    ID required, please

    Hello all. Today was our first First foray into ‘shark tooth hunting’, as my kids put it. Found a fair few red herrings (crab claws) but also found the attached. We would love to get an ID if possible. Just over 3cm long and 1.5cm wide. Found along North Kent coast (Uk) much obliged Ben

    Minster, Isle of Sheppey Oct 2021

    Hi guys Went over to Sheppey yesterday to see what I could find... I'm a total novice, so I tend to pick up anything with an interesting shape and/or texture. Found some pyritised wood/twigs, a bit of crab in a phosphatic nodule, a little gastropod and some very round seed pods. The following pics are of the ones I had trouble figuring out due to their shapes resembling other things. Any clues would be great! Thanks ONE I'd like to think it's some kind of pointy reptile scute, but from my browse online it's possibly a pyritised seed husk? 3rd pic shows the dep
  3. Hi, I am new to the forum and glad to be amongst fellow enthusiasts. I recently made a rather wet and windy visit to Warden Point (Kent, UK). Amongst the usual pyritised shells, seed pods and wood on the foreshore I found 4 items that totally escape me and I would be grateful if any of you could provide any pointers. The first appeared to be a tooth but on closer examination seems to be either a conical piece of coral or a shell? The second seems to be a small section or articulation but I’ve no idea if this would be plant or animal? The third look like a section of bone with an appe

    Possible Bone Found

    Hey there, This is my first post so please excuse any newbie blunders. I found this bone or other long thing lying on the beach at Tankerton, Kent, UK part of the London Clay formation this week, 14th July 2020. The London Clay formation is said to be early/lower eocene. To me, a layman to palaeontology and Osteology, it seems like a leg bone, perhaps tibia because of it triangular shape at one end?!?! I was told by a young gentleman on the beach that Mammouth have been found there as well in the past. That is about as far as my knowledge goes. I appreci
  5. I kayaked for five miles on a day with a heat index of 108 degs and found some killer stuff. The Paleo Dalton point made my day. Rare to find mosasaur in this creek but I still managed to find a few verts. The big nautilus was beat up but looks good in my rock garden. The old bottle is a duraglas bottle from 1953.

    Trip to Folkestone

    Went to Folkestone (Early Cretaceous, Albian) for the second time a couple of weeks ago. Last time I mostly climbed among the big rocks looking in the gaps for fossils but this time due to some poor navigating we accessed the beach from the opposite end this time around. This turned out well though as this stretch of beach has few of those big rocks but good access to the cliffs and slumps. We ended up spending most of the trip picking through the cliff base and fresh fall. This produced some nice ammonites, though it was still difficult to find whole ammonites as is the case with this locatio

    Pleistocene Folkestone fossils

    Hi guys hope the photos are all right, I was wondering if anyone could help me ID these fossils, also does anyone know about the nature of the Pleistocene deposits there thanks again, will 1.bovid? 2 looks almost like lama 3.bovid? 4.bovid again? 5.lamna again? 6.horse 7.bovid x2?

    Small but perfectly formed

    I live in Thanet, England - classic White Cliffs country, chalky and flinty. Found this amongst the gravel in my driveway, so may be local, might not. Centimetre rule, so about 3 cm by 2 cm by 2cm.

    Freebie ID

    I received these 3 items as a freebie together with another purchase I made. Seller does not know what they are And only collection info is Kent, England. He does not know the exact location Largest is 1 cm Any ideas??

    Cretaceous marine thing?

    This came from the beach at Dumpton Gap in Kent. The site is mostly cretaceous chalk with bands of flint and produces sea urchins but I don't know what this is. My suspicion is sponge but I may have to stand in pseudes corner with my face to the wall.
  11. A recent acquisition that I bought just because it's beautiful. Impressions of cidarids crop up quite often in Cretaceous flint but I've never been lucky enough to find one (and I live in the wrong area). Probably Temnocidaris sp., Upper Cretaceous, Santonian, Kent coast, southern England. Test fragment 13mm across

    First outing

    Hi all I hope you all go easy as this is my first post. I have just come back from a day out at Botany Bay in Kent. This is my first attempt at fossil hunting, and this is the most fossil looking object that I could find. I would appreciate any information that people can give if it is a fossil or if its not.To me it looks like leaves have wrapped round he rock but that may just be me being over optimistic. Thanks Jack

