I alreay posted my little hunt in Antwerp here. Beside that I also hunted on a few beaches near Cadzand. Its quite a popular location and there are many people, who are looking for shark teeth. But the quality of the shark teeth isnt that good compared to land sites. Here are some pictures of the beaches: I was mainly in Cadzand directly, in the area of Nieuwvliet but also on a beach near Vlissingen. Here is a picture of the beach near Vlissingen (De Kaloot): Some "in situ" pictures: + Doesnt look too bad Here is my haul: This was the biggest one with a length of 4 cm from Cadzand: I was very happy about this one: A 2.5 cm long Notorynchus primigenius I found it at the "Zwarte Polder" (near Cadzand) One of the best non-tooth-find was this ear bone of a dolphin: (about 3 cm long) My find werent that good but the season wasnt ideal. (too hot, too many people, not much wind ...) Nevertheless I am satisfied with my finds and hopefully next year I can find even more things Thanks for watching!
Last week I had a great time to hunt in the Netherlands/Belgium for shark teeth. I was mainly at a good site near Antwerp but those finds I will post in the next days. What i want to show you here are the teeth and other things, which I found on various beaches there. For example i was in Cadzand or in Vlissingen. Too bad the shark teeth dont really have a good quality but nonetheless I am happy with my finds But pictures say more than words... Zwarte Polder: There its very difficult to find shark teeth with a good quality and the beach is often full with tourists. The fossiliferous sand comes from the Westerscheide so from eroding layers underwater. The fossils come mainly from the Miocene, Pliocene until the Pleistocene. Here are some "shabby" finds: (shark and ray teeth) The shark teeth are also very small ... This tooth is with 1.2 cm one of the prettiest: A damaged Geleocerdo: Beside of the shark teeth i also found some fish vertebrates. The biggest one is 1.5 cm long:
The second part of my trip finds ... http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/68391-teeth-and-more-from-antwerp I was three times on a beach near Vlissingen, named "de kaloot" in the Netherlands. Its a very good location for collectors because its not that used for tourism. You can only collect there at low tide. I found some shark teeth, ray teeth, some bones and some bivalves. The shark teeth are normally very small and not that nice ... Here is my whole haul: The best tooth is this 2.8 cm long shark tooth (Please help to id this find): Another smaller tooth with a lenght of 1 cm is this one: I am not sure with the ID ... If you want i can take more detailed picture of the shark teeth ... I also found some bivalves like this three Glycymeris: A rare find was this Pectenid: (5 cm long) In contrast to the location in Antwerp i only found one bone: (13 cm long) Last but not least ... another good find: A big fish vertebra with a size of 4.5 cm ! Thanks for viewing ! Hope you enjoy
