  1. I begin the reconstruction of the biotope of Sansan in France (Gers). https://books.google.com.sv/books?id=7s8yAQAAMAAJ&printsec=frontcover&hl=fr&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false https://sciencepress.mnhn.fr/fr/collections/memoires-du-museum-national-d-histoire-naturelle/la-faune-miocene-de-sansan-et-son-environnement https://sciencepress.mnhn.fr/fr/collections/memoires-du-museum-national-d-histoire-naturelle/mammiferes-de-sansan https://www.mnhn.fr/fr/paleosite-de-sansan.
  2. I am struggling to find proper information on how to identify different brittlestar genuses, so if anyone has a good resource for that, that would be great as well! Found at place de la Crevasse near Equihen, when splitting open a fallen block of layered, clayey shale. Scale is in cm.

    Coral to ID

    Hi everybody, i need help to identification that coral from the Aquitanian of the Southwest of France. The whole coral is about 5,5 cm at the widest part.

    Coral or not coral ?

    I wondered what could be that little one (about 1 cm), i found last year in the Bathonian of Normandy. A coral, maybe a sponge ? I've took the best photos i could.

    Fossil or not?

    Hi guys, new here just found this whilst strolling by the river here in the south of France in the Tarn. Is it a fossil or just a weird stone? Tia.

    Ammonites - France

    I have just received these in the post. Didn’t come identified, but wasn’t expensive and took a chance that someone on the Forum might know what Ammonites they were. Info from seller : Callovian, St Laon, Deux Sevres, France
  9. Hi everyone, now that it is a prohibitive time for fossil hunting (at least where I am!) I though it was a good opportunity for a little throwback. This summer I travelled to southern France and I had the chance to visit museums, paleontological heritage sites and, of course, collect fossils. Towards the end of August I met with a friend and we headed to an area that was quite popular among professionals and amateur collectors alike, but we didn't know any exact location. We stopped at a place that looked promising and we asked the owner of the land permission to survey and,
  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.
  11. As I have been researching large ctenacanthiform sharks from North America, I've been wondering if there are any known globally that are currently unnamed. I definitely know of the large Ctenacanthiformes Saivodus stratus (found in both what is now North America and Great Britain), the large Ctenacanthiform from the Permian Kaibab formation in Arizona, and the 'Texas supershark' (a likely large species of Gilkmanius) from the Pennsylvanian Texas Graham formation (all three as larger or larger than an adult Great White Shark (Carcharodon carcharias)). But are there any large ctenac

    Recent Calliostoma

    By showing Sara my current shells, I realized that I have a different Calliostoma in my box of C. zizyphinum. It was found in the Côtes d'Armor in northern France. Its difference lies in the fact that some turns are more marked than on the C. zizyphinum. What do you think about that ? @MikeR? From the web : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calliostoma_zizyphinum#/media/File:Calliostoma_zizyphinum_f._laevigata_01.JPG Thanks. Coco

    Cambrian trilobites and creatures

    Hi, i've just used my first binocular yesterday and decided to take a look on the pieces of schist i had collected in La Maurerie, member of the Coulouma formation, Cambrian, Montagne Noire, France. I need help to find out what i saw on them. Firstly, i splitted a piece of schist in two yesterday and found those tiny rounded things that puzzle me a lot. The whole of them form a shape of a little less than a centimeter. I also found that partial cephalon of one centimeter (part and counterpart) and wondered if it was from a Solenopleuridae or Trinucleidae.

    A french theropod tooth

    A guy is selling this tooth, accordingly a theropod from France, found in Cherves-Richemont quarry, Cherves-de-Cognac. It measures 1,5 cm in length. The seller says it is "allosaurid". I've been looking a bit around for some similiar teeth from the area, as well as species, and I find it a bit hard to find some good articles or pictures to cover this, but from what I can make out of it at this point, it may either be Nuthetes, or perhaps a french Neovenator? I had read recently, that they had found teeth in France, resembling the holotype of Neovenator, so that would ma
  15. Hey folks. Just got home from a rock and fossil show in Hamburg, where I bought 2 strange little teeth from southern France, Lutethian age, from the Aumelas region. They were labelled as crocodile teeth. But when I saw them I noticed they were very unlike usual croc teeth. The one in best condition has small fine (and quite sharp) serrations, the crown curves slightly to the distal side, and it is laterally compressed. Aumelas just so happens to be the same region, in which Iberosuchus remains have been found from Lutethian beds. The teeth of Ib
  16. During our explorations in search of fossils, we obviously favor sedimentary rocks; I invite you to follow me with my wife in search of fossils… in volcanic rocks! (only observation without sampling) In the center of the volcanic massif of Cantal (central France), we explored a not very accessible valley where outcrop deposits of breccias of dense pyroclastic flows, in search of fossil woods of Villafranchian age (upper Pleistocene). According to an old reference (conference , 1969) one can find: “sometimes tree trunks inclined in all directions and sometimes branches. They are black
  17. Hi everyone! Last week we went on a weekend trip with our fossil club the BVP to go on a fossil hunt to the jurassic clay cliffs "Falaises de Vaches Noires" between Houlgate & Villers-Sur-Mer in Normandy, France. https://www.paleontica.org/locations/fossil/68 The famous cliffs of Vaches Noires date back to the Jurassic period, and span both the Callovian & Oxfordian stages (166 - 157 mya) and the Cretaceous period spanning the Cenomanian (100 - 94 mya). Back in the jurassic this area was a rich marine environment and fossils that can be found here are man
  18. Hello everyone, and welcome back to another trip report! Last week, me and my family went to France once again, but this time to northern France, near Cap Blanc Nez. Cap Blanc Nez is a well-known fossil-hunting site for its ammonites and other fossils. It is located quite near the coast of England, and if the weather's clear you can see the cliffs of Dover very clearly. Day 1: it's a start The first fossil trip was rather disappointing. We walked down the stairway to the beach and headed directly to Grand Blanc Nez, the main landmark in the area. We started search
  19. I went to visit the "fossillium" show this Weekend near Lille Northern France,a lot of Minerals ,few fossils :( ,crazy prices ,but a Northern France real chamane!
  20. Last weekend was an extended weekend and good weather forecast, that means a few field trips to the French coast for us The first trip was Friday, we got there early in the morning and planned to hunt the Turonian part of the coast. There was a lot of sand on the beaches so we didn’t find much, but quality is better than quantity and Natalie scored 2! Ptychodus teeth. I only found an ammonite that proved to be incomplete after extracting it :/ and a flint echinoid on the way back to the car. On Monday we tried our luck in the Cenomanian and Albian part of the site. Again lots o

    Short chalky trip

    Hi TFF, The other week I went for a quick trip to the beloved chalk at Cap Blanc-Nez in France. I heard that the gault clay (albian) was exposed, since that's my main interest I had to go and see. 'Sadly' it was layer P6 (late albian) which does not provide as much ammonites as earlier layers. In my experience this layer provides quite a lot of fish remains like teeth and small vertebra. Picked up a small lamniform shark tooth. Besides a lot of bivalves (inoceramus) and gasteropods (gyrodes gaultina) there was nothing but that tooth I took home. N
  23. A good weather to hunt in the cretaceous,few good echies and brachiopods
