Here's a couple Big snail things found in Georgetown. There was a bunch in a pile but these were the best. All of these fossils were found by flo-town digging with backhoes. He downsized and gave me these.
We call this the alien head.
Here's the back
This is my favorite. There were maybe adozen of these round things in a pod together but these were stuck together and have always puzzled me. Any help would be great thanks.
Thanks for the help, flotown finds this stuff from time to time and if he has a few more I can talk him out of I will let you know. He was telling me about a real nice nautilus with all kinds of bumps and ridges on it he found one day. A guy at work ripped it off from him. Here is one I am going to try and salvage. Gotta knock the rock off but I think there is a nice one in there.
That dumbell a tough one, hard to imagine a creature with an outline like that. Finding original shell on fossils in this part of Tx is always a challenge..the minerals were just not good for replacement.
IF you were to dumb luck onto a Nautiloid with original shell, it might be a big surprise as to how VERY THIN the shell is for such a large overall creature..
CAUTION ... fossil collecting addiction takes up a huge amount more display and storeage space
