Here are my finds from my latest POC visit. Made a decent haul with my best Ptychodus yet and my largest tooth so far here. The tooth was about 1.5 inches. I also found a small ptychodus with no root but it did have very defined grooves. Pictures 2 and 3 are the large Ptychodus and picture 4 is the 1.5 inch tooth. 5 and 6 are the small Ptychodus. Picture 7 is the creek wall matrix I was looking in for teeth and 8 and 9 are the actual teeth I found in the matrix. Does anyone know if this is original matrix? I was able to find several teeth sticking out but several of them were also just pieces of teeth, like you find on the gravel bars, and not complete intact teeth. I was hoping if they were from the original matrix the teeth would be complete. And Finally I have a game for you. See if you can find the tooth in picture 10. For some reason many of the teeth I found this trip were highly camouflaged haha. The rest of the pictures are just closeups. I initially thought I found some mosasaur material but the bone feels modern to me now that it is dry. I also found my first vertebrae this trip. Looking at the other posts it seems like verts and artifacts are pretty easy to find but I guess I just don't have the eye for them as I have only found this one vert and have never found an artifact. Enjoy.

Hi, first of all, great finds, the explanation of why the teeth in the creek wall are still eroded is because, to me at least, that looks like a lag deposit, where they have been eroded out of a bed and then redeposited, this is what big brook is to the best of my knowledge:)

Thanks for the information. That was what I was thinking. I am still searching for the elusive primary matrix here haha.

Awesome. I hope to have a ptychodus tooth myself some day.

Thanks. Just come to Texas. You cant miss them in some of our creeks.
