  1. Ichthyosaur vertebra

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 3.5 cm long Ichthyosaur vertebra from the Posidonia shale from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Another picture:
  2. I wasnt very active recently so sorry for that. But the last weeks I was several times hunting for fossils in the quarry Kromer in Holzmaden (Germany) and in this thread I want to show you some things I found there. As some of you know may know I am mainly interested in marine reptile fossils so most of the finds are marine reptile bones and teeth ... So firstly some teeth. I actually found a lot of them but these are the best ones I found this year: A 2 cm long Steneosaurus tooth (crocodile): Another Steneosaur tooth with a length of 1,8 cm: And the last 1.2 Steneosaur tooth: I also found some Ichthyosaur teeth. Here is one of the nicest from this year: Besides of several teeth I also found some bones. Ichthyosaur bones are the most common type of bones there so I found mainly Ichthyosaur material. Especially I found many ribs but they are mostly not prepped yet. Here is just one little example: Its about 10 cm long. I didnt found many vertebrae this year but here is a pretty neat one with a length of about 3.5 cm: A bit rarer is this little Steneosaur (crocodile) vert: I am really happy that I can say that I found some pterosaur material this year. As these are marine deposits you may can imagine that pterosaur bones and teeth are very very rare. Here is a little 6 cm long and very worn pterosaur bone: Another pterosaur bone: This one is about 11 cm long. I didnt saw that one in the quarry Kromer but I took the stone with me because of a tooth on the other side of the stone so I was very pleased as I turned the stone around at home The next one is probably my favourite find of the year until now: These are also pterosaur bones (the big one might be a humerus?) Some more pictures of the same piece: And last but not least this find: I am actually not sure what it is. Might be pterosaur bone too ( maybe a Scapula?) or another possibility would be a bone from the skull but its kinda difficult to determine isolated bones ... Still many bones and teeth to prep and the year is still young so lets see what I can find/reveal! I hope you like some of my finds and thanks for watching
  3. Ichthyosaur vertebra

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 2.5 cm long Ichthyosaur vertebra from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic, Posidonia Shale). Here is a picture of the unprepped cross section: It took about 3 hours to prep this one. Some more pictures:
  4. Recently you could find "many" bones and teeth in a "Bonebed" in a quarry near Buttenheim in Germany. Too bad I was a bit too late to search in this Bonebed. As I was there it was still possible to find something but the layer was buried under about 1 meter dirt. So I couldn't really find something there. All bones and teeth come from the Toarcian. This thread of @Kasia inspired me to buy some teeth and bones from there too. So thank you for the inspiration Here are my acquirements: I bought three Steneosaurus (crocodile) teeth: The first one is about 1. 3 cm long: Detailed: The next one is a big one with a length of 2 cm. This one was found in Altdorf: The last one is damaged and small (0.8 cm long) Beside of these Croc teeth I also bought some Ichthyosaur material from there: A 1.1 cm long tooth which could be quite nice if someone didn't glued it that bad... I am not sure what I will do with this one because there seems to be another tooth in the matrix and I will maybe try to break it and glue it a bit better. Too bad the teeth are extremely fragile so I am not sure what I will do... And another small Ichthyosaur tooth with a length of 0.6 cm: And last but not least three small Ichthyosaur vertebrae: All three are a bit bigger than 2 cm. All in all I have to say that I am quite satisfied with my purchase expecially because I didn't had to pay too much money for them. Thanks for viewing
  5. Ichthyosaur vertebra

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 2 cm long Ichthyosaur vertebra from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Posidonia Shale). Some more pictures: I personally like the color on this one!
  6. Ichthyosaur vertebra

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 3 cm long Ichthyosaur vertebra from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. The preparation was kinda hard because at the beginning you could only see the cross section: And here is another picture of the prepped vert:
  7. Partial Ichthyosaur Vertebra (found 2014)

    From the album Fossils From Lyme Regis And Charmouth

    Collected between Lyme Regis and Charmouth in Dorset, England. Charmouth Mudstone Formation. About 195-190 Ma.
  8. In this thread I wanna share some fossils from Holzmaden, which I found partly years ago but prepped recently with my new tools. I will not show only bones but also belemnites and other fossils from Holzmaden. All the finds are from the quarry Kromer. Hopefully I will be able to extend this thread step by step! So for today I want to show three bones from the posidionia shale from Holzmaden. Firstly this 3 cm long Ichthyosaur vertebra. Here is a picture of the unprepped piece: As you can see there was only the cross section visible so it was a kinda hard work. I think until now the prep took about 2 hours and I will probably prep it a bit more... but here is a picture of the current state of the vertebra: I am very satisfied with the result until now! Especially because I didn't lost too much of the fossil material in the areas where I had to glue it.
  9. A little Ichthyosaur vertebra

    Today I finished prepping a little Ichthyosaur caudal vertebra from Holzmaden. Too bad I didn't took any pictures of the unprepped vert but I did a lot I prepped it with my air pen and with my new sandblasting machine. I am very happy about this tool Here it is: It's very small with a length of 1.2 cm. Hope you like it
  10. Ichthyosaur vertebra

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 1.2 cm long Ichthyosaur caudal vertebra from the quarry Kromer in Holzmaden (Posidionia shale, Lower Jurassic). Some more pictures: The prep took about 1 hour and I used an air pen and a sandblasting machine.
  11. Ichthyosaur Vertebra a.jpg

    From the album MY FOSSIL Collection - Dpaul7

    Ichthyosaur Vertebra SITE LOCATION: Weymouth Harbour, Dorset, United Kingdom TIME PERIOD: Middle Jurassic (160 Million Years) Ichthyosaurs (Greek for "fish lizard" ) are large marine reptiles. Ichthyosaurs belong to the order known as Ichthyosauria or Ichthyopterygia ('fish flippers' – a designation introduced by Sir Richard Owen in 1840, although the term is now used more for the parent clade of the Ichthyosauria). Ichthyosaurs thrived during much of the Mesozoic era; based on fossil evidence, they first appeared around 250 million years ago (Mya) and at least one species survived until about 90 million years ago, into the Late Cretaceous. During the early Triassic period, ichthyosaurs evolved from a group of unidentified land reptiles that returned to the sea, in a development parallel to that of the ancestors of modern-day dolphins and whales, which they gradually came to resemble in a case of convergent evolution. They were particularly abundant in the later Triassic and early Jurassic periods, until they were replaced as the top aquatic predators by another marine reptilian group, the Plesiosauria, in the later Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. In the Late Cretaceous, ichthyosaurs became extinct for unknown reasons. Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Reptilia Order: †Ichthyosauria
