  1. A new fieldtrip to the coast of northern France this Saturday. In the morning we prospected the beaches with Jurassic deposits whit a few friends. Not an easy place to look for fossils, but Natalie fond a large Ichthyosaur vert and I found a neat little echinoid in the shingle. At noon our local friends hat to go, so Natalie and I made a stop a little more up North on our way home. We went to the beaches at the chalky Cretaceous cliffs. Here we had a lot of luck, the sea had cleaned up the cliff falls that had occurred a few weeks back. In a short amount of time we managed to find around 6 complete Acanthoceras ammonites scattered on the beach. Time to hit the prep table again The jurassic ( Titonian ) site: The Cretaceous ( Cenomanian )site Prepping pictures will follow
  2. Lyme Regis Ichthyosaur

    Hi all, Just thought I'd share my ichthyosaur which I discovered near Lyme Regis in Dorset, UK. Best fossil I've ever found! Cheers, Matt
  3. Ichthyosaurus limb bone from Guizhou

    This is a limb bone of ichthyosaurus from Xingyi, Guizhou. Any idea if it is a hind or front limb? And is it possible to tell the species?
  4. 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
  5. Hello, I recently found a guy who has offered to sell me this complete Ichthyosaurus and a Keichousaurus and I was wondering if you guys see any Red Flags. It’s from China but he didn’t specify. I don’t see anything too obvious but I wanted some of your guys’s thoughts. Regards, indominus rex
  6. Ichthyosaurus bones in slate?

    Hi, I saw this slate from Holzmaden,Germany,where many many ichthyosauruses remains have been found,online being sold as « ichthyosaurus bones » Are they really bones? I can see some possible structure but I’m not sure... I never saw any 2D bones like that in a slate. What do you think? Here are the picture I have. Is it rare if it is??? Regards

  8. Hello all, here are our fossils collection from Jurassic Lias. Enjoy it ! Ichthyosaurus (Temnodontosaurus) rostrum Size: ~ 100mm (Height), ~ 77mm (Lenght), ~ 52mm (Width) / Tooth Size: ~ 34mm x 11mm
  9. What is this Vertebra I got

    Hi I would like to identify this vertebra I bought on an auction site. It is from France (Pas-De-Calais). I think it might be from an Ichthyosaurid allthough it is quite big and thick (8,5cm diameter and 4,5cm wide) My second guess is Plesiosaurid. Feel Free to share any details and thank you for leaving comments Thomas

  20. Some serious dental work !

    Because of private reasons i didnt post much lately but now i found some time to post my teeth-finds from last Sunday in Holzmaden. There were lots of good-looking material and the weather was great ! Best circumstances to collect I was about 3 or 4 hours in the quarry Kromer (Lower Jurassic) and found some good stuff. As doushantuo says (here: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/73430-three-new-teeth-from-holzmaden/ ) the preparation was a serious dental work Firstly this nice Ichthyosaurus tooth: With a length of 1 cm its not the longest tooth but it has a nice strukture ! The next one is my ere biggest tooth ever from Holzmaden! Its a 2.6 cm long Steneosaurus tooth (at least i think that its a croc tooth). The preparation was very hard and took about 6 hours ... Here is the result:
  21. Three new teeth from Holzmaden

    I want to show three teeth from Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic). I prepped them today although the first one is an older find (but also from this year). The first one is a very small tooth (0.8cm) but well preserved. I am not sure with the determination ... maybe Ichthyosaurus ? The second one is bigger with a length of 1.2 cm. Shadefully its not well preserved and a part is missing Its a crocodile tooth (Steneosaurus): And the last one is the most beautifully tooth ! Its large with a length of 2.1 cm but very thin and i think also a crocodile tooth. It was very to prep this one and i think you can see my mistakes In the middle of the tooth i lost some material Otherwise it would be one of the best tooth in my collection ! Hope you enjoyed and thanks for viewing!
  22. I want to show you some impressions of a short visit in the fossil museum near Dotternhausen. Here is the homepage (in german): http://www.holcim-sued.de/werkforum-fossilienmuseum.html Its one of my favourite museums because there you can see mainly fossils from the "Posidionschiefer". There exists also a quarry for visitors but its closed during winter ... The museum is not that big but also not too small and the entry is free ! Some fossils from the "Posidionschiefer": A huge and spectacular block with crinoids: Detailed (Seirocrinus): There were also many fishes, but i am not satisfied with my photos (they are extremely bad) The Ichthyosaurus fossils were the most interesting for me so here are some pictures ..
