Fossil Hunting In Midland, Texas


Recommended Posts

  • New Members

I have an oil field in Odessa/Midland, Texas, and I have found dry riverbeds and found sedimentary rocks. I don't know if there is something I'm missing or there is just nothing here. Also the riverbeds are natural. Or how deep to dig.

Not all sedimentary beds have fossils in them. Some do but only sparingly, so you need a lot of excavation/loose rock to search thru. Also knowing what to look for.. Sometimes the most interesting things are the easiest to overlook.

Can you show us some pics? I'm sure other Texas members will know more to help you.
