These are now being studied and properly described by an actual paleontologist!

  18. Took me a little while to post this trip report, I'm always a busy person. This trip is from October 3rd, 2020 in Ellsworth County, Kansas at a reservoir. The predominant formation at the site I visited is Kiowa formation; which is known for marsh and delta environments in the early Cretaceous (Albian). I found some interesting things and I'll show below. Possibly some carbonized wood materials. Lignite or coal? It was flaky and would crumble if touched. It left some black powders on my hands after handling it. I found several large pieces of them together and partly encased in concretions. Putting them together would make them about a meter and half long. Piece #1: Piece #2: Backside of #2. Notice the clutches of concretions. ...continued on the next post.
  19. What happened to this ammonite

    Hello all I have had this ammonite for quite some time now, but since it has been tucked away in a drawer for the last couple of months. There is something weird about this piece however. The front looks pretty normal, except is a bit deformed. But on the back, it looks like the ammonite exploded. Hard to explain so I hope the pictures help. I've heard of exploded ammonites before so I wonder if this is one. Thanks all for your help
  20. Summer vacation fossil hunting week. Like each summer Natalie and I spend 1 week of our holiday for a fossil hunting trip. Usually the destination for this is the Isle of Wight, but due to the current covid situations we had to choose another location. So we went for 1 week to the French coast altering between late Cretaceous and Jurassic deposits.. Although there were no big tide or storms we still got our fair share of fossils in the boulders on the beaches and we even had a few spots of gault clay exposed where we found some nice phosphate ammonites and crustaceans. I’ll let you all enjoy the holiday pictures: Natalie found this exqusite little lobster in situ on the beach on the 1st day: ( Hoploparia longimana, Albian ( Gault clay ) ) soon joined by another specimen. Ichthyosaur vert from the Kimmeridgian: more beach: jurassic ripplemarks: Chalky ammonites in the loose boulders: Mantelliceras sp. : lower Cenomanian Cunningtoniceras inerme Mid. Cenomanian And a large one found by a local collector that we got to take back home ( Thx a lot Luc ) ( Lewesiceras peramplum, Turonian ) And a few pieces after cleanup and prepwork: Albian Ammonites from the gault clay: Gault clay crabs: a few of the chalky ammonites: a nice rare heteromorph: Turrilites scheuchzerianus mid. Cenomanian before and after prep:
  21. New Feathered Carnivorous Dinosaur Found in Brazil by Enrico de Lazaro, Sci.News, July 14, 2020 http://www.sci-news.com/paleontology/aratasaurus-museunacionali-08633.html Fossilised foot of a three-toed dinosaur that lived in Brazil 115 million years ago is identified as belonging to a new species that may be a forerunner of today's birds. Daily Mail https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-8517113/Fossilised-foot-three-toed-dinosaur-lived-Brazil-115-million-years-ago-found.html The open access paper is: Sayão, J.M., Saraiva, A.Á.F., Brum, A.S., Bantim, R.A.M., de Andrade, R.C.L.P., Cheng, X., de Lima, F.J., de Paula Silva, H. and Kellner, A.W., 2020.

  22. A Cretaceous walk on the beach

    Last Saturday we finally went back to the Cretaceous deposits at the northern French coast. On some spots on the beach the gault clay deposits were visible, this delivered a few beautiful belemnites ( Neohibolites minimus ) and from time to time other small fossils washed out of the clay and scattered in the shingle. The chalk boulders near the clifs were not very productive, apart from a very rare Ptychodus tooth. This one made our day.
  23. 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 location. We also found some nice gastropods well preserved, though very delicate, in the clay, as well as belemnites, bivalves and lots of ammonite fragments. My favourite find is the Eutrephoceras clementinum nautilus as I believe they are fairly rare and the colours on it are great. Also the Euhoplites proboscideus is a lovely shade and nicely detailed (Good find boyfriend). ID's are somewhat tentative so if you have any suggestions I'd be grateful. ??
  24. Brachiopod or Bivalve?

    Kiowa formation and Albian. Approximately 1.3cm long and its quite flat and thin. Not sure if it's brachiopod, more specifically a lingula brachiopod, or a bivalve. Unfortunately the umbo is missing so I'm not sure if it's symmetrical or not. I'm leaning more on bivalve but I would like to read your opinion. What's the lowest taxonomy level you can identify?
