  1. I’ve had Big Brook and Ramanessin on my shark tooth hunting list for a while and finally made it up to both today. It’s a 6-hour roundtrip drive from where I live and with the days still pretty short this time of year, I had originally planned to spend my limited time just at Big Brook. After an hour-and-a-half of mostly striking out on shark teeth there, however, I decided to head over to Ramanessin, which both @Bob-ay and @PaleoNoel had recommended. Luckily, the two spots are only about 10 minutes apart, so I didn’t waste much time in transit, and I was rewarded with much better gravels at Ramanessin than I’d found at Big Brook. Some pictures of my trip and finds are below. While I’d hoped to find more intact shark teeth in the Cretaceous streams today (nearly all that I found were partials), all-in-all, I had an enjoyable trip and found a decent variety of things for my first time in the area. I look forward to returning! I parked at and entered Big Brook via Hillsdale Road. Unfortunately, there weren't a ton of exposed gravels there today (I was walking in the direction of Boundary Road, though I stopped about 2/3 of the way there). My first fossil find of the day: Belemnitella americana. These are pretty common and I had a couple from Big Brook already via a trade with @butchndad but this was my first belemnite find ever! I found this Enchodus petrosus fang on one of the first decent gravel bars. It measures 36 mm long and turned out to be my find of the day. This was the only (mostly) compete shark tooth (it's missing the very tip) that I found in my hour and a half at Big Brook. I believe it's a small Cretalamna appendiculata. I only found two other fragments of shark teeth in the time I was there. Photos from Ramanessin coming up...
  2. Shark bite mark?

    Found this belemnite in ignaberga sweden. The mark reminds me of some type of bite mark? Maybe shark?
  3. Belemnite preparation sweden

    I have noticed when prepping swedish belemites that when i remove matrix and shell fragments small holes come up. And its very annoying. Is there any cause to this? Is it just how i prep? I hope u can see it in the pictures. Should i polish it? Hope that someone knows the cause
  4. Unidentifiable Fossil

    My boys and I went fossil hunting in Big Brook New Jersey and can’t identify this one we found. It looks like a worm inside a Belemnite fragment but was told Belemnite fragments are hollow.
  5. I found these Jurassic ammonite fragments and belemnites near Seatown along the UK Dorset coast.
  6. Belemnite Cephalopod Art

    Few months back my girlfriend and I stumbled upon a nice deposit of Belemnites in a new area we were exploring, some examples better then others. We decided to make a little art piece to display in the house of the epic afternoon we had! Here is our Belemnite sun. Let us know what you think!
  7. My 9 year old daughter’s collection had outgrown the old shelves so we took a trip to Ikea today to get something more suitable. Though I don’t think it’ll be long before this one is full too... From top to bottom; ‘Ice Age’ A mammoth tooth, couple of mammoth ribs and a few other bits Purchases A few things we’ve bought, including some fish, a nice display of pecten and a few teeth (plesiosaur, mosasaur, spino) North Yorkshire finds The best of our finds on the coast (excluding ammonites) including a lot of belemnites, bivalves and a couple of ichthyosaur verts Other purchases A potamon and a pea crab, a few trilobites and other bits and pieces Ammonites Nearly all found ourselves on the coast but a couple of purchases too. Local river finds Some rugose coral, crinoids, stigmaria and a few brachiopods Hoping to add plenty of interesting new fossils with a week on the Jurassic Coast in August
  8. Good morning allow me to first say how much I’ve learned from you folks. Admittedly starting from scratch, by reading your posts and then googling words I’m getting a great education. I never knew what concretion or chert or phragmocone meant. I have a long ways to go but I’m learning today’s question is these two photos. They were found in big brook and the longer is one inch long. Chewed up belemnite or ghost shrimp burrow (wouldn’t be porous?) or what?
  9. Help with ID

    Hi! This fossil was found in Middle Tennessee. I have asked a few people what they think it is and their answers have been straight shelled cephalopod and internal structure of a belemnite (which is basically the same, isn’t it)? What do you think? If it is an internal structure of the belemnite, is it the phragmocone? Thank you for your help!
  10. I've been looking at my specimens of Acrocoelites trisulculosus from the Toarcian Jet Rock (Mulgrave Shale Member = Falciferum Zone) of the north Yorkshire coast. This is an anoxic mudstone deposited during a prominent worldwide Ocean Anoxic Event (OAE) and, as might be expected, the preservation is very good. A number of them (7 so far) have a thin pyrite layer around the apex. This shows obvious lineation in all of them, mostly oblique to the axis of the rostrum. As pyrite is often associated with soft tissue decay, I strongly suspect that this is preserving muscle texture. The texture is similar to that preserved in some other coleoids (e.g. from Solnhofen). Has anyone else seen this? Comments welcome! EDIT: I may be wrong about the soft preservation - a few well preserved specimens from other localities (though not from here) show similar texture on the calcite. Most belemnites look smooth though. (Comments and photos further down this thread) Just two of the specimens here: No. 1: No. 2: left lateral (with divided dorso-lateral furrow - a little unusual) right lateral
  11. Tiny Belemnite?

