  1. Iguanodon Bone?

    Hey everyone, I just purchased this Iguanodon Bone and I was wondering if the ID was correct or even if it is dinosaur bone. Apparently it was found in the Wealden Clay in the Isle of Wight, UK. The front side has been polished, unlike the back side. Thanks!
  2. Hi, I found a small fragment of what I think may be dinosaur bone on the Isle of Wight. It was on Gurnard beach on the north of the island. The island is famous for dinosaur fossils, with 20 different species being found on the south beaches. The fragment is roughly 20mm square. One side is half-covered in what looks like reptile skin and the other side has lots of streaks across it. Hopefully photos will help. Thanks.
  3. Isle of Wight jaw?

    My nephew spotted this down at Compton bay on the Isle of Wight. Sorry about the poor photos. The area is early Cretaceous wealden. The fossil is about 1.5-2cm long. Not sure what it could be but hoping it could be some sort of jaw. If anyone has any suggestions it would be most appreciated. Many thanks.
  4. Yarmouth fossil in clay

    I recently went to the Isle of Wight and when I was hunting at Yarmouth beach, I found this on the foreshore amongst the pebbles. The imprint is about 1cm long. Any help you can give would be much appreciated.
  5. planning ahead for a trip in the UK

    Natalie and I are planning our holiday to the UK, We are planning to reside from saturday 20 july to 24 july on the isle of Wight were we went last year. And from the 25th until the 28th we are planning to do either the coast of Sussex or Dorset. This is where the advise of the TFF members come in, what would you advise us to visit, either Dorset or Sussex. Of course if any member is free on one of those dates and is willing to guide us around this would be even better. We also take a bunch of Belgian fossils along for possible trades. (we are especially interested in cephalopods and marine reptiles/dinosaurs ) Cheers Kevin and Natalie
  6. What ptychodus species is this ):

    This is from the Isle of Wight I’m not sure on the age because it is from an old collection with no catalogues Is this mammilaris or marginaris the tooth is roughly 1cmx0.9cm
  7. Isle of Wight Fossils

    Hi all, I found this concretion when I was fossil hunting in Yaverland, Isle of Wight. It appears to have a tooth and bone fragments in it. I was wondering if anyone could help identify what these fossils may have belonged to. Many thanks in advance!
  8. Fossil hunting Isle Of Wight

    Today I went to Compton Bay, Isle of wight. By the time I got there I only had an hour before a storm stopped me. I found a large 23cm section of fossilised wood with some pyrite covering it.
  9. Isle of Wight dinosaur bone ID

    Hi, I just saw this vertebra online and decided to buy it, as I have wanted an Isle of Wight fossil for a very long time now. The vertebra was listed as an Iguanodon tail vertebra and it was found in The Wealden Clays, Wessex Formation, The Wealden Group, Chilton Chine, Isle of Wight, UK (130 million years old, Cretaceous) Overall Size = 5.1 cm (2 inches) long by 5.1 cm (2 inches) wide by 8.2 cm (3.25 inches) high. I know there are a few very knowledgeable people on this forum when it comes to ID'ing dinosaur bones, so my question is: is the ID correct on this bone? Is it truly Iguanodontid (Mantellisaurus or Iguanodon) or is it from another of the many dinosaurs that can be found on the Isle of Wight? Or should I just label it as Dinosaur vertebra? Thank you in advance!
  10. Isle of Wight bone

    So I found this rolled bone yesterday when wet it’s more noticeable but Their is a groove running along the bone. It has slight curvature. Is it diagnostic of anything to identify what this may have once been?
  11. Isle of Wight Bone

    Hi Can anyone help in iding this bone. Its from Brook Bay, Isle of Wight. Lower Cretaceous. thanks Nick
  12. @TXV24 With two freshwater turtles known from the Hamstead Beds at Bouldnor on the Isle of Wight. The trionychid turtle Trionyx and the testudinoid turtle Emys as far as I’m aware. My best educated guess due to the location of the find and abundance of turtle material to be found with the right conditions at Bouldnor would be turtle. Are you familiar with turtle anatomy and recognise such a bone.
  13. Cretaceous bivalve?

    Hi all, I've been spending time walking the beach at Compton, Isle of Wight, UK. I came across this fossil when I was sat down after walking 2 miles and finding nothing! I've not cleaned it up yet. All of the beach is of the cretaceous era, and was found at the Western end of the beach. I've found various Aptian age finds nearby previously. I've looked online,but nothing I've seen has the very symmetrical shape and close together ridges that this has. I'd appreciate any help with this! Many thanks, Steve.
  14. Hi All, I was wondering if someone could help me potentially ID what this is? The seller found the fossil on Brighstone beach, IOW but isn't sure if it is a jaw or tail or something so I thought I would post on the forum to see what everyone thinks. I have no idea what it is but I have my doubts its a jaw or a tail...
  15. Neovenator tooth

    The seller says this tooth is from compton bay on the isle of wight, England. Is it rare or high quality.
  16. Cone from Isle of Wight wealden

    I picked up this pair of flattened cones from the wealden clay at Chilton Chine, Isle of Wight, uk last weekend. I couln’t find a similar hexagonal pattern from photos online or in the books I have on the area. Given the size and shape (roughly 3cm), I was wondering if they may be araucarian? The area is barremian. It’s also in very soft clay, so I’m currently trying to dry it slowly wrapped in damp tissue before adding paraloid with acetone to stabilise it. If a better method is advisable, I would really appreciate any advise. Thanks in advance henry
  17. I hope you all had a good Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year. I thought I’d treat myself to a Christmas fossil this year. It’s an iguanodon humerus (maybe Mantellisaurus now) from the Isle of Wight. The humerus is about 700 mm long, so pretty big and heavy. I got a local blacksmith to make the stand for me and I picked it up today. Regards Nick
  18. Request ID for two bone fragments from the Isle of Wight in England. The first one was found in Sandown on the beach near the rocks at Yaverland in the gray sandstone sediments - the Vectis formation from the Wealden Group. From this beach are found crocodile or pterosaur bones. The bone is small and has no endings that could say something more / identify, but maybe something can be said? The second bone is a small fragment of the top layer of some bone. She was found in the same place as above on the beach. I wonder if this is the contemporary bone of an animal? What do you think?
