  1. After nine months, I finally made it back to the Ellis County creek where I've found so many teeth. This is an Eagle Ford outcrop. The water level was much higher than I expected. It wasn't quite up to the matrix that holds most of the fossils, but high enough to make wading across the creek dicey, plus I didn't get to hunt most of the sand bars. This is the biggest fish vert I've ever found. Most of the fish verts I've found in this creek aren't in very good condition either, but this one is in really nice shape. As usual for this creek, most of the Ptychodus te
  2. I'm a newbie who lives in the Austin area with a lot of passion for ancient life, but I'm having trouble making a decisive start with with my searches. I have a particular interest in large western interior seaway predators, most notably xiphactinus, but also the mosasaurs and sharks that lived in the area as well. Finding a vertebrae, of perhaps even teeth from these groups would be absolutely wonderful, but of the few creeks in the Austin area I've scouted, I've been able to turn up nothing besides gastropods. This is still despite heavily studying the sometimes confusing Texas geological ma
  3. Hey guys, I just posted a video where I find some huge verts from an Ichthyosaur (towards the end of the video) They're the biggest articulated backbones that i've found!
  4. Part Two of my Post Oak Creek matrix finds. A fossil friend sent me 5 gallon bags of gravel and I have been slowing making my way through (one and a half bags done so far!) and here are some of my best finds. The previous post (Part 1) were all teeth - shark and sawfish and fish etc... This post is ALL THE OTHER STUFF. Here is a link to the first post in case you want to see the TEETH. My favorites- Crab Claws! Two sides of two claws - Size 1/4 inch More claws and maybe a fragment of carapace? Size: Claws - 1/8 inch and fragment 1 inch

    Peace River visit

    Back to the River for another adventure. Luckily I am just an hour away on a nice straight route with little traffic. As I started out yesterday there was a really bad fog layer causing visibility to be extremely limited. I had the fog lights and low beams on in the jeep and kept the speed down to 10 mph below the speed limit. I have been hit by deer and have seen several on the trip in the past. Didn't want to risk a wild life encounter enroute to the river. After getting about half way there the fog lifted and I was back to normal visibility until I got to Rte 17 when I drove into anoth

    Plesiosaur verts?

    Please offer any comments as to the ID of this piece. It was acquired years ago from Poland; but it was reportedly quarried at a Cretaceous site, Goulmima, Morocco. The matrix proved to be far too hard for the low powered tools I utilize for prep; so the piece languished in the garage for years. Finally it was shipped to Kris in Tx. Below is the account of his prep travail. As stated, it was labeled "Plesiosaurus, Cretaceous, Goulmima, Morocco." Any conformation or condemnation will be appreciated. I have real trouble visualizing the relationship between the appearance of the "front" and the "
  8. Had a big rain and a major windstorm (lost power a couple of hours), even though the wind was from the south (and I much prefer winter north winds for my beach) had to check. A bit disappointing, tooth-wise although I did find a mako and a big shrimp coprolite burrow, and five small teeth (and some old pottery shards). Tried the creek at an old spot, where I hadn't had much recent luck, but the rain had deposited teeth in one spot and weakened the bank in another where I dug around and found some teeth but mostly bone bits and a few interesting steinkerns (with some glossy surfaces, one

