  1. Jurassic Coast ID please...

    Hi, first time fossil hunter here - so apologies in advance! Currently visiting the Isle of Wight Jurassic Coast and spent the day at the beach and have a couple of interesting finds - just not sure if what I found is actually anything more than just a pretty rock! So, this first one is about 11cm in length and had a sort of white slightly porous texture, with yellow brown markings. One marking has the texture of tiny bumps, whilst the other looks like smoother ridges. Can anyone please help?
  2. Hi again, I’ve just posted my first find, and here is another I would like help with please. Found on the Isle of Wight Jurassic coast, grey coloured rock around 8cm in length, with what looks like some fish bone type markings. On the reverse side of the same rock is a round light grey circle about 1cm across with a thin white circle surrounding it. Please can anyone help with more information... thanks!
  3. Could this be amber?

    I found this on Charmouth beach (west) UK, last week on the shoreline. It weighs 57 grams. It has a dark appearance but glows orange when backlit by bright light. Any identification ideas would be appreciated Thanks!
  4. Here is a video i just uploaded of some of my very recent finds from the Yorkshire Coast. These finds are all unprepared currently and in the video showed as found. They will be completed very soon and should come out lovely The best finds are the articulated string of verts, and very nice looking section of Ichthyosaur Paddle. Hopefully you enjoy.

  6. Weekends finds

    Hello all. Put in quite a few hours over the weekend in between fishing sessions. A few teeth but nothing amazing, even the locals are all struggling. Need a big storm to bring a bit more of the cliff down.
  7. Just got back from a trip to England - still fighting the jet lag a bit! 7 hours time difference makes for interesting sleep patterns! Thought y'all might want to see what I all I found in Great Britain! Of course, we started in London, doing all the London things, including the Natural History Museum! Got to see Mary Annings plesioarus and mosasaurs. And the archeoptyrix! And the dino room!! And much much much more.....whew. Left London to visit friends in Bury St. Edmund, near Cambridge. We went to see the Sutton Hoo burial near Ramsholt in Suffolk which I had heard of a fossil hunting spot there- didn't really get to look much because there was a boat burning at the docks.....so fire trucks and smoke and commotion. I found out later that the main hunting area was a 45 minute hike from the waterfront, so I kind of missed out. Wasn't really prepared to hike that far, with friends who aren't really into fossil hunting, so I contented myself with poking along the water front and found a couple of little things.... (not the shell, I found that embedded in the dirt at Framlingham Castle, not sure if it is a fossil or just a shell). I'm not really sure what any of them are, the bullet shape I was assuming was a cephalopod, but it might be a phragmocone and I really don't know what the little round one is, perhaps a vertebra? I didn't have a coin for scale, but the little round is 3/4 inch. Next on the fossil tour was Yaxley Hampton Vale lake near Petersborough. I had heard it was a good spot, if somewhat picked over, but I found it to be quite good! I didn't find any ammonites (which I was hoping for) or crinoids (although my friend who was driving found a HUGE crinoid stem - beginners luck, the rat). But found a nice sized belemnite, plus these those neat little white spicule things. I saw them ID'd somewhere a while back (sponges, I think) , but now I can't seem to find what they are called, so if you know, please let me know! A Swan at Yaxley: But the highlight of the trip was a guided tour around Weymouth, with the interesting and outspoken Adrian Davies! He picked us up and toured us all around Portland Island and Weymouth with info on the history of the town plus stops for fossil hunting! First stop was to a cobble beach with "roach stones"...what we in Texas call Rattlesnake Rock. My husband found a dolphin spine washed up (I really wanted to take some of the vertebra, but decided they might not let me back in the US)! You can see all the cobbles around the dolphin. My "roachstones" The view from Portland looking back toward Weymouth: And the best for last - my finds of ammonites (16 of which are pyrite!) , crinoids, belemnites, a phragmocone, a sponge and a bit of bone plus some other stuff: A few more pics of my finds: Me with my nose to the ground- it was a bit chilly and windy...and then I came home to the Texas heat.. And then a day later, I went to the Quarry at Midlothian on a 100 degree day. But that's another story.....
  8. Unknown Red Crag tooth

    Hello all, Found this yesterday at Bawdsey, Suffolk. From the red crag bed 3.3-2.5 MYA. Any ideas on what species it’s from? Never found one this “chunky”.
  9. found our first fossil but need help

    Hi all Very new to this but we found this in Suffolk England in a shallow valley under 1.5 meters of sand and flint in the top 200mm of a deep layer of grey clay with some chalk and flint in it. on its own
  10. second find

    We found this in a pond we have dug on the site of an old pond at the juncture between the clay infill and the undisturbed clay under the old pond. depth 1.75m. Heavy clay with flint and chalk in it location Suffolk on boulder clay in the bottom of a very shallow valley I thought it was man made as it was so detailed but my my son and friend think it is a fossil so here are the pictures against a ruler showing inches and centimeters
  11. saber tooth ?

