Echies and Ammonites of Texas (Georgetown Formation)

Recommended Posts

And then the Ammonites!  Found a nice variety of ammonites - some whole small ones, and some nice BIG chunks. It's always a treat to find ammonites in any form for me, I take all of them home! 

 

99% positive the first four are Mortoniceras...quite common in Texas as far as ammonites go: 

My first find was this little one:

Then a slightly bigger one

Then an even bigger one:

But I sure wish I had ALL of this BIG one!

I found one chunk of Oxytropidoceras. Would have loved to found more. They are my favorite.

And lastly, I was happy to stumble upon a mostly complete if very water worn Engonocieras:

So all in all...a good hunt in the Georgetown Formation of Texas!

I did indeed! And it was beautiful too! Finding fossils is great, but just being outdoors is the best part. Naah...finding the fossils is the best part. hahahah Who am I kidding.

Jamie, it looks like you scored from two or three different formations.  Your echinoids and the last two ammonites are from the Walnut and Comanche Peak formations.  ;)

 

Looks like a fun hunt!
