Northeast Texas Creek Hunt

Recommended Posts

JarrodB

Here's a few of my finds from my last couple of Northeast Texas creek hunts. It's been pretty slow but I'm trying again tomorrow. I did find a killer Ginsu shark tooth and cool fish vert with partial process. I didn't know what the little penny trinket thing was until an older gentleman told me lol. The one vert with four pics is Pleistocene but I have no clue from what. We did find a large nest of cottonmouths where two males were fighting for a large female. We saw herds of wild hogs and had quite the kayak adventure. One kayak trip was 5 miles deep in the woods where we had to go over 7 log piles with the kayaks. I'm also unsure what the little white tooth is with multiple pics by the trinket. It has thick enamel whatever it is. Hope you enjoy the pics. :)

Ya, the trinket thing is just a good luck charm and had a penny in the center at one time.

Just curious, since everything I can ever get you have to really dig for. I am always seeing these "in situ" pictures of things in the river beds where it is just sitting on the surface not even partially buried. Is that really how you find them? Or do you dig it out then set up a shot with it on the surface?

99 % of my finds are surface finds washed out from rivers and creeks. My shots are exactly how I find them.

So glad we didn't run into any snakes down there. Great finds. You should put that doll head in a package next time you sell something as a mystery gift lol.

It's unusual to see a couple of male cottonmouths doing 'battle' this late in the year!  When were the pictures of the snakes taken?  Breeding season is generally in the Spring!

 

(Oh...nice fossils, by the way! :trex:)

Looks like you had fun Jarrod. Did you take the flamingo home and put it in your front yard?  :)
