  1. Fish & fossils

    Although we didnt realy plan for a fossil field trip, we did go to Boulogne sur mer yesterday to visit the aquarium "Nausica". and since the chalk cliffs of cap blanc nez are only 20min away from there we did make a stop for a couple of hours at the beach at the cliffs. I can recomend a visit to the aquarium to enyone who visit's the are, it is definitely worth a visit, although the entrence fee is quite expensive. On our visit at the beach we were only equiped with a small hammer, but lots of boulders shore were already broken through the waves and still deliverd quite a lot of fossils. I also picked up a pice of chalk with a bone fragment in it. this was something I haven't found there before, we are still prepping this to see what we can make out of it: Visit at the aqurium: the vieuw at the top of the "Grand Blanc Nez", You can see the UK from there Vieuw on the coastline: ammonite in the boulders: the finds: the mystery bone:
  2. Bone ID from the cenomanian chalk of France.

    I'm used to find ammonites and invertebrates, but this time I took home piece of chalk from the beach with a bone inside. I have totaly no Idea of what kind of bone this is or even from what kind of creature. I am still prepping the piece, but those are already the 1st few pictures. hopefully someone got more info on this: Cenomanian from cap-blanc-nez France ( marine chalk deposits)
  3. Albian ammonites

    last weekend on our field trip where we usually search for cenomanian ammonites we also found a few phosphate ammonites on the beach that were washed out on the beach from the lower albian layers. most of them were only fragments or encrusted with phosphate, but I managed to prep few of them with very good results: the specimen on the bottom of the picture: Anahoplites planus Hoplites sp. Euhoplites ochetonus
  4. I just spend the evening cleaning and preping some of the cephalopods I found last weekend. those are all from the cenomanian at the French coast. A couple of nautiloids ( Eutrephoceras sp. ) A couple of turrelites and a Manteliceras sp.
  5. Ammonite hunt in Northern France

    We are back from a very windy fieldtrip to Cap blanc Nez in France. The wind covered a lot of the rocks with sand and sea foam ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_foam ) which made fossil hunting rather difficult. We were helped by a local collector in the morning who guided us through the Turonian deposits of this site where we rarely colect, here we got 2 big ammonites. One of them was a Mamites nodosoides, this species as been on my wishlist for a while, so I am very happy with it In the afternoon we prospected the Cenomanian side. her we found the usual Mantelliceras and Scloenbachia ammonites. The prospecting site: ( we did see the coast of the UK on the other side of the channel ) Some of the ammonites we found: The Mammites: pictures of the prepped specimens will follow during the next week.
  6. this evening part 2 of the preppwork on the ammonites we found this weekend: Next up is a Schloenbachia varians of the Cenomanian of Cap blanc Nez in France: work in progres: the end result: the 2nd one of the evening was a Mantelliceras saxbii found by Natalie from the same location: The specimen is a little compressed and I thought that the center wasn't preserved, I was wrong. Work in progres: the end result: both specimens:
  7. This Saturday Natalie and I hit the road towards the jurassic and cretaceous clifs in the North of France. This is a 2h trip from where we live, so we left early to make most of the use of the favorible tides on those beaches. the 1st stop were the Titonian deposits near Wimereux, not the most easy place to find fossils, but with patience some nice fossils can be found. Th big problem although on this trip was the wind... this made it relatively hard to search for fossils. we did manage to find a couple of jurassic ammonites, one of them was more than 30cm in diameter but needs a lot of cleaning. In the afternoon we went to the beaches at the cretaceous clifs near Calais. here again the wind gave us a hard time blowing a lot of sand in the air. Although the harsh conditions we did find a few decent cenomanian ammonites, including a nice heteromorph turrilites sp. pictures of the Titonian deposits and finds: pics of the ammonites of the cretaceous site:
  8. Cap Blanc Nez - France

