  1. Brachiopod or Ptychodus

    Anyone please tell me what the heck this is at first I thought it was a brachiopod then I was like it might be a Ptychodus tooth what do you think I don’t not know where it came from. About 2 cm in length
  2. Good evening to all participants! I have accumulated a lot of local (from Ukraine) material - I decided to sort it out, and recurring fossils, or not of interest to me, offers you an exchange. Everything in the photos is one lot. Consists of: 1. Tile from Carboniferous period with fern print; 2. A fragment of the armor of a armored fish Podolaspis Lerichei of the Devonian period; 3. Tile with Silrian brachiopods and tentaculites; 4. Mollusk of Neogene; 5. A small fragment of a fossilized araucaria of the Carboniferous period with quartzite crystals; 6. 2 fragments of orthoceras (found together with a tile with tentaculites); 7. A selection of teeth and vertebrae (most of the Cenomanian fish): 7.1. 3 Enchodus teeth (2 large ones are glued from fragments, and the largest (light) one is also smeared with a children's felt-tip pen), Cenomanian. 7.2. Ptychodus teeth (light - Cenomanian; found personally, and dark ones got by exchange); 7.3. 2 undefined teeth of the Cenomanian fish and good teeth of a shark from Malin, Zhytomyr region (by the way, dark teeth of Ptychodus are from the same place); 7.4. 2 Pycnodus teeth - Cenomanian. 7.5. - A bag of Cenomanian fish vertebrae - about 50-60 pieces. Perhaps some of this will interest you. What is interesting to me: first of all, on marine reptiles and dinosaurs, and also offhand, I am interested in the teeth of megalodon, Crinoids and ammonites. Surely I missed something - I ask you, do not hesitate to write to me in private messages - i will glad to talk. Best regards, Svetlana
  3. Post Oak Creek 12-10-20

    I went back to a new spot on POC and found the typical array of broken shark teeth, a few Ptychodus teeth, and some interesting items I'm not really sure about. Anyone have an idea of what the item in pictures 6-8 are? What about 9-11 maybe coprolite or a fossilized crustacean? The item in pictures 12-14 appears to be a tooth but with no enamel I didn't think it was a shark tip. It could also just be a piece of bone or something. Sorry for the poor picture quality of that one but I will take better ones of it later. Im pretty sure picture 15 is a rudist and lastly the item in pictures 16-18 I think is just a coincidentally formed rock. The rest of the pictures are of some cool items like the shark or fish verts, the small fossilized crab claw, a broken piece of sawfish rostrum, and a few cool pieces of matrix with inclusions. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18.
  4. I'm a newbie who lives in the Austin area with a lot of passion for ancient life, but I'm having trouble making a decisive start with with my searches. I have a particular interest in large western interior seaway predators, most notably xiphactinus, but also the mosasaurs and sharks that lived in the area as well. Finding a vertebrae, of perhaps even teeth from these groups would be absolutely wonderful, but of the few creeks in the Austin area I've scouted, I've been able to turn up nothing besides gastropods. This is still despite heavily studying the sometimes confusing Texas geological maps So with this in mind, how and where do I start? Are there any places in the Austin area where I may have some luck in discovering possible vertebrae or teeth? I'd love any advice, I'm eager to make a start but I'm quite alone and need a little bit of guidance. Thanks!
  5. Cold day in the desert but a ton of fun with some great finds! Thank you @PFOOLEY for the wisdom. These all were found in the Carlile formation in Sandoval County, New Mexico.
  6. Post Oak Creek 12-1-20

    Here are my finds from my latest visit to Post Oak Creek. The first few pictures are of the shark teeth. Items 4-7 im assuming are part of a Mosasaur vertebrate? Items 8 and 9 are some type of mammal tooth. Not sure if it is modern or not. Finally item 10 is picture of what im assuming are modern mammal teeth. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
  7. Post Oak Creek 11-18-20

