  1. 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:
  2. My daughter and I went fossil hunting on Post Oak Creek in Sherman, Tx. We found a few shark teeth, a few Mosasaur teeth, and a few different shells and a couple of just interesting looking things. pics:
  3. Fossil

    Anyone know what this might be? I found it in a creek known for aquatic fossils in northern Texas/ Texoma area but I can’t identify at all. Claw, tooth, tusk,...? The black part is hollow
  4. What kind of imprint is this?

    Found this earlier while shark tooth hunting. Just trying to find out what it is.
  5. Ok so today I went shark tooth hunting and I came across what to me looks like a tusk or horn of some sort. I honestly have no clue. Anyone else know what this might be? They’re about the size of a penny.
  6. 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!
  7. Hi all I found these two fossils in Post Oak Creek (Sherman, TX) today and would appreciate any input as to what they are. My guess on the first one is that it is part of a turtle shell, and the second one is part of a crustacean. Thanks!
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. Post Oak Creek - First trip - Need Help

    So my 8 year old son and I did our first ever trip to go find fossils. Attached is what we found in our very untrained 2 hour trip! Haha I literally have no experience outside of reading on this forum from time to time. We may have just picked up some rocks but they looked like fossils to us. I know most most of the teeth are probably goblin and I believe we found 2 Ptychodus. The main things I’m wondering about are the long piece slim piece next to the Ptychodus (possible whale tooth?), two vertebrae looking pieces, the egg shaped piece, and the white pieces. Not sure if they are bones of if they are just random trash we picked up thinking they were treasures. Haha All our tooth fragments Item on right? Egg shaped item Vertebrae? Vertebrae? Cant tell if this tooth is broken or just worn Cool little shell in a rock formation No clue? Looks like bones in rock but could be just river muck This looks like a little flipper but not sure
  11. Post Oak Creek - Oyster with Anomoly

    So I went to north Texas a few weeks back. Stopped by NSR and Post Oak Creek in Sherman. Both were pretty flooded still, which hampered my efforts. Had a very meagre haul, which was disappointing. Back in Houston, about a week later, I was going over my disappointing finds, after a good washing. That's when I noticed an oyster I picked up in Sherman had a rather unusual anomaly. It was odd that I even picked it up - I already have several nice oysters of this variety from the same location. I try not to take home too many duplicates, usually leave them for the next guy. Well, this was a surprise. And I would say made the whole trip worth it. Oyster and Sherman experts, tell me your thoughts. The anomaly appears spherical in shape, entirely back material, high gloss. I do not want to prep the object or to try to remove, as I feel it adds incredible charm to a rather ordinary fossil. Sherman, Texas. Eagle Ford Formation, Cretaceous.
  12. Post Oak Creek Sherman Tx

    We are back asking for more help. Hope we do not wear out our welcome. LOL. We are very excited about our new hobby close to home and you all have been great help. We went to post oak creek in Sherman TX today. Please let us know if better pics are needed. We think A. Is just a modern piece of bone from a deer, pig, cow, etc... We posted it in the pic just to help is learn. If better pics of other pieces are needed please reply and we will take them. M & T
  13. This is one of those strange little fossils that keeps you guessing. The center “texture” almost looks like a skin imprint. A lot of different things going on here. Coprolite perhaps? Any ideas? Thank you in advance!
  14. Post Oak Creek Mix

  15. Cow or Bison Tooth?

    Can anyone help me in deciding if this tooth belonged to a cow or bison? Found in Post Oak Creek, Grayson County, Texas. Thank you.
  16. Tiny shark tooth

    So a little over a week ago I found the tiniest trilobite. So dang small I can’t begin to photograph it. Last night I found the tiniest shark tooth (at least I think it is shark) I’ve ever seen. It was in gravel I brought home from Post Oak Creek in Sherman, Texas. I may have said this before, but I never thought I’d call a shark tooth adorable, but it’s pretty adorable if it is a shark tooth. I have no idea what kind it is is. I’m not sure I can get a high enough quality pic to get someone to help me ID it. But here it is just to share the cuteness. It might be 5 mm long. A bit closer up. The ridiculous thing is and it’s quite laughable, it’s the only shark tooth I have ever found in the POC after 5 trips! I even sift and sieve.
  17. T-Rex Tooth?!?

    Okay guys! I've been talking my little boys fossil hunting at Post Oak Creek in Sherman since they let out of school for summer. Trying to get them interested in it and FINALLY!!! My 8 year old(least interested) found this. Please tell me this is a t-Rex tooth!! We are all pretty stoked regardless but would love some insight. Thanks!
  18. Hi everyone! It’s been a while, but I finally made it back out fossil hunting! Missed being here! Here are a few of my pickings from Memorial Day on Post Oak Creek in Sherman, Texas. As you can see there are lot of small shark teeth. Most are broken unfortunately. The large piece is a mystery. At first glance it looks similar to the mammoth enamel I have found in the past, but what do you all think??? It has a smooth surface on one side, and a slightly pitted surface on the other. Worn by the elements and/or stained? I can’t tell what this is. There are a few smaller unidentifiable pieces, too. One has what appears to be two triangular shapes on top of each other. No clue! The other small piece has the appearance of (bone?), but the feel of rock. The large black piece? Flint maybe? Any help would be appreciated!
  19. I went to Post Oak Creek in Sherman, Texas today, and I found quite a good mix. A few of the teeth were a bit unusual. In the 4th photo I have a few questions. On the top row, second tooth from the right, is that a rodent tooth? Then (4th picture) second tooth from the right, that one has a strange “hook to it”. Also, second row, third from the right. Anyone know what those are? Thanks in advance!
  20. Post Oak Creek tiny fossil ID????

    I found this in the water at Post Oak Creek in Sherman Texas. It’s very small, but it seems to have a couple of different things attached to each other. One looks like a rudist??? I don’t know what is attached to the side with the line of circles though. I just thought it was an unusual looking little fossil. Any ideas of what this might be?
  21. I took a trip up to Sherman, Texas today to sift around the Post Oak Creek. Here are my finds. A few good teeth and fish vertebrae, but mostly bits and pieces and tiny teeth. Do any of you know what the white tooth at the top of the group picture might be? I included a close up. Also the black tooth (?) to the right of the white one. Closeups as well. Thanks in advance!!!
  22. Brand new to the forum, but learned about Post Oak Creek from you guys, so figured I'd share some of my finds from the two trips I've made out there so far. Not pictured are ptychodus teeth and various bone and/or shell fragments. If you wouldn't mind, I would like some help identifying some of the non-shark teeth as well as one shark tooth in particular. Those will be directly below this in the thread due to size limits. Thanks in advance! Ps. for those who aren't local, Post Oak Creek is in Sherman, TX and cuts through a Cretaceous (?) formation. First, here's a shark tooth that was particular thick and blunt. Not sure how to ID it...
  23. I found these (what I believe to be) teeth from the bed of Post Oak Creek in Sherman, Texas. Can anyone ID these? Thanks!!
  24. Post Oak Creek-Sherman, Texas

    I uncovered this strange formation down in the water of Post Oak Creek in Sherman, Texas. Any ideas of what it may be?
