of mosasaur teeth are these? Thank you very much.
  14. New to Collecting

    New to collecting and this site, thought I’d debut my small collection in my first post. Any comments or tips would be appreciated.
  15. Fun morning Northeast Texas hike with a heat index of almost 110 degs by the time I left after lunch. The Tylosaur vert is worn but huge and weighs close to 2 lbs. The Tylosaur jaw section was almost buried as you can tell from the in situ pic. The artifacts were a nice little bonus. I waked in tracks for over half the day so I would love to see what the first guy found.
  16. I decided to brave the heat and go hunting in the north Sulphur river after two huge rises and did it pay off I found a lot of good finds but the find of the day was the lower half of the left dentrey of what I believe is a Platecarpus. I knew right away what it was when I walked up on it and said a bad word.
  17. Vertebra

    I found this in a central TX creek where I regularly find shark teeth and lower Cretaceous fossils. Thanks
  18. A Ptychodus Morning!

    Killer morning at Post Oak Creek TX. I found the following three types of Ptychodus teeth today. Whipplei, Mortoni, and Mammalaris.
  19. Mosasaur jaw in matrix

    Hello, so I was thinking about buying this piece but i would love it if I could remove the matrix from it to make it look better. Is this possible? Thanks-
  20. I was browsing online and found this tooth for sale. The seller says it belongs to hainosaurus and that it is from Ouled Abdoun, Morocco. I was wondering if this tooth was real and if it had any restoration to it. Also, can anyone verify the species? Thank you.
  21. 6/21/19 Trip haul

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    All the fossils I found in the span of a couple of hours on my first trip to POC. Scale bar = 1 cm. Collected 6/21/19.
  22. Post Oak Creek ID

    Hey y'all, I went to POC for the first time yesterday and came back with some stuff I need help ID'ing. 1. Shark teeth - Cretodus crassidens? 2. Large shark tooth - Cretoxyrhina? 3. shark tooth - Scapanorhynchus? 4. Enamel/tooth frag - mosasaur? 5. shark tooth - Cretolamna appendiculata? All scale bars = 1 cm. The enamel (4) is < .5 cm in length. 4 is definitely not shark - too thick - and reminds me of crocodiles, but I haven't heard of any crocs there. I also found another mosasaur tooth frag. I know this can be really difficult, so I really appreciate your help!
  23. How are fossils formed

    Going really basic here being new on the fossil game i wanted to know how a fossil gets created because i have read that the bone gets replaced by rock or sediments and they take its original form but if that's the case then we are not holding teeth, we are holding rocks in the form of teeth when holding a fossilized tooth for example. I don't really know so if someone could please explain to me if the fossil is actual tooth like it was back then or it becomes rock and the general process it would be much appreciated.
  24. How to study fossils.

    So having a small fossil collection i have thought of the possibility of studying the fossils especially the dinosaur teeth but the problem is im not a scientist so i don't know how to study them so if someone could tell me if cheap fossils like these could be studied and how it would be largely appreciated. (Collection includes 2 spinosaurus teeth, a meg tooth, 2 mosasaur teeth, mammoth hair, carcharodontosaurus tooth) Thanks.
