  1. Iguanodon Cervical Vertebrae

    Here’s a nice iguanodon cervical vertebrae. It’s from the Isle of Wight and is about 4.5 inches long.
  2. Last year there was a special edition of the "EOS"-magasine about the site of Bernisart in Belgium where 32 complete Iguanodon skeletons were found in 1878 along with crocodile, turtle and fish fossils. That specific magazine contained a poster of 2 drawings of that discovery one side with an Iggy skull and the other side with a crocodile fossil. I finaly took time to buy 2 frames to put those posters in
  3. Dinosaur Bone ID

    Hi Here is an interesting fossil. I purchased this as an unprepped, probable iguanodon toe bone. Now I’m well into the prep, I’m not so sure that it’s a tie bone but I think I know what it is. Any suggestions welcome. Thanks Nick
  4. Iguanodon Bone?

    Hey everyone, I just purchased this Iguanodon Bone and I was wondering if the ID was correct or even if it is dinosaur bone. Apparently it was found in the Wealden Clay in the Isle of Wight, UK. The front side has been polished, unlike the back side. Thanks!
  5. Dinosaur bone Compton bay

    Hi, yesterday I found a chunk of dinosaur bone at compton bay. Should I be worried about it crumbling because it has pyrite inside it?
  6. A new dinosaur book is now out online: https://www.amazon.com/Story-Dinosaurs-25-Discoveries-Amazing/dp/0231186029 https://cup.columbia.edu/book/the-story-of-the-dinosaurs-in-25-discoveries/9780231186025 This volume discusses in depth not just the first dinosaurs to be named, but also significant dinosaur discoveries that forever molded our knowledge of dinosaur diversity as we know it today, from Sinosauropteryx, the diplodocids, T. rex, Spinosaurus, Heterodontosaurus, Stegoceras, Triceratops, and Protoceratops. It also happens to include the recently described giant titanosaur Patagotitan, now seen as probably the biggest dinosaur that ever lived (after recognition that Maraapunisaurus is probably not as humongous as previously thought).
  7. Hi everyone, I need some help identifying something I found yesterday when I went through my newly acquired fossil matrix. Some information on the matrix, it came from the Hastings Bone beds, Weald Clay, Wealden of Bexhill, Wealden Supergroup, Bexhill, Sussex, UK (Cretaceous, Valanginian, 135 million years old) To me when I found it, it looked like skin, not like the crocodile scutes I am familiar with , but really more like skin. But since I am not really an expert on the matter is doesn't really matter what I think it might look like. I do know dinosaur fossils are common there and I do believe skin has been found on that location before (at least footprints with scale impressions) Does anyone have a clue on what it might be? Skin (reptillian, dinosaurian, pterosaur, shark, fish)? Skull plate of a fish? a croc scute? a mouthpart of a fish? Something entirely else? Thank you in advance, and I am very eager to hear what you guys think about it, no matter the outcome, I am very excited to find out what it is.
  8. I recently saw the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences have been posting a series of videos on their facebook page highlighting the Iguanodons of Bernissart and I thought you guys might find it interesting One thing i found very interesting is that the iguanodons even had skin preserved, which was something I didn't know before watching
  9. Hello my name is Tijn. I love Dinosaurs and am already building a decent collection. I already have most species from the Hell Creek Formation, Lance Formation and Judith River Formation. I am mainly interested in species from the Jurassic, triassic or early cretaceous. I've got a couple Dinosaur fossils and shark teeth im willing to trade. I am not looking for anything big but small partial Bones and teeth are fine! Who can help me out? P.S. ill make some pictures of the material i am willing to trade later. Thanks in advance Tijn
  10. Iguanodon Jaw Fossil

    Is this an Iguanodon jaw fossil? If so how rare is it?
  11. Isle of Wight dinosaur bone ID

    Hi, I just saw this vertebra online and decided to buy it, as I have wanted an Isle of Wight fossil for a very long time now. The vertebra was listed as an Iguanodon tail vertebra and it was found in The Wealden Clays, Wessex Formation, The Wealden Group, Chilton Chine, Isle of Wight, UK (130 million years old, Cretaceous) Overall Size = 5.1 cm (2 inches) long by 5.1 cm (2 inches) wide by 8.2 cm (3.25 inches) high. I know there are a few very knowledgeable people on this forum when it comes to ID'ing dinosaur bones, so my question is: is the ID correct on this bone? Is it truly Iguanodontid (Mantellisaurus or Iguanodon) or is it from another of the many dinosaurs that can be found on the Isle of Wight? Or should I just label it as Dinosaur vertebra? Thank you in advance!
  12. I hope you all had a good Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year. I thought I’d treat myself to a Christmas fossil this year. It’s an iguanodon humerus (maybe Mantellisaurus now) from the Isle of Wight. The humerus is about 700 mm long, so pretty big and heavy. I got a local blacksmith to make the stand for me and I picked it up today. Regards Nick
  13. Iguanodontid paper request

