Very nice! Did you happen to take any photos of the sites? Love to see the environment you are hunting in.

 

 

Cheers.

A dang shame about the new rules on the Waco Pit. Awesome little pyritized ammonites!

 

I suspect that the Del Rio formation is exposed at other locations, just waiting to be found. Army Core of Engineers need to go build a road or dam and stop wringing their hands over that exposure that they already tightly control. 

 

Great finds, thanks for sharing.

Lots of amazing finds! 

Love the heteromorph, but the bryozoans are my favourite! :wub:

Thanks for sharing.

my "best finds" of the day.

And I love that you love the bivalve.  Texas Cretaceous has such a large variety of bivalves; and they often do not get their due for some reason.  :D

So I was wondering which site to visit tomorrow as I am visiting Texas currently, and I think your post made up my mind. The Waco pit and mammoth museum will see me tomorrow forsure! I love the heteromorph shell, it is amazing looking! :envy:

@Monica - yep, that is the Mariella! Lovely little thing, isn't it?  :)  Thanks all of y'all. We are so lucky here in Texas to have so much amazing geology and paleontology all within a days drive. Of course, it TAKES a days drive to get OUT of Texas....when you are smack in the middle.
