  1. Found this on gravel bank in creek close to DFW, in a narrow band of Alluvium smack dab in middle of Fluviatile terrace deposits. I'm not sure what to make of it, appreciate input!

    Tarrant County 11-21-20

    Here are some pictures of my latest fossil hunting trip. I have been going to post oak creek a lot for shark teeth and wanted to try something new out. I found a steep embankment on a river in Tarrant county with several partial ammonites sticking out. After climbing down the embankment I found an assortment of fossils. I am not sure of the period or the formation in Tarrant county but there was quite a variety. Picture 2 is a conglomeration of marine fossils. Picture 3 is a nice ammonite I went back and chiseled away later. I will post that picture later but it was a very nice enact one. Pict

    Serpulid or Vermetidae?

    I already had 2 little piles of worm tubes then I found this larger single one today and appears the tube broke and exposed the worm. Examined the smaller ones more closely and noticed they have pyritized insides and cracks like on shell, started to wonder if they were gastropods, I see shiny spots and know the worm isn't preserved and tubes aren't shiny so doubting if they are Serpulid tubes. Also see what appears to be apeture on larger worm, so what are they? Last picture is backside of large one.

    Is this a razor clam?

    Was out catching minnows today and checked out a section of creek wall that collapsed and found this in sandy dirt, it was buried about 6 ft into side and 20 ft from top of creek bank, it had been buried a long time. I haven't found much on razor clams if that's what it is, I think Grayson up in Denton Co is closest location they are found. That said, this part of creek is mix of Cretaceous Eagle Ford, QT and QAL.

    Equine distal metacarpal? Recent?

    Found this in creek that is in Trinity river flood plain, consists of QT and QAL where I find bison bones. I think this is horse but it is large for a cannon bone, it passes flame test but unsure if it's fossil so double checking my ID.
  6. I collected this fossil many years ago as a kid, from a very rocky creek bed in Gorman, Texas. North Central Texas. No idea as to the geological age of the area. The "scales" have a slightly curved face that rises from the center to the sides, but not front and back. They also seem to be leaned on top of another similar to how normal scales are, all pointing the same direction. Almost looks as though the back side of the specimen has bone fragments visible? To my untrained eye, this what I assumed. From my own research, so far I assume it could be from a fish

    Help with micro fossil ID

    All of these came from LENS sample, in first set I know the brown tooth is Echnodus, what are the other two? Oh, whatever that little dot with 2 white root looking things is maybe somewhat irrelevant, it disappeared. Next set of things I had put on tape so really couldn't move them, some of it just disregard, but other than Echnodus teeth what else is there? Esp. the odd little black ball. The largest tooth is 1/2 cm.
  8. Just washed off couple pounds of dried mud on my shoes from my outing yesterday to Grayson spot. Was delighted to find another fossil! I have not been able to ID it, first I thought deer heart clam but I see the hinge, is this a Brachiopod?
  9. This is rather alien to me compared to what I usually find as far fossils, esp in this creek which is mix of Eagle Ford and little bit of everything. Thinking it has to be part of an ammonite but can't visualize it since this is straight and flat. Don't usually see any internal structure so just guessing that's what this is. The colors are awesome, is it nacre or opalized?
  10. I've driven by this field for years with a big ravine in the distance and decided to check it out since it wasn't fenced or posted and glad I did. The ravine was a good 30-40 yards long, probably 10ft+ at deep end and around 5ft wide, as I got closer the dirt changed to grey clay mud with little vegetation, the surface was sandy and rocky. First thing I saw was the large Echinoid, then peices of what I thought were ammonites until I found a more intact one, then I thought Turritella but didn't quite fit. Had a heck of a time trying to ID them and finally ran across Turrilites, I think that's w

    Woodbine mystery

    Went out to Grapevine lake to check out the water level after all the rains, I rarely bring back anything, there's only oysters and gastropods by the dam and I couldn't get that close. This rock caught my eye, looked like it might have something in it. It wasn't until I got home and looked at it with loop that I saw the crystals, really hesitate to use that word because I've never seen any kind of crystalization in this part of woodbine. As far as I know no kind of fish fossils are here but that's my only thought, something fishy like fins. Most of them have an opalescent shine that's hard to

    Trace fossil ID

    Eagle Ford sandstone, found a cool trace fossil and curious what made it. Could only find one somewhat distinguishable thing and really can't tell what it is other than looks like shell. Lots of burrows and maybe worm? Found several little circles with dot in the middle but hard to get all images. The trace looks like a sperm best way to describe it.

