  1. Ichthyosaur paddle bones

    From the album Holzmaden

    These are four Ichthyosaur paddle bones from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. The prep was very difficult because the stone was kinda hard. I gave it up several times but now its finally finished. I hitted the bones a few times so its not the nicest piece. Maybe I will try to prep it from the other side one day. Some more pictures:
  2. Found today on the English Yorkshire Coast ( Runswick bay). At first i thought it was maybe layers of a type of fossilised plant but I cant find anything to match the markings on this. Completely baffled by it. Looks very cool though. ID help, please?
  3. What Fossils Alone Can’t Explain About Dinosaurs When time is measured in 10-million-year blocks, the lines between ecosystems and animals that would never have coexisted can get blurry.

  4. Ever wondered what a sturgeon fin looks like cut down the middle and polished? This is from a large fish called Gyrosteus mirabilis that swam in the seas near whitby all them years ago. i think it’s the cartilage. As found Cut straight down the middle, showing the pyrite too.
  5. Ichthyosaur rib part

    From the album Holzmaden

    A small Ichthyosaur rib part from the lower Jurassic of the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden.
  6. Lyme Regis fossil ID

    Hi! I found this on my recent trip to Lyme Regis, UK. It would be Jurassic in age. Found on the beach, so I can’t say what layer it came from unfortunately. Its striations are quite ornate and beautiful, and I’d love to know what it is! Bottom view
  7. Steneosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 2 cm long Steneosaurus tooth (crocodile) from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany). Sadly its a bit damaged. Another picture:
  8. Hi! I’m currently in Lyme Regis, UK and will be here for a few more (I’ll hopefully be adding to this thread as it goes on!) My parents and I arrived into town yesterday, but before we even could do that, we missed the bus due to a slightly delayed train ride. So we decided to take a short stop in the cafe at the station and was met by this massive beauty. It was great to be greeted by Mary Anning before we even made it to Lyme Regis! Our bus finally came (after a great lunch!) and we were on our merry way! Once we got into town, it was lovely weather - sunny and windy - even though it’s been quite stormy here the past week or so apparently! Makes for good fossil hunting! Unfortunately it was high tide when we arrived so we couldn’t go hunting, but we walked along the Marine Parade along the people beach and ate the best scallops I’ve ever had. In the background, you can see the cliffs of the Jurassic Coast, where Mary Anning found the first Ichthyosaur. The whole town is peppered with fossil shops and paraphernalia, even the light posts are ammonites!
  9. Ichthyosaur tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    Here is a 1.5 cm long Ichthyosaur tooth with a nice structure from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany). Another picture:
  10. Ichthyosaur paddle bones

    From the album Holzmaden

    These are four Ichthyosaur paddle bones and another Ichthyosaur bone from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. The Ichthyosaur paddle bones are about 5 cm big so not too small. There are also a lot of belemnites on the plate. Because of them the prep work was kinda time intensive. It took about six hours to reveal everything. Here are some more pictures:

    Here is a little (about 1 cm long) Ichthyosaur tooth from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Germany).

  14. Hey all, I thought I would make a thread to show some of my shark teeth that I have collected from the Oxford Clay formation (mainly the Peterborough Member), feel free to comment if I have misidentified anything! Pre-Apologies, some of them are quite small.. Cheers, Jacob.

  17. Our fossil hunting holiday trip

    Natalie81 and I are back from our fossil hunting holiday. On the 20th of july we left for a long camping and fossil hunting week in the UK, we took the ferry in Calais to Dover, drove to Porthsmouth and the 2nd ferry to our 1st stop: 5 days on the Isle of wight. the 1st day on the Island, we prospected the beaches on the the south west of the isle where the Wealden cliffs could deliver some dinosaur remains.We had no luck this time. the 2nd day we went to the southern part of the Island where we could find some cenomanian ammonites in the chalk. This time we had better luck, and we found lots of them and even a few nautiluses. There was a sealion in the water not far from where we were prospecting, but since it was yawning a lot I don't think he was very interested in our activities Day 3 was a stop in Yaverland, here we found some hybodont remains and a possible pterosaur tooth ( we will know for sure after the prep ), in the afternoon we went a bit further to Whiteclif bay where we found a few echinoids. Day 4 Back to those Wealden cliffs in search for dinosaur material, again in vain, but we did se al those impresive Iguanodon foottracks at Hanover point. later on the day we tried to find the lobster bed near Atherfield, but only a few parts were accesible, but I found a nice big lobster in situ, it came out in a few pieces. I had super glue in my backpack, so I glued the parts back together and stuffed the fossil safely away in a box with soft paper. It is still in that box now, so I hope it wil still be ok when I start prepping it. Day 5: we had a meetup with a local colector to prospect the beaches on the north of the island, those were Oligocene deposits and we did find a lot of turtle fragments, a few croc scutes and even a few croc teeth Day 6: we had our ferry back to the mainland of the UK, from there we drove further to the jurassic coast. In the afternoon we went on the Beach between Dorset and Lyme Regis, but the beaches were full of tourists looking for fossils, so the finds were poor. Day 7: we visited Eype, and Golden cap, not far from Dorset, again verry few finds due to overprospected beaches, but we did find a decent ammonite. In the evening We visited the town of Lyme Regis and the birthplace of Mary Anning Day 8: this time e went east of Dorset, still very few fossils to be seen, but still multiple good belemnites , some of them still in the matrix. Day 9: time to pack the tent and drive back to Dover, we still had time before taking our ferry back to France so we did a quick stop in Folkestone. 2 hours of prospecting in the gault clay did deliver 2 decent ammonites and lots of ammonite fragments, belemnites and inoceramus shells. I didnt take a lot of pictures of the fossils we found yet, but we took a few ones in the field. more pictures will follow when we start unpacking and prepping the fossils from this week. Shipping to Dover: vieuw on the camping from Wight: of to the beach: no fossils to be seen Lots of beach to prospect: Still looking for bone in the shingle: sunset on Wight: to the cenomanian chalk: ammonites the Sealion: possible pterosaur tooth: footprints Oligoceene deposits: A vieuw on Wight before we leave: Dorset and Lyme regis: Ammonites everywhere Mary Anning:
  18. Echinoid (Jurassic)

    From the album Fossil Collection

  19. Hi all! I've been active in the field for a bit but I've been MIA for a while, dealing with personal life. BUT I have come back online. Have some adventures I have yet to post. So if you're curious about the geology of that part of the world from the eyes of this Canadian hobbit, swing by my blog. Don't be shy and subscribe if you want to keep updated. I'll try to add some of the blog info in this forum too so that I can reach as many folks as possible so they can see the amazing stuff in my backyard.

  20. Echinoid | Hemicidaris?

    From the album Fossil Collection

  21. Hi all, Last week I had theopportunity to visit the place once again (first described here). Unfortunately the trip went way worse than I expected. I knew the water was high, but was not prepared enough. I thought with high water I could still access small beaches and concentrate on small stuff - not necessarily big bones and verts, but maybe teeth, echinoids, crustacean fragments etc. I hoped having seen the pictures from the forum I woudn't miss interesting material. Having arrived to the coast I immediately saw the passage was blocked by fallen and washed ashore trees. I surely tried to move along but didn't make it far due to numerous trees, slippery clay and algal bloom.
