  5. Shark Teeth What Type? Sulphur River.

    Hey everybody I got lucky yesterday searching the Sulphur River in Ladonia, these two teeth are shaped different than the first one I found - wondering if they are the same type of shark.
  6. These were found at the Sulphur River at Ladonia Fossil Park yesterday - which fossils are from the crustaceous period from what I've read. The river is in the process of flooding so I searched far on the banks where I usually wouldn't probably look, since getting in the river wasn't an option yesterday. The white thing is the one I'm mainly curious about. But, at the rate I have been going, I may as well ask about the other one too, since I have yet to find a winner. Thanks again for your time, I truly appreciate it. Laura
  7. Hello, I am new to this site so I apologize in advance if I post incorrectly. I went to Ladonia, Texas, to the fossil park and found a lot of "red" type rocks or fossils. I need help identifying what they are and basically if they are even fossils. I have a lot of them, so to keep this simple, I will just post photos of all the same item, but in various angles. Thank you, Laura Location: Ladonia Fossil Park, Ladonia, Texas Period: From what I have read, fossils here are from the Cretaceous Period/Mesozoic Era. Weight: 5.34 Ounces

  9. Mosasaur vertebra

    From the album North Sulphur River

  10. I found this at the Ladonia fossil Park, Texas, in the Sulphur River, it looks like it might be a fish in this rock towards the top but I'm not sure. I believe all findings in this water or from the Cretaceous Period. Thank you for looking and any help identifying. Laura
  11. Snail and something else. Sulphur River

    OK so far everything I've posted has not been a fossil. I'm sure that this first one with the little snail dude is, but how about the second one? I feel like I can see something on that rock and I'm not sure what it is. Also, is the snail a fossil or is he considered something else. These were all found in Ladonia Fossil Park in North Texas, Sulphur River, Cretaceous period.
  12. Need help identifying. Thank you in advance for your help. Laura Location: Ladonia Fossil Park, Ladonia, Texas, North Sulphur River Weight: 13.83 Ounces
  13. Made another trip to the Sulphur and had a couple questions regarding two of my finds: First, is this coprolite? Not sure how to identify it, other then it looks like it. Second, I assumed this was a shark centrum when I found it, but looking at other images online, they are seem to be quite a bit thicker. Mine is about 2" in diameter and 1/4" thick. Any thoughts? Thanks!
  14. 2-18-17 collection

    From the album North Sulphur River

  15. Finally made it out to the Sulphur. It's been 9 months so I was eager to get a big hunt in. Pulled an all dayer, 10 miles in the mud. Was quite a workout and I'm still sore. We haven't had a big rise in a while so I wasn't expecting much but I ended up with a decent haul. Favorites are the jaw sections and coprolite. Looking forward to spring storms hitting soon
  16. Sulphur River Black Fossils

    Fossils from the red sandstone layer in the North Sulphur River. Ladonia, Texas. Does anyone know why the fossils in this layer are black, or what mineral it is?
  17. Fossil ID Sulphur River

    My girlfriend found this on the Sulphur River this spring and it looked interesting. No idea what it is. Now that I'm on here I thought you guys might be able to figure it out.
  18. Hi y'all. First time poster. Just wanted to share my finds from today on the Sulphur River. Also I had some ID questions and was wondering what a guy has to do to find some vert out there.
  19. fossilized petrified nut of unknown

    Really really hot yesterday in Ladonia but found some really nice things here is something that my husband found would it be a fossilized petrified nut? I have a lot more photos to show but it keeps saying all my photo images are too large so here's one I hope this helps
  20. My sons are 5 and 9. I wanted to do something new that would indulge their adventurous side! So, we went to the Sulphur River for our first fossil expedition! We drove the hour from Plano and parked at Ladonia Fossil Park on 34. I had read about what to expect, so I was as prepared as a mother can be. -Sunscreen (no shade folks, so re-application is vital) -Bugspray (we didn't need this) -Bandaids (we needed this) -Antibiotic ointment (see above) -Snacks and Bottled water -Hammer (don't laugh, I'm a new adventurer) -Garden trowel (most useful) -Buckets, small shovels, and sand strainers (99 cent store) -Swim shoes (some folks wore rain boots) -Towel (at some point my youngest said he was cold from all the wading) -Hat to prevent sun over-exposure (I could have used this) -Extra clothing (left in car for the drive home-perfect) -Plastic bags for smaller fossils There is a steep embankment with some paved stairs we used to carefully climb down to the river. The boys wore their tennis shoes but we changed into swim shoes at the riverbank. This was important because my oldest son got stuck in the mud up to his knees at one point and lost both swim shoes to it's deep sticky force. Thank goodness we had his socks and tennis shoes waiting for us on the gravel bar! He had to walk back a good 30 minutes to retrieve them, slowly navigating river rock and watching for any potential hazards, but he made it! Our new and more experienced friends dug through the mud in an attempt to retrieve his swim shoes but they relented and gave them up to the river bed. We all decided we had just left a potential artifact for future generations to identify. The boys had fun making some friends and wading in the river. It was shallow enough to see through, and safe enough to wade in. I did note some rusty metal pieces on land as well as a few pieces of glass, but it isn't rampant. Just caution your kiddos to be vigilant. The boys had the most fun digging and throwing clay mounds at one another. Meanwhile, I enjoyed looking for fossils on the gravel bars. It took some time to pick up the pace and begin identifying what was fossil and what was rock, but I had a nice foundation going. I asked some regular's for assistance in identifying some of them. My youngest had a tough time catching on but was excited to bring me lots of rocks for our collection. I think my best advice is don't wander too far because you have to walk back. Also, stay away from the slick banks where the creek meets the river. This is where my son fell victim to the savage mud. Of course, we retrieved him, but he thought it was hilarious and continued to "fall" in time and again. Stay vigilant and walk slowly! As far as fossil finding, look for what stands out. I found my best pieces on the gravel bars, not in the creek. There is also great potential in sifting through the mundane little gravel within the shallowest of water because something nice can come from it! (See photo 1) I am going to post some of our finds. Feel free to help identify. I found so many different things and it was worth the trip fro this newbie! Here are links to our other finds that day! http://www.thefossil...hur-river-trip/ http://www.thefossil...r-river-trip-2/
  21. North Sulphur River Trip 2

    This is an addendum to my last post in this forum. Once again, I appreciate your help
  22. North Sulphur River Trip

    First, here is a link to the story of our adventure this weekend http://www.thefossil...ctive/?p=680185 I wanted to post some of our finds and a couple more obscure ones too. I numbered them for easy reference. Thank you for you help in advance! I'm excited to learn more about what we have found.
  23. I am the leader for my son's (7) Cub Scout den and we're heading to Ladonia next weekend to camp and look for "fossil gold". We know how to camp, but fossil hunting is new to me and the rest of the dads. Ultimately, we just hope that each boy can find at least one good fossil to cherish and I was wondering if anyone has any tips for a rookie. I grew up across the street from a creek so digging around and getting dirty I can do...knowing where to dig and what to look for is the problem. I spoke with the the Mayor of Ladonia Jan Cooper (who may be the nicest person I've ever spoken to on the phone) and she mentioned a local woman who likes to give fossil hunting tours down the river for kids but she's out of town next weekend so it looks like it's me and the other dads. Jan also directed me to this forum (which is fantastic by the way) since I told her I've always wanted to get in to fossil hunting since I was a kid but somehow life took over and now that I have two young children (5 & 7) I have a second chance to get involved in fossil hunting with them. So here I am :-) Sorry this is so long winded, but I really want to get in to this and know my kids would love to as well because they are fascinated with dinosaurs (just like almost all kids) so I know I would have some partners in my hunting trips in the future...I'll have to work on the wife. Thanks in advance for any help/advice you all can provide. I plan on visiting this site frequently from now on...it's great!
  24. Wife and I spent the day at the sulphur on Saturday. We didn't get the rain we expected the week before but still came out okay. Fav was probably the mosasaur tooth, has a nice yellow tint to it. Good day for enchodus jaw fragments got 6 of those. Found a nice bird point in a nearby creek as well.
  25. I made a last minute trip after my schedule cleared today. Started out in a creek near the sulphur and found 2 points 5 inches from each other, a first for me. Also found 3 shark teeth. Then I headed over to the big River. I didn't expect much cause I knew it would be full of prints. I got a nice workout, took me about a mile and a half to find my first piece. Ended up doing okay. Got a few mosy verts, 2 fish jaw frags, mosy jaw frag, enchodus jaw frag, shark tooth,and a point. Nice relaxing day out there.
