Recommended Posts

Did a quick hunt this am. I rarely find centrums at this locality but found 2 today. I'm thinking they are associated, found close by. Eagle Ford group, 86-92 mya.

I'm thinking Cretodus, likely Cretodus crassidens for that spectacular shark tooth.

I'm also kind of jealous of folks who seem to be able to get out and hunt every day in such productive sites. I guess not all of us have to work 60 or 70 hours a week just to sort of keep up.

Yes I do consider myself lucky. I work odd hours and take advantage of my breaks. Also helps to have some places close by. I figure I should keep working so I don't over due it : )
