    Ichthyosaur size calculation

    In my last couple of collecting trips I have found some larger than normal vertebra from the Australian ichthyosaur platyptergius australis. What I am after is some literature that may enable me to calculate the length of an ichthyosaur based on the vertebra size. I realise that the approximate body position the vertebrae will need to be a major part of the calculation. Previously the larger vertebrae I found were around 80 mm diameter x 25 mm thick and quite often vertebrae from infants were also found with these so I had assumed fully grown. The last couple of vertebra ha
  2. Not really sure Nodulised is even a word but I found it formed in a round nodule today, this is my first time cracking open one and finding a vert usually they have some part poking out. It was fresh from the cliff and had no indication on what was inside. A real nice surprise. Quite big and a nice split too. Comparison between a smaller recent vert.
  3. Hello, this is my first post Just wanted to share my most recent find from the Jurassic coast of Charmouth, Dorset UK. I found this pebble with what appeared to be bone, had it prepped and it has turned into an ichthyosaur paddle with ribs/gastralia and a couple ammonites! Best regards, Kam

    Ichthyosaur tooth

    From the album: Holzmaden

    A 1.6 cm long Ichthyosaur (perhaps Temnodontosaurus) tooth from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany). The prep work was kinda hard because the tooth broke into two pieces. Some more pictures:
  5. Thought you may be interested in this ichthyosaur vert i found. It’s the biggest one i’ve found. Really nice and chunky! Possibly from a Temnodontosaurus although they get even bigger from this species. This is from the Yorkshire coast. The vert compared to one of my other verts i thought was on the large side!
  6. Last Saturday I was in the quarry Kromer (Posidonia Shale, Lower Jurassic) for the first time of the year. Maybe some of you already noticed this topic: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/93302-prepping-a-plate-with-some-ichthyosaur-vertebrae/ Beside of this plate I also found some other cool things but firstly here is a picture of the quarry: You are allowed to search in the heaps on the left behind the white car. The material isn't that bad at the moment. I was there about 6 hours and I found about 6 teeth. I already prepped three Stenosau

    Ichthyosaur vertebra

    From the album: Holzmaden

    A 2.5 cm long Ichthyosaur vertebra from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic, Posidonia Shale). Here is a picture of the unprepped cross section: It took about 3 hours to prep this one. Some more pictures:
  8. In this thread I wanna share some fossils from Holzmaden, which I found partly years ago but prepped recently with my new tools. I will not show only bones but also belemnites and other fossils from Holzmaden. All the finds are from the quarry Kromer. Hopefully I will be able to extend this thread step by step! So for today I want to show three bones from the posidionia shale from Holzmaden. Firstly this 3 cm long Ichthyosaur vertebra. Here is a picture of the unprepped piece: As you can see there was only the cross section visible so it was a kinda ha

    Ichthyosaur humerus?

    I found these two rarther worn bones in the same spot afew weeks apart in Yorkshire. I’m thinking broken humerus and any suggestions on the other bone are welcome, guessing some other part of the paddle. Not sure if it looks right for the radius or ulna though. (humerus) bottom bit worn away and top where the other paddle hones go. Other bone of similar quality and condition.
  10. Revisited an Ophthalmosaurus (meaning “eye lizard” in Greek) icenicus ichthyosaur vertebra from my collection. And decided to apply a paraloid solution to complete the preparation of this find to help stabilise the RARE Secarodus polyprion hybodont shark tooth attached, which was possibly scavenging the animal at the time. Thought you would like to see it.

    Ichthyosaur paddle bone?

    Hello everyone! I recently picked this item up. It was labelled as a ichthyosaur vertebrae, however I just couldn’t shake the feeling it wasn’t. I purchased it and have done some comparing to my other specimens and looking through my textbooks. I’m thinking it could be a paddle digit. The way the lines of the bone sprawl out from the centre rather than the ring formation of some of my vertebrae. Of course I could be completely wrong but there’s always that thrill of the unknown. I’ve compared it to a partial paddle I have and a humerus I also have in some photos to give an idea. Ho

    Ichthyosaur ribs

    From the album: Holzmaden

    A stone with two ribs, a half vertebra and some rests of some belemnits from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic). All the bones are Ichthyosaur bones. The story of this one is kinda curious because on the stone was firstly only the damaged vertebra visible. But after a hit with my hammer I saw two cross sections, which belong to Ichthyosaur ribs: After some prep: And some pictures of the result: It was very tough to prep it because the stone is extremely hard and the separation la
  15. Recently you could find "many" bones and teeth in a "Bonebed" in a quarry near Buttenheim in Germany. Too bad I was a bit too late to search in this Bonebed. As I was there it was still possible to find something but the layer was buried under about 1 meter dirt. So I couldn't really find something there. All bones and teeth come from the Toarcian. This thread of @Kasia inspired me to buy some teeth and bones from there too. So thank you for the inspiration Here are my acquirements: I bought three Steneosaurus (crocodile) teeth: The first
  16. I'm finally done today with the prepjob of the associated Ichtiosaur verts I found in october near Wimereux in France. thanks to my honney who helped me. We even restored a 4th vertebra hidden under the matrix that was dammaged during the extraction of the fossil. As found: start of the prepp: Work in progress: adding the broken vertebra: the finnished fossil:

    Triassic Ichthyosaurus sp.

    From the album: Dinosaurs and Reptiles

    Ichthyosaurus sp. (?) ichthyosaur tooth. Many thanks to @nala for this and other awesome teeth!
  18. What do you reckon the man in the bowler hat is contemplating while standing on that Ichthyosaur's head (Couldn't find the image source though, can anyone help?).
  19. Last Friday and last Sunday I visited the quarry Mistelgau in Bavaria. Its since 2005 abandoned and a very beautiful geotop. But you can still find fossils there! It's possible to find various Jurassic fossils like ammonites, gastropodes, marine reptile bones .... I was mainly interested in finding some Ichthyosaur bones and all in all I was quite successful. Here is a picture of the quarry: Belemnits can be found everywhere ... I found 6 Ichthyosaur vertebrae and 5 paddle bones. The vertebrae: The two associated vertebr

    Lyme Regis Trip

    Firstly apologies for the lateness of this post, spent a week down in Lyme Regis from the 17th of December. Was out most evenings and some mornings due to the tide times, however i found hunting at night just as productive and with a lot less competition! The weather had been incredibly rough and was a bit unsettling at night when you could hear parts of the cliff falling down! The first few nights i mainly found ammonites and a few pieces of rolled bone (no photos of these, can put some up if anyone wishes me too) Best find was a parti

    Two Single Ichthyosaur paddle bones

    From the album: Yorkshire Ichthyosaur Fossils

    I found these single Ichthyosaur digits on separate hunts but from around the same location. I bet they're from the same beast judging by the size. One has a rib which looks super cool.
  22. From the album: Yorkshire Ichthyosaur Fossils

    3 articulated verts and a rib. There is another bit of bone at the bottom possibly a tiny bit of another vert.
