    Carcharias sp. I believe it is a Carcharias.
  2. Help with id on this 15 cm bone

    Hello, i post here again to see if someone could help me identifying this bone I found at the beach called Les Roches noires in France. It's a 4 km long beach with a sliding coastline with sedimentary deposits. The bone is heavy and past the "burn-test", in this area I think its Jurassic-Cretaceous layers but I'm not sure, anyway this bone obviously seems more recent than that. I found it jamed in between two rocks near the clay deposits. Thanks in advance,
  3. Hi guys, this piece was weird to work on, some batches were like cement and others were loosely consolidated, though it doesnt show, i have actually done quite a lot of matrix removal. further exposing the teeth and the pecten hopw you like the finished piece, i used my pin vise and some glue for stabilising it took me about 2 1/2 hours, would anyone be able to hazard a guess at species?
  4. Hi all. Here s my second round of lockdown fossiling. Went back to my dear brittany trilos. I thought i had none to process left, but somehow i was wrong. Some are recent finds (2 weeks before lockdown), some are more storage finds during reorganisation process. Some hardly need no work, for some others it was a different story. So lets start with a bunch of ectillaenus giganteus. regards
  5. Too much rust on my Estwing ! It was a good time for hunting today
  6. I purchased this beautiful pile of poo pellets, and the matrix contained this little hitchhiker. Since I know next to nothing about trilobites, I was hoping for an assist. He dates from the Middle Ordivician (Llandeilian), and was found in the Traveusot Group (Angers), in La Meignanne, Maine-et-Loire, France. I don't know if the second photo is more of Jaques or just another trilo-bit. Thanks for indulging me. Yeah, I'm digressing.....

  12. Gastropod from France

    Hello all I found this gastropod about 18 months ago in the Provence province in France. The spot should be Cenomanian in age. It's about 1 cm wide. It's not the best picture but the fossil itself is not all too well defined. Any ideas? Thanks in advance
  13. Hello everyone, Does anybody know what this might be? Found in a stream in the forest in the region of calvados, Normandy,France. I have never found anything like this. U cant really see the details of the thing sticking out of the spongelike matrix in the pics cause my camera is not the best. But here we go:
  14. Help with id on some bones please.

    Hello everyone, During this time of pandemic lockdown (since March 17 here in france) I take a walk in the forest sometimes since I cant go to the beach to search for fossils, im in the area of calvados about 7 km from the coast and these are some of the things I found the other day walking along a dried river in the forest. I believe no.1 is a piece of petrified wood, it's heavy and have very well preserved details that look like wood. The other pieces I'm not sure, they are all heavy like rock and in some of them you can see rock. But I have no idea what they are. Size of the wood piece is 15 cm for scale. Thank you in advance for your help,
  15. I tried to walk away and let this go, but it’s really bugging me. This fish is confusing the heck out of me. I came across it on the ever popular auction site. The seller states that it is a juvenile Fundulus goreti from the Oligocene in France. The thing that bugs me the most is I can’t find ANY information on that species (apart from one mention in a 1940’s paper)! I’m starting to wonder if it even exists. Also, and I could be completely wrong, I can’t find any information on any Fundulus species in France. Am I not looking hard enough, or the correct way? Am I crazy? Most importantly, can anyone shed some light on what it may actually be?

  21. Found fews monthes ago. Unfortunaly broken in many parts as usual in this outcrop If you don't see it some indications
  22. I have some teeth from Cognac area to ID. Selachians found are Parvodus, Polyacrodus, Lissodus, Hybodus, Hybodontidae, Rhinobatidae but I don't know them. Is someone knows this fauna ? Here are 4 pics done with my phone, but perhaps I have to try with an APN... They are very very small. It is written "Portlandian" on the pics but the right stage is Berriasian. I think I have 2 different species in my collection, and I must do a lot of pics Thanks for you help. Coco
