  1. Post Oak Creek - 2 teeth and jaw section?

    I found this on a trip to POC last week. To me it looks like 2 teeth with a possible small jaw section. Can anyone verify? I’m assuming shark of some sort, but any help would be greatly appreciated!
  2. Here is an echinoid I collected several years ago while sifting in Post Oak Creek in Sherman Texas. I haven't ever seen another one come from there. Anyone have an idea on the identity of it. The grid paper is in mm so this echinoid is approximately 10x10 millimeters in size.
  3. Help with two micro teeth

    So I was searching through the remaining material I had from a trip to POC. I’ve had this material for a few weeks and I randomly go back look through it trying to find more micro teeth. When looking today I found two items that were a bit different than the other items I found. Anyone that can help me identify what species the small tooth is would be great. Not saying it’s rare but it just looked different than the probably 50 I found. Also the other chunk looks to be a piece of jaw with two small teeth connected. At first glance I thought it was a broken piece of tooth it the more I looked, it looks like one of the teeth is whole and not fractured or cracked. Any opinions would be great!
  4. NE Texas fossil hunting

    Ok this may be a stupid question but I’ve only been hunting and researching for about 2 weeks. So I live in the NE Texas area and I’m trying to find what sort of fossils are going to be readily available. I’m assuming that since this area was mostly underwater for millions of years, the majority of the fossils in this area are aquatic Cretaceous. Is that a fair evaluation? I know every area has it’s common fossil and species, I’m just trying to figure out what mine is. Please forgive me if this is a common question but I feel the only dumb question is the one never asked. I’ve done sports memorabilia for 20 years and I know how it is when a newbie starts asking all sorts of common questions. I then remember I was there once.
  5. Fossilized Tooth

    I found this tooth on the gravel bed of the creek last week. It seems fossilized, the best I can tell anyway. Do you guys know what it might have belonged to? Thanks in advance.
  6. Shark or Mosasaur Vertebrae?

    I found this in the gravel bed of a creek today in Grayson County, TX. Is it a shark vertebrae, or possibly mosasaur? Thanks for any help.
  7. Ptychodus Teeth

    We just started hunting for shark teeth in August and have found many, but finding the ptychodus teeth is my favorite. I just wanted to show you guys our collection of them so far. Are these all whipplei?
  8. Post Oak Creek Mix

  9. I explored a new creek spot on the North Sulphur River and had a good day with a nice variety. The Native American pottery and artifacts were a nice surprise at NSR. I rode over to Post Oak Creek only to find my favorite spot posted so I explored a new spot for one hour and found a few nice teeth.
  10. Post Oak Creek ID

    I found this nice tooth at post oak creek the other day on a quick solo trip. I believe it is fossilized, but i have never seen a tooth like this. Does anyone know what I got here? Thanks
  11. curious about this one, perhaps a tooth?

    Recently went fossil hunting for the first time in Sherman, TX at post oak creek. I found loads of shark teeth, but this one though small caught my eye. Doesn't have a root, perhaps it is just a tip; but the general shape is different from all the shark teeth I found. So maybe it is something else (hopefully not just a rock) It is pretty small. Attaching a couple of pictures on from top view, side.
  12. Post Oak Creek Bone ID Help Please

    I made a trip to Post Oak Creek over the weekend and found 2 pieces sitting on the rock bank. They look like Mosasaur, but I am very new to identifying fossils. Any help with identification would be greatly appreciated. The ruler is in inches. On a side note, I also had a gar watching me the whole time I was there which was a first for me. I will post pictures of him in the Fossil Hunting Trips section.
  13. Post Oak Creek Modest Finds

    I am new to this forum, and have so enjoyed reading all your posts! I have learned so much! I made a solitary journey to Post Oak Creek this morning, after a meeting at work, and had a great time! The findings were modest, but it was a beautiful morning!!! I decided I would add to the chatter here, also see if I can post a picture, for a change, rather than only viewing. Have a wonderful week, all! Kay
  14. Autumn shark tooth

    From the album Personal Finds

    Post Oak Creek, Sherman Texas
  15. Sherman, Tx Poc Hunt

    I spent the afternoon in Post Oak Creek with my 8yr old and found some fun stuff. Pics #1-2 are what I thought to be a shrimp or small lobster carapace? Everything found on gravel bars in a creek the maps show to be upper Cretaceous. #3-6 are pics of a bone and vertebrae I can't ID. Any ideas? And some of the standard shark teeth in POC, along with a couple of really nice ptychodus.
  16. Big Poc Tooth

    Since the weather was close to perfect here in N. TX today, I spent the early part of the morning lobbying my 8-yr old to make the 60 minute trip with me up to a favorite section of Post Oak Creek (Sherman, TX - Mesozoic, Upper Cretaceous) to spend the afternoon hunting for shark's teeth for a small jar we're trying to fill. We've made this trip 3 other times, so my hopes were high. Once he stepped out into the backyard and felt the combination of a warming sun tempered by a cooling wind, he was all systems go. Over the course of about 3 hours we found a bunch of broken sharks's teeth that were perfect for filling the jar, a few smaller really complete teeth, a possible shrimp or lobster carapace, a couple of super nice ptychodus teeth, a couple of bones/vertebrae (I'll post all this next), and one...really...large...tooth. At the end of the afternoon, on our way back to the car, we were eyeballing the driest route back across last "stream" area we had to cross, and my son said "Wait, Dad! I see a big tooth!". He ran around behind me and reached about a foot into the stream and pulled out something that looked all-too-disappointingly familiar: a big solid, rock-like object shaped in a vaguely and meanderingly conical toothlike manner. It was covered in moss, and I've had so few things of this shape actually turn out to be something organic that I almost dropped it back into the small stream whence it came. But, I had just exhorted him to put anything and everything he thinks might be fossiliforous into the bag because we could always clean it up and throw it out later if it was nothing. So, into the bag it went. Once we got it home, cleaned it up, let it dry and took a good look, there was no question it was a tooth. What a nice surprise! Just curious what the experts thought it might be (first thought was enchodus based on the shape, but it's completely round with no angular faces to it), and whether you can tell how big the actual animal might be that it came from based on the size of the tooth (right at 3")? Thanks in advance for any info you can pass along.
