Hello dear users of the Fossil Forum! Please help me to identify the fossil. I'm inclined to think it's a cuttlefish Gladius. Am I right? LOCATION: Russia, Volgograd city area GEOLOGY: Upper Cretaceous Series, Maastrichtian ASSEMBLAGE: the Finds in this place are shark teeth: Squalicorax pristodontus (Agassiz, 1843), Pseudocorax affinis Agassiz, 1843, Palaeohypotodus bronni (Agassiz, 1843), Cretolamna appendiculata (Agassiz, 1843) DISCOVERY: the Gravel bed. Thank you. https://youtu.be/Rt_Cqyl0yA8
Found this unusual fossil in cretaceous marine sediments in Richmond Central Queensland it has been ID as a Cuttlefish( Vampyromorpha sp. ) i can find very little infomation about these if anybody as anymore info that would be great.
After my visit last week (http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/86063-my-little-trip-to-solnhofen/) This time I was at the visitor quarry in Solnhofen. It was very hard work and it was too hot but the finds arent too bad Its a pity that I couldnt find a fish but nevertheless I found some interesting things! Two pictures of the quarry: A beautiful 4 cm long Laevaptychus: A cuttlefish remain: with nice details (6 cm long): And my finds of the day: Two teeth Teeth arent that common in Solnhofen I assume, so I must had some serious luck The first one is 1.5 cm long and it seems to be a crocodile tooth. I think its a Steneosaurus tooth: I like the root The second isnt that big with a length of 0.7 cm. I cant determine this one... Maybe also a crocodile tooth? Maybe someone can help me a bit with determining? Thanks for your help! Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
