Took a quick trip with my wife to a few spots in NE TX including the North Sulphur River. Found a nice variety with my fav being the mosasaur/fish coprolite.

Nice finds!

Did You collect the clam in the first picture, or just the tool?

The clam in the top photo, Corbicula fluminea, is modern Asian immigrant. They are common in lakes and canals in Texas, Arizona and other areas. See Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corbicula_fluminea
