  1. Went out to the creek this Saturday in SW Tarrant county. Didn't find much other than some small gastropod, echinoid and oyster shell, but did noticed something interesting next to the creek wall. There seems to been a shoreline that once existed near here since wave-formed ripple usually forms near the shoreline, but then later covered by sea again. Wave patterns seems to be very similar to modern shoreline when waves pushes sands into round piles that are shown on the last two pictures.
  2. EDIT: Doh! Just a few more minutes of searching and I found it. Never mind. I have been trying to find this paper on a nodosaurid scuteling from the Paw Paw Formation of Texas with no luck. Does anyone have access to it? Jacobs LL, Winkler DW, Murry PA, Maurice JM. A nodosaurid scuteling from the Texas shore of the Western Interior Seaway. In: Carpenter K, Hirsch KF, Horner J editors. Dinosaur Eggs and Babies. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press; 1994. pp. 337–346. The only information I have about it now comes from a few references to it in related papers and this tweet.
  3. I found this last weekend in the Grayson Formation in Tarrant county, Texas. I have never found a Cretaceous gastropod that was so squatty. Most that I find are elongated to some degree or another, but there is no elongation to this one. This was posterior end down in the creek bed embedded in the limestone. I popped it out, but I guess part of it remained in the limestone. I tried to prep the matrix off, but I can’t tell where the matrix ends and the shell begins since it appears to be a steinkern. There is no ornamentation on it at all. It is about 36 mm at the widest whole part, but looks like it was at least 50 mm wide at one time. I can’t tell how wide the aperture or last whorl was. The total height of the gastropod is 20 mm tall. The overall shape is lenticular. I don’t think there are many lenticular gastropods in the book I have. I couldn’t find one that matched it. Top view (which is actually the posterior end of the shell) Side view Bottom view (which I believe is the anterior end of it) Any help at all would be appreciated.
  4. Hello all, I have been a long time lurker and decided to finally have a voice. I am a long time rock lover, and unfortunately am in the beginning stages of trying to learn everything I forgot as a child, ie. I am happy to take constructive criticism. I have been traipsing through muddy creeks and cut roads looking for rocks that are interesting. I happened across the embedded rock a week ago and I don't know where to begin in the identification process. The picture attracted is on a slope that leads to a creek in Richland Hills, TX, just east of Fort Worth. I assume the city cemented rocks together to prevent erosion and they did a really great job. This fossil(?) is about 8 inches by 10 inches and appears to be a rib cage. Would anyone be able to help me in determining the proper steps to take to identify what type of animal this was?
  5. Good morning. I found what appears to be a fossilized vertebrae process. It was found on a gravel bar in a creek in Fort Worth, Texas (Tarrant County). The fossil is broken off on the end. I wanted to see if anyone can help verify what type of animal this is from. I appreciate any help that can be provided. Thanks!

  7. Hi, I found this in Tarrant County.... the size is aprox 4 to 5 inch in diameter... Found it around White Settlement in For Worth... I have narrowed it to either Goodland Formation or Fort Worth Limestone. I thought it is a crinoid but a good friend that knows thousand times more than I do, recommend to post it here.... Any suggestions??? Thanks!
