My main interest is fossil fish, but you will also find some other vertebrates like amphibians, mammals, reptiles and birds here in this album:
Fossils from Solnhofen, Messel, Holzmaden, Liaoning, Bergisch Gladbach, Green River, Linton, Mazon Creek, Monte Bolca, Fiume Marecchia.....and other places around the world.
Most of what I read says that the Outer Banks of North Carolina are slim pickings for fossils. I disagree. The fossils out there are, by and large, not very old, but they look like that lived yesterday. In fact, it is impossible to tell some of the old shells from the fresh ones unless they are still attached to some matrix. Most of these were all found on Cape Hatteras, where modern shell collectors like to explore, but I've found things here and there on most of the beaches - sound side and surf side - that I have explored
Trace fossils, or Ichnofossils as they are also called, are quite fascinating, even though they may just be a by product for many collectors, since they don't always look as pleasing as most well-preserved fossils. Of course dinosaur tracks are really something special, but I haven't found any of those yet.

Some of my finds from the lower Jurassic of Holzmaden.
They were mostly found in the quarry Kromer near Ohmden ( http://www.schieferbruch-kromer.de/ ).
I have found different types of ammonites and belemnites but recently I focused more on vertebrate material.
Vertebrates are not very common but its not impossible to find teeth and bones.
I found most of the teeth in the "Schlacke", a layer with many fish parts.
The most common teeth are teeth from Steneosaurus bollensis (crocodile). You can also find Ichthyosaur and Plesiosaur teeth.
This album contains pictures of many of the fossils that I have collected at Bouldnor beach on the Isle of Wight across various trips in 2013, 2014 and 2017. These were all found straight off the shingle along the coastline and date to about 32 million years old (early Oligocene).
Pictures of fossils that I collected across 8 days of fossil hunting between the English coastal towns of Lyme Regis and Charmouth in late November 2013 and late December 2014. They date to about 190-195 million years old and consist of various marine reptile bones, ammonites and much more.
This album contains pictures of dinosaur and other reptile fossils that i collected along the stretch of coastline spanning from Compton Bay to Grange Chine, on the south west corner of the Isle of Wight, UK. These were collected on separate trips across 2013, 2015 and 2017.
These are fossil I've found in and around Kristianstad Basin, cretaceous period.
I'm uselsess in fossil ID so feel free to add any comment. I won't mind.
I've started to read papers about Kristianstad Basin, but haven't come across any documentation about sponges yet. I'm a slow paper reader, but I am surprised. These are big sponges. I will upload a few.
