Common Sense Fossil Collecting
We live under the X

Throw a dart  in any direction while standing in the area of  this photo and you'll probably hit a spot that could be rich in Fossils from the Cretacious Period. While lakes and river beds are the most common spots to search, hill sides, road cuts and recently excavated areas often yield nice Fossil finds from the distant past. Sure... there are other fine areas to collect in but we just happen that live here. Check out what we have uncovered lately ! Email

Sulphur River Bed Near Ladonia, Texas



New Finds March 5, 2004!!

 lots of rain this week


A heavy rain drenched North Texas and was followed by nice Spring like weather for early March. We decided to head out and see if we could find river bed somewhere that would support us. It took awhile.(Quick sand is something to avoid if you can) When we did find a spot we discovered that we had left our mud shoes at the house... We thought,"Oh well, to hell with it... we're here ! " So on we went. We found some good things considering that everything looked the same covered in mud. Here is some of what we brought back. Laura found a cool Mosasaurus jaw bone with teeth !


Mosasaurus Bone


Mosasaurus was a big carnivorus sea lizard from about 65 million years ago. It grew to be over 55 feet long. The river bed was once under the ocean. We have 100's of bones and pieces from this one type of animal alone. Someday we're going to build our own Sea Monster! We also find Shark Teeth and other fossil mammal teeth from later periods.
We found these during our hunts in the Summer of 2003 ~ You can click the photos to enlarge them.
