  1. Hi everyone! Recently I have purchased this item. But when I received I saw that the two leg laying in upper layer of the matrix. (Picture below) So is this original fossil or this is fake one? Thank you!

    Need help to identify what this is

    Found in Germany, sadly i don´t know if i found it where i live, in Hamm NRW, germany or while i was visting either the north or east sea (Nordsee/Ostsee). Had it since I was a small child and was always fascinated by it but couldnt find out, what it is. Because I have it in my possession for about 15 years, i cant really tell much more about location or anthing else, just that it looks like an egg to me, but that might be what I want it to be. its about 6x3x2,5cm big, one side is almost flat with some dark spots and a crack i think going through it. the other side looks like an egg, but
  3. Ahoi, I got myself some ichthysaur paddle bones. They are from the Lias Epsilon of Altdorf, Germany. Can someone tell me a species? @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon perhaps? Stenopterygius? I plan to try and shape a paddle from clay with imprints to hold the fossils loosely in place. That will be for the paleo-recreation section then, but first I have to know what shape of paddle to make. Best Regards, J

    Is this Gomphotherium?

    Hello everyone, I have been offered this tooth by one guy. He said this is Gomphotherium. Because I don't have any knowledge about this so can you help me to identify the tooth is actually Gomphotherium or not (I know that there are some ancient elephant from Germany also). Is this a suitable price to get this piece? Thanks for your help!

  6. My Jurassic Park now heads across the pond to England and Germany. Dinosaur material from these countries is not common like North America and in fact very difficult to obtain. Theropod material is extremely rare and most remains are fragments. Most of my material from England comes from the coast of two areas The Isle of Wight and East Sussex. Material from these area comprises the Wealden Super Group (Hasting+Wealden+Weld Clay) and is early Cretaceous from the Valanginian to Barremian Stage (140-125mya). Yellow - Hasting Group , Green - Weald Clay Red - Wealden Grouip

  8. After my visit last week (http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/86063-my-little-trip-to-solnhofen/) This time I was at the visitor quarry in Solnhofen. It was very hard work and it was too hot but the finds arent too bad Its a pity that I couldnt find a fish but nevertheless I found some interesting things! Two pictures of the quarry: A beautiful 4 cm long Laevaptychus: A cuttlefish remain: with nice details (6 cm long): And my finds of the day: Two teeth Teeth a

    Some bones from Mistelgau

    Recently I visited a clay pit near Mistelgau in Bavaria. It's a kinda famous quarry because of the "belemnite battle field". Huge plates with hundreds/thousands belemnites come from there. But you can also findother fossils like ammonites and also bones. I already was there a few times and I mainly found ammonites and of course belemnites. But this time I also found some bones in the area of the Belemnite battle field. They were just laying therebut it was kinda difficult to find them because they are round, Belemnites are round etc. so I more or less crawled through the quarry
  10. Hello all, Last Saturday our geology club went on a field trip to the Breckweg limestone quarry in Rheine, Germany. Although my main interest lies with minerals, I found a nice fossil. I have been trying to identify it, but unfortunately without any succes. I hope you can help me out. According to the information I received, the limestone found at the quarry is from the Cenomanian. Thanks in advance!

    A Few More Shark Teeth

    I visited my favorite shark tooth site just north of the Lake of Constance again recently and just wanted to show off a few finds. If anyone notices that I've made any mistakes with my ids then please let me know. Araloselachus cuspidatus The next two I would call Carcharodon (Cosmopolotidus) hastalis, although I know that some still lump these under Isurus. Carcharhinus priscus And the next two I've identified as Odontaspis molassica.

  17. Hello! So I found these three fossils and was curious to know about them... one i think is to be a bryozoan branch the tooth i believe to be a cow tooth not sure how old it may be and the last one is a type of small brachiopod its super tiny but again I don't know much about fossils yet but I am ready to learn more ! So if any one knows anything about these fossils that'd be a great help! First 6 pictures are from the riverbed and the last two are from the beach in Lübeck,Germany Thanks!
  18. Hello dear fellow forum members, I just encountered an offer that made me stop. the Information above is all the seller has, except for the weight of the bone (around 120 g) What do you think this could be? Thanks, J

    This is a 2 cm/0.8 inch Nothosaurus tooth, from Triassic Germany. A nice tooth with good size for the genus. This is my first fossil from this family and my second fossil from the Triassic period.

  21. Hello everyone, this summer I'll spend a month in Germany for an internship project and in the weekends I'm planning to explore the region and collect fossils as much as possible. I'll be based near Frankfurt. Due mostly to the language barrier I couldn't find many info about fossil hunting spots easily accesible or open to the public. Therefore I'm looking for your help here. Do you know any such place? I think that as long as it is a couple hours drive from Frankfurt, I can make it . I read about the quarry in Eckelsheim, but I understand that it currently closed to fossil h
  22. Good morning, Next month I am going to travel to Bonn/Cologne and Berlin. Could you inform me of some good physical fossils stores in these three cities? Do you know of any good online stores in Germany? Best regards. Alvaro.

    Germany builds a T-Rex for the US

    I just stumbled upon this news and find it kind of weird, that a german museum puts together an original T-Rex for someone from the USA. Does anyone have any information on this specimen? why not give it to an US Museum? Too expensive maybe? I mean shipping it to Germany and back to the USA wont be cheap. CLICK Article is only in German, but Google Translate does the job. (in the picture, the T-Rex that is standing here in front of the bones is Rocky, the Museums own original T-Rex) Here is a tour through the muse