    rapp creek hunting

    Went out and played in the mud while still relatively warm. Quiet, not much wildlife activity. Lots of broken stuff. Hit an old spot, hoping for cowshark teeth, but didn't find any. Did get two angel shark teeth and a bunch of drum teeth. Several vertebrae, mostly broken. Found another skate stinger piece. Less sand tiger spikes than usual. One of the triangular teeth (sort of in-between a spike and a triangle, the pale one just above the stinger was unusual in that it was three times as thick and heavy as similar sized gray shark teeth blades, possibly thicker than the biggest tria
  10. There have been a few minor rain storms moving through the north Texas area lately, seems like it is always Friday afternoon or night. I have tried to go out and hunt a few days following these events, not expecting much, but you never know. Yesterday I hit one of my favorite creeks on the North Sulphur River and hit a jackpot for vertebrae and miscellaneous bone fossils, even found an artifact or two. There were a total of 16 verts, a rib bone, fish stuff and odd pieces that who knows what? The last artifact broke my heart, you find many like this, can just imagine what the entire point w
  11. Had to get back to the Peace River today. Eight days since the last trip and I was getting anxious to get back to the spot where I found the partial tusk to see if i could find more. It was a warm day but overcast and windy, so the wetsuit was in order again to combat the water temp and the breeze. It made for a comfortable day of digging and I was able to spend 5 1/2 hours in the water. First check of the river bank when getting out of the kayak yielded a nice 3/4" Hemi getting the day off to a good start. I then worked my way back to the area where I found the piece of ivory tusk on my
  12. I've been looking for hesperornis fossils for a while, and recently, an acquaintance presented me with a challenge: He would send me a bag of broken up hesperornis verts for me to assemble. In return, I had to send him the biggest and best vert back. He also warned me it could be a real headache. I took the challenge. Lo and behold! I was presented with over 60 broken pieces, some of which were tiny and terribly fragmented (not shown in picture) Nonetheless, I googled for pictures of hesperornis verts and put what limited knowledge I had on fossil assembly

    Peace River Florida Verts

    Here are a couple of verts that I found very close to each other. I am not sure if they are from the same critter or not. I am not sure if they are fossil or recent, but if I had to guess, I would guess they are recent or Holocene. Any ideas what these are? Verts give me trouble - they are rarely what I think they are.

    rapp beach hunting

    Surprisingly with no north wind since my last visit, still managed to find a fair amount of teeth on the south Rapp beach. Sadly the bigger teeth were broken. One piece of burrow with callianassid coprolites, hadn't seen any in a while. Beautiful morning, light breeze, no bugs. Not a lot of debris on-shore at tide lines and shell-lines in the water with minimal. Guess there are plenty of pieces there as every trip down or up the beach would find a tooth or two in the incoming tide.

    My Aurora Pile

    Hey everyone! About 2 weeks ago, the VERY generous @AshHendrick gave a portion of his Aurora pile, straight from the mine! I put it around a wood frame in my yard, and have hunted it for hours almost every day. This will be an ongoing thread, I will prob not update every day, but at least weekly. This is the pile. It's bigger than it looks in this pic (about 5.5 x 5.5 feet [a little less than 2 meters i think]) What I do is I sift into the bucket, so I don't go through it twice. I dump it somewhere else. Day 1 Coral Fish vert

    Possibility of Getting Abelisauridae Fossils

    My favorite dinosaur is the Carnotaurus (hence the name) and I would love to have a fossil of one but I am aware that they are nearly impossible to come by. I was wondering if any of it’s relatives fossils are more common or easier to obtain. Thanks in advance!

    What are these verts?

    A while ago I acquired these verts but never knew what they were. I can also see the obvious peicing togeather on the right one, but I sill think it’s all the same bone- correct me if I’m wrong. They are from the Kem Kem Beds and about 2 inches long. I also have more pictures if needed. Thanks in advance!
  22. Please could someone advise me on the permission required to remove a fossil. At low tide on the North Yorkshire coast near Port Mulgrave I discovered 5 visible ribs and some verts exposed under seaweed. The fossil appears to be limited to this with no paddles or jaw etc but it is still my best find. The area to be removed is approximately 60cm by 50cm. It is located about 10 meters off shore and will be exposed again next week. I removed a rib in three parts and would be able to remove the whole plate with tools. Can anyone tell me whether I need permission to do this and if it would be ok t

    A couple of vertebrae

    Trying to identify 2 Verts from the Peace River, Florida. Initially I thought that the 1st vert was shark. It is unusual. Hopefully someone recognizes the big circular "hole"... The 2nd is beat up a little, maybe harder to identify
  24. So 2018 has been on a roller coaster of sorts. The east coast was hit with a prolonged cold snap to start the year which froze all the beaches up and most of the Chesapeake Bay too. So there was no hunting at all for the first week and a half of the year. The weather finally broke and i hit the beach i was luck enough to find a nice 2" meg/chub and the tripmaker was a pathological hubbell megalodon i was super stoked. Then the cold came back and once again the beaches froze right back up, so I was back off the beach again. The weather broke and all the ice went away and i hit the beach yesterd
