  1. Hello everyone, I visited a beach in the Netherlands and I collected some things that I thought had the chance to be fossilized. I want to ask if the next specimens in the pictures I will post are fossilized seashells, modern ones, just rocks? And what kind of seashells they are in case they are fossilized. Thank you! I will post them separately in the replies.
  2. I found these on the beach in The Netherlands. I would appreciate if someone would tell me if they are fossils or just rocks and what they are, if fossils. In the case of the sand dollars, I don't know if they are skeletons or fossils. They are hard and I can't break them. Thank you so much!
  3. Hello to everybody! I'm kinda new here, but before I start I must say I really love this forum! It has really great vibes and you instantly can tell that this is a good and friendly community! So, I am ziggycardon, I live in Belgium, close to the border of the Netherlands and when we start speaking geologically, I live on the same cretaceous sediments as where the first major Mosasaurus discoveries where done! Unfortunatly I have never been on a fossil hunt myself and everything currently in my collection was bought or given to me. But I hope to change that soon, as I am dyi
  4. Found this on a Dutch beach (Zandmotor) 6 months ago. Max. diameter appr. 14 mm. Shape looks somewhat like a pentagon. Two sides have openings in them (marked a and b in pictures), within each opening there there seems to be a bit dividing both openings in two halves. Ar least one of the corners of the pentagon seems to have had a protrusion (stalk, arm?) that has broken off. Encircled in the pictures. Due to the shape, the openings, and the broken off bit this looks like like some echinoderm fossil to me. But which one? Any ideas?
  5. Mid-February, officially still winter, yet it felt like spring yesterday. In February, the average temperature in the Netherlands is about 3 degrees, so yesterday it was not cold at 14 degrees. I couldn't wait any longer this year, and planned my first quest of 2023. I really had to get out, so sat in my auro early in the morning arriving 3 hours later at the Selzerbeek in South Limburg, the Netherlands. The stream mainly runs through Vijlener limestone (Upper Cretaceous / Gulpen Formation / Vijlen Limestone). This means that you can encounter all fossils from this stratigrap
  6. Hi everyone! For those of you who live in or close to the Netherlands: on April 22nd 2023, the PaleoTime-NL International Fossil Event will be held again, this year in the town of Houten, The Netherlands. This show is the biggest paleontological event in the Netherlands, a meeting between amateur and professional paleontologists, for the exchange of knowledge, experiences and fossils, or just a day to meet like-minded people. There are informative lectures, prep demo's and many more activities. For more information, see the website www.paleotime.nl Is anyone of you guy
  7. Greetings, First post here, and I'm at a loss trying to identify this (suspected) fossil. I found this a few days ago on Zandmotor beach, in Monster in The Netherlands. On first glance it appears to be a molar, but it looks very different from the Pleistocene material that Zandmotor beach is known for. I've never seen a molar inside a matrix like this one. Some have suggested that it's just a rock, or maybe a piece of limonite. I realise that this specimen looks completely different from other fossil material found at Zandmotor beach, but I'm still positive th
  8. At the end of October 25°C, much too warm for the time of year against a long-term average of 10.9°C. On the other hand, perfect weather to go looking for fossils in the stream. The village of Mamelis near Vaals looked magical. Behind these houses is the stream and here it is only 10 to 20 centimeters deep. The Selzerbeek rises on the Vaalser Berg and has a length of approximately 13 kilometers. At Gulpen (ZL) the stream flows into the Geul. The stream runs mainly through Vijlener limestone (Upper Cretaceous / Maastricht Formation / Vijlen Limestone). This me
  9. A few weeks ago I took the dog (our Nova Scotia duck tolling retriever) to the hills of southern Limburg (the Netherlands) to walk especially around Gulpen and the Malensbos. To look for fossilized sea urchins that can sometimes be found after rainfall. These sea urchins date from the Gulpener chalk (Cretaceous period). Taking the dog on a fossil hunt is wonderful. She enjoys any type of environment. Although it is sometimes annoying that the boss does not continue and just keeps digging. She forgets that I have to wait at every puddle because I have to swim again.
  10. Last weekend after a windy week I decided to go to the beach of Katwijk aan Zee (Netherlands) to see what fossils had washed up. It was a lovely walk along the North Sea. Mammal remains from the Pleistocene (part of the Neogene period) sometimes wash up on the Dutch coast. The bone material comes from layers that are eroded below the sea surface. In the Pleistocene the North Sea was a kind of tundra plain where various animals lived such as woolly mammoth and rhinoceros, the giant deer, eland, wild horses, red deer, musk oxen, steppe bison, cave bear, cave
  11. This week I went to look for belemnites in the "big forest" near Beutenaken (South Limburg, the Netherlands), in the uncovered parts of the famous belemnite cemetery in the "Gulpense kalk" (Gulpen formation, part of the Cretaceous period). If you look closely you can find a lot of (mostly fragments of) belemnites, especially Belemnitella Mucronata (Schlotheim). The high concentration of belemnites in certain places in this forest is because the limestone has disappeared through dissolution. The harder belemnites are left behind. After a lot of work I finally had a day o
  12. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in trading his/her mosasaurus jaw or partial from a site (Either United States or somewhere in Europe). I've got various amount of eurasian pleistoceen stuff, some dinosaurus teeth. Megalodon teeth of great quality too. Please if you know anyone, feel free to contact me!

    Trix the T-Rex

    Hello fellow fossil enthusiasts, I should have posted this a long time ago, in fact I should have done it when I got home from the visit, but I guess I forgot... So here it is, with about 2 months of delay. So that day I went to the Naturalis museum in Leiden, Netherlands. I went there for a special reason: to see a record-holding fossil! And this legend is nothing less than Trix, the mighty T-Rex. What is special with Trix is that it's the only T-Rex fossil to be in a museum outside of America. Here is the story behind the beast: a couple were hiking in Montana,
  14. Decided to go to the beach at Katwijk, Netherlands as one of our first post Covid days out. While we didn’t go to some of the more famous fossil areas like the Zandmotor, one can always hope. There was a lot of debris on the beach after a recent storm, so hope went up. While it was mostly wood and recently deceased sea stars I did manage to pick up this piece. So far I have arrived to seal / Pinniped and maybe Phoca vitulina. No reaction to a glowing needle.

    Various sponges

    Hi, i recently received those very nice sponges from @badeend. I asse they're all Hexactinellids. I know identfying sponges even when you have them un grand is a hard thing to do. Any help to try a more precise ID is greatly welcome. Here is the number1, a glass sponges ? Kimmeridgian, Kalberbeg, Netherlands

    Snake Vertebra?

    Hello all, I found this in Scheveningen beach, Netherlands, I was doing inverse search in google and the closest thing that came up is a snake vertebra fossil, could this be one? , in some pics the color appears to be black because the fossil was wet, thanks for your help!
