  1. Hi TFF, Last week the GF and I went for the holy trio (geological wise ), the turonian, cenomanian and albian. It's simply amazing that in a relatively short stretch of cliffs you can find all three. Driving our way there it seemed like the UK also had some decent weather that day as it was quite visible. We first hit the turonian. On the way there you can find santonian(?) deposits which produce some nice flint urchins. I'm usually looking for big ammonites like lewesiceras or mammites. Only two small examples were found that we did not take home. In
  2. Last weekend was an extended weekend and good weather forecast, that means a few field trips to the French coast for us The first trip was Friday, we got there early in the morning and planned to hunt the Turonian part of the coast. There was a lot of sand on the beaches so we didn’t find much, but quality is better than quantity and Natalie scored 2! Ptychodus teeth. I only found an ammonite that proved to be incomplete after extracting it :/ and a flint echinoid on the way back to the car. On Monday we tried our luck in the Cenomanian and Albian part of the site. Again lots o

    Short chalky trip

    Hi TFF, The other week I went for a quick trip to the beloved chalk at Cap Blanc-Nez in France. I heard that the gault clay (albian) was exposed, since that's my main interest I had to go and see. 'Sadly' it was layer P6 (late albian) which does not provide as much ammonites as earlier layers. In my experience this layer provides quite a lot of fish remains like teeth and small vertebra. Picked up a small lamniform shark tooth. Besides a lot of bivalves (inoceramus) and gasteropods (gyrodes gaultina) there was nothing but that tooth I took home. N
  4. Hello, in my quest for jet and amber I came across this piece this week in an old mine. This is the first time that I have found a piece of good jet covered with its bark totally pyritized over several millimeters. I find the result very pleasant but I fear for its stability in the months or years to come! This dates from the Turonian and the abandoned mine is in Languedoc Roussillon in France!
  5. On Wednesday, October 12th, I took another trip to a nearby favorite spot of mine that I found a few years ago which exposes the Sciponoceras gracile Zone, Camp Wisdom Member, Upper Britton Formation of the Eagle Ford Group here in Texas (Late Cenomanian-Early Turonian, 92-95mya), and had probably my best hunt from this site, including several different ammonites, a few shark teeth, my first Enchodus, and 26 Ferroranina dichrous crabs! First find was this very nice Yezoites delicatulus (Scaphitidae) ammonite A very worn Ptychodus sp. (Ptychodontidae) shark tooth:

    Pliosaur tooth?

    This tooth hails from the goulmima, the striations tell me it's pliosaur but I'm not sure. What do people here think? @pachy-pleuro-whatnot-odon

    Cretaceous Fish (Shark) Tooth

    Please identify this tooth Found in cretaceous, turonian sandy-limestone in Poland (Górka Pychowicka, Cracow). This rock is amazing, on left there's Ptychodus decurrens tooth too.

    Spiky ammonite

    Hi TFF, I was thinking about fossils and thought why not make a small trip report. Few weeks ago the GF and I hit the usual spot in France to hunt some Turonian goodies. Lots of sand still, makes it challenging and more exciting when you find something. Within the first 10 minutes on the beach I spotted what I believed were some sweet mammites spikes in a loose boulder on the beach. It must have been just uncovered from under the sand since the sea had done some awesome polishing already. During extraction a spike were to break, glue
  9. A few weeks ago I went back to Cap Blanc-Nez in France. The variety of fossils that can be found there (aptian,albian,cenomanian,turonian) is the reason I keep coming back. Just 30 mins on the beach together with a french buddy and already a tripmaker. A freshly eroded morrowites, barely touched by the sea. While further excavating it seems a second ammonite is below. Highlighted because it's not that easy to see. Turns out to be a small Lewesiceras, incomplete anyway. Back to the good stuff. The split went like a dream, can't get any

    Cardabiodon or Dwardius?

