  1. Found today on the English Yorkshire Coast ( Runswick bay). At first i thought it was maybe layers of a type of fossilised plant but I cant find anything to match the markings on this. Completely baffled by it. Looks very cool though. ID help, please?
  2. Weird fossil - what's dis den?

    Hello! I found this on the beach today. It's a great site for Belemnites, bivalves and the occasional Ammonite. The beach here is at the head of an estuary which enjoys big tidal surges. So many of the fossils have been washed along the coast from well known Jurassic sites like Whitby. They're usually ocean polished and removed from any cortex by the sea. So this little guy is about and Inch and half long. It looks like a lobster claw, but surely a fossil lobster claw wouldn't be this well preserved? It's definitely stone and gives a lovely "" noise when tapped against another stone. Any advice from you lovely people would be amazing
  3. Possible Fish Fin North York coast?

    Good morning guys! I’ve recently been exploring the coast of North York and found ammonites in abundence I also split open a rock to reveal what appears to be a fish fin of some sorts can anyone clarify this for me!? It would be greatly appreciated! I’ll also post some pics of the anmonites found and if anyone knows what species they are could you inform me please! Thanks for your time! Also sorry about the poor lighting of the ammonite picture Hope they can still be made out.
  4. I've also recently found what appears to be a large segment of fossilized bone combing the coast of Yorkshire at the bottom of a cliff. Could just be a rock with a similar shape for all I know but it looks like a fragment to a larger piece of bone. Any help would be greatly appreciated before I decide to discard it. Thanks guys!
  5. I had a free morning last weekend, so I drove out to Jalama beach. A while ago while searching for good places to fossil hunt near Santa Barbara I saw this post and since then have stopped by twice for a few hours each to crack rocks without any luck. This time I finally found myself a Jalama beach fish. It's not in good enough shape to identify (for me, anyway), but it's nice to finally get something. I had read that the south side of the beach is more fossil rich, so I walked south until I didn't see any people and then started working my way back. The fossil-rich layer is a beige layered rock. This link, referenced in the post that got me interested in Jalama beach, refers to this formation as "the diatom beds of Lompoc." The cleavage is extremely nice and it reminds me of the green river formation fossils you see around (although it seems the fish are usually smaller). Most of the rock in the cliffs is a reddish brown crumbly rock without many fossils, and the first time I came I wasted a bunch of time messing around with that. You definitely have to poke around a bit to find the fossil rich rocks. Anyway, I found the fish almost immediately, and didn't find anything else as I worked my way back for the rest of the morning. I think next time I'll try to go even further south. There are a lot of fragments of algae fossils around and I only picked one up because it looked kind of interesting- I haven't really put any effort into identifying it yet. If anyone else is thinking about going to Jalama beach, I highly recommend bringing along a sharp flat chisel (see picture). I bought rectangular knife stock on Amazon and then sharpened it. It definitely helps in getting the rock to break along a plane instead of shattering, which is usually what happens with a regular geology hammer. Also, if you'd like some company I'd be happy to hunt with someone else, I don't really know anyone else in the area that does this.
  6. Is this a vertebra?

    Id be very grateful for an ID, found loose on the coast of Yorkshire, evidence of a recent cliff fall. Area known for mesozoic finds, ammonites, ichthyosaur finds etc. length just over 6cm, circumference -widest bit- just over 16 cm. If it is bone, like a vertebra, how do i care for it? Thanks.
  7. What is this?

    Hi everyone. This is my first request for an ID, I'm a complete newbie with limited knowledge but very eager to learn. This might be nothing, but I thought it was strange. Found loose on a Yorkshire beach (UK) unsure whether it was washed up by the sea or came away in a cliff fall. Area known for ammonites/Mesazoic/Jurassic finds. Measures approx 9cm in length, 18 cm circumference.
  8. Can you tell what these are please?