    Found this on a beach full of belemnites, however I’ve never seen one this small. Could this be a belemnite and if so would it have been a juvenile or a different species to the larger ones we normally find? Thank you for looking
  12. Belemnites vs crinoids, tooth

    Found these tubular fossils in the Cody Shale in the Bighorn Basin or Wyoming. Friends state they are squids of some type. I can't find any type of belemnite that would fit the bill. Are these possibly crinoids? As for the tooth, found laying on top of soil in this Cody Shale...our friends state they have never found a tooth in this area prior. (see photos next post) Thanks, Dean
  13. Belemnite ID request

    Here is another item from my unidentified drawer I'm hoping someone will be able to put a name on. Thanks.
  14. Bone bed of Cephalopods

    I found this conglomeration of fossils in between a layer of sedimentary rock and a crystalline layer of what I can only assume is calcite. I can identify a few shapes in the upper part of the fossil that lead me to believe I had found a bed of young baculites. It took me a good hour to dig up all of my finds, which included an array of brachiopods and or bivalves, ammonites, and cute little scorpion who was very much alive. (I almost crushed the little guy with my gigantic human hand) Needless to say, I was very happy with my new collection of marine fossils. I will be returning to the site soon to collect more and better quality specimens. ;D
  15. Hi TFF, I recently was in New Jersey and stopped by a creek where I found this. This is a part of a belemnite, an extinct order of squid-like cephalopods that existed from the Late Triassic to Late Cretaceous (~214-80 mya); these are common to the NJ area and the NE USA (as well as all over the world). The cone (rostrum) you are looking at was inside the animal and served as part of an internal skeleton-like structure; it also served as a counter-weight while moving in the water. On the cross-section (C & D), notice the radial symmetry which sprouts from a central axis outward, these are made of calcite crystals, deposited in concentric layers as the animal grew. The symmetry runs through the entire cylindrical body to the apex. These animals were very abundant in the sea and they had 10 arms that had hooks on them which they used to catch prey (soft body fossils exist). There is extensive literature on them available. Image C is most interesting, because there is a bore hole on it, something quite commonly found on the exterior shells of clams, etc. I found that according to Seilacher (1969), micro barnacles would often bore holes in dead (and possibly live) belemnite rostrums on the horizontal plane just like this. See: Seilacher, A. (1969). Paleoecology of boring barnacles. Am. Zoologist, 9:705-719. Univ. of Tubingen, Germany. Notice the uniform long shape, the sleekness of this evolutionary mini marvel.... as Dawkins has said, "Science is the poetry of life." Hope you find this interesting.

  18. Triassic Cephalopods fro Epidaurs

    Hi Guys, I'm taking advantage of this period of staying at home to recheck and better identify the fossils from my collection. Someone can tell me the genus and species of these triassic fossils of Epidaurus. Thanks in advance and please stay home if you can !!
  19. I’ve noticed what I believe to be a small fish bone stuck to the rostrum on one of my belemnites this one being a Cylindroteuthis puzosiana. Can anyone else see the characteristics of a fish bone?
  20. Hello everyone, Yesterday my girlfriend & I went fossil hunting for birthday. This was the first fossil hunt the two of us did on our self, our previous hunts were all excursions with the Belgian Association for Paleontology. We visited two locations, but locations are part of the Formation of Gulpen, around 68 million years old, dating back to the Maastrichtian (these outcrops are part of the Maastrichtian type location where the first mayor Mosasaurus discovery was done). The first location we visited was a limestone outcrop next to the Albert Channel here in Belgium, only a 20 minute drive away. I discovered this outcrop while looking out the window whenever I drive to Maastricht and yesterday we decided to check it out. It is quite a little outcrop, no more than 70 meters wide, but one of the few places left where you can hunt in Limburg. We hunted here for around one and a half hour and we only searched the fallen and loose bits of limestone that were the results of erosion. We didn't want to start hacking in the rock. We mainly found ancient sea shells of different species and some bryozoa's in this location. And a some pieces of wall where teeming with urchin fragments, but we didn't find any intact one near the surface. But since the urchin graveyard was deeply enbedded in the rock and we didn't want to hack in it, we left it as it was The second location we visited was the "Grote Bos" in Beutenaken in The Netherlands. Here there are holloways in the forest that expose some limestone outcrops. This spot is known for it's belemnite which can be found on the forest paths, because the soft limestone gets eroded but hard belemnites remain, making them very easy to find. We found around 25 belemnites during our 1 hour hunt there as well as a shell imprint and a mystery fossil. Like the previous location, the patch of limestone where these belemnite can be found is also only around 70 meter long, but luckily very rich.
  21. Belemnite rostrum

    That's my second complete belemnite rostrum found. First I found was bigger than that and measured 6,5 inch. It was donated to the museum for a permament exhibition which was a big event for a novice paleo enthusiast like me Back on the track, shortly after my first belemnite went to the museum I found another fine specie, one inch smaller but no less pretty I prepared it with Dremel engraver and brush with hard hair.
  22. I follow the Moskva...

    ...Down to Gorky( Brateyevsky) park... Hi all! It is time to introduce you to the famous Panderi zone of the Moscow fossils. It is named after Dorsoplanites panderi ammonite (middle Volgian/Tithonian, Upper Jurassic), which in turn got its name from Heinz Christian Pander. It consists of numerous cast iron-like (black, heavy, solid but fragile) separate concretions containing mostly ammonites and bivalves. The fossils from the Panderi layer are grim, black, rough and depressive (in line with this winter).The zone is present throughout Moscow but becomes most accessible in the south-east. There are at least 5 spots along the river where you can collect them.
  23. Belemnite Preparation Tips

    I am wondering if anyone has any tips or guidance for preparing belemnite fossils. I found a bunch of them this weekend and would like to polish them so I can enjoy their orange color!
  24. Some kind of belemnite?

    I'm guessing it's a squid of some kind, but I didn't think they split diagonally? Pictures to come.
