  1. On November 27 of this year my mother and I went hunting in a new housing development exposing the Austin Chalk in North Texas. The first and only site that we got to was covered in this rock that has been brought in from somewhere else. It was odd in that it looked like someone had just poured a bunch of it in an empty lot in no particular pattern. It was all next to a man made hole in the ground in the middle of the lot, but I don't see how that could be related. We have seen bags of this matrix in drainage ditches before and had also seen it variously thrown about at different Austin Chalk
  2. I had about an hour and a half to go hunt for fossils today. Someone had been asking to go hunting with me and today was the only time I’d be free to go until after New Years. There has been a lot of construction on highway 75 in McKinney, TX and they took a lot of the rock dug up during construction and dumped it in a field by 75 just north of the county courthouse on the east side of 75. I had seen the piles of construction rock several times and wanted to check out what fossils might be in the McKinney underground. I doubted there would be much of interest, because it’s th
  3. Our class found these along the creek walls that border the school's property. They look like large petrified wood chips, but we are wondering if you can tell us what they might be. Part of the schools property is considered preserved wetlands. This might be a reason these are here.
  4. I found this rock a few years ago and have been wondering about the fossils in it ever since. At first I thought that they where some kind of fish remains, but upon further inspection I am beginning to think that they may be bits of either pterosaur or bird bone. But I really don't know. This rock was found in North Texas in the Upper Coniacian stage of the Austin Chalk Formation. The member of this formation in which I found these fossils is extremely scarce in any vertebrate fossils, with most of the them coming from a more blue/gray toned member of the Austin Chalk which I be

    Fossils & Artifacts

    Not many fossils on this hunt but plenty of artifacts. Did manage to find one good size mosasaur vert and one pristine shark tooth. I ran into a mother hog and her babies, numerous other herds of hogs, snakes and more spiders than you can count. I also sunk in mud & water up to my chest and I'm 6ft 4 lol. North Texas creek hunt.
  8. Ok, I hope this is a fossil, or something other than a rock. I'm not going to guess as to what I think it looks like, I will just go on the photos since I have no idea what it is. Thank you for your help. Location: Ladonia Fossil Park, North Sulphur River Crustaceous Period fossils, from what I have read Weight: 11.56 OZ
  9. I found this at the Ladonia fossil Park, Texas, in the Sulphur River, it looks like it might be a fish in this rock towards the top but I'm not sure. I believe all findings in this water or from the Cretaceous Period. Thank you for looking and any help identifying. Laura

    Hash Concretion

    This is from a Formation in the Eagle Ford Group of Denton County, Texas. It's only 2" X 1½" but it has a lot of fossils in that small space. I will do or get done a little more prep to make sure there isn't anything else in there but I'll keep it all attached. I think the brownish-red matrix is sandstone and it's pretty thick so I think it will hold together fine. Very little was showing when I found it. The close-ups are clockwise to the center.

    Not sure what this is ???

    Found the following yesterday while out gathering some gravel in Post Oak Creek. I know its not million of years old but it looks quite a bit older than I am. Any idea what this may be? Thanks in advance David
  13. Hello! We went fossil hunting in North Texas about a month ago and found these oddly shaped rocks. Two of the three really have me scratching my head and wondering if we found something cool or just oddly shaped. Found in a shale creek bed, where paleontologists recently found a really neat fish specimen from the Cretaceous period (skull and vertebrae). We also found several ammonites and concretions (crab). they were fairly easy to pull up out of the changing creek bed, found while hunting for concretions and turning over large bits of shale and rock. I w
  14. Any idea if this is bone or shell? What might this be? Any help is very much appreciated. About 3/4" square. Thanks!
  15. Hey everyone...been a while since I've been on here. I'm taking my son and about twelve other 8 year old Cub Scouts to Eisenhower state park this weekend and wanted to know if there's anything to find out there. I was there about two years ago and the water level was so low there was a little island exposed with a ton of ammonites. Is there anything else to look for out there? If so, where? Thanks for the help, Mark
  16. Spent a couple of early morning hours on Post Oak Creek this morning trying to beat the heat. We had a little rain the other night so I figured I would give it a shot. Someone posted a couple of weeks ago about snakes but I can tell you I saw less than usual, zero to be exact. The bigger issue is finding access. The usual spot was grown over and the only option was to go down on your rear which doesn't bother me much but once I slid down the challenge was to find a way up the slippery clay but that was something to worry about later. There was an abundance of teeth. There were tons of small fo
  17. Found these while shark tooth hunting and wondering if someone can help me with an ID. These are from North Central Texas. Thank you in advance for any help.
  18. I live on some property in far north east Grayson county, Texas and runs alongside Iron ore creek. It that has several places on it where we have been finding clams and gastropods. It consists of heavy red clay mostly; with some grey, yellow, orange and a little black clay. Sandstone and Ironstone is very abundant. From what I have been able to find is this property is in the Woodbine formation. These clams have me stumped. Can anyone help me identify some of these beauties?

    Cretaceous Jelly Beans?

    Any ideas what these are? they look like jelly beans and are probably geologic but I have run across three of them as I shave searched through micro matrix from the eagle ford of both Texas. They are approximately 5mm. Thank you for any help.

    How to date mineralized bone

    Hi all. Me and hubby have been out on some exploring trips and we've come across several bones that are very dark. I want to say mineralized. They are not fossilized. Also I'm sure bovine in most cases, and maybe bison? Also, recently came across a deer skull cap and partial antlers. The area we have found some of these pieces are in a creek in Grayson county Texas (Choctaw creek) that consist of heavy red clay, grey marl and sand. I don't know even where to start on dating non fossilized bones, other than the good ole' it's darker so older method. I can understand that simply it being expos
  21. Hello all. My buddy and I went to the NSR and Post Oak Creek this weekend. I was hoping someone could help me identify a couple of finds. The first is one was found on the bed of the NSR. It appears to be bone, but it is very heavy (perhaps from soaking up all the grey clay since it was embedded in the bed). The second was found at Post Oak Creek and appears to be bone, kind of like a finger type bone (digit). We also found some nice teeth and nice baculite. This is my first post about my finds, so any help would be much appreciated. I was also wondering if anyone could provide some advice on
  22. Hey guys and gals. My hubby and me have been tromping around in Post Oak Creek (Sherman, Grayson Co. Tx.) and he came upon this tooth... I for the life of me can't figure this one out. Is it just part of a shark tooth?

    Beginners Luck

    Would love to tell a lie on how I found this Ammo.... something fancy like "I research some places to visit and it paid"... But theres no sexy story here... I bought some stuff, went to pick it up and was coming back home to Houston around 4:30 pm when going thru Mansfield in SouthEast Tarrant County saw that, were they are expanding the highway, they were a bunch of rocks in the typical "lightish brown look alike" rocks where I´ve found gastros before in Central TX... Nothing to lose since there was plenty of sunlight left..... Decided to do a stop and 5 minutes later I found this:
