Quick Trip

I got about an hour of free time the other day and had to check a spot of mine.  We have had a ton of rain in the past week, and I just knew something was there to find.  I didnt find much, but I found one tooth that made my stop worth it.  I believe its an Scapanorhynchus Raphiodon.  I know alot of you have "the collectors guide to Fossil sharks....of Tx"  Thats where I got my ID from.  I found a few nice Ptychodus, and a nice whole C.Mantelli.  I also found something that I have never seen before.  I thought it maybe a piece of wood, but it looks more like a piece of a tusk, or horn.  I'll let you guys look for yourself.  Oh, and another piece of something in the matrix, not sure if its bone or wood.
