I took a trip to nsr after some decent rain in the middle of January. Here in Texas the weather can be hot, cold, or anything in between and it turned out it was a nice day in the 60s. I found a decent mosasaur vert, some decent ammonites, and a few other items. Let me know what you think. 

 

Pictures 4 and 5 where of a huge ammonite. You can tell by the rock pick it was over a foot wide and the picture doesn't show but the outer shell that was deteriorating was iridescent and really pretty. I don't think I have seen an ammonite with actual shell still intact however everything else was pretty much eroded. I also provided some in situ shots of the verts. Also pictures 28 and 29 are of a really worn piece of bone that had one side covered in matrix or was possibly fused with another type of rock? 

 

Anyone know what items: 8 and 9, 10 and 11 are?

Also I haven't done any research yet but it appears there are several different types of ammonites I found. 

Picture 27 are those burrows? If so any idea what creature made them?

Lastly item 6 and 7 appear to be cow teeth. I'm assuming they are modern?

What a great day! Nice finds! 

Thanks. Even if i didn't find a single thing it is just nice to get out in the riverbed. Although i still enjoy the great fossils at NSR too.

Nice haul!

 

Really hope to get to NSR with the kids, before it is too late. Looks like a great time to be had.
