  1. The back end of our vacation plans got blown out of the water by covid19 so we are making some adjustments. Currently we are slated to be at Theissen quarry in OK in late June. Any chance the water at Lake Texoma is low enough to make it worth the ride? Or any other suggestions in that general region? I am heading east/northeast for home in PA after.
  2. Tooth?

    I think this may be a broken tooth? If it is, can anyone give me any help on what it may have belonged to? Thanks in advance. 1 1/2” long by 1” wide by 1/2” thick
  3. Fish Rib

  4. I had a great day on the North Sulphur River.
  5. Always fun to find these suckers eagle ford/atco 86-92 mya
  6. Bone marrow crystallization? Or...pet wood?

    Hi everyone! We made another trip to the Brazos River off I10 in Texas a few days ago. One can find bones etc from the Pleistocene there. The water was up a bit, but we still found some interesting items. The most interesting thing we found was this fragment, it is kind of flat, I keep thinking rib bone. What is super interesting is what would be the interior (if it were marrow). It is white, and seems to have veins running through it. Have any of you seen anything like this, and is it possible that during fossilization crystals filled in the marrow part and that may be the original structure? Or - is it something else that I don't know of? Photo attached. And thanks!
  7. North Sulfur River Hunt

    I completely forgot that this last weekend was a "holiday" weekend and went on a day tripper up to the North Sulfur River near Dallas (an almost 5 hour drive). I met a new fossil friend named John who was going to take me to some of the more 'out of the way" spots he usually hunts to try to find a few specific things - a mosasaur tooth and vert being the top of my list, plus he was going to take me to a spot where we could hopefully find a really awesome looking cephalopod (Scaphites). The first spot was already picked over, sadly, the disadvantage of not getting there before 10am I guess! I found a few nice baculites (which I love and was happy to find including a cool red one) and some other nice little things, gastropods and such. Then I thought I had found something awesome....a nice little bone stuck in the gravel. WHoo hoo!! Was it a mosasaur??? Something Pleistocene? A GLYPTODON???? I was so excited!! Until I got home and looked it up and .....it's a cow astralagus. Yay. Not even a bison. Meh. (I think, anyways...I did look it up and saw some previous FF posts about the difference between Bos and Bison and pretty sure mine is just a Bos). So a question....was Bos around in the Pleistocene? This isn't 'modern" bone, I think it is at least partially mineralized. But I really don't know. So, as relatively disappointing as that was, I still came home with some GREAT stuff- a couple of nice shark teeth (a new one I had not found before, even if it was John who picked it up...I WOULD have found it if he wasn't ahead of me....but he was nice and gave it to me. hahahha) AND even though we busted open a bunch of phosphate nodules with no luck at finding the Scaphites I was looking for.....he had an extra one to give me. SO I came home with lots of fossil gifts! My "consolation prize" - Trachyscaphyties . 3 inches diameter . My first Goblin Shark Tooth : Scapanorhynchus 2 inches Baculites - love the suture pattern Two chunks of a red one (not sure if they were from the same one, but they sort of fit together!) A different Baculites - not sure of species, but it doesn't have the same suture patterns and has more surface detail. maybe just not as worn down? The Atralagus bone: And this i THINK is mosasur bone, but very worn down. 2 inches A cute little Inoceramus clam 1 inch and lastly, some Exogyra ponderosas. Hopefully I can make it out there a few more times before they dam the river and maybe find that danged Mosasaur tooth and vert.
  8. Fossil ID Requested

    Good Afternoon! Came across this rock yesterday, looks like a tooth to me, but I'm no expert. Went out during the storm yesterday and got some great points, tools and some coral as well. In the same area I come across mostly those bottle cap shells, coral and oyster fossils. Found in Austin, TX down near the pleasant valley bridge on the east side. Thanks for the help!
  9. Baby Mosasaur Or Turtle?

    I think this is a baby mosasaur vert most likely clidastes but it could be turtle. The experts can't seem to agree.
  10. Sulphur River Texas

    I found a little bit of everything at my last Sulphur River Texas hunt. I really like the mosasaur flipper bone and the tiny vert.
  11. Tooth from Post Oak Creek, TX

    I thought this was a sharks tooth but now I’m having second guesses.
  12. Texoma Lake

    Anyone familiar with Texoma Lake in Texas and Oklahoma? There’s a ton of ammonites there I heard but where specifically? It says Eisenhower Park and a dam area. Are there still plenty there or are these areas depleted? I went to Ladonia Fossil Park Friday and was disappointed by not finding much
  13. Mineral Wells, TX Fossil Finds

    Hello Fossil Friends! I recently went on a kayak camping trip on the Brazos River in North Texas and made a stop by the Mineral Wells Fossil Park. We found some incredible fossils both on the river and at the park! I was so excited about our finds that cleaning and ID'ing the fossils took priority over any cleaning and tidying up of camping gear... I started with the Mineral Wells fossils, since there were a lot of great specimens and some decent information available online about the fossils from that park. I was able to ID a lot of specimens easily (crinoids, nautiloids, bivalves, brachiopods, bryozoa, gastropods, sponges, corals and trilobites). This post contains the fossils (or what I think look like fossils!) from Mineral Wells Fossil Park that I have not been able to ID. This is my first attempt at any fossil hunting and identification, so please bear with me and I am open to any and all advice! I don't have a macro lens, so these pictures are just about as good as it's going to get. HOWEVER I would be willing to try to get more/better pictures if needed to help ID! Any assistance TFF community can give me on ID'ing these would be so greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance. Location: Mineral Wells Fossil Park, Texas Park is dated to Pennsylvanian Period, just over 300 million years ago #1 #2. It is a bit difficult in the picture to see what I think is interesting about this find... In the first (scaled) image, it looks like there may be some small bumps around a central raised area.. possible echinoid plate? #3 #4 #5. #6 #7 #8 #9 #10. This didn't clean up as well as I'd hoped, but I picked it because it looked like a closed mollusk. A piece broke off during cleaning which makes me think it may be just a rock? #11. Crinoid cirrus? Root? Maybe a small piece of stalk? #12 #13 #14 #15 #16 #17
  14. Monster Find

    I have hunted teeth for years in Texas and elsewhere and have found thousands of teeth. Last week while walking my dog in my neighborhood, my dog lost her ball in the creek. I slid down to look for it and of course couldn’t help but look in the gravel at my feet and found a horse tooth. Not really that uncommon for a Texas creek and I had found one in this creek before. Once we finished our walk I decided to head back and see if there was anything else to be found. I have tried to hunt this creek before but found nothing. It was getting late but the exposed gravel bar was calling me. I saw something sticking out that resembled the root of a Ptychodus tooth but it was huge. So huge that I almost didn’t pick it up because it was so large that I thought it was impossible to be a tooth. When I flipped it over and saw the ridges of a Ptychodus tooth I still could not believe it. Ptychodus are one of my favorite teeth to collect and this tooth though broken is something special and to be found literally in my hood. This is the largest Ptychodus I have found or even seen in person for that matter. Ptychodus marginalis. Measures just shy of 50mm With a broken edge.

  16. Mosasaur vs

    How can you tell the difference from mosasaur and Plesiosaur from NSR?
  17. Sorry, had to make another topic due to pic size... Number 3 - I haven't seen this one before..
  18. Bone, bone and more bone...maybe?

    Hey all. I found these Friday at NSR. I found quite a few interesting. It was a good day. I have figured most of the others out except for these and a few others. These for now. I do want to give a shout out to a young lady who asked if everything was alright due to having a flat this morning when leaving NSR. That was nice of you and I could of been more cordial. Thank you. Ok, on to the bones... Number 1
