  1. Large fish/reptile vertebrae

    Hello I found these two in some loose soil from a creek wall that has recently eroded. Each vertebra was found around 7 ft from one another. Found in Central Texas (Travis county)
  2. Xiphactinus

    Here's a few Xiphactinus fossils in my collection that I collected at the North Sulphur River Texas. My arm for scale lol.
  3. My Growing Collection!

    My man cave is coming along nicely. Most are personal finds from Northeast Texas. A few were gifts or purchases.
  4. Xiphactinus Vert

  5. Water was a little high but I found a few things at the North Sulphur River Texas.
  6. I found this vertebra last week in a Cretaceous deposit in Monmouth County New Jersey. It measures a shade under an inch and is a lot bigger than the normal fish vert I usually find here so I wanted to ask - is there a way to tell the difference between Enchodus and Xiphactiuns vetus? My initial thought was Enchodus but I didn't see any examples online that looked like this one. Also, any recommendation on how I should prep this? I only showed one side because the rest of this is embedded in the matrix. I currently use really old dental tools. Thanks! -Frank
  7. New Addition - Xiphactinus!

    Hi all, It has been sometime since I added something new to my collection but I just obtained a juvenile Xiphactinus. Discovered by my friend in Kansas many years ago. Both sides were preserved and so it was mounted on a rotatable stand. These are pretty rare nowadays in my opinion. Enjoy!
  8. Hello! These were all found in Monmouth County, New Jersey (Late Cretaceous). I have believed the first tooth to be Xiphactinus Vetus for years but am a little thrown off by the general texture of it and after searching images of Xiphactinus teeth, I can't find another that looks similar. I have found deteriorated Mosasaur teeth with a similar appearance so I was wondering if it could just be stream-worn. The tooth is about an 1.5 inches long, has two very defined cutting edges and a nice curve (which are all consistent with X. Vetus). The last thing I could add - it either has 'fluting' or is faceted but I'm not sure how to determine that. The second set of pictures is of different shark teeth from the same location. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
  9. Western Interior Sea way finds

    Ive been hunting the Sulfur River for 10 years and here is a small handful of the Sulfur River finds of mine including the partial Toxochelid I found sticking out of the shale and the 35 pieces of shell and a couple pieces of bone I recovered.
  10. NJ Cretaceous & Mammal Teeth

    Hello everyone, this is Trevor. I have been meaning to post this for a long time and finally got around to doing it. I would appreciate help identifying these finds. Also, stay tuned I have a trip report coming out later this week, probably Friday. What type of ammonite is this? (middle)
  11. Partial Xiphactinus Jaw

    From the album North Sulphur River

  12. Unknown Cretaceous tooth

    I found this tooth last week in the blufftown formation that runs through South Alabama. It was found on the same bar as the fully rooted Xiphactinus tooth I posted a couple of weeks ago. To me, it appears to be another tooth with a partial root but I’m unsure. It has characteristics of both Xiphactinus audax and vetus so that’s what has me so puzzled. It’s just over 1.25 inches long and a .25 inches wide. Any thoughts/comments would be greatly appreciated!

  14. Xiphactinus jaws advice

    I need some advice here. It's been a dream of mine to have a xiphactinus jaw, and here I have two. They are both dentaries: right and left side. (Let me say I will not be purchasing these for probably a good few years.) I wanted to know if it's possible to separate them and remount them to make an inflated lower jaw? I would probably have to send them out to have a professional do it because I have a feeling this is a job for the masters.
  15. Unknown Cretaceous tooth

    I’m pretty sure this is an xiphactinus tooth but I’ve never seen one that’s fully rooted before so that’s what has me questioning my original thought. I have several X-fish in my collection but all appear to sheds or broken off where the root would’ve been. I found this tooth last Sunday on a bar where I’ve found 10-12 other X-fish. It was found in the Blufftown formation of Alabama and is 1-5/8” long, 5-16” wide. Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated!
  16. Xiphactinus Tooth

    From the album Cretaceous Fossils of New Jersey

    Xiphactinus sp. Wenonah Formation Late Cretaceous Ramanessin Brook, Monmouth County, NJ
  17. I haven't had much time to hunt lately but I did manage to squeeze in a North Sulphur River creek hunt. My finds were not great but I did manage to find a nice variety. The fossil horse cannon bone is probably my favorite due to the preservation. It's solid rock. Lol my grandson carried it around the house all night when I brought it home. The Xiphactinus vert, old bottles and artifacts were a nice bonus to the usual Mosasaur material. This creek has some killer flint in it so I can see a nice arrowhead coming soon.
