  1. Identification Help

    What type of fossil is this? I've found specimens from 8inches to 30inches across in chalk cliffs in New Zealand. Thank you for any advice.
  2. Block of Echinocorys Gravesii

    From the album Best of 2017 finds - a year in review

    Block of Echinocorys Gravesii from Les Petites Dalles, Normandy, France - Coniacian - collected in may 2017
  3. Western Kansas

    Hi all, I recently was able to briefly visit the Niobrara chalk beds of western Kansas. However, I know almost nothing about Cretaceous life. I attached a picture of something that may be an iron concretion, but it’s small, disc-like shape made me think twice. I want to see what you all think. Next to the object are several ichthyodectes caudal vertebrae (that’s what I think they are anyway). Thanks as always!!
  4. Samphire Hoe, Sussex, England

    Samphire Hoe, Sussex is not far from Dover and was created by dumping stuff from the digging of the Channel Tunnel. It is a wonderful nature reserve, has a small shop/café, access to the beach and chalk fossils are easy to find on the surface of the fallen blocks. Mobile phone service is a bit weird as my phone connected and said Welcome to France, but Dutch tourists there had English connection. Good job there is a pay phone. Here are just a few of the bits I took a photo of. Not completely prepped yet but you get the idea of what can be found. Some are micro fossils from the dust as chalk easy to break down or scoop up from the bottom of the cliff. 1 - common foram 2 - Ramulina foram 3 - Tiny tooth next to Tritaxia foram ( let me know if I have got my ID wrong) 4 - Fish scale 5 - Bivalve with encrusting bryozoa 6 & 7 -Onchotrochus serpentinus Corallite overhead view and of one end confirming not a serpula 7 to 9 - What I think is shed isopod skin, NHM could not ID it but then they sent it to the fish department.
  5. Fish Scale Isle of Wight

    Here is a Hoplopteryx lewesiensis fish scale found in the lower chalk at the end of Yaverland Beach Isle of Wight. (1 mile walk from entrance point), I only saw a tiny bit of black on the surface, so that went into my rucksack and after a lot of careful prep this complete scale came out. Well worth the slog to get there.

  8. Isle of Wight Fossils

    Hi guys; I have recently been treated to a nice week down the Isle of Wight and having spent the first day down in Yaverland today I though I would share some of my finds. 1) these both appear to be Vertebra, I'm assuming they are dinosaur as I'm preatty sure I've read somewhere that crocodiles have concave and convex ends to their Vertebra but may be totally of base with that assumption.
  9. claw marks on wood

    I found these scratch marks on a piece of carbonized wood in central Alabama. There are six parallel lines. My thoughts are claw marks made while the wood was terrestrial. There are no corresponding lines on the flip side so I am ruling out teeth marks. Any thoughts? or any suggestions on how to analysis.
  10. A trip to Haute Normandie cretaceous cliffs ( The plasterers' balad ) - Part 1 During three days we travelled along the Haute Normandie coast. The area we ventured in is cretaceous : cenomanian (-99 MA), turonian (-93 MA) and coniacian (-89 MA), following the west to east dip. Day 1 : Antifer We met in Saint-Jouin de Bruneval, on the beach parking lot next to the oil terminal. We started the trip at 9 am, so we could hike quite far before the tide would stop us. Sky was shiny and quite fast the temperature started to rise. We mostly spent the morning looking for fossils in cenomanian boulders and chalcedonies among the peebles. We let the tide lock us and made a break for a picnic and a nap. Once the tide let us, we started again to look for fossils, under a scorching heat. At about 6 pm we made our way back to the cars. The beach which was empty in the morning was now overcrowded. We mostly found some irregular echinoids : crassiholaster and catopygus (some with a really nice preservation), some brachiopods, some bivalves (most fragile) (including nice rastellum) and 2 shark teeth. Here's a geoligical presentation of the area (in french unfortunately) http://craies.crihan.fr/?page_id=13478 Some of my finds on that day : heres a link a my flickr galery for the whole trip : https://www.flickr.com/photos/48637020@N06/albums/72157682540354264 Crassiholaster subglobosus Crassiholaster subglobosus Crassiholaster subglobosus with a smal bivalve print Catopygus colombarius more to come soon...
