I was just in the north sulphur river in Texas and found this. I have never seen anything like it, but I am also new to fossil hunting. And I Found it hiding on a sand bar. I hope the pictures are acceptable. Thanks yall.

It is an edge fragment from a segment of an ammonoid.  The frilled edge represents the sutured margin.

What you found is a part of an ammonite, part of a filled chamber of the "phragmokon"

nice one

Given where it was found and the phosphatic preservation, I would suspect this is a Baculites sp. Phosphatic sections of Baculites litter the red zone of the Ozan Formation (where these black fossils come from) on the North Sulphur and vastly outnumber "normal" ammonites there.
