  3. Coprolite???

    Hello Trying to figure out if this is coprolite! Just one of the fossils I found this last Weekend. I find most of my fossils ironically while metal detecting. I'm new to the forum and look forward to talking and sharing!

  7. Sulphur River Texas!

    I did a half day hunt in Northeast Texas. It was hot! The big flathead catfish was keeping me company.
  8. A planted fake tooth??

    I am seriously stumped with this one. Maybe you folks can help me out. I found this during the weekend out near the bottom of the panhandle in the Jurassic Triassic undivided. It was found when sifting rubble through my mesh net and I won’t lie when I say I leapt with excitement when I found it. but... the more I look at it the more it seems like there is something off about it. For one, I already tried looking up known dinosaur fossils found in that region of Texas and I cannot find a tooth looking similar to this one. This tooth also doesn’t have the same coloration that other fossilized Dino teeth seem to have. The distinction between the crown and the root looks odd to me, and finally, the tooth is conical, with no notable serrations. This led me to begin wondering if it was possibly a fake?? I have heard of people planting fake meg teeth along beach shores but never out in the middle of nowhere. The tooth is hard, and I’ve tried a scratch test to see if there was any paint or epoxy and it doesn’t seem to have any. So what do you guys think? Any help is appreciated!
  9. Dallas creek Rudists fossil?

    I found this long cylinder sticking out of the creek wall few weeks ago. I had no choice , but to break it from the rock. Ended up in several pieces. I'm not quiet sure 100 percent what this is. I searched the forum, but can't figure out other than Rudist.
  10. North TX Cretaceous bone ID. Dino?

    Any ideas? Out of the eagle ford of north Texas. 85-90 mya.
  11. Hi Eveyrone! I know that ID'ing bivalve steinkerns is difficult if not impossible. But these are such an unusual shape. I have not found anything in my hunting - and I've found a LOT o bivalves. These are from Blanco TX - Glen Rose formation. They look like a bit like Trigonia (or pterotrigonia) in shape but not quite so "fortune cookie" curved , but have the really dramatic "underside" of something like an Artica. I do not have the Houston Gem and Mineral Society book on Bivalves, so if anyone does...would you mind seeing if you can find this one? It is really intriguing me! Thanks!!
  12. Northeast Texas Hunt!

    Fun hunt yesterday. I found some huge broken sawfish teeth, shark teeth, enchodus jaw and teeth, mosasaur verts, big heart clam which I've never found in the Sulphur river area and a killer petrified wood Gary point. It got hot around 2PM so I got out early.
  13. New Primitive Hadrosaur From Texas

    Newly described hadrosaur may have used its teeth to scoop or saw. https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/laelaps/paleontologists-unveil-shovel-billed-dinosaur/
  14. Vertebra Bone

    We were in Milsap, Texas floating the Brazos river (off of Hwy 20 and 281) My husband thought he stepped on a large rock, but it was this! I can't figure out what it comes from. I looked at most livestock vertebrae and it didn't seem to match up. Very curious what we found! Please help! :-)
  15. galveston shark tooth ID

    Hey y'all, got back from a trip to Galveston yesterday. I found a few neat things that I'll post in a new album later. I'm not sure about this shark tooth, though. My initial thought was dusky or some carcharhinus. However the nutrient groove reminds me of sphyrna. The tooth in question is the larger brown tooth in the pictures. It has fine, even serrations, and a deep nutrient groove. The last three pictures include a sphyrna tooth for comparison. Thank you!
  16. Need help identifying

    Hello. My name is Joy and I know I will find this forum very useful. I am learning about how to spot fossils and may need help from time to time. I found this today here in Katy in a pile of rocks near a flower bed and would really like your input on what I am looking at. Thank you for your time and expertise.
  17. Texas marine cretaceous creek fossil

    Hello everyone, I've been doing some creek fossils hunting in Dallas area recently and came across/found numerous bones in pieces. Not sure what these vertebrate bones these belongs to, but they are 12 inches or smaller and looks like mostly arm or leg bones. These animal used to swim, crawl around here around 140 to 66 million years ago. Buried in Eagle Ford Shale or Austin Chalk limstone layers about 10 to 20 feet down from top to bottom in the creek layers.
  18. What do you think it is?

    Came across this while my son and I were metal detecting. I saw some teeth in a big clump of dirt and sand so we took it home and I let it sit in water about 7 minutes and realized it was a fossil. Could anyone give me an idea what it is?
  19. 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
  20. North Central Texas Fossil?

    Just wondering if this is a fossil and of it is, what do you think it might be? Sorry I didn't have a ruler when taking pics. My thumb is on the pics and it's about an inch or a little less across. This was found in a limestone riverbed near Justin, Texas (North Central Texas). We have found many other smaller marine fossils (actually casts I think - I am not an expert by any means) that I am pretty sure are from the Cretaceous Period in the same area. I have more pictures that are higher resolution, but I can't upload them here due to the size restrictions. Thanks in advance for any info or ideas that you might have.
  21. fish teeth from Texas Cretaceous

    Hello Everyone! I have some more fossils that have me kinda stumped. I'm fairly certain the first one is a species of Encodus (though I don't know which one). Scale bar is in millimeters. Each ones down view is to the right of it (sorry the down views are blurry I couldn't get pictures from my microscope). All four are from the Atco formation near Dallas. I would greatly appreciate input on my fossils, I also hope I'm not posting too much.
  22. Fossil Gum Ball?

    Found this yesterday. Not perfectly round, but really close. Very smooth except the “eyes”. There is a pattern of sorts that looks like a crab, maybe. Diameter is the same as a penny.
  23. Clam/oyster?

    Howdy. Found this in a creekbed in South Texas. Curious as to what exactly it is as well as approximate age and what else can be found in the same area as these. I find quite a few of these so they seem extremely common. Typically in various sizes this being around the average
  24. That’s what I see but im not and expert(yet). Any info greatly appreciated thanks!
