  1. 5 Articulated Vertebras

    From the album Prepped ichthyosaur finds

    Found by me, polished to show the detail.
  2. I found a block packed full of bone afew week back, but also full of pyrite. I thought it was just full of fish bone, which is quite common and i often leave it but luckily shoved it in my bag. Yesterday I picked it up and decided to have a dig around in it and was pleasantly surprised to find some ichthyosaur verts! So i suspect it's a mix of fish and Marine reptile, or just all ichthyosaur (Hopefully) Does anybody have any tips for prepping bone in pyrite. I'm probably just going to have a dig around and see what i can uncover, smooth it down with the dremel and add some coating to the bone to bring it out. It's Good practice for me but it's wearing my pen tip down haha. Hopefully there will be more verts to find! There's certainly more space to uncover more. Vert cross section on the bottom Ribs? on the bottom
  3. Ichthyosaurs!

    https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/2018/12/incredible-jurassic-ichthyosaur-fossil-preserves-skin-blubber/ @LiamL @belemniten
  4. On Sunday I took a trip to the Natural History Museum in London. I queued up before it opened at 10am and even before then there was a long queue. I have not visited this museum since I was a child and spent an entire day there (10am to 4.30pm - a long time). I was surprised as it is a lot bigger than I remembered and there was so much to see. This place has the most wonderful things and is an incredible place to learn. The museum showcases a Baryonyx, Sophie the Stegosaurus (the world's most complete Stegosaurus) and more! The moving Trex and Deinonychus are also really realistic in the way they move. If you like your dinosaur teeth, the Megalosaurus and Daspletosaurus teeth are out of this world! There is something for everyone in this museum and I would highly recommend that you visit here if you have not already! A lot of the dinosaur specimens are casts taken from other museums but they are still cool to look at. I had taken the photos on my SLR and due to the size of the photos I had to reduce the quality of them to be able to post on the forum which is unfortunate but it's the only way otherwise the photos would take a really long time to load. There are more non-dinosaur related photos that I will be posting at some point later on but may take me some time to pick out. Enjoy the photos from this section of the museum! Blue Zone Dinosaurs (has a mix of some photos of crocs too)

  7. Ichthyosaur vertebra

    From the album Holzmaden

  16. 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.
  17. Some bones from Mistelgau

    Recently I visited a clay pit near Mistelgau in Bavaria. It's a kinda famous quarry because of the "belemnite battle field". Huge plates with hundreds/thousands belemnites come from there. But you can also findother fossils like ammonites and also bones. I already was there a few times and I mainly found ammonites and of course belemnites. But this time I also found some bones in the area of the Belemnite battle field. They were just laying therebut it was kinda difficult to find them because they are round, Belemnites are round etc. so I more or less crawled through the quarry So here are two picture of the quarry: The typical ground there: Lots of belemnites, some ammonites and very rare other fossils like bones. I found two types of bones. Firstly Ichthyosaur paddle bones: Here is a picture of all the paddle bones I found (unprepped): Mostly they were kinda small but I was able to find a nice one with a length of 3 cm: And here is another detailed picture of a small one (1cm)
  18. Lyme Regis Trip

    Hi All, Spent a few days down on the Devon/Dorset coast with family. Plan was to fish and fossil hunt over the period. Got to Lyme Regis nice and early on the Friday and still didn't beat the crowds. Found a few Pyrite Ammonites (of which the photos i will attach later) but nothing else of major significance. Went back on the Saturday and had a rummage around in the loose material on the beach slightly away from the crowds. Found a single Ichthyosaur vertebra under a large rock, then a small piece of paddle bone in a rock pool, and lastly and my favourite half a larger vertebra with other bones in matrix just laying out in the open!! To say i was happy is an understatement! It was very busy down there so i think i got very lucky to find these. Apologies there is no scale on them. Hopefully my hand will suffice! I am planning to get the larger find prepped to remove some of the matrix, if anyone can recommend someone in the UK who can do it that would be brilliant, please send me a message. Thanks for reading.
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. A recent Yorkshire, England find of mine, prepped by Mark Hawkes. There are 3 perfect verts, neural arch still connected and a rib. Also bits of verts of either side. Originally i found this in a water rolled stone with just one worn vert showing on the outside, but the contents inside were beautiful
  22. Mary Anning short film

    A Mary Anning short film will be aired at @underwirefest this November 2018. The trailer is here :
  23. My ichthyosaur paddle section has just come back from prep. i am waiting on another similar sized paddle section from the same Ichthyosaur which is being prepped, will look great together even though they wont fit. Here are the pictures, i think it looks stunning!
  24. Ichthyosaur Vertebrae

    From the album Ichthyosaur Finds

    A good sized Vertebrae i found yesterday.
  25. Yesterday when i was walking back from an unsuccessful collecting tip i spotted this beauty laying half buried on a beach near Whitby! Before this point i'd only found one icthyosaur vert, and it was very worn, and half broken. So i'm extremely happy with the preservation on this one!
