pterosaur bones (perhaps Dorygnathus)
 

belemniten

This is probably one of my best find so far from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden.

Its a plate with some pterosaur bones, which is very rare in Holzmaden as these are marine desposits. The bigger bone might be a Humerus. Before I was able to find this piece I only found a few isolated pterosaur bones. Hopefully I can find a complete one one day :D

The prep of this specimen took about 5 hours. Before the prep it was visible that these are pterosaur bones so I was very surprised ...

Too bad there wasn't more near of this one.

That's an awesome piece, Sebastian! Remarkable to have so many pterosaur bones lie in close proximity to one another. And that from the Kromer quarry! Wow! I still have a long way to go in that quarry to find something as exceptional as this! :notworthy: Beautiful prep-work too! ;)
