  1. Sea Urchin...Artifact?

    Hey Everyone, Found this the other day at NSR. This part of NSR is in Delta County, Tx. I was curious and thought it was an artifact as it was found in the same general area as the golodrina point, quarts crystal and pendant. Artifact website is intrigue but was wondering if it could be a urchin spine. Roughly 1.5" in length. Thoughts? Any input is appreciated. Planko
  2. Hey everyone. Yesterday while out on the NSR. I found several new items. I have been able to identify most. I do have two waiting for help in the ID section. But, lets get to why I am here. I found a Pachydiscus (P.) paulsoni piece with a piece of black material sticking out of it. This material seems to "puncture" the ammonite. I am delicately cleaning it right now and hope to have some pictures soon. Of course my thought was a broken piece of a tooth. Could it be a tooth? Or, something other that was burrowing into the ammonite upon its death or after?
  3. All were found NSR today. I am really guessing on both. I am going turtle pleural bone just from the pictures I have seen. Other than a really small mosasaur I am clueless on the verts.
  4. 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.
  5. Why I like the NSR..

    Yesterday started like most Saturday's now. Got up, had some coffee, headed to Buc-Ee's and was at the NSR close to sunrise. My plan was to go to an area that I normally cannot get to when the water is up. I don't do the canoeing thing. There was another fossil hunter there that early which is unusual. I normally see others but it is later in the morning. I grabbed my back pack and 2 lbs sledge. Then I headed out with the sun still behind them morning clouds. I get to the location, as with most NSR locations, it has been hunted quite a bit lately. I have hunted this same out stretch 4 times prior in the last three weeks. I am not talking about a very large area. Probably half an acre. Doesn't talk long to just walk it but there are bushes now, it has rocks piled up pretty high. You do have to get on yur hand and knees sometimes. Move some decent size rocks. Actually got really lucky and didn't have to bust open 100 rocks to find stuff. Everything was in the open or someone, or the river, had busted them open for me. Some of my finds from yesterday. Trigonia sp. with calcite is the largest I have found at 5in x 4in x 3.5in. I also do not normally keep the exogyra ponderosa but this one was rather large and had an attached bottom valve in pretty good shape. Weird brain looking rock. Small clams in calcite. Not sure about the other interesting looking rock. Here are some pics.
  6. Belemnites?

    Hello everyone. Picked this group of what I believe are belemnites while hunting in the NSR. There are a lot of belemnites castings within the NSR. Mainly small pieces of black or red. Blacks are much more common. Then, like the NSR seems to do, you get something like this that makes me have to come here and bug you folks. All I have done is brushed it with water and a toothbrush. It was found near the Ben Franklin bridge. Here are the questions. Is it a group of belemnites? What species if possible? Do they have the actual shell? By the way the "shell" has almost a coffee sheen to it when wet.
  7. Turtle Scute and Unknown Bone

    Hey Everyone, Yep me again. First is what might be a turtle scute. I am getting better at identifying things but these two I need help with. Second I am not sure about. I think it might be a phalanx from a mosasaur but it is not con caved on one end. Both are protruding. Thanks in advance for any help.
  8. 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.
  9. NSR Unknown 7-19-2020

    Hi Everyone, As I am going through my bat with poison ivy I am taking the time to go through some findings. I have to pieces I have no idea about. Both found NSR. Any help is appreciated.
  10. Hey Everyone, Has anyone found a Eutrephoceras dekayi from NSR? If so, was it only 2mm or smaller in size? I really want one but man my eyes will have a hard time finding it. Planko
  11. Jaw Piece Identification

    Hello all. Going through my pickings from a couple weeks ago. Might be tough but wondering if anyone knows what species this might of come from. Roughly 1.5 in by 2 inch.
  12. My wife and I went on a 7500+ mile ramble to break out of our COVID doldrums. Due to the virus we had to change up many of our original plans... which conversely added a number of additional fossil hunting locals as they allowed us to mostly avoid our fellow humans and maintain social distancing by many many miles. As part of our trip preparations my wife sewed us a number of masks, including a whole series of fossil hunting masks for me. Originally we were supposed to stay in Chicago, but we elected to avoid staying in the city, so we only got to do a drive by We started the trip with a bonus dig, meeting up with fellow forum member @minnbuckeye for a guided Ordovician hunt in Fennimore, Wisconsin (THANKS MIKE!) Unfortunately I neglected to take pics of the site so I will only be able to share a farm pic we passed on the way. Mike was a gracious host who kicked off the visit with a gift of several fossil samples from his home turf As with all of the fossils from this trip, all finds are as they arrived back home, no prep. Some of our finds from Fennimore:
  13. Hi all My kids and I found this tooth in one of the feeder creeks of the NSR in May. Someone said that it could be a worn Protosphyraena tooth. The leading edge is sharp; whereas, the trailing edge is round. It's also mostly compressed and broad-based. Any information or thoughts is much appreciated! Thanks!
  14. Plesiosaurus Vert...Maybe

    Hi All. I found this recently at NSR. I do believe it is a Plesiosaurus vertebrae. Looking around to make sure before I label and I have confused myself. Looked at too many websites. So, is it a Plesiosaurus Vert? Thanks in advance for your help?

  23. Gastropod / Unknown Bone

    Below is gastropod and was wondering a couple of things. Found NSR up from the Ladonia Park. What species to label it. Second though is it is heavy for its size. I know weight doesn't matter a lot but it is unusual. It is a different matrix from the normal NSR black or red gastropod steinkerns normally found there. Ok, the really unusual part it smells like metal. Like when you hold coins in your hand and they have the metallic smell. This has that smell and your hand smells just like it after holding. Maybe thinking to much into this but just is different. Bone fragment same location. Might be to worn to label.
  24. Me Again..NSR Finds 6-26-2020

    Ok, I stink at teeth identification. Here are a couple that I think are mosasaur. I found two of the below...any idea?
