  1. Post Oak Creek 10-5-20

    Here are pictures from a recent trip to Post Oak Creek in Sherman Texas. Found several shark teeth but all of them broken and most in bad shape. I also found several non-fossilized material. I'm not sure if it is modern or a little older. It is all small. The one with the jaw still has two small teeth incased in it. Also I have no idea what the teeth are that are rounded. One of the pictures is a partial shark tooth still in the matrix.

  2. North Sulphur River 10-2-20

    Here are a few pictures from another recent trip to NSR. Nothing special again but also a few interesting items I have no idea that they are. Anyone know what some of these pictures are of?

  3. Cool rainy day at NSR due to rain this morning, but place was very muddy. Every time I walked I was carrying additional five pounds of mud so slow going. Not much erosion going on yet. Waiting for bigger rain to wash down the river maybe this weekend. First one was either a juvenile Mosasaur or Plesiosaur bone, not sure which part of the bone though. Could be the paddle or humorus bone. Second one was rudist colony that was attached side by side. This one was the first rudist colony found other than bits and pieces.
  4. Found this need help please

    Found this in my neighborhood, I live in Dallas Texas USA. As far as geological history when I research the area it mentions most fossils found in Dallas Texas from the cretaceous period. It is small and looks like a piece of something but have no idea so now I’m here... any information would be helpful thanks. Length wise it’s 7.5 cm, width is 5.5 cm, and height is about 3 cm and the other is slanted so thing less than half of one cm.
  5. Lake Texoma early Cretaceous oyster

    Duck Creek oyster ID please. This was the only one found in this area. I found numerous other early Cretaceous bivalves in Lake Texoma like Amphidonte walkeri, Graphea, Neithea.
  6. Two Ammonites and 2 Bone Pieces

    Hey Everyone, Needed to take some PTO due to everything at work. Those 14-16 hour days get to you after awhile. As is my normal I spent quite a bit of my mornings at NSR. Had quite a bit of luck. I found three things this morning I need help with. I was near the Bushy Creek meeting with the NSR. Some material had fallen from above. It was a mixture of the red matrix and a mustard color matrix. Actually quite a bit had fallen. Spent about an hour looking through it and found the ammonites and one bone. Smaller ammonite is reddish and fairly stable. Larger is the mustard color and very unstable. Only prep on either was with water and a soft bristle toothbrush. I am thinking Pachydiscus (P.) Paulsoni for them but something is off for me. Also, in one of the pics of the larger is that the shell fossilized? One bone reminds me a vert but the three things on the one side I have not seen. Other looks like part of a sheel fragment but have no idea what from? As always, any help is appreciated.
  7. Plesiosaur Tooth

    Have a creek not far from my house that I hunt regularly that turns up a few goodies on every trip. Went out hunting last week and found this partial tooth. I have found Mosasaur bones and teeth here but am pretty sure this tooth is from something else. My thought is plesiosaur due to it having much heavier striations and also looks to have a pretty good curve to it. Thank you for any insight.

  9. Atco Peculiarity

    In June of 2018, Kieth Minor alerted me to a new apartment complex that was being developed in the middle Atco Formation of North Texas. They were cutting a huge cubic area of rock out of a hillside, piling up multiple large mounds of Atco which seemed to be begging for someone to carefully search out their freshly exposed contents. On the 15th of that month we got to the site, Kieth asked permission of the site foreman for us to carefully take a look around during the crew's work hours, and we made our way into the pit. We were on a mission to save as many ammonites as we could. FIG 1: First impressions.
  10. N. Texas Unknown Vert

    Found this vert in a Farmers Branch gravel bed. (Farmers Branch is a suburb of N. Dallas) Hoping you could help me identify it!
  11. T. peramplum #1

    From the album Fauna and Flora of the Austin Group in Texas

    This specimen is the largest of its genus in my collection, and the largest known to me in any collection. It measures about 7 cm in height, and 4.3 cm in diameter. It retains its tubercles in the most mature whorl sections that are preserved well enough to tell. The specimen is quite crushed.
  12. Post Oak Creek

    My Post Oak Creek take from Sunday February 23, 2020, rainy gloomy day and a short visit. But very successful. I took a friend and she found her first tooth.
  13. Identification assistance

    I need assistance with identification of several items. Any thoughts. North Texas cretaceous.
  14. Fossil Shell?

    I live in Flower Mound, Texas, Denton County. I find many fossilized shells in the ground as I garden and stuff. The other day, this one popped up and looked different enough that I am curious if it is a shell or something else. The one surface is much smoother than I see with the other "clam" shell fossils I find. The sides also appear to be thinner than usual. Thanks for any help.
  15. North Texas Find

    Howdy! I live in North Texas (Denton County) by a really interesting area geologically and I found this thing while cleaning trash out of the creekbed today. I'm not sure if it's even a fossil but it's been one of the coolest things I've found (usually I only find Gryphaea and old pottery). Birding is usually my thing so I figured I might as well ask some people who know better! Let me know if y'all need better photos. Thanks in advance for the help!
  16. NSR: Red Bed Unknown

    I dug this directly from the so-called “red bed” (making it Permian) in the north sulphur river. I thought it might be petrified wood, but I am confused as to what the piece is embedded in it. Any ideas?
  17. Stumping me beyond belief

    While I am more knowledgeable about fossils than when I joined, this thing is confusing me. It is porous with fine holes and appears to be bone, but it could be wood. Any clues?
  18. Need ID

    What did I find?
  19. Possible horse and crocodile tooth

    Found these two teeth in a creek in north texas. I believe the first may be a partial horse and the second a crocodile? Any help would be appreciated as always.
  20. Vertebra, vertebrae or I give up

    Today in north texas I found this piece that appears to be fish vertebrae (possibly 2?)… what do y’all think
  21. What did I stumble upon?

    Found on the north sulfur river today. It’s cross hatched… I know it’s a fossil of something, but I am clueless as to what. A girl I met with found something similar and we had no clue.
  22. Is it a vertebra or cross section of bone?

    Found this today on the North Sulfur River. I can’t tell if it’s a vertebra or a cross section of bone or something completely different- I’m not familiar with the concentric circle in it.
  23. My apologies for posting so many topics without really contributing to other users threads. Im just excited that I found a message board where I can share these finds with people who can appreciate them Here is my very meager collection of fossils from Glen Rose Texas at the Paluxy river. The first time I went I was amazed at how many invertebrate specimens could be found so simply on the ground. The region is late Cretaceous Eagle Ford group. I have yet to identify them all but will edit the topic later once I read through a few other members posts and discover what these may be based on similar fossils.
