  1. 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
  2. Mary Anning short film

    A Mary Anning short film will be aired at @underwirefest this November 2018. The trailer is here :
  3. 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!
  4. Ichthyosaur Vertebrae

    From the album Ichthyosaur Finds

    A good sized Vertebrae i found yesterday.
  5. 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!
  6. Ichthyosaur vertebrae

    I've found these vertebrae on England's Jurassic Coast over a period of fourteen years (I like to think I'd have found more but I only get to visit Lyme Regis once every 2 years) I believe them to all be ichthyosaur vertebra and I was just wondering if everyone agreed. Also the largest one seems more detailed and of a different colour, being a sandy brown rather than black. I was wondering why? I can supply extra pictures of the largest.
  7. Ichthyosaur

    Hello, A recent find of ours. I've been told by someone knowledgeable in this area that it's a Disarticulated lower Ichthyosaur jaw ( the long bones on the back) It's been scavenged after death so everything is scattered. On the otherside are other bones, shells and what look to be 5 teeth. Other Side with Teeth Close up of what look to be teeth, I've circled them in red.
  8. Ichthyosaur stomach contents

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Cross sections of the stomach, full of squid/cephalopod hooks and beaks, of an early Jurassic ichthyosaur (Stenopterygius quadriscissus). One slice has the animals ribs, the lighter tan objects, around the stomach, while the other is entirely of the stomach contents.
  9. Ichthyosaur sp. sclerotic ring section

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Sclerotic ring section of large unspecified ichthyosaur species, from a Somerset Jurassic site(aprx 205 mya)
  10. Ichthyosaur rib

    From the album Holzmaden

    This is a 10 cm long part of an Ichthyosaur rib from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. As you can see its kinda damaged. Firstly it was already damaged as i found it and secondly the preparation wasnt optimal as well. Normally you prep these bones from Holzmaden with air abrasive but I only have an air pen. So I damaged it a bit further.
  11. Does anyone have, or have seen, small marine reptile's stomach contents? I'm specifying small because what I'm wondering about is of those that eat primarily and mostly squid. Ive been trying to find pictures, but I can't find anything thats close-up enough to see any details at all. Just like from a full picture of a full-body ichthy plate, which is way too far out to see the apparently stomach contents. *i don't mean corprolites, but actual impressions of the stomach contents
  12. Ichthyosaur Alert!

    I’ve been super excited to finally find my own marine reptile fossil and today i’ve done just that and i’m chuffed! Found this near Whitby in Yorkshire. Low tide was at about 6pm so I was waiting for the water to go out so I could get round. Lucky I was the first person. The vert is very waterworn and damaged, but Im not bothered. I’ve had my eye out for awhile and am very happy to find one, hopefully the first of many..
  13. What the heck?

    Found this today at Purse State Park, MD. Is this an ichthyosaur tooth? A whale tooth? I have nooooooooo idea.
  14. Amateur fossil finds

    Hey, I’ve finally spent some time on the Jurassic Coast the last few days around Portland, Lulworth Cove and Lyme Regis / Charmouth beach and thought I would share what I’ve found. Not loads but my own first fossil which I’m pretty proud of even if it’s tiny lol! It’s part of a infant ichthyosaur neck vertebrae if I’m correct. Also some photos of Ammonite imprints on some big rocks and a rock I found and broke open with an ammonite imprint and possible tooth imbedded in it? Also random photos of not sure what lol let me know please what you think.
  15. Ichthyosaur skull bones

    This piece was found by me two years ago in the Kromer Quarry near Holzmaden and was prepped by Roger Furze ( @Ludwigia ). On the piece you can see a disarticulated Ichthyosaur skull with some ribs and vertebrae. You can see one eyehole very good, although the eye itself isn't preserved. Isolated bones are not that rare in Holzmaden but such pieces are very rare! It could be a skull of a juvenile.
  16. Ichthyosaur skull bones

    From the album Holzmaden

    This fossil was found by me two years ago in the visitor quarry Kromer near Holzmaden and was prepped by Roger Furze ( @Ludwigia ). Thanks again On the piece you can see a disarticulated Ichthyosaur skull with some ribs and vertebrae. You can see one eyehole very good, although the eye itself isnt preserved. Isolated bones are not that rare in Holzmaden but such pieces are very rare ! At the maximum the piece is about 24 cm long. Unprepped: Prepped: The eyehole is very good visible: (Probably my favourite part ) The other eyehole: Some more bones: A vertebra: This one could be from a juvenile which is very rare!

  18. Ichthyosaur tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A small (1 cm long) Ichthyosaur tooth from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic).
  19. Stomach fossil????

    This is a fossil from Guizhou. One could see some bones belonging to ichthyosaur but there is another more puzzling thing there, it looks like a stomach, even with seemingly partially digested ammonites (not the intact one nearby). Any idea if it is really a stomach fossil?
  20. A few weeks ago I sent Roger ( @Ludwigia ) a piece with some bones from Holzmaden. In exchange of some money and some fossils from Zwingelhausen he prepped it for me! Already in the unprepped condition I had the suspicion that it might be a skull or at least a part of a skull. Only a few bones were visible first. Unprepped stone: I found this one in 2016 in the visitor quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Its about 23 cm long. The prep work was very difficult, because the stone was so hard. It took about 12 hours. But nevertheless Roger did a great job and I am very happy about the result Here are two pictures of the finished piece: As you can see its really a part of an Ichthyosaur skull It might be a juvenile but I am not sure You can see the eyehole very good, although its a shame that the eye itself isnt preserved:
  21. Triassic Ichthyosaurus sp.

    From the album Dinosaurs and Reptiles

    Ichthyosaurus sp. (?) ichthyosaur tooth. Many thanks to @nala for this and other awesome teeth!
  22. It pains me to see a resurgence of Chinese scammers on Facebook, WeChat and Instagram, as business must be good. I've been scammed by them, and so have several people I know. The fossils they advertise are incredible to the point where many of us are tempted. Here, take a look at pics taken from the walls of several confirmed-scammers. Looks amazing, doesn't it? Their price are pretty awesome too, so off you go, transferring $1000 USD to their Western Union, and.... nothing. Your money is gone forever. Here are some warning signs of the Chinese scammers. I will say it again: If these Chinese sellers refuse to use Paypal, be on guard. It doesn't matter how many likes and mutual friends they share with you, scammers can make attractive accounts and add a thousand friends just to look trustworthy. Right now, there's a scammer Facebook account that shares over 100 mutual friends with me. Someone posted on his wall complaining of a scam, and the seller removed it within a day. Check the seller's track records. Ask friends and trusted collectors if any of them have ever made successful dealings with the seller. Keichousaurus does not count! I know a case where a friend bought a single cheap Keich from someone on Instagram, and the same seller then went out to scam others with far more expensive fossils after getting the seal of approval from the first guy. Also, take note not all of them admit to being from China. I know a scammer who claims to be from USA. His fossil pictures are similar to other Chinese scammers. When my friend pretended to make a purchase, this seller gave a Chinese address for Western Union, and an Alipay account pointing to a Chinese name too. For more info, please refer to this previous thread > Remember, if it's too good to be true, it probably isn't. If you have any doubts or questions, please feel free to ask others on TFF. There are many experts here who can offer you advise. If you require more info on these scammers, feel free to PM me.
