  1. ID help tooth horse?

    Could you please help me identify this tooth? It was found today on the beach in South Texas. It’s not in great shape like others I have found in the same area. Also are the markings just normal wear? Measures 2.75 inches long and 1 inch wide. Thank you so much for your help!
  2. 4 month round up

    I was gonna call this a monthly round up but I just realized it's been four months, adjusting to new job has had me messed up. I've only gone to 2 locales in 4 months and I'm having withdrawals. Anyway, I stopped at a outcrop of buda formation for about 30 minutes while the family went shopping, the buda had given me 2 graptocarcinus carapaces previously so I was looking specifically for that, I found what I thought was a carapace but it turned out to be a chela with just a nub of a dactyl, unfortunately the finger got broken off somewhere in between getting it out of the ground and getting it home. I assume this is graptocarcinus but I have not found any pictures of the chela.
  3. Just a rock?

    Is this just a rock or a fossil of some sort? I know nothing about fossils, but am getting good at spotting them on the beach. I am an avid sheller and beachcomber and stumble upon Pleistocene aged fossils in South Texas. This piece looked different to me. Thank you so much. It measures approximately 1 inch by 2 inches
  4. Fossil identification

    This was also found on the beach in south Texas. Thank you!
  5. Identification help please

    Found on the beach in south Texas.
  6. Shark centrum modern or fossil?

    Just got home from a day trip to the corpus Christi area, very tired so might be a bit loopy. Found this on a shoreline sort of near the lighthouse park in Port Aransas, given the environment I don't know if it is actually a fossil that was maybe dredged out of the channel or modern. I think it is a shark centrum but I've never found one before so I could be wrong. Scale was a last minute thing, it's 28 mm long. Around an inch and an eighth.
  7. Identification and age of Tooth #2

    This tooth was found on a beach off the channel at South Padre Island. I am a shell and artifact hunter and have been finding fossils of late. I don't really know about fossils and have joined this group to help me learn and identify what I find. I have three fossils that I would love help with identification and I will post separately. Thanks so much!

  9. Canine tooth: bear, dog, what

    This probably needs moved to another place since it isn't actually fossilized. I found this year's aho near cotulla Texas. It was in an area where numerous "arrow heads" are found. It may be more modern than that though. It looks a lot like bear, but it's pretty small.
  10. Finally got a few hours to hunt around my local creek, I had found one mosasaur vert once before there so I decided to dig farther into the wall to see if there was more, to my surprise there was, the first one came out okay but the second one was really really crumbly. First one first
  11. Texas micro shark teeth

    Micro fossils from the pecan gap right where it meets Austin chalk, shark teeth with the roots dissolved are common here, as are baculites, if you see something you know or want to know more about say.
  12. Creek was a little flooded today made it harder to navigate, started the day with 2 dead drill battery's that I had charged the night before so I decided to move father up to look at some different exposures, started by picking up some matrix for micro's from the bottom of the pecan gap, more on that later, and then some Del Rio clay for the same, (if someone has suggestions for how to wash this faster that would be great) spent the next 2 hours picking up heteromorph mariellas.
  13. Figured we'd brave the cold today for a chance at some echinoids, first the leptosalenia texana.
  14. Pecan gap chalk ammonites

    Had a pretty fun day here in San Antonio, started off by meeting Dan, talked for a little while before he moved on to go scout some other areas, moved down a ways and found a mosasaur vertebrae (my first), and then a pachydiscus (also a first for me) had to leave for a while but came back and found more pachydiscus chunks and then a giant pachydiscus that I had almost stepped on probably 10 times or more.
  15. Pecan gap vertebrae?

    Found in pecan gap chalk near San Antonio, I thought maybe it's a vertebrae.
  16. Pecan gap chalk nautiloid?

    Found this in pecan gap chalk, nautaloid?
  17. Unknown Texas fossils

    Found these in cibolo Creek after our last flood, first one I think might be a piece of ammonite or maybe just a oyster,
  18. South Texas belemnite?