    Hi all I know nothing about fossils but have been tasked with finding out what two fossils are. Please see image attached. Are they ammonites? They were found in Pembrokeshire. Many thanks in advance for your help.
  9. Mystery Beach Pebble

    Hi everyone, A friend has asked me to post this rather beautiful mystery rock for ID, it was found by a friend of his on the Norfolk Coast UK. Unfortunately that's all the info I have on it with regards to find locality. My friend is thinking its biological in origin but I'm pretty convinced its something geological, it reminded me of cross bedding in sandstones and I came across some diagrams of cross trough bedding that seem to show an identical pattern but I cant seem to find any good photos of real examples. Any suggestions much appreciated! Regards, Sam
  10. Suspected modern bone

    While i was on the beach today near whitby i found this bone. I didnt bother taking it because i’m sure its modern, but i’m still curious. Is it a chicken leg bone from someones bbq?
  11. This leaf was found in the same location as glossopteris leaves. Is this anything different?
  12. France coast beed?

    Found this on a beach near Sete, France
  13. Megalodons in Virginia

    I'm heading to Richmond Virginia tomorrow and will be there for 5 weeks for work. Wondering where are some good spots to find some shark teeth and hopefully some nice Megalodons. Have any of you guys had any lunch over that way? Any information is much appreciated
  14. Maybe a cetacean

    Hello. I found this piece the other day, and I think it's some kind of vertebra. What do you think? The coin is big, about 1 inch. The surface has small porous. The interior is solid. The weight is about 6 kg = 12 lb. I found it about 250 m above sea level, and 2 km from the coast, in a place with a lot of small marine fossil.Is it a cetacean ?. Thanks!
  15. Trip to Saltburn

    Took a family trip to Saltburn yesterday, just up from where we normally go (Redcar) and made some discoveries, one of which looks like a nautiloid. I made a video of that last one, the possible nautiloid:
  16. Is it even a fossil?

  17. South Croatia coast finding

    Hi, This is a picture in situ of my finding, that I could not identify. I would be grateful for any suggestions.
  18. Complete Tiny Lizard Or Paperweight?

    This little specimen actually found me as I walked the shoreline somewhere between Manhattan Beach, CA and San Diego, CA. (It's been 20 years so . . .) But I do remember the tide was rolling out. The waves literally washed it over my feet but I was able to grab it before it rolled back into the sea again. After sitting in a dark closet for 17 years I finally took a serious look at it and realized it was probably something special. But instead of passing it around for a professional opinion, I chose to display it on my desk. Every single day for 3 years I looked at and studied this little guy; and so did anyone else who walked into my office. Without fail, everyone is fascinated. What I See: About the size and shape of a jumbo egg, perhaps a little larger. The entire body of the lizard is completely wrapped around the sphere with the top half its body on one long side and the bottom half of its body literally wrapped around to the other long side. On the top half; the skull, upper body and one arm is visible but the other arm appears to be hidden underneath the body. The opposite side shows both legs completely stretched out and clearly defined with its bones, joints and even a foot visible. There appears to be something attached to the spine that looks like it could be a tail. It too wraps around the entire sphere. But what I find most fascinating is the flesh and outline of its entire body are extraordinarily clear! My Take: It looks like an egg with a complete lizard embryo inside. It's outer shell long worn away after spending millions of years being churned and thrown around by the ocean. I've been calling it "My Little Lizard Friend" for a few years now. But I was really hoping someone here could tell me its proper name, age, etc. Thank a bunch. I'm just a wannabe but loving every minute of it.
  19. I figured it was a mollusk, but my knowledge of such is very limited. I have made a shot in the dark that it is Gryphea? But I am unsure if it would even fit the time period (Miocene) or the location of the Astoria Formation in Oregon. Please put any guesses you may have even if they seem totally wrong. By the way Its glossy texture is due to a coating i put on it due to its tendency to flake off pieces, not the fossils look.
  20. Pleistocene unknown

    This piece was found in southeastern Maine. The last thing on my mind at the time was any sort of fossil. The area is granite ledges split by basalt dykes interspersed by cobble beaches of similar rock type. My turning point on the trip was the end of a cove that is pounded especially hard by the winters storms. The cobble is piled 20 feet high in a wall 60 feet wide at the base across the cove. As I got back slightly in the lee of some boulders I noticed the snail in what I recognized as the Pleistocene clay of the Presumpscot formation. I only noticed the other side after I got it home. It's not mineral. Fails a tap test miserably. The snail is on the under side in the other photos. What the heck is this thing ?
