Fossil Tracks?

Recommended Posts

Not sure if these are fossil tracks or not. There is more than one and they are all similar. Maybe some kind of sea creature digging? They were steps to a creek so I can’t place a certain age to them. The age around here is Late Cretaceous so sometime around that time is most likely. Denton, Texas, USA.

Those are commonly called feeding traces.

Thanks. Would they be from a arthropod?

Possible, but other critters may have made them. It is hard to assign a perpetrator unless they are found fossilized in the trace.
