  1. Hello, I think this is a fossil as it seems heavy and old looking. I found it in Chiswick England by the River Thames. Google lens search of the bone brought me to this site and comes up with a being a deer Bone from Pleistocene Period. Can anyone tell by the pics if this is a fossil, what bone it is, and what period it is from if it is in fact a fossil. Am I correct or even close? Thank you in advance for your help.

    Adam's Early / Lower Devonian

    The Devonian period is known as "The Age of Fish", but could also be known as "The Age of Brachiopods." In the Early / Lower Devonian, brachiopods reached the height of their diversity towards its end in the Emsian. We see the ancestral groups occurring, lingulids, craniids, orthids, protorthids, pentamerids, rhynchonellids and strophomenids, as well as the later successful groups we have seen before such as atrypids, athyrids and orthotetids, plus the rise of spiriferids, spiriferinids and productids and the beginning of the terebratulids. By the end of the Devonian , several of these g
  3. Found this in abbey wood with a bunch of fossil shark teeth and shells. Wondering if it was a tooth connected to a bit of bone? thank you for reading

    hi i found this today in northumberland in carboniferous rock. could this be a trilobite?
  5. Apologies for the usual hiatus from here. I’m back (just like arni always says). The past 6 months have been an absolute rollercoaster of collecting and prepping. I thought I’d ease you all into one of my best finds this year. Here in Yorkshire, we have an incredible layer of fossils from what’s known as the jet rock (Whitby jet too). In this layer, we get what are known as cannonball nodules. Usually always heavily coated in a pyrite skin, and 1 in around 15 has a fossil inside. Almost always, Eleganticeras Elegantulum. This is one I found around 6 months ago. The Eleganticeras keel
  6. I found this stone while hiking along clay cliffs in the Jurassic Coast England after heavy rain. Hoping to confirm if it is indeed a fossil or just an unusual looking stone.

    My Pliosaurus bone

    Here is my Pliosaurus macromerus cut bone. Species: Pliosaurus macromerus Synonyms: Strétosaurus , Pliosaurus rossicus Fossil age: 180 million years (Lower Jurassic) Location: Port Mulgrave, North Whitby, England Formation: Upper Lias Fossil size: 3,7'' x 1,9'' If you think there are errors in my information please let me know.

    Can anyone help me identify this fossil

    The center looks porous in texture, with a harder much darker outside edge.
  9. I know this pliosaur tooth has been discussed early in another post, but here are more pictures with true colour (I guess) provided by the seller. The true locality of this tooth remains unknown although the seller claimed it was from Oxford Clay Formation, England. Does this tooth belong to Liopleurodon Ferox or Cretaceous pliosaur?
  10. It's common knowledge that Smilodon has been mistakenly called the "saber-toothed tiger", yet it and other machairodontines were not closely related to the tiger or other members of the felid subfamily Pantherinae. However, Smilodon was the not the first saber-toothed cat to be bestowed the epithet "saber-toothed tiger". In a poem about Pleistocene mammals found in England, British poet Thomas Miller refers to the European machairodontine Homotherium latidens as a "saber-toothed tiger", in which case people in Europe and America had yet to literally use the term "saber-tooth tiger" for the Smi

    Eparietites denotatus?

    A lovely and today rare ammonit from northeastern england, found near Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire. Unpolished this ammonites (found in an iron limestone) are a little bit ugly..., but after polishing they are fantastic! This has around 20 cm
  12. 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?
  13. 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?
  14. 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
  16. 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:
  17. 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

    i understand that most of these are likely bivalves (?) but i am wondering the age of them or any more info anyone has on them? found in north east uk (north yorkshire). i applied beeswax to the shells exposed so they’re easily seen

    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
  20. 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
  21. 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?
  23. 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

  25. hi, i went walking in the north east of england and found this, it looked to be a fish jaw? i’m new to fossil collecting and finding as a hobby and i could be completely wrong but if anyone knows anything could you let me know? thanks it was found in a beck/stream, not directly on a coastline. could this be a fish jaw? or small animal jaw?
