  1. Our fossil shed is finally done, with the last work of the carpenter to install a door and the last bits of insulation. So now it is time to clean up the place and reorganise a little. This weekend I took a selection of my best material out from the Lompret quarry in Belgium and started to reorganise it. Most of it are Gephuroceratidea goniatites like Manticoceras sp. And Crickites sp. , but also some Oncoceridea, Orthocones, crinoids, placoderm and more. I’ll be taking more pictures this week when I keep on filling the cabinets. pics on both sides from the 1st

    What is this?

    I found this one together with some bivalves. Its an area where you can find fossils from the emsian era. Any ideas on what it is? Found it in Thanville, Belgium. Already a little known place for searching fossils from the devonian epoch.
  3. I got some marine mammal teeth from Kallo (near Antwerp) Belgium. I've tried to identify these, but find it difficult. Who knows more about this and wants to help me on my way? Squares in centimeters! I think the first three teeth are Delphinodon dividum (True 1912). Clear serrations and striking ''teardrop-shaped tooth crown''
  4. Hello to everybody! I'm kinda new here, but before I start I must say I really love this forum! It has really great vibes and you instantly can tell that this is a good and friendly community! So, I am ziggycardon, I live in Belgium, close to the border of the Netherlands and when we start speaking geologically, I live on the same cretaceous sediments as where the first major Mosasaurus discoveries where done! Unfortunatly I have never been on a fossil hunt myself and everything currently in my collection was bought or given to me. But I hope to change that soon, as I am dyi

    Orthocone prep

    Appart from the ususal goniaties that I find in my favorite hunting spot, I do find some other cephalopods there from time to time. Last trip I found a realy nice orthocone. the fossil shell is 18cm long. I used a combination of mechanical ( airscribe ) and chemical ( potassium hydroxide ) prepparation. pictures as found, during prep and after prep:
  6. Hi everyone! Im looking for some Nice quality megalodon teeth. I don't mind the location I've got a permafrost complete rare mammoth molar for offer. As wel as a rare collection of belgian megalodon teeth

    Need help identifying this fossil

    Can't figure out what tooth this is, a student of mine brought it in my classroom. She found it at the beach in Belgium. Somebody who can help me out?
  8. It has been a while since I’ve posted some goniatites. The expansion of the quarry where I look for them is nearing to the end, and most of the good layers are gone. but sometimes we still find some neat specimens. this one was found a month ago. I used potassium hydroxide for the prepp of this one. The chemical reaction worked realy well on this specimen. Manticoceras sp. Late Devonian, Frasnian Belgium.

    Shark and ray teeth from Belgium - ID help

    Hello everyone, I found these shark and ray teeth on the seashore between Knokke and Het Zwin, in Belgium. Could someone help me to identify them? Thank you in advance.

    Backlog fossil prep

    The last few fieldtrips didn’t deliver a lot of fossils, so now I got time to get started at my backlog of fossil preps from the Lompret quarry. I still have well over 100kg of material to sort and to prep from there. Last weekend while rummaging through a few of those boxes I picked up one that got my interest. A Fragment of a large nodule with a part of a nicely sized Gephuroceratid poking out. After a good look, there were a couple of other fossil fragments visible in there, sadly the matrix was extremely hard. I had to use a grinder and hammer and chisel to get through it, t
  11. Last weekend we went on a field trip with the geology club of Ghent to a quarry in Southern Belgium that we hadn't visited before. The deposits in the quarry were mostly Givetian and Eifelian, but only the Givetian layers were exposed. The rock was a massive limestone, whit from time to time some fossil remains from reef builders. but most of it was impossible to extract. So at the end of the day we had nothing to show for. The only notable finds were calcite cristals, but we gave those away since we don't collect minerals. You can't score every time , Still a fun field tr
  12. Hi everyone! Last saturday we went on a fossil hunting trip with the BVP to Hotton in the Belgian Ardennes. https://www.paleontica.org/locations/fossil/667 There were 2 different locations planned for the day, the first was the "Carrière de Marenne" quarry in Hotton were we spent most of the day. It was my first time at this location, so I didn't have very high expectations but we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of the finds which made for a very productive and succesfull trip! Unfortunately like so often I forgot to make pictures inside th
  13. It has been a while since I’ve prepped a good Manticoceras goniatite. I still have a few lying around, but there was one from a box from a recent field trip that I really wanted to clean up. The specimen was partially sticking out of a massive piece of limestone and it already showed some really nice suture lines. So yesterday I finally tackled it starting with the grinder, then chisel and hammer and the details with the air scribe. I did make a mistake with the grinder by getting to close to the fossil and scratch the surface in one spot, but in the end after app
  14. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in trading his/her mosasaurus jaw or partial from a site (Either United States or somewhere in Europe). I've got various amount of eurasian pleistoceen stuff, some dinosaurus teeth. Megalodon teeth of great quality too. Please if you know anyone, feel free to contact me!

