  1. Just spotted this on the beach, thinking it looks like ichthyosaur shoulder bone or something, don’t want to carry it if it’s just a lump of wood though. What are your thoughts? Already seen a rib in one boulder, a vert in another and collected a piece of possible jaw and another bone. Thanks for looking. IMG_1730.MOV

    Russian ichthyosaur tooth?

    Hey! I just bought a “ ichthyosaur tooth” from online. The teeth sold out really fast so i had to make a quick decision. It’s suppose to be from the Belgorod region. So my question you is, is this a ichthyosaur tooth?
  3. I have seen this for sale, however the seller states that they don’t know if it is real or a replica. I’m thinking it might be worth taking a risk on, but the air bubbles in the bottom are a red flag. It’s clearly another layer to the top so I suppose it could just be something added to the fossil to strengthen the piece. I’m also thinking that such a piece wouldn’t usually be worth making a replica of. What are your thoughts on this; worth the risk at a low price?

    Not sure if fossil?

    Hello! Indulged my hobby a little this weekend (4-7 Mar) and headed to Lyme Regis for some sunny ammonite hunting. Found this while digging on East Beach there… I’m nowhere near experienced enough to determine if it’s even a fossil at all, but it was such an odd shape and I thought I’d ask! About 1 3/8 inch (3.5cm) across and approx 1 inch (2.5cm) thick. Found 5 March 2022 on East Beach, Lyme Regis, Dorset, UK. See photos below for details. Thank you everyone!

    Jurassic Coast Fossils

    Hi all! I've been really busy creating all these watercolour illustrations based on fossils from the Jurassic Coast. Here we have an Ichthyosaur, a Plesiosaur, an Ammonite, a Scelidosaurus and a Belemnite. There will be a few more to come soon...

    Temnodontosaurus tooth?

    Hi all! I came across this tooth listed as temnodontosaurus. It's 4 cm long and comes from Lyme Regis. Can anyone here tell if it's temnodontosaurus? @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon

  9. 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
  10. Hi all! Here I describe how we sift for Late Jurassic fossils in Moscow Fili Park, in continuation of Fili Park evokes mixed feelings. In fact, now it is the main place for Jurassic fish and reptile teeth. Nowhere else in our Jurassic will you be able to say casually: "I'll go find some teeth", here it is possible. Even in Ulyanovsk, with all its skeletons and verts, teeth have to be searched for a very, very long time. For Muscovites, Fili Park is literally close at hand (for me, for example, it takes a little over half an hour to get there). In addition, Fili Park introduces hobb
  11. Hi, any thoughts on this, from Lyme Regis? It is sold as Plesiosaur, but does anyone know if that is accurrate or if it is ichthyosaur? Thanks
  12. Hi, I wanted to ask if this is an Ichthyosaur tooth? or whether it could be Pliosaur instead? it comes from Cambridgeshire in the UK and is 5.7cm in length. The seller listed it as an Ichthyosaur tooth, but to me it looks more Pliosaur due to the striations, size and how robust the tooth looks. I'm hoping I can get some confirmation about what it could belong to. Thanks!

    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
  14. Hi all! In continuation of the previous reports. Less text, more pics Bits of scenery:
  15. Sometime ago, I acquired an ichthyosaur skull that was poorly prepped. It had been roughly grinded and had lost much of its surface details. This is unlike the Holzmaden-style ichthyosaurs that were professionally prepped from the beginning, resulting in a beautiful fossil with scleral eye rings and full teeth etc. It's the reason collectors get unprepped Keichousaurus and send them to professional preppers, with the resultant Keichousaurus being more detailed than the ones you see from the Chinese market. This guy here is as flat as a pancake and so it would take delicate work to

    Is Ichthyosaurus a Plesiosaur?

    Hello, I have a simple question but I can't find the answer and I think many of you probably know the answer. Is the taxon Ichthyosauria a part of the taxon Plesiosauria? I want to start learning more about Ichthyosauria and this fact simply bothers me not to know.

    Ichthyosaur vertebra?

    Hi. I'm currently on holiday in Lyme Regis, Dorset, England and I have found this vertebrae on the beech. It's maybe 1.5cm in diameter. I believe it to be ichteosaur but I was wondering if anyone could clarify? Also, it appears to be missing a portion, would this likely have occurred pre or post fossilisation?
  19. Hi all, First off, this is not my fossil (though I own a large crow of similar morphology), but one I recently bumped into and found particularly curious. Why? Because it's morphology seems to contradict itself. Described as a Polyptychodon interuptus (no longer considered a valid genus; Madzia [2016]) from the Late Jurassic Volga Beds (?) of Stary Oskol, the tooth appears to have enamel folds consistent with what one might expect from an ophthalmosaurid ichthyosaur, such as Platypterygius sp.. The root, however, is smooth and round, with a hollow base, which, unlike the rectangula
  20. Hi everyone I came across this box of marine reptile teeth from: Age 200 million/Rhaetic bone bed. I don't have the measurements of the fossils unfortunately, but do anyone see plesiosaur and ichthyosaur teeth here? I'd love it if there's pliosaur but probably not..
  21. I've spent a fair amount of time now combing the beaches around Lyme Regis and Charmouth in Dorset, England, and thought i would put together a topic that presents all of my marine reptile bone finds (so far) in one place. The fossils here are Early Jurassic in age, approx. 195-190 million years old and come predominantly from the Blue Lias and Charmouth Mudstone formations. I first visited this area in 2013 with the simple goal of finding at least one ichthyosaur vertebra, and now after three subsequent trips in 2014, 2017 and 2019, i've put together a far better assortment of finds than i co

    Plesiosaur or pliosaur?

    Hi everyone I came across these teeth on our favorite site. It's listed as plesiosaur and ichthyosaur, but could the plesiosaur be a pliosaur tooth? The ridges are quite pronounced.. The teeth in this set were both found in the Seversk Sandstone in Belgorod, Kursk, Russia
