  10. Fossils from Vlissingen

    The second part of my trip finds ... http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/68391-teeth-and-more-from-antwerp I was three times on a beach near Vlissingen, named "de kaloot" in the Netherlands. Its a very good location for collectors because its not that used for tourism. You can only collect there at low tide. I found some shark teeth, ray teeth, some bones and some bivalves. The shark teeth are normally very small and not that nice ... Here is my whole haul: The best tooth is this 2.8 cm long shark tooth (Please help to id this find): Another smaller tooth with a lenght of 1 cm is this one: I am not sure with the ID ... If you want i can take more detailed picture of the shark teeth ... I also found some bivalves like this three Glycymeris: A rare find was this Pectenid: (5 cm long) In contrast to the location in Antwerp i only found one bone: (13 cm long) Last but not least ... another good find: A big fish vertebra with a size of 4.5 cm ! Thanks for viewing ! Hope you enjoy
  11. Teeth and more from Antwerp

    The last two weeks i was on vacation in the Netherlands. I was there with my whole family so i couldnt search that much ... The best location was near Antwerp (Belgium). There was desposited sand from the Westerschelde (with fossils). Unfortunately, the times in abundance are over and its very overgrown now, but at a few places you can still find something .... Looks good .... The best method is to dig a bit and sieve the material. Now my finds ... I found many shark teeth, bones and other cool things. Most of the shark teeth are very small and often they are damaged or unrolled. In two times i was there i found some good teeth with a length between 2-5 cm. Here you can see some: (sry on the top right corner are teeth from Vlissingen) I tried to determine some of them so please correct me Detailed pictures: A nice 3.6 cm long teeth ... think it could be Isurus oxyrinchus. Cosmopolitodus ? The tooth is 2.3 cm long. This tooth was very common, but i dont know the name ... (Length: between 1 until 2 cm) Carcharias acutissimus (1.6 cm long) Carcharoides catticus (1.8 cm long) And the last shark tooth i want to show (for now) is this very small (0.5 cm long) Notorhynchus sp. :
  12. Hello! Some of you may have heard the news. The Netherlands now has it's own T. rex and it was unveiled today! This is the same T. rex that @chele and her husband found in Montana back in 2013. After that it was dug up by a team of Naturalis the natural history museum in Leiden in cooperation with the Black Hills Institute. This museum also bought the T. rex. Around 5 million euros was crowdfunded to make this possible. The skeleton was prepared in the Black Hills Institute by Pete Larson and his team. The T. rex is of the robust morph and thus probably a female. The animal has been named Trix after our former queen Beatrix. As of spetember 10th the skeleton will be viewable by the public for a time. As the museum is in the middle of a huge renovation the skeleton is temporarily housed in the only part that is open to the public now. I don't know the exact dates but the skeleton will go on tour and in 2018 the skeleton should get it's final resting place in the new dinosaur hall at the museum. The staff of the museum got a preview before the unveiling (I'm a volunteer at the fossil prep lab) so I was lucky enough that I could take some photos. So without further ado. Some pictures... I noticed that the pectoral girdle seems to be positioned really low compared to other reconstructions. Lastly a picture of one of the information panels. This shows how much of the skeleton is real. I've been told around 75% to 80% of the bone volume is present. Some more information on this T. rex. - The animal is now named Trix. After the former Dutch queen Beatrix. - Trix is in the top 3 of best preserved T. rexes. - The skeleton is of the robust morph. So it's probably female. - This is the only T. rex skeleton in the world that is mounted with the real skull. - The missing bones were 3d printed. Some mirrored versions of bones that were present. And some bones based on Sue, such as the feet. - Trix was prepped in the Black Hills Institute. - Trix is about the same size as Sue. - There are a lot of pathologies. This includes T. rex bitemarks on the jaw and broken ribs. - After this temporary exhibit and tour the skeleton will be permanently housed in the new dinosaur hall in Naturalis in Leiden. Because it's some part news, part fossil hunting trip and part museum visit I figured it best fitted being in general discussion.
  13. Mammal tooth ?

