  1. Hi, I thought I'd share some of my finds from what was a pretty good trip up to Bouldnor Cliff on Tuesday morning. This was my first collecting trip in over a month due to tides, being ill over Christmas and being generally busy, so I missed out on most of December. But hopefully I can start getting back into going twice a week again as usual. Low tide was at 09:48 so I decided to head for Bouldnor instead of Hamstead, as it's a lot easier to quickly access. My hope was that the prolonged stormy weather we've had for a couple of weeks now would have brought up some ni

    Vertebrae from West runton

    Hi, after sieving through a load of mud from the fossil river bed I found a few tiny vertebrae about 5mm X 5mm. I assume these are small mammals like a vole or something, but would be good to know what the likely contenders are from this site.

    "Micro" ID

    Hello! Just some more stuff from Pleistocene cave deposits near Kempsey, Australia. If any more info is needed feel free to ask. As usual, I will be uploading more for ID later 1. Fish? Lizard? (excuse the red number, its for something else )
  4. Hey everyone! I want to know your favorite extinct animal and why. Theropods, ornithischians, artiodactyls, cetaceans, carnivores, plesiosaurs, pterosaurs, gastropods!!! Megatherium, Tyrannosaurus Rex, Anzu Wyliei, Leedsichthys, Stegosaurus, Megalodon, Glyptodon, Moonshot, Woodstock, Watergate, Punk Rock! (just kidding) ANYWAYS, there are no limits here. Even if its coral. Get specific! Do you have a fossil from your favorite creature? If not, is it even possible to acquire one? Have any interesting discoveries been made about your creature as of late? Jus
  5. Hello fossil-hunters! My most recent fossil hunt was rather successful! I went to the Zandmotor, in the Netherlands, which is known for its abundance of: fossil seashells, big Ice Age mammal bones, fish material and more Pleistocene fossils. Here are the things I found: 1) All the black/brown things on the top are bones/bone shards from big Pleistocene mammals such as the mammoth, the cave lion, the cave hyena, the Irish Elk, the woolly rhino, the bison, etc. - 2) The big white shells on the right are Acanthocardia tuberculata - 3) The smaller shells next to them are Mactra pliston
  6. According to this recent study, the popular belief that mammals diversified after the extinction that killed the non-avian dinosaurs is incorrect; mammals diversified in the shadow of the dinos long before the extinction, and actually had a drop in diversity after it. The reason for this diversification was the evolution of angiosperms (flowering plants), which provided mammals with new food sources. Research paper: http://rspb.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/283/1832/20160256 Simplified version: http://www.sci-news.com/paleontology/early-mammals-diversification-03931.html

    Pleistocene bones Florida

    These are a bunch of bones from the pleistocene period found in Florida, USA. I haven't got a clue as to what these come from so I am guessing raccoon, giant armadillo, duck, deer and maybe birds. Not sure what species but I am psyched. It would be very much be appreciated if anyone can take a look and with your pleistocene expertise maybe help me decent what bones belong to what animal.

    Pleistocene Mammal Vertebra

  11. While doing a search at Paleobiology Database, I was curious to see if I might find records of marine vertebrates from the Cenomanian-Santonian of the Utah, Montana, Idaho, and Arizona because most tetrapods found in the Cenomanian-Santonian of Nebraska, Kansas, and the Dakotas are primarily mosasaurs, plesiosaurs, pterosaurs, marine turtles, and seagoing birds (e.g. Ichthyornis, Hesperornis) and terrestrial vertebrates have been found in the Western Interior dating from the Cenomanian-Santonian interval (e.g. Oryctodromeus, Eolambia, Sonorasaurus, Albanerpeton cifellii, Nothronychus graffmani
  12. All of may not know this, but the Middle Jurassic La Boca Formation in Mexico boasts the most important Middle Jurassic tetrapod fauna in North America outside the US. Among the notable fossils found in the La Boca Formation are primitive mammals, sphenodonts, and even archosaurs (incl. the pterosaur "Dimorphodon" weintraubi and an unnamed mesoeucrocodylian). When compared to other Middle Jurassic faunas, it's interesting that the tritylodont Bocatherium is roughly the same age as the other two Middle Jurassic tritylodonts Bienotheroides and Stereognathus. As some of the components of the La B
  13. Both specimens were collected in the late 1950's by Otto Geist, with very little locality information. The links take you to the ARCTOS database pages about the specimens, with collection info and high quality pictures. This one was collected near Ruby, Alaska. My initial thought was that it is a horn pedicle of some sort but I would expect to see some brain case, and I don't. A previous identifier called it a Moose antler tine, but after some comparison I have trouble seeing antler tine. http://arctos.database.museum/guid/UAM:ES:3616 The vertebra was collected on the Koyuk River, Seward
