Hill County creek, October 6th

I decided to take a break in picking through the matrix from my last trip and actually get out and hunt this morning. I drove over to Hill County, and tried out a new creek. I really didn't find anything worth mentioning there, left and stopped on the way home at the creek where I'd found so much mud three weeks ago. It was much drier this time, and I had a lot easier time navigating it. But I still didn't find many fossils. Just like last time though, it produced one that made the trip really worthwhile. Does anyone know what this fish tail belonged to? A Xiphactinus, maybe?

Hard to say.  Could be any number of fish. Cimolichthys, Enchodus, Xiphactinus, Pachyrhizodus, ... etc.

Vertebrae are not diagnostic in fish, as far as I know.  :unsure:
