Possible fossil found in Grayson County

SHERMAN TX--A strange discovery yesterday afternoon has a group of Sherman residents looking for a dinosaur expert.

"We need an archeologist down here to tell us what this thing is,” said Ed Vaught.

Vaught says he made the discovery while he was walking along a creek bed Tuesday afternoon, near his property between Sherman and Tom Bean, with a friend and his friend’s 12 year old son. The boy noticed what looked like large bones jutting out from the creek wall. Vaught says recent rains caused a part of the creek bank to erode, exposing the object.

Today, other suspected bones were found a few yards away. The Texas Historical Society was contacted, but no word yet on when an expert will be able to study the find.

    My son found a fossil 3 years ago! Luckily the school he goes to knew some people that could tell us what it was....pretty exciting.

    Looks like a large marine vertebrate from the Upper Cretaceous period. Cool. Call Austin or Grayson county college geology departments. they would probably come out and look at it.

    Not the first one to be found in the County. One was recovered and donated to OU a few years ago in Denison.