    Here are my finds from my latest POC visit. Made a decent haul with my best Ptychodus yet and my largest tooth so far here. The tooth was about 1.5 inches. I also found a small ptychodus with no root but it did have very defined grooves. Pictures 2 and 3 are the large Ptychodus and picture 4 is the 1.5 inch tooth. 5 and 6 are the small Ptychodus. Picture 7 is the creek wall matrix I was looking in for teeth and 8 and 9 are the actual teeth I found in the matrix. Does anyone know if this is original matrix? I was able to find several teeth sticking out but several of them were also just pieces of teeth, like you find on the gravel bars, and not complete intact teeth. I was hoping if they were from the original matrix the teeth would be complete. And Finally I have a game for you. See if you can find the tooth in picture 10. For some reason many of the teeth I found this trip were highly camouflaged haha. The rest of the pictures are just closeups. I initially thought I found some mosasaur material but the bone feels modern to me now that it is dry. I also found my first vertebrae this trip. Looking at the other posts it seems like verts and artifacts are pretty easy to find but I guess I just don't have the eye for them as I have only found this one vert and have never found an artifact. Enjoy. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14.
  8. Post Oak Creek November 2020

    Here are some finds from two trips in early November. Several ptychodus with one nice large one, a ton of shark teeth shards, a couple pieces of mammal enamel, and some unknowns. Im posting the shark teeth first and then will post the pictures of some of the others. Let me know what you think. Anyone know the species of the teeth in picture 1? I was specifically wondering about number 3 from the first picture. Pictures 6-10 are closeups. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
  9. Could this be a new species of Ptychodus? I have never seen/found one this large before. If not, could anyone who is an expert in Ptychodus teeth give an ID? Thank you! It was found in West Alabama.
  10. I have been wanting to make it back to the Ellis County creek where I found so many teeth, but by the time I could do it, it had rained enough to raise the creek quite a bit. The water level has just now dropped again. I was working near Ellis County this morning, and when I finished very early, it seemed the perfect time to go back. Rain is forecast for this evening and the next couple of days that will likely bring the creek up again. Below is what I found that was either loose, or easily removed from matrix.
  11. Work has been interfering with both my cycling and fossil hunting time lately. I managed a day off today and started the day with a 30 mile bike ride. But there's a creek in Ellis County I've been wanting to hunt, and I really wanted to get my first look at it while the water is low. With Hurricane Laura bearing down on the coast, I decided to make that hunting trip today, not being at all sure how much longer the water will be this low. It's an Eagle Ford outcrop I went to in this creek. With my late start, it was 11:00 before my hike down the creek got me to the outcrop. I left at 2:00, so only had three hours for my first time exploring it. The temperature was in the 90's and the humidity was high, so it was definitely stifling hot. It did cloud up at times, and actually rained for a few minutes. But it was mostly just sunny and hot. The outcrop is the typical blue-gray clay you find with Eagle Ford.
  12. 8/16/20 Trip

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    Didn't find much this time. I don't think it's rained in a while - the water looked stagnant. Also was picked over well. Favorite find is the mostly complete Cretodus (found it under a fallen tree).
  13. Hi all- Today I led a group of Tate Museum members to a shark tooth site for a few hours of collecting. We had a good time and I think all 45 people found at least a few teeth, with many finding many more. Cretaceous shark teeth form Wyoming are not big. This site is one of the few I have found that I can bring a group to and there will still be teeth left after we leave. We had permission from the landowner to do this for a few hours today. At this site, it is somewhat easy to find teeth. It is much harder to find complete ones. I left all mine at work. These are the highlights of my wife's catch. Ptychodus is the most common species to find whole. There's one at the top right position. Here is the site. The highlight for most people was when a herd of elk trotted past us about 1/4 mile away. Oh, did I mention that a few ammonites were found... I did have an unpleasant encounter with a trespassing Harley biker returning from the Sturgis Rally. I am not a fan of bikers and this guy only helped strengthen my bad opinion of them. His travel buddy was much nicer and recognized me from TV, and managed to bring his friend back to the legal side of the fence. I work hard to build good relations with landowners and I do not want it screwed up by an arrogant "I can do whatever I want" {insert cuss word here}. Please get permission from landowners, everyone. The repercussions of not doing so get all of us kicked off of fossil sites. And if you ride a Harley... please be respectful. Hope you like the fossils.
  14. Ptychodus and others

    Found on 06/06/2020 Post Oak Creek, surface hunting.
  15. These were found in Grayson County, Sherman Texas on 06-06-2020. Found surface hunting. The two Ptychodus resting together were found about a foot apart. Perfect mates. i am relatively new at tooth identification. Please help to identify the other three large teeth.
