    Pebble Evolving.

    Hi, after a work related break in Wexford recently I found this item washed up on the beach. After lightly cleaning it and viewing it under a jewellers loupe, I realised that it appeared to have inscriptions on it. I thought I may be just willing oil t to be the case, but upon further investigation they are definitely man made carvings. It seems to be a fish/catfish possibly to the front, and inscriptions of what I can make out to be, a person, stick like figure, fish, a PI symbol as well as others. It is very intriguing and though I'd share in the hope other do too. Thanks.

    Pebble Evolving.

    Hi all my name is Richard, A.K.A "the fella with the pebble"! Not sure if I posted on this or another forum, but wherever it was I received some replies and then the thread got closed because to whomever that decided, decided I had, had my answer..... Sound! I found a pebble over a year ago on a beach in Wexford. I just saw all the variations of pebbles on the beach and thought... I'm gonna have a look at them there pebbles. Sorted. I collected a load, and one stood out when I got back and cleaned them. So a year on I have had giggles, looks and ridicule fo
  3. Taxonomy according Fossilworks.org. Diagnosis according to Blot 1978, p. 146: "Tête contenue un peu moins de six fois dans la longueur totale. Hauteur du corps contenue de quinze à dix-neuf fois dans la même longueur. Les deux branches de cleithra de longueurs équivalentes. Côtes ventrales présentes. Osselets intermusculaires bien développés. Caudale constituée par neuf rayons s'articulant sur les hypuraux. Coefficient de concentration de la nageoire dorsale: 2,50, celui de l'anale étant aux environs de 2,85." This translates: “Head contained a little less than six time

    Need help with identifying fish vert

    Hello, I found this along an eroded wall where a prehistoric occupation layer was present along the Lavaca River in Jackson county, Texas. This section of river feeds directly into Lavaca Bay. Hoping this might be a vertebra belonging to an eel, there are few accounts of early people eating eels. Appreciate the help!
  5. I've always loved living fossils, especially the fish. They are relics of an age long lost, offering us a glimpse of an incredible prehistoric world. Some are enigmas that survived countless extinction events since the Devonian. Others are majestic predators that swam alongside the dinosaurs. Let me present my collection of living fossil fishes from the Mesozoic and before. I will begin with one of the most famous of all - the coelacanth Coelacanth Species: Whiteia woodwardi Age: 252.3 - 251.3 mya | early Triassic Formation: Diego Basin; Middle Sakamena Formation

    Snake Head Fossil?

    I found this on a beach in Northeast Massachusetts. The area was volcanic at one point in time. This appears to be the head that was a little squashed.

  8. Ok it looks like a prety geological creation, but then there is this (photo 3) is it just a shell mold, or could it be some breathing organ thing, coz it is placed lower. And this (photo 4) that is on the highest of the 3 peaks that are formed and sort of reminds me of a mouth with teeth. Found near akrotiri, ayios ermoyenis - curium area cliffs. Its 25cm long and the center 17cm high, it looks like hmm some sort of triple fin, or fish or exploding angry eel ... something that belongs to the sea anyway some more photos next post

    This rock has raised shapes on it. Look like worms or eels to me. Any ideas?

    Paranguilla tigrina (AGASSIZ, 1839)

    The entire, abundantly fossiliferous formation consists of 19 meters of limestone, all of which contains fossils, but interspersed in which are the lagerstätten layers that contain the highly preserved specimens. Within these layers, the fish and other specimens are so highly preserved that soft tissue preservation can is observable and even the skin color pattern can sometimes be determined. Taxonomy from Fossilworks.org. References: Blot, J. (1976) Les anguilliformes fossiles du Monte Bolca. 2e Congres Europeen des Ichtyologistes Europeens, Paris, 1976, Revue Trav. Inst. Pech.
