  4. A week ago my friend Diego (@fossilesdecapblancnez) sent me a message that he'd found a big lewesiceras peramplum (lower turonian, grand blanc nez formation). This is the ammonite in situ. He decided to leave it alone and come back with me a week later to extract it and carry it of the beach since it's huge. So that makes it yesterday. He arrived a bit early after high tide but luckily the ammonite was still there as the site is frequently collected. As you can see the pebbles moved quite a lot in a weeks time. It's good and bad, lots of erosion but a
  5. Hi, I’m newer to collecting fossils and I was just wondering if these two brittlestar fossils are real or not. The information I have on them are as follows: Ophioderma elegans,from the Jurassic; Calovian of La haute vault, Ardeche, France.

    Late Jurassic field trip

    This time on our field trip we tried the late jurassic deposits of the northern french coast. those spots are a bit harder to prospect, but from time to time you can find vertebraten material there. This time we found quite a few Hybodont remains, 2 realy nice teeth and a spine. we also found a little piece of marine reptile bone and fish scales.
  10. So I bought this end point of a supposed deinotherium tusk from a man in France a while back. Before I purchased I asked how he knew it was deinotherium and not mammoth etc. he gave me an explanation in poor english I didn't quite understand and then said he got it from a palaeontologist in France who's name he quoted (I checked, real palaeontologist). I've attached some pics. What do you think? It's definitely very old ivory of some kind. Thoughts? It's a little over 3 inches long.

  12. I've enjoyed many trip reports that @Manticocerasman made about the chalk cliffs at Cap Blanc-Nez that I decided to make one myself. A big tide, warm sunny weather and the summer season approaching... I only like one of those 3, a big tide The goal was to visit the albian gault layers if they were visible, but they were covered with sand. I've collected some of cenomanian fauna already thus I decided to visit the turonian boulders. Hunting in the turonian is not easy, it can be hours before you see something and everything has odd shapes that could be something. Th

  15. Good morning, afternoon or evening. Last weekend I purchased an Ammonite at a gem and mineral show in Conroe, Texas. The seller indicated that it was from France, but had no other information. Could anyone help me ID the ammonite from the attached pictures? I'm thinking that it's something like Harpoceras sp. but that's a Google pictures guess. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Daniel

    Enchodus Jaw

    Last weekend we have been to the coast of France to look for fossils in the chalk. We found the usual ammonites, but I also saw some fish remains sticking out of a boulder. At first I thought to leave it since it looked very brittle. Natalie convinced me to take my time to try to extract it. She put some paraloid on it in the field and I removed the fossil with a knife. At home she consolidated the matrix and prepped the piece. She sure was right to take the fossil home , it turned out to be a really nice Enchodus Jaw. (moral of the story, always listen to the missus

    Ammonite bite mark?

    Hello, I have bought this ammonite, only knowing that it is from Montreuil-Bellay, France. To me it looks like Perisphinctes virguloides, but I am not sure, any ideas? After examining it nearly, I noticed a hole, that looks to perfect to have been made. What do you think about it? Ruler is in cm. Thanks!

    Zigzagceratinae ?

    Hi everybody, i need help to identify that Oxfordian Perisphinctidae i found yesterday in a quarry of Charente, South-West of France. I think it could be a Zigzagceratinae indosphinctes, but that's only a supposition. I also thought it could be a choffatia, but i don't know if they can be that big (an important part of it is lacking) as you can see on the second pic with my friend's hand as scale. The scale on the first pic is in inches. Thank you for your help.

  23. Hello, is it possible to know the exact species of this echinocorys? It was found by me a few years ago in France, in Normandy in the Cretaceous cliffs of the Pays de Caux. its size seems huge to me! I have never seen one of this size cm: 9 X 8.5 X 8.3 inches: 3.54 X 3.34 X 3.26 Thank you in advance for your comments
