What a find!!!

Fossil Bones Southern Texas
by: Douglas


It looks like bones to me. Assuming that your father found them near Sullivan, Tx and that they are fossilized, they would be from the Miocene, about 24 million years old. That is the age of the rocks near you.

You may be able to get help by:

The local rock shop would be a good place to start.

The local Gem, Mineral and rock club has members that will be knowledgeable about your find. Most clubs have websites with contact information.

The paleontology dept of the nearest college would be another place to find help.

The next best thing is to post pictures where fossil/rock collectors will be able to give you some feedback. Here are some fossil forums where you can do that:
