  1. Cretaceous bivalve?

    Hi all, I've been spending time walking the beach at Compton, Isle of Wight, UK. I came across this fossil when I was sat down after walking 2 miles and finding nothing! I've not cleaned it up yet. All of the beach is of the cretaceous era, and was found at the Western end of the beach. I've found various Aptian age finds nearby previously. I've looked online,but nothing I've seen has the very symmetrical shape and close together ridges that this has. I'd appreciate any help with this! Many thanks, Steve.
  2. Hi All, I was wondering if someone could help me potentially ID what this is? The seller found the fossil on Brighstone beach, IOW but isn't sure if it is a jaw or tail or something so I thought I would post on the forum to see what everyone thinks. I have no idea what it is but I have my doubts its a jaw or a tail...
  3. Neovenator tooth

    The seller says this tooth is from compton bay on the isle of wight, England. Is it rare or high quality.
  4. Cone from Isle of Wight wealden

    I picked up this pair of flattened cones from the wealden clay at Chilton Chine, Isle of Wight, uk last weekend. I couln’t find a similar hexagonal pattern from photos online or in the books I have on the area. Given the size and shape (roughly 3cm), I was wondering if they may be araucarian? The area is barremian. It’s also in very soft clay, so I’m currently trying to dry it slowly wrapped in damp tissue before adding paraloid with acetone to stabilise it. If a better method is advisable, I would really appreciate any advise. Thanks in advance henry
  5. 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
  6. Request ID for two bone fragments from the Isle of Wight in England. The first one was found in Sandown on the beach near the rocks at Yaverland in the gray sandstone sediments - the Vectis formation from the Wealden Group. From this beach are found crocodile or pterosaur bones. The bone is small and has no endings that could say something more / identify, but maybe something can be said? The second bone is a small fragment of the top layer of some bone. She was found in the same place as above on the beach. I wonder if this is the contemporary bone of an animal? What do you think?

  23. Isle of Wight, Hamstead

    I recently spent a week on the Isle of Wight, mostly to find fossils. To be honest, the fossils were pretty much a washout for me in many respects. My inexperience, combined with very mild weather and calm seas, meant that I didn't find the dinosaur bone I'd been hoping for. I made much better finds in the local book and charity shops! I did recover some huge pieces of lignite, which seemed to litter every beach I found. This even included some huge logs. I have successfully preserved lignite from other locations, but this stuff is quite pyritic. However, I'm happy to say that I was quite fortunate when hunting in the Oligocene beds of Hamstead. This beach is not easy to access - it's difficult to find a means down to the beach, and when you find it, you have to jump down a bank, walk over loads of broken glass, climb over fallen trees and crawl beneath others, and walk in worryingly sticky mud. However, it is worth it! I didn't find a huge amount, but I was fortunate enough to come across these two associated scutes from the alligator Diplocynodon (identified by the very helpful people at Dinosaur Isle). I also found about a dozen pieces of emys turtle shell, these are three of the best. This piece of bone was identified by a chap at Dinosaur Isle as most likely a piece of mammal skull. I didn't get an ID on this - any suggestions would be welcome. It's 1.5cm tall. This is also unidentified, and I'm not certain whether it's a fossil or not. It's 2.5cm long.
  24. IOW indet. crocodile remains

    Thought some might want to see this paper It's a description of a set of indeterminate tethysuchian remains; from the Lower Cretaceous of the Isle of Wight. 2014 Young et al. IoW tethysuchian.pdf @Natalie81 @Birdman @Manticocerasman -Christian
  25. Found on the shoreline in shanklin on the Isle of Wight, UK. Local fossil hunter told me that whilst dinosaur bones are rare, marine reptiles are more common because of the shoreline geology. Found in lower greensand (Cretaceous) deposits. Photograph is difficult to capture the unusual shape - I really have very little clue as to what it could be, I'd be amazed if any detailed identification was possible but would be nice to find out what it vaguely is, even if it's absolutely nothing! The shape definitely strikes me as some kind of joint that has maybe been fractured a long time ago and weathered? Any input would be greatly appreciated!