    Hi folks, I'm after 'A taxonomy of iguanodontians (Dinosauria: Ornithopoda) from the lower Wealden Group (Cretaceous: Valanginian) of southern England'. Seems to be paywalled everywhere I look. :/
  14. 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)
  15. Hi everyone, I was just scrolling facebook a few moments ago and came across a few posts by the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences and saw that there is a new documentary series about the museum itself on Canvas, the series is called "Er was eens" and the first episode that will air today at 19u will be all about the fossil collection including the Iguanodons of Bernissart & Plateosaurus Ben. So maybe a tip for everyone that has the network "Canvas" in Belgium & the Netherlands. https://vimeo.com/297901181?fbclid=IwAR2F5eIbYwzRKCAtfwcYIG8EZsXwZZF2nUhtUPw3dIYAQem_YrSLLP-t3TQ And the museum also posted that the science magazine EOS will do a 82 pages big special on the iguanodons of Bernissart, maybe another tip for all the belgian & dutch member, I'll definiatly get myself a copy!
  16. Mantellisaurus bone

    Evening folks. Here’s a chunk of I’m sure is M. Atherfieldensis found at err Atherfield on The Isle of Wight during my trip there last week. I’m thinking bottom end of fibula but not sure. @Troodon @jpc @LordTrilobite
  17. Vertebra, possibly Neovenator?

    In a general pm chat with @Haravex I showed him some Isle of Wight vertebrae. With this one Matt wasn’t convinced that I was right on my ID which I was leaning towards juvenile iggy. Now looking at it I agree with him. Let’s get a few more opinions. Brook Bay, Isle of Wight, Lower Cretaceous, Wessex Formation
  18. A unique opportunity for all dino - fans to participate in the excavation of a rare Cretaceous dinosaur https://www.peterboroughtoday.co.uk/news/help-march-dinosaur-experts-uncover-prehistoric-secrets-of-indie-1-8383698
  19. Dinosaur skeleton discovered under Surrey brick factory. Near-complete fossilised skeleton of 132m-year-old creature, believed to be an Iguanodon, has been taken to special laboratory for further investigation. Nicola Davis, The Guardian, July 4, 2017 https://www.theguardian.com/science/2017/jul/04/dinosaur-remains-surrey-iguanodon Yours, Paul H.
  20. Hi folks, Can anyone here help me verify which side maxilla this Iguanodon Bernissartensis tooth crown is from? I think it's a left maxillary tooth crown, based on David Norman's illustrated right maxillary, but I'd like to make sure. Tooth is from the Brook Bay Isle of Wight. Wessex Fm. Wealdon Group (Supergroup?)
  21. Yesterday my daughter invited some friends from school for her birthday party, she was allowed to chose where we would go with her froends, and it turned out to be the "dinosaur museum" in Brussels. Here are a few pictures of our visit: Say hello to Iguanodon bernisartensis, one of the 32 complete skeletons found in a mine near the french border. Those 32 specimens form one of the major dinosaur finds in europe. Note that the positions of the specimens are incorrect, they used the skeleton of a kangaroo and an emu as inspiration. This one is in a more natural position: a few more pictures of our visit: Some Belgian Mosasaurs: And of course the compulsary souvenier shop
  22. Iguanodon Jaw Section

    Hello all, I have a lot of unique dinosaur fossils from the Isle Of Wight (since I have a job on the island, and have been visiting there since I was of a young age) dinosaur remains are fairly abundant, however most of the time the larger more defined pieces are lost at sea or "beach rolled" (however I must admit you can get some really nice beach rolled pieces that show stunningly beautiful cell structures!). This jaw fragment if my memory serves me correctly was lying in a box in a locals garage (I believe the local passed away) the box was then given to a small museum on the island and they sorted through the fossils in there and found this. I must make clear that no fossils are passed onto private collectors if they are of any scientific value/worth, the paleontologists that run the museum are very passionate but they do understand that they cannot keep everything, and the money goes towards the upkeep of the museum and the more precious fossils that it houses. (This jaw is highly fragile and had to be treated carefully because it was starting to fall apart we all agree that it's a shame that no teeth where found within it. However if you look at the photographs you can see clearly an "impression" caused by one of the teeth before it came apart from the jaw itself that's how it was confidently ID'd as being iguanodon in origin.) Hope this is of some interest to some!
