  1. A perfect gift I reckon - I won this on the usual auction site a couple of weeks ago and was allowed to unwrap it today. It's a 22", 3.3lb Megateuthis suevica (formerly gigantea). (They do get longer, supposedly well over 30", even a yard. One day...) It's now probably the star attraction of my belemnite collection (roughly a thousand specimens). I have collected the same species in the UK but I've not heard of any reaching this sort of size here, about 14" being the maximum I know of. My longest Yorkshire coast one, 10", is shown in photo 3. Middle Jurassic, Bajocian, reportedly from the Subfurcatum Zone (they're usually Humphriesianum, the zone below), temporary roadworks near Osnabrück, N. Germany, 1985. With 10" Yorkshire, UK specimen from the Scarborough Formation.
  2. Nothosaur vertebra

    From the album Triassic vertebrate fossils

    A 4 cm long Nothosaur vertebra from a triassic "Bonebed" in a quarry in southern Germany (Baden-Württemberg): A picture of the unprepped vertebra: After a bit of prep: And finished:
  3. Nothosaur vertebra

    From the album Triassic vertebrate fossils

    A Nothosaur vertebra from a quarry in southern Germany (Baden-Württemberg). Its from a thin layer where you can find many bones and teeth from various animals (a triassic Bonebed). I found this one in 2018 but I finished prepping in this month. Its my biggest Nothosaur vertebra until now with a length of a little bit more than 6 cm. Overall the prep work took about 4 hours. A picture of the unprepped fossil: And prepped:
  4. L.S., To liberate storage space, I would like to offer the following plant fossils for trade. All specimens below come from the Late Carboniferous of the Piesberg quarry near Osnabrück (Germany). Scale on photographs in centimetres (1 inch = 2.54 cm). Specimens B, C, F and G show neuropterid fronds of various sizes (most likely Laveineopteris rarinervis). Note specimens B and G were recovered broken and have been glued/repaired. Specimen E is a large plate and shows reproductive structures of Calamites (E-1), a Laveineopteris frond (E-2), a strap-like Cordaites leaf, and some Annularia-like leaf whorls. If interested, I could also offer the counterpart of E. If preferable, I can cut specimen F to size (currently large slab of rock for the actual imprint). In general, please note that these specimens are rather large and heavy (I will cover the shipping costs, but you will need space to display these pieces). In return, I would be mainly interested in plant fossils from the Devonian to Cretaceous (but feel free to offer younger material also). Kind regards, Tim Specimen B: Specimen C: Specimen E: Specimen F: Specimen G:
  5. Nothosaur vertebra

    From the album Triassic vertebrate fossils

    A 5 cm long Nothosaur vertebra from a triassic "Bonebed" in a quarry in southern Germany (Baden-Württemberg). This one is kinda fragile so the prep work was hard. I often give up and tried it another time again. Here is an older state: And another picture of the current state:
  6. Nothosaur tooth

    From the album Triassic vertebrate fossils

    A 1 cm long Nothosaur tooth from a quarry in southern Germany (Baden-Württemberg). Nothosaur teeth are the second commonest kind of teeth after shark teeth in the triassic layer I hunt. Another picture:
  7. Acrodus tooth

    From the album Triassic vertebrate fossils

    A 0.8 cm long Acrodus tooth with a nice structure ! Those are very common in some layers in the "Bonebed" in a quarry in southern Germany (Baden-Württemberg) but bigger ones are quite rare. Another picture:
  8. Hybodus fin spine

    From the album Triassic vertebrate fossils

    This is a 10 cm long Hybodus fin spine from a triassic "Bonebed" in a quarry in southern germany (Baden-Württemberg). Here is the unprepped condition: You could only see the cross section: The prep work took about 4 hours. Two more pictures:
  9. German shark tooth ID

    Hey guys I saw this Triassic shark tooth from Satteldorf, Germany and I was wondering what it could be... Its around 1cm. Somebody mentioned lissodus but I have no clue... I appreciate the help. This is my only pic. Sorry. Regards

  11. Hi everyone, A couple days ago, during my stay in Berlin, I got to visit a very famous museum. The Natural History Museum of Berlin, of course! The expo's are amazing. I took so many pictures of everything! I'll only show a handful though, because I don't want to spoil the whole thing in case one of you has the opportunity to visit it. These are just some tasters to make you want to go there! Enjoy the quick virtual tour! Max
  12. Is this really a fossilized Egg?

    Hello everyone, quite a few years ago, I found the following "fossil?" but can´t remember if i found it in the Alps or at the Baltic sea, but probably at the second one. For me it looked like a fossilized Egg, so I kept it. For me the egg shell is clearly visible (also on the back) and also the "egg yolk" on the top. I couldn´t find anything similar on the Internet. Each space on the Background is 0.5 * 0.5 cm and the pictures show the object from above and the back. Can anyone help me identify it, should it really be an egg, age and animal would really interest me? Is it even a fossil or just some strange formed Mineral? Thank you in advance for everyone. I´m a complete amateur and every help is appreciated.
  13. Dear TFF members, I have bought a lot of fossils from Buttenheim, Germany, Lias epsilon. The seller said that there are bones and teeth, but there were no labels attached, so I need to ID them The first one comprises belemnites and? Brachiopods? Belemnite is 8 cm, potential brachiopods - 2, 3 cm in diameter. Then a piece with a paddle bone of Ichtiozaur? Potential paddle bone 1x1.5 cm. A bivalve? 1 cm A single vert - could be of Ichtiozaur? 6cm in diameter Then several pieces with teeth - of what? The smallest one is 0.5 cm, the biggest - 1.3 cm. Two pieces with bones? 3.5 cm and 4 .5 cm.
  14. Geesops schlotheimi

    From the album Trilobites

    Collected about 50 years ago from the classic "trilobite fields." Gerolstein, Eifel mountains in Germany, Ahrdorf Formation, Flesten Member. I'm told this site is no longer available for collecting.
  15. I was surprised to see this specimen for auction and pleased to win it. It's Anguloserra thomasi, a rare tooth from an ophiocistioid echinoderm and comes from the same locality as the holotype described here (abstract only): Haude & Langenstrassen 1976. I've been interested in these since finding three similar specimens in the UK that took a while to identify - shown in the next post. It's preserved as an impression - most material in this matrix is decalcified. Carboniferous, upper Mississippian, Culm beds (equivalent of Brigantian and Arnsbergian beds in UK), Aprath, Germany. Scale in mm. Here's the holotype from the linked paper (a latex cast):
  16. Green ammonite

    A nice block of ammonites from the Gräfenberg quarry. Although not very visible on the pictures, the ammonites are actually of a nice dark green, thanks to the glauconite present.