    I acquired the tooth below a little over a year ago along with some Cretodus crassidens teeth from a Texas collector. They're from a Dallas County, Texas, site that exposes a buffer zone between the Eagle Ford and Woodbine Formations (Cenomanian-Turonian). All of the teeth were identified to me as Cretodus, and that appears to be correct for the others, but I'm pretty sure the ID on this one is incorrect. On further examination, it appears to be a cardabiodontid, though I'm not sure whether Dwardius or Cardabiodon. The slant length is just under 39 mm. @ThePhysicist @siteseer, you

    Turonian jewel in the chalk

    During the first part of our summer holiday we spent a few days at Cap-Blanc-Nez. The tides and weather weren’t optimal for fossil hunting and lots of tourism at the location didn’t help much either, so our finds were relatively limited. The last day however we found 1 spectacular piece. A little brown spot was reflecting light on one of the loose boulders on the beach. It was a ptychodus tooh peeking out. They are very rare there and this one allone was worth the trip. After the prep at home it only got better, the tooth was complete and of considerable size. Enjoy the pic

    Cameleolopha bellaplicata

    From the album: Post Oak Creek

    These oysters are common in the creek, and support the Turonian age of the fossils.

    Frustrating Turonian vertebra

    This vert was found in 91 million year old Eagle Ford strata, and while I assume it can only be fish at this point, it doesn't match any of the fish verts I compared it to ( Enchodus, Xiphactinus, Protoshyraena and Pachyrhizodus (I'm not even sure Pachyrhizodus and Protosphyraena were around in the Turonian, were they?) My thoughts below - please teach me otherwise if wrong: I don't think shark due to the thick, bony processes Not Mosasaur or Plesiosaur The placement of the processes is similar to Ichthyosaur, but that would be extremely unlikely for this time

    Coniasaurus tooth

    From the album: Squamates

    A small tooth from a small aquatic reptile that lived during the Turonian of North TX. They are small, squat teeth with textured enamel, and possess only an indistinct distal carina (no mesial carina).

    Cretaceous Shark Tooth?

    Anybody can identify this Tooth? Found in cretaceous, turonian sandy-limestone in Poland (Tyniec, Cracow). I think it's a Shark Tooth, or other fish but I don't know which exactly.
  18. A week ago my friend Diego (@fossilesdecapblancnez) sent me a message that he'd found a big lewesiceras peramplum (lower turonian, grand blanc nez formation). This is the ammonite in situ. He decided to leave it alone and come back with me a week later to extract it and carry it of the beach since it's huge. So that makes it yesterday. He arrived a bit early after high tide but luckily the ammonite was still there as the site is frequently collected. As you can see the pebbles moved quite a lot in a weeks time. It's good and bad, lots of erosion but a
  19. I would like to share this document: Vertebrates_GosauGroupofGams_2019.pdf Cretaceous Research, 2019, 7 MB The Alpine Gosau (Upper Cretaceous) is not particularly famous for its vertebrate remains. But when you process about 1000 kg of sediment, you will see, that there was indeed "something" with a backbone around in that area during that time . Franz Bernhard
  20. The Rio Puerco Valley was my introduction to fossils. For many years now, I have scoured its Late Cretaceous shales and sandstones in search of ammonites. Somewhere along the way, my fascination with the ornament grew into an investigation of its enviornment. Last week at the New Mexico Geologic Society's Spring meeting (program), I made my first venture into the world of paleontological science. With the help of Dr. Spencer Lucas of the New Mexico Museum of Natural History, I presented a poster/abstract (Foley & Lucas 2017.pdf) exhibiting my ideas. I r
  21. I've enjoyed many trip reports that @Manticocerasman made about the chalk cliffs at Cap Blanc-Nez that I decided to make one myself. A big tide, warm sunny weather and the summer season approaching... I only like one of those 3, a big tide The goal was to visit the albian gault layers if they were visible, but they were covered with sand. I've collected some of cenomanian fauna already thus I decided to visit the turonian boulders. Hunting in the turonian is not easy, it can be hours before you see something and everything has odd shapes that could be something. Th