    Help ammonite id

    I dug these two cephalopods a couple months apart at the same place within the Cretaceous of North Texas and did not know if they were an ammonite or nautilus species. I do think they are part of the same genus though. After more research I thought it could be an oxytropidoceras species. Still not sure what genus or species it is but I'm leaning towards a type of ammonite. The place I found these ammonites at, usually has Mariella ammonites and no other type of ammonite. But these two are the only ammonites from the area I've seen besides Mariella species. Any help would be appreciated.

    North Sulphur River Trip

    Pictures from my latest NSR trip. Some mosasaur verts and bones, a jaw, ammonites, baculites, and of course the normal array of oddities. No really good verts but still fun. Does anyone know what jaw this would have come from? Also the turtle looking shell and the large white bone next to it feel a lot heavier than recent bone to me so maybe Pleistocene. Ill send a few close ups of those and of the crazier stuff later.
  15. Going through my wood pile with a loop and saw all these strange things on this peice, just the other day learned about shipworms on here and wondering if that's some of what I'm seeing? Curious about all the black things in holes and the part of wood sticking out that is covered in something.
  16. Not sure what to make of this, came from mix of Cretaceous and QAL, breaks very easily. Thinking it's sedimentary but then wouldn't it be harder?
  17. These came from creek with mix of QAL and QT, first set I'm thinking the bigger one is deer phalange, not sure about the smaller one. Next one I'm going with croc vert, threw in the antler wondering how to tell if it's fossil, does the burn test work with it as well? I'm not very good with bones so might be wrong, appreciate the help!
  18. Not sure if it matters where it came from but just in case, was in a mix of QAL and Eagle Ford. Thought it was bone when I picked it up but it felt funny like plastic and weighed nothing. Figured it would float but didn't, thought surely it would melt with flame but didn't, and no smell. I've shown it with piece of worn bone for comparison, but I'm still perplexed. What else could it be? Last picture is the bone.

    Shiny gold clam? What is this??

    Finally got around to my bucket of unwashed rocks and discovered this. Don't know what to make of it, it's either Cretaceous or from QAL. It was so pretty wet I put a flat clear coat on the top side to bring out contrasting colors, bottom and side are natural. Kinda looks bonyish or turtlish heck I don't know!

    Chert flake? Spoll? Scraper?

    Had this in with my rocks for tumbling, now that I'm looking at it again I'm thinking it may be something. It came from Alluvial gravels in creek where I've found other artifacts. Trying to learn to recognize when something has been worked, think this has, and the edge is quite sharp.
  21. This is the largest gastropod I've found and with intact aperture to boot. Is it larger version of the smaller ones? Is that a turritella next to it?

    Concretion or coprolite?

    Found in Eagle Ford creek, funky looking whatever it is. Because of the fine grains and indent on the end I started thinking maybe this wasn't just a concretion, but I'll leave it up to the experts.

    Indian artifact?

    Went down to the creek this morning to release some fingerling blue gill I raised and stumbled across this. Picked it up because I liked the unusual shape but then noticed one of the grooves looked altered, like it was rubbed or ground. Last year I found a Trinity sinker and Castorville arrowhead in same spot, so started researching artifacts and saw arrow shaft straighteners which this resembles. It doesn't look straight at first glance but a pencil fits in there perfectly. Coincidental and geological? Also found this neat peice of rock and wondering if it's flint? This area of creek is QAL

    Turtle coprolite?

    This is from mix of Eagle Ford and Alluvium, had it for awhile but just ran across pictures of turtle coprolite and thought it fit, right size, shape and colors I've seen. Also weighs light. Knowing my luck it's geological but that's ok it's very interesting. I snuck in another one I suspect is coprolite

    Please confirm if these are corals

    All of these came from Alluvial gravels in creek close to Trinity river. Only one I'm confident about is first one, obviously coral, but is it recent and should it have been here? It feels and clinks like glass. Next one I'm not sure if it's geological or not, seems to have well defined tubes of some sort. Next one lacks detail, plant, borrows,coral? Last one I thought was shell but looking at the rest of it not so sure, looks like it had a center with the tubes surrounding it, coral? rugose? Oh and second one is same size as last one.
