It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Cornelius, I've found it both ways on the internet...including in relatively scholarly articles.   It seems Seldom's spelling appears to be the preferred spelling in the United States.  (not saying it's right, just that it's the most common)

Masosaurus was the skeleton of a reptile found in the caves of the cement processors in the south of the province of Maastricht  . Masosaurus got its name from  Maastricht and the river Maas .  With regards  Cornelius

Cornelius, you are 100 per cent correct about where the first one was found and the fact that it is named after the river.  Unfortunately the world scientific community uses the LATIN version river's name, Mosa, rather than the Dutch Maas or the French Meuse. 

Either way, I'm glad it is not a creature that I have to worry about tangling with.

It looks as if Seldom has been there done that on just about every subject.
As for the spelling, who cares?
Now if you are spelling cat, there is a word everone should know.

The North Sulphur river has been producing these vertebrae for many years.
I myself still have a few that my wife and I picked up many years ago.  I have sold a lot of them at the Fossilmania shows over the years. I even found an articulated group of vertebrae in the red beds where it outcropped. It took me about 6 hours to dig out the spinal grouping but took me only 15 minutes at the Fossil show to sell it.
A chain of 8 vertebrae was sold to a gentleman from Indiana. I won't mention the price I got for it but I can say we replaced our Central Air conditioner with the money we got.

Since the 80's the pickins got really slim. The boney material and shark teeth have diminished considerably since then. The Dallas Paleo Society have field trips there from time to time and some locals near Pecan Gap and Ladonia keep it picked clean.
Now days if you go there on a good weekend you may find a piece of boney material and a shark tooth or two but not much else.
The arrowhead pickins and Ice Age mega Fauna bones can be found there as well, if you are lucky enough to beat the locals to it.
