  1. Woolly Rhino Toe Bone

    Hi everyone, this will be the first of several ID requests this week as I'm getting around to sorting through and packing away my fossils from my trip out west and there are plenty of oddities. However, the first piece I'll post does not come from the dry American west, rather from the bottom of the North Sea in the Brown Banks area. I got this "coelodonta toe bone" yesterday at the East Coast Gem, Mineral and Fossil Show and wanted to make sure it was a correct identification and not something like bison, aurochs or horse. It's just under 3 inches long and over an inch wide.
  2. My Woolly Rhino 2018

    It has been a few years since I posted an update on my woolly rhino composite skeleton. Due to regulation change, not a whole lot of bones are fished out of the North Sea these days. So I haven't gotten many new bones in recent years. But last week I got a whole bunch of extra bones so I got the rhino out of the many boxes I have it stored in for the most time and so it's time for another progress update. For those who've missed my previous posts. I have been collecting wooly rhino (coelodonta antiquitatis) bones for over a decade now ever since I got a few leg bones for my birthday. One thing spiraled into another and before I knew it I was trying to make a complete skeleton. Almost all the bones are from the North Sea where only isolated bones are ever found. So none of the bones have any context, which is why a composite skeleton is the only option. Of course this brings it's own problems, besides spending years trying to find all the correct bones, but also getting bones that actually match nicely. So some bones aren't an exact match but every once in a while I replace bones that don't match that good with better ones. And by now I have just over a hundred bones plus change for the extra bones I have doubles for. The skeleton is quite massive. Woolly rhinos were around the same size as modern African rhinos. Carrying over a hundred rhino bones up and down the stairs was also a good workout The only bone that isn't real is the skull, which is a replica cast. Only two bones come from different locations, one from a quarry in the Netherlands and the other from Hungary. All the other bones come from the North Sea. The neck is complete and I'm only missing one dorsal vertebra. I've got a partial sacrum with the front missing. I don't have any tail vertebrae. I've got a few ribs but not nearly enough and two large hip fragments. I've got all the big long bones except for the fibulae and one shoulder blade. By now I've got the hands fairly complete. I've got all the wrist bones, all the metacarpals. The phalanges however are harder to get and I don't have any unguals. On the hind legs I now also recently got the kneecaps as well as a few missing ankle bones. I'm only missing two ankle bones on both feet. I got all the metatarsals and the phalanges here are a similar story, I have the first phalanges, and one of the second. But again, no unguals. A beautiful humerus that now replaced a less complete dinky humerus. Left front hand of the rhino and my right foot for scale. And lastly there's this really nice nasal fragment where the horn would attach in life. It's just a small fragment, but the preservation is really quite nice. Some of the sutures can also be seen really nicely.

  4. Woolly rhino molar

    From the album @Max-fossils 's Zandmotor Finds

    An awesome woolly rhino molar, of the species Coelodonta antiquatis. Though the chewing surface is slightly damaged, this is so far my best Zandmotor find!
  5. Woolly Rhino molar

    A nice lower molar of the woolly rhino, found on the Zandmotor. Note that the chewing surface is slightly damaged. Found as beach float, from offshore deposits.
  6. A successful Zandmotor hunt!

    Hello everyone! Saturday, I went hunting again at the Zandmotor. Even though it is only 25 min away by car from my house, I don't get to hunt there often. First off, a small introduction to the Zandmotor: The Zandmotor is a big beach extension between Kijkduin and Ter Heijde, and it is made by man. The fossils found there are mainly seashells (clams and cockles), which fill the beach, and also mammal bones, which most people search for (most just ignore the seashells, which leaves more for a seashell-lover like me ). Sometimes great white shark teeth are found too, but they are the only species of shark found at the Zandmotor (from what I heard); it's a mystery as to how the shark teeth got there. All the fossils date from the Pleistocene to the Holocene periods (so they are relatively young). The reason that fossils can be found there is because the fossils got dredged up from the North Sea, which is very rich in fossils; the case is similar for the Maasvlakte 2 and the Hoek van Holland, two other locations on the Dutch coast. The Zandmotor actually just looks like any other normal sandy beach, and many people just use it as such. In fact many people that regularly go on the Zandmotor ignore that fossils can be found! The Zandmotor is also a popular place for taking your dog out for a walk. Now my trip report: When we arrived, it was still rather cloudy, but at least it wasn't raining and there was little wind. We did put on our fat coats and were well prepared to face the cold. The small crash of the waves and the squawk of the seagulls filled the air. In the background, the harbor could be seen. Lucky for us, the weather quickly cleared up and gave way to a nice blue sky.
  7. Woolly Rhino Composition Skeleton 2016

    From the album Mammal Fossils

    An update on my woolly rhino skeleton composite project. I have over 80 bones now. Only the skull is a replica. All other bones are real. The bones are from the North Sea, Netherlands. This photo is from the beginning of the year. By now I also have a shoulder blade. I'm mainly still missing the hooves, many ribs and the tail vertebrae.

  10. Woolly Rhino Composition Skeleton 2013

    From the album Mammal Fossils

    A project I've been working on for years. The bones are from different individuals, though all bones are from the North Sea. There are still a load of bones I need for a complete skeleton. But over the years I've come a long way. The neck is complete and I have maybe 30% of the legs and feet, hip fragments of both sides and maybe 20% of the back.
