  1. Our fossil hunting holiday trip

    Natalie81 and I are back from our fossil hunting holiday. On the 20th of july we left for a long camping and fossil hunting week in the UK, we took the ferry in Calais to Dover, drove to Porthsmouth and the 2nd ferry to our 1st stop: 5 days on the Isle of wight. the 1st day on the Island, we prospected the beaches on the the south west of the isle where the Wealden cliffs could deliver some dinosaur remains.We had no luck this time. the 2nd day we went to the southern part of the Island where we could find some cenomanian ammonites in the chalk. This time we had better luck, and we found lots of them and even a few nautiluses. There was a sealion in the water not far from where we were prospecting, but since it was yawning a lot I don't think he was very interested in our activities Day 3 was a stop in Yaverland, here we found some hybodont remains and a possible pterosaur tooth ( we will know for sure after the prep ), in the afternoon we went a bit further to Whiteclif bay where we found a few echinoids. Day 4 Back to those Wealden cliffs in search for dinosaur material, again in vain, but we did se al those impresive Iguanodon foottracks at Hanover point. later on the day we tried to find the lobster bed near Atherfield, but only a few parts were accesible, but I found a nice big lobster in situ, it came out in a few pieces. I had super glue in my backpack, so I glued the parts back together and stuffed the fossil safely away in a box with soft paper. It is still in that box now, so I hope it wil still be ok when I start prepping it. Day 5: we had a meetup with a local colector to prospect the beaches on the north of the island, those were Oligocene deposits and we did find a lot of turtle fragments, a few croc scutes and even a few croc teeth Day 6: we had our ferry back to the mainland of the UK, from there we drove further to the jurassic coast. In the afternoon we went on the Beach between Dorset and Lyme Regis, but the beaches were full of tourists looking for fossils, so the finds were poor. Day 7: we visited Eype, and Golden cap, not far from Dorset, again verry few finds due to overprospected beaches, but we did find a decent ammonite. In the evening We visited the town of Lyme Regis and the birthplace of Mary Anning Day 8: this time e went east of Dorset, still very few fossils to be seen, but still multiple good belemnites , some of them still in the matrix. Day 9: time to pack the tent and drive back to Dover, we still had time before taking our ferry back to France so we did a quick stop in Folkestone. 2 hours of prospecting in the gault clay did deliver 2 decent ammonites and lots of ammonite fragments, belemnites and inoceramus shells. I didnt take a lot of pictures of the fossils we found yet, but we took a few ones in the field. more pictures will follow when we start unpacking and prepping the fossils from this week. Shipping to Dover: vieuw on the camping from Wight: of to the beach: no fossils to be seen Lots of beach to prospect: Still looking for bone in the shingle: sunset on Wight: to the cenomanian chalk: ammonites the Sealion: possible pterosaur tooth: footprints Oligoceene deposits: A vieuw on Wight before we leave: Dorset and Lyme regis: Ammonites everywhere Mary Anning:
  2. Hi Everyone, I found this strange shaped object at Seatown, Dorset and was wondering if anyone thought it could be something of interest. It stood out from everything around it. It was in a number of sections. On some sections there is some sort of crust, there are what look like shells on another area and in when looking at a cross section of the broken parts there is a defined orange centre. Should I see if the grey material comes off easily? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks G.
  3. A few unidentified pieces

    Here are some things I was recently given I was wondering if anyone could help identify them thanks (: 1.belgian Echinoid and some sort of Ray tooth? 2.seed? 3,? 4serepulid worms ? 5pecten shell? 6. Fish Tooth?(Eocene I’m pretty sure)
  4. I was knocked out (figuratively) by this little nodule as soon as its finder and preparator posted it. It now sits prominently in my belemnite display cupboard. Belemnites are my main interest which is the official reason I wanted it, but for some specimens it's just love at first sight. It's a Nannobelus acutus (I think - it's not always straightforwards...). They're scarce in this subzone locally, and only very rarely crop up in classic Sinemurian ammonite nodules from Dorset. In fact, I know of only one other but I'm sure there are more out there. (At other levels, and elsewhere, it's a common belemnite.) The ammonites are mostly Cymbites sp. (little, sub-spherical things), with one Asteroceras cf. margaritoides visible (there's another hiding under the belemnite). I think it took vision to decide to prep this - cracked open, you'd just see common little ammonites and a broken belemnite which a lot of people might not bother with, but it's turned into one of the most aesthetic specimens in my collection. Lower Jurassic, Black Ven Mudstone Member. Obtusum Zone, Stellare Subzone, Charmouth, Dorset, UK Nannobelus: 4.5cm Asteroceras: 1.8cm Cymbites: 1cm down to 2mm - I love the hollowed apertures!
  5. planning ahead for a trip in the UK

    Natalie and I are planning our holiday to the UK, We are planning to reside from saturday 20 july to 24 july on the isle of Wight were we went last year. And from the 25th until the 28th we are planning to do either the coast of Sussex or Dorset. This is where the advise of the TFF members come in, what would you advise us to visit, either Dorset or Sussex. Of course if any member is free on one of those dates and is willing to guide us around this would be even better. We also take a bunch of Belgian fossils along for possible trades. (we are especially interested in cephalopods and marine reptiles/dinosaurs ) Cheers Kevin and Natalie

  10. Gastropudding

    I've mentioned in past threads that I occasionally do some prep work for a British paleontologist who hasn't the time to do the work himself. He always sends along some raw material from mostly southern English sites in exchange for the job. He knows that I like gastropods, so this time he included a nice rock, chock-a-block with various Pyrgotrochus species. Sort of like raisins in cookie dough. I didn't think (as often the case) to make a "before" photo, but I can at least show you the final result, with which I'm very pleased. 7 samples of Pyrgotrochus bessinus and P.macrocephali in a block 17x11x10cm. in size out of the sauzei zone, Early Bajocian from the region around Sherborne, Dorset.

  13. Ichthyosaur Paddle

    Hello, this is my first post Just wanted to share my most recent find from the Jurassic coast of Charmouth, Dorset UK. I found this pebble with what appeared to be bone, had it prepped and it has turned into an ichthyosaur paddle with ribs/gastralia and a couple ammonites! Best regards, Kam

    Any idea what this might be? Looks like it maybe some sort of tooth ? Shame it's missing the tip.
