Found this recently in Del Rio, TX in shallow water at a recent mud & rock slide due to collapse of cliff.  It's about the size of an average man's fist.

Looks like an ammonite.  I'm sure someone can give a much closer ID as to genus

Welcome to the Forum. :) 

 

Could be a heteromorph ammonite.

Could also be a gastropod. :unsure:  Not sure.


Wait for a few more local opinions. 

Neat find.

Regards,

As mentioned, it is a partial heteromorph type ammonite.  Do a Forum search for Mariella

I agree this is an ammonite. Nice find jsharyn27.

Genus has been bounced around a bit but Mariella and Plesioturrilites are pretty much the same thing.

Nice!!! yes it's an ammonite.  I still have not found one like that here in Texas but they are around.  It could also be a Gastropod. but with some cleanup who knows

What park please?

Shoal creek, pease park between W24th street and W15th street.  Look in the light grey soft limestone.  Here's a picture of mine.