    I found this 4 cm long tooth on a beach in Brouwersdam "near" Rotterdam (North sea). After some research i think it could be a bison tooth (Bison priscus (?)) ... Hope somebody can help ... thanks
  14. Shark teeth from the Netherlands

    Hello, These shark teeth come from a location called 'de Zandmotor'. Most finds are from Pleistocene mammals, but sometimes I find a shark tooth. The 2 teeth on the same picture are squatina sp. But I havo no idea from which shark the first tooth is. Rick
  15. Hi all, i'd like to share some of my better finds this year from the quarry called 't Rooth. It has been a great year for me and my dad and we found some great stuff. Hopefully you will enjoy them as much as i do. As i still have to prep some i'll add those later. Pic 1: Gauthieria pseudoradiata Pic 2-3: mosasaur tooth if i'm correct Plioplatecarpus marshi Arno
  16. Enci Trips 2015

    Hello all, The new season has started in april already but i didn't have the time to share my finds with you all yet. Last saturday we went for the third trip to the ENCI quarry. This was a productive trip with a lot of nice finds mostly shark teeth though but also a nice mosasaur tooth, a partial enchodus jaw and some sea urchins. Which i will share in a few posts. The first trip was also quite productive though in sea urchins. Especially the Rhynchopygus marmini was nice to find as these are quite rare. The second trip was not as productive as the first and third trip but a nice mosasaur tooth made it still worth it. I hope you all will enjoy the pics and i will try to share more regularly in the future. The pics i will put in the next posts with the number of the trip. Regards, Arno
  17. Hello, I am searching for this dissertation: Lambers, P. H. (1992). On the Ichthyofauna of the Solnhofen Lithographic Limestone (Upper Jurassic, Germany). Dissertation, Rijksuniversiteit Groningen. On the university´s website there is ´just´ a pdf file of the summary. Maybe students of Rijksuniversiteit Groningen have access to the dissertation via the library? Thank you very much.
  18. Hey all, i wanna share some pics of the finds i did on my first trip in 2015 to the quarry and what a day it was. I had a great production of teeth (doubled my record at this quarry) and my dad founds a good number of sea urchins (Hemipneustes and Procassidulus lapiscranci). The Hemipneustes still need some preparation but that's a different story. I'm especially happy with the nice big Archaeolamna kopingensis and the number of squalicorax pristodontus (these are quite rare over here). regards,
  19. Tooth? (Winterswijk)

    Hello all, i've found this "tooth" last weekend at the quarry of Winterswijk. I think it is a shark tooth but from what shark? Hopefully someone can ID it thx in advance. Arno
  20. Trip To Winterswijk

    Hey all, I've been to Winterswijk the 6th and i did some nice finds. Here are some of the fossils after preparation. Pic1: shark teeth both acrodus Pic2-4: shark tooth? Pic5:
  21. Hello, As said in my last topic (A day at The ENCI) i would add some finds of other quarries in my area and today i visited 't Rooth. Which is also a quarry in the Netherlands of the late cretaceous time period (Maastrichtian). Today was quite a productive day with gastropods ,shark ray and fish teeth and parts of nautilus. But the most interesting find i did after searching for about 15 min. A nice 3/4 inch Mosasaurus tooth just lying on a slope. I will post more pics of the gastropods tomorrow.
  22. Hey, I'd like to share some pics of the wonderful finds me and my dad did at the ENCI quarry 9th of august. It is a quarry of the late cretaceous time period (Maastrichtian) and we search there in a layer called the horizont of Lichtenberg. Normally you've got to work pretty hard for some nice finds but that day it was nicely digged free by the people who work there. A nice bonus! After a few small finds i stumbled on a piece of bone that at first looked small but after a closer look was about 8cm (3 inches) long. I got it out and got it in the box near by gear and searched further for some nice finds. Which were mostly awesome shark teeth and some sea urchins. After i got home i did some preparations on the finds and these are some of the results:
