  1. Clawish Big shell or what?

    Found in a rock pool on Yaverland beach, Isle of Wight. I don’t know anything about the local geology but the encasing rock is dark grey, quite hard with a texture similar to concrete. I collected it because it looked clawish and a geologist who happened to come by said it looked dinosaury, though palaeontology isn’t his field! There’s no honeycomb in the cross-sections so I think it looks most like part of a big shellfish, but am clueless really. Any ideas?
  2. Hypsilophodon vert?

    From IoW. Small.. I'm looking to add a few verts to my collection. This is one I am eyeing. If it passes muster. Thanks for the help
  3. Micro print fossils

    Found sifting through little flinty pebbles on South Isle of Wight beaches First, which I am most interested in, was actually found by my landlord. He just picked it up saying "a stone in a stone" but I noticed some striations coming out of the hole. So took it home and pulled the smaller stone out and you can see a teardrop shaped impression with radial striation and pimple markings. Impression is 10mm long by 6mm wide. Second is just a band of tiny circlish markings 3.5x2mm. Third is a little hole with vertical ridges, probably nothing. 4.5x2.5mm And finally a nice echinoid print. I've found something similar years ago and someone posted an even more similar picture of a Temnocidaris species so I'm sure that it's something like that. Area of clearest three circles 6.5x4mm
  4. Help to identify please

    I found this years ago on a school trip on the Isle of Wight, the fossil hunter on our day out wanted to buy it off me, but being a kid I didn’t want to sell it, I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what it is? Also, if it’s worth anything? as he was keen to have it, many thanks, Hannah
  5. Found this lump in the landslip below Blackgang Chine, Isle of Wight. It looked black when damp but has dried grey and so looks like it came from the Gault Clay but there is also Greensand Formation above. Also has some rusty colours on the inside where it looks like it has split in half from a larger cylindrical piece. I guess it’s just a geological formation, but the fibrous looking texture on the surface made me think of teeth and horns. It also appears to have had a cylindrical hollow running through it when complete. Thoughts much appreciated
  6. Isle of Wight - flint ID, Echinoid?

    Found this little flint nodule in the stream below Blackgang Chine, halfway down the coastal landslip there. It has very distinct little pimples in a conical hollow that finishes in a flat surface. It looks very reminiscent of Echinoids, but different to any I’ve seen before. I believe the local strata are gault clay topped with greensand formation. Any ideas? Cheers!
  7. Isle of Wight - Nodule ID, plant?

    Hello. Found this nodule yesterday halfway down the landslip facing the sea in front of Blackgang, IoW. I cracked it open and was surprised to find these very distinct fibres running through. I cracked the bigger lump open this morning revealing a pyrite shaft in the centre. I believe the local strata are greensand formation above gault clay. Since the earth is so churned up down there, it could have come from either. Any ideas? Cheers!
  8. Coprolite

    Hi everybody! These two are my second and third fossil collected in the wild, I'm 94% sure they are both coprolite......what kind? That's where my assuredness plummets. Both were found on the south side of the Isle of Wight on the beach at Brook Bay. I was there in late November of last year and did nighttime search using a UV flashlight. There were some brutal gale force winds, so I was only able to muster enough manliness for 20 minutes on the beach, I made a few discoveries, but these two are choice. I located the lighter coloured one because of uneven fluorescence and located a surface bone fragment, and the dark one because of it's deep purpl-ish glow and unique shape. The lighter one I believe is a crocodylian coprolite, the other I'm sure is coprolite but have no idea if it's from a mammal, dino or something else. Any shared wisdom would be greatly appreciated. Thanks :-D
  9. Partial Sauropod neural process?

    Hi, I was wondering if the id on this piece can be confirmed. It is said to be the top end of the neural process of a Sauropod vertebra. The fossil is quite heavy and large at 24cm and it comes from the Wessex Formation in the Isle of Wight. Thanks in advance!
  10. IoW jaw-bone or just wood?

