  1. 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?
  2. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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!
  10. 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.
  13. 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.

    Fossil Xiphactinus?

    I know this isn't my find or my video, but I'm following this guy on the Youtube and he found Interesting fossil fish in North Texas Creek today. I'm thinking Xiphactinus or Enochodus? Video at 20:47 and 27:37

    Ammonite and shell ID please

    Found these in a tiny unnamed creek where it transitions from Woodbine to Eagle Ford, think I was still in Woodbine but not sure. Ammonite isn't in great shape but wondering if it's Calycoceras? Amongst the clams and gastropods in next one is a long peice of shell on the edge, doesn't look familiar and I'm not used to seeing any detail but should help someone ID it.

    Bison metatarsal?

    I didn't have much luck trying to ID a group of bones so thought I would try just one and maybe I can figure the rest out. It's from a creek that's all QAL not far from Trinity river. Passed the burn test, it's worn so makes it even harder for me, leaning toward bison. Would appreciate a definite ID!
  21. Lone Hunter

    Concretion or coprolite?

    Picked this up in creek that is mostly Eagle Ford but is downstream from where it cuts through QAL. Pretty sure it's a concretion but given it has a few inclusions want to make sure it's not coprolite, and yes I read the post on the subject but still left me unsure so best to leave it up to the experts!

    What's inside this oyster?

    This came from part of creek with Eagle Ford and QAL mix. I have no idea what I'm looking at other than it's not part of an oyster (some is). Thought it was ironstone but now not so sure. Has a couple of interesting little things and the obvious triangle shaped object which I'm really curious about. Thanks for looking and appreciate any input!

    Proximal phalanx?

    I'm horrible with bones so could be way off on this. Came from creek that's mostly QAL, it does not burn or smell and can't scratch it. Closest I could find is deer but they all look so similar! It has a reddish color, is that from staining?

    Mystery object on petrified wood

    While y'all are on the subject, wanted to get some opinions on this. I collect a lot of petrified wood, wouldn't even have picked this up if weren't for the odd thing on it. Could it be bark? It's strange how rounded off it is, and there are tiny white dots in it's trail on the slice it's on. Appears to have a pattern on it, maybe someone will recognize it as a specific type of tree.
