  1. Post Oak Creek Sherman Tx

    We are back asking for more help. Hope we do not wear out our welcome. LOL. We are very excited about our new hobby close to home and you all have been great help. We went to post oak creek in Sherman TX today. Please let us know if better pics are needed. We think A. Is just a modern piece of bone from a deer, pig, cow, etc... We posted it in the pic just to help is learn. If better pics of other pieces are needed please reply and we will take them. M & T
  2. Hello all, I recently discovered some awesome petrified wood in some large landscape river rock near my office. I have always collected petrified wood since I was a kid and this peaked my interest again. In an attempt to find out more about the wood, I found out that the rock was taken from the Colorado River near La Grange, TX. As I was collecting more specimens, I came across this which appears to be fossilized bone. It is much lighter than what a rock that size would be and has many odd features that seem to resemble bone. Can you guys offer some knowledge on whether you think this is bone and any other information you may have? I love collecting fossils/rocks but have not studied any sort of paleontology so I am totally green to formations, periods, etc. Most of my finds get put on display at my office or home and I never really know much about them. Im starting to learn though! The following pictures are the "bone" in question. Thank you!
  3. Our second summer trip was up to the Glen Rose, TX area. We rented a great place via Home Away that had a fossil hunting spot. Super convenient when the heat was >110F. We hit the Dinosaur Valley State Park and went fossil hunting at the property we stayed at. Found lots of great cretaceous fossils. Still trying to identify a bunch of them. We found heart urchins, devil's toenails, I think there are some Oxytropidoceras fragments, etc. Oxytropidoceras fragments? Not sure what this is yet.
  4. Looking for ID on tooth

    Not sure what in the world this is. Any ideas? Found in the North Sulphur River.
  5. Geode??

    Is this anything? Best pic I could get. The green area is crystal like and shiney.
  6. Help identify

    I found this about 30 years ago in a creek by my house. No one has been able to identify it yet. Any help would be appreciated.
  7. Found this specimen in Post Oak Creek in North Texas. For those unfamiliar it cuts through Cretaceous era deposits. Appears to me to be a very worn jawbone fragment. Strange to me though how the "teeth" appear to be clustered as opposed to having a linear orientation. Mosasaur and Plesiosaur teeth and jawbones have been found in this area, but not sure if this looks like either. Any suggestions?
  8. Brachiopod from Jacksboro, TX

    Looking for help on an id for the following brachiopod from Jacksboro, TX. Scale is in centimeters. Formation is the Finis Shale of the Graham Formation, Pennsylvanian. Thanks in advance for your help.
  9. Doctor?

    Please take a look at this. It's about 8"x4"x5"... guessing. But extremely interesting. I found it in a creek bed here in Round Rock TX. What is it?
  10. Ammonite or echinoid?

    Hi all! My son found this fossil in Pease Park, Austin ,TX, Travis County limestone. He wants to use it for our Christmas card! But we need to know what it is, so we can adjust the text on the card. It looks like an coilopoceras ammonite (see image below) , they are common in the region and the number of lines seems right, but someone in a fossil forum thought it was an echinoid, like a star fish? What could it be? Does anyone have an idea? Thank you!! Ammonites in the region:
  11. Riddle me this one, Batman

    Sorry about the title and tags. I don't know what to say. Tags are hard too. Anyway, give me a name please so I can go learn.
  12. Good Evening, I just got back from Bastrop, Texas with a rock that appears to contain a fossil. There may be more than just the obviously different item begging to be identified so I will post pictures showing more views. The height difference of the center cleavage is roughly 1mm. I'm inclined to think this is a foot claw or, because of the area, a sea creature. It may be nothing but a rock within a rock. What do y'all think this is? Any help is much appreciated. -Scott

  22. Taking A Buddy A-Huntin'

    I haven't yet ID'd the ammonites from this newly found site, but the bowling ball nautiloids are Eutrephoceras. Right after finding the site and scoring a few nice ammonites, I informed my wife of my intentions of taking my friend there....and she threw some wife clout to get her own trip in first! Now I have another buddy in mind who may enjoy a little cephalopod beating bliss...
  23. Dallas, Tx - Creek Bed Finds

    Here are some interesting finds from a creek bed in Dallas, TX. There are all kinds of concretions in the area, and these could very well be just that. The first one seems to be some kind of sponge or coral? The second one looks like some sort of bone, but who knows: The third one is a lot larger. It has characteristics of nodules/concretions I have found (with little nuggets that come off) but it seems to also have a larger continuous solid surface (second image) as well as a 'spongy' side. Cheers, Sergej
  24. First time fossil hunting and here are some of my better looking fossils. Any idea what I've found here? I'm on my phone so can't edit file size in a timely manner but I posted the pics on my site for now here http://www.donnyeisenbach.com/ Would love to hear feedback on what I found.
  25. Here is a vert that is not like any of the others I've found. It's 2 3/4 inches tall and rather spool like, but oval instead of round. It's not well preserved but does exhibit the grainy look I see in mosasaur verts. My 1st thought was plesiosaur but it does not really look like what I see in any of the pictures. Now I'm thinking croc? Your guesses are welcome.