    I recently bought a lot of 3 unidentified dinosaur "bones" from Isle Of Wight. But one of them have got me in a bit of a pickle. There's not really any cell structure present anywhere, except from one small spot that seems to have some. Which makes me suspect it's wood. But the overall structure of this piece is really puzzling, because it looks like there are sockets or roots from a jaw in it. I hope someone with more knowledge about IoW fossils can maybe explain what this is.
  11. Dinosaur Bone from the Isle of Wight, UK

    A recent find from the stretch of beach between Chilton Chine and Grange Chine on the Isle of Wight, England. It is from the Wessex Formation, about 130 million years old (Early Cretaceous). The bone is quite rolled by the sea but there are still some features remaining and so i was hoping it could still be identified, at least perhaps the type of bone that it is (either the end of some kind of long bone or a metapodial. Length= 4.4 cm; width= 3.8 cm; height= 1.9 cm). I was leaning towards a proximal radius or metatarsal but i would like a second opinion. The shape of the shaft cross section, in the fifth photo, is roughly triangular (where the bone would continue). The most common dinosaurs from this deposit are ornithopods such as Iguanodon and Hypsilophodon, so these would provide the best comparison. Thanks all!
  12. I found these ammonites in the Isle of Wight ~8 years ago, roughly in this condition (bit more mud). I found them on a non-fossil beach, and they are basically what got me into the whole thing. I’d love to know more about them pls! I don’t know the exact beach i found them on, but I know it was a Cretaceous area.
  13. Me and my friends are convinced this isn’t a sand shark tooth. But we can’t agree on what it is, between Cretolamna and Otodus (of course it could be neither, we are idiots)
  14. Iguanodon Cervical Vertebrae

    Here’s a nice iguanodon cervical vertebrae. It’s from the Isle of Wight and is about 4.5 inches long.
  15. 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
  16. 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!
  17. Hi, I found a small fragment of what I think may be dinosaur bone on the Isle of Wight. It was on Gurnard beach on the north of the island. The island is famous for dinosaur fossils, with 20 different species being found on the south beaches. The fragment is roughly 20mm square. One side is half-covered in what looks like reptile skin and the other side has lots of streaks across it. Hopefully photos will help. Thanks.
  18. Isle of Wight jaw?

    My nephew spotted this down at Compton bay on the Isle of Wight. Sorry about the poor photos. The area is early Cretaceous wealden. The fossil is about 1.5-2cm long. Not sure what it could be but hoping it could be some sort of jaw. If anyone has any suggestions it would be most appreciated. Many thanks.
  19. Yarmouth fossil in clay

    I recently went to the Isle of Wight and when I was hunting at Yarmouth beach, I found this on the foreshore amongst the pebbles. The imprint is about 1cm long. Any help you can give would be much appreciated.
  20. planning ahead for a trip in the UK

    Natalie and I are planning our holiday to the UK, We are planning to reside from saturday 20 july to 24 july on the isle of Wight were we went last year. And from the 25th until the 28th we are planning to do either the coast of Sussex or Dorset. This is where the advise of the TFF members come in, what would you advise us to visit, either Dorset or Sussex. Of course if any member is free on one of those dates and is willing to guide us around this would be even better. We also take a bunch of Belgian fossils along for possible trades. (we are especially interested in cephalopods and marine reptiles/dinosaurs ) Cheers Kevin and Natalie
  21. What ptychodus species is this ):

    This is from the Isle of Wight I’m not sure on the age because it is from an old collection with no catalogues Is this mammilaris or marginaris the tooth is roughly 1cmx0.9cm
  22. Isle of Wight Fossils

    Hi all, I found this concretion when I was fossil hunting in Yaverland, Isle of Wight. It appears to have a tooth and bone fragments in it. I was wondering if anyone could help identify what these fossils may have belonged to. Many thanks in advance!
  23. Fossil hunting Isle Of Wight

    Today I went to Compton Bay, Isle of wight. By the time I got there I only had an hour before a storm stopped me. I found a large 23cm section of fossilised wood with some pyrite covering it.
  24. 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!
  25. Isle of Wight bone

    So I found this rolled bone yesterday when wet it’s more noticeable but Their is a groove running along the bone. It has slight curvature. Is it diagnostic of anything to identify what this may have once been?
