  1. Goblin or something else

    Found this little tooth this weekend. I’m sure it must be a S. raphiodon but the cusplets come directly out of a broader based blade. Not like the others I usually find. May just be because it is a juvenile?
  2. Let me know when you get tired of me posting but I am so excited about how enthusiastic my son is about our hunts. He has only recently started to enjoy crawling creeks with me and can spend the whole day of time allowed. We have been out the last two weeks and have found quite a few teeth. Have found probably a quart of brokes and a few nice ones. He loves to get an official count after every hunt. Yesterday yielded officially 492 in three and a half hours. Found a couple of quality teeth as well as a P. latissimus that is broken and a heartbreaker. Still on the hunt for a complete one for the collection. Weather has been perfect. We need to enjoy it before the temps rise above unbearable.
  3. Cretaceous Shell

    Found this shell while in the creek this weekend. I have never found a shell like this in all my time in North Texas creeks so this seems out of place. Has matrix stuck to it and inside that matches what is present where I hunt. It is fossil and has some spots that look like calsite or some other crystal. Any ideas?
  4. Finally Interested

    Had a great day with my son yesterday. Started the morning at Lake Ray Roberts for a nature hike with a group looking for animal signs with the local ranger. It was a beautiful morning and finally 70 degrees. Saw tons of great animal signs and of course the kids loved looking for skat. Saw a group of deer which is rare. After the walk I told my son we were going to swing by Post Oak Creek to resupply my matrix bucket. To my surprise, he wanted to stay and look for teeth, and man is he good at spotting them. In between his playing with the other kids he found 31 teeth.(I know because he kept count of every tooth) we helped a few other people find teeth. We met a couple from Tulsa and helped them and donated a few good finds to their collection including a flawless Cretolamna and a Squalicorax in coprolite that was amazing. Wish I had snapped a picture. We found a few good teeth and headed out. My son actually said he was looking forward to going again. Best part of my day. I am attaching some pictures from the trip including my best of the day, a nice P. mortoni and the spoiler, a 1 1/2 inch broken Cretodus that would have easily broken the 2+ inch mark. When I saw he root sticking up I thought it was going to be the trip maker. Thanks for looking.
  5. A Ptychodus first for me

    Found this partial tooth today. Thinking it is Ptychodus decurrens. A first for me.
  6. I found these and Post Oak Creek in Sherman I think their teeth of some sort - or maybe pieces of teeth - there are like little nubs. Thank you.
  7. And the cigar goes to?

    Cigar tube was just the right size for the mornings finds. Contains 112 teeth and pieces. Post Oak creek, three hours of finding and explaining to "others" how to find. Nice place to do the booty scoot, you sure find some tiny stuff. Screening gets the bigger stuff but allows the tiny stuff to filter through. Contains: Ptychodus whipplei, Cretolamna Appendiculata, Scapanorhynchus Texanus, Squalicorax Kaupi. It will wind up going as a gift. I'll get back with some other recent finds from around my part of local Texas. Jess B.
  8. Post Oak Creek

    Had a nice haul at POC today. Need help with the bone ID. I'm guessing mammal. Thanks
  9. Group dig at Post Oak creek?

    If anyone is game Sunday morn Oct 2 Post Oak Creek. (Sherman Tex.) Got new screen dying to try them out. Hope to see some of us there. Jess B.
  10. NSR-Post Oak-Mineral Wells

    It has been a while since I posted last. School has been hectic, and I have been out of the country as well. I was blessed with the opportunity a few months ago to go to some of the best hunting areas in Texas, all of them places I had wished to visit for years. My mother was a real sport crawling down to the rivers, avoiding the snakes and leeches... We arrived in Ladonia, and drove by the river to get an idea of what the hunting would be like. We skipped on going to the park, knowing it would be well picked over, particularly since the last month it had been flooded, shifting everything. So I got a map and found a different overpass, and we got out to look. (Just so you know, if you ever plan to go here take LOTS of bug spray, sun screen and water. There are chiggers and mosquitoes and lots of spiders. And it is hot. Very, very hot.) It was a very steep climb down to the river bed it's self, so I would advise taking good boots and a walking stick. It started pretty slow, but we managed to find several giant oysters (Name seems to escape me at the moment!) Stumbled over a small creek that flowed into the main river, and headed down it. The goal was to find some mosasaur related material, but we were not having any luck. And just after we headed back to the car, I looked down to see a huge vertebrae! Not going to lie. I was ecstatic! (And yes, it was a lucky coincidence that I happened to be wearing a Jurassic Park T-shirt, haha) I cleaned it up a bit, and this photo was taken back at our bed and breakfast that we were staying at. Good explanation for the terrible lighting. It was a good start to the trip! The next morning we were up and at it again, early. Got out on the river probably by 8. Found some bits and pieces of a Xiphactinus bone, but no more mosasaur for the rest of the trip. There were some nice ammonites and baculites, and then took the afternoon one of the days to head up to Sherman and get teeth. The teeth are of course abundant, and it was so much fun finding them! We ended up with 70+ teeth before heading back to the car. If you have not been there, it has a steep incline if you choose to go to the small bridge rather than the highway. I filled up a five gallon bucket to take home and sort through. About 60 lbs! It was interesting getting it up the incline. We got back to Ladonia, and searched for fossils again, (My goal was to get a Mosasaur tooth) but were unsuccessful, so turned in for the night. We then headed out the next morning again, and saw several water snakes, They are completely harmless though, but a good reminder of the Cottonmouths that inhabit the same waters. And, the leech was an added but unnecessary bonus haha! And no, I didn't kill it. It wasn't doing anything so i just...took it really far off and put it back in the water. The mosy vert was nice, but I decided to split some of the shale because there are ammonites in it. They are just very fragile. Took a while, but I was picking up a large slab, and it split perfectly, all by itself when I lifted it out of the water. I need to prep it, but since this is a very delicate job I am considering hiring someone who has more experience. The special thing about this fossil is the fact the ammonites beak is preserved. I fell in love with it immediately. (Unfortunately I had my camera in a checked bag going to Africa, and it...doesn't work now. So I had to take these with a phone.) I am going to try to see about getting some better ones, because in these photos it is hard to tell what you are looking at. Continued in next post....
  11. No Idea?

    Found this today in my bucket. It is a tooth but I have no idea what kind it is. Very interesting patern on the enamel. Would love feedback. I am having difficulty getting a good picture.
  12. Post Oak

    Well kiddies I am going to try Post oak creek for the very 1st time tomorrow. My folks moved to Denison recently so when I go see them there are certainly a few spots I can range around to from that launching pad. Anyone else headed there tomorrow? I'll be going there solo. Randy Rogers
  13. Fish Mouthplate?

    Any idea what this is from. Found it today at Post Oak Creek. Looks to be a part of a mouth plate of some sort. Thanks in advance for any help.
