Yesterday it was a nice winter day here in Brown County TX, 30 degree in the morning up to 70 by early afternoon. Took the kids out for a while to a friends ranch for a little fossil and artifact hunting and some rock throwing. Found a few interesting pieces and a couple artifacts. One decent point and a "hoe" digging tool (probably) based on the usage chips on the wide edge. Also my son found a neat bryozoan ball and a brachiopod that has lolophores preserved and showing. Crinoid calix. Red stone is Fuslinids and worm tubes. And I keep a couple of horn corals that had defined growth rings jus
I went out to a site near Lake Brownwood here in Cen Texas Penn last spring. To my disappointment the land owner had decided to cover the exposure with dirt so he could grow grass?! I have hunted this spot in the past and it yields very well preserved fossils but he had not quit cover a small wash so I was able to find some he had not buried. The next time I try this spot there will probably only be grass. "Bulldozer giveth and bulldozer takes away" as someone said one time.
I found this nice brachiopod/bivalve shell fossil during my trip this year to Okinawa. I believe it is cenozoic in age. I would like to identify the species. I successfully chipped it out of the rock- no, more like it popped out itself- and here's the photo.
