  1. Another hundred or so prestine hemiaster and heteraster echinoids, some foldy and rough shape oxytropidoceras of various sizes, and my first complete engonoceras ammonite. I almost forgot the hamite. I like the cylindrical shapes of the gastropods, too. Not bad for 1.5 hours on a cold day. South Tarrant County, Texas.
  2. I went to an “easy walking” spot to enact my own play called The Rockcracker while my daughter went to see The Nutcracker. This Goodland formation spot is a guaranteed echinoid grab every time. I have a bunch of flawless hemiaster whitei echinoids and a small number of heterasters, plus perhaps the smallest ammonite I have and a few nice gastropods.

    Oxytropidoceras ammonites

    I sold or donated most of my smaller oxytropidoceras but I kept a handful of 12-15 inch specimens that I found in Benbrook TX and far south along the Tarrant/Johnson county border. They’ve all been washed with soap and water but no other prep has yet occurred. Front/back pics included for most. I hear these take a lot of time to prep..looking forward to getting one cleaned up completely! One smaller one is very orange, it’s a tanning booth variant, and the other small one (not very obvious) is full of crystals..it’s the only one I’ve found full of crystals. It’s rough on the outside. Tempting to grind it down to reveal the inside. Not for now..big ones from kiamichi, smaller ones from tarrant(?) formation or whichever formation has all of the tiny echinoids and brachiopods all over. Pardon my ignorance. I’ll edit once confirmed.
  4. I went to a spot in southern Tarrant County TX that I’ve visited 10x before, my biggest eopachydiscus ammonites come from this spot. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the rain we had a couple of weeks ago was enough to uncover so many new fossils that I barely made it away from the starting point of my journey. Oxytropidoceras ammonites almost on top of each other and every few feet from that point. Very exciting for me! This recent rain is the first rain I’ve ever had that was heavy enough to “revive” a previously hunted spot of mine, given that I only halfway knew what I was doing since about May, and it didn’t rain in Texas since then..I ran out of time and had to leave a bunch behind, but I’ll be back.

    Great weekend in Glen Rose

    I went to my first show in Glen Rose over the weekend. I met some great people and had a good time! I managed to only buy 2 fossils….LOL! I sold everything I didn’t want to keep from my entry year to collecting halfway through the show, which amounted to a lot..I will miss some of the big eopachydiscus (19 incher was sold) but I have bigger ones I kept at home..also sold one of my nice oxytropidoceras but have 3 big ones at home. I’m ready to replenish my empty bedroom with new fossils! I was also really proud to see how well Mercer Brugler cleaned up the mortoniceras he got from me that I originally found this summer, if you saw them when I gave them to him you wouldn’t recognize the fossils..very motivating to learn how to clean them like he does.

    New member- DFW Texas

    Hi everyone, I have been interested in reptiles since I was a kid, particularly finding them in the field and photographing them. Mostly catch and release. This led me to fossils coincidentally, but I really only became very interested in fossils near the end of 2022. So I have a collection built from my hikes in the last 10 months or so. I also joined the DPS (dallas paleo society) a few days ago. I’ve attached a few finds from yesterday: a shoe clam from a construction site and a couple of oxytropidoceras from a local spot near my current home in Burleson TX. I also have a small collection of various echinoids and nautilus, plus countless ammonites, including some I’ve learned aren’t that common. Looking forward to learning and seeing what everyone is finding!

    My Son Loves Ammonites!

    So we went down to the park this evening that is two blocks away. Same park as my post called 'soccer for you, fossils for me.' The two youngest boys and I went to the playground, but the 10 year old went to do his thing. After about 15 minutes, he came to report that he thought he "found another full ammonite." We find so many broken chunks of oxytropidoceras in the central Texas marl, but occasionally, a complete one can be found. This time, I was prepared with a multi-purpose tool, so I went to work. We were able to carve it out fairly well, and on the previous advice of forum members, we decided to extract this time. It did end up breaking into 6 manageable pieces, but we'll work on putting them back together tomorrow. We love this hobby!
  9. When our town turned a local field into a park, they had to dig a reservoir-type area to deal with neighborhood drainage and occasional flooding. We live in a very fossil friendly area, and my 10 year old has the 'bug,' so when his brother has soccer practice at this park, he's off to drainage ditch. On Sunday, he dragged me down there to see his new fossil gold mine. Now, I must admit, that in our "Walnut Formation" in the central Texas Lower Cretaceous, we find a lot of ammonite chunks (oxytropidoceras), but we've not found a whole one. Until Sunday. We saw a portion that, though cracked, looked like it might have more to it, hiding in the rocks and mud. But we didn't have any tools with us. So at tonight's soccer practice, it was on like Donkey Kong. We left it in place due to it's fragile state, but this is what we found. We had a lot of fun and really enjoyed digging this out a bit.
