  1. This is a partial 'Megaloceros giganteus' jaw I recently bought, which I'd love to learn more about - but especially the following: 1. Is it actually from Megaloceros, or - indeed - another mammal? 2. Can we tell how mature the animal was when it died? 3. Is the jaw a composite at all? 4. How are such fossils prepared for sale after being found: i.e., I'm especially curious to learn about whether paint and/or glue are applied - and, if so, what would it have looked like before such preparation, upon its discovery?
  2. Hi! I found this very large and irregularly shaped flint nodule on the Thames foreshore, London. To me, it kind of looks like the branching arms of a sea sponge, but I have heard that flint nodules also sometimes filled the shape of animal burrows and other things. It has a number of holes/handles in it. What do you think it is?
  3. Hi, more fossils from my collection. The first two pictures are of a pyritized Ammonite from Buttenheim, Germany and is from the Jurassic. The next two are of a pyritized Ammonite from the Volga River, Russia and is Jurassic. The next picture is of Marston Marble. The second to last and the final is Beringiaphyllum cupanoides from the Fort Union Formation in Montana.

    New longirostrine pliosaur described from the Oxford Clay

    Hi all, Just came across the exciting news that a new pliosaur genus and species has been described from the Callovian stage of the Oxford Clay near Yarnton in Oxfordshire. Dubbed Eardasaurus powelli (Powel's Yarnton lizard), it's a longirostrine thalassophonean pliosaur that is slightly more derived than Peloneustes philarchus (with which it shares numerous anatomical features) and forms a sister taxon to "Pliosaurus", Simolestes, Liopleurodon, Pliosaurus and brachaucheninae. A feature of particular interest in the dentition of this new species is the presence of connecting carina
  5. I'm opening this new thread as in my "Fossil collection Part 1" came out from one of the pictures that I might have found and old broken clay pipe (found in a rock pool during a low tide) Is there anyone that can help me understand if this is effectively a pipe and how old this object could be? Thank you! Attached images:
  6. Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum >> My welcome This is my "fossils collection", some may be just stones some definitely fossils. I collected these during a low tide in the rock pools on Margate sands beach (Kent, England). I picked these up with my hands, no hammering or digging. Over time they presented a white patina on them, maybe calcium? I didn't clean them as it might help to recognize them (maybe a chemical reaction? not an expert so I preferred not to alter them) This is just part 1 of my collection, I will upload more in days to come. The pho

    echinocnchid brachiopod

    My son and I get a lot of clams from castleton, UK but I’ve never seen anything quite like this… any ID would be fantastic. thanks
  9. Hi - Found this on a walking path along with tens of Devil's Toenails. It seems quite sizeable and I was quite excited when I found it. It has a 'hard' appearance and an interesting dark brown bone-like colour in certain parts. Also, notice that there is a sort of curvature below the first layer. I feel like I want to rule out part of a very large ammonite because the substance seems quite bone like compared to the rather sandstone effect that I have seen on these large ammonites (which also usually don't have such defined edges). Due to the curvature underneath it looks like that wo
  10. Found on Brighton Beach in England. Salt Water, cold. The whole stone is about 8cm across and main circular shape has about 3cm diameter. It looks like it goes through the stone which is what was confusing me. Thanks

    Unidentified England Ammonites

    Anybody know what these are?
  12. I’ll start off my collection with the most common ammonite you can find on the Yorkshire coastline in England. Dactylioceras Commune Lower Jurassic, Upper Lias. Roughly 180myo You can find these ammonites in abundance in Whitby. No exaggerations when I say iv seen thousands over the years. You can find them in plenty of other locations all over Europe, though they’re most known as the Whitby Dac. Now, while they maybe common, size comes into play with mine. You’re usual dac, will probably be between 2-3 inches. If you’re lucky, you can get a 4 inch one, though

    Possible fossil? found in Devon, UK

    Hello all, I found an interesting looking rock while walking along a forest path in mid Devon, and think it could be a fossil of some kind. If someone could give me an idea of what this is, I would be grateful! Please let me know if you need additional photos/information. Apologies if it's just a rock.
  18. Hi, Found this bone over Christmas whilst on a beach walk on the south coast of England. Please could someone identify what animal it's from and what part of the body too? It's about 15cm long. Thanks, Steve

    Minster, Isle of Sheppey Oct 2021

    Hi guys Went over to Sheppey yesterday to see what I could find... I'm a total novice, so I tend to pick up anything with an interesting shape and/or texture. Found some pyritised wood/twigs, a bit of crab in a phosphatic nodule, a little gastropod and some very round seed pods. The following pics are of the ones I had trouble figuring out due to their shapes resembling other things. Any clues would be great! Thanks ONE I'd like to think it's some kind of pointy reptile scute, but from my browse online it's possibly a pyritised seed husk? 3rd pic shows the dep

    Is this a fossil?

    I do not know much about fossils or how to definitively identify one. I found this and it seems like some sort of ancient arthropod. I found it on a rock beach in southern England (Eastbourne). Any help identifying this would be appreciated.

    Animal Long Bone?

    Hi. So, I have a couple of pieces of animal bone that I cannot identify - I feel like I should know what they are but just can't quite put my finger on it. They were located in Lincolnshire, England, and I'm after the type of bone they are and possibly the animal - although large (cattle sized), medium (sheep sized) or small (rabbit sized) would also work for what I need them for. I will post each individual bone in a separate post to make it easier to identify. This one is approximately 122mm long. I think it's a long bone, but can't identify the actual bon
