  1. Finished this today. Initially I was going to extract the vert and have it without matrix and then I saw the stunning crinoid bits, I love the pentacrinites stars. Found two ribs too so that was a real bonus. While the vert was easy to remove matrix from, it just pinged off, strangely to me at least the larger bone was sticky. There is a bit of matrix still on it but I've added some acrylic ink so it doesn't stand out too much. A light coat of Paraloid (10%ish) was added to all but the vert.
  2. some of the fossils i find within the lusitan Basin and other deposits. hope you enjoy
  3. Hello, I found this tooth in a jurassic formation (tithonian) in Torres Vedras - Portugal. It's the first time I found a tooth like this. I don't know if it's croc or maybe pliosaurus?
  4. Hi I found this the other day in a jurassic/cretaceous formation in valencia (spain) but I,m not sure if it's a worn out ammonite or something else. Any ideas? Thanks for your help! it came from inside a rock like this one, as you can see there are pseudogrammoceras and other marine fossils:
  5. Volcanic eruptions triggered dawn of the dinosaurs (Huge pulses of volcanic activity are likely to have played a key role in triggering the end Triassic mass extinction, which set the scene for the rise and age of the dinosaurs, new Oxford University research has found.)

  7. Thrissops formosus, a member of the family Ichthyodectidae (literally "fish-biters"), was a swift-swimming predatory fish with streamlined body and deeply clefted caudal fin from the Lithographic Limestone deposits around Solnhofen, Germany. Dorsal and anal fins are broad based and attached behind the body's midpoint. The anal fin is diagonally attached slightly before the dorsal fin.
  8. Hi all, I got those ammonites from @cheney416 in a blind trade. They come from Morocco, but the exact location is unknown. Apparently they are from the Bajocian stage of the Jurassic; 170 mya), but I can't find any Jurassic locations in Morocco containing ammonites... Does anyone know what species these are, and what location they could come from? Thanks, Max
  9. Identified by Prof Wang Yuan, Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology, Beijing with the following remarks: 'The phalangeal formula for Chunerpeton is variable. This specimen falls in the range as I observed hundreds of specimens of this genus and species. One problem is that, as I noted in the last email, Gao and Shubin (2012) named Beiyanerpeton jianpingensis but it is actually a Chunerpeton by my judgement. The salamander you send to me should be from the same region, but a different quarry as "Beiyanerpeton".' The white mass next to the mouth seems to be either a regurgitate or a coprolite. Lit.: K.-Q.

  10. I found some great stuff yesterday, but I'm stumped with this one. It is a two dimensional stain in the clay, there are three pieces of it, and I think it is perhaps a burrow, or a trace fossil of some kind. I've seen things I thought were burrows before, but they didn't look like this, so perhaps I was wrong in those instances? Or a different type of burrow. It's a very dark circular mark in the clay. The images without a scale are taken with my microscope camera. ETA Forgot the important bit! Oxford Clay, Peterborough Member, lower Jurassic. They've put new clay in the fossil hunting area, and I'm unsure which layer this is.

  12. I picked this up a year ago as it is convex on both sides and looks a bit like a vertebra. It's from the Jurassic Callovian Lower Oxford Clay at Yaxley, and a year on I still can't decide if it's just a suggestively shaped rock or a very worn vertebra. It's really hard to show the convex shape in the photos. ETA: I meant concave, not convex

  18. Hi everyone, Althought I,m a big fan of paleontology I,m still new in this world and sometimes I,m not sure about what I find. I go fossil hunting to a mountain in Valencia, Spain, where I usually find some kinds of ammonites and belemnites. As far as I know the strats in that mountain are jurassic/cretaceous. The other day I found this but I,m not sure if it's a fossil or just a weird rock formation. Any ideas? Thanks for your help!
  19. Hello everyone, Today I was going through all my older fossils, and I found this in my box of ammonites. Obviously this isn't one, and I must have put it in that box by mistake. It looks a lot like a coprolite to me, but I have no clue from what animal. Unfortunately I don't remember anymore where I found it. There are two possibilities: either from Lyme Regis (UK), or from one of the Cretaceous beaches on the Isle of Wight. Any clue to what it could be, and maybe what location? Best regards, Max
  20. From Wikipedia: "Members of the order are distinguished by possessing two dorsal fins, an anal fin, five gill slits, eyes without nicititating membranes, and a mouth extending behind the eyes. Also, unlike other sharks, they maintain a higher body temperature than the surrounding water".

  21. Just got back from a weeklong trip to Southern Germany in pursuit of ammonites and other Jurassic marine fossil fauna. Accompanied by my fellow collector, Ralph and his friend, Aza we arrived at the Zurich airport and headed straight to Lake Constance and the home of TFF member Roger (Ludwigia) to observe his incredible collection and receive advice about collecting spots in southern Germany. Fortunately, I'm fluent in Canadian. This is Aza, Roger, and Ralph at Roger's home:

  23. Hi, I'm new here. I found this interesting Nanosaurus Rex skull for sale. The Seller says it is from Emery, Utah and he says it is real. Sorry for my English because I am from China. Please help me identify if this real. Thanks!