    Middle Devonian cephalopod prep.

    Last weekend we made a fieldtrip with the “CGH” ( Cercle geologique du Hainaut ) to the quarry “La Couvinoise” , the quarry happens to be in Couvin :p Here the deposits are middle Devonian: Eifelian and Givetian, so a bit older than the locations we usually prospect. The best part for the fossils are the Eifelian deposits, but sadly those layers are no longer in exploitation. However, due to the drought and the low water level we had access to a small but promising scree pile. Here we found a fragmented nautiloid, but the centre of the specimen seemed to be still in the matrix.

    holiday goniatite hunt.

    During our holiday in the ardennes we made a compulsory stop at our favorite hunting spot for devonian cephalopods. There has been a lot of new activity in the quarry, but sadly not in the best deposits for fossils. They are also starting to fill the older spots with ground. But the usual exposures were still delivering some goniatites from time to time. And we dit get quite a good haul this time. There was one notabely well preserved Manticoceras sp. and as a bonus we had a rare nautiloid. I cleaned up a couple of the goniatites with chemical prep; the result was spectacul
  17. Hi everyone! I have just returned from a fieldschool to Poland which was organized by the BVP (Belgium Society for Paleontology) in association with the Universities of Opole and Gdansk. The fieldschool started on the 9th july and ended on july 17. The first 2-3 days of the trip took place in the historic city of Gdansk which lies by the Baltic Sea where the main focus was on Baltic Amber. This included lectures, workshops, a small museum tour and some trips to the beach in search for amber. For the 2nd part of the trip we travelled to the south towards Opole and more s
  18. On the last few fieldtrips to the quarry in Southern Belgium where we look for goniatites we found quite a few plant remains in some of the anoxic marine deposits. A friend of mine thought that one of these remains could be Protocalamites sp. , but we find verry little info about that plant. Does anyone know when they first occurred? The layer where we found the remains were from the Late Devonian: Frasnian – Matagne formation ( Upper rhenana conodont Zone ) Any comparison pictures or papers on this subject are welcome.
  19. My son and I found these interesting looking stones in our backyard while digging a hole for a pond, We found them at a depth of approx. 50 cm closely to each other. Are these bones? Location is Belgium (north)
  20. I am sharing this poster on the temporary free acces exhibition about the fossils and minerals found in the Lompret quarry in Belgium. A large variety of Frasnian fossils are displayed ( Placoderms, Cephalopods, Trilobites, crinoids, brachiopods,…) most of them from private collections. https://www.museedumarbre.com/en/magma-3/

    Coral from Belgium

    Hi, I found this coral fossil in the middle Devonian of Belgium around Tellin. It kinda looks like a Hexagonaria but I'm not sure. It's around 6 centimeters wide.
  23. Hi all, I am looking for Megalodon partial teeth and/or fragments from the Netherlands and/or Belgium. Trade is possible. Kind regards, Ruben

    ring-shaped structure

    Hi everyone, I have found a weird looking ring-shaped structure in middle Devonian to Late Devonian rocks. It is hard to describe it, but it looks a bit like a intersection of a tree (of course that isn't possible because threes weren't around in the devonian). It is 10 by 7 cm. It was found near Han-Sur-Lesse, Belgium.
  25. Recently I went to an abandoned quarry in Resteigne, Belgium. I've found some brachiopod fossils and corals. Sorry for the bad picture quality. Thanks to @Manticocerasman for suggesting the location. some brachiopods corals and other stuff
