  1. I seem to be having a slow week at work, and didn't have much at home demanding attention, so I decided to spend a day fossil hunting yesterday. I got up with intentions of checking out a new spot on the NSR, but when I looked at weather radar, there were showers in that area. The parts of NSR that I have seen are pretty tough to get into and out of when things are wet, so I changed my mind and made a drive to Post Oak Creek. One trip this spring was the only time I'd been there, and I didn't know what to expect in mid summer, but it is one of the most fossiliferous places I've ever seen, so I was sure a trip there would be fun. And just like my first trip there, I found teeth. I've found very few teeth of any kind in all the other places I've fossil hunted, so I really enjoyed my time crawling on knee pads, looking for teeth. I considered bringing my sifter, but decided I would just stick to searching the sand bars. It was a dark day for the most part, with light rain on and off, so not the best day for trying to spot tiny teeth on the sand bars, but I did find enough to really enjoy myself, and the clouds did help keep the heat from getting too bad. The really small tooth in the upper left corner was the only Ptychodus tooth I found yesterday. Lots of the teeth are broken, damage from tumbling on the rocks, I guess. I always marvel at how sharp many of them are.
  2. Ptychodus and others

    Found on 06/06/2020 Post Oak Creek, surface hunting.
  3. P. mortoni detail

    From the album Post Oak Creek

  4. Micro mortoni

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    I first identified this as P. mortoni, then Polyacrodus sp. And now that I have a full tooth of P. mortoni, I'm confident that this is P. mortoni.
  5. Sawfish vertebra

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    I erroneously identified this as a shark centrum, however it doesn't have any foramina on the lateral surface, so it must be a sawfish.
  6. Can you find the shark tooth? (11)

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    There are two visible shark teeth (that I could see).
  7. Ptychodus mortoni

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    Collected 5/31/2020.
  8. Bone Fragment From Post Oak Creek, TX

    Can anyone help me identify this bone fragment ? It’s from Sherman, TX at Post Oak Creek. It’s drying right now from being in the stream. Is it fossilized ? Modern ? Bison ? Cow?
  9. We recently acquired some micro matrix from the Cretaceous of Texas courtesy of our friend @Captcrunch227. I had a fun time searching the Post Oak Creek stuff and we crossed some stuff our want list. There are still several teeth that need id’s but I’ll have to wait a week or two before I can get pics to help that process. In the meantime, I do know some of what I found. We found several Nurse Shark teeth. I am relatively sure 2 are Cantioscyllium. I think 2 are Plicatoscyllium. Super excited to find a few Nurse Sharks. We found a couple of Rhinobatos teeth, a really nice Scapanorhynchus symphyseal, a lot of Sawfish material, a couple of Rhombodus, I am pretty sure we found a Cretodus and two that I think might be Paranomotodon. We found a couple that look to be Cretalamna. This is was a bunch of fun and I’m thinking I need to find more micros lol What a fantastic way to occupy ones time and stimulate the brain.
  10. POC, April 20th

    I made my first trip to Post Oak Creek today. There had been rain in the forecast for yesterday, so I hoped for some newly washed out fossils, but Sherman got no rain. So, I knew things would be pretty picked over, but I decided to go anyway, and just hike a bit further down the creek than I normally might, to see if I could find a few teeth anyway. I stayed about three hours. The knee pads I bought yesterday were definitely a good investment. These old fart eyes need to be close to the sand bars to get within reading glass distance of those small teeth. I had also made a sifter, and carried out half a bucket of sand to go through at home. I had fun. That creek is an amazing fossil place.
  11. cretaceous crustaceans

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    Some creek-crushed cretaceous crustacean crumbs.

    A collection of denticles from sawfishes and possibly sharks.

  16. 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.
  17. Sawfish Oral Teeth

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    Tiny sawfish oral teeth can be found in POC by simply taking some gravel home to look through under a magnifying glass, or a microscope if you've got one.

  20. Can you find the shark tooth? (10)

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    I realize that a lot of my in situ shots are of ptychodus, but they seem to be more visible and photogenic. Taken 12/31/19.
  21. Hybodont Shark Spine

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    A first for me, I found the end of a hybodont shark spine.

  23. Cretoxyrhina sp. Shark Teeth

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    Another one of my favorites, the "ginsu" shark, so named for its sharp blade-like teeth. The largest one in the center is indeed from POC, but I bought it online.