    Trip to Folkestone

    Hi all, went to Folkestone, Kent a few weeks ago for the first time and came back with a pretty decent haul of ammonites (a lot of fragments and a fair few completes) as well as bivalves and gastropods. I think some of my finds are pretty cool so thought I'd share them with you all. I'll include my IDs but please bear with me as I am quite new to this and have certainly got some (if not most) of them wrong - so please chime in with suggestions and answers! all are from the Gault Clay, early cretaceous (Albian).anahoplites sp.anahoplites sp.no idea what these two are, as you can see they

    Hi guys I need help...

    Hi guys, I need help identifying what i think might be a fossilized Lobster tail and maybe a part of another unknown crustacean.
  15. Hope some of the UK members can be of assistance. I want to go on my first collecting trip this summer, and have been doing a bit of research. One of my main interests is plants. I live in Hertfordshire, and the nearest location I can find that has plant material is Betteshanger in Kent. It's over 200 miles round trip, so not that close to me. Has anyone collected there? Did you come away with a decent number of finds. Does anyone know of any plant locations nearer to me? Thanks
  16. So I found these fossils around Tukwila Washington. I'm not looking for an ID but I'd just like to share with you some of the gastropods and bivalves I found along the way And for all you Washington fossil hunters, don't listen to people who say you need to be in Utah to find fossils, they are everywhere here (Information: These come from the Eocene time period 40 million years ago. Some of these fossils are Turritella Uvasana (Identified by Professional) some gastropods, some pecten looking shells (still not sure) and bivalves of unknown species.)
  17. Hello I found this at the isle of sheppey months ago and am still unsure what it is. It does remind me of bone, I was thinking a partial jaw bone of something but unsure, any help with be appreciated, found at the isle of sheppey, Kent, UK.

    Dissertation help!

    I'm doing a dissertation project on the Wanstum Channel, a historic sea channel in East Kent dividing the Isle of Thanet and Kent. The channel was formed by rising sea levels at the end of the last glacial period however had silted up during the medieval age. My work focuses primarily on the physical geography and the lasting legacy of the channel. However whilst undertaking some borehole work roughly 100m from the River Stour (what remains of the Wantsum Channel) I have uncovered a small shell piece fragment around 2-3mm in diameter. If i could have this fragment identified it would mean I co

    Folkestone, UK trip advice

    Hey everyone! My son and I are heading to Folkestone (and possibly Herne Bay if we have time) tomorrow to do some fossil hunting. I’ve heard that Copt Point is the place to go to look. Does anyone have any tips or advice before we go tomorrow? I’ve already checked tide times and have planned most of the trip around it. Thanks!

    Gault Clay Fossils

    Took some pictures of a small collection of fossils i have. They are all from Folkestone (Kent) Small Ammonites Belemnites Corprolites
  22. Found whilst digging for clay pipes, my son is very keen for this this to be a tooth. It's around 5cm in length. As far as I'm aware this bit of Kent was Cretaceous/palaeogene. Any help IDing would be great. I'm assuming it's just an interesting shaped bit of flint, but the ridges on the thin edge have him hopeful it's more exciting (and our previous finds have often not been quite as interesting as we'd hoped) I only have these photos for now, but should they not be good enough, I'll take some better lit close ups in a few days... thanks for your help!

    Isle of Sheppey UK, Odd Balls.

    Good afternoon, I have been looking for an ID on these for a while. I have found a thread from another site where they said the following. "Thank you for your enquiry, I have shown your specimen to a number of palaeontologists who found it interesting. After carefully examining your specimen, it seems that the most likely identification is pyrite forming around a phosphate nodule. It is possible that in the first instance, it formed around something biogenic, however, sadly, there is not enough evidence to be able to tell. The Isle of Sheppey is particula

    Newbie with an ID request

    Hi there! I'm new here although I've been into fossils since I was a youngster! I managed to grab the following example on the south coast of Kent in the UK which is known for fossilised wood and footprints and bones etc. I thought it might be a fossilised tree limb or small trunk. What do you think? Any guidance very gratefully received! Thanks so much
  25. I found these fossils on Whitstable beach when the tide was out, what are they?
