Springtime comes to the Cretaceous

With the weather and the water finally warming it seems that spring is finally here. I was able to get out for some rare mid-week fossiling this week, so I returned to my familiar Cretaceous locale to hopefully pick up another mosasaur tooth or maybe a nice 2" goblin tooth before I begin collecting back at the Miocene streams that produced so well for me last summer. The stream was a little high from all the rain early in the week but it was nice to see that things had been churned up a little bit. It was also nice to finally see and meet other collectors on the stream and be able to share stories and information - its always great to chew the fossil fat. Even though I didn’t score any mosasaur or 2" goblin shark teeth, I did manage to come up with some nice finds including my first Xiphactinus tooth (partial and beat up) and a really nice Enchodus tooth that needs to have some matrix removed. There were also the usual Cretolamna, Archaeolamna and crow shark teeth which I also managed to get several nice examples of.

A couple of ammonite pieces.
It felt like every other screen had an Enchodus tooth in it. The item to the right is a jaw fragment.