    Hello, first post here, found what I think might be a belemnite? Unsure though. Found in dirt near drainage ditch just outside loop 1604 South side of I35, map says pecan Gap chalk but I'm no good at IDing formations, any help is appreciated. PS I have other fossils I'm unsure of from another area, new thread or here? Thanks, Raymond.
  19. Fossil or other

    Found in South Texas scrub brush, no idea but looks like scales or skin? Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.
  20. Is this an egg or a rock?

    My husband found this on the side of the road in South Texas. It really looks like some sort of egg to us or is it just a strange rock? It's about the size of my fist.
  21. South Texas Upper Cretaceous Coprolite

    These finds are from Eagle Pass, TX, Upper Cretaceous, marine, found lying on the ground on a layer of sandstone at a construction site. I see a lot of these doodads, but never picked one up until today when I sat down on a rock for a rest. I noticed it had a bunch of little cubic crystals. I thought maybe iron pyrite, but some of the dark brown crystals almost have an organic look to them, and aren't quite as regular in size and proportion as I'd expect crystals to be. The other thing is most of the objects are roughly the same size, proportions, and have similar rounding. I thought there was a chance they might be coprolites and the bits were chewed up chitin. If they are, then clearly the host wasn't getting enough fiber in its diet. I'll see whether Lori agrees or just poopoos my theory. Edit: You know, the more I look at the magnified images, I think they are just inorganic crystals. Stuff that had been chewed up wouldn't be that regularly shaped. Also, the crystals have that "fractal" self-similar look to them. Not sure why they got clumped together in similar fashion for each specimen though. I probably need to break them open and see what's inside.
  22. South Texas Upper Cretaceous Tree

    A beautiful split concretion embedded in a block of hard sandstone. Probably not a tree, but seems to have growth rings and outer bark.
  23. South Texas Upper Cretaceous Rings

    These are from Eagle Pass, TX. This layer is Upper Cretaceous. These look like weathered iron concretions, but for two things: (1) some of them have an ammonite curve to them and (2) some have a series of equidistant radial bumps. I thought it was likely they were concretions, so I just marked them in GPS and left them there. Do you think they are worth more investigation?
  24. I've posted some of these before, but these are more complete specimens, so maybe possible to get a better ID. I'm finding lots of these, so you can't accuse me of being a lopha. Found in Eagle Pass, TX. Upper Cretaceous. Found on top of the ground, which is a sandstone layer above layers of soft shale and mudstone. Sphenodiscus and oysters found in this area. Based on photos I've found similar to what I can see of these specimens, I estimate the total length of the animal at 15 to 20 cm from stem to stern. I am uncertain of the actual shape. Since the specimens I have are somewhat spherical, I assume they are a fragment of both halves of the animal, making the total thickness 4 to 5 cm, and the width 5 to 6 cm. The orientation is interesting. I've found a half dozen of these. All the ones with the "face" feature are oriented with the "face" positioned on the top and dead center. Assuming the samples were pushed to the surface and weathered top down, then all of the samples came to rest on the bottom oriented the same. This tells me the animal probably has a domed upper half and a flat lower half or the center of gravity caused it to orient itself the same way when it died. I've seen photos online of frons, travisana, and cristagalli that resemble these specimens one way or another. Not sure these were all present in Cretaceous. Travisana looks most like these two specimens. The cristagalli I saw has the peculiar "deaths head" face feature. I have provided a top view and 360 degree view of each new specimen 3 & 4 and a comparison with the older specimens 1 & 2. New Specimen 3 Detail New Specimen 4 Detail Compare Old 1 & 2 w/ New 3 & 4
  25. South Texas Upper Cretaceous Coral

    I see these all over the place and wonder what they are. They all have the same surface crazing and pitting. Color varies brown, orange, pink. Attaching a photo of the surface and the inside after a good hammerin'.
