Hello, recently went on a trip to highcliffe beach/Barton on Sea (both have same formations and stretch of beach). I found 11 water-worn shark teeth from the shingle which are attached (I can post more of specific ones if needed) and lots of gastropods directly from the Barton clay, pictures will follow tomorrow if those. The formation is 40M years old. I have some rough ideas for what they may be but need some help Going from left to right starting on the first row: 1&2 I believe to be sand tiger shark of some sort. 3,4,5 and 6 I thought could be Carcharodon Auric
I mean the fossil is frozen, not the frog. 40 million year old frog fossil found on the Antarctic Peninsula shows Antarctica was warm enough for frogs at that time. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.sciencenews.org/article/first-frog-fossil-antarctica-found-ancient-climate/amp