    Together with my father I went to Cap Blanc Nez in France last sunday. The weather was good, no wind and a beautiful clear sky. Ideal to go to Cap Blanc Nez. It's about an hour drive form where I live. The goal was to find my first ammonite since I have never found one before. I'm still a total noob at hunting fossils. Thanks to some tips from Mantoccerasman i finally found my first ammonites. And I'm very proud of it. Wonderful feeling to find those traces of life from million years ago. Wednesday I tried the preparation of the fossils I've found. It was the first time ever that I did this but I'm pretty proud of the result Most of the ammonites are probably Mantelliceras sp. A friend of mine did the determination of she oyster-like shell, it's an inoceramide sp.
  9. This Christmas I spent 4 days of fossil hunting with my girlfriend on the French coast. The planning was 2 days in Normandy at the "Vaches Noires" cliffs in villers sur mer and one day at Cap blanc Nez near Calais ( we finally extended the trip with one extra day near Boulogne sur mer ) Day 1: The first day we got at Villers sur mer after a 4h drive from home. Once at the cliffs we had to wait a little while since the tide wasn't low enough, but the beginning of the cliffs were already accessible. The fossil fauna was very variable, we found echinoid spines, echinoids, gastropods, bivalves ( lots of oysters like rastellum ) , ammonites ( mostly fragments ), brachiopods... Our best find of the day was a complete Cardioceras sp. Day 2 started with a visit to the local museum. in the afternoon we got back to the beach. Natalie found 2 ammonites, one of them was a really nice Euaspidoceras. On day 3 we went back North to Boulogne sur mer, here we looked through late Jurassic deposits. Day 4: The last day of our field trip, we visited the late cretaceous of "Cap Blanc Nez"
  10. A few new Cretaceous fossils in my collection

    Hey everyone Last week I went to a small mineral/fossil market/exhibition near Lille (northern France). The thing lasted the whole weekend (29th and 30th September) - I managed to get to it just a few hours before it closed. There wasn't much diversity in terms of fossils, but I did spot some rather neat stuff - including some cool vertebrate specimens Cephalic 'armour' of a small placoderm (don't really remember from where, tho... ) Well-preserved eurypterid from the Silurian of Ukraine Little array of dinosaur teeth from the Cretaceous of USA (I think the seller mentioned that they were from the Hell Creek Fm.) More dinosaur (and 1 pterosaur, bottom-left corner) teeth; including 2 Bothriospondylus teeth from Madagascar.. I'd have loved to buy them Well-preserved Keichousaurus from the Triassic of Guizhou province (China). I didn't only 'gawk' at the fossils, I also bought a few little things : 2 small ?Lepisosteus fish teeth from the Cenomanian (Cretaceous) of Cap Blanc Nez (coast of northern France) I'm rather pleased I bought this one... Associated cranial remains of a small frog (?Ranidae) from the Maastrichtian (Late Cretaceous) of the Hell Creek Formation (Montana, USA). Seller told me that stuff is fairly uncommon.. Well, that's it Hope you enjoyed this -Christian EDIT: The last item (thanks for pointing this out, @jdp!) is actually a Doleserpeton skull from the Permian of Oklahoma... not a Hell Creek Fm. frog skull -Apologies for any confusion
  11. Yesterday my girlfriend and I made a fieldtrip to the Northern French coast. The tides were ideal to search for the whole day in the late cretaceous chalk deposits of Cap Blanc Nez. The start was a bit slow, not a lot of fossils to be seen, but when going further up the beach the first ammonites started to apear. the result of the day where a few decent ammonites ( schloenbachia varians and Mantelliceras sp. ), a few shark teeth: Natalie found most of them and she found a spectacular cowshark teeth, the first one I ever saw from there. My find of the day was a small but complete Cymatoceras ( Nautilus )
  12. Bone fragment? Cap blanc nez, Albian, France

    Hi TFF friends, Last week I spend my holidays in france, and went fossil hunting at cap blanc-nez just after the hurricane David hit northern europe. As i walked in direction of wissant i found inside an albian formation(i think it is les sables vert, it is clay mixed with glauconite) the following objects. It is 8cm long for the biggest part, 2.5cm to 3cm large, 1cm at the thickest place. It is slightly curve and the cross section is a U shape.
  13. Cap Blanc Nez / Gris Nez

    Hello everyone! First post here, and eager to let you know that I will be going to the CĂ´te d'opale for the fourth time. The last two trips were dedicated fossil hunting trips, but this one will be a two day trip! This means that I will have time to look for a lot of fossils and minerals. I think we'll spend one day on CBN and one on CGN. However, I hope to get some last minute advice from you guys! Is there anyone who has found stuff there? What is the best place to look for trilobites and ammonites? What about minerals? We are also bringing a sieve, so we will be hunting for shark teeth too! But where should I use it? In the sand? In the little polished stones? Should I dig deep? Thank you in advance!