    Hi we found this in the spoil heap from sand clay flint mix dug from on top of a thick layer of boulder clay at about 1.5m in a shallow valley in north suffolk about 12 miles inland it has a clockwise twist I am hoping it is a tiger tooth but am prepared to be disappointed
  12. second find from pond no.2

    Hi We have found a second item from a pond dig in chalky clay at about 1.75m seems similar to the last find but the material is much more soft and chalky to the touch any ideas would be very gratefully received Thanks in advance Brian
  13. Small but perfectly formed

    I live in Thanet, England - classic White Cliffs country, chalky and flinty. Found this amongst the gravel in my driveway, so may be local, might not. Centimetre rule, so about 3 cm by 2 cm by 2cm.
  14. Red Crag Croc or fish tooth?

    Hello all! Sorted through one of my sharks teeth tubs and this one caught my eye. From the Red Crag beds at Bawdsey, Suffolk, England. Size is 15mm long, rounded and has worn striations around the whole tooth. Am I correct in assuming that this is a small crocodile tooth? Any input would be gratefully appreciated.
  15. Help to identify please

    I found this years ago on a school trip on the Isle of Wight, the fossil hunter on our day out wanted to buy it off me, but being a kid I didn’t want to sell it, I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what it is? Also, if it’s worth anything? as he was keen to have it, many thanks, Hannah
  16. Suffolk Sharks Teeth Trip

    Hello all! Took the hounds down the local beach for a walk and thought I’d have a quick look for teeth as I was there. Sea was nice and rough with the wind coming off it pushing the waves against the cliff. Straight away I was finding lots of Isurus teeth on the tide line which had derived from the Red Crag. They often have lovely markings that look like white lightning and really are quiet pretty. Got one nice Carcharodon tooth at just under 50mm which is a nice size here. Few more bits n bobs and by that time the dogs were bored so we finished our walkies and went home! Thanks for reading!
  17. Meg or otodus

    All I was told is this tooth was from England, it looks like an otodus to me , which is most likely as they are a lot more common than English megs and it matches the colours of London clay also I can’t see any serrations
  18. Found in Ploughed field

    Found in ploughed field. In sand stone. Easily smashed off. Other shells pictured in stone. Really unsure what it is as live the furthest away from sea as anywhere can in UK....
  19. Monster ammonite prep

    Once again I slack in posting things on here. last week I decided to dig out a very large ammonite I found last year. It’s a Phylloceras Heterophyllum. Quite rare around here, and to get one as big as this is, is even rarer. It weighed an absolute tonne but worth it. All the prep work is done, all that’s left now is to rebuild some small sections and cracks. It’ll be a stunning piece once’s finished.
  20. Unknown stone found in my garden

    Hi, I just found this in my garden and I was wondering if it was a trace fossil/fossil of some kind? It's around 5cm in length and as you can see it is pockmarked on one side and relatively smooth on the other. Any insight would be great thanks.
  21. Still having fun with my Microscope camera.....giving me something to do to keep my mind off the "future". . I am finally getting around to photographing my finds from England. So many tiny ammonites from the Jurassic Coast! And crinoids and belemnites and a tiny gastropod! Plus a few little worm tubes from inland. I can't believe it took me this long to get around to taking photos of the littles! All the ammonites are around 1/2 inch. Tiny Pyraatized gastropod 1/4 Inch Isocrinus Crinoid segments : 1/4 Inch Belemnites: One Inch Worm Tubes :
  22. Iguanodon Humerus

    Iguanodon Humerus from the South Coast of England From this: To this: The humerus is about 16 inches long and is broken on the one end. Prep by me, stand by Friargate Forge.
  23. GREAT charmouth hunt

    Hi, everyone I had a great hunt at Charmouth today and found a couple of rarer remains. I found two articulated Ichthyosaurus vertebrae almost as soon as I walked onto the beach and later on another bone that is probably Ichthyosaurus as well. Seldom do I find any decent marine reptile remains, so this was a good trip for me.
  24. English Cliff Meg

    Hello all! Headed down the local beach after work, had a little look over the London Claybeds but nothing good was about. Headed up the beach to the red crag cliffs which have been collapsing a lot. Started looking over the slump piles at the bottom of the cliff picking up a few small teeth and bits of ray plate. Scrambled up the slump pile a little bit to the phosphate nodule bed and spotted this in the sand...oooo I thought, that looks interesting. Dug it out and with a bit of spit this soon appeared. Was only 74mm long but was in a lovely condition for a red crag tooth. Spent another ten minutes in the slumps but my hunger got the better of me and I headed home. Thanks for reading everyone!
  25. Quick Otodus Hunt

    Evening all! Had a quick trip down to the local beach after work. Was a massive tide today so a lot of the London Clay bed was exposed. Found a few smaller bits n bobs then got a lovely 62mm Otodus Obliquus, although a bit worn was still a nice tooth. After that found nothing else! Thanks for reading everyone!
