Here are my finds from my latest visit to Post Oak Creek. The first few pictures are of the shark teeth. Items 4-7 im assuming are part of a Mosasaur vertebrate? Items 8 and 9 are some type of mammal tooth. Not sure if it is modern or not. Finally item 10 is  picture of what im assuming are modern mammal teeth.

Great haul!  Esp those tiny teeth!!  I am curious about the little round blue item.  Is it natural or man-made (an old marble, maybe)?

Just a marble. I see several have found them there but this was my first.

Item number 4 is definitely a mosasaur vertebra, probably caudal (from the tail) as I have one of a similar size that looks almost the same from the North Sulphur River. And you are correct about Item 8 being a mammal tooth, it's a broken fragment of a horse tooth - there's a good chance it's Pleistocene. Although there's a lot that's missing I'm fairly certain that just by looking at the design on the occlusal surface that it's part of a lower molar. They always seem to break apart after being carried in the flowing water for a long time the easiest since they're so much thinner than the upper teeth.

Thank you very much with the Ids. I am excited to find my first Mosasaur vert in over 10 years. The only other one I found was at the North Sulphur River in 2008. Right now my obsession is with the Ptychodus teeth.
