Found in April 2024, after land clearing, septic dig. Central Texas at approximately 960 ft elevation. Thoughts?

Definitely no skulls pictured.  :(

 

Wait for some locals to weigh in.
Probably something without a backbone, though.

 

What county was this found in? That may let us figure out the stratigraphy, and age of the sediments we are dealing with.

How many pieces are we looking at here. I see a mess of things that are marginally recognizable. I think there is rudist material in the mix.

This is from Medina County. 1 rock/fossil with images showing the different sides/angles.

It's possible that the skull like shape is ammonite shell and the rest mixed fragments that happened to fill the shell upon deposition.

100 percent rudist in limestone. You are seeing where some of the internal chambers of these weird bivalves fossilized. The first one looks like it's probably a Toucasia.
